Grant of financial upgradation under MACP Scheme in the promotional hierarchy-instead of Grade Pay hierarchy

MACP on Promotional Hierarchy instead of Grade Pay: Less advantageous in some cases (Clerical & Steno): Railway Board unveils with example

The General Secretary,
NFIR,

Sir,

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

The undersigned is directed to refer to NFIR’s letter No.IV/MACPS/09/Part 10, dated 10.04.2017 on the above subject and to state that Board’s reply dt. 17.04.2017 is based on the factual position relating to financial upgradiation being granted presently which has been ascertained from Northern Railway.

Meanwhile an another Railway i.e. Western Railway vide their letter dt. 06.03.2017 has also apprised that Accounts Clerk and Stenographers are getting GP Rs.4600/- and GP Rs.4800/- as 3rd MACPS respectively whereas under the ACP Scheme no further financial upgradation beyond GP of Rs. 4200/- for Accounts Clerks and Rs.4600 for Stenographer would be admissible. Thus, the Federation’s contention that ACP is more advantageous than MACP Scheme for certain categories of employees is contrary to the factual position.

Further, the submissions made by the Federation seems based on theoretical premise and the same is contrary to the situation factually obtaining on Zonal Railways. As such, the Federations’ allegation that Staff are put in disadvantageous position on account of financial upgradation allowed in pay structure hierarchy under MACPS is not found validate. As requested, a copy of supporting order in respect of Office Clerk/Accounts Clerk Cadre is furnished herewith.

In view of the above, Federation is requested to appreciate the factual position. DA: As above.

Yours faithfully,

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.

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

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.

No. IV/MACPS/09/Part 10

Dated: 22/12/2016

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

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.

Yours faithfully,

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”.

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

Subject: – Settlement of the long pending issues and appropriate recommendations on 7th CPC related matters- regarding

Sir,

We have been directed to refer our letter No: AICAEA/HQ/A-2/2016/417 dated 17th April, 2016 on the subject mentioned above and state that the employees are totally aggrieved for non-settlement of their grievances for more than one and a half years.

Moreover, large numbers of the issues that were discussed in the meeting held between the official side of CGA office and the National Executive of All India Civil Accounts employees Association under your Chairpersonship on 6th November 2015 are yet to be settled. Further, it was stated in the said meeting that the

“Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure has returned the Cadre Review proposal of Group ‘B’ & ‘C’ cadres of CCAS with the remarks that proposal may be re-examined in terms of instructions contained in their O.M. NO. 5(3)/E.III/97 dated 07.01.1999 and No. 7(1)/E.Coord/2014 dated 29.10.2014. DoE has also informed that the revision of pay in respect of Civil Accounts Employees will not be done in isolation and the same may be viewed and examined in the larger context of Organized Accounts Service as a whole. Therefore, the matter will be examined by DoE, MoF, in a holistic manner keeping in view the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission as well. The Association was therefore asked to wait for the 7th Pay Commission recommendation and the decision of the Government.”

But, we would like to bring the following facts to your kind information –

1. Pending implementation of 7CPC recommendations, the Ministry of Finance has accorded approval to the Cadre Review proposals of the Department of Posts.

2. The C&AG has made his recommendations to the Government for cadre review/ cadre restructuring/ amendments in the Recruitment Rules.

Hence, in view of these facts and as per the DOPT instructions, cadre review of the Gr. B & C employees of Civil Accounts Employees, which should have been done much earlier and before the cadre review of the Gr “A” cadres of Civil Accounts organization was done in 2012-13, needs to be initiated immediately in consultation with the Associations.

Apart from the above, the employees and officers of Civil Accounts organization are yet to learn about the recommendations given by the Controller General of Accounts to the Empowered Committee constituted by the Government for implementing the recommendations of 7CPC.

Therefore, for the purpose of review of the status of the issues discussed on 6th November 20159 (including the issue of Cadre Review) and to be appraised about the recommendations given by the Controller General of Accounts to the Empowered Committee constituted, our National Executive Members wish to meet you on 10th June 2016. We shall be thankful if you kindly accept our proposal and make it convenient to meet us on the proposed date. Time of the meeting may kindly be intimated to us at an early date please.

