Is attendance compulsory for Central Government employees on the implementation day (01.01.2016) of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations?

Central Government employees are wondering if there will be any consequences of taking leave on January 1, 2016, the date of implementation of the 7th Pay Commission report.
The recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission regarding the salaries and perks for the Central Government employees will come into effect from January 1, 2016 onwards. Many are curious to find out the connection between the date of implementation of 7th CPC and reporting to work on the day.
Normally, the date of joining work, date of getting the promotion, date of receiving the increments, transfer date, and retirement dates are very important for a Central Government employee. In the average service period of a Central Government employee, he/she is likely to witness two or three Pay Commissions. Keeping this in mind, it would be better to not absent oneself on January 1, 2016.

“All Central Government employees are advised to report to work on January 1, 2016 (Friday).”
“This is especially so for those who are on long leave. It will help them avoid a lot of problems in future.”
“If 01.01.2016 is announced as a holiday, it will be better to report to work the next day.”
If the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission are going to be implemented from 01.01.2016 onwards, then the employees will have to come to work that day to accept these recommendations. If he/she is absent on the day, then the day they return to work will be treated as the day they had accepted the new recommendations.
If an employee not to report on the date of implementation of recommendations of new pay commission, this could delay the benefits of the 7th Pay Commission. This could also cause financial losses too due to pay revision as per the recommendations of new pay commission.
According to rules, in order to qualify for the annual increment, an employee has completed 6 months or more in the revised pay structure as per 6th CPC, as on 1st July. A delay of even a single day could deny you an increment, as per the rule.

Ministry of Railways - Achievements & Initiatives

Dear Rail user,
Our respected Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi Ji has a vision for this great nation and in this vision Indian Railways has an important place to be the "backbone of India's economic development". During my tenure I have tried to bring about a change and to usher in new practices and new work culture. All Budget Announcements have been broken up into actionable points and are being monitored on a regular basis. I am happy to inform that 103 Budget Announcements already stand implemented. In the past one year a number of milestones have been achieved. However, I am aware that the journey for transforming the Indian Railways will be long and winding. There are many more challenges to be overcome and expectations to be fulfilled. But I have been fortunate to always have your unstinting support and cooperation.
It is, therefore, important to communicate with you about the work being done in Indian Railways. Please Download Booklet containing the recent initiatives taken by the Railways. I look forward to your suggestions and I am confident that together we will make the Indian Railways much better.

With regards,
Yours sincerely,
(Suresh Prabhu)
