OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject:- Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme for the Central Government Employees – Clarification regarding.

The undersigned is directed to invite reference to the Para 4 of Annexure-I of the Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme issued vide the Department of Personnel and Training Office Memorandum No.35034/3/2008-Estt.(D) dated May 19, 2009 providing that benefit of pay fixation available at the time of regular promotion shall also be allowed at the time of financial upgradation under the Scheme. Therefore, the pay shall be raised by 3% of the total pay in the pay band and the grade pay drawn before such upgradation. There shall, however, be no further fixation of pay at the time of regular promotion if it is in the same grade pay as granted under MACPS. However, at the time of actual promotion if it happens to be in a post carrying higher grade pay than what is available under MACPS, no pay fixation would be available and only difference of grade pay would be made available.

References have been received from various Ministries/Departments whether at the time of regular promotion/grant of Non-Functional scale, the employee may be allowed to draw the difference in Grade Pay after availing regular increment in the Pay Band and Grade Pay w.e.f. date of promotion or date of next increment consequent to MACP.

However, at the time of actual promotion / grant of Non-Functional Scale, if it happens to be in a post carrying higher Grade Pay than what is available under MACPS, no pay fixation would be available and only difference of grade pay would be made available.
