Annexure

[Reference :- Office Memorandum No.35034/3/2008-Estt.(D) dated 07.09.2010]

S.No Point of doubt Clarification
1 Whether the Pay Band would change in the hierarchy of Pay Bands & Grade Pay on grant of the benefits under MACPS? Yes. The upgradations under MACPS is to be granted in the immediate next higher grade pay in the hierarchy of recommended revised pay (band and grade pay as prescribed in the CCS, (RP) Rules, 2008.
2 Whether the benefits of MACPS would be allowed to the Government servants who have been later on inducted in the Organized Group “A” Service No. The benefits under MACPS is not applicable to Group ‘A’ officer of Organised Group ‘A’ Services, as the officer under Organized Group ‘A’ Services have already been allowed panty of two years on non-functional basis with the officers of Indian Administrative Service (IAS)
3 How will the benefits of ACP be granted if due between 01.01.2006 and 31.08.2008? The new MACPS has come into existence w.e.f. 01.09.2008. However, the pay structure has been changed w.e.f. 01.01.2006. Therefore the previous ACPS would be applicable in the new pay structure adopted w e f . 01.01.2006. Para 6.1 of Annexure-1 of MACPS is only for exercising option for coming over to the revised pay structure and not for grant of benefits under MACPS. The following illustrations would explain the position:

(A) In the case of isolated post:

Date of appointment in entry Grade in the pre-revised pay scale of Rs.4000-6000: 01.10.1982

1st ACP granted on 09.08.1999 : Rs.4500-7000 (pre-revised)

2nd ACP due on 01 10 2006 : Rs.5000-8000 (pre-revised) [revised PB-2 Grade Pay of Rs.4200]

3rd financial upgradation under the MACPS would be due on 01.10 2012 (on completion of 30 years of continuous regular service) in the immediate next higher grade pay in the hierarchy of recommended revised pay band and grade pay i.e. Grade Pay of Rs.4600 in PB-2.

(B) In the case of normal promotional hierarchy:

Date of appointment in entry Grade in the pre-revised pay scale of Rs.5500-9000: 01.10.1982

1st ACP granted on 09.08.1999 :Rs.6500-10500 (pre-revised)

2nd ACP due on 01.10.2006 (as per the existing hierarchy) :Rs.10000-15200 (pre-revised).

Therefore, 2nd ACP would be in PB-3 with Grade Pay of Rs.6600 (in terms of hierarchy available):

3rd financial upgradation under MACPS would be due on 01.10.2012 in the immediate next  higher grade pay in the hierarchy of recommended revised pay band and grade pay of Rs.7600.

4 Whether the benefits of MACPS would be granted from the date of entry grade or from the date of thew regular servlce/approved service counted under varlous service rules The benefits under MACPS would be available from the date of actual joining of the post in the entry grade
5 In a case where a person is appointed to an ex-cadre post in higher scale on deputation
followed by absorption. whether the period spent on deputatlon perlod would be counted as continuous servlce in the grade or not for the purpose of MACPS
(i) Where a person is appointed on direct recruitment/deputation basis from another post in the same grade, then past regular service as well as past promotions/ACP, in the earlier post, will be counted for computing regular service for the purpose of MACPS in the new hierarchy.

(ii) However, where a person iS appointed to an ex-cadre post in higher scale initially on deputation followed by absorption, while the service rendered in the earlier post, which was in a lower scale cannot be counted, there is no objection to the period spent initially on deputation in the ex-cadre post prior to absorption being counted towards regular service for the purposes of grant of financial upgradation under MACPS, as it is in the same Pay band/grade pay of the post.

