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 According to this Office Memorandum O.M No. F.3 (18) R-2/99 dated 6th July 2001 has been withdrawn.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No. F.3 (18) R-2/99 dated 27th November 1999 and the subject noted above and to state that the said O.M may please be withdrawn with immediate effect.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increment on 1st December, as vide this O.M that Notification has been cancelled through which the use of option was withdrawn.
