Subject: Clarification regarding counting of service rendered by Inspectors on notional basis for the purpose of MACP Scheme-
I am directed to refer to letters F. No. GCCO/CCA/Misc/6/2020-Admn-O/o CC-CGST-Zone- Jaipur dated 22.02.2021 and F. No. GCCO/CCA/Misc/94/2020-CCA- O/o CC-CGST-Zone- Lucknow dated 08.02.2021 received from Jaipur and Lucknow Zone respectively on the subject cited above.
2. In this context, it is informed that the issue was referred to DOP&T for clarification. DOP&T vide I.D. No. 1448864/21/CR Dated 29.06.2021 has clarified that “for the purpose of MACP Scheme, service rendered on assumption of charge of the post on regular basis alone will be counted for determining eligibility for next financial upgradation as the MACP Scheme provides that financial upgradation will be admissible to an employee only on spending 10 years after actual joining in the post. Therefore, the period of notional promotion till assumption of charge of the post on promotion shall not count for determining eligibility for a financial upgradation under MACP Scheme”.
3, This is for your information and further necessary action.
