The outcome of the First Meeting of Joint committee on MACP

             The First Meeting of Joint committee on MACP was held on 25-5-2010 . Altogether 8 issues related MACP anomalies were discussed in the meeting.
             The MACPS (Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme) order was issued on 19-5-2008. Since then all the Central Government Employees Federations, confederations are demanding that Grade Pay of the next Promotional Post to be granted under the new MACP Scheme instead of granting next higher Grade Pay in the revised Grade Pay Hierarchy.
            Now it has been informed through the circular published by confederation that the above said core issue of MACP was taken for discussion in the meeting. Staff side pressed for placement in the Grade Pay of the Promotional Post instead of next higher Grade Pay in the hierarchy of revised Pay Band and Grade Pay. It was insisted because the career progression only means the promotion in the hierarchy and not to a Grade Pay which is not present in the hierarchy of the respective department.
           But after that, it is believed that the Staff Side also gave an alternative that first two MACPs after 10 and 20 years should be to the next promotional post as per the hierarchy of respective department as under the erstwhile ACP scheme and thereafter the third MACP in the next Grade Pay of the Revised Pay Band and Grade Pay.
           Why should the Staff Side compromising their position of demanding promotional Grade Pay under MACP,by suggesting that first two MACP should be in promotional hierarchy and third MACP can be in Grade Pay hierarchy?
