Ref: Railway Board’s letter no. PC-VI/2015/IC/1 dated 08.04.2016 (RBE No. 33/2016) & M/o Finance’s O.M. No. F-2-l/2015-E.III(A) dated 16.10.2015.

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 08.04.20l6. The issue has been examined in consultation with the 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 04.09.2008. promotions taking place between 01.0l.06 to 04.09.08 would be covered;

(ii) Re-exercise of option to switch over to the Revised pay structure (V1th 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-l/2015-EIIIA dated 16.l0.201 5 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 OM dated 16/10/2015 was special dispensation. It may not be appropriate to consider any further dispensation.
