Subject: Benchmark for financial upgradation under MACP – clarification regarding

Clarification was sought from DoP&T on the issue of benchmark criteria for grant of financial upgradation under MACP. Now, the requisite clarification has been furnished by DoP&T vide their Comm. No.1313743/CR/18 dated 22.06.2018, contents of which are reproduced below for information and compliance:

“With regard to the query of M/o Defence on the issue of bench mark for grant of MACP, it may be stated that DoP&T has issued OM No. 35034/3/2015-Estt.(D) dated 28.09.2016 enhancing benchmark from ‘Good’ to ‘Very Good’ for all the posts for grant of financial upgradation under the MACPs as per the recommendations of 7th CPC. The above said OM was given effect from 25.07.2016 i.e. the date of acceptance of 7th CPC recommendations. Therefore, in cases where MACP falls due on or after 25.07.2016, the revised benchmark of Very Good’ is to be followed. In other words, the overall grading of the APARs reckonable for grant of MACP should be atleast ‘Very Good’.

Instructions prescribing modalities of implementation of 7th CPC recommendations for enhancing the benchmark from ‘Good’ to ‘Very Good’ in respect of promotion, is yet to be issued. The matter is under consideration.”

Subject: Enhancement of benchmark from “Good” to “Very Good” for grant of financial upgradation under MACP Scheme.

Sir/Madam,

Attention is invited to Department of Personnel and Training’s O.M No. 35034/3/2015-Estt.(D) dated 28.09.2016 whereby the benchmark for grant of financial upgradation under MACP has been enhanced to “Very Good” with effect from 25.04.2016.

2. In this regard, various references are being received regarding the applicability of O.M dated 28.09.2016 for determining the eligibility for grant of financial upgradation under MACP Scheme by the Departmental Screening Committee.

3. The matter was taken up with the Ministry and it has been clarified that the aforesaid O.M dated 28.09.2016 is applicable with effect from 25.07.2016 i.e the date of issue of Government Resolution by the Department of Expenditure. Therefore, in cases where MACP falls due on or after 25.07.2016, the revised benchmark of “Very Good” is to be followed. In other words, the overall grading of the APARs reckonable for grant of MACP should be at least “Very Good”.

Hence, the principle adopted by DPCs for arriving at “Overall grading” (“Very Good” in case of MACP) may be adopted by the DSC also.

5. It is, therefore, requested that grant of financial upgradation under MACP Scheme may be processed in light of the above clarification.

6. Receipt of this circular may please be acknowledged.

Dated: 25/06/2018

The Secretary,

North Block,
New Delhi-110001

Dear Sir,

Sub: Rectification of MACPS Anomalies – Stepping up of pay of Senior incumbents at par with Juniors – Case of Railway Accounts Department-reg.

The above subject has been taken up by the National Federation of Indian Railwaymen (NFIR), a recognized Federation of Railway employees, in the Permanent Negotiating Machinery (PNM) fora with the Railway Ministry. In the last meeting held between the Railway Board Members and the Federation on 17/05/2016, following agreement was recorded :-

It was explained to the Federation that the 7th CPC have addressed this issue in one of their recommendations. Therefore, we may await for the final outcome on the 7th CPC recommendations. If their recommendation is accepted by the Government, past cases of similar nature may be examined accordingly. The General Secretary/NFIR requested to see that injustice done to the Senior qualified staff is removed duly granting them the benefit of GP 5400/-.

Federation has since learnt that case file bearing No. PCV/2016/MACPS1(Pt1) dealing with the above subject has been sent by the Railway Ministry to the DoP&T to obtain NOC and has been pending since long period. The delay in granting NOC is causing frustration and resentment among the staff of Accounts Department on the Railways.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Secretary/DoP&T to kindly see that clearance from DoP&T to implement the recommendation of 7th Central Pay Commission is granted to the Railway Ministry soon.

Federation may please be kept advised of the action taken in the matter.

Yours faithfully

MACP to teaching staff of KVs

MACP to teaching staff of KVs

One of the conditions for grant of Modified Assured Career Progression (MACP) scheme is that the earlier Assured Career Progression (ACP) scheme should have been implemented / adopted by the autonomous / statutory body. Since Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) had themselves chosen not to opt the earlier ACP scheme for their teaching staff, the question of grant of MACP to teaching staff does not arise.

