Funding Source for FY 2019
It is evident in the attached photo below extracted from the Joint Resolution No. 1 (the law that authorised the salary increase of PNP and other MUPs), under sub-para VI. Funding Source, it is explicitly stated therein that the amount necessary to implement the salary increase under this law for  FY2018 will be sourced from Miscellaneous Personnel Benefits Fund, WHILE the funding requirements for the SUCCEEDING YEARS (FY 2019 and onwards) will be included and sourced from the annual General Appropriations Act (GAA).

The provision for Funding source as provided in the J.R. no. 1.

Salary Increase Delayed?
Connecting the pronouncement of Sec. Diokno and the provision for funding source under J.R. No. 1, it is now apparent that the Salary Increase for PNP, AFP and other MUPs will definitely be delayed. Sec. Diokno said that due to congress failure to pass the 2019 GAA, the delay may be up until March 2019. But don't fret, as he had mentioned, that salary increase will be applied retroactively, meaning it will start from January up until the month when the increase would ultimately take effect. It is up to the DBM or your agencies concerned on how they will implement the back pay or Salary Adjustment.

Reenacted Budget until March 2019
Congressman Andaya stated in an interview that the stop gap solution for this scenario (failure to pass the GAA into law) is to have a reenacted budget. This means that the approved budget based on GAA 2018 is adopted temporarily for FY 2019 to avoid stoppage of government functions. This further means that the salary of the PNP and other MUPs will remain the same until such time when the GAA 2019 is passed into law, which according to Sec. Diokno will be tentatively on March 2019.

tl:dr
The salary increase will be delayed, but will definitely be implemented by March (According to Sec. Diokno) with retroactive effect to start from January 2019.
It will take effect, albeit, a bit late.
