In this connection, attention is invited to’ Para 1 and 9 of Annexure of DOP&T OM No.3534/3/2008-Estt.(D) dated 19th May 2009, which stipulates that
“…..
1) There shall be three financial upgradations under the MACPS, counted from the direct entry grade on completion off 10, 20 and 30 years service respectively. Financial upgradation under this scheme will be admissible Whenever a person has spent 10 years continuously in the same grade pay.

9) Regular service for the purpose of the MACPS shall commence from the date of joining of a post in direct entry grade on a regular basis either on direct recruitment basis or on absorption/re-employment basis. Service rendered on adhoc/contract basis before regular appointment on pre-appointment training shall not be taken into reckoning. However, past continuous regular service in another Government Department in a post carrying same grade pay prior to regular appointment in a new Department, without a break shall also be counted towards qualifying regular service for the purpose of MACPs only( and not for the regular promotions). However, benefits under the MACPS in such cases shall be considered till the satisfactory completion of the probation period.
…”

Further, it is also intimated that the matter was referred to DoPT, for treating AAO as fresh recruits after passing of SAS Part II Exams and it has been clarified by DOP&T that Departmental Examination is one of the fast track mode of promotion and the appointment on the base of Limited Departmental Examination cannot be treated as direct recruitment and the orders of C & AG dated 20.06.2016 is not consistent with the instructions of the Government. Further, DoPT has opined that treating AAO as a fresh recruits for the purpose of benefit of MACP will be violative of the provisions of RR.

Accordingly, the representations received in this regard may be replied at your end.

AIRF: 7th CPC Allowance Brief of the meeting held today with the Cabinet Secretary

AIRF: 7th CPC Allowance Brief of the meeting held today with the Cabinet Secretary

AIRF

 

No.AIRF/405(VII CPC)(Allowances)

Dated: June 15, 2017

The General Secretaries,
All Affiliated Unions,

 

Dear Comrades!
Sub: Brief of the meeting held today with the Cabinet Secretary

Today I met the Cabinet Secretary, Government of India, and shown our anguish regarding non-settlement of demands of the Central Government Employees, particularly non-approval of the allowances by the Cabinet.

The Cabinet Secretary assured that, all the things are in the process and most probably would be placed in the next Cabinet meeting.

Normally, Union Cabinet meets on every Wednesday, but this time 21st June, 2017 being “Yoga Day”, this may defer for one or two days, so according to the assurance given by the Cabinet Secretary, we hope that the matter of the allowances would be settled within this month.

We have also come to know from the reliable sources that the Committee on National Pension System(NPS) has also submitted its report and some serious discussion is on for its implementation.

The Cabinet Secretary also assured that he has discussed the issue of “Very Good” benchmark with the CRB as well as Secretary(DoP&T), where he has advised them that the benchmark should be the same as prevalent in the case of promotion; the same should be for MACP also.

This is for your information.

Yours faithfully,
sd/-

Recommendations of 7th CPC on benchmark for the purpose of MACPS – Clarification

Recommendations of 7th CPC on benchmark for the purpose of MACPS: AIRF writes to Railway Board on clarification

A.I.R.F.
All India Railwaymen’s Federation

D.O. No.AIRF/MACPS

Dated : 22.05.2017

Sub: Recommendations of 7th CPC on benchmark for the purpose of MACPS – Clarification reg.

Ref.: Railway Board’s letter No.PC-V/2016/MACPS/1 dated 19.05.2017

This issue has been discussed with you on several occasions individually as well as jointly, where I mentioned that, the Cabinet Secretary has agreed to us that, the Railways being working under different working conditions, and for operation of the trains, a flow process system is in vogue, that is the reason, in the selections for various posts and categories; benchmarking system had been introduced after VI CPC when DoP&T issued instructions that, financial upgradation under MACPS should be based on “Very Good” benchmark. Even DoP&T agreed that the same benchmark should be used for MACPS which is in vogue for selection in case of the Railway employees.

Now, it is a matter of utter surprise that, on the reference as well as reply from the DoP&T, the Railways had issued instructions for “Very Good” benchmark for financial upgradation under MACPS. This issue is very sensitive and will definitely create lots of agitations because, in the MACPS benchmark of “Very Good” will be considered for consecutive three years. In most of the cases employees will be deprived of from MACPS. Since Railways are working in a flow process system, wherein, instead of individual contribution, joint contribution of the employees has their weightage.

