Sirs,
Sub:- Board’s item No.3-Grant of financial upgradation under MACP Scheme in the promotional hierarchy-(instead of Grade Pay hierarchy)- as per judgment of various courts. {item(s) to be discussed with Board (MS &FC)}

Ref:- NFIR’s letter No.IV/MACPS/09/Part 10, dated 20.02.2017.

The undersigned is directed to refer to item No.3 of the record note of discussions held on 12.10.2015 on MACPS anomalies whereby NFIR have stated that ACP Scheme is more advantageous than MACPS for certain categories of employees viz. office Clerks/Accounts Clerks, Commercial Clerks, Stenographers, Technician Gr.III and Shroff category.

In this regard, the factual position prevailing on Railways has been ascertained from a Railway i.e. Northern Railway in respect of these categories of employees and on a perusal of the same, it has been observed as under:-

The employees directly recruited as Office Clerk (GP Rs.1900) are getting Grade Pay of Rs. 4600 as 3rd MACPS whereas under ACP Scheme no further financial upgradation beyond GP of Rs. 4200/- would be admissible.

The employees directly recruited as Technician Gr.III (GP Rs.1900) are getting Grade Pay of Rs. 4200 as 3rd MACPS whereas under ACP Scheme no further financial upgradation beyond GP of Rs. 2800/- would be admissible.

The employees directly recruited as Shroff category (GP Rs.1900) after their promotion as Hd. Shroff in GP Rs.4200 have further been granted 3rd MACPS in Grade Pay of Rs. 4200 (as next promotional cadre post of ADC is also in the same Grade Pay of Rs.4200/-) whereas under ACP Scheme there is no provision for grant of 3rd financial upgradation.

The employees directly recruited as Stenographer (GP Rs.2400) are getting Grade Pay of Rs. 4800/- as 3rd MACPS whereas under ACP Scheme no further financial upgradation beyond GP of Rs. 4600/- would be admissible.

The employees directly recruited as Accounts Clerk (GP Rs.1900) are getting Grade Pay of Rs. 4600 as 3rd MACPS whereas under ACP Scheme no further financial upgradation beyond GP of Rs. 4200/- would be admissible.

From the above, it can be seen that MACP Scheme is more advantageous than the ACP Scheme for the aforesaid categories.

MACP and National Anomaly Committee Issues: Confederation

MACP and National Anomaly Committee Issues: Confederation

“VERY GOOD” BENCH MARK FOR MACP AND DENIAL OF PROMOTIONAL HEIRACHY

Eversince, the MACP scheme was introduced in 2008, confederation and the JCM staff side has been demanding promotional hierarchy instead of grade pay hierarchy. Govt, instead of considering this genuine demand, suddenly issued orders imposing “very good” bench mark condition for MACP. The JCM staffside was not even consulted. JCM staff side, secretary wrote a letter to cabinet secretary on 28-07-2016 as follows:

“The Govt. has accepted one of the adverse recommendations of 7th CPC without holding any consultation with the staff side. The recommendation of the 7th CPC regarding bench mark for performance appraisal for promotion and financial upgradation under MACPs, to be enhanced from “Good” to “very good”, has been accepted by the Govt. without considering the implication on the morale of the Central Government employees… We are of the firm opinion that Govt. should reconsider their decision on the above issues and we request you to kindly withdraw the same.”

Subsequently the case was discussed in the JCM standing committee meeting also on 25-10-2016, as an agenda item given by staff side. Inspite of all these, the Government is not ready to withdraw or modify the orders.

This shows the attitude of the BJP led NDA Govt. towards JCM staff side and Central Govt. employees.

NATIONAL ANOMALY COMMITTEE

The National Anomaly Committee was constituted on 09-09-2016. Two meetings are held to discuss the anomaly regarding calculation of Disability Pension for Defence force personnel. As per the definition of anomaly notified by the Government no genuine “anomaly” can be termed as “anomaly”. Hence the JCM staff side has demanded to modify the definition of anomaly, as defined in earlier National Anomaly Committees constituted by Govt. at the time of previous pay commissions. But till this day, Govt. has not conceded the request of the staff side.

Reckoning GP 4200/- PB-2 as entry grade pay for granting financial upgradation under MACPS to the Pharmacist category

NFIR

No. IV/MACPS/09/Part 10

Dated: 07/02/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi.

