Key Features of Modified ACP Scheme

As you all know, the much awaited modified career progression scheme (MACPS) announced by the Government on 19.05.2009. Check out here to download the Office memorandum dated 19.05.2009 for MACPS

Needless to say, proper interpretation of a policy framework is very much vital to implement the same according to its intention.

We thought of highlighting the key features of this scheme to make it simpler to understand.

  • Three financial upgradation to be granted after 10, 20 and 30 years. (Para 1 of Annexure 1 to MACP Order dated 19.05.09)
  • All cadres including Group A (excluding organized Gr.A services) are eligible for grant of MACP. (Para 3 of Order dated 19.5.09)
  • Financial up gradation will be in next higher grade pay in the hierarchy of Grade Pay and not in the promotional hierarchy (as it was earlier). (Para 2 of Annexure)
  • 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. Like wise 3rd MACP for him will be given after completion of 25 years of regular service (Illustration 1 Para 28 (i) and (ii))
  • 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 (Illustration 3 Para 28 B)
  • 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. For example, if an employee joins in a CG Department during the year 2000, he is eligible to get a financial upgradation during the year 2010. (Para 9 of Annexure)
  • 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 30 years 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. (Para 9 of Annexure and Illustrations in Para 5 and Para 28)
  • 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. (Para 4 and 7 of annexure)
  • 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. (Para 4 of Annexure)
  • 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. (Para 5 and illustration thereof)
  • 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 a Jr. Engineer in CPWD, who was granted 1st ACP in old ACP scheme to the grade of Asstt. Engineer 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 of Asstt. Engineer, 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. (Para 6.2 of Annexure)
  • 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
  • Bench Mark (CCR/ACR Gradings) is “Good” up to GP 6600 thereafter is should be “Very Good”

  1. It is stated that “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”.
    Then, if an employee is in PB-2 with a Grade Pay of Rs 5400 and is eligible for an upgradation, what will be his upgraded Grade Pay? Whether it will be Rs 6400 i.e., the next higher Grade Pay or his Grade Pay will remain unchanged.

  10. 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. On 08.10.2008 i.e. completion of 24 years I got my 2nd financial up gradation according to ACP scheme in the revised pay scale of 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.