 

Senior Scale will be granted to the teaching staff of KVS after completion of 12 years service in the respective cadre and Selection Scale will be granted after completion of 12 years service in the senior scale. However, the number of posts in the selection scale for the teaching staff will be restricted to 20% of the number of posts in the senior scale of the respective cadre.

The Senior Scale and Selection Scale will be given after screening regarding their satisfactory performance by an appropriate Departmental Promotion Committee.

Selection scale will be granted to Primary School Teachers (PRTs) and Trained Graduate Teachers (TGTs) subject to their attainment of higher qualification laid down for TGTs and Post Graduate Teachers (PGTs) respectively. However, this condition has been waived off for the miscellaneous categories of teachers of KVS.

 

KVS has informed that all the teachers are getting their Senior Scale in time, though some teachers may not eventually get the Selection Scale due to non-fulfilment of the prescribed criteria for the same or their retirements preceding the date of eligibility.

 

Having regard to the prescribed criteria for grant of selection scale, the details of eligible teachers during the current year, post-wise, is as under:-

 

Name of the Post For grant of Senior Scale For grant of Selection Scale
PGTs 161 372
TGTs 120 573
PRTs 81 735
Head Master 12 0
Misc. Categories of teachers 12 325

 

KVS has informed that representations had been received from recognized staff associations for waiving off the condition of 20% for grant of Selection Scale to teachers and these representations have been considered and disposed off from time to time. No fresh proposal is under examination in this regard.

 

This information was given by the Minister of State for Human Resource Development Shri Upendra Kushwaha in a written reply to a question in Lok Sabha on 15.3.2018.

Application of Very Good bench mark for grant of Financial upgradation under MACPS

Application of “Very Good” bench mark for grant of Financial upgradation under MACPS

Ref: Confdn/Genl/2016-19

Dated – 14.03.2018

To

The Secretary
Department of Personnel & Training
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pension
North Block, New Delhi – 110001

Sir,

Sub:-  Application of “Very Good” bench mark for grant of Financial upgradation under MACPS.

DOP&T vide OM No. 35034/3/2015-Estt (D) dated 28.09.2016 had clarified that with effect from 25.07.2016, for grant of financial upgradation under MACPS, the prescribed bench mark would be “Very Good” for all posts. It is also clarified that there is no question of allowing second opportunity of representation against APAR as these are already disclosed to the employees in APAR process.

Notwithstanding our demand for withdrawal of “Very Good” bench marking condition for MACPS, it is submitted as follows:

Since the earlier “Good” bench mark for MACPS was applicable upto 25.07.2016, the employee having “Good” grading in their APARs for the previous years before 25.07.2016 may not have had a reason to represent gradings given, as they met the then prescribed criteria of bench marking for MACPS. Now since the benchmark for MACPS has been raised to “Very Good”, there is justification to allow the employees having “Good” or below grading for a period of five years APAR grading immediately preceding the cut-off date ibid an opportunity to represent against the same.

Considering the above aspect, it is requested that employees who had been awarded “Good” or below grading in their previous five years APARs may be given an opportunity, as one time measure, to represent against the same.

In fact, Railway Board, Ministry of Railways had already granted such an opportunity to its employees as a one-time measure vide Railway Board letter No. E(NG)/1-2018/CR/2 dated 27.02.2018.

Awaiting favourable response.

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,

Dear Sir,
Sub: Providing opportunity for submitting representation to the employees who have been awarded below “Very Good” Grading in their last three years’ APARs (for the purpose of MACPS-reg.

Ref: (i) NFIR’s letterNo.IV/MACPS/09/Part 10 dated 19/01/2017.
(ii) Railway Board’s letter No.E(NG)I-2018/CR/2 dated 27/02/2018.

Kind attention is invited to NFIR’S letter No. IV/MACPS /09/Part 10 dated 19/01/2017, responding to which Railway Board have issued instructions vide letter dated,27/02/2015 giving a chance as a onetime measure to represent against the ‘Good’ or below gradings recorded in the APARs of staff pertaining to the years 2014-15 , 2015-16 & 2016-17 .

While appreciating the decision of the Board for granting an opportunity to the staffto submit representations against the awarded gradings of ‘Good’ or below within 30 days from the date of Board’s communication, NFIR desires to convey that in such a large network of Indian Railways, the Board’s communication may not reach on time to the staff working at remote places as the publicity of the administration is also not adequate. Many staff may also
not be aware of the gradings already awarded to them by the controlling authorities.

