Sub: Cases of promotion taking place in the pre-revised pay structure between 01/01/2006 and the date of notificatin of RS(RP)Rules, 2008 and the subsequent merger of the pre-revised pay scales of the promotional and the feeder posts in a common Grade-fixation of pay-Clarifications.

Ref: Railway Board's letter No. PC-VI/2015/IC/I dated 08/04/2016 (RBE No.33/2016) circulating Ministry of Finance's O.M. No. F-2-1/2015-E.III(A) dated 16/10/2015.

Attention is invited to Board's letter dated 08/04/2016 (RBE No. 33/2016) by which instructions contained in M/o Finance's OM dated 16/10/2015, the cut-off date for applicability of instructions contained has been mentioned as 29/08/2008 at one place and 29/09/2008 at another place of para 5 of the said OM. This seems to have caused confusion in some Railways/Units and some requests for clarifications have been made to Board's Office on the issue.

2. The date of notification of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 was 29/08/2008 and therefore as per M/o Finance OM dated 16/10/2015, the pay fixation benefit was available in cases of promotion occurring between 01/01/2006 till 29/08/2008 where feeder and promotional grades were subsequently merged in 6th CPC. The date 29/08/2008 mentioned in para 5 of M/o Finance's OM No. F-2-1/2015-E.III(A) dated 16/10/2015 is therefore evidently a typographical error which should logically be read as 29/08/2008. In any case, the cut-off date for applicability of provisions contained in letter dated 08/04/2016 (RBE No. 33/2016) in context of Railway employees is 04/09/2008 [i.e. date of notification of RS(RP) Rules, 2008] as has already been explicitly clarified by Ministry of Finance vide their OM No. 530744/E III-A/2017 dated 20/11/2017 to this office. It was based on this clarification that Board's letter No. PCVI/2016/IC/I (RBE No.196/2017) was issued on 29/12/2017.