We sincerely hope that, you will kindly intervene in the matter and as has been advised by the Cabinet Secretary, the same benchmark, which is prevalent for selection should be in vogue in case of MACPS also.

With Kind regards!

Yours sincerely,
Sd/-,

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

GOVERNMENT of INDIA
MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS
(Railway Board)

No. PC-V/M/4/NFIR/pt

New Delhi,
dated :19.05.2017

The General Secretary,
NFIR,
3, Chelmsford Road, New Delhi-55

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:- Recommendations of 7th CPC on benchmark for the purpose of MACPS – clarification reg.

The undersigned is directed to refer to NFIR’s letter No.IV/MACPS/09/Part 10, dt. 23.01.2017 and AIRF’s letter No.AIRF/MACPS (848), dt. 17.03.2017 on the above subject.The matter has been consulted with DoPT, the nodal department of Govt. on the subject and DoPT have stated that 7th CPC in para 5.1.45 of its report recommended that the benchmark, in the interest of improving performance level, be enhanced from ‘Good’ to ‘Very Good’. In addition, introduction of more stringent criteria such as clearing of departmental examinations or mandatory training before grant of MACP can also be considered by the Government. This recommendation of the Pay Commission has been accepted by the Cabinet. Hence, withdrawal of DoPT’s OM dt. 28.09.2016 is not feasible.

As DoPT is nodal department of Govt. for the purpose of MACPS, this Ministry is not in position to deviate from the instructions issued by them.

Yours faithfully,

Dated: 04/05/2017

The General Secretaries of
Affiliated Unions of NFIR

Brother,

Sub: Issues discussed in the Standing Committee Meeting of NC/JCM held at Room No. 119, North Block, New Delhi on 3rd May 2017-reg.

The Standing Committee Meeting of the NC/JCM held at Room No. 119, North Block, New Delhi on 3rd May 2017 under the chairmanship Secretary (Personnel), Government of India. S/Shri M. Raghavaiah , Leader JCM (Staff Side) and NFIR General Secretary, President NFIR Guman Singh, Working President R.P. Bhatnagar and Vice President K.S. Murty have participated in the meeting while representatives of other Federations/Associations have also taken part in the meeting.

2 Important points deliberated in the meeting:-

  • In the opening address, the Leader JCM (Staff Side) has conveyed to the Secretary (Personnel), the serious disappointment and unhappiness among Central Government employees over breach of commitment on the part of Government on major issues. He cited the assurance given by the Senior Ministers on 30th June 2016 on the demand for revision of minimum wage, multiplying factor and official statement issued by the Ministry of Finance on 06th July 2016 for constituting High Level Committee to examine these issues for placing before the Cabinet. Unfortunately, only one meeting was held by the Additional Secretary (Expenditure) and thereafter nothing is known on these vital demands even after lapse of about 10 months. The Leader JCM (Staff Side) also expressed unhappiness over lack of transparency on several issues discussed, consequently the JCM (Staff Side) is kept in dark. He pointed out that the 7th CPC recommendation for revision of pension to the retired employees and said that although the JCM (Staff Side) is the major stake holder and held discussions, the contents of the report of the Committee are not made available to us. This reveals that the Government does not bother to share the information with JCM (Staff Side), he pointed out.
  • On Allowances, he said that though discussions with the Staff Side JCM, the views of the Committee headed by Finance Secretary are not shared with the JCM (Staff Side). Apart from this, the decision on Allowances has been procrastinated for several months leading staff He further said that it is not known whether the Government will be modifying the recommendations of 7th CPC on Allowances on the basis of justification given by the JCM (Staff Side) as the report of the Committee though finally submitted, the proposals are not known to JCM (Staff Side). He urged upon the Chairman of the meeting to convey JCM (Staff Side) demand that Allowances should be given effect from Olst January 2016.

