Option to Switch Over to 7th CPC and 6th CPC

Item No. 8

Extending the benefit of option to Central Government Employees to switch over to the 7th CPC Pay Scale from a date beneficial to the employees and also for extending revised option for the employees who were given entry pay benefit on promotion in the 6th CPC Pay Scale to switch over to 6th CPC Pay Scale w.e.f. 01.01.2006.

At the outset we are thankful to the Department of Expenditure for issuing an Instruction dated 04.07.2023 allowing another opportunity to Government employees to exercise / re-exercise option for pay fixation as allowed under O.M. dated 28.11.2019 within a period of three months from the date of issue of this Office Memorandum. However, the following two issues represented by the Secretary Staff Side of the National Council (JCM) is remaining unsettled despite our repeated request in the meetings of the Standing Committee of National Council (JCM).

Granting of one more option to switch over to 7th CPC Pay Scale

1) Granting of one more option to switch over to 7th CPC Pay Scale from a date subsequent to 25th of July, 2016 (Ref. Minutes of National Anomaly Committee Meeting held on Tuesday, 17th July, 2018 circulated vide DOP&T OM No. 11/2/-JCA-1 (Pt.) dated 31** of January, 2019). Kindly refer also to Secretary / Staff Side / National Council (JCM) Letter No. NC- JCM-2017/Fin dated 05th of March, 2019.

2) Grant of revision of option after grant of Entry Pay to the promotes in accordance with Department of Expenditure OM No. 8-23/2017- E.III dated 28th of September, 2018. Kindly refer to Secretary / National Council (JCM) Letter No. NC-JCM-2022/Fin. (Opt) dated 23rd of June, 2022.

Since, the above two major issues are not yet settled, the employees are agitated and some of them are planning for litigation in the matter. As these two demands are genuine and there is no much financial implication in both the cases it is requested that the Department of Expenditure may kindly consider our request favourably and arrange to issue necessary instructions for extending the benefit of option as a onetime measure so that a major outstanding issues pending in the National Council (JCM) stands resolved.
