Pathakji, The Notfn has been posted by many. But the crux of the issue is from which date the enhanced ceiling will be effective? If u carefully read the Notfn, it mentions that it will take effect from the date the Govt decides (appoints or fixes) to implement the revised Act. Though Central Govt wage revision circular stated that wage increase etc wld be effective from 1.1.2006 (1.1.2007 for PSUs), in view of the wording in the Act passed by the Parliament, there is an element of doubt. I wish we get to have clarity in this regard.