3.On other issues, the Leader JCM (Staff Side) pointed out were as follows:-

  • 29% hike in the wages of Running Staff in Railways has not been ensured inspite of Resolution of Finance Ministry, Government of India. He said that the Railway Ministry’s proposal is pending with Ministry of Finance.
  • The references made by different ministries to the DoP&T/MoF as a result of discussions by the JCM constituents are pending with the Government without finality.

4. Conclusion:

  • The Leader JCM (Staff Side) requested the Chairman of the meeting to convey unhappiness of the JCM (Staff Side) to the Government and also take initiatives on the points highlighted above, mainly minimum wage, multiplying factor, pension parity etc.
  • The action taken statement on pending items have be reviewed in the meeting. The draft minutes are expected to be received soon from DoPT finalization of the minutes, same will be circulated.
  • The Railway related demands mainly counting of temporary status service of casual labour in full for the purpose of retirement benefits was discussed in the meeting. It was assured to consider after further consultations with the Ministry of Railways.
  • MACPS issues were discussed but however there is no finality.
  • Re-fixation of pay of re-employed Defence Forces Personnel in the Central Government (POBRs) – under examination [ATS – S No. 26/Item No. 6(XIV)].

    So far as Standing Committee agenda items are concerned, special meeting will be convened by DoP&T for discussion.

The above is for information of the affiliates.

7th Central Pay Commission retains rate of annual increment at 3%

7th Central Pay Commission retains rate of annual increment at 3%

7thpaycommission-breaking-news

The 7th Central Pay Commission has retained the rate of annual increment at 3 per cent. The 7th CPC has also recommended withholding of annual increments in the case of those employees who are not able to meet the benchmark either for MACP or a regular promotion within the first 20 years of their service.

The 7th Central Pay Commission has retained the rate of annual increment at 3 per cent. The 7th CPC has also recommended withholding of annual increments in the case of those employees who are not able to meet the benchmark either for MACP or a regular promotion within the first 20 years of their service. These recommendations have been accepted by the government.

The 7th CPC has observed that it is essential to have a linkage between Departmental Results Framework Documents (RFD) and Annual Appraisal Performance Report (APAR), and has suggested the following modifications in the existing APAR system for determining Performance Related Pay:

(i) Alignment of Objectives: The Ministry’s Vision/Mission needs to be translated into a set of strategic objectives for each department and these objectives need to be cascaded by the Department Head to his subordinates and subsequently down the chain.
(ii) Prioritizing Objectives, Assigning Success Indicators and their Weights: Objectives reflected in the APAR should be prioritized and assigned weights along with success indictors or Key Performance Indicators. The Commission recommended 60 percent weight on work output and 40 percent weight on personal attributes, instead of the existing 60 percent weight on personal attributes and only 40 percent weight to work output.

(iii) No Ex-ante Agreement: The indicators in the APAR of an officer/staff will need to be discussed and set with the supervisor at the beginning of the year.

(iv) Timelines: The timelines for RFD may be synchronized with the preparation of the APAR so that the targets set under RFD get reflected in individual APARs in a seamless manner.

(v) Online APAR System: The Commission recommended introduction of online APARs system for all Central Government officers/employees.

This was stated by Arjun Ram Meghwal, Minister of State in the Ministry of Finance, in a written reply to a question in Lok Sabha today.

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
National Federation of Indian Railwaymen
3, CHELMSFORD ROAD, NEW DELHI – 110 055

Affiliated to :
Indian National Trade Union Congress (INTUC)
International Transport Workers Federation (ITF)

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)

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.

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.

10-10-2016

To

Shri.R.K.Chathurvedi,
Joint Secretary to Govt. of India,
Ministry of Finance,
Department of Expenditure
(Implementation Cell),
Room No.124, The Ashok, North Block,
New Delhi 110 001.

Sir,

Sub: Exercising option for pay fixation in the revised 7th CPC Pay Structure, from the date of promotion or from the date of next increment from 01.01.2017  C/o.Officials who are due for promotion/upgradation from Grade Pay 2800 to 4200 during the period from 01.01.2016 to 01.07.2017 . Request clarification and permission to exercise revised option as a one-time measure.

1. As per Rule 5 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 the following provisions are notified by Government on 25.07.2016:

Rule 5 : Government servant may elect to continue to draw pay in the existing pay structure until the date on which he earns his next increment or any subsequent increment in the existing pay structure or until he vacates his post or ceases to draw pay in the existing pay structure.