Dear Sir,

Sub: Reckoning GP 4200/- PB-2 as entry grade pay for granting financial upgradation under MACPS to the Pharmacist category – reg.

Ref: (i) NFIR’s letter No. IV/MACPS/09/Part 10 dated 30/08/2016 and
22/12/2016.

(ii) Railway Board’s reply vide No. PC-V/2011/M/NFIR dated
24/01/2017
Federation does not agree with the view taken by the Railway Board by misinterpretation of the contents of DoP&T’s OM dated 4th Feb 1992. In this connection, Federation once again cites below the facts which have been ignored by the Board while considering the demand:

  • It is true that vide para 2 of the said OM, while the DoP&T has laid down criteria for assessing the suitability of the incumbents of the posts due to revision of pay scales/upgradation, at the same time in sub-para 2 of the same OM, it has been clarified that  where the upgradation involves replacement scale without higher responsibilities or higher qualification but with higher eligibility of service, in such situation suitability may not be assessed.
  • It has been further clarified that those who fulfill the criteria of qualifying service, should be appointed to the upgraded post from the date on which they complete the qualifying service.
  • The condition stipulated in sub-para 2 of DoP&T’s OM dated 4th Feb 1992 has been fulfilled by the Pharmacists who though recruited in GP 2800 have been appointed to GP 4200 (6th CPC) on completion of 2 years service in GP 2800/- (PB-1).

The plea taken by the Railway Board that the said OM of DoP&T is applicable for assessing the suitability of the incumbents, is therefore, misconceived, illogical and unjustified. On the other hand, the case of Pharmacists for granting MACP benefit is required to be dealt applying the provisions contained in the DoP&T’s OM dated 4th Feb,1992.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway instructions to the Zones etc., allowing MACP endorsed to the Federation.

Yours faithfully,
(Dr. M.Raghavaiah)

Dear Sir,
Sub: Benefit of financial upgradation under MACP Scheme to the Pharmacist category-reckoning GP 4200/- (PB-2) as entry Grade Pay for granting financial upgradation under MACPS-reg.
Ref: NFIR’s letter No. IV/MACPS/09/Part 10 dated 30/08/2016 addressed to Rly., Bd.

Federation vide its letter No. IV/MACPS/09/Part 10 dated 30/08/2016 on the subject invited Board’s attention to the O.M. No. 22011/10/84-Estt. (D) dated 4th February 1992 circulated by DoP&T wherein criteria has been laid down vide Para 2.2 to treat the placement of employees on upgradation to higher replacement scale without higher responsibilities or higher qualification but with higher eligibility service as appointment. In the said communication the case of Pharmacist GP 2800/- (PB-1) to GP 4200/- (PB-2) has been cited which is fully covered under the said instructions of DoP&T. The Federation has accordingly requested the Railway Board to review the case afresh and issue suitable clarification treating the placement of Pharmacist to GP 4200/- as appointment. A period of more than three months has passed, unfortunately neither clarification has been issued nor progress on the action taken has been conveyed to the Federation. A copy of Federation’s communication dated 30/08/2016 is enclosed or ready reference.

NFIR, therefore, once again requests the Railway Board to kindly consider the points mentioned in Para 2.2 of the DoP&T O.M. dated 4th February 1992 and issue clarification early to the GMs of Zones etc., so that the staff could avail the benefit of MACPS as a result of reckoning entry into the GP 4200/- as appointment. A copy of the instructions issued may be endorsed to the Federation.

No. IV/MACPS/09/Pt.10.

30.08.2016

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi.

Dear Sir,
Sub: Benefit of financial up-gradation under MACPS to the Pharmacist category – Reckoning GP Rs.4200/-  PB-2 as entry Grade Pay for granting financial up-gradation under MACPS -reg.

