Of all the benefit announced in the V CPC to Central Government Employees announced of ACP reigns as the jewel in the crown.
For the employees who started their careers in the end year of 60’s and the starting of the 70’s, who were hopeless and fed up in their lives as there were no promotion for so many years this new scheme enlivened and enlightened them.
Having witnessed three pay commissions right from the date of their appointment without any benefit, the fed up employees were greatly enthralled by the economic upliftment in their lives by the ACP announced in the year of 1999. Though there was no up gradation in their grade (Post), they were fully contented with the rise in their basic pay-in their pay bills.
Having received Rs.3 to Rs.50 only as increment per year for the past 24 years and more, this two financial up gradation which came consequently by this new innovative scheme was a soothing balm to them.
There is no chance for the above situation to continue…!
Moreover in future there is no chance for receiving two ACP’s simultaneously…!
Other than those who have superannuated all other could have completed 30 years of service for them, there is chance of getting 3rd ACP in MACP Scheme.
