The Delhi Labour Department has issued an order on October 19, 2023, to reconstitute a screening committee for granting financial upgradation under the Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme.
This order applies to eligible Group – B & C central government civilian employees. Casual employees, including those granted ‘temporary status,’ and employees appointed in the Government on an ad-hoc or contract basis do not qualify for benefits under the aforementioned Scheme.
Under the MACP Scheme, three financial upgradations are allowed upon completing 10, 20, and 30 years of regular service, counted from the direct entry grade. The MACPS only involves placement in the immediate next higher grade pay. The MACP Scheme for Central Civilian Government Employees supersedes the earlier ACP Scheme.
A Screening Committee shall be constituted in each department to consider the case for granting financial upgradations under the MACPS. The Screening Committee shall consist of a Chairperson and two Members. The Members of the Committee shall comprise officers holding posts that are at least one level above the level at which the MACP is to be considered and not below the rank of Under Secretary or equivalent in the Government. The Chairperson should generally have a level above that of the Members of the Committee.
Accordingly, the composition of the Screening Committee is as follows:
- Additional Labour Commissioner – Chairperson
- Deputy Labour Commissioner (Administrative) – Member
- Senior Accounts Officer – Member