Railway Board’s attention is invited to Para 2.2 of DOPT O.M. No. 22011/10/84-Estt(D) dated 4th February, 1992 which is reproduced below:

“2.2. Where the up-gradation involves a higher replacement scale without higher responsibilities or higher qualifications but with a higher eligibility service, the incumbent need not be assessed for their suitability but it should be ensured that they have completed the requisite qualifying service for appointment to the upgraded post. In case they had completed the qualifying service on or before the date notified by the Government, they may be appointed to the upgraded post from that date. In the case of other who fulfill the qualifying service on a later date, they should be appointed to the upgraded post from the date on which they complete the qualifying service. This would be subject to the condition that irrespective of the date of appointment, the original seniority of the incumbent in the grade prior to up-gradation will be maintained for appointment to the upgraded post”.

The Railway Board is aware that those pharmacists who have put in 2 years service in Grade Pay Rs.2800/- (PB-1) were upgraded to the next Grade Pay of Rs.4200/- (PB-2). This up-gradation has to be termed as “appointment” in terms of Para 2.2 of DOP&T O.M. dated 4th February, 1992.

The Railway Board vide letter No.PV/2009/ACP/2 dated 20th April, 2011 addressed to the GMs had however clarified that every financial up-gradation has to be treated as an up-gradation and accordingly placement of Pharmacists in Grade Pay of Rs.4200/- in PB-2 on completion of 2 years regular service in the Grade Pay of Rs.2800/- in PB-1 has been counted/treated as one up-gradation under the MACP Scheme. This clarification of the Railway Board is contrary to Para 2.2 of DOP&T O.M. dated 4th February, 1992. In the said Para 2.2 of DOP&T O.M., it has been clearly stated that where the up-gradation involves only a higher replacement scale without any additional responsibility/higher qualification but with a higher eligibility service, the incumbents need not be assessed for their suitability, but it should be ensured that they have completed the requisite qualifying service for “appointments” to the upgraded post.

The Pharmacists of GP Rs.2800/- (PB-1) have been upgraded to GP Rs.4200/- (PB-2) having fulfilled 2 years service prescribed in the grade pay of Rs.2800/-. Their entry into Grade Pay of Rs.4200/- (PB-2) has to be treated as “appointment” in terms of Para 2.2 of DOP&T O.M. dated 4th February, 1992, thus they are required to be considered for granting financial up-gradations under MACPS.

NFIR therefore requests the Railway Board to kindly review the case a fresh and issue clarification, allowing benefit of MACPS to the Pharmacist category duty reckoning entry into the Grade Pay of Rs.4200/- as “appointment”.

Yours faithfully,
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)

Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS) for the Railway Employees : Implementation of 7th CPC recommendations

MACPS for Railway Employees – 7th CPC Implementation

Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS) for the Railway Employees

RAILWAY ORDERS

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS
(RAILWAY BOARD)

S.No.PC-VII/12
No.PC-V/2016/MACPS/1

RBE No.155/2016
New Delhi, dated 19.12.2016

The General Managers
All Indian Railways & PUs
(As per mailing list)

Subject: Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS) for the Railway Employees – Implementation of seventh CPC recommendations.

The Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme was introduced with effect from 01.09.2008 in pursuance of the recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission by this Ministry’s letter No. PC-V/2009/ACP/2, dated 10.06.2009 (RBE No.101/2009). Thereafter, subsequent amendments/clarifications were issued from time to time. These instructions are in force with effect from 01.09.2008.

2.The 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) in para 5.1.44 of its report has recommended inter-alia as follows:

MACP will continue to be administered at 10,20 and 30 years as before. In the new Pay Matrix, the employee will move to immediate next level in hierarchy. Fixation of pay will follow the same principle as that for a regular promotion in the Pay Matrix. MACPS will continue to be applicable to all employees up to Higher Administrative Grade (HAG) level except members of Organised Group ‘A’ Services.

3.The Government has considered the above recommendation and has accepted the same. In the light of the recommendations of the 7th CPC accepted by the Government, the Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS) will continue to be administered at 10, 20 and 30 years as before. Further, Para 1 and 2 of the existing Scheme (Annexure to this Ministry’s letter No.PC-V/2009/ACP/2, dt.10.06.2009) will be substituted by the following words:

“1. There shall be three financial upgradations under the MACPS as per 7th CPC recommendations. counted from the direct entry grade on completion of 10, 20 and 30 years services respectively or 10 years of continuous service in the same level in Pay Matrix, whichever is earlier.

