with 1 comment


About 12 lakh Tamil Nadu Government employees will receive a 30 per cent hike in wages with the government deciding to adopt the recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission.

The revised pay scales will be implemented with immediate effect and employees will get the revised pay next month, State Finance Secretary K Gnanadesikan told reporters here today.



The Government would incur additional expenditure of Rs 5,155.79 crore per annum due to the revised scales which will hike salaries of the employees by 30 per cent, he said.

"Currently Rs 14,000 crore has been incurred by government on salaries per annum while for pensioners it is at Rs 7,000 crore totalling a sum of Rs 21,000 crore. After the revised pay, it will be Rs 26,155.79 crore", he said.

Giving some salient features of the revision, he said, "emoluments like House Rent Allowance and City Compensatory Allowance will be doubled, while the same are granted for the first time to all employees on Special Time Scales of Pay including the noon meal workers".

As part of accepting the long pending request of employees, pensioners and family pensioners, the existing Medical Allowance has been revised from Rs 50 to Rs 100 per month.

Stating that ceiling limit of Death-cum-Retiring Gratuity has been enhanced from Rs 3.5 lakh to Rs 10 lakh on par with Central government, he said arrears in the pay revision after adjustment of interim arrears will be paid in three equal instalments. Daily allowance has also been doubled.

He said the implementation will be from January 2006, but monetary benefit would be given from Jan, 2007.

CHILDREN EDUCATION ALLOWANCE SCHEME – Need For a Clarification



We all know that the “Children Education Allowance Scheme” announced in the Sixth Central Pay Commission has got huge appreciation among the Central Government Employees.

Central government employees children should go to school, get good knowledge by joining good institutes – This has been the main aim of Central Government Children Education Allowance Scheme, has given good hopes in the minds of central government employees about their children’s education and future.

The employees who were unable to send their child to school as because they were working in under developed places or economically backward places and also those employees who found hard to give good education to their lads because of their economical state are sincerely thinking about their children’s studies through this scheme.

This is a welcome improvement. It is sure that in future this scheme will nurture many more talents.

Earlier before Sixth Pay Commission we were getting meagre amount for education as tuition fees. Now through Children Education Allowance provision has been made to recover a maximum of Rs.1,000 per month and an amount not more than Rs.12,000 per year.

This Children Education Allowance Scheme has been implemented from Sep-2006 and will be issued based on academic year that is from June to May.

In 2008-09, nine months that is from Sep-2008 to May-2009 are coming under this new scheme. For the remaining three months (June-2008 to Aug-2008) as per the old scheme tuition fees will be provided.

The central government organizations where education allowance is provided as one lump sum per year will get Rs.9120 for the current academic year (June-2008 to May-2009) and the remaining government organization employees will get it for every three months.

This Children Education Allowance will be provided to those who surrender their children’s original bills i.e. school fees, tuition fees and various other bills pertains to the education of children as per the government order.Office Memorandum, dated 2.9.2008) And for those who does not surrender their bills will not be provided with Children Education Allowance.

Allowances given for the benefit of employees remain equal for all and not variable for each individual. But based on Children Education Allowance rules, one person may get for his child an amount of Rs.1,000 per year and another get for his child an amount of Rs.12,000 per year. Moreover employees are having grievances based on the bills provided in the schools and various other bills related to this scheme.

For example children’s uniform cloth rate ranges from Rs.40 to Rs.400 per meter. Believing that whatever money spends for children’s education will be refunded, our employees are going for high quality products. When these bills are submitted management seems to have suspicious view and their argument takes place between management and employees. This variation in value starts from ordinary pencil, pen and compelled to submit bills on time in all the four quarters that is for every three months. This also leads to friction in between management and employees.

The maximum limit for Children Education Allowance has been fixed. But there is no sealing for each and every expense. This creates a doubt in the minds of employees that the differences in allowance will remain forever.

To remove such drawbacks in this good scheme, central government employees wishes that the central government should consider all the employees who provide a Bonafide Certificate from their children’s school should be provided with Rs 1,000 per month as Children Education Allowance.

