As per the available orders of 7th CPC one can opt:-
(i)                 Fixation of pay form 01.01.2016
(ii)               Continue to draw in old scale up to next increment
(iii)             (or) subsequent increment.
(iv)             Those who got promoted / MACP granted  during 01.01.2016 to 25.07.2016 (date of issue of orders) can opt to fix pay with DNI and exercise FR22(i)(a)(i).

 But ambiguity for the following cases :-
MACPs are not promotions only financial up gradations. These are not granted in systematic convene of DPCs for more and more cases.  Orders are being issued with retrospective date of implementation.  Let one X got MACP for completion of  20 years of  Service on 04.06.2016 and MACP orders for this up gradation would have been granted on 01.12.2016.  (let exercise of one month revised  option also completed) . In such cases what is the criteria for pay fixation. Due to administrative failures  (or) other reasons / state bifurcation issues many more promotions for DPCs could have not been completed in more departments.

Very important and grave in equality option for pay fixation for promotion / up gradation from G.pay Rs.2800 to G.pay Rs. 4200/- cases:-
The variation in G.pay in 6th CPC from Rs.2800 to Rs. 4200/- is more compared to other pay grades.  The officials those who were recruited during  the years 2016 and 2017 are eagerly waiting for MACPs (for completion of 20 years) for jump in G.pay Rs.4200/- Some cases up to 25.07.2016 have no problem for fixation point of view.  After this cru(al)cial date all comes under this years are financially losing much more amount compared to  few months seniors to them.  Due to forcible fixation from 01.01.2016 each and every one losing  Rs.5000/- (approximately- pay & allow.) in pay every month. And finally there will be recurrence of loss in pension and retirement benefits.  The issue was explained in previous articles in this blog by taking example for  Rs.16490/- (g.pay Rs.2800) promoted to Rs.4200. This was highlighted by NFPE  while wrote a letter to Secretary on this issue.  It is welcoming issue to union point of view first taken up for welfare of their members.  
What is the Loss to the officials ???    What is the gain to the Departments  ???
By opting this option  one who can forego 7th cpc arrears up to pay fixation date.  For those who drawing in G.pay 2800/- promoted to Rs.4200/- case due to forego of arrears minimum loss  is Rs.50000/- Max loss (up to 01.01.2017) is Rs.120000/- ( approximate) .  This is not a financial burden issue to the department.  All most all falls under this period are ready to forego in light of their long balance of career.  
    There is a need to take up this issue by all other unions/ associations for the sake of their members/ officials.  Hence govt. may think and issue revised options for those who got promoted from 26.07.2016 to DNI (01.07.2017) with pay fixation & exercise FR22(i)(a)(i).  The above issue not only for grade pay 2800 to 4200 but  also for other grade pays.   If this option issue not settled by the way of appeals the Unions have no other option to put this an item of demand in forthcoming strikes.    ( by M.S.Reddy, Ex-Accountant )
