BEING ON DUTY ON 01.01.2016 ---- WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
We have received some queries and confusions if one remains under leave on 01.01.2016, whether it is going to affect the benefits adversely due to implementation of 7th CPC from that date.
As per recommendation of 7th CPC, fixation of revised pay will be done on 01.01.2016. As per present ruling position, one has to remain on duty on the date of fixation of pay. So, it is advisable to remain on duty on that date. If one remains absent or in regular leave on 01.01.2016 (or even if this date falls under a period of leave), he/she would incur loss in benefit during fixation.