KEY POIINTS OF MACPS (MODIFIED ASSURED CAREER PROGRESSION SCHEME)

with 6 comments


Some of key features of the new Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme for Central Government Civilian Employees w.e.f. 1.09.2008...

1. There shall be Three Financial upgradations under MACPS counted from the direct entry grade on completion of 10, 20 and 30 years respectively.

2. All cadres including Group A (excluding organized Gr.A services) are eligible for grant of MACP.

3. The scheme would be operational w.e.f. 01.09.2008. In other words, financial upgradations as per the provisions of the old ACP of August, 1999 would be granted till 31.08.08.

4. Financial up gradation will be in next higher grade pay in the hierarchy of Grade Pay and not in the promotional hierarchy.

5. A Screening Committee shall be constituted and follow a time schedule to meet twice in a financial year preferably in the month of January (April to September) and of July (October to March).

6. Financial upgradation under MACPS is purely personal to the employee and staff shall have no relevance to his seniority position. As such no stepping up of pay in the PB & GP would be admissible with regard to junior getting more pay than the senior on account of pay fixation under MACPS.

7. No past cases would be reopened. The differences in pay scales on account of grant of financial upgradations under old ACP and new MACP within the same cadre shall not be construed as anomaly.

8. The financial upgradation under the MACPS would be admissible up to the highest grade pay of 12,000 in PB-4.

9. The pay shall be raised by 3% of the total pay in the pay band and the grade pay drawn before such upgradation. There shall be no further fixation at the time of regular promotion if it is the same grade pay as granted under MACPS.

10. An employee who completes 10 years of service in a particular grade will qualify for grant of MACP. Service rendered in a lower grade will not be counted for grant of MACP after completion of total qualifying service of 10 years. For example if an employee gets regular promotion to the next grade after completion of 5 years of service in a particular grade, he will have to wait till the completion of 15 years of regular service for 2nd MACP. Likewise 3rd MACP for him will be given after completion of 25 years of regular service.

11. However, after 1st regular promotion or 1st MACP, completion of 10 years of regular service in a grade or total qualifying service of 20 years or 30 years whichever falls earlier will be the milestone for grant of next MACP.

12. The service rendered by the existing employees prior to implementation of the MACPS viz., prior to 1.9.2008, will also be taken in to account for calculating the 10, 20 and 30 year milestones for granting MACP.

13. Similarly, employees who were granted financial upgradation under previous ACP scheme i.e., prior to the introduction of MACPS with effect from 1.9.2008, will be eligible for financial upgradation under MACPS after completion of 20 years and 30years of service, irrespective of regular promotion given to them if any, between their 10 to 20 years of service or between 20 years and 30 years of service. For example if an employee was given 1st ACP under old ACP Scheme after completion of 12 years of service and a regular promotion after completion of 18 years of service, he will be eligible for 2nd MACP after completion of 20 years of service.

14. Promotions earned /upgrading granted under the ACP scheme in the past to those grades which now carry the same grade pay due to merger of pay scales /upgradations of posts recommended by the Sixth Pay Commission shall be ignored for the purpose of granting upgradation under MACPS.

15. Financial benefit an employee gets as a result of pay fixation during MACP will be 3% of basic pay (pay in pay band plus the grade pay before MACP) and the difference in Grade pay before MACP and grade pay after MACP.Option for fixation of pay is also available.

16. If an employee gets a regular promotion to a grade which carries same grade pay which he is receiving now after grant of MACP, no further pay fixation will be allowed at the time of said regular promotion. If an employee gets a regular promotion to a grade which carries higher grade pay than the grade pay he is receiving now after grant of MACP, no further pay fixation will be allowed on account of the fact that his pay would have been fixed at the time of grant of MACP itself. However, difference in the grade pay he is getting now and the next grade pay in the hierarchy will be allowed as monetary benefit at the time of promotion.

17. In the case of employees who have been either promoted or given ACP prior to 6CPC implementation from a grade to another grade, pay scales of which have been merged now after 6CPC implementation, the said promotion or ACP shall be ignored and those emplyees are to be considered for financial upgradations equivalent to the number of milestones they have completed viz., 10 years , 20 years and 30 years milestones as the case may be prescribed in the MACPS for financial upgradations.

