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.”

Dear Sir,

Sub: Grant of financial up-gradation under MACPS in the promotional hierarchy – (instead of Grade Pay hierarchy) – Item No.3 of Record Note of discussion held between the Federation and ED’s Railway Board on 12-10-2015 on MACPS Anomalies – reg.

(ii) NFIR’s Letter No.IV/MACPS/09/Part 9 dated 05-01-2016 & 18-01-2016

Further to above, Federation furnishes below yet another category viz., Shorff cadre (Cash & Pay Department – Receipt side) in which case the ACP Scheme was more advantageous than the MACP Scheme introduced by the Railway Board vide Board’s letter No.PC-V/2009/ACP/2 dated 10-06-2009, w.e.f. 01-09-2008.

 

macp-on-promotional-hierarchy-pay-scale

Note: * The above comparison clearly establishes the fact that under ACP Scheme the staff got financial up-gradation in Pay Scale Rs.5000-8000/GP 4200/- on completion of 24 years of service whereas under MACP Scheme, the staff gets GP 2800/- (replacement Grade Pay) on completion of three decades and they cannot dream of reaching GP 4200 (PB-2) under MACPS.

 

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to include the above category of staff in the reference agreed to be made to the DoP&T for seeking guidelines.

Yours faithfully

NFIR provides below the details of the cadres to whom ACP Scheme was more advantageous than the MACP Scheme introduced by the Railway Board w.e.f. 01/09/2008 – Board’s letter No. PC-V/2009/ACP/2 dated 10/06/2009:-

Note: *The employee has to wait for 6 years more to get GP 2800/- which is the replacement pay scale of Rs.4500- 7000 (Vth CPC) under MACP Scheme.

nfir-macp-grade-pay-hierarchy-pay-scale-acp
Note: *While the Stenographer got 5OOO-8OOO/GP4200/- on completion of 12 years under ACP, he should wait for 20 years under MACPS. Similarly he should complete 30 years for becoming eligible for GP 4600/- whereas under ACPS he could become eligible on completion of 24 years service.

The comparative position between ACPS and MACPS as mentioned above establishes that in Railways the employees have been put to grave disadvantage leading to serious resentment against MACP Scheme

Pay Fixation on MACP as per 6th Pay Commission – Some Illustrations

Pay Fixation on MACP as per 6th Pay Commission – Some Illustrations

Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS)

MACP clarifications is given with useful illustrations for Defence Civilian Employees. This type of explanations is very useful to know and clarify the doubts of the new scheme. Wittingly to clear in the particular subject, because it is connecting with lifetime promotion of every employee.

This scheme for career upgradations to Central Govt. employees was introduced with effect from 1-09-2008 with introduction of revised pay rules 2008.

This scheme has replaced earlier scheme of Assured Career Progression Scheme of August 1999.

Under this scheme, an employee would get at least three career upgradations during his entire service on completion of 10,20 and 30 years of service.

Under this scheme an employee would be placed in next higher grade pay on completion of 10 years in previous grade and in case of no promotion has been offered to him.

a. Illustrations of Grant of MACP – Illustration – 1

In case of recruitment of an individual in Grade Pay (GP) of Rs.4200 with no promotion for 10 years,

1st financial upgradation after 10 years with GP-Rs.4600;
2nd financial upgradation after (10+10) 20 years with GP- Rs.4800;
3rd financial upgradation after (10+10+10) 30 years with GP- Rs.5400.

Illustration – 2

In case of recruitment of an individual in Grade Pay (GP) of Rs.4200 with first promotion after 5 years with GP of Rs. 4600,

The promotion will be considered as 1st financial upgradation;
2nd financial Up gradation after (5+10) 15 years with GP-Rs.4800;
3rd financial up-gradation after (5+10+10) 25 years with GP-Rs.5400.

Illustration – 3

In case of recruitment of an individual in Grade Pay (GP) of Rs.4200 with 1st promotion in 5 years with GP-Rs.4600 and 2nd promotion after 8 years,(5+8=13 years) with GP of Rs.4800,

He will get only 3rd financial up-gradation after (5+8+10) 23 years with GP-Rs.5400.

b. Norms for grant of MACP

The financial up gradation would be on non-functional basis subject to fitness in the hierarchy of pay band and grade pay.

The only benchmark of “Good” would be applicable till the grade pay of Rs.6600 in PB-3.

The benchmark will be “Very Good” for financial upgradation to the grade pay of Rs.7600 and above.

