Sub: Financial upgradation to Section Controllers ignoring the promotion from the post of Station Master (GP Rs. 4200/- pre revised Rs. 5000-8000) to Section Controller (PB-2, G.P Rs.4200/-/ Pre revised Rs. 5500-9000). 
The issue regarding grant of financial upgradation to Section Controllers ignoring the movement from the post of Station Master to Section Controller has been consideration of Board for some time. It has been decided that appointment to the post of Section Controller (G.P Rs. 4200/-)/Rs. 5500-9000(5th CPC) from the post of Station Master (G.P Rs.4200/-)/ Rs. 5000-8000 (5th CPC) is to be treated as lateral shift instead of promotion and therefore, should not be reckoned for the purpose of MACPS. 

2. However, in cases where benefit of pay fixation under Rule 1313 {FR-22(I)(a)(i)} R-II, IREC Vol-II has already been extended on appointment as Section Controller (G.P Rs. 4200/-)/Rs.5500-9000(5th CPC) from the post of Station Master (G.P Rs.4200/-)/Rs.5500-9000 (5th CPC) treating the same as promotion (including under Court's directions) this should be reckoned for the purpose of MACPS so that double benefit of promotional pay fixation and MACPS is avoided. 

3. This issue with the concurrence of the Finance Directorate of the Ministry of Railways. 

4. Hindi Version will follow.
