Latest MACP Rules and Regulations
New Promotion Rules for Central Government Employees – Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACP)
Central Government accepted the new 7th pay commission promotion rules and implemented for all groups of Central Government employees.
Assured promotion scheme initially introduced by 5th pay commission with effect from 1996 and then 6th pay commission has changed the norms of 12 and 24 years to 10, 20 and 30 years. If an employee did not get any promotion during his continuous 10 years, he will upgrade to the next pay matrix level under the rule of the MACP Scheme.
Now the Department of Personnel and Training issued an important order regarding the assured promotional scheme in detail.
As per the OM, the 7th Pay Commission recommended that the MACP Scheme will continue to be administered at 10, 20 and 30 years as before.
In the new Pay matrix, the employees will move to the immediate next Level in the hierarchy. As per the recommendations, the Scheme will be available to all posts, including Group “A” posts, whether isolated or not.
However, Organised Group “A” Services will not be covered under the Scheme. In other words, MACPS will continue to be applicable to all employees up to HAG level, except members of Organised Group ‘A’ Services.
The Government has considered the recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission for continuation of MACPS and has accepted the same. The MACPS will continue to be administered at 10, 20 and 30 years as before. Under the Scheme, the employee will move to immediate next Pay Level in the new Pay Matrix.
For grant of financial upgradation under the MACP Scheme, the prescribed Benchmark shall be ‘Very Good’, for all levels.
No stepping up of pay in the level would be admissible with regard to junior getting more pay than the senior on account of pay fixation under MACP Scheme.
