  1. Sir,
    In terms of O.M. F.No.7/14/2010-E.III (A)dated 5th July, 2010, employees may be permitted to revise their initial option upto 31.12.2010 if the option is more beneficial to them. As per Rule 5 of the VI CPC Rules, this option to switch over to the revised pay structure from a date later than 1.1.2006 is available to a Government Servant:
    (i) Who elects to continue to draw pay in the existing scale until the date on which he earns his next or any subsequent increment in the existing scale or until he vacates his post or ceases to draw pay in that scale.
    Does this imply that an employee promoted on 1st March 2010 (i.e., after the issue of Notification during August, 2008) can continue to draw the pay under V CPC upto 28th March 2010 when he vacates his post and ceases to draw pay in that scale and switch over to VI CPC from 13th January 2010?

  2. Sir,
    In terms of O.M. F.No.7/14/2010-E.III (A)dated 5th July, 2010, “as per Rule 5 of these Rules, this option to switch over to the revised pay structure from a date later than 1.1.2006 is available to a Government Servant:
    (i) Who elects to continue to draw pay in the existing scale until the date on which he earns his next or any subsequent increment in the existing scale or until he vacates his post or ceases to draw pay in that scale.

    (ii) who has been placed in a higher pay scale between 1.1.2006 and the date of notification of these Rules on account of promotion, upgradation of pay scale etc. the Government servant may elect to switch over to the revised pay structure from the date of such promotion, up-gradation etc.”

    Does it imply that if a Govt. servant gets promoted beyond the date of notification of VI CPC (for instance, 01.03.2010), will he be eligible to continue in pre-revised scale (V CPC) till 29.02.2010 and can opt to come over to VI CPC from 01.03.2010 as indicated under (a) above?
