1.Please refer to Board’s letter of even number dated 04.12.2009 allowing 50% of Temporary status casual labour service on absorption in regular employment may be taken into account towards the minimum service of 10, 20 and 30 years for the grant of benefit under the MACP Scheme.
2. Further, on demand from both the federations that the entire service of the substitutes on their absorption in regular service may be reckoned for MACPS purposes, the matter has been carefully considered by the Board. It is found that unlike casual labour whose 50% of temporary status service counts for pensionary benefits, temporary status service in full of the substitutes counts for pensionary benefits. It has, therefore, been decided that the entire temporary status service of substitutes followed by regularisation without break may be taken into account towards the minimum service of 10, 20 and 30 years for the purpose of grant of benefit under the MACP Scheme.
3. This issues with the concurrence of the Finance Directorate of the Ministry of Railways.
