Subject : Discrimination in granting Grade Pay on Grant of Financial Benefits under M.A.C.P. – Violation of Government Order and Judicial Verdicts.

Sir,

On behalf of members of this Association I am to submit herewith following facts for your kind consideration and early favourable action.

  1. The Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pension under O.M. No. 38/86/03- P&PW(A) dated 26-04-2004 has granted parity of Pay Scales in organized Accounts cadre w.e.f. 01-01-1996 notionally and actually from 19-02-2003 as shown below:
Sr.No. Name of the Post Existing Pay Scale as on 01-01-

3 Section Officer/Junior Accounts Officer 5500-175-9000 6500-200-10500
4 Asst. Audit Officer/Asst.Accounts Officer 6500-200-10500 7450-225-11500
  1. The hierarchal set up of the Department is:
Accountant Group ‘C’ Senior Accountant Group ‘B’ Non- Gazetted

Asst. Accounts Officer Group ‘B’

Filled in by Direct Recruitment or by Promotion from L.D.C.Promotional Post to Accountant

Promotion Post to Senior Accounts Officer on passing the Departmental Examination and on seniority – cum – fitness basis

3. The 6th Central Pay Commission has merged the post of Section Officer with Assistant Accounts Officer from 01-01-2006. The 6th Pay Commission has recommended the Pay Band 2 in the Pay Scale of Rs. 9300-34800 Plus Grade Pay of Rs. 4200/- to the Senior Accountant. The Asst. Accounts Officer were also given the Pay Band No. 2 but they were given the Grade Pay of Rs. 4800/-.

4. The Government of India, Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions under O.M. No. 35034/3/2008-Estt (D) dated 19-05-2009 has introduced the Scheme of Modified Career Progression Scheme (for brevity M.A.C.P.) which is the modified version of earlier A.C.P. Scheme. As per the Scheme the Government Servants will be granted 3 financial upgradations after completion of 10, 20 and 30 years of service if they have not received any regular Promotion. The condition No. 2 read with 6.2 of the Annexure 1 of the OM. laid down that:

“….financial upgradations under the Scheme should be done strictly in accordance with the hierarchy of grade pays in pay bands as notified vide CCS (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008″

According to the information available to this Association, the Senior Accountants are being granted Grade Pay of Rs. 4600 /-(level 7 of pay matrix) on grant of benefits under M.A.C.P.

In this connection, your kind attention is invited to the following orders/Judgments of the various Tribunals/ High Courts/Supreme Court wherein the Tribunals/ High Courts have held that the Grade Pay of hierarchical Promotion Post has to be given on grant of financial benefits under M.A.C.P.

1. Central Administrative Tribunal (C.A.T.) Ernakulam Order dated 27-09-2011 in T.P.Leena Vs. Union of India.

The Tribunal has granted the Grade Pay of Rs. 4800/- on grant of 1st Financial Benefit under M.A.C.P. from Rs. 4200/-

2. The High Court of Ernakulam has by Judgment dated 21-06-2012 in the case of Union of India Vs. T.P.Leena has upheld the Order of CAT. and Hon’ble Supreme Court has dismissed the S.L.P. by Judgment dated 15-10-2012 holding that there is no reason to interfere with Impugned Order.

[Copies of above Order/ judgments are enclosed as Annexure ‘A’)

3. CAT New-Delhi by Order dated 26-11-2012 in Sanjay Kumar & others Vs. Ministry of Defence & others has granted the Grade Pay of Promotion Post (Copy enclosed).

Sir, it would not be out of place to submit that the Controller of Accounts C.B.D.T. Mumbai in compliance of C.A.T. Mumbai order has by order No. ZAO/MACP/ADMN/12015-16 dated 01-02-2016 has granted Grade Pay of Rs. 4800[- (level 8 of Pay Matrix] to 13 Senior Accountants on grant of benefits of 2“d M.A.C.P. The copy of the Order is enclosed as Annexure ‘B’ for your perusal.

It is further submitted that the Principal Chief Controller of Accounts. Zonal Accounts Office, CBDT, Mumbai has, while quoting Principal Chief Controller of Accounts C.B.D.T. New- Delhi letter No. -PCCA/CBDT/Estt/Rep/2018-381-382 dated 01-08-2018 has granted benefits of 3rd M.A.C.P. to 16 Senior Accountants under order No. ZAO/CBDT/MUM/ADMN/MACPS/2018-191 742 dated 04-09-2018 [Copy enclosed]. The perusal of the order would exhibit that all the Senior Accountants were in receipt of Grade Pay of Rs. 4800/- (level 8 ef Pay Matrix] on grant of benefits of 2nd M.A.C.P. and they have been granted Grade Pay of Rs. 5400/-[level 9 of Pay Matrix) which is the Grade Pay of hierarchical Post of Asstt. Accounts Officer.

