New Delhi, the 11th December, 1970
Subject:- Counting of periods towards increment.
The undersigned is directed to refer to this Ministry’s Office Memorandum of even No. dated 27th January, 1963 and to say that a doubt has been raised regarding the method to be adopted
in arriving at the date of increment, where the different spells and/or total of the periods not counting for increment exceeds 29 days. It is clarified in consultation with the Comptroller and Auditor General of India, that in such cases the periods as well as the total of periods not counting for increment should be converted in terms of months and days in accordance with the provisions of Audit Instruction below FR.9(18). The total period so converted into months and days shall be added to the date of normal increment, to arrive at the actual date of increment as provided in proviso to FR. 26(a).
Illustrations explaining the method of reckoning the date of increment under the amended rule are given in the annexure of this Memorandum.
Deputy Secretary to the Government of India.