2. The MACPS envisage merely placement in the immediate next higher level in the Pay Matrix as given in PART ‘A’ of Schedule of Railway Services (Revised Pay) Rules. 2016. Thus, the level in the Pay Matrix at the time of financial upgradation under the MACPS can, in certain cases be different than what is available in the normal hierarchy at the time of regular promotion in one’s AVC. In such cases, the higher level in the Pay Matrix attached to the next promotion post in the hierarchy of the concerned cadre/organization will be given only at the time of regular promotion.”

4. The 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) in Para 5.1.45 of its report has in teralia recommended as follow:

“Benchmark for performance appraisal for promotion and financial upgradation under MACPS to be enhanced from ‘Good’ to’Very Good’. “

5. The Government has considered the above recommendation and has accepted the same. In the light of the recommendations of the 7th CPC accepted by the Government, Para 17 of the Scheme (Annexure to Board’s letter No.PC-V/2009/ACP/2, dt. 10.02.2009) shall be substituted by the following words:-

” 17. For grant of financial upgradation under the MACPS, the prescribed benchmark would be ‘Very Good’ for all the posts.”

6. These changes will come into effect from 25th July, 2016, i.e., from the date of resolution notified by Department of Expenditure, Ministry of Finance regarding acceptance of the recommendations of the 7th CPC.

6.1 MACPS where it was due earlier to 25.07.2016, but not decided yet due to Administrative delay, will be decided as per criteria prevalent at that time. Cases that became due on or after 25.07.2016, will be decided as per new criteria. However, Past Cases, decided otherwise, need not be re-opened.

7. The comprehensive MACP Scheme on acceptance of Seventh Central Pay Commission recommendations will be issued separately.

8. This issues with the concurrence of the Finance Directorate of the Ministry of Railway.

9. Hindi version is enclosed.

7th Pay Commission MACP Pay fixation : How to fix Pay on MACP ?

7th Pay Commission MACP Pay fixation – How to fix pay of central government employees on grant of MACP (Modified Assured Career Progression) on or after 1st January 2016?

MACP Scheme which was introduced on implementation of 6th Pay Commission by revising Annual Career Progression Scheme (ACP) is continued to be effective after implementation of 7th Pay Commission with following changes.

Note for freshers
What is MACP?
This is a non-functional financial upgradation scheme meant for central government employees on completion of 10th, 20th and 30th Years of service when no promotion is granted during this period

1. The benchmark for considering the grant of MACP to Central Government Employees has been increased. Earlier the benchmark recorded in APAR (Annual Performance Appraisal Report) as “Good” will be the minimum eligibility. Now benchmark in APAR for grant of MACP after 7th Pay Commission has been revised to “Very Good”.

Accordingly, MACP OM dated 19.04.2009 has been modified by OM O.M. No.F.No.35034/3/2015-Estt.(D), dated 28.09.2016 as follows

“17. For grant of financial upgradation under the MACPS, the prescribed benchmark would be ‘Very Good’ for all the posts.”

2. MACP prior to 7th Pay Commission implementation involves placement in the next grade pay in the grade pay hierarchy and 3% increment in Basic Pay (pay in pay band and grade pay).

After implementation of 7th Pay Commission, financial upgradation under MACP is granted by providing one increment in the existing pay level and placing to equal or next higher pay in the next higher level of pay matrix.

MACP Pay fixation after 7th Pay Commission Implementation as per OM dated 28.09.2016 and Rule 13 of 7th Pay Commission (Revised) Pay Rules 2016:

Illustration 1 : MACP on 1st August 2016:(Applicable to employees granted MACP between 2nd July and 1st January )

1. 7th Pay commission Pay of an employee is fixed as Rs. 34900 in Level 5 (as against grade pay of Rs. 2800 in 6th CPC Pay) as on 1st January 2016.

2. As on 1st July 2016, he will be entitled to annual increment. Therefore, his pay will be fixed as Rs. 35,900/- at Level 5 Index 8.

3. He is entitled to MACP as on 1st August 2016.

4. In this case, financial upgradation under MACP is granted as follows.

Step 1: Existing Pay of Employee which is in Index 8 of Level 5 will be provided with MACP Increment and therefore his pay will be placed in Level 5 – Index 9, viz., in 37,000/-

Step 2. Since there is no pay in the next level (level 6) which is equal to Rs. 37,000/-, the next higher basic pay in Level 6 is Rs. 37,600/- which is at Index 3 of Level 6.

