(a) No Sir.

(b) In case an employee, promoted between 2nd January and 30th June (both inclusive), opts for pay fixation from the date of next increment i.e., 1st July, the first increment on the level to which he/she has been promoted will be on following 1st January.

As per Department of Expenditure’s O.M.
