  1. IN CPWD THE PROMOTIONAL STEPS OF MINISTERIAL STAFFS ARE LDC-UDC-HEAD CLERK-OS. RIDICULOUSLY 6TH. CPC IMPLEMENTED MACP FOR UDCS GP 2800 INSTEAD OF 4200. WHERE UDCS NEXT STEP OF PROMOTION LEVEL IS HEAD CLERK, AND THE GP OF HEAD CLERK IS 4200 NOT 2800. IT IS NOT CAREER PROGRESSION SCHEME OF GOVT. OF INDIA. IT IS A SCHEME OF DEVIDATION AMONGST THE CLERICAL CADRE.
    GOVT. MAY THINK ABOUT IT AND MODIFY THE ORDER IMMEDIATELY TO HELP THE UDCS OF CPWD.

  2. I was appointed as Trainee Artisan in may 1981. Posted as Tech-III in May 1982. Enjoyed channelized (seniority wise) promotion as Tech.-II in 1986. Herein after I got the next promotion in ACP (5th, PC) Tech.-I in 2006, after 20 years. Now I completed the service of 30 years. Please cleared me that, is there any irregularities in getting the promotion? Where I should be at present?

  3. I have appointed on November 1985 in R.E. as Jr. Telephone Operator my lien in Moradabad division. I got promotion in Moradabad division in February 1995 as Sr. Telephone Operator in 1200 grade. There is no gradeof Rs. 4500 in Telephone Operator cadre. It means I can get new pay scale of 9300-34800, but in MACP I got grade of 5200-20200. You are requested to do me a favour.
    Thanking you,

  5. Sir,

    In fact I was eligible for second finanial upgradation under old ACP scheme. Since I was haing multiple promotional channels, I was promoted to Gazetted Officer from Stenographer Gr.III. I was completd 20 yrs as on 9.8.1999 (the date on which old ACO was introduced). My case was also referred to DOPT and they haver confirmed that since I got only one promotion i.e. from Steno to APO(Gazetted Officer, I was eligible for second financial upgradation. However, official in Department ofg Atgomic Energy, have not acted upon the clarification given by DOPT stating that I was not having hardship and if I am given higher pay scale, my seniors will be frustrated.

    I have made a grievance petition to DOPT but they have also not acted upon. I am not able to understand what to dol

    Kindly advice me.
