For the purpose of gradation of employees in case of Group Insurance cum Savings Scheme, 1987 the above Group Division will not apply. Normally, after each ROPA, a separate G.O. is published. After ROPA 2009, the latest G.O. for this purpose is 185-J dated 07.01.2010. I shall try to post the said G.O. tomorrow.