The relevant portion of Pay Matrix is given below.

Grade Pay 2400 2800 4200
Entry Pay (EP) 9910 11360 13500
Level 4 5 6
Index 2.57 2.57 2.62
1 25500 29200 35400
2 26300 30100 36500
3 27100 31000 37600
4 27900 31900 38700
5 28700 32900 39900
6 29600 33900 41100
7 30500 34900 42300
8 31400 35900 43600
9 32300 37000 44900
10 33300 38100 46200

As per Rule 9 of 7th Pay commission Pay Rules 2016 the next date of annual increment in respect of this employee will be on 1st July 2017.

Illustration 2 : MACP on 1st March 2016:(Applicable to employees granted MACP between 2nd January and 1st July )

1. 7th Pay commission Pay of an employee is fixed as Rs. 55,200/- in Index 6 Level 8 (as against grade pay of Rs. 4800 in 6th CPC Pay) as on 1st January 2016.

2. He is entitled to MACP as on 1st March 2016.

3. As per O.M. No.F.No.35034/3/2015-Estt.(D), dated 28.09.2016, recommendations of 7th Pay Commission on MACP takes effect from 25th July 2016.

4. (i) Hence, an employee who is granted financial upgradation under MACP in the year 2016 between 2nd January to 1st July, can have his/her MACP pay fixed in 7th CPC Pay Matrix only if he/she exercise the option under FR22(I) a(1) for fixation of pay from 1st January 2017 viz., the next date of his/her annual increment.

Note: As per FR 22 (I) (a) (1), central government employees have the option, to have their pay fixed from the date of promotion / MACP or from the date of next increment.

Note: As per Rule 9 of 7th Pay Commission Revised Pay Rules 2016, An employee who is granted MACPS during the period between 2nd day of January, 2016 and 1st day of July, 2016, and who did not draw any increment on 1st day of July, 2016, the next increment shall accrue on 1st day of January, 2017

(ii) If an employee who is granted MACP in the year 2016 did not opt for moving his/her MACP pay fixation from the next date of increment i.e in January 2017, under FR 22 (I) (a) (1), he / she would end up with MACP Pay Fixation in pre-revised pay (6th CPC Pay) as on 1st March 2016 by exercising the option to defer the fixation 7th Pay Commission implemented pay until 1st March 2016 under Rule 5 of 7th Pay Commission Rules 2016.

(iii) Since, MACP in 7th Pay Commission Pay matrix takes effect from 25th July 2016, Employees who are granted financial upgradation under MACP from the year 2017, between 2nd January to 1st July, can have their pay fixed without exercising the option under FR22(I) a(1).

5. In this case, the most beneficial financial upgradation under MACP will be option chosen as detailed in 4 (i) above and the same is granted as follows.

Step 1: Grant of Annual increment of employee from 1st January 2017 will precede MACP fixation. Therefore, after annual increment his pay will be fixed at Rs. 56,900/- in the Index 7 Level 8.

Step 2: Then the employee will be provided with MACP Increment and therefore his pay will be placed at Rs. 58,600/ in Index 8 Level 8.

Step 3. Since there is no pay in the next level (level 9) which is equal to Rs. 58,600/-, the next higher basic pay in Index 5 Level 9 is Rs. 59,700/-. So, on MACP fixation the pay of employee will be fixed at Rs. 59,700/-.

The relevant portion of Pay Matrix is given below.

Dopt orders on MACP: Benchmark to be enhanced from Good to Very Good for all the posts

G.I, Dep. of Per. & Trg., O.M. No.F.No.35034/3/2015-Estt.(D), dated 28.09.2016

Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS) for the Central Government Civilian Employees : Implementation of Seventh CPC recommendations.

The Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme was introduced with effect from 01.09.2008 in pursuance of the recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission by this Department’s OM No.35034/3/2008-Estt(D) dated 19th May, 2009. Subsequently, clarifications/ FAQs were issued vide OM dated 16.11.2009, 09.09.2010, 01.04.2011, 13.06.2012, 04.10.2012 and 10.12.2014. These instructions are in force with effect from 01.09.2008.

