If option 1 implement, then what about those employees/pensioners who have not have not yet granted any annual increments on account of penality of withholding annual increments (NR/Non recurring effect) & finally opted for voluntary retirement as per provisions granted by ministries/departments. In this case how deal these issues & how fixing the revised 7th CPC pay/pension on the basis of option No.1, (all types penalties which have non recurring effect may grant due annual increments after the expiry of each penality orders & arrears to be sanction to all serving employees/pensioners/family pensioners ) & for doing this all manually prepared service registers of all serving employees/pensioners/family pensioners from the date of joining to service & up to retirement revision is required mandatory.
