Calculate before Giving Option for Revising 7th CPC Pay

Giving Option for revision of 7th CPC Pay is a must and important thing to be done by Central Government Employees in respect of implementation of 7th Pay Commission recommendations

Your 7th CPC Pay will be revised as per the Option you choose to revise your Pay

There are Two options provided in option form

1 . I ___________________________________ hereby elect the revised pay structure with effect from 1st January 2016

2. I, __________________________________ hereby elect to continue on Pay band and Grade Pay of my substantive / officiating post mentioned below until:
* the date of my next increment/the date of my subsequent increment raising my pay to Rs ________________ / I vacate or cease to draw pay in the existing pay structure / the date of my next promotion/upgradation to the post of _________________________

Normally it has been advised by the administrative Department that …

For Option -I

The Government servants those who are not getting Promotion or Upgradation between 1st January 2016 to 1st July 2016 should select No.1 Option i.e electing to revise the Pay with effect from 1.1.2016

For Option -II

The Government servants those who got Promotion / upgradation in the Period between 2st January 2016 and 1st July 2016 will have to select any one of the conditions given in Option No.2 after working out their Pay as per the choices given. Because which Option is beneficial to them is depends on the Basic Pay and Period of Service in the Pre revised Scale. The cases may vary individual to individual.

It is to be noted that one can choose to revise his pay from his next Increment date in Normal Conditions also. Because if revising the pay after granting one increment is beneficial than revising pay from 1st January 2016, he will be allowed to choose the option of I elect to continue on Pay band and Grade Pay of my substantive post until the date of my next increment.

It is observed that selecting revising pay from the Date of next increment in second Option is beneficial in rare cases.

But one important thing to be kept in mind before opting Options other than 1st January 2016

In all Options other than 1st January 2016 YOU SHOULD BE READY TO FORGO ARREARS FOR THE PERIOD FROM 1ST JANUARY TO THE DATE YOU SELECT TO REVISE YOUR PAY.

If you are ready to forego arrears, then you calculate your pay on 1st January 2016 and 1st July 2016 with an increment and select which one is beneficial to you and go according to that. How to calculate in normal conditions if there is no promotion involved…[ Click to Continue ]

  2. Sir Tha.inks for your prompt reply Please clarify in above mentioned fixation what will bey next Iincrementdate in 2017 if I opt for option 2 that is 7 pay fixation from July 2016

  3. As per your statement, you are getting Rs.76500 on 1st July 2016 in Both the Options. Then there is no need to go for Option -II with forgoing Arrears. Check yourself and decide

  4. Sir. My date of retirement is 31 Jan 2025 If my option is 1 than mybasicpay in 7 PC ason 1 July 2016 will be level 6 column 27 of pay matrix is 76500. If I opt for option 2 my basic pay in 7PC ason1 July2016 is Level 6 colum27 of pay matrix is 76500 So if I opt for options 2 even if I forgo my arrears I will be getting one extra increment at the time of retirement If my option is 1 I may not get increment benefit at retirement date Please comment.

  5. There is no clarity in respect of employees who have been granted Financial up gradation w.e.f. 1.7.16. In my case I was drawing a basic salary of 25830/-(PB-Ii with GP 4800) till 30.6.16 . from 1.7.16 I have been granted financial up gradation in PB-III(GP 5400). Now my basic pay has been fixed as 28010/-. I am confused as to which date I should opt for 7th CPC implementation either 1.1.16 or 1.7.16. I may kindly be advised suitably.