6 Whether the pay scale/grade pay of substantive post would be taken into account for appointment/selection to a higher post on deputation basis or the pay scale/grade pay carrying by a Government servant on account financial upgradation(s) under ACP/MACP Scheme The pay scale/grade pay of substantive post would only be taken into account for deciding the eligibility for appointment/selection to a higher post on deputation basis.
7 In a case where 1st/2nd~ financial upgradations are postponed on account of the employees not found fit or due to departmental proceedings, etc. whether this would have consequential effect on the 2nd/3rd financial upgradation or not. Yes. If a financial upgradation has been deferred/postponed on account of the employee not found fit or due to departmental proceedings, etc.. the 2nd/3rd financial upgradations under MACPS would have consequential effect. (Para 18 of Annexure-1 of MACPS referred).
8 In a case where the Government servant have already earned three promotions and still stagnated in one grade for more than 10 years, whether he would be entitle for any further upgradation under MACPS No. Since the Government servant has already earned three promotions, he would not be entitled for any further financial upgradation under MACPS.
9 Whether the pre-revised pay scale of Rs.2750-4400 in respect of Group ‘D’ non matriculate employees, would also be taken as merged to grade pay of Rs.1800 for the purpose of MACPS in view of merger of pre-revised pay scales of Rs.2550-3200, Rs.2610-3540, Rs.2610-4000 and Rs.2650-4000, which have been upgraded and replaced by the revised pay structure of grade pay of Rs.1800 in the pay band PB-1. Yes
10 If a Govt Servant on deputation earns upgradation under MACPS in the parent cadre, whether he would be entitled for deputation (duty) allowance on the pay and emoluments granted under the MACPS or not? No. While eligibility of an employee for appointment against ex-cadre posts in terms of the provisions of the RRs of the ex-cadre post will continue to be determined with reference to the post/pay scale of the post held in the parent cadre on regular basis (and not with reference to the higher scale granted under ACPS/MACPS). such an officer, in the event of his selection, may be allowed to opt to draw the pay in the higher scale under ACP/MACP Scheme without deputation allowance during the period of deputation, if it is more beneficial than the normal entitlements under the existing general order regulating pay on appointment on deputation basis.
11 Since the pay scales of Group “D” employees have been merged and placed in the Grade Pay of Rs.1800, whether they are entitled for grant of increment @ 3% during pay fixation at every stage. Yes. On the analogy of point 22 of Annexure-1 of MACPS, the pay of such Group “D” employees who have been placed in the Grade Pay of Rs.1800 w.e.f. 01.01.2006 shall be fixed successively in the next three immediate higher grade pays in the hierarchy of revised paybands and grade pays allowing the benefit of 3% pay fixation at every stage.

    I have joined as LDC on 08.10.1984, I have given 1st financial up gradation in the year of 1998 i.e. implementation of ACP order. I have been promoted as UDC on 06.08.2008 i.e. after putting off 23 years 11 months service in the pre-revised pay scale of 4000-6000 . On 08.10.2008 i.e. completion of 24 years of regular service. I got my 2nd financial up gradation according to ACP scheme in the pre-revised pay scale of 5000-8000(revised pay scale Rs. 9300-34800 with grade pay of Rs. 4200/-) because till date there is no MACPs order issued.
    In our department the promotional avenues are so least that I am not hopeful for further promotion. Now with implementation of MACPs I will be given the grade pay of Rs. 2800/-on completion of 24 years regular service. Authorities are requested to kindly clarify the matter whether granted grade pay of 4200/ is correct as my case comes under past cases or revised the grade pay of Rs. 2800/-. If so, when will I get my next financial up gradation.

  30. manerkar says

    Sir
    My Date of joining is 09.03.1990. I got ACP-1 on 09.03.2012 & MACPS-1 on 01.09.2008. On two occasions in 2007 & 2008 I was offered promotion. Since I refused promotion on both occasions and total debarred is two years. On 25.05.2010 I was promoted. No fixation was given as it was given at the time of MACPS-1 only change of Grade pay was given.
    As per para-25 of MACPS “If a regular promotion has been offered but was refused by the employee before becoming entitled to financial upgradation, no fixation 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 consider 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”. In my case I was givenACP-1 & MACP-1 and subsequently I refused promotion. I wish to know that whether I am eligible of MACP-2 on 25.05.2012 i.e. deferred period of two years of debarment due to refusal. If not, then when I will become eligible of next MACPS.
