7th Pay Commission - Finmin: MACP on performance to be reconsidered?


7th Pay Commission - Finmin: MACP on performance to be reconsidered?

New Delhi: Good-performing Central government employees will now get MACP if their performance is not upto the mark of "very good", the Finance Ministry officials told The Sen Times on condition of anonymity.
They has said the government will reconsider the benchmark for performance appraisal for promotion and financial upgradation, which was enhanced to "very good" from "good" level for central government employees under the the 7th Pay Commission recommendations.

The Modified Assured Career Progression (MACP) scheme continues to be administered at 10, 20 and 30 years of service as before, the officials said as it "accepted" the pay panel’s recommendations.

However "good" benchmark on ACR/APAR (Annual Confidential Report/Annual Performance Appraisal Report) of the employees and officers that will help them now get MACP, they added.

"The government had a wrong idea about MACP. Now, the concepts have become clear to the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley," they confirmed.

The government implemented the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission from August 2016. The central government employees also got arrears from January 2016.
The pay panel had in its report said that performance benchmarks for MACP should be enhanced to "very good" from "good".

The pay panel also proposed that annual increments not be granted in the case of those employees who are not able to meet the benchmark either for MACP or for a regular promotion in the first 20 years of their service.

The government accepted both proposals in June 2016 with basic salary hike but proposal increasing allowances has been accepted on June 28, 2017, which comes into effect from July 1, 2017 without arrears, which made resentment among the central government employees.