2. The 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) in para 5.1.44 of its report has recommended inter-alia as follows:

MACP will continue to be administered at 10, 20 and 30 years as before. In the new Pay Matrix, the employee will move to immediate next level in hierarchy. Fixation of pay will follow the same principle as that for a regular promotion in the Pay Matrix. MACPS will continue to be applicable to all employees up to Higher Administrative Grade (HAG) level except members of Organised Group A Services.

3. The Government has considered the above recommendation and has accepted the same. In the light of the recommendations of the 7th CPC accepted by the Government, the Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS) will continue to be administered at 10, 20 and 30 years as before. Further, Para 1 and 2 of the existing Scheme (Annexure to this Department’s OM No. 35024/3/2008-Estt.D dated 19th May, 2009) will be substituted by the following words:-

1. There shall be three financial upgradations under the MACPS as per 7th CPC recommendations, counted from the direct entry grade on completion of 10, 20 and 30 years services respectively or 10 years of continuous service in the same level in Pay Matrix, whichever is earlier.

2. The MACPS envisages merely placement in the immediate next higher level in the Pay Matrix as given in PART A of Schedule of the CCS (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016, Thus, the level in the Pay Matrix at the time of financial upgradation under the MACPS can, in certain cases where regular promotion is not between two successive levels in the Pay Matrix, be different than what is available at the time of regular promotion. In such cases, the higher level in the Pay Matrix attached to the next promotion post in the hierarchy of the concerned cadre/organisation will be given only at the time of regular promotion”.

4. The 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) in Para 5.1.45 of its report has interalia recommended as follows:

Benchmark for performance appraisal for promotion and financial upgradation under MACPS to be enhanced from ‘Good’ to ‘Very Good’.

5. The Government has considered the above recommendation and has accepted the same. In the light of the recommendations of the 7th CPC accepted by the Government, Para 17 of the Scheme (Annexure to OM No.35024/3/2008-Estt.D dated 19th My, 2009) shall be substituted by the following words:-

17. For grant of financial upgradation under the MACPS, the prescribed benchmark would be ‘Very Good’ for all the posts.

6. These changes will come into effect from 25th July, 2016, i.e., from the date of resolution notified by Department of Expenditure, Ministry of Finance regarding acceptance of the recommendation of the 7th CPC.

7. The comprehensive MACP Scheme on acceptance of Seventh Central Pay Commission recommendations will be issued separately.

Grant of 6600 GP as 3rd MACP to Nursing Personnel in Railways: NFIR

Grant of GP 6600/- in PB-3 as 3rd MACP to Nursing Personnel in Railways-reg.

NFIR
National Federation of Indian Railwaymen
3, CHELMSFORD ROAD, NEW DELHI – 110055
Affiliated to:
Indian National Trade Union Congress (INTUC)
International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF)

No.IV/MACPS/09/Part 10

Dated: 12/09/2016

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Grant of GP 6600/- in PB-3 as 3rd MACP to Nursing Personnel in Railways-reg.

Ref: Ministry of Health and Family Welfare’s O.M. No. Z-28015/5/2016-N(Pt.) dated 09th September 2016.

NFIR invites kind attention of Railway Board to the O.M. dated 09th September 2016 issued by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (copy enclosed) on the subject relating to granting GP 6600/- (PB-3) as 3rd MACP to the Nursing Personnel of the Central Government. Para A of the said O.M. states that those staff nurses/nursing sisters/assistant nursing superintendents who have been awarded 1st and 2nd financial upgradation under ACP Scheme in the hierarchy of Pay Scales Rs. 5500-9000 and 6500-10500 upto 31st August 2008 are entitled for replacement Grade Pay of Rs. 4800/- (PB-2) and Rs. 5400/- (PB-3). In the said para it has also been stated that the 3rd financial upgradation under MACPS wherever granted in GP 5400/- (PB-3), the same be revised to GP 6600/- (PB-3).