18. In cases where ACP was granted as per previous ACP scheme, but whereas after 6CPC implementation the next higher post which the employee got through ACP has been upgraded with higher grade pay, the pay of such employees in the revised pay structure will be fixed with reference to the higher grade pay granted to the post. To illustrate, in the case of an employee, who was granted 1st ACP in old ACP scheme to the grade which carried the pre-revised scale of Rs.6500-10500 corresponding to the revised grade pay of Rs.4200 in the pay band PB-2, he would now be granted grade pay of Rs.4600 in the pay band PB-2 consequent upon upgradation of the post to the grade pay of Rs.4600 in PB-2. However, from the date of implementation of the MACPS viz., from 1.9.2008, all the financial upgradations under the Scheme should be done strictly in accordance with the hierarchy of grade pays in pay bands as notified.

19. Grade Pay of Rs.5400 in PB-2 and Grade pay of Rs.5400 in PB-3 are two different Grade Pay for the purpose of MACP.

20. Bench Mark (CCR/ACR Gradings) is “Good” up to GP 6600 thereafter is should be “Very Good”.

21. ‘Regular Service’ for the purpose of MACPS shall commence from the date of joining of a post in regular basis either on direct recruitment or on absorption /reemployment basis.

22. If financial upgradations will not be allowed under MACPS after 10years due to DAR proceedings, this would have consequential effect on the subsequent financial upgradations.

23. On grant of financial upgradations under MACPS, there shall be no change in designation, classification or higher status.

24. If a regular promotion has been denied by the employee before becoming entitlement of financial upgradation, no financial upgradation shall be allowed. However financial upgradation will be allowed due to stagnation and subsequently refuses the promotion.



We reproduce the full content of the Office Memorandum is given below for your informaion...

MODIFIED ASSURED CAREER PROGRESSION SCHEME (MACPS) FOR THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT CIVILIAN EMPLOYEES.

The Sixth Central Pay Commission in Para 6.1.15of its report, has recommended Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme(MACPS). As per the recommendations, financial upgradation will be available in the next higher grade pay whenever an employee has completed 12 years continuous service in the same grade. However, not more than two financial upgradations shall be given in the entire career, as was provided in the previous Scheme. The Scheme will also be available to all posts belonging to Group "A" whether isolated or not. However, organised Group "A" services will not be covered under the Scheme

2. The Government has considered the recommendations of the Sixth Central Pay Commission for introduction of a MACPS and has accepted the same with further modification to grant three financial upgradations under the MACPS at intervals of 10, 20 and 30 years of continuous regular service.

3. The Scheme would be known as "MODIFIEDASSURED CAREER PROGRESSION. SCHEME (MACPS) FOR THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT CIVILIAN EMPLOYEES. This Scheme is in supersession of previous ACP Scheme and clarifications issued there under and shall be applicable to all regularly appointed Group "A", "B", and "C" Central overnment Civilian Employees except officers of the Organised Group "A" Service. The status of Group "0" employees would cease on their completion of prescribed training, as recommended by the Sixth Central Pay Commission and would be treated as Group "C" employees. Casual employees, including those granted 'temporary status' and employees appointed in the Government only on adhoc or contract basis shall not qualify for benefits under the aforesaid Scheme. The details of the MACP Scheme and conditions for grant of the financial upgradation under the Scheme are given in Annexure-l.

4. An Screening Committee shall be constituted in each Department to consider the case for grant of financial upgradations under the MACP Scheme. The Screening Committee shall consist of a Chairperson and two members. The members of the Committee shall comprise officers holding posts which are at least one level above the grade in which the MACP is to be considered and not below the rank of Under Secretary equivalent in the Government. The Chairperson should generally be a grade above the members of the Committee.

5. The recommendations of the Screening Committee shall be placed before the Secretary in cases where the Committee is constituted in the Ministry/Department or before the Head of the organisation/competent authority in other cases for approval.

