Federal Government has allowed the Time Scale Promotion Policy for the Federal Government employees of BPS-01 to BPS-16. But there are some technical issues. These include the move up of employees, upgradation, and some others that the employees are already availing. Now the employees of such type have to give the option of whether they will adopt their existing time scale policy or a new one.  Various departments have already asked the employees to provide the option certificates. Government has to make the procedure simple as many employees are unaware of the benefits of new and old TSP.