It may kindly be noted that the issues for discussion in the meeting will be the items forwarded by us through our letter dated 17th April, 2016.

 

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully

Subject: – Settlement of the long pending issues and appropriate recommendations on 7th CPC related matters- regarding

Sir,

We have been directed to refer the letters No; AICAEA/HQ/A-2/2016/ 229-59 dated 09.03.2016 and No: – AICAEA/HQ/A-2/2016/ 271 dated: 10.03.2016 of All India Civil Accounts Employees Association and its subsequent letters dated 31.03.2016, 01.04.2016, 08.04.2016 and 12.04.2016 respectively on the subject mentioned above and state that the opportunities of career advancement of different categories of Civil Accounts employees has been halted as no departmental examination was conducted by the Civil Accounts authorities for last one and a half years. Non-conducting of AAO(Civil) examination from the year 2014 onwards alone has virtually created chain linked adverse affect on totality of the Civil Accounts Employees right from MTS to AAO. None of the categories have been getting their legitimately due benefits of promotion and financial upgradations etc. We have already requested to your good self through our earlier correspondences to kindly conduct the examinations at the earliest so that the grievances of the employees in general are resolved.

Apart from the above, we would also like to state that-

1. Among the items discussed in the meeting held between the official side and the National Executives of the All India Civil Accounts Employees Association under your Chairpersonship on 6th November 2015, though favourable actions on some of the issues have been taken, but majority of the issues are yet to be settled which has generated strong resentment among the employees.

2. Endeavour on the part of the office of the Controller General of Accounts to operate a transfer policy for AAOs and local rotational transfer policies for AAO and Accountant/ Senior Accountant transparently were no doubt tremendously appreciated by the employees. But, the employees are totally disappointed due to the fact that, while these policies have been totally diluted and vitiated on account of prejudiced and biased approaches of the heads of Civil Accounts Departments like PCCAs of MHA, CBEC, CBDT, CCA of Ministry of Urban Development and CA of Ministry of WR etc. and also for their unwanted interferences, the Controller General of Accounts is maintaining total indifference against all these and his office is not at all enforcing the policies effectively and uniformly.

Further, due to sustained and united movements of the Central Government Employees, the Government of India has constituted the Empowered Committee under the Chairpersonship of the Cabinet Secretary to Government of India for sorting out the grievances of the employees on the recommendations of 7 CPC. In terms of the directives of the Empowered Committee, the All India Civil Accounts Employees Association alone was asked by your office to make its submission on the 7th CPC related issues. The Association had accordingly submitted its proposals for improvements in recommendations and it was informally informed to the Association that the proposals have been forwarded to the appropriate higher authorities with proper recommendations. Though the Association offered it’s thanks to your office for the favourable action taken but unfortunately, the requests for (1) Providing a copy of the recommendations made and (2) Meeting the joint delegation of All India Civil Accounts Employees Association, All India Civil Accounts Employees Association Category II and All India Association of Pay and Accounts Officers (Civil) on the CPC related matters are yet to be responded by your office.

We hope your kind self would definitely agree with us that the employees are suffering without any fault of theirs and there are valid grounds for them to become restive. Therefore, the specific issues on which the resentment has been precipitated and in support of which issues the members of our Associations shall resort to a day’s protest Dharna on 6th May 2016 are attached herewith in the form of “CHARTER OF DEMANDS” for your kind perusal.

We on behalf the All India Civil Accounts Employees Associations and All India Civil Accounts Employees Association Category II earnestly request you to kindly intervene personally into the undesirable situation created so that grievances of the employees are resolved at the earliest and peace and tranquility prevail in the organization.

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully

MACP on Promotional Hierarchy – Associations Demand for Withdrawal of SLP from Supreme Court

Mr. SK. Mann President, National Head Quarters Confederation of Defence Recognised Associations (CDRA) has written a letter to the Prime Minister of India, regarding MACP on Promotional Hierarchy.
MACP on Promotional Hierarchy – 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.

Mr. SK. Mann President, National Head Quarters Confederation of Defence Recognised Associations (CDRA) has written  a letter to the Prime Minister of India, regarding MACP on Promotional Hierarchy.  here are the quotes :

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.