NFIR, therefore, urges upon the Railway Board to kindly reconsider and grant 90 days time from the date of Board’s instructions i.e.27/2/2018, to facilitate staff to prefer appelas, wherever needed. It would also be necessary to advise General Managers of Zonal Railways to arrange to give copy of the gradings awarded to the concemed employees at the earliest. A copy of modified instructions may be endorsed to the Federation.

Yours faithfully

Grant of financial up gradation under MACPS to SSE-Drawing (formerly Diploma Holder Tracers) appointed against DR quota vacancies as Assistant Draftsman

No. IV/MACPS/09/Pt.II

Dated: 29/01/2018

The Secretary (E)
Railway Board
New Delhi

Dear Sir

Sub: Grant of financial up gradation under MACPS to SSE-Drawing (formerly Diploma Holder Tracers) appointed against DR quota vacancies as Assistant Draftsman-reg.

Ref:

(i) NFIR’s PNM item No.15/52015
(ii) NFIR’s letter No.IV/MACPS/09/Pt.10 dated 7/11/2016.
(iii) Reply receive vide Board’s letter No.PC-V/2015/PNM/NFIR/2 dated 30/05/2017 addressed to GS/NFIR
(iv) NFIR’s letter No.IV/MACPS/09/Pt. 10 dated 19/06/2017.
(v) PCPO/S.C.Rly’s letter No.SCR/P-HQ/510/EE/GM.PNM/SCRES dated 21/11/2017 addressed to Railway Board.

Through the action taken statement provided to the NFIR during the PNM meeting held with the Railway Board on 13/14.11.2017, the Railway Board desired to have copies of NFIR’s letters dated 07/11/2016 & 12/04/2017 for further examination of the matter. Accordingly, the NFIR sends herewith copies of its letters dated 7/11/2016 & 12/04/2017 (with enclosures).

Federation re-iterates that pursuant to the demand raised by our affiliate the SCRF Sangh in the GM/PNM meeting, the PCPO, SCRly vide letter dated 21/11/2017 has sent another letter to the Board seeking clarification. A copy of PCPO/S.C.Rly letter dated 21/11/2017 is also enclosed for ready reference.

NFIR once again reiterates following points and facts for taking decision to concede Federation’s demand on S.C.Railay’s cases.

NFIR once again reiterates following points and facts for taking decision to concede Federation’s demand on S.C.Railway’s cases.

The panel of Diploma Holder Tracers to the post Asst. Draftsman against 50% DR qutoa was formed and implemented on 20th Jan, 1984. Para 5.3 of Railway Board’s letter No.PC III/84/UPG/19 dated 25/06/1985 is not applicable to the candidates as they were the empanelled Asst.Draftsman in the year 1984 itself (against DR quota). This connection of the Federation can be verified from the letter dated 21/11/2017 sent by the South Central Railway to Railway Board.

The group of ten employees selected against DR quota were placed above in the seniority list to those promoted against restructured posts pursuant to Board’s destructing decision.

Federation therefore contents that the SSE/Drawing (Former Diploma Holder Tracers) appointed as Asst Draftsman against DR quota vacancies as per Board’s orders have been wrongly denied the benefit of 3rd MACP in GP 4800/-.

NFIR therefore urges upon the Railway Board to review the decision and issue instructions to the Zones etc., for allowing MACP benefit (3rd MACP in GP 4800) to the Diploma Holder Tracers appointed as Asst Draftsman aganist 50% DR qutoa vacancies, duly treating their entry as “appointment”.  A copy of the instructions issued may be endrosed to the Federation.

DA/As above

Dear Sir,
Sub: Item No. 2,10 and 48 of the Joint Committee of MACP – Agenda items of the Standing Committee:

 

Kindly refer to the above. All the three items, which were discussed together pertains to the date of effect of the MACP Scheme which was introduced by the Government on the basis of the recommendations of the 6th Central Pay Commission. The Staff Side demand to give effect to the revised promotional scheme from the date of the effect, the Report of the Commission itself i.e on 1.1.2006 was unfortunately not accepted by the official side and was not allowed to reach its logical conclusion i.e. either by an agreement or disagreement.

 

We now send herewith copy of the judgement of the Hon’ble Supreme Court in the matter vide W.P 3744 of 2016 dated 08/12/2017.

