For example: An employee who got promotion after 1.1.2006 opts for promotion date as per rule FR22(I)(a)1 (recommended in Vth pay commission) and gets new basic pay after fixation.

So the difference between the rule of FR22(I)(a)1 in Vth pay commission and VIth pay commission as be seen. But in selection of Increment date no diffrence has come. Employee - A : when opts Promotion Date... Pre revised Basic pay as on 1.Jan.2006 4400(4000-100-6000) Increment Date Feb & Rs.100 Revised Pay in the pay band & Grade pay as on 1.Jan.2006 8190+2400 (PB-1 5200-20200) Annual increme