In View of submission made in the letter, it is clear that the members of our Association are meted out with discrimination as far as grant of Grade Pay of Rs. 4800/-[level 8 of Pay Matrix) on grant of benefits of M.A.C.P. to Senior Accountants are concerned. They are given the Grade Pay of Rs. 4600/- [level 7 of Pay Matrix). This amounts to discrimination and violative of Article 14 and 16 of the Constitution of India. It is therefore requested that the Grade Pay of Rs. 4800/-(level 8 of Pay Matrix) may please be granted to all the Senior Accountants who have been granted benefits of M.A.C.P. A comprehensive review may please be taken and set right the grave injustice caused to our members.

In this context the observation of Principal Bench New Delhi in the case of All India Defence Civilian Clerks Association of ADC and Records Office and another Vs. The Secretary, Ministry of Defence and others in order dated 01-02-2012 (Copy enclosed) assumes importance.

We do not understand the logic of the Ministry of Defence, D.0.P & T. Ministry of Finance or even the Ministry of Law as to how the aforesaid directions as upheld by Hon’ble High Court of Delhi and the Apex Court cannot be made applicable to the Applicants who are admittedly similarly placed. In our considered opinion the Respondents/Departments should desist from rejecting the genuine request of the employees and force them to knock the door of Courts unnecessarily without any justifiable grounds.

In view of above observation of Hon’ble Principal Bench 1 request you to consider our request positively and arrange to do justice by removing the discrimination between the two set of similarly situated employees.

Enclo: As stated above.

Thanking you

Yours faithfully
(V. Bhattacharjee)
Secretary General

Grant of financial upgradation under ACP & MACP Schemes for the Central Government Civilian Employees including Railway employees

NFIR

Grant of financial upgradation under ACP & MACP schemes for the central Government Civilian Employees including Railway employees

MACP

No. IV/MACPs/09/part II

Dated: 21/08/2018

The Secretary / DoP&T
(Department of personnel PG & pension),
Department of personnel & Training,
North Block,
New Delhi.

Dear Sir,

Sub: Grant of financial upgradation under ACP & MACP schemes for the central Government Civilian Employees including Railway employees – reg.

Ref: (i)  Dop&T oM No.35034/1/97-Estt (D) dated 09/08/1999.
(ii) Dop&T oM No.35034/3/2008-Estt (D) dated 19/05/2009.

NFIR invites kind attention to the OM dated 09/08/1999 wherein the Government of India (DoP&T) had introduced ‘Assured career Progression Scheme‘ (ACPs) for the central Government civilian Employees pursuant to the recommendation of 5th central pay commission. The ACP Scheme was made effective in the Central Government departments from 1999. The ACP Scheme remained functional until 31/08/2008 (as clarified by the DoP&T vide para 9 its OM dated 19/05/2009) due to the fact that the ‘Modified Assured Carrer Progression Scheme‘ was introduced by the DoP&T, replacing ACPS w.e.f. 01/09/2008, pursuant to the recommendations of 6th CPC.

The Federation has however been receiving representations from the Central Government civilian Employees, mainly railway employees from all corners of the country to make the MACP Scheme operational w.e.f. 01/01/2006
01/01/2006 instead from 0l/09/2008, pursuant to the order dated 08th December, 2017 passed by the Hon’ble Supreme Court in Civil Appeal Diary No.3744 of 2016. In this connection, NFIR places following facts for consideration:-