6. In order to prevent undue strain on the administrative machinery, the Screening Committee shall follow a time-schedule and meet twice in a financial year - preferably in the first week of January and first week of July of a year for advance processing of the cases maturing in that half. Accordingly, cases maturing during the first-half (April-September) of a particular financial year shall be taken up for consideration by the Screening Committee meeting in the first week of January. Similarly, the Screening Committee meeting in the first week of July of any financial year shall process the cases that would be maturing during the second-half (October-March) of the same financial year.

7. However, to make the MACP Scheme operational, the Cadre Controlling Authorities shall constitute the first Screening Committee within a month from the date of issue of these instructions to consider the cases maturing upto 30th June, 2009 for grant of benefits under the MACPS.

8. In so far as persons serving in The Indian Audit and Accounts Departments are concerned, these orders issue after consultation with the Comptroller and Auditor General of India.

9. Any interpretation/clarification of doubt as to the scope and meaning of the provisions of the MACP Scheme shall be given by the Department of Personnel and Training (Establishment-D). The scheme would be operational w.e.f. 01.09.2008. In other words, financial upgradations as per the provisions of the earlier ACP Scheme (of August, 1999) would be granted till 31.08.2008.

10. No stepping up of pay in the pay band or grade pay would be admissible with. regard to junior getting more pay than the senior on account of pay fixation under MACP Scheme.

11. It is clarified that no past cases would be re-opened. Further, while implementing the MACP Scheme, the differences in pay scales on account of grant of financial upgradation under the old ACP Scheme (of August 1999) and under the MACP Scheme within the same cadre shall not be construed as an anomaly. There shall be three financial upgradation s under the MACPS, counted from the direct entry grade on completion of 10, 20 and 30 years service respectively. Financial upgradation under the Scheme will be admissible whenever a person has spent 10 years continuously in the same grade-pay.

2. The MACPS envisages merely placement in the immediate next higher grade pay in the hierarchy of the recommended revised pay bands and grade pay as given in Section 1 , Part-A of the first schedule of the CCS (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008. Thus, the grade pay at the time of financial upgradation under the MACPS can, in certain cases where regular promotion is not between two successive grades, be different than what is available at the time of regular promotion. ln such cases, the higher grade pay attached to the next promotion post in the hierarchy of the concerned cadre/organisation will be given only at the time of regular promotion.

3. The financial upgradation s under the MACPS would be admissible up-to the highest grade pay of Rs. 12000/ in the PB-4.

4. Benefit of pay fixation available at the time of regular promotion shall also be allowed at the time of financial upgradation under the Scheme. Therefore, the pay shall be raised by 3% of the total pay in the pay band and the grade pay drawn before such upgradation. There shall, however, be no further fixation of pay at the time of regular promotion if it is in the same grade pay as granted under MACPS. However, at the time of actual promotion if it happens to be in a post carrying higher grade pay than what is available under MACPS, no pay fixation would be available and only difference of grade pay would be made available. To illustrate, in case a Government Servant joins as a direct recruit in the grade pay of Rs. 1900 in PB-l and he gets no promotion till completion of 10 years of service, he will be granted financial upgradation under MACPS in the next higher grade pay of Rs. 2000 and his pay will be fixed by granting him one increment plus the difference of grade pay (i.e. Rs. 100). After availing financial upgradation under MACPS, if the Government servant gets his regular promotion in the hierarchy of his cadre, which is to the grade of Rs. 2400, on regular promotion, he will only be granted the difference of grade pay between Rs. 2000 and Rs. 2400. No additional increment win be granted at this stage.

5. Promotions earned/upgradation~ granted under the ACP Scheme in the past to those grades which now carry the same grade pay due to merger of pay scales/upgradations of posts recommended by the Sixth Pay Commission shall be ignored for the purpose of granting upgradations under Modified ACPS. The pre-revised hierarchy (in ascending order) in a particular organization was as under:-

(a) A Government servant who was recruited in the hierarchy in the pre-revised pay scale Rs. 5000-8000 and who did not get a promotion even after 25 years of service prior to 1.1.2006,in his case as on 1.1.2006he would have got two financial upgradations under ACP to the next grades in the hierarchy of his organization, Le., to the pre-revised scales of Rs. 5500-9000 and Rs. 6500-10500.