From the above decision of the Ministry of Family Health and Welfare, it is clear that those Nursing Personnel in Railways, promoted to Scale Rs. 5500-9000 (V CPC) or got ACP benefit are to be treated as holders of GP 4800/- (PB-2) and those who were in Pay Scale Rs. 6500-10500/7450-11500 either through 2nd ACP or through promotion upto 31st August 2008 be treated as holders of GP 5400/- (PB-3). As the MACPS came into effect from 01/09/2008, those Nursing Personnel who got Grade Pay 5400/- (PB-3) and fulfilled the condition for entitlement of 3rd financial upgradation, they should be granted GP 6600 (PB-3) as 3rd MACP. The Federation states further that the cases of Nursing personnel who have been granted GP 5400 as 3rd financial upgradation under MACPS, needs to be reviewed for granting GP 6600 as 3rd MACP instead GP 5400 (PB-3).

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to issue modified instructions to the GMs etc., for allowing GP 6600/- (PB-3) as 3rd financial upgradation under MACPS to the Nursing Personnel in lieu of GP 5400 (PB-3).

Yours faithfully,

Sd/-

Pay Fixation on Promotion or MACP in 7th CPC – Option Calculation with illustrations

Pay Fixation on Promotion or MACP in 7th CPC – Option Calculation with illustrations

7th CPC Promotion Option Calculation

All the central government employees are in busy with calculating which Option is beneficial to them in order to get full benefit from 7th CPC Revised pay .

 

Actually there is no dilemma for CG employees those who didn’t get any Promotion/MACP from 1st January to 1st July 2016. There are some cases in this category that choosing Option to revise Pay from Date of Next Increment gives more benefit than opting 1.1.2016 to revise 7th CPC Pay .

The government servants those who got Promotion / MACP in the Period from 2nd January to 1st July are finding it difficult to decide which Option is correct and More beneficial to them. No body in the administrative Department ready to guide the right way to the Government servants since there is no clarity in 7th CPC in respect of Revising/Fixing pay on Promotion Date. But It was clearly illustrated in Sixth CPC.

 

Let us workout the Pay Fixation in different Options to revise pay in 7th CPC to understand which Option is Beneficial in Longer run.

 

Let us take an example,

Assume a government servant has been promoted to Next Grade to 2800 on any date between 2nd January 2016 to 1st July 2016. Let us take 1st march 2016 was his date of Promotion.

His existing pay as on 1.1.2016 = Band Pay of 9100 + Grade pay of 2400 = 11500

If He Choose Option -I to revise his Pay from 1.1.2016

macp-7thCPC-2

b) Fixation for Option to revise Pay on Promotion Date need to be Clarified by Government

Since there is no Grade pay involved in 7th CPC, Adding Grade Pay difference on Promotion date is not applicable in 7th Pay Commission for this category.

 

macp-7thCPC-2

 

Which Option is More beneficial ..?

From the above calculation, it shows that Selecting Option -II to revise Pay with effect from Date of Next Increment i.e 1st July 2016 is more beneficial than Option-I.

 

It may differ to individual to individual based on Grade Pay and no of increments earned in that Particular Grade.

The Impact of Selecting Option -II in the above case

a. Pay revision come into force with effect from 1st July 2016,

b. You have to travel in Sixth CPC Pay up to 30th June 2016

c. So There will be no arrears for the Period from January 2016 to June 2016

Government’s acceptance of 7th CPC recommendation – Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme

Government’s acceptance of 7th CPC recommendation – Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme

 

 

No. IV/NFIR/7 CPC(Imp)/2016/MoF

Dated : 02/08/2016

The Cabinet Secretary,
Government of India,
Rastraapati Bhavan Annexie,
New Delhi

Respected Sir,

Sub: Government’s acceptance of 7th CPC recommendation – Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme – reg.

 

NFIR invites kind attention of the Government to the acceptance of 7th CPC recommendations circulated by the Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure) vide Resolution No. 1-2/2016-IC dated 25th July 2016, the Annexure II of which contains the decision in relation to Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS) as given below:-

  • “While the MACP has been continued to be administered at the intervals of 10,20 & 30 years of service to an employee as was in vogue, the benchmark for performance appraisal under the MACPS has been enhanced from “good” to “very good”.
  • It has also been decided by the Government to withhold annual increments in the case of those employees who are unable to meet the benchmark for MACP or on regular promotion within first 20 years of the service of the employee”.

