MACP Joint Committee Meeting - Decisions and Discussions


MACP Joint Committee Meeting

Decisions and Discussions on MACP Anomalies published by AIRF

The detailed report of discussions and decisions on various anomalies on the subject of MACP Scheme has been published by All India Railwaymen’s Federation (AIRF) on its official website today. The Joint Committee meeting was held on 27th July, 2012 as per scheduled in the last meeting of National Anomaly Committee. Shri.Umaromal Purobit (Secretary) Staff Side National Council / JCM and Shri.Shiva Gopal Mishra (General Secretary AIRF and Member of National Council / JCM) were participated in the meeting on behalf of AIRF. The feedback of the meeting is reproduced here…

3.1 Grant of MACP in the promotional hierarchy 
It was insisted by the AIRF that the Grade Pay of Rs.2000, which is not available in the AVC of the Technicians, Ministerial Staff, Commercial and other cadres of the Railways, should be abolished because it is affecting adversely lakhs of employees.

AIRF further insisted that the promotional hierarchy in the MACP should be given according to promotional hierarchy not in the hierarchy of grade pay. After prolonged discussions it was agreed that the option for individual employees will be examined, so that individual could opt ACP / MACP, whichever is beneficial to them.

3.2 Date of Effect of MACP Scheme 
On the persistent demands of AIRF, it has been agreed that the admissibility of giving effect w.e.f. 1.1.2006 will be examined.

3.3 Applicability of MACPS to Group ‘D’ employees who have been placed in the Grade Pay of Rs.180(PB-I) 
Clarificatory instructions have already been issued by the DoP&T vide their O.M.35034/03/2008-Estt.(D) dated 09.09.2012.

3.4 Counting of 50% of service rendered by Temporary Status Casual Labourers for reckoning the 10/20/30 years of service under MACPS 
AIRF demanded that instead of counting 50% of service rendered by the Temporary Status Casual Labourers, 100% should be reckoned for 10, 20 and 30 years MACPS. As we have also demanded earlier in the meeting of the NC/JCM, it was agreed to examine it separately.

3.5 Grant of financial upgradation under old ACP Scheme between 1.1.2006 and 31.8.2008 
This is issue of non-implementation and will be pursued for the implementation.

3.6 Treatment of employees selected under LDCE/GDCE Scheme 
AIRF pointed out that the employees promoted under LDCE/GDCE Scheme have been considered in the ACP Scheme. It was agreed that, if they have been considered under the ACP, there is no reason not to allow them MACP and, therefore, they will also be considered under MACPS.

3.7 Promotion in the identical Grade Pay 
It was stated by the Official Side that, in many cases one increment has been granted. The issue of Loco Pilots will be resolved within a fortnight.

3.8 Financial upgradation under MACPS in the cases of staff who join another unit/organization on request 
Orders for giving them full benefit of financial upgradation have already been issued vide DoP&T’s O.M. dated 1st November, 2010.

On the demand of AIRF, it was agreed to issue a Clarificatory Note that even the employees joined on reversion, their past period will also be counted for 10, 20 and 30 years MACP benefit.

3.9 Extension of benefit of MACP to an employee appointed in grade where direct recruitment element is there by ignoring service and promotions rendered prior to his appointment in that post 
Clarification has been issued by the DoP&T vide their O.M. dated 09.09.2010.

3.10 Counting of services rendered prior to re-appointment for the purpose of MACP 
Has already been agreed. Treating that as technical re-designation, past service shall be counted for the purpose of MACP benefits.

3.11 Accounting of services rendered before Removal/Dismissal from service and subsequent reinstatement in service for the purpose of MACP Scheme 
Are covered under the Provision of CCS(CCA) Rules, 1965.

3.12 Counting of service rendered in State Govt/PSUs etc
Not agreed.

3.13 Regulation of Probation/Training Period under MACPS 
Where training/probation period is counted for promotion, the period will also be counted for MACPS.

3.14 Application of MACPS to the surplus staff re-deployed to lower posts in other Cadres/Organizations 
Regular service rendered by the surplus staff in previous organization shall be counted towards regular service in the new organization for the purpose of MACP benefits.

3.15 Stepping-up of pay of Senior incumbents at par with Junior incumbents as a consequence of ACP/MACPS 
While raising this issue, AIRF stated that, on the Indian Railways, in the Accounts Department seniors are drawing less pay than the juniors, particularly those who have cleared Appendix examination.

On the insistence of AIRF, EDPC-I, Railway Board, who was present in the meeting, explained the issue. The JS(P) as well as JS(Estt.) agreed with the views of AIRF and asked the Ministry of Railways to immediately send a reference, and agreed that this will be considered positively.