(b) Another Government servant recruited in the same hierarchy in the pre-revised scale of Rs. 5000-8000 has also completed about 25 years of service, but he got two promotions to the next higher grades of Rs. 5500-9000 & Rs. 6500-10500 during this period.

ln the case of both (a) and (b) above, the promotions/financial upgradations granted under ACP to the pre-revised scales of Rs. 5500-9000 and Rs. 6500-10500 prior to 1.1.2006will be ignored on account of merger of the pre-revised scales of Rs. 5000-8000, Rs. 5500-9000 and Rs. 6500-10500 recommended by the Sixth cpe. As per CCS (RP) Rules, both of them will be granted grade pay of Rs. 4200 in the pay band PB-2. After the implementation of MACPS, two financial upgradations will be granted both in the case of (a) and (b) above to the next higher grade pays of Rs. 4600 and Rs. 4800 in the pay band PB-2.

6. ln the case of all the employees granted financial upgradations under ACPS till 01.01.2006, their revised pay will be fixed with reference to the pay scale granted to them under the ACPS.

6.1 ln the case of ACP upgradations granted between 01.01.2006 and 31.08.2008, the Government servant has the option under the CCS (RP) Rules, 2008 to have his pay fixed in the revised pay structure either (a) w.eJ. 01.01.2006 with reference to his pre-revised scale as on 01.01.2006; or (b) w.eJ. the date of his financial upgradation under ACP with reference to the pre-revised scale granted under ACP. ln case of option (b), he shall be entitled to draw his arrears of pay only from the date of his option i.e. the date of financial upgradation under ACP.

6.2 In cases where financial upgradation had been granted to Government servants in the next higher scale in the hierarchy of their cadre as per the provisions of the ACP Scheme of August, 1999, but whereas as a result of the implementation of Sixth CPC's recommendations, the next higher post in the hierarchy of the cadre has been upgraded by granting a higher grade pay, the pay of such employees in the revised pay structure will be fixed with reference to the higher grade pay granted to the post. To illustrate, in the case of Jr. Engineer in CPWD, who was granted ]"t ACP in his hierarchy to the grade of Asstt. Engineer in the pre-revised scale of Rs.6500-10500 corresponding to the revised grade pay of Rs.4200 in the pay band PB-

2, he win now be granted grade pay of Rs4600 in the pay band PB-2 consequent upon upgradation of the post of Asstt. Enggs. In CPWD by granting them the grade pay of Rs.4600 in PB-2 as a result of Sixth CPC's recommendation. However, from the date of implementation of the MACPS, all the financial upgradations under the Scheme should be done strictly in accordance with the hierarchy of grade pays in pay bands as notified vide CCS (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008.7. With regard to fixation of his pay on grant of promotion/ financial upgradation under MACP Scheme, a Government servant has an option under FR22 (1) (a) (1) to get his pay fixed in the higher post/ grade pay either from the date of his promotion/upgradation or from the date of his next increment viz. 1st July of the year. The pay and the date of increment would be fixed in accordance with clarification no.2 of Department of Expenditure's O.M. N0.1/1/2008-1Cdated 13.09.2008.

8. Promotions earned in the post carrying same grade pay in the promotional hierarchy as per Recruitment Rules shall be counted for the purpose of MACPS.

8.1 Consequent upon the implementation of Sixth CPC's recommendations, grade pay of Rs. 5400 is now in two pay bands viz., PB-2 and PB-3. The grade pay of Rs. 5400 in PB-2 and Rs.5400 in PB-3 shall be treated as separate grade pays for the purpose of grant of upgradations under MACP Scheme.

9. 'Regular service' for the purposes 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 purposes of MACPS only (and not for the regular promotions). However, benefits under the MACPS in such cases shall not be considered till the satisfactory completion of the probation period in the new post.

10. Past service rendered by a Government employee in a State Government/statutory body/Autonomous body/Public Sector organisation, before appointment in the Government shall not be counted towards Regular Service.