 

The Hon’ble apex court has categorically stated that the Govt’s decision to make the scheme effective prospectively was wrong and the scheme has to be implemented with effective from 1.1.2006. We request that the Govt. may issue necessary orders making the MACP Scheme Effective from 1.1.2006 instead of 1.9.2008. While issuing such an order it may also be clarified that the employees who were granted the benefit of ACP between 1.1.2006 to 31.08.2008 are not adversely affected and no recovery is ordered I from them in this connection.

 

Thanking you

Yours faithfully,

HON’BLE MR. JUSTICE S. RAVINDRA BHAT
HON’BLE MR. JUSTICE S.P.GARG

S. RAVINDRA BHAT, J.
1. Complaining of unjustified denial of third financial upgradation under the Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (hereafter called “MACPS”, for convenience), the writ petitioners approach this Court under Article 226 of the Constitution for appropriate directions.

2. Both the petitioners joined the establishment of the High Court initially in the cadre of Upper Division Clerk [UDC] (the first petitioner on 05.09.1998 and the second petitioner on 22.10.1984) from which they were promoted to the cadre of UDC (again on 05.09.1998 and 13.05.1999 respectively) and finally to the cadre of Reader (first petitioner on 09.10.2007 and second petitioner on 18.07.2008). The action impugned is the denial of their claim for a third financial upgradation. The petitioners challenge an order of the Screening Committee of the High Court which rejected their claim for third financial upgradation. In terms of the MACPS, an employee is entitled to assured career progression at 10 years’ intervals – thus, the first financial up-gradation is after 10 years of service; the second after 20 years of service and the third, on completion of 30 years of service.

3. The MACPS had its precursor in Assured Career Progression Scheme (ACP), formulated by the Central Government and brought into force with effect from 09.08.1999. The ACP guaranteed career progression after completion of 12 years of service. The precondition for the applicability of ACP and MACPS is that the concerned officer or employee should not have been promoted. As corollary, in the event of promotion, the concerned career progression benefit at the appropriate stage was to be denied. For instance, if an individual is promoted before the completion of 10 years, she or he cannot avail the ACP/MACPS benefit upon completion of 10 years and would instead have to wait for the completion of 20 years for the second upgradation, provided she/he is not promoted a second time in the career. Initially, upon the publication of the ACP, several queries were urged and doubts sought to be allowed, through an Office Memorandum containing clarifications to Frequently Asked Questions. The first of these – applicable to the ACP was published on 01.02.2000. The second was made applicable after the MACPS was brought into force, i.e. 01.09.2008 (through the OM dated 19.05.2009).

Important Supreme court Judgement – MACP should be given effect from 01.01.2016

Important Supreme court Judgement – MACP should be given effect from 01.01.2016

REPORTABLE

IN THE SUPREME COURT OF INDIA
CIVIL APPELLATE JURISDICTION
CIVIL APPEAL DIARY NO.3744 OF 2016

Union of India and Ors. – Appellant(s)
Vs.
Balbir Singh Turn & Anr. – Respondent(s)

Deepak Gupta, J.

1. Applications for condonation of delay in filing and refiling the appeals are allowed.

2. This bunch of appeals is being disposed of by a common judgment since similar questions of law are involved.

3. The 6th Central Pay Commission was set up by the Government of India to make recommendations in matters relating to emoluments, allowances and conditions of service amongst other things. The Pay Commission also made recommendation with regard to armed forces personnel. On 30th August,2008, the Central Government resolved by a resolution of that date to accept the recommendation of the 6th Central Pay Commission (CPC for short) with regard to the personnel Below officer Rank (PBOR) subject to certain modifications clause (i) of the Resolution reads as follows:

“(i) Implementation of the revised pay structure of pay bands and grade pay, as well as pension, with effect from 01.01.2006 and revised rates of allowances (except Dearness Allowance/Relief) with effect from 01.09.2008″.

clause 9 of the Resolution reads as follows:-

“(ix) Grant of 3 ACP up-gradation after 8,16 and 24 years of service of PBORs;”

4. Under the recommendations made by the 5th CPC there was a provision for Assured Career Progression (ACP). Vide this scheme, if an employee was not promoted he was entitled to get the next higher scale of pay after completion of 12/24 years of service. The 6th CPC recommended the grant of benefit of ACP after 10 and 20 years of service. The Union of India, however decided to grant 3 ACP upgradations, after 8, 16 and 24 years of service to PBORs, as per Clause (ix) extracted above. However, it would be pertinent to mention that the 6th CPC did away with the concept of pay scales and reduced the large number of pay scales into 4 pay bands and within the pay bands there was a separate grade pay attached to a post.

