This implies that in cases where there is no promotion/ between 01/01/2016 to 30/06/2016 option to opt from 07/2016 thereby forgoing the arrears from 01/01/2016 to 30/06/2016 in addition to opting from 01/01/2016.

Provision of para 15 of Min. of Finance Gazette notification dated 25.07.2016 may also be referred.