In this connection, NFIR conveys that the Government has not consulted JCM (Staff Side) before taking decision as above although this being one of the issues contained in the Charter of demands, seeking discussion. The decision has caused disappointment among Railway employees and as well Central Government employees. Upgrading the bench mark from “good” to “very good” for granting financial upgradation under MACPS would provide unfettered powers to the superiors to victimize and give scope to favour the liked staff on “pick” and “choose” basis. The decision for withholding annual increments on the pretext that employees are unable to meet the bench mark for MACP or regular promotion within first 20 years of service would not only demoralize the staff but also give handle for willful harassment and victimization by higher Officials.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Cabinet Secretary who is also the Chairman of the JCM, to kindly hold meeting with the Staff Side representatives for resolving the issues amicably through discussions.

Yours sincerely

1. With profound regards we on behalf of more than 50 recognized associations functioning in various directorates of MoD request your honour for redressal of our genuine and justified grievances with regard to the injustice about the financial up-gradation under MACP Scheme inflicted upon the weaker section of the subordinate employees by the Govt of India during 2009 quite wrongly and against all the canon of justice. During the regime of NDA Govt. heated by the then Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Atal Bihar Vajpayee Ji an ACP Scheme to the employees of group B. C & D was granted in the form of two financial up-gradations in the promotional hierarchy after completion of 12 & 24 years service as a ‘safety net’ to deal with the problem of genuine stagnation due to inadequate promotional avenues. Alas! The above just and genuine scheme was ruthlessly distorted and destroyed during 2009 by the then UPA Govt by converting it into the MACP Scheme on Grade pay basis instead of the promotional hierarchy as it was in ACPS, resulting into the great detriment and huge financial and terminal benefit loss to the employees.

2. It is submitted with respect that the said scheme of MACPs was switched over from existing ACPS without having any consideration of anomalous consequences and awful repercussions in the matter of financial discriminations. With a view to further clarify the anomaly of this scheme it would be imperative to quote an example here that a Junior Engineer in MES who complete his 24 years service on 31-08-2008 shall be granted the 2rd up-gradation in pay scale of Executive Engineers i.e. in the PB-3 (15600-39100) + Grade Pay 6600/- in the erstwhile ACPs, where as the another Junior Engineers having completed the 30 years on 01-09-2008 is eligible for 3rd up-gradation in PB-2 (9300-34800) + Grade Pay 5400/- under the modified ACPs resulting in huge loss at least Rs. 20,000/- per month even after putting 6 years extra period of his services. Subsequently these anomalous and unjust projections were consequently brought into the notice of the authorities and persuaded vigorously but all in vain despite their admission about the said anomalies.

3. Finding no way out, the employees from different departments of Central Govt including MoD sought for the legal intervention by filing the petitions in the Hon’ble CAT Chandigarh, New Delhi, Guwahati, Calcutta and Ernakulum etc. Wherein all the judgments were in favour of the employees directing the respondents to grants the MACPs in promotional hierarchy. In the appeals filed by the Govt. in the Hon’ble High Courts the orders of the various CAT stands upheld Unfortunately, the Govt. further preferred to file the SLPs in the Hon’ble Supreme Court against the orders of the Hon’ble High Courts admittedly, the Hon’ble Supreme Court would take a considerable time to deliver its judgment on the said SLPs. Such delay to deliver the justice shall adversely affect a large chunk of the poor employees who are not in position to contest the case in Supreme Court owing to their financial constraints. In this context it is pertinent to mention here that the Hon’ble Supreme Court opined that in case of service matters where the High Courts and benches of CAT delivered the judgements in favour of the employees, no appeal in the Supreme Court by the Govt. is desirable.

4. We would also like to draw your kind attention to the fact that earlier the status of CAT remained equal to High Court and an employee had to contest his case at two stages only i.e. in CAT and then in Hon’ble Supreme Court but later on the channel contesting the case became CAT then High Court and then further Hon’ble Supreme Court. Therefore the opinion of Hon’ble Supreme Court that way is quite genuine.

5. In view of the above mentioned circumstances we pray before your esteemed authority to kindly be graciously pleased to direct the concerned department of Govt, of India for withdrawal of SLPs from the Hon’ble Supreme Court in order to provide the relief to the weaker sections of the society and to meet the ends of justice as a special case. We do hope that your kind action in the matter will certainly bring the good days for the subordinate employees of the Central Govt.