5. For the purpose of this judgment we are dealing with the facts of civil appeal diary No.3744 of 2016. It would be pertinent to mention that all the petitioners before the Armed Forces Tribunal (AFT for short) who are respondents before us are persons below officer rank. The respondents in this case retired after 01.01.2006 but prior to 31.08.2008. They claim that the benefit of the Modified Assured Career progression (MACP for short) was denied to them on the ground that the MACP was made applicable only with effect from 01.09.2008. The respondents approached the AFT praying that they are entitled to the benefit of MACP w.e.f 01.01.2006, i.e., the date from which the recommendation of the 6th CPC with regard to pay and benefits were made applicable. The stand of the Union of India was that the MACP was applicable only w.e.f. 01.09.2008 and, therefore, the respondents who had retired prior to the said date were not entitled to the benefit of the MACP. The AFT vide the impugned order dated 21.05.2014 held that the benefit of ACP granted to an employee is part of the pay structure which not only affects his pay but also his pension and, therefore, held that the ACP is not an allowance but a part of pay and, therefore, in terms of Clause (i) of the Government Resolution the MACP was payable w.e.f. 01.01.2006.

6. The question that arises for decision is whether the benefit of MACP is applicable from 01.01.2006 or from 01.09.2008.

7. The answer to this question will lie in the interpretation given to the Government Resolution, relevant portion of which has been quoted here in above. A bare perusal of Clause(i) of the Resolution clearly indicates that the Central Government decided to implement the revised pay structure of pay bands and grade pay, as well as pension with effect from 01.01.2006. The second part of the Clause lays down that all allowances except the Dearness Allowance/relief will be effective from 01.09.2008. The AFT held, and in our opinion rightly so, that the benefit of MACP is part of the pay structure and will affect the grade pay of the employees and, therefore, it cannot be said that it is a part of allowances. The benefit of MACP if given to the respondents would affect their pension also.

8. We may also point out that along with this Resolution there is Annexure-I. Part-A of Annexure-I deals with the pay structure, grade pay, pay bands etc., and Item 10 reads as follows :

10 Assured Career Progression Scheme for PBORs. The Commission recommends that the time bound promotion scheme in case of PBORs shall allow two financial upgradations on completion of 10 and 20 years of service as at present. The financial upgradations under the scheme shall allow benefit of pay fixation equal to one increment along with the higher grade pay. As regards the other suggestions relating to residency period for promotion of PBORs Ministry of Defence may set up an Inter-Services Committee to consider the matter after the revised scheme of running bands is implemented (Para 2.3.34) Three ACP upgradation after 8, 16 and 24 years of service has been approved. The upgradation will take place only in the hierarchy of Grade Pays, which need not necessarily be the hierarchy in that particular cadre.

Part-B of Annexure-I deals with allowances, concessions & benefits and Conditions of Service of Defence Forces Personnel. It is apparent that the Government itself by placing MACP in Part-A of Annexure-I was considering it to be the part of the pay structure.

9. The MACP Scheme was initially notified vide Special Army Instructions dated 11.10.2008. The Scheme was called the Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme for Personnel Below Officer Rank in the Indian Army. After the Resolution was passed by the Central Government on 30.08.2008 Special Army Instructions were issued on 11.10.2008 dealing with revision of pay structure. As far as ACP is concerned Para 15 of the said letter reads as follows:

“15. Assured Career Progression. In pursuance with the Government Resolution of Assured Career Progression (ACP), a directly recruited PBOR as a Sepoy, Havildar or JCO will be entitled to minimum three financial upgradations after 8, 16 and 24 years of service. At the time of each financial upgradation under ACP, the PBOR would get an additional increment and next higher grade pay in hierarchy.

Thereafter, another letter was issued by the Adjutant General Branch on 03.08.2009. Relevant portion of which reads as follows:-

“…….The new ACP (3 ACP at 8, 16 and 24 years of service) should be applicable w.e.f. 1 Jan 2006, and the old provns (operative w.e.f. the Vth Pay Commission) would be applicable till 31 Dec. 05. Regular service for the purpose of ACP shall commence from the date of joining of a post in direct entry grade.

