The Secretary(E), 
Railway Board, 
New Delhi
Dear Sir.,
Sub: Anomalies in the MACP Scheme — Stepping up of pay of Sr. Supervisors of Accounts and other departments — Reg.
Ref: Railway Board’s ID. Note No.EC-VI2009IACP12JPt. I dated 13.11.2012 addressed to Director(Estt. I). DoP&T
It is understood that Railway Board has already made a reference to DoP&T vide l.D. Note number referred to above, based on the agreement arrived in the MACPS Anomalies Committee Meeting held on 27.07.2012 on the issue of stepping up of pay of senior employees/supervisors at par with junior employees / supervised staff who are drawing higher grade pay due to financial upgradation under MACPS.

Orders from DoP&T on the above subject matter, however, are still awaited despite lapse of more than three months time. A number of queries are pouring in AIRF Office on this issue; as such it would be quite appropriate that a reference is made to DoP&T for issuing suitable orders without further loss of time.
It is further requested that other issues already agreed to, appearing on the agenda of MACP’s National Anomalies Committee, in the meeting held on 27.07.2012, may also be finalized at an early date.
An early action in the matter is solicited.
Yours faithfully, 
sd/- 
(Shiva Gopal Mishra) 
General Secretary

CHQ writes to CMD regarding grant of five advance increments to departmental JAOs who passed the JAO Part II examination held in January 2010

During our meeting with GM (Estt) on 31.7.2012 we were informed that the Committee constituted for considering the issue has recommended grant of advance increments to remove the anomaly and that the Management Committee will consider the recommendation.

We have been waiting patiently for more than three months for the Management Committee to take a view on the issue. But no decision appears to have been taken in this regard till date. The delay is causing a lot of resentment among the affected JAOs.'
