    In order to set right this genuine anomaly, the Government of Tamilnadu has issued an order vide GO No. 311 dated 31.12.2014. As per that order, a Government servant whose increment falls due on the day following superannuation, on completion of one full year of service which are countable for increment under Fundamental Rules may be sanctioned with one notional increment at the prescribed eligible rate, purely for the purpose of pensionery benefits and not for any other purpose.
    When Tamil Nadu Govt. could resolve the issue “granting increment” for those Govt Servants served total one year, at least notional increment for the purpose of pensionery benefits, why the Central Govt. (Model Employer) hesitating to implement the same. Hence, Govt. of India also shall sanction the same to their employees who worked for total one year, it should be resolved with out any further loss of time.
