Have completed 30 years regular service as on 12 Mar 2006. Refused promotion as PS during 2007. MACP came during 2008. Due to merger as per para 5 of MACP Rules promotions, ACP granted earlier to 2006 is to be ignored. As such left with one promotuon/ ACP to my credit and entitle for other two financial upgradations wef 01.09.2008 on completion and 20 years and 30 years respectively which are denied by the Department. Prior to superannuation I was promoted as PS during 2014 which was accepted by me.

The CAT, Hon’ble High Court of Madras and Supreme Court were issued favour orders for us including Old Pension benefits. Now at present, I am joined National Institute for Research in Reproductive Health, under permanent institute of ICMR located at Parel, Mumbai. But so far they haven’t interest doing my revised salary till date. But the same category in Malaria Research Centre, Ayapakkam, Chennai is getting more perks of central salary after approached the courts and success their case.
    So fare I am 29 years service in LDC there is no benefit given as per permanent council employee.
    Kindly do needful help for my positiion.

  14. Sir,
    I have join the service as Junior Engineer (Civil) on 01.09.2003 and scale 4500-125-7000. But that time as per CPWD norms my scale Rs 5000-150-8000, accordingly I was claimed for correction of my scale which was not corrected that time. As per 6th pay commission my department was not corrected my pay band and given the pay band PB 1 – 5200-20200 (G. P-2800) instead of 9300-34800 (GP-4200). But I got first MACP after rendered 10 years services 01.09.2013 in pre-revised pay scale of 9300-34800 (GP-4200).
    But Ministry of Health, GOI corrected the pay band 9300-34800 (GP-4200) as Junior Engineer (Civil) since w.e.f 01.01.2006. and present drawn the salary as per correct pay band i.e 9300-34800 (GP-4200)
    Sir my department now MACP proposed w.e.f 2006 to 2016, but my sevice joining date as Junior Engineer (CivIl) was 01.09.2003. So, Sir give me a exact MACP period which will correct 01.09.2003 to 01.09.2013 or 2006 to 2016 and what will be my present MACP Grade pay. It’s right or wrong
