Five Promotions under MACP – JCM proposes to 7th Pay Commission

Grant of five Promotions under MACP – National Council, Staff Side, JCM proposed in the Memorandum submitted to 7th CPC

For the efficient functioning of an institution, the primary pre-requisite is to have a contended workforce.  It is not only the emoluments, perks and privileges that motivate an employee to give his best. They are no doubt important.  But what is more important is to provide them a systematic career progression.

The present system of career progression available in the All India Services and the organised group A Civil services attracts large number of young, talented and educated persons to compete in the All India Civil Service Examination.  No different was the career progression scheme available in the subordinate services in the past.

Persons who were recruited to subordinate services were able to climb to Managerial positions over a period of time.   The  situation  underwent  vast  changes  in  the  last  two  decades.   In  most  of  the Departments, stagnation has come to stay.  It takes decades to be promoted to the next higher grade  in  the  hierarchy.   It  was  the  recognition  of  the  lack  of  promotional  avenue  in  the subordinate services that made the 5th CPC to recommend a time bound two career progression schemes.

The three time bound scheme of MACP instead of improving the situation has been found less beneficial and has therefore not gone to address the inherent problem of de- motivation that has crept in due to the high level of stagnation.

In most of the Departments, the exercise of cadre review which was considered important was not carried out.  Any attempt in this regard was restricted to Group A services.

The discontent amongst the employees in the matter is of high magnitude today.  The VII CPC therefore, should recommend that the cadre revies are undertaken wherever not done sofar to ensure five hierarchical promotions to all employees in their career on the pattern obtaining for Group A Officers.
