East Coast Railway,
Sub: Financial up-gradation by ignoring the promotion from the post of Assistant Station Master (ASM) to Station Master (SM) for own-request transferred Section Controllers.
Some doubts/clarification has been raised by Divisions regarding granting of financial up-gradation under MACPs to the category of Section Controllers who have been transferred on own request from other Railway/ Division/ Units with pay protection.
Illustration cited by the division is as under:
|Post||GP/PLPM||Date||Details of Apptt/ Promotion/ Transfer||Remarks|
|ASM||GP-2800/-, Level-5||13.11.1990||Appointment||Initial Appointment|
|SM||GP-4200, Level-6 (5000-8000)||15.07.1996||Promotion.||Promotion from ASM to SM not to be reckoned under MACPS w.e.f. 16.02.2018 vide RBE-26/2020|
|SCR||GP-4200/-. Level-6 (5500-9000)||01.07.2002||Promotion.||Appointment to the post of Section Controller from the post of Station Master is to be treated as lateral shift instead of promotion (RBE-96/2018).|
|Dy.CHC/ CHC||GP-4600/-, Level-7||26.07.2004||Promotion.||Promotion, to be reckoned CHC under MACPS|
|Section Controller||GP-4200/-, Level-6||14.09.2007||Transfer on own request on reversion.||Transfer by granting pay protection.|
|CHC||GP-4600/-, Level-7||27.09.2013||Re-promotion on New Unit.||Promotion, to be reckoned under MACPS|
In this situation, promotion to SM from ASM to be ignored because of amendment in Recruitment Rules in SM category, circulated vide RBE-26/2020. Again, in terms of RBE-96/2018 Appointment to the post of Section Controller (GP-4200/-) (RS-5500-9000 5th CPC) from the post of Station Master (GP-4200/-) (Rs-5000-8000 5′” CPC) is to be treated as lateral shift instead of promotion.
Therefore, the employee is eligible for 3rd financial up-gradation in GP-4800/-, Level-8 after completion of the 10 years from the re-promotion or 30 years from the date of direct entry grade whichever is earlier. if the concerned employee is still working after 16.02.2018.