11. 'Regular service' shall include all periods spent on deputation/foreign service, study leave and all other kind of leave, duly sanctioned by the competent authority.

12. The MACPS shall also be applicable to work charged employees, if their service conditions are comparable with the staff' of regular establishment.

13. Existing time-bound promotion scheme, including in-situ promotion scheme, Staff' Car Driver Scheme or any other kind of promotion scheme existing for a particular category of employees in a Ministry / Department or its offices, may continue to be operational for the concerned category of employees if it is decided by the concerned administrative authorities to retain such Schemes, after necessary consultations or they may switch-over to the MACPS. However, these Schemes shall not run concurrently with the MACPS.

14. The MACPS is directly applicable only to Central Government Civilian employees. It will not get automatically extended to employees of Central Autonomous/Statutory Bodies under the administrative control of a Ministry/Department. Keeping in view the financial implications involved, a conscious decision in this regard shall have to be taken by the respective Governing Body/Board of Directors and the administrative Ministry concerned and where it is proposed to adopt the MACPS, prior concurrence of Ministry of Finance shall be obtained.15. lf a financial upgradations under the MACPS is deferred and not allowed after 10 years in a grade pay, due to the reason of the employees being unfit or due to departmental proceedings, etc., this would have consequential effect on the subsequent financial upgradation which would also get deferred to the extent of delay in grant of first financial upgradation.

16. On grant of financial upgradation under the Scheme, there shall be no change in the designation, classification or higher status. However, financial and certain other benefits which are linked to the pay drawn by an employee such as HBA, allotment of Government accommodation shall be permitted.

17. The financial upgradation would be on non-functional basis subject to fitness, in the hierarchy of grade pay within the PB-1.Thereafter for upgradation under the MACPS the benchmark of 'good' would be applicable till the grade pay of Rs. 6600/- in PB-3. The benchmark will be 'Very Good' for financial upgradation to the grade pay of Rs.7600 and above.

18. ln the matter of disciplinary/ penalty proceedings, grant of benefit under the MACPS shall be subject to rules governing normal promotion. Such cases shall, therefore, be regulated under the provisions of the CCS (CCA) Rules, 1965 and instructions issued hereunder.

19. The MACPS contemplates merely placement on personal basis in the immediate higher Grade pay /grant of financial benefits only and shall not amount to actual functional promotion of the employees concerned. Therefore, no reservation orders/roster shall apply to the MACPS, which shall extend its benefits uniformly to all eligible SC/ST employees also. However, the rules of reservation in promotion shall be ensured at the time of regular promotion. For this reason, it shall not be mandatory to associate members of SC/ST in the Screening Committee meant to consider cases for grant of financial upgradation under the Scheme.

20. Financial upgradation under the MACPS shall be purely personal to the employee and shall have no relevance to his seniority position. As such, there shall be no additional financial upgradation for the senior employees on the ground that the junior employee in the grade has got higher pay/grade pay under the MACPS.

21. Pay drawn in the pay band and the grade pay allowed under the MACPS shall be taken as the basis for determining the terminal benefits in respect of the retiring employee.

22. If Group "A" Government employee, who was not covered under the ACP Scheme has now become entitled to say third financial upgradation directly, having completed 30 year's regular service, his pay shall be fixed successively in next three immediate higher grade pays in the hierarchy of revised pay-bands and grade pays allowing the benefit of 3% pay fixation at every stage. Pay of persons becoming eligible for second financial upgradation may also be fixed accordingly.23. ln case an employee is declared surplus in his/her organisation and appointed in the same pay-scale or lower scale of pay in the new organization, the regular service rendered by him/her in the previous organisation shall be counted towards the regular service in his/her new organisation for the purpose of giving financial upgradation under the MACPS.

24. ln case of an employee after getting promotion/ACP seeks unilateral transfer on a lower post or lower scale, he will be entitled only for second and third financial upgradations on completion of 20/30 years of regular service under the MACPS, as the case may be, from the date of his initial appointment to the post in the new organization.