  • on perusal of the order of the Apex court, it is found that the Hon’ble Apex court has held that the MACP is a part of pay structure recommended by the 6th CPC, the same cannot be considerd as allowance which had been given effect from 01/09/2008. The said order has also cited the Resolution dated 30/08/2008 of the Government which was referred in the notification issued by the Ministry of Finance wherein MACP has been defined part of ‘Pay structure‘ and not as ‘Allowance‘ and therefore should be given effect from 01/01/2006.
  • The order dated 8th Dec 2017 passed by the Apex court has already been implemented by the Ministry of Defence, giving effect to the MACPs w.e.f.01/01/2006 through an OM dated 25/07/2018.
  • DoP&T may kindly take note that in para 6.5.2 & 6.5.4 of the report of 6th CPC, the Commission had recommended for implementation of the revised pay structure consisting of Pay Band and Grade Pay w.e.f. 01/01/2006 while the revised allowances were given effect from prospective date i.e. 01/09/2008.
  • Ministry of Finance vide Gazette of India, Extraordinary Notification of Resolution No. 1/1/2008-IC dated 29/08/2008 had implemented revised pay structure (Pay Band & Grade Pay) w.e.f. 01/01/2006 whereas the implementation of MACPS was made effective from 0110912008, Accordingly, Ministry of Railways also implemented revised Pay structure w.e.f. 01/01/2006 vide its order dated 04/09/2008 while the rates of Non Practicing Allowance (NPA) were revised w.e.f. 01/01/2006 vide Board’s order dated 22/09/2008. Therefore, the MACPS which is part of Pay structure as decided by Apex Court should be given effect from 01/01/2006 in railways and all other Central Government departments.
  • Another important fact which cannot be ignored is, that the Apex Court had held that the benefit of ACP granted to an employee is part of the Pay structure which not only affects the pay but also pension of the employee, therefore, decided that the ACP is not allowance but a part of pay. At the same time, the Hon’ble Supreme Court further held that there can be no dispute that grant of ACP is part of pay structure and that the resolution dated 30/08/2008 relating to implementation of 6th CPC recommendations on pay structure, pay bands, grade pay etc have been given effect from 0110112006 and also added that this is the decision of the Cabinet which could not have been modified by issuing executive instructions.
  • NFIR suggests that while issuing modified instructions, in compliance with Apex Court order, the DoP&T may allow option opportunity to all those beneficiaries of ACPS as well MACPS to exercise their option for financial upgradation from the dates advantageous to them so as to avoid further grievances.
  • Summing up, NFIR urges upon the DoP&T to kindly consider the above points and issue modified instructions for granting financial upgradation under MACPS with effect from 01/01/2006 as was done by the Ministry of Defence. A copy of the instructions issued may be endorsed to this Federation.

Yours faithfully,

(Dr.M.Raghavaiah)

2. MOD letter No.14(1)/99-D(AG) dated 25th July 2018

Dear Sir,

This office vide Letters referred at 1 above dated 16/01/2018 and 27/03/2018 has represented to your good self to make the MACP scheme effective from 1/1/2006 since the Hon’ble Supreme Court in its order in WP 3744 of 2016 dated 08/12/2017 in the matter of UOI Vs Shri Balbir Singh Turn & Anr has directed the Govt. of India to implement the MACP Scheme retro spectively from 1/112006. Till date we have not received any positive response from the DOPT. However the MOD vide letter referred at 2 above (copy enclosed) have now issued instructions to implement the MACP Scheme w.e.f. 1/1/2006 to the Armed Force Personnel by implementing the Hon’ble Supreme Court judgment. Having implemented the judgment to one set of employees and denying the same to the similarly placed employees is discriminatory and unjustified.

The Hon’ble Supreme Court has repeatedly ruled that judicial decisions in matter of a general nature should be extended to all similarly placed employees. In the case of Inderpal Yadav Vs Union of India (1985) SCC 648, the Apex court has held as Under:-

“Those who could not come to the court need not be at a comparative disadvantage position to those who rushed in here, if they are otherwise similarly situated, they are entitled to similar treatment”

In view of the above to avoid multiplicity of litigations on the matter and since the item is also before the Joint Committee on MACP, it is requested that Govt. orders may please be issued for implementing the MACP Scheme w.e.f 1/1/2006. 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 from them in this connection.

Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,

6.5.2. The Commission has devised the revised scheme of pay bands and grade pay on the basis of price index as on 1/1/2006. Consequently, the revised structure of pay bands and grade pay being recommended in this Report would need to be implemented from 1/1/2006. The Government will have to pay arrears of salary on account of fixation of pay in the revised pay bands and grade pay retrospectively with effect from 1/1/2006.

Excerpts from the Judgment of the Apex Court

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)

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

Para 5. …. 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.

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

Para 7. The answer to this question will lie in the interpretation given to the Government Resolution, relevant portion of which has been quoted hereinabove. 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.

Para 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. ….

Para 11. …… 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.

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’.

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.

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.

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.
