    Dear rajavelu
    your office is correct. After 1/9/08 ACP orders are not in vogue. only MACP is prevails. Thus 2nd MACP to your colleague is eligible but in the immediate next higher Gradepay only. On regular promotion only she can get 4200 GP

    My senior collegue when completed 24 years of service in All indiaradio canteen she got the 2nd ACP in the month of march 2009. The grade pay fixed was 4200/-. This order was issued before the New Macp order has come in to effect. The new order has come in may 2009 and notified to our office in sep 2009. Niow on march 31st2010 the office has issued an office order quoting that the grade pay fixed is wrong and would be with drawn and a new grade pay of 2800/- will come in to force. kindly advise whether the office is correct in its procedure. is it right that closed case can be reopened. pl guide in this regard.

    anybody who knows other sources of such scholarship may post in this column so that many can avail the opportunity. I think there are lot of channels for the meritorious students to receive scholarships. One such is through http://www.amul.com/vidhyabhushan award. Those who have any idea about other philanthropic sources may give details about it.
