Non-Functional Financial Upgradation is ACP-DOPT clarifies

As per Part B and C of CCS Revised Pay Rules, 2008, Employees of certain Group B posts in various departments were fixed with the grade pay of ` 4800 and after completion of 4 years of service in the those posts, they are eligible for Non-Functional financial upgradation to the Grade pay of `5400/-

The following Posts carry the said Non-Functional Financial Upgradation

Name of Post Pre-revised Pay Scale Pre-revised Pay Scale taken for Revised Pay under 6CPC Pay Band after 6CPC Grade Pay
         
Section Officer/PS/Equivalent 6500-10500 7500-12000 PB-2 4800
  After 4 Years 8000-13500 PB-3 5400
Administrative Officer Grade II/Sr.Private Secretary/Equivalent 7500-12000 7500-12000 PB-2 4800

Entry grade in DANICS, DANIPS, Pondicherry Civil Service and Pondicherry Police Service 6500-10500 7500-12000 PB-2 4800
  After 4 years 8000-13500 PB-3 5400

There is no confusion in this Upgradation but its effect on MACPS is the issue on hand now.

What will be the benefit under MACPS for an employee, who has been granted the grade pay of ` 5400 after completion of 4 years of service as per Part B and C of CCS Revised Pay Rules, 2008, as mentioned above?

Whether the Non-functional upgradation of grade pay from ` 4800 to ` 5400 after 4 years should be accounted as a promotion or ACP as far as MACPS is concerned? If this upgradation of grade pay is accounted as a promotion, obviously one of the three assured upgradations eligible under MACPS will be curtailed. We may think logically and say upgradation of grade pay from ` 4800 to ` 5400 under Part B and C of CCS Revised Pay Rules, 2008 is not a promotion. But, sources say DOPT has decided otherwise.

When Office of the Prinicpal Chief Controller of Accounts requested DOPT to clarify as to whether the grant of grade pay of ` 5400 in PB-2 alongwith the benefit of one increment of @3% may be treated as ACP or not, it has been clarified by DOPT to Principal Chief Controller of Accounts that the benefit of non-functional grade granted to the Superintendent (Group-B) officers after completion of 4 years would betreated as upgradation in terms of para 8.1 of Annexure-I of OM dated 19.05.2009 and the same would be off set against one financial upgradation under MACPS.

This decision is expected to result in reversal of MACP Orders issued to many of the employees who have been granted upgradation under MACPS recently by respective their administration.

    In 6th CPC common recomendation JTO Pay scale is revised to 7450 from 6500. But as there is no recommendation for TES Group B i,e AD in depart of telecom they have fixed JTO in PB-II in GP 4600 for JTO and AD GP 4800. After 4 years of services also Department is not giving GP 5400 either in PB-II or PB-III. DOT is telling that department of expenditure has rejected the case.

  15. n jayaram says

    Upgradation of post/pay-scale happens outside ACP/MACP schemes and also outside the rules for promotion within the cadre. Grant of NFS is one such upgradation outside the scope of ACP/MACP and promotion schemes. If one cares to read the rules, grant of NFS does not fall within the ambit of promotion because the rules for promotion prescribes several conditions like seniority, merit, zone of consideration, etc. For grant of NFS, a screening committee is constituted and vigilance clearance is obtained. Even if the composition of the Screening Committee is the same as that of DPC, Screening Committee cannot be termed as DPC. Thus, NFS is outside the purview of promotion.

    Similarly, ACP/MACP carries certain conditions and these conditions vary from NFS and therefore, treating NFS as one ACP/MACP upgradation would not sound correct.

    Rules can be made or existing rules may be amended to treat NFS as ACP/MACP, but the rules will only have prospective effect i.e. it will apply to the ACP/MACP upgradation due on or after the date of the rules so made/amended and not before.

    The central Govt has been very selective in implementing/extending the scheme of Non-Functional Financial Up gradation as envisaged in Part B and C of CCS Revised Pay Rules, 2008. This benefit has not been extended to all the departments. If this scheme is made effective from 01/09/2008 to all the departments many of the aberrations/anomalies created by MACP can be corrected to a great extent. For e.g. in IA & AD, there are instances that Asst Accts/Audit Officers (Group-B) who could not be covered under MACP are drawing less grade pay than the Sr.Accountants/Sr.Auditors who have bee granted III ACP. Further with in the cadre of Asst. Accounts Officer/Audit Officers there are instances of junior getting higher grade pay than the seniors. The scheme of MACP should provide for curing the anomaly or extend the Non-functional up-gradation, to up hold the principal that “under no circumstance a junior should draw more pay than the Senior and equal work equal pay”. DOPT should issue orders to extend this benefit to all departments with out waiting for the deliberation of National anomaly committee.
