Subject: Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS) for the Central Government Civilian Employees – Implementation of the 7th CPC Recommendation Clarification regarding revised benchmark of “Very Good” of APAR grading.

Sir,

DoP&t vide OM No.35034/3/2015-Estt(D) dated 28.09.2016 had clarified that with effect from 25.07.2016. For grant of financial upgradation under the MACPS, the prescribed benchmark would be “Very Good” for all the posts.

2. The Board has been receiving a number of references from various field formations of CBEC, Associations and individuals on the subject mentioned above, seeking clarification whether the revised benchmark of “Very Good” (w.e.f 25.07.2016) may be applied to ACRs/APARs of 2015-16 and period prior to that, and whether the officers should be given opportunity to represent against the “Good” grading of past ACRs/APARs.

3. The matter has been examined in consultation with DoP&T .DoP&T has opined that there is no question of allowing second opportunity of representation against the APAR which are post 2009 as these are already disclosed to the employees in APAR process. DoP&T vide OM dated 28.09.2016 has implemented the recommendations of 7th CPC. accepted by the Government for enhancing the benchmark for grant of MACP to ‘Very Good’. These instructions are applicable w.e.f 25.07.2016, the date of issue of Government Resolution by D/o Expenditure. Therefore, in cases where the 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’.

Yours faithfully.

7th Pay Commission – Finmin: MACP on performance to be reconsidered ?

7th Pay Commission – Finmin: MACP on performance to be reconsidered ?

New Delhi: Good-performing Central government employees will now get MACP if their performance is not upto the mark of “very good”, the Finance Ministry officials told The Sen Times on condition of anonymity.

They has said the government will reconsider the benchmark for performance appraisal for promotion and financial upgradation, which was enhanced to “very good” from “good” level for central government employees under the the 7th Pay Commission recommendations.

The Modified Assured Career Progression (MACP) scheme continues to be administered at 10, 20 and 30 years of service as before, the officials said as it “accepted” the pay panel’s recommendations.

However “good” benchmark on ACR/APAR (Annual Confidential Report/Annual Performance Appraisal Report) of the employees and officers that will help them now get MACP, they added.

“The government had a wrong idea about MACP. Now, the concepts have become clear to the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley,” they confirmed.

The government implemented the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission from August 2016. The central government employees also got arrears from January 2016.

The pay panel had in its report said that performance benchmarks for MACP should be enhanced to “very good” from “good”.

The pay panel also proposed that annual increments not be granted in the case of those employees who are not able to meet the benchmark either for MACP or for a regular promotion in the first 20 years of their service.

The government accepted both proposals in June 2016 with basic salary hike but proposal increasing allowances has been accepted on June 28, 2017, which comes into effect from July 1, 2017 without arrears, which made resentment among the central government employees.

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.