MACP scheme for Defence Service personnel – No marked change in 7th CPC Report

MACP scheme for Defence Service personnel – No marked change in 7th CPC Report

Assured Career Progression

The Services have sought four financial upgradations under MACP scheme at 6, 12, 18 and 24 years of service or on completion of six years of continuous service in same Grade Pay. It has been stated that 60 percent of the soldiers (i.e., Sepoys and Naiks) are deprived of the third financial upgradation on account of an early retirement.

 

Analysis and Recommendations : The Commission has considered the demand and notes that as it is the existing scheme of MACP for the Defence forces personnel, at 8, 16 and 24 years of service, is more beneficial than the one on the civilian side, which is spaced at 10, 20 and 30 years. The aspect of early retirement of the defence services personnel is therefore already factored in. Further, no revision in the MACP scheme is intended on the Civilian side.

Keeping these facts in view the Commission is unable to recommend any changes to the MACP scheme insofar as Defence Service personnel are concerned.

Sir

Sub: Regulation of MACPS in respect of serving Graduates Clerks selected through LDCE/GDCE.

 

The undersigned is directed to refer to NFIR’s letter No. IV/MACPS/09/Part.9, dated 07.07.2015 and to state that with the issue of Board’s cadre restructuring instructions dt. 18.06.1981, the provisions for filling up of vacancies in Sr.Clerks grade stands amended and as per the extant provisions 20% posts are to be filled by direct recruitment, 13 1/3% through LDCE from amongst in service graduate clerks in lower grade and 66 2/3% by way of promotion on seniority basis evidently, in terms of existing provisions 13 1/3% quota is not direct recruitment quota but promotional quota to be filled through LDCE from amongst in service graduate clerks in lower grade and para 174(4) of IREM Vol.I 1989 Edition indicated that position.  Thus the appointment against 13 1/3% quota from amongst Serving Graduate Clerks has to be treated as promotion in terms of point No. (ii) of Boards letter dt. 12.09.2012 (RBE No. 100/2012) for the purpose of MACP Scheme.

MACP scheme is a challenge for 7th pay commission

MACP scheme is a challenge for seventh pay commission

MACP scheme was introduced by sixth pay commission and there are lots of anomalies left in this scheme. This scheme is very beneficial for central government employees who are working in same grade pay for 10 years or more. But some anomalies are really worrisome for the central government employees and they expect seventh pay commission to remove those. Please go through this news paper report:-

MACP on Promotial Hierarchy – Organisational/Financial support to defend the SLP

MACP ON PROMOTIONAL HIERARCHY- ORGANISATIONAL/ FINANCIAL SUPPORT TO DEFEND THE SLP-REGARDING

The extended meeting of the Steering Committee of MACP on Promotional Hierarchy held on 15/11/2014 has decided to write letters to all Gazetted Non Gazetted Employees’ Federations/Associations of all Ministries, seeking organizational/financial support in defence of the SLP against granting of MACP on promotional hierarchy, filed by the Central Government.

But we could not reach several of the Staff Associations/Federations, face MACP problems due to non availability of proper contact address/e-mail id/telephone number.

A letter inviting all Officers/Staff Associations who are not in contact of this steering committee is given below: All Federations/Associations are requested to send their contact address/telephone number/e-mail id etc immediately so that their name may also be incorporated in the list of steering committee. All Associations/readers are requested to co-operate.

To,

The President/General Secretary,
All India Officers/Staff Associations affected with MACP

Sub:    Defeating the illogical and anti employee MACP scheme in the Supreme Court- seeking co operation of the all Federations/Associations-regarding.

Dear sir,

You are aware that various benches of the Central Administrative Tribunals and High courts pronounced verdicts in favour of financial upgradation under MACP Scheme on Promotional hierarchy on the petitions of Central Government Employees in various Departments. In the Principle Bench of CAT itself, more than half dozen cases have been decided in favour of granting financial upgradation under MACP Scheme on promotional hierarchy. But the Government of India has not implemented these orders citing one or other reasons. Moreover, Government has filed 4 SLPs against these verdicts in respect of the applicants, namely, Shri V Mohanan Nair of CAT Ernakulam, Shri Babu Ram, Smt Reeta Devi and Shri Dhirender Singh of CAT Chandigarh, at Supreme Court. Since the outcome of the SLP filed will affect all Central Government Employees, a steering committee consisting of representatives of Gazetted/Non Gazetted Staff of various Departments of Government of India was constituted on 25/09/2014. Thereafter two meetings of the steering committee were held on 27th September and 2nd October 2014 in which decision for intervening in the SLP filed in the Supreme Court was taken.

