Sir / Madam,

This refers to various  references/representations  regarding  admissibility  of the benefit of financial upgradation under Modified Assured Career Progression (MACP) Scheme to Inspector (Posts) I Assistant Superintendent of Posts  (ASP) consequent upon upgradation of pay scale of Inspector Posts cadre from Grade Pay Rs.4200/- to Rs.4600/- w.e.f. 01.01.2006 by ignoring the promotion to ASP cadre I 2nd financial upgradations under ACP Scheme earned I granted prior to 01.01.2006 in terms of para-5 of Annexure-I to MACP Scheme issued vide this Directorate OM No. 4-7/(MACPS)/2009-PCC dated 18.09.2009.

2. In this regard , it is informed that although vide this Directorate OM of even No. dated 10.02.2021, it was clarified that “promotion earned in the post carrying same grade pay in the promotional hierarchy as per Recruitment Rules shall be counted for the purpose of MACPS in terms of para -8 of Annexure -I to DoP&T OM dated 19.05.2009” yet the point of reference has again been  referred  to Department of Personnel & Training seeking clarification on the issue.
