The General Secretaries of
Affiliated Unions of NFIR
Sub: Grant of financial upgradation under ACP & MACP Schemes for the Central Government Civilian Employees including Railway employees -reg.
Ref: (i) DoP&T OM No.35034/1/97-Estt(D) dated 09/08/1999
(ii) DoP&T OM No.35034/3/2008-Estt (D) dated 19/5/2009
(iii) NFIR’s letter No.IV/MACPs/09/Part II dated 21/08/2018 addressed to the Secretary, DoP&T Government of India, New Delhi.
For issuing modified instructions for granting financial upgradation under MACPS the date of effect may be taken as 01-01-2006 similar to the order issued by the Ministry of Defence.
While issuing modified instructions, in compliance with Apex court order, the DoP&t may allow option opportunity to all those beneficiaries of ACPS as well MACPS to exercise their option for financial upgradation from the dates advantageous to them so as to avoid further grievances.
It has since been learnt that the issue raised by NFIR is under active consideration (between DoP&T and MoF) and hopefully favourable decision may emerge in due course.
