The new MACPS effective from 01.09.2008 allows three financial upgradations counted from the direct entry on completion of 10, 20 and 30 years service. The scheme envisaged merely placement in the immediate nest higher grade pay in the hierarchy of the recommended revised pay grade and grade pays as given in Section I Part A of the first Schedule of CCS(RP) Rules,2008. Thus Artesian Grade-III in Pay Band of Rs. 5200-20200 (PB-1) on rendering 10 years continuous service in the grade pay of Rs. 1900 becomes eligible for fu\arts financial upgradation under MACPS to grade pay of Rs.2000 only in case he does not get promoted on regular basis to the Grade Pay of Rs.2400 as Artisan Grade-II.