Finally, on 30.05.2011 another letter was issued by the Ministry of Defence, relevant portion of which reads as follows:-

“5. The Scheme would be operational w.e.f. 1st Sep. 2008. In other words, financial up-gradations as per the provisions of the, earlier ACP scheme (of August 2003) would be granted till 31.08.2008.”

Therefore, even as per the understanding of the Army and other authorities up till the issuance of the letter dated 30.05.2011 the benefit of MACP was available from 01.01.2006.

10. As already held by us above, there can be no dispute that grant of ACP is part of the pay structure. It affects the pay of the employee and he gets a higher grade pay even though it may be in the same pay band. It has been strenuously urged by Col. R. Balasubramanian, learned counsel for the UOI that the Government took the decision to make the Scheme applicable from 01.09.2008 because many employees would have lost out in case the MACP was made applicable from 01.01.2006 and they would have had to refund the excess amount, if any, paid to them. His argument is that under the old Scheme if somebody got the benefit of the ACP he was put in the higher scale of pay. After merger of pay scales into pay bands an employee is only entitled to higher grade pay which may be lower than the next pay band. Therefore, there may be many employees who may suffer.

11. We are only concerned with the interpretation of the Resolution of the Government which clearly states that the recommendations of 6th CPC as modified and accepted by the Central Government in so far as they relate to pay structure, pay scales, grade pay etc. will apply from 01.01.2006. There may be some gainers and some losers but the intention of the Government was clear that this Scheme which is part of the pay structure would apply from 01.01.2006. We may also point out that the Resolution dated 30.08.2008 whereby the recommendation of the Pay Commission has been accepted with modifications and recommendations with regard to pay structure, pay scales, grade pay etc. have been made applicable from 01.01.2006. This is a decision of the Cabinet.

This decision could not have been modified by issuing executive instruction. The letter dated 30.05.2011 flies in the face of the Cabinet decision reflected in the Resolution dated 30.08.2008. Thus, administrative instruction dated 30.05.2011 is totally ultra vires the Resolution of the Government.

12. Col. R. Balasubramanian, learned counsel for the UOI relied upon the following three judgments viz. P.K. Gopinathan Nair & Ors. v. Union of India and Ors. 1 , passed by the High Court of Kerala on 22.03.2017, Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board v. Shashi Malik & Ors.2, passed by the High Court of Delhi on 01.09.2016, K.K. Anandan & Ors. v. The Principal Accountant General Kerala (Audit) & Ors3 passed by the Central Administrative Tribunal, Ernakulam Bench, Kerala on 08.02.2013. In our view, none of these judgments is applicable because the issue whether the MACP is part of the pay structure or allowances were not considered in any of these cases.

13. In this view of the matter we find no merit in the appeals, which are accordingly disposed of. All pending applications are also disposed of.

Subject: Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS) for the Central Government Civilian Employees – Implementation of the 7th CPC Recommendation Clarification regarding revised benchmark of “Very Good” of APAR grading.

Sir,

DoP&t vide OM No.35034/3/2015-Estt(D) dated 28.09.2016 had clarified that with effect from 25.07.2016. For grant of financial upgradation under the MACPS, the prescribed benchmark would be “Very Good” for all the posts.

2. The Board has been receiving a number of references from various field formations of CBEC, Associations and individuals on the subject mentioned above, seeking clarification whether the revised benchmark of “Very Good” (w.e.f 25.07.2016) may be applied to ACRs/APARs of 2015-16 and period prior to that, and whether the officers should be given opportunity to represent against the “Good” grading of past ACRs/APARs.

3. The matter has been examined in consultation with DoP&T .DoP&T has opined that there is no question of allowing second opportunity of representation against the APAR which are post 2009 as these are already disclosed to the employees in APAR process. DoP&T vide OM dated 28.09.2016 has implemented the recommendations of 7th CPC. accepted by the Government for enhancing the benchmark for grant of MACP to ‘Very Good’. These instructions are applicable w.e.f 25.07.2016, the date of issue of Government Resolution by D/o Expenditure. Therefore, in cases where the MACP falls due on or after 25.07.2016, the revised benchmark of ‘Very Good’ is to be followed. In other words, the overall grading of the APARs reckonable for grant of MACP should be atleast ‘Very Good’.

Yours faithfully.
