Most of the staff nurses and pharmacists working in CGHS under the ministry of health & family welfare have not been sanctioned MACP till date, though they are elligible to get it. Even some of them from September 2008 as per the OM No-35034/3/2008-Estt.(D) Dated 19th May,2009 for immediate implementation.This is purely harashment to those staff from the concerned department.Can any one suggest what to do in such circumstances.

Group D's are upgraded to Group C after Training. But in practical sphere there are many Group D friends who are either illiterate or disabled due old age deases viz. thrombosis etc. How they would perform their assigned job if they are given Group C status,with assingment of job pertaining to Group C post. By giving them MACP benefit they would be financially benefited no doubt, but government would get no benefit out of that. This would create a bad tendency amongst the other same level colleagues. So there should be specified job for those who are illiterate or partially disabled. Staff side please think for them.

I-(Vinod Kumar Mishra retired Office Sopdt.from Grey Iron Foundry, Jabalpur)- would like to submit as like- (1) ACP at first was given effect to, in 1999 (with effect from the year-1996), but I have not been given any benefit of ACP saying that when ACP was implemented in unit,I was under suspension. Here two points arise- (a) on the date when ACP was implemented I was not under suspension, and another- (b) even if under suspension/charge sheet issued, till charges not proved- no punishment is to be given effect to, but I unreasonably affixed one specific punishment by non-granting ACP with effect from the year 1996, while on the other hand, one employee under suspension is permitted to apply for improvement of his career and the concerned Management is bound to forward his application. Similarly, at the time grant of IInd MACP and special pay in the grade of UDC- GIF-Management again taken plea of continuity of punishment, and had not granted IInd MACP, while on the dates when these benefits were granted to other junior UDCs- I was already promoted to the post of Assistant, in which circumstances- GIF Manage-ment was completely wrong to take the plea of continuity of punish-ment.And major point is to be high lighted that- on recommendation of VTth CPC, the posts of Assistant and Office Supdt (both) are said to be merged with special PB. The related correspondence started from ministry of Finance and through ministry of sanction reached to Ordnance Factory Kolkata, where one officer became suspeceios or he taken one unwanted plea-"in the merging case of Chargeman-II and chargeman-I, no such special PB has been given" and this officer turn-down the sanction of President of India un-lawfully.
2- I raised timely objection against all these mal-practice or inactions but results are still in vain, due to which at present I have been with less pension amount at least 3-4 stages.
The Anomoly-Committee is requested to look into the matter seriously so that I, (being a disabled employee) would get justice to some extent, because it is forth major-point sanction of President of India in respect of reservation at the promotion-stage (since 12/1989) has also not been granted to the applicant, and this specific sanction is main reason of aforesaid malicious-actions against the applicant, please. Submitted with a hope for proper and justifiable decision in the matter.
