“The issue regarding grant of financial ungradation under MACPS to Jr. cashier by not reckoning their appointment / promotion from Sr.Shroff/ JAA/ Sr. Clerk to Jr. Cashier’s post has been under consideration. Since appointment / promotion from Sr. Shroff / JAA / Sr. Clerk to Jr. Cashier post involves promotion from one cadre to another cadre carrying same payscale / Grade Pay wihout benefit of pay fixation, it has now been decided in consultation with Finance Directorate and Establishment Directorate of Railway Board that regulating MACP benefits to such staff, the appointment from the post of Sr. Shroff / JAA / Sr. Clerk to the post of Jr. Cashier should not be constructed as promotion and, therfore, may not be reckoned for the purpose of grant of financial upgradation under MACPS”

This issues with the concurrence of the Finance Directorate of the Ministry of Railways.

Whether MACP scheme entitles financial upgradation of pay to the next grade pay or to the grade pay of the next promotional post as envisaged under the ACP scheme

Hindi version is enclosed.
