the scheme has been 
effective to resolve the disputes between the Central
Government employees and Government of India. But of late,
the scheme is not
been administered properly causing frustration among the Central Government

         He reminded the Secretary, DoP&T that since he is the custodian of the
scheme, it would be appropriate for him to see that the scheme functions both at
the National and Departmental levels in its letter and spirit.
         He said that the meeting of the Ordinary Meeting of the National Council,
JCM(full-fledged meeting) was held on 15.05.2010 and after that no meeting

with the items in the agenda, but nowadays Sub-Committees are also not being
          He also said that in many departments, Departmental Council has not yet been
formed on some plea or the other, and where Departmental Councils are yet to
form, the Anomaly Committee is totally absent.
         He also stated that, wherever Departmental Council and Anomaly Committee have
been formed, they have 
not been allowed to take independent decision and
they are to depend on everything on Ministry of Finance or

       He said that we are crossing six years of the VI CPC report and shortly there

recommendations made

not being implemented because these have not
been cleared by the DoP&T
and MoF(Exp.). He demanded de-centralization and delegation of powers to
ministries for smooth and quick decisions. He also mentioned that where already
fundamental rule 
exists, like fixation under FR-22(C), why MoF(Exp.) insists

ministries themselves.

    Respected Sir/Madam,
    Ref our points on Aug 17 2012 regarding increase Grade Pay in respect of LDC & UDC. Sir no fruitfull resuelt received from govt of indian. However, I think all clerikal staff is facing deficullty due to non emplement of of LDC & UDC GP. Sir, am I once again requested to point out to jcm meeting regarding increase GP at the earliest or as early as possible.

    Thanking you Sir,

  • tannay singh 12 years ago


  • Sir,
    In previous times the Transport Allowance was not admissible to those employees who were on tour for more than one month because transport allowance was a part of traveling allowance, hence preventing from double transport allowance it was not admissible. But now Transport allowance is a separate component of Traveling allowance and it is admissible for the official on the tour only when the vouchers of the same is produced, so maximum officials who are on tour are not able to claim this allowance. This is resulting into non-obtaining any transport allowance by the official when they on the tour for more than one month. In my view at least an option facility should be provided to such officials whether they want to take fixed transport allowance or daily Transport allowance as per TA rules.

Hence you are kindly requested to increase GP in respect of LDC Rs.2400/- & UDC Rs.2800/-Pm due to non facing finencial hardship. If possible inrease GP Rs.2800/- in LDC & Rs.4200 in UDC.

    There is no direct recruitment in many departments from Grade Pay level of Rs. 6600 and above and below it there are direct recruitments at all level. In case, latest anomaly committee recommendations for giving minimum of pay as fixed for direct recruitee to promotoees also is implemented for the posts having direct recruitment in RR only, then officers promottee in the GP of 6600 will be deprived to get benefit of the orders.

  • Naresh Kumar 12 years ago

    Multiplication of pay by 1.86 in upgraded scales has been implemented in CAG in case of SO/AAO, Railway, Income tax etc. Then, it should be implemented in all departments.

  • Grant promotional hierarchy under MACP to give the justice to group C

  • Anonymous 12 years ago

    I am of the opinion that the Sr.PSs are to be granted the grade pay Rs.5400/- while the PSs are for Rs.4800/-. Private Secretaries, on completion of 04 years, be granted the grade pay of Rs.5400/-.

  • Anonymous 12 years ago

    MACP must be based on hierarchy of promotions in all caders

  • Any policy on pay matters should be progressive but very dissapointed with MACP which is really demoralising large sector of employees. ACP was introduced to comprise the loss due to lack of promotions but the very purpose of ACP was defeated with the introduction of MACP.In case of JE`s in MES they should get AE`s scale entry during I ACP which is with GP of Rs.5400 but due to this nonsense MACP a JE after completion of 10 years is getting only GP of Rs.4800 which clearly proves the injustice towards JE`s.

    Employees who already got Financial Upgradation under MACP Scheme have not been granted increment on getting their next promtion. Has this issue has been taken up with NAC ?

  • Anonymous 12 years ago

    no body think about LDC,

  • Anonymous 12 years ago

    GP5400 to the Asstt. Accounts/Audit officers in IAAD department after 4 years must be considered because the other department are allowed to 5400 grade pay after completion of 4 years on the recommendation of committee.

  • Anonymous 12 years ago

    Lot of Injustice has been done due to the merger of the Pay scales 5000 & 5500 and awarding Rs.4,200/- Grade pay to those merged Grades. Many of the Central Govt employes waited eagerly to the good news of Revised Pay Scale with Higher Grade pay on 17 Jul 12.But we are disappointed.
    Please reconsider to grant atleast Rs.4,600/- Grade Pay to the Merged Scale instead of Rs.4,200/- grade Pay.

    In Such case, we will get Rs.4800/-GP after Ist MACP and Rs.5400/-GP after 2nd MACP.which will be a blessing in disguise.

    I request all the JCM Leaders to put their sincere efforts on this issue.

    With Regards.

    MACP IS ONLY benificial for officer grade over 4800/- grade pay and below that grade pay MACP is totally have no benefit but a disaste forcing the system of up gradation under hierarchy of GP replacing the old hierarchy of promotional post. Thus , it is our request again again to staff side to kindly convince the DOPT to agree on the issue on likely meeting on 27/07/12

  • A Ministerial Staff 12 years ago

    No any hope for Clerical/Ministerial Cadre i.e.

    Gde Pay of LDC should be 2400/-
    Gde Pay of UDC should be 2800/- further 4200 after 5 years

    After all Sixth CPC is unfortunate for us

  • Anonymous 12 years ago

    Sir, is there no hope of fixation of new pay band wrt item no 1,2,3,4 i,e fixing initial pay band of 6500×1.86 instead of 5000×1.86 which is contrary to the pay commission

  • G.K.NATH 12 years ago

    Sir, millions of employee below GP 4800 (i.e. up to GP 4600) are direct victims of new MACP ,forcing the system of up gradation under hierarchy of GP replacing the old hierarchy of promotional post. Thus , it is our request again again to staff side to kindly convince the DOPT to agree on the issue on likely meeting on 27/07/12 , as the matter has already been delayed. Now such looser Govt employees are already frustrated and the works in offices are practically effected as millions of employees have lost their faith on the effectiveness of NAC etc. Please do something concrete……….

    what happen if there is no direct entry post in a cader all the post fill up by promotee than they still get only one increment and difference of grade pay or minimum to that grade pay fresh recruitment

  • Anonymous 12 years ago

    Appointed as Jr Clerk in Railway through RSC (now RRB) and promoted as Sr Clerk in April 1988. After wards till now (2012) no promotion.
    By virtue of own service, on completion of 24 years of service got 5000-8000 scale (ACP) in April 2006 by opting upgradation from increment date.
    Now Feb to June 06 increment holders are getting one extra increment as per para 10 of RSRP rules.
    But for promotees or ACP promoted employees no extra increment or promotinal fixation is announced.
    I request the Govt./administration to ammend / revise the orders, so that employee like me can get financial benefit on promotion (ACP).
    Moreover 1988 promotee should get two financial upgradation upto 2008.
    But for Dopt orders, employees like me, who are very few in number, are deprived of financial benefits either way.
    I humbly, sincerely request the authority to kindly, once again, think over the anamoly of this type and issue modified orders. Thanking you Sir.
