Reference is invited to the Department of Personnel and Training(D0PT)'s Office Memorandum of even number dated the lgth May,2009 regarding the Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme(MACPS).

Consequent upon the implementation of Sixth Pay Commissions recommendations, the four pre-revised Group 'D' pay scales viz., Rs.2550- 3200, Rs.2610-3540, Rs.2610-4000 and Rs.2650-4000 have been upgraded and replaced by the revised pay structure of grade pay of Rs.1800 in the pay band PB-1.

As per the recommendations of Sixth CPC, Government.sewants in these four pre-revised Group 'D' scales have been granted the Group 'C' revised pay structure of grade pay of Rs.1800 in the pay band PB-1. It has been decided on the analogy of point-5 of Annexure-l of MACPS dated 19.05.2009 that promotions earned or upgradations granted under ACP Scheme of August,-1999 in the past to the four pay scales mentioned above, which now carry the grade pay of Rs.18001- shall be ignored for the purpose of MACPS. However, promotions/financial upgradations earned by existing Group 'D' employees to grade pay of Rs.1900 (pre-revised scale of Rs.3050-75-3590-80-4590) shall be counted for the purpose of MACPS.

agree with anonymous, please some body clarify, because it will be a double benefit for the pre-6th pay commission promotees and not a promotion for post 6th pay commission

It was a good move in consideration with the group D. But LDC's who has better qualification, job responsibilities more than group D are getting equal pay. LDCs are neglected

i have been appointed in grade 1200-2040 in accounts department in the year 1987. after three years iwas promoted to grade 1400-2600 in the year 1991. consequnet on passing depatment examination i was promoted to grade 1640-2900 in the year 1992.due to my domestic circumsatances i could not continue and got reversion to the grade 1400-2600. i was promoted to 1640-2900(5500-9000)in the year 1997. i was promoted to 2000-3200 in the year 2007 due to reclassification of vacancies which has become nullamd void since it is after 01-01-2006. the adminstration now considers my promtion to the same grade 1640-2900 as twice and denies macp. is it correct? i feel since macp is a financial upgradation scheme promotion to the same grade pay should counted only once in the entire carreer. please give the views

After getting MACP benefit my Basic Pay is 14460 and Grad Pay is 4600. My basic pay 14460 is just equivalent to 7250 in old basic pay before pay commission and as per which I am entitle for Ist class Pass. but here officials are not allowing/giving the 1st class benefit to me saying that regarding this they have not received any clear cut instruction from Railway Board, and as I have got salary increment benefit, due to ACP scheme, I can not be given 1st class pass. Am I not entitle for 1st class pass, if yes, please give me any railway board circular copy regarding this so that I can show them.

This MACP shcme has brought discrimation between the direct RRB recruits and deparmental recruits. Whereas RRB recuits juniors drawing more pay than their seniors in counter part in the same grade.

The difference is very huge and feel being humilated due to this scheme as juniors are drawing more pay then senior employee.

Due to this MACPS my juniors of GR Pay of 4600 get Gr Pay of 4800/- but I am still in Gr Pay 4600. Pay protection & no any other benifit given to seniors.We are loosing two ways 1. We are earlier in 7450-11500/ pay & juniors are in 6500-10500/- pay we are in 4600 Gr pay & juniors are in 4800/- Hence it requires revision

I have been appointed as TGT in 1979. Also a promotion offered to me in 2000 was rejected by me due to some financial reasons.
Now my question is am i eligible for MACP for second and third financial upgradation. My 20 years of service have already been completed in 1999 and 30 years in 2009 on basis of stagnation.
Kindly reply
