The issue of grant of ACP/MACP to Pharmacists referred to HQrs Office vide your office letter dated 12-01-2017 has been examined in consultation with other PCsDA/CSDA. As regard to the first point of doubt referred by your office, it is viewed that grant of NFU (in the grade pay of Rs 4200/-) to the pharmacists who have already been granted GP of Rs 4200/- by virtue of ACP or otherwise as on 01-
01-2006 does not appear to be in tune with or supported by the orders regulating the grant of NFU.
2. Further, regarding second doubt raised by your office it is stated that the clarification given at S] No 2 of DOPT OM No 35()34/1/97-Estt (D) (Vol-IV) dated 10-02-2000 clearly stipulates that in cases where pay scale given as selection grade/in-situ promotion is not a part of hierarchy, the pay scale granted by virtue of selection grade/in-situ promotion may be treated to have withdrawn on grant of ACP. In View of the provisions ibid it is viewed that the pay scale/ grade pay of Rs 4200/- granted by virtue of NFU in the cases of pharmacists which is not a part of hierarchy may be treated to have withdrawn on grant of ACP.