However, if the financial upgradation under the MACPS also happen to be in the promotional grade and benchmark for promotion is lower than the benchmark for granting the benefits under MACPS as mentioned in Para 17 of the scheme, the benchmark for promotion shall apply to MACP also.

c. Clarifications on MACP

If the promotional hierarchy as per recruitment rules is such that promotions are earned in the same grade pay, then the same shall be counted for the purposes of MACP.

Only the continuous regular service is counted towards qualifying service and the regular service shall commence from the date of joining in direct entry grade on the MACP envisages merely placement in the immediate next higher grade pay as given in Section1, Part A of first schedule of the CCS (Revised Pay) Rules 2008.

Financial upgradation will also be admissible whenever a person has spent 10 years in the same grade pay.

Only regular service rendered in the Central Government Department/Office would be counted for the purposes of grant of MACP.

All tenures spent on deputation, Foreign Service, study leave, all kind of leave, shall be included in the regular service.

d. The benefits of MACP are admissible upto HAG scale of Rs. 67000-79000.

All cases of grant of promotions/ACPs under pre-revised pay scales of Rs. 5000-8000, Rs. 5500-9000, Rs. 6500-10500 and Rs. 7400-11500 and if those merged w.e.f. 1-1-2006 would be ignored for purpose of grant of financial upgradation under the scheme.

Clarification on 2nd ACP to Senior Accountants of CCAS cadre – NFCAA

Clarification with regard to 2nd ACP to Senior Accountants of CCAS cadre appointed as Accountant on the basis of Limited Departmental Competitive Examination

All India Civil Accounts Employees Association
(RECOGNISED BY GOVT. OF INDIA)
CENTRAL HEADQUARTER

No: AICAEA/HQ/A-2/2014/4

Dated: 02.01.2015

To,
Shri Jawahar Thakur,
Controller General of Accounts,
Ministry of Finance,
Department of Expenditure,
Loknayak Bhawan,
Khan Market,
New Delhi – 110003

Subject:- Clarification with regard to 2nd ACP to Senior Accountants of CCAS cadre appointed as Accountant on the basis of Limited Departmental Competitive Examination.

Ref:- O.M. No. A-11019/25/05/MF.CGA (A)/NGE/AICAEA-HQ/289 dated 27.10.2014 issued by the office of CGA.

Sir,

I have been directed to refer to the above and draw your kind attention to the following few lines in the matter of grant of IInd financial upgradation under ACPs to those who were appointed as Junior Accountants on the basis of the results of Departmental Competitive Examination conducted by the SSC during the years 1981 & 1982-

1. The candidates who had qualified the Departmental Competitive Examination for the posts of Junior Accountants conducted by the Staff Selection Commission during the year 1981 & 1982 against direct recruitment quota of different departments of Civil Accounts Organization are required to be equated with the Junior Accountants who were directly recruited through the examination conducted by the Staff Selection Commission for recruitment to the post of Junior Accountant as the standard and method of both the examinations were similar at that point of time.

2. Clarification No. 8 of the DOPT O.M. No. 35034/1/97/Estt. (D) Vol-IV dated 10th February 2000 states that, if relevant Recruitment Rules provide for filling up of vacancies by direct recruitment, induction of a person from lower grade in the next grade through Limited Departmental Competitive examination may be treated as direct recruitment for the purpose of ACPs. In such cases, service rendered in a lower pay scale shall not be counted for the purpose of benefit under ACPs. Not only this, the said order nowhere states that the benefit under ACPs shall be limited to those incumbents only where there is a change of their cadre/service.

3. The CCAs (Group – C) Recruitment Rules provides for filling up of vacancies in the grade of Accountant through direct recruitment and it fulfills the requirements stated in the clarification No. 8 of the DOPT O.M. No. 35034/1/97/Estt. (D) Vol – IV dated 10th February 2000.

4. The scheme of granting ACP was introduced in the year 1998-1999, whereas the officials who have qualified the departmental competitive examination prior to the issuance of the DOPT orders should in no way be deprived of this benefit. In fact, the clarification was specifically meant for such officials only.

