Sir,

     Sub: PNM/AIRF Item No. 12/2006- Assured Career Progression (ACP) Scheme for Railway servants - Clarification regarding procedure in respect of selection posts.

     Ref : Minutes of the meeting held with the Board on 21-22 December 2010.


            With reference to the above, the undersigned is directed to state that the matter has already been examined and it was advised earlier vide Board’s letter of even number dated 23-11-2009 that the earlier ACP Scheme (of October 1999) envisaged fulfillment of normal promotion norms such as bench mark, trade test, departmental exam, seniority-cum-fitness, etc., for grant of financial upgradation. However, the Modified ACP Scheme, which has superseded the earlier ACP Scheme and effective from 1.9.2008, prescribes that financial upgradation would be subject to fitness in the hierarchy of the Grade Pay with in the PB-1. Thereafter, the benchmark of ‘Good’ till the Grade Pay of Rs.6600 in PB-3 and the benchmark of ‘Very Good’ to the Grade Pay of Rs.7600 and above would be applicable for financial upgradation. As such, the MACPS criteria for upgradation are different from the ACP Scheme.


Further, vide Boards letter dated 28.12.2010 (RBE 188/2010), it has been clarified that where the financial upgradation under the MACPS also happens to be in the promotional grade and benchmark for promotion is lower than the benchmark for granting the benefits under MACPS, the benchmark for promotion shall apply to MACPS also


Yours faithfully,

ACP Scheme - Motormen of BCT Division – Clarification regarding

Sir,

Sub: ACP Scheme - Motormen of BCT Division

Ref: PNM/AIRF Item No.16/2008


With reference to the Minutes of the meeting held on 21-22 December 2010, the undersigned is directed to state that the details of the rankers & other documents furnished by Western Railway indicate that the concerned employees have earned more than two promotions before being appointed as Motorman. Western Railway have also mentioned that the post of Motorman is filled by holding selection from the working Loco Pilots (Passenger & Goods) and only the remaining untitled posts of Motorman are filled through RRB. This clearly implies that the basic mode for filling the post of Motorman is through promotion by selection from amongst the eligible departmental candidates. Direct recruitment (through RRB) is only resorted to for filling unfilled vacancies.


Further, as per the extant instructions, an appointment to a post is treated as direct recruitment, only when the Recruitment Rules of that post provide that such posts be filled by direct recruitment only. However, if the Recruitment Rules of a post prescribe a promotion quota to be filled on the basis of LDCE (i.e. selection), such appointments will be treated as promotion for the purpose of ACPS. Therefore, only those railway employees who have been appointed as Motorman as per terms and condition as well as procedure applicable for direct recruitment can be granted the benefit of ACP. It is further submitted that the issue of grant of financial upgradation under ACP Scheme in respect of Motorman belonging to ranker’s stream is pending adjudication before Hon’ble Supreme Court in context of the case of R. M. Deshpande & Ors.


In view of the above, the demand to grant financial upgradation to all rankers (or left over cases) is not tenable as the same is contrary to the policy instructions on the subject.


Yours faithfully,
