In this regard, the factual position prevailing on Railways has been
ascertained from a Railway i.e. Northern Railway in respect of these
categories of employees and on a perusal of the same, it has been observed
as under:-

i. The employees directly recruited as Office Clerk (GP Rs.1900) are
getting Grade Pay of Rs.4600 as 3rd MACPS whereas under ACP Scheme no
further financial upgradation beyond GP of Rs.4200/- would be admissible.

ii. The employees directly recruited as Technician Gr.lll (GP Rs.1900) are
getting Grade Pay of Rs.4200 as 3rd MACPS whereas under ACP Scheme no
further financial upgradation beyond GP of Rs. 2800/- would be admissible.

iii. The employees directly recruited as Shroff category (GP Rs.1900) after
their promotion as Hd. Shroff in GP Rs.4200 have further been granted 3rd
MACPS in Grade Pay of Rs.4200 (as next promotional cadre post of ADC is
also in the same Grade Pay of Rs.4200/-) whereas under ACP Scheme there is
no provision for grant of 3rd financial upgradation.

iv. The employees directly recruited as Stenographer (GP Rs.2400) are
getting Grade Pay of Rs.4800/- as 3rd MACPS whereas under ACP Scheme no
further financial upgradation beyond GP of Rs.4600/- would be admissible.

v. The employees directly recruited as Accounts Clerk (GP Rs.1900) are