In order to expand the activities of the steering committee, an extended meeting of the committee was convened at Indra Prastha Bhawan, New Delhi on 15/11/2014 in which 55 persons representing 30 Associations of various Ministries participated. Moreover, around 10 Associations whose representatives who had not participated in the meeting have assured to abide the decision taken in the meeting, copy of the minutes is posted elsewhere in this web site.

While addressing the meeting Shri SK Vyas, Advisor, Confederation has suggested that MACP is a matter covering all Central Government Employees and as such it will be better if National JCM (Staff side)becomes an intervener of the case and the meeting has accepted the suggestion. Shri Vyas has further suggested that all the Unions/Associations including Unions in the Railways, Defense, Postal and Income tax, Audit & Accounts Association should be asked to give contribution to meet the legal and other expenses of the case. Accordingly, the meeting decided to send letters to all major Federations/Associations as well the Secretary JCM (Staff Side).

According to Supreme Court web site posting, the SLP of Shri Mohanan Nair is listed for hearing on 08th January 2015 and all the other three SLPs have been connected with this case. The extended meeting of the steering committee unanimously decided to engage lawyers to intervene in the SLP.The committee has decided to collect Rs. 15 lakhs to meet the immediate expenses in connection with intervention in the case etc. It was also decided to prepare a list of Federations/Associations from whom the contribution has to be collected.

In view of the above, this steering committee seeks your support both organizationally and financially to strengthen the united efforts to get a favourable verdict from the Supreme Court through legal means.

I, on behalf of the Steering Committee, request you to kindly extend your helping hand so that we may be able to defeat the illogical and anti employee MACP scheme in Supreme Court.
Please send a two line letter in confirmation of receipt of this letter.

Yours Sincerely

(TKR Pillai)

MACP on Hierarchy: DoPT’s clarification in view of Tribunal/Court Judgement through Railway Board

MACP on Hierarchy: DoPT’s clarification in view of Tribunal/Court Judgement through Railway Board

Railway Board has cited the DoP&T advice in the matter of grant of 3rd financial upgradation on promotion hierarchy under MACP Scheme on the reference made by AIRF:-

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS
(Railway Board)

No PC-V/2011/M/3/AIRF

New Delhi, dated 13.11.2014

The General Secretary
AIRF
4, State Entry Road,
New Delhi-110055

Sir,
Sub:- 3rd financial upgradation under MACP Scheme.

The undersigned is directed to refer to AlRF’s letter No.AlRF/MACP/2014 (302), dated 07.10.2014 and to state the matter has already been consulted with DoP&T, the nodal department of Govt. on MACPS, and they have advised as under:

As regards the Order dated 31.05.2011 in CA No. 1038/CH/2010 (Raj Pal vs UOI) of Hon’ble CAT, Chandigarh which was upheld by the High Court and Apex Court, it may be stated that the Apex Court has not considered the issue on merit. The said SLP was dismissed due to insufficient explanation to condone the delay in the filing of the SLP. As regards implementation of CAT Order dated 9.5.2012 in GA No. 141/2012, the administrative Department was advised for implementation for the petitioners only subject to outcome of Review Petition in view of Contempt case. It may also be stated that generally the judgments passed by Hon’ble Tribunals/Courts are applicable/implemented to the specific case, unless there is any direction for similar dispensation to be extended to similarly placed persons. Hence, the above Orders pronounced favoring the applicants by the Tribunal/Courts and implemented on attaining finality or due to contempt or due to any other reason may be taken as exceptions/aberration.
In the matter, DOP&T have advised to maintain status quo with regard to the provisions for grant of MACPS benefits. It may be clarified that financial upgradations under MACPS would continue to be granted in the successive grade pay in the hierarchy of recommended revised pay band and grade pay as given in Section 1, Part-a of the first Schedule of the Railway Services (Revised Pay), Rules, 2008 and not in the promotional hierarchy, where functional promotion are allowed in the same Grade Pay, MACP benefits would also be regulated in the Grade Pay only.

