Sub : Non-implementation of MACP in favour of the undersigned.


With due respect I beg to state that some lines of the undersigned, as a fact, are drawing to your kind attention in relation to implementation of MACP on being discussed with the dealer of Stenographer category about non-implementation. Accordingly, my service particulars during my tenure are furnished below for information and guidance.



/ Promotion



Date of Independent Charge

Old Scale

6th PC






Rs.5200–        20200/-


Typist Gr.II



Rs. 950–1500/-


Jr. Steno





Sr. Steno




Rs.9,300– 34,800/,


         As such, I could not understand that why I will not be able to get the benefit of MACP, as I have awarded only one promotion as per 6th PC in Pay Band wise.


I pray to your kind honour for looking into this issue and arrange to implement the MACP for working with duration of more than 18 years in one scale, if admissible.


Awaiting for suitable reply in good justice.


Yours faithfully,

(Mrinal Kanti Das)

Sr. DOM/G/ER/Sealdah.

You got 3 promotions even though these 3 posts now carry same GP. As per MACP Orders promotions in merged cadres will be ignored, but these 3 posts are not merged. So you are not eligible for further MACP.

A trckman appntd w.e.f.16.3.84 after completion of 120 days. Thereafter he was apprvd (screening) w.e.f. 31.7.91. It has been mentioned in the circular that 50% of temp. status would be counted for grant of macp. Now the question is which period to be counted as temp.status:-
a) period prior from the d.o.apptt. (16.3.84)..or..
b) period between the d.o.apptt (16.3.84) to the d.o.apprvd (31.7.91).