25. lf a regular promotion has been offered but was refused by the employee before becoming entitled to financial upgradation, no financial upgradation shall be allowed as such an employee has not been stagnated due to lack of opportunities. If, however, financial upgradation has been allowed due to stagnation and the employees subsequently refuse the promotion, it shall not be a ground to withdraw the financial upgradation. He shall, however, not be eligible to be considered for further financial upgradation till he agrees to be considered for promotion again and the second the next financial upgradation shall also be deferred to the extent of period of debarment due to the refusal.

26. Cases of persons holding higher posts purely on adhoc basis shall also be considered by the Screening Committee along with others. They may be allowed the benefit of financial upgradation on reversion to the lower post or if it is beneficial vis-a-vis the pay drawn on adhoc basis.

27. Employees on deputation need not revert to the parent Department for availing the benefit of financial upgradation under the MACPS. They may exercise a fresh option to draw the pay in the pay band and the grade pay of the post held by them or the pay plus grade pay admissible to them under the MACPS, whichever is beneficial. lf a Government servant (LDC) in PB-l in the Grade Pay of Rs.1900 gets his next regular promotion (UDC) in the PB-l in the Grade Pay of Rs.2400 on completion of 8 years of service and then continues in the same Grade Pay for further 10 years without any promotion then he would be eligible for 2nd financial upgradation under the MACPS in the PB-l in the Grade Pay of Rs.2800 after completion of 18 years (8+10 years).

(ii) In case he does not get any promotion thereafter, then he would get 3rd financial upgradation in the PB-II in Grade Pay of Rs.4200 on completion of further 10 years of service i.e. after 28 years (8+10+10).

(iii) However, if he gets 2nd promotion after 5 years of further service in the pay PB-ll in the Grade Pay of Rs.4200 (Astt. Grade/Grade "C") i.e. on completion of 23 years (8+1O+5years) then he would get 3rd financial upgradation after completion of 30 years i.e. 10 years after the 2nd ACP in the PB-II in the Grade Pay of Rs.4600.In the above scenario, the pay shall be raised by 3% of the total pay in the Pay Band and Grade Pay drawn before such upgradation. There shall, however, be no further fixation of pay at the time of regular promotion if it is in the same Grade Pay or in the higher Grade Pay. Only the difference of grade pay would be admissible at the time of promotions. If a Government servant (LDC) in PB-I in the Grade Pay of Rs.1900 is granted 1st financial upgradation under the MACPS on completion of 10 years of service in the PB-l in the Grade Pay of Rs.2000 and 5 years later he gets 1st regular promotion (UDC) in PB-I in the Grade Pay of Rs.2400, the 2nd financial upgradation under MACPS (in the next Grade Pay w.r.t. Grade Pay held by Government servant) will be granted on completion of 20 years of service in PB-I in the Grade Pay of Rs.2800. On completion of 30 years of service, he will get 3rd ACP in the Grade Pay of Rs.4200. However, if two promotions are earned before completion of 20 years, only 3rd financial upgradation would be admissible on completion of 10 years of service in Grade Pay from the date 2nd promotion or at 30th year of service, whichever is earlier. If a Government servant has been granted either two regular promotions or 2nd financial upgradation under the ACP Scheme of August, 1999 after completion of 24 years of regular service then only 3rd financial upgradation would be admissible to him under the MACPS on completion of 30 years of service provided that he has not earned third promotion in the hierarchy.

Government okays pension for all in paramilitary forces

with 4 comments

The Centre has accepted the long-standing demand of paramilitary forces to restore pension benefits to all jawans who have joined the ranks since 2004. With this decision, at least 20,000 personnel serving in CRPF, BSF, CISF, ITBP and SSB would benefit.

"I am pleased to announce that the government has accepted our demand of restoring the old pension scheme. Now, everyone in the forces will get the pension," Director General of Border Security Force M L Kumawat said at a function here. Government polices a few years back did not find those eligible who had joined the paramilitary forces after 2004 for pensionary benefits.

However, the three services of the Armed Forces were getting the benefits resulting in resentment in paramilitary forces.

