No.11/1/2010- JCA dated 03.05.2010.

2 . The issue of providing a n option to organisations/cadres to have a choice for the benefits under the earlier ACPS or the MACPS was also discussed in the meeting of the Joint Committee. While the issue would require further deliberations, it is reiterated that MACPS (as was the case with the ACPS) is a fall back option in the event of promotions not taking place.

Accordingly, all concerned are advised to review the cadre structure in a time bound manner with a view to mitigate problem of stagnation.

3. All Ministries/Departments may give wide circulation to the contents of this O.M. for guidance and appropriate action in the matter.
