Certain doubts were received in this office regarding the admissibility of re-exercise of option and applicable cut off dates on Railways in respect of the instructions contained in Board's letter dated 08.04.2016. The issue has been examined in consultation with M/o Finance and following clarifications are issued:-
(i) Cut-off date:- It. is clarified that since the Railway Service (Revised Pay) Rules,2008 were notified on 04.092008, promotions taking place between 01.01.06 to 04.09.08 would be covered;
ii) Re-exercise of option to switch over to the pay structure (VIth CPC):-
On the issue of permission for re-exercise of option, it is clarified that since the issue of change in option is not covered in the OM No. F-2-1/2015-E.IIIA dated 16.101015 issued by the M/o Finance, as such the question of admissibility of fresh option does not arise and moreover.: since the benefit given in the OIVI dated 16.10.2015 was special dispensation, it may not be appropriate to consider any further dispensation.