The Sixth Pay Commission, however, endorsed such a pension scheme for the new recruits. Directors General of CPOs also wrote to the government saying such a step would discourage the youth from joining the forces and lead to demoralization.

MODIFIED ASSURED CAREER PROGRESSION SCHEME (MACPS) FOR THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT CIVILIAN EMPLOYEES

MODIFIED ASSURED CAREER PROGRESSION SCHEME

FINANCIAL UPGRADATION SCHEME FOR CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES

Latest MACP News

What is the Necessity for MACP to Emulate ACP’s Promotional Hierarchy? 

For a number of years, Federations have been demanding that employees who had not been given promotions for 10, 20 or 30 years be given promotions or upgradations by MACP (Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme) on the basis of their respective Promotional Hierarchy. The Government refused to oblige by stating very clearly in the 6th CPC that promotions will be given only on the basis of Grade Pay Hierarchy. 

There are no such recommendations in the ACP Scheme (Assured Career Progression Scheme), which was introduced by the 5th CPC. In fact, there was not even a Grade Pay format in its Pay Structure. There was also no usage of ‘Hierarchy’ in it. A lot of confusion was created after the introduction of the Grade Pay Structure by the 6th CPC. 

Two distinct hierarchies were created – Promotional Hierarchy and Grade Pay Hierarchy. 

Promotional Hierarchy is based on the pay structure depending upon the employee’s grade and department. Two employees with similar designations and ranks, but in different departments, will notice this difference. This is not applicable to everybody.

On the other hand, Grade Pay Structure is common for all. This is the reason why there are differences between an employee who gets promotions under the regular system and one who gets promotion under MACP. In order to rectify this discrepancy, a number of employees had approached the courts and had succeeded. 

This would become clearer with this example: 

Let us assume that an LDC employed with a Central Government office under a promotional hierarchy of 1900-2400-4200. Regular Promotion is given on this basis only. 

If the employee has not been given a promotion for 10 years, then, instead of the next Grade Pay of Rs. 2400, he will be given a grade pay hike of Rs. 2000. Instead of Rs. 4200 Grade Pay, he will be given Rs. 2800. This is the reason for all the confusion. 

But, the point to be observed here is that it was granted on the basis of Promotional Hierarchy, introduced by the ACP of the 5th CPC. 

Let us also look at the explanation given by the Government. 
Only those who haven’t received any promotion for 10 years are given promotions or upgradations under MACP.  Pay fixation is done based on 3% increment and the differences between Grade Pay. If the employee gets a regular promotion a month after getting pay fixation, then, the difference in the Grade Pay will be calculated on the basis of his entitlement and given immediately. The intention of the scheme was to remove the anguish of the employees who weren’t given any promotion for more than 10 years.

Supreme Court seeks response from Kerala government on creamy layer

with 0 Comment


The Supreme Court on Thursday sought response from the Kerala Government on its decision to raise the income ceiling for the 'creamy layer' among OBCs from Rs 2.5 lakh to Rs 4.5 lakh.

A bench headed by Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan issued notice to the state government on a petition filed by Kerala-based Nair Service Society challenging the notification in this regard. The Society said without determining the criteria, the state government raised the income ceiling giving reference of a similar decision taken by the Centre which has been challenged in the apex court.

It said it would have been appropriate for the Kerala Government to appoint an independent Commission for dwelling on the issue of the creamy layer.

The bench tagged the petition with another petition which in October last year had challenged the Centre's decision to raise the income ceiling for the creamy layer. Some of the anti-quota petitioners had alleged that the Union Cabinet's decision to raise the income was aimed at defeating the apex court.

It was submitted that the Cabinet's decision was arbitrary as the apex court on 23rd February, 2007 had set aside the report of a Commission from Kerala recommending raising upto Rs 3 lakh the upper limit of annual income for the creamy layer.

The court had set aside the report of Justice K K Narendran Commission appointed by the Kerala Government which was challenged by the Nair Service Society. The Narendran Commission was appointed by the state government after the Supreme Court had accepted the report of another Commission led by Justice K J Joseph which had recommended Rs 2.5 lakh annual income as the upper limit for the creamy layer.
