As per Railway Board’s letter under reference, while extending benefit of financial upgradation under MACP Scheme, the candidates selected through LDCE/GDCE on a post for which recruitment rules provide for Direct Recruitment, their promotion through above process on the said post are to be treated as Direct Recruitment for the purpose of granting benefit under the said scheme.
As per para 140(i) of the Indian Railway Establishment Manual, Volume-I(Revised Edition 1989), Intermediate Apprentices selected against 25% Intermediate Apprentice Quota(Talented Quota) do fulfill above criteria, as the said para clearly stipulates that 75% of the vacancies in the category of Jr. Engineer in Mechanical, Electrical, Engineering Departments and Draftsmen category of these departments will be filled by induction of Apprentice Mechanics, as such those selected against 25% Intermediate Apprentice Quota(Talented Quota) may also be considered to have been directly recruited on these posts. They should, therefore, be extended the benefit under MACP Scheme as per para(i) of Railway Board’s letter referred to above.
The Board are, therefore, requested to issue necessary clarification to all the Zonal Railways and Production Units so that the Jr. Engineers selected through LDCE against 25% Intermediate Apprentice Quota(Talented Quota) are granted financial upgradation under MACP Scheme, treating them as Directly Recruited to these posts.
