- This federation letter of even no.dated 16.06.2022, 01.08.2022 & 21.12.2022.
With due regards, your kind attention is invited to the letters cited under reference 1 whereby instructions/clarifications were issued regarding Pay Fixation (including fixation of DNI) under FR 22(1)(a)(1) on regular promotion or financial up-gradation on or after 01.01.2016. And, employees were allowed to exercise/ re-exercise of option for pay fixation for past cases if they had not availed the same on the occasion of their regular promotion/ financial up-gradation.
Through the OM dated 15 April 2021, a special condonation, on one more occasion, was granted with a three month time-limit to all employees by relaxing the condition in exercising of option.
It is worth to mention here that during the same period (aftermath of 15 April 2021) the sudden outbreak of corona pandemic derailed the life of all. Establishments were being run at least strength. Everyone was struggling to save the lives of his dear ones.
In such a catastrophic situation’ employees could not avail the above relaxation. But, with restoration of normalization, many employees started to approach this federation for a further extension/ relaxation in rules for one more and last time.
As the situation was beyond their control and the OM dated 15 April 2021 could not be availed by the employees, you are again requested to condone the delay for one more time and give one more opportunity to all employees in this regard.
