“VERY GOOD” BENCH MARK FOR MACP AND DENIAL OF PROMOTIONAL HIERARCHY
the MACP scheme was introduced in 2008, JCM staff side has been
demanding promotional hierarchy instead of grade pay hierarchy. Govt,
instead of considering this genuine demand, suddenly issued orders
imposing “very good” bench mark condition for MACP. The JCM
staffside was not even consulted. JCM staff side, secretary wrote a
letter to cabinet secretary on 28-07-2016 as follows:
Govt. has accepted one of the adverse recommendations of 7th CPC
without holding any consultation with the staff side. The
recommendation of the 7th CPC regarding bench mark for performance
appraisal for promotion and financial upgradation under MACPs, to be
enhanced from “Good” to “very good”, has been accepted by the
Govt. without considering the implication on the morale of the
Central Government employees… We are of the firm opinion that Govt.
should reconsider their decision on the above issues and we request
you to kindly withdraw the same.”
the case was discussed in the JCM standing committee meeting also on
25-10-2016, as an agenda item given by staff side. Inspite of all
these, the Government is not ready to withdraw or modify the orders.
shows the attitude of the BJP led NDA Govt. towards JCM staff side
and Central Govt. employees.