3.16 Benchmark for MACP should be liberal than the Benchmark for cadre promotion 
Clarificatory orders will be issued.
The issue of benefit of promotion to those who got one promotion prior to 01.09.2008 and completed 20 years service and are being denied third promotion under MACPS was also discussed. The Official Side agreed to examine the matter.

The issue of modification of recruitment rules, particularly in the Railways and upgradation granted by abolition of pay scale – Implementation of MACPS was also raised. The Staff Sided demanded that looking abolition of pay scales, MACPS benefits should be extended to the employees. The Official Side agreed to collect necessary details from the Ministry of Railways.

Before sending an appropriate proposal to DoP&T, Railway Board will have a discussion with the Staff Side on this issue.

The Staff Side also insisted that the "Placement" should not be treated as "Promotion" for the purpose of granting financial upgradation under MACP Scheme. The Official Side has agreed to examine the matter.

I understand that MACP is a relief for those who are not getting promotion to next cadre. But MACP with date 1.9.08 is curse on senior UDCs. If I get promotion to the next hierarchy, I will get a Pay under PB-2 with G.P.4200/- But MACP granted me a pay under PB-1 with G.P.2800/- after completion of 25 years. Even the newly promoted UDC are getting this PB with GP 2400/-, senior UDC with 3029 years service are getting same PB with a difference in G P Rs.400/-. Everybody turned a deaf year to our issue on introduction of MACP with a cut off date 1.9.08. We are suffering a lot. Those who joined even a day before are getting GP 4200/-. Committee may kindly look into the issue seriously and settle this anomaly. Neither getting promotions nor getting monitory benefits like others with same status, Committee can understand our feelings. Expecting a favourable decision .

WE SHOULD NOT EXPECT MUCH MORE FROM THESE ANOMALY COMM.THIESE ARE SPECIALLY GUIDED BY POWER, NOT BY JUSTICE. EITHER OFFICERS (GR-A) OR THE INDUSTRIAL WORKERS ARE WORKING IN INDIA. WE DO NOT WORK(GR-B, CLERKS) AT ALL. SO WER HAVE NO RIGHT TO GET ANY ADVANTAGE LIKE OTHERS. AFTER PAY COMM. (6TH), NO PAYMENT AS SUCH HAS BEEN DONE ONLY FOR US. WE GOT ANYTHING ALONG OTHERS, NOT SINGLY. THIS IS THE FAILURE OF TOTAL SYSTEM. PAYMENT IN TOTAL SHOULD BE AT PER WITH RANK- HIGHER RANK SHOULD GET HIGHER PAYMENT, LOWER RANK SHOULD GET LOWER.OTHERWISE PROBLEM WILLARISE. WHAT ELSE WHEN SOMEONE(JWM) PASSING UPSC NAMED JWM GOT MUCH LESS PAYMENT THAN HIS/HER 3-4 STEP DOWN SUBORDINATE? HE SHOULD BE MAD.IT IS THE CASE IN OFB. BESIDES, NOT ALL THE SAME CATEGORIED CADRES PLACED IN DIFFERENT SECTORS TREATED NOT IN A SAME WAY IN PAY COMM. SCHOOL, HOSPITAL ARE AMONG GAINERS. RAILWAYS, OFB ARE LOOSER. EVEN A PETTY CADRE IN HOSPITAL OR SCHOOL GETTING MUCH HIGHER PAYMENT THAN AWM (GR-A), JWM, C(GR-B), M(GR-B. IT LOOKS ODD. PLS STOP POLITICS AND ONE-EYEDNESS. TREAT IN JUSTICE. I REQUEST TO ALL BIG HEADS.

For the employees who joined in the grade pay of Rs.4200 gets 1st MACP in the grade pay Rs.4600=00, 2nd MACP in the grade pay of Rs.4800=00 and 3rd MACP in the grade pay of Rs.5400=00.
If we compare with the employees of direct recruits in the grade pay of Rs.5400 they get jump to Rs.6600, Rs.7600 and Rs.8700 in 1st, 2nd and 3rd ACP.
do something for this?


This is a very clear example of delaying tactics and high handedness of bureaucrats. They understand the issue very well and killing the time till next pay commission. They know very well that if they give clear decision "NO" the staff will approach court against the injustice done. IT IS ILLEGAL AGAINST NATURAL LAW TO DEPRIVE BENEFITS TO CERTAIN STAFF WHICH HAVE BEEN ALREADY AVAILED BY THE SOME. There are no complications in the issue and an officer having little common sense can give decision, no more in depth study is required. By delaying the decision the Govt side is doing a sin like “giving water to a dead person instead when he was alive”. It is known to everybody that the people at the bottom of pyramid is bearing all the burden and struggle to keep shape of pyramid and people sitting at the top are enjoying. The people at the bottom of pyramid are cleaning the dirty laundry of people at top. LET US PRAY TO ALMIGHTY TO OPEN THEIR EYES AND HAVE GOOD SENSE.
