Date of next increment
I got my 2nd Macp on 1st July 2015.As in 6th CPC regime, there was only one date of increment i.e. 1st July so I was supposed to get the next increment on 1st July 2016 which I got.
But, recently department of expenditure in its order dated 28th November, 2019 clarified that if a person is promoted or financially upgraded between 2nd January and 1st July, he will get next increment on 1st January i.e. on completion of six months of qualifying service. The date of effect of the order is 1st January 2016.
In my case, I was financially upgraded on 1st July 2015 but completed six months of qualifying service on 1st January 2016 which is also date of effect of 7th CPC as well as doe order.
So, what will be my date of next increment? 1st January or 1st July?
