Mid-Career Training Programmes for Bureaucrats


Mid-Career Training Programmes for Bureaucrats 

The percentage of participation of officers in the Mid-Career Training Programmes (MCTP) varies between 70% to 95% of the full capacity of the Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration (LBSNAA), Mussoorie. The programme was aimed at improving the competencies of the Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officers 

In accordance with the Indian Administrative Service (Pay) Rules, 2007 the State/UT Governments cannot grant career benefits to those IAS officers who have not completed the respective phases of the mandatory Mid Career Training Programme. 

The provisions of the IAS (Pay) Rules, 2007 and the implications thereof on grant of career benefits to IAS officers are brought to the notice of all the State Governments/UTs each year, before the commencement of each phase of the mandatory Mid Career Training Programme. 

This was stated by Minister of State in the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions and PMO, Shri V. Narayanasamy in written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha today. 

Annual Increment Calculation...



Being a central government employee, everybody knows that the annual increment will be granted on 1st July of every year after completing the qualifying service of 6 months in a year. But while calculating the increment one should know that how it is rounded off when the amount of increment ends up with fraction
It is very simple, but everyone should know about the procedure of calculation.

Here it is  explained with some illustrations… 

One increment is equal to 3% (three per cent)  of the sum of the Band Pay and the Grade pay  and it should be computed and rounded off to the next multiple of ten.

As per the Rule No.13 of CCS(Revised Pay) Rules 2008, “In the case of calculation of increments under the revised pay structure, paise should be ignored, but any amount of a rupee or more should be rounded off to next multiple of 10. To illustrate, if the amount of increment comes to Rs.1900.70 paise, then the amount will be rounded off to Rs.1900; if the amount of increment works out to be Rs.1901, then it will be rounded off to Rs.1910.”

 The amount of increment to  be added to the existing  Band pay.
For example : 

If an employee’s Band Pay is Rs.10,230 and his Grade pay Rs.2800, 
His basic pay = 10,230 + 2,800 = 13,030
His increment will be calculated as follows… 
13,030 x 3% = 390.90 
Here paise should be ignored and the amount will be rounded off to Rs.390.

Whereas, in another case, if the employee’s Band Pay  is Rs.10240 and his grade pay Rs.2800, his basic pay = 10,240 + 2,800 = 13,040 
His increment will be calculated as follows… 
13,040 x 3% = 391.20 
Then it will be rounded off to Rs.400.

Take a note of it and check your amount of  increments whether it has been worked out accordingly