Since, DoP&T is the nodal department on MACP Scheme and financial upgradation under the Scheme are regulated as per instructions/clarifications issued by them from time to time. In view of the above, it is not feasible to deviate from the instructions issued by the nodal deptt. on the subject viz. DoP&T.

Yours faithfully,

Important Cat Judgement regarding MACP

Important Cat Judgement regarding MACP – Confederation News

IMPORTANT CAT JUDGEMENT

DECLINING REGULAR PROMOTION BEFORE THE DATE OF IMPLEMENTATION OF ACP OR MACP SCHEME SHOULD NOT BE A BAR FOR GRANTING ACP/MACP

Refusal to accept promotion, earlier to 09.08.1999 when the ACP scheme was promulgated, does not make an employee ineligible for grant of first financial benefits under ACP scheme when the scheme came into force only on 09.08.1999

Facts: The Applicant (who was appointed on 08.03.1980), while working as Radio Mechanic in India Meteorological Department refused his promotion due to family circumstances, when his promotion order was issued on 30.07.1998.

The Assured career Progression Scheme came into force on 09.08.1999. The Applicant having completed 12 years of service and stagnating in the same post of Radio Mechanic was rejected for the financial benefit of ACP on the ground that he refused his promotion when offered on 30.07.1998 earlier to the introduction of ACP scheme on 09.08.1999.

Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACP) was introduced for financial upgradation on 19.05.2009. As per this scheme, an employee will be entitled for three financial upgradation after completion of 10, 20 and 30 years of continuance of service. The Applicant became eligible for 1st ACP in 2000 and 2nd MACP in 2010. The grievance of the Applicant is that, he was denied 1st ACP and 2nd MACP. Hence he filed this OA challenging the Office Orders 10/11-12-2008 and 20-9-2010 whereby he was denied the financial upgradation.

The Respondents state that he refused promotion issued by Order dated 30.07.1998. In terms of DoP&T O. M. No. 35034/1/1997 Establishment (D) (Vol. IV), dated 18.07.2001, the Applicant cannot be said to stagnate in the same post. Hence the 1st ACP benefits was refused. The Applicant annexed the judgement of Bombay Bench of the Tribunal as appeared in Swamynews of July, 2008.

The Bombay Bench of the CAT held that “If an employee has refused the promotion before the enforcement of ACP Scheme, the facts would remain that he has actually not been given any financial upgradation which he could have been before regular promotion. He remains on the scale of pay still stagnated”. In view of this clarification, the clarification of Respondents cannot be accepted. Ernakulam Bench of CAT in OA No. 768 of 2005 considered condition No. 10 makes it amply clear that if an employee is accepting ACP benefit, he is deemed to have given unqualified acceptance for regular promotion on occurrence of vacancy subsequently”. That precludes factoring of past refusal while given ACP benefit.

In view of the above, refusals of promotion earlier to 9-8-1999, has no effect on the grant of financial benefit under ACP scheme. Hence, the clarification given no Doubt No. 38 by DoP&T cannot be accepted in this case as the Applicant herein refused promotion earlier to the coming of ACP Scheme. In that view, refusal of grant of 2nd financial upgradation under MACP scheme amount to punishing him for the second time. Hence, the eligibility of benefits under ACP scheme has to be recknoned on the actual date namely 9-8-1999. Hence declaining promotion earlier to 9-8-1999 is no reason to deny the first ACP introduced on 9-8-1999. Hence, a direction was given to Respondents to grant the Applicants benefits under the ACP scheme irrespective of the fact of their refusal of promotion earlier to 9-8-1999. Time given for implementation was 6 weeks.

In view of the above, same relief given by Bombay Bench is to be followed in this case also.

In the result, the impugned Order, dated 10/11-12-2008 and 20-9-2010 are set aside. The Respondents are directed to grant financial benefits under the ACP scheme to the Applicant in 12 weeks from the date of receipt of this order.

This the OA stands allowed.

(Shri. Ganesh Bhavrao Shrote v. Secretary, Ministry of Earth Sciences Mausam Bhavan, New Delhi, New Delhi, 8/2014, SwamynewS 98, (Bombay), date of judgement 5-8-2013)
