First OM:

No. 8/1/2012-EC-X 

New Delhi, Dated 12.07.2012


Subject : Clarification regarding Grant of 2nd MACP after 18 years and 3rd MACP after 28 years after the grant of selection grade to the Work-charged staff of CPWD after 8 years of service.

We have been receiving references from various field units of CPWD/PWD seeking clarification from this Directorate regarding Grant of IInd and IIIrd MACP after the grant of selection grade to the skilled categories of work-charged staff of CPWD on completion of 8 years of service.

The matter has been examined in this Directorate in the light of Department of Personnel and Training’s Office Memorandum No.35034/3/2008-Estt.(D) dated 19.05.2009. As selection grade is to be treated as one promotion / up gradation for the purpose of grant of ACP/MACP, therefore, after grant of selection grade on completion of 8 years of service to skilled category, the IInd MACP may be granted to the Direct Recruit workers on completion of 10 years in a grade i.e.after 18 years (8+10) and IIIrd MACP after 28 years (8+10+10 years) as elaborated in the illustration given in Department of Personnel and Training’s Office Memorandum No.35034/3/2008 –Estt. (D) dated 19.05.2009 (copy enclosed)

As the selection Grade is to be treated as Promotion for the grant of MACP to the wok charged staff of the CPWD, the benefit of pay fixation available at the time of regular promotion shall also be allowed at the time of grant of selection grade. 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 section grade.

This issues with the approval of ADG (S & P)
