Sub:-Board’s item No.3-Grant of financial upgradation under MACP Scheme in the promotional hierarchy-(instead of Grade Pay hierarchy) {item(s) to be discussed with Board (MS &FC)}.

The undersigned is directed to refer to NFIR’s letter No.IV/MACPS/09/Part 10, dated 10.04.2017 on the above subject and to state that Board’s reply dt. 17.04.2017 is based on the factual position relating to financial upgradiation being granted presently which has been ascertained from Northern Railway.

Meanwhile an another Railway i.e. Western Railway vide their letter dt. 06.03.2017 has also apprised that Accounts Clerk and Stenographers are getting GP Rs.4600/- and GP Rs.4800/- as 3rd MACPS respectively whereas under the ACP Scheme no further financial upgradation beyond GP of Rs. 4200/- for Accounts Clerks and Rs.4600 for Stenographer would be admissible. Thus, the Federation’s contention that ACP is more advantageous than MACP Scheme for certain categories of employees is contrary to the factual position.

Further, the submissions made by the Federation seems based on theoretical premise and the same is contrary to the situation factually obtaining on Zonal Railways. As such, the Federations’ allegation that Staff are put in disadvantageous position on account of financial upgradation allowed in pay structure hierarchy under MACPS is not found validate. As requested, a copy of supporting order in respect of Office Clerk/Accounts Clerk Cadre is furnished herewith.

In view of the above, Federation is requested to appreciate the factual position. DA: As above.

Yours faithfully,

for Secretary,
Railway Board
