Dear Sir,

Sub: Cases of promotion taking place in the pre-revised pay structure between 01.01.2006 and the date of notification of RS(RP)Rules, 2008 and the subsequent merger of the pre-revised pay scales of the promotional and feeder posts in a common grade – Fixation of Pay – Reg.

Ref.: MoF(Deptt. of Exp.)’s OM No.7/14/2010-E.III(A) dated 05.07.2010 and OM No.F-2-1/2015-E.III (A) dated 16.10.2015

Kindly call for my earlier letter of even number dated 18th January, 2018(copy enclosed), through which your kind attention was drawn towards MoF(Deptt. of Exp.)’s OM No.-F-2-1/2015-E.III(A) dated 16.10.2015, whereby it was decided that, in cases where promotion took place in the pre-revised pay structure during the period between 01.01.2006 and the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rule, 2008 and subsequently promotional grade merged with the feeder grade consequent upon promulgation of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, the benefit of pay fixation shall be allowed under Rule-13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008.

In this connection, it is stated that, some of the government employees, who have got promotion/financial upgradation between 01.01.2006 and date of notification of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, exercised their option to switch over to 6th CPC from the date of such promotion/financial upgradation, instead of 01.01.2006 as per option provided vide Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM supra dated 05.07.2010, as the same was more beneficial to them at that time. In this connection, it is pertinent to mention here that, initially they opted to switch over to revised pay structure w.e.f 01.01.2006 prior to issuance of OM dated 05.07.2010. As they were not aware with the fact that any such benefit of pay fixation under Rule-13 would be extended in future as has been provided vide Deptt of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015, then they would not have exercised their option to switch over to CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 w.e.f. from their respective dates promotion/ financial upgradation, as per the option provided vide Deptt of Expenditure’s OM dated 05.07.2010.

Further, as per instruction of Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015, the benefit of pay fixation is being allowed under Rule-13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 in those cases where promotional/financial upgradation took place in the pre-revised pay structure between 01.01.2006 and the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rule, 2008.

However, benefit of pay fixation allowed under Rule-13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, as the provision of Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015, is not being extended to those employee who have opted to switched over to the Railway Servant(RP) Rules, 2008, with effect from the date of promotional/financial upgradation instead of 01.01.2006, by exercising the option made available vide Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 05.07.2010 (as mentioned in para 2 above), although fulfilling other conditions for getting the benefit of fixation as per the instructions contained in Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015.

It has also come to our knowledge that, some of the Railways have made a reference on this issue, seeking clarification regarding extending the benefit of the above-mentioned fixation to these employees after providing opportunity for re-option to switched over to the RS(RP) 2008 (or CCS(RP)Rule, 2008) w.e.f. 01.01.2006 instead of any subsequent date opted earlier. It is also understood that, Railway Board (Ministry of Railways) has referred this clarification to the Deptt. of Expenditure(Ministry of Finance).

Earlier, in similar cases, whenever Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM brings about a material change in the basis for exercise of option to come over to revised pay structure/unforeseen developments and change of rule in terms of the CCS(Revised Pay) Rules, opportunity to revise their option to come over to revised pay structure has always been given(as it was given through Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 03.11.2013).

Also, it is also is heard that, DoPT is agreed that, re-fixation of pay for merged post under Rule-13 of CCS(RP) Rules-2008, on the basis of Department of Expenditure’s OM No.-F-2-1/2015-E.III(A) dated-16.10.2015, were unforeseen developments/change of rule. This brings a material change in the basis for exercise of option to come over to the revised pay structure.

Hence, it is very clear that, Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015, brings a material change in the basis for exercise of option to come over to revised pay structure, unforeseen developments and change of rule in terms of the Railway Services(Revised Pay) Rules, 2008. Hence, it is demanded that, opportunity to revise their option to come over to revised pay structure, under the rule of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, w.e.f. 01.01.2006, may be given to those employees who are covered under the said letter dated 16.10.2015, as it is more beneficial for them as now.

In view of the above, it is requested that, necessary clarifications in this regard may kindly be communicated to all the Ministries/Departments of the Government of India, so that, aggrieved staff can get an opportunity to re-exercise their option, under Rule-6 of the CCS(RP) Rule, 2008, to switch over to CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, w.e.f. 01.01.2006, and get benefit of pay fixation provided vide Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015, so as to avoid financial loss to the affected staff.

Dear Sir,

Ref.: (i) Deptt. of Expenditure, MoF’s OM No.7/14/2010-E.III(A) dated 05.07.2010 and OM No.F-2- 1/2015-E.III(A) dated 16.10.2015

Through this missive, your kind attention is drawn towards Department of Expenditure’s OM No.-F-2-1/2015-E.III(A) dated 16.10.2015, whereby it was decided that, in cases where promotion took place in the pre-revised pay structure during the period between 01.01.2006 and the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rule, 2008 and subsequently promotional grade merged with the feeder grade consequent upon promulgation of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, the benefit of pay fixation shall be allowed under Rule 13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008.

In this connection, it is stated that, some of the government employees, who have got promotion/financial upgradation between 01.01.2006 and date of notification of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, exercised their option to switch over to 6th CPC from the date of such promotion/financial upgradation instead of 01.01.2006 as per option provided vide Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 05.07.2010, as the same was more beneficial to them at that time. In this connection, it is pertinent to mention here that, initially they opted to switch over to revised pay structure w.e.f 01.01.2006 prior to issuance of OM dated 05.07.2010.

Now, as per instruction of the Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015, the benefit of pay fixation is being allowed under Rule-13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, in those cases where promotional/financial upgradation took place in the pre-revised pay structure between 01.01.2006 and the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rule, 2008 and who opted 6th CPC w.e.f. 01.01.2006.

However, it has to come to our knowledge that, the benefit of pay fixation allowed under Rule-13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, as per the provision of Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015, is not being extended to those employee who have opted to switched over to the Railway Servant (RP) Rules, 2008 with effect from the date of promotional/financial upgradation instead of 01.01.2006 by exercising the option made available vide Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 05.07.2010(as mentioned in para 2 above), although fulfilling other conditions for getting the benefit of fixation as per the instructions in Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015.

It has also come to our knowledge that, some of the Railways have made a reference on this issue seeking clarification regarding extending the benefit of the above mentioned fixation to these employees after providing opportunity for re-option to switched over to the RS(RP) 2008 (or CCS(RP) Rule, 2008) w.e.f. 01.01.2006 instead of any subsequent date opted earlier. It is also understood that, Railway Board (Ministry of Railways) has referred this issue of revision of option to switch over to the 6th CPC in view of unforeseen events etc. to the Deptt. of Expenditure(Ministry of finance). Despite elapse of more than 12 months, no response has been received in this regard from Deptt. of Expenditure(Ministry of Finance) to resolve the genuine demands of these employees.

In this connection, it is stated that as these are the unforeseen developments or change of rule, the opportunity to revise option for fixation under the Rule of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 may be given to these employees in these conditions, as it is more beneficial for them as now. Had they were aware with the fact that any such benefit of pay fixation would be extended in future (as has been provided vide Deptt of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015), they would not have exercised their option to switch over to CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 w.e.f. from their respective dates of promotion/financial upgradation as per the option provided vide Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 05.07.2010.
