In CSSS, the stenographer Grade D is eligible for MACP after 10 years of regular service i.e. 2800/- grade pay. And he is eligible for 4200/- grade pay only after 5 years regular service. i.e. before his becoming eligible for 2800 GP he will become eligible for 4200/- gp. Is not this ridiculous?

In CSSS the Grade D Stenographer becomes eligible for MACP after 10 years of regular service (for getting 2800/- GP), whereas he becomes eligible for 4200/- GP simply after completing 5 years regular service (under NFSG). i.e. he becomes eligible for 4200 GP before he becomes eligble 2800 gp. Is this not rediculous. We must fight for NFSC for subordinate offices also. At the same time we must insist for restructuing of Stenographer Cadre.
