His case should be consider under illstration -II i.e. if any one promoted after 5 years the second MACP will applicable (5+10 yrs)=15 years and third MACP is applicable on 5+10+10=25 years.. In the above case he should be given benefits of MACP after completion 8+10yrs=18 years i.e. in 1998 on the promotional harichy and on arrising of vacancies of Inspector in Aapril 2002 he should be promoted without providing any further benefits as it has already fixed in the promotional pay band harichy.
