2. Briefly, the facts of the case are as follows:

On 15.06.2009, MACP Scheme was notified requiring financial upgradation on completion of 10, 20 and 30 years of service or 10 years of service in same grade pay.
2.2 The applicants were granted third MACP with effect from 30.07.2014, 27.09.2013 and 16.12.2012 vide letters dated 28.07.2014, 03.03.2014 and 03.01.2013 respectively on completion of 30 years of service and on remaining in the same grade pay for ten years. Some persons junior to the applicants who had not been promoted, were granted the benefit of third MACP with Grade Pay of Rs.4600/-. The applicants continued to receive pay and allowances on the basis of pay fixed after grant of MACP. However, through communication dated 22.05.2017, it was informed by respondent no.1 to respondent no.2 that MACP was not admissible to the applicants as the promotion from the post of Assistant to OS cannot be ignored for this purpose.
