FRESH OPTION - FR22(I)(a)1 as per 6th Central Pay Commission


In Central Government employees, who have been Promoted / granted upgration under ACP scheme during the period from 1.1.2006 to 31.8.2008,already they submitted an option form according to the rule of FR22(I)(a)1 (as per V CPC) to selected either Promotion Date or Increment Date.

At the time of promotion every individuals selected the option their own convenience of the next increment date.

On implementation of VI CPC recommendations, the FR22(I)(a)1 rule has been modified and published from DOP&T a clarification on 13.10.2008. Owing to this modification, individuals who had opted earlier for Promotion Date only are at loss.

A fresh FR22(I)(a)1 option form has now been served to, who have been promoted the particular period between 1.1.06 to 31.8.08. Once again opt for either promotion date or increment date to fixation of their pay on promoion / ACP.

Opt for Increment Date especially to the affected individuals who had already opted for Promotion Date. On doing this, the above said individuals stands to gain, i.e.

Seniority discrepancy will be removed,

proper pay fixation will be executed,

stepping up problem will be solved.

The dublicate option form as follows…



1……………………………………… hereby elect for fixation of initial pa under the authority of Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievance and Pensions (Department of Personnel and Training) O.M. No. 1/2/87-Estt (Pay-I) dated 09-11-87, on promotion to the higher post of …………………………………….

(A) With effect from…………………………… on the basisi of FR22 (I) (a) 1 Corresponding to Art 156-A CSR Vol-I, straightaway without any further review on accrual of increment in the pay of the lower post.


(B) With effect from ………………………….. in the manner as provided under FR22 (a) (I) which may be refixed on the basis of the provision of FR22 (I) (a) 1 corresponding to Art 156-A CSR Vol-I on the date of accrual of next increment in the scale of pay on the lower post on ……………………….

Singnature :……………………….

Name :……………………………..

Designation : ………………………


The DOPT circular is not clear whether the option exercised under FR(I)a(1) between 1-1-06 and the date of 6CPC implementation would be allowed to be revised. That is, will the employee be allowed to revise his earlier option, made before 6CPC?

Dear Nandhi,

Thanks a lot for your post informing about revised option and the form. However, I could not find the related OM from DOPT or Ministry of Finance, as this would be required to convince my administration to allow me to revise option.

Dear Sir,

I have been given promotion from GP of Rs.4200/- to Rs.4600/- (Rs.6500-10500) to Rs.7450-11500). Due to the DOPT Circular on merging Rs.6500-10500/- scale with Rs.7450-11500/-, there was no promotional benefit given to me. I am in the opinion that I may atleast be given notional increment of 3% but nothing has been given to me. can anybody provide further details.

Sir, I got increment on 1-7-2006 under CCS(RP)Rules, 2008. My date of retirement was 30-6-2007. I had retired on 30-6-2007 without any increment. even though I had rendered the requisite period of qualifying services of 12 months from 1-7-2006 to 30-6-2007. FR 26(a) says increment is eligible on completion of 12 months serVice. Can anyone Clarify whether I am eligible to get increment on on 30-6-2007 and with that increment my pensionary benefits finalised?

I am an affected person due to issue of the revised option circular. But could not exercise revised option, since it came to my notice very late. Can I exercise the revised option now.... Please clarify or else is there any other way to get my pay hiked.... as my juniors who had opted revised option are getting higher pay than me.

An individual expired on 10/1/2014 and he was granted 2nd MACP wef 27/6/2010 ie after his death.Please therefore advise whether in absence of option of the individual his fixation could be approved from the next date of increment as per rule FR-22(I) (a) (2) which would be otherwise beneficiary to the individual.Also kindly quote Order on the subject matter
Thak you.
