Option for Re-Fixation of Pay- Office Memorandum Withdrawn

Government of the Pakistan Finance Division has issued O.M No . 3(18) R-2/99 dated 20th May 2014 in connection with Cancellation of Office Memorandum regarding Option for Re-Fixation of Pay.  According to this Office Memorandum O.M No. F.3 (18) R-2/99 dated 6th July 2001 has been withdrawn. What is this O.M? Detail is as under:

In the Office Memorandum that has been cancelled it is stated that the undersigned is directed to refer to this Division’s O.M No. F.3 (18) R-2/99 dated 27th November 1999 and the subject noted above and to state that the said O.M may please be withdrawn with immediate effect.

The Office Memorandum No. F.3 (18) R-2/99 dated 27th November 1999 says; the undersigned is directed to state that the terms of Finance Division’s O.M No. 3 (2) Gaz.Imp.I/75 dated the 14th October 1975, such civil servants who are promoted before reaching the maximum of their pay scales to a higher pay scale between 2nd June to 30th November of a year were allowed to opt to re-fixation of their pay in the higher pay scale concerned wef 1st of December of the year of their promotion with reference to their presumptive pay on that date in their pro-promotion scale.

While the said O.M dated 14-10-1975 did not cover the cases of selection grade (due to non-existence of Selection Grade Scheme at that time), the exercise of option for re-fixation in cases of selection grade and move over was barred vide this Division’s letter No. F.1(2) Imp/98-140/Imp/97 dated 30-04-1998; addressed to the Auditor General of Pakistan.

As Selection Grade is treated at part with promotion for the purpose of fixation of pay, it is decided in partial modification of this Division’s letter dated 30-04-1998, that the concession of option for re-fixation of pay in the higher scale as contained in this Division’s letter dated 14-10-1975 shall be extended also and applicable to the cases of Selection Grade with effect from the date it was barred by Finance Division i.e 30-10-1998.

Conclusion: As far I undrstood from this Office Memorandum, the employees now can use the option to re-fix their pay after getting annual increment on 1st December, as vide this O.M that Notification has been cancelled through which the use of option was withdrawn.

    Madam , the posts of Computer Operators along with its incumbents in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa have been upgraded from BPS-12/13 to BPS-16 w.e.f 28-07-2016.Such employee, if upgraded w.e.f 28-07-2016, are not entitled to avail increment for 2016. My question is whether such employees can opt for fixation of their pay in BPS-16 w.e.f 01-12-2016 i.e after availing annual increment in their previous scale (BPS-12/13)?. Please also specify the rules under which such option can be exercised.

    Dear Madam,
    I was at the maximum of pay scale no 20 1-12-1996 through move over. Whereas, there was no move over and increment during the year 1997-2000. Later on I was promoted to grade 20 in December 2000 and at the time of fixation of pay no premature increment was given because I was already at the maximum of grade 20 and there was no move over in grade 21. In this way I was deprived of the premature increment. Is there any decision of the government regarding such cases.

    Dear Madam,
    I was at the maximum of pay scale no 20 on 1-12-1996 in move over. Whereas, there was no move over and no increment was given during the years 1998-2000. I was deprived of the increment although I was rendering my services during this period. Kindly inform if there was any decision made by the government about these employees.

  12. Muhammad Ilyas says:

    Dear Madam
    If a govt: servant is promoted from BPS-17 to BPS-18 after 1st June, he will get annual increment in BPS-17 or BPS-18?

    • Dear Muhammad Ilyas can use option to get the annual increment on 1st Dec and then fix his pay in the new school. This will be only for pay fixation purpose and he will join his duty as due and mentioned in the Notification.

      • Muhammad Ilyas says:

        Does it means that we can get the increment in either scale which will be beneficial for fixation?

        • Yes dear Muhammad Ilyas, u can see whether u get the benefit with option or without option. If you don't use the option then u ll not get the annual increment.

        AOA

        Please clarify this notification how it would be beneficent for employees

        • Dear Ayaz Shah, Finance Div issued Notification in 1998 to use the option of fixation of pay after availing Annual Increment in the previous scale on Selection Grade for those employees who got Selection Grade between 2nd June to 30th Nov. In 2001 this Notification was cancelled and now the Notification of the cancellation of 2001 Notification has been issued. It means the Notification of 1998 has again been restored.