Provided further that in cases where a Government servant has been placed in a higher grade pay or scale between 1st day of January 2016 and the date of notification of these rules (ie. 25.07.2016) on account of promotion or upgradation, the Government servant may elect to switch over to the revised pay structure from the date of such promotion or upgradation as the case may be.

2. As per the above two provisions, a Government servant may elect to continue to draw pay in the existing pay structure until he earns his next or any subsequent increment in the existing (pre-revised) pay structure which implies that in cases where there is no promotion/upgradation between 01.01.2016 to 30.06.2016 (or between 01-01-2016 to 30-06-2017 in the case of subsequent increment on 01-07-2017) option to opt from the date of next increment (01.07.2016) or subsequent increment (01.07.2017) is available, thereby forgoing the arrears from 01.01.2016 to 30-06-2016 (next increment) or upto the date of subsequent increment say, 01.07.2017.

3. Thus, in the case of promotion/upgradation of a Government Servant becoming due before the date of notification ie, 25.07.2016, he should elect to switch over to the revised pay structure from the date of such promotion/upgradation. He has no option to opt for the next increment (becoming due after the date of promotion/upgradation) for fixation of pay in the revised pay structure.

4. Subsequently a clarificatory order is issued by Department of Expenditure (Implementation Cell) on 29th September 2016, which clarified the position further. As per this clarification, in case an employee is promoted or upgraded to the higher pay structure (in the pre-revised pay structure) he may be permitted to exercise revised option to have his pay fixed under the Revised Pay Rules 2016 from the date of such promotion/upgradation or from the date of next increment as per FR-22(i)(a)(i).

5. Thus an official who got promotion/upgradation on 15.07.2016 (in the month of July 2016), can exercise option to fix his pay under Revised Pay Rules, 2016, either from the date of promotion or from the date of next increment ie; on 01.07.2017.

6. Even after issuing the above clarificatory orders, dated 29.09.2016, it is not clear, whether an employee who becomes eligible for promotion/financial upgradation on a date after the date of issue of notification, ie, 25-07-2016, but before the date of next increment ie. 01.07.2017, can exercise option now, for fixation of his Revised Pay as per CCS (RP) Rules, 2016, from the date of promotion or from the date of next increment, ie; 01.07.2017, by forgoing the arrears from 01-01-2016 to date of promotion or 30.06.2017, thus allowing him to draw his pay in the pre-revised pay structure of 6th CPC till the date of promotion or till the date of next increment on 01-07-2017. As per the existing orders, all those employees whose date of promotion/upgradation becomes due after 25.07.2016 should compulsorily opt for pay fixation from 01.01.2016 or 01-07-2016, whereas an employee whose promotion is due in July 2016 ie; before the date of notification (25.07.2016) can opt for next increment date on 01.07.2017 for fixation in the Revised Pay structure under FR-22(i)(a)(i). Since the benefit is extended to a section of employees who were promoted between 01-01-2016 and 25.07.2016 and the same benefit is denied to the rest of the employee who are promoted after 25.07.2016, this is a clear case of discrimination and denial of natural and equitable justice.

7. If the option as above is not allowed, thousands of employees who are due for promotion/financial upgradation from 2800 Grade Pay to 4200 Grade Pay (in the pre-revised pay structure) from a date after the date of notification ie. 25.07.2016, will suffer a recurring loss of Rs.2800 to 3000 per month, throughout their service.

The following illustrations will explain the above facts:

1st OPTION 7th CPC : OPTION FROM 01.01.2016
6th CPC 7th CPC
Basic as on 01.01.2016 16490 16490×2.57 = 42379. Next stage in the pay matrix level – 5 = 42800
Increment on 01.07.2016 42800×3%=1284, 42800+1284=44084. Next stage in the Pay matrix = 44100.
MACP-II promotion from 2800 GP to 4200 GP on 05.12.2016 (one increment fixation) 44100×3%=1323, 44100+1323=45423.
Next stage in the pay matrix level-6
= 46200.
2ND OPTION (IF ALLOWED) : OPTION FROM DATE OF SUBSEQUENT INCREMENT ie; 01.07.2017.
6th CPC 7th CPC fixation if option allowed from date of promotion or date of next increment on 01.07.2017
Basic as on 01.01.2016 16490
Increment on 01.07.2016 16990
MACP-II promotion from 2800GP to 4200 GP on 05-12-2016 (One increment fixation + Grade Pay difference) 16990×3% notional increment – 510.
Grade pay difference = 4200-2800 = 1400.
Total Basic = 16990+510+1400=18900.
18900×2.57-48573. Next stage in the pay matrix in level 6 = 49000.
(If option allowed from date of promotion)
Increment on 01.07.2017 18900×3% = 567
= 18900+567 = 19467
= 19470
19470×2.57 = 50038
Next stage in the pay matrix level 6 = 50500.
(If option allowed from
date of next increment).

Thus if no option is permissible after 25.07.2016 to fix the pay in the revised scale on the date of promotion ie. 5.12.2016, then by compulsory option from 01.01.2016, the pay will be fixed at 46200 on promotion. If option is permissible after the date of notification to fix the pay in the revised scale on the date of promotion, the pay will be fixed at 49000. The difference is Rs.2,800/-. If option for fixation on next increment on 01.07.2017 is granted, then the difference will increase further.

In view of the above, it is requested that the case may be reviewed judiciously and clarificatory orders may be issued, permitting the employees whose promotion date become due after the date of notification (25.07.2016) also, to exercise option for fixation of their revised pay from the date of promotion/upgradation or from the date of next increment ie. 01.07.2017, as a one time measure, thereby forgoing the entire arrears from 01.01.2016 to date of promotion or date of next increment on 01.07.2017. In other words, they may be permitted to draw their pay in the pre-revised 6th CPC pay structure till the date of promotion or till the date of next increment on 01.07.2017.

Awaiting favourable orders,

Yours faithfully,

M.Krishnan,
Secretary General,
&
Standing Committee Member,
JCM National Council (Staff side).

7th CPC on MACP: NFIR opposes the benchmark Very Good

Recommendation of 7th CPC on Modified Assured Career Progress Scheme : NFIR

NFIR
National Federation of Indian Railways
3, Chelmsford Road, New Delhi 110 055

PRESS RELEASE

“Reacting to the news item appearing in The Hindu of 04th October 2016 relating to the acceptance of the recommendation of 7th Central Pay Commission on Modified Assured Career Progress Scheme (MACPS) and the DoP&T OM dated 27th/28th September 2016, the General Secretary said that while the Government has wrongly accepted the recommendation, at the same time has been spreading wrong news through the media. He said that the Scheme has been existing since 1st September 2008 and is not a new scheme as claimed by the Government.

Dr.Raghavaiah further said that while accepting the 7th CPC recommendations relating to the MACP Scheme for Central Government employees, the Government has totally ignored the agreement reached with the JCM (Staff Side) on 17/07/2012 and 27/07/2012 in the Joint Committee and National Advisory Committee Meetings wherein agreement was reached to maintain the same benchmark as is applicable for filling the vacancies through promotion by selection/non-selection/fitness instead of insisting upon the benchmark ‘Very Good’ recommended by the 6th Central Pay Commission. Thereafter, the DoP&T vide OM dated 01st November 2010 and 04th October 2012 issued necessary instructions for granting MACP to the Central Government employees.

The Federation takes note that the Government while accepting the 7th CPC recommendations relating to financial upgradation under MACP Scheme to its employees has again taken U-turn and had once again fixed the benchmark Very Good arbitrarily for granting financial upgradation mainly to deny the legitimate benefit to its employees without any dialogue with JCM (Staff Side) the machinery setup to deal with the issues of Central Government employees which is totally unjustified.

The Federation strongly opposes the move of the Government for which communications have already been sent by the Federation twice to the Cabinet Secretary on 2nd August and 23rd August 2016 to respect the bilateral agreement reached with the JCM (Staff Side) and restore the decision given vide DoP&T OM dated 01/ll/20l0 and 04/10/2012 without making any change on the settled issue.

The General Secretary, NFIR hopes that the Government would consider the above points and rectify the mistake soon duly restoring the earlier instructions of DoP&T to honor the commitment made to the Staff Side.