5. The benefit of the scheme has already been implemented in CGA’s organizations itself. Examples are as below:-

i) CBEC: – Pr. CCA, CBEC, New Delhi vide order No. Admn.1 (17) 9/ACP Scheme/770 office order No. 164 dated 14.08.2007 granted IInd financial upgradation with effect from 01.04.2007 to Shri A.J. Kulkarni (PAO, CEX, Pune). He had qualified the departmental competitive examination conducted by the SSC in the year 1981.

ii) CBDT: – Pr. CBDT, New Delhi office order No. Admn.ii/5-23/ACP/Sr.Acctt/2005-06/486 dated 16/23.03.2007 granted IInd financial upgradation with effect from 06/08.07.2007 to Shri S.N. Kaulgud, ZAO, CBDT, Pune. He had qualified the departmental competitive examination conducted by the SSC in the year 1982. Incidentally, it may be placed for your information and record that Shri S.N. Kaulgud of PAO, CBDT (Roll No – 018 rank No.-11) was granted 2nd ACP but Shri Subhash Chander Bamrara (Roll No. 010 rank No.-6) at present working under CCA, Ministry of External Affairs, New Delhi has been deprived of the same benefit while both of them had qualified the same examination in the year 1982.

iii) Min. Home Affairs: – Though there is no specific example readily available with us, but many employees of Ministry of Home Affairs were also extended the said benefit by the then Heads of The Departments.

Decisions by all the heads of the Departments had been taken with the concurrence of the Controller General of Account. There may be many others who might have been accorded the benefit of 2nd ACP and as on record only a handful of employees have been kept out of the benefit at present.

\Therefore, on behalf of this Association, I seek your personal intervention into the matter and requests you to kindly take a favorable decision of extending the benefit to the left out and deprived section of employees as a onetime measure so that they could be able to get rid of the feelings of discrimination they have been suffering from due to non-receipt of their legitimately due benefit on par with their batch mates.

Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS) Clarifications

Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS) Clarifications

1.   Loco Running staff (Ref  2)

As per promotional hierarchy in the category of Loco Pilots, the following grades are coming:

  • ALP-II (GP Rs. 1900)
  • ALP-I (GP Rs. 2400)
  • LPS-II (GP Rs. 2400)
  • LPS-I (GP Rs. 4200)
  • LPG-(GP Rs. 4200)

Whenever Shunters are not available to fill up the posts of LP (Goods), eligible candidates from lower grades even from ALP-II (GP 1900) are called and promoted as LPG (GP 4200). In such situation the employee should be treated as having earned two promotions.

2.   Direct recruit Graduate Engineers of drawing Cadre(Ref  3)

Engineer Graduates recruited initially in the grade of Rs. 5500-9000 & promoted to Rs. 6500-10500 against the 20% DR quota shall be treated at par with the fresh recruits in the scale of Rs. 6500-10500 from the date they were promoted to the pay scale of Rs. 6500-10500 for the purpose of MACP Scheme.

3.   Guards (Ref  4)

A Senior Goods Guard promoted to Passenger Guard and further to Mail/Exp Guard under the normal promotion rules gets Grade Pay of Rs. 4200/ only while a junior Sr. Goods Guard who gets upgradation under MACPs may get the next higher grade pay of Rs. 4600/. Due to this situation, his junior will get more Grade Pay than the senior.

Board has clarified that an employee appointed as Goods Guard has earned following three promotions/financial upgradations till he reaches Mail/Express Guard, viz:-

(i) From Goods Guard to Sr. Goods Guard.

(ii) From Sr. Goods Guard to Passenger Guard.

(iii) From Sr. Passenger Guard to Mail/Express Guard (Passenger Guard to Sr. Passenger Guard to be ignored).

Thus, such employees are not entitled to any further financial upgradation under MACP Scheme.

4.   ACP and MACP

If a senior employee who got ACP prior to 01-01-2006 and drawing less pay than their juniors who got benefits under ACP Scheme between 01-01-2006 and 31-08-2008 stepping up of pay can be done in such case where the senior, but for the pay revision on account of 6th CPC, would have continued to draw higher pay provided both the junior and the senior Railway servants belong to same cadre and the posts in which they have been promoted/financially upgraded are identical in the same cadre and the senior Railway servant have been drawing equal or more pay than the junior before receiving ACP/Promotion. (Ref 5 )
5.   Own request transfer to a lower post

When an employee is reverted to the lower post/Grade from the promoted post/Grade in case of transfer on own volition to a lower post such past promotion in the previous organization/office will be ignored for the purpose of MACP Scheme in the new organization/office.  In respect of those cases where benefit of pay protection have been allowed at the time of unilateral transfer to other organization/unit and thus the employee had carried the financial benefit of promotion, the promotion earned in previous organization has to be reckoned for the purpose of MACP Scheme.

6.   Benchmark for MACP(Ref 6)

Where the financial upgradation under the MACPS also happens to be in the promotional grade and benchmark for promotion is lower than the benchmark for granting the benefit under the MACPS , the benchmark for promotion shall apply to MACPS also. Wherever promotions are given on non-selection basis (ie, on seniority-cum-fitness basis ), the prescribed benchmark shall not apply for the purpose of grant of financial upgradation under MACP Scheme.
