Subject: – Enhancement of benchmark from “Good” to “Very Good” for
grant of financial upgradation under MACP Scheme.

Sir/Madam,
Attention is invited to Department of Personnel and Training’s O.M No.
35034/3/2015-Estt.(D) dated 28.09.2016 whereby the benchmark for grant of
financial upgradation under MACP has been enhanced to “Very Good” with
effect from 25.04.2016.

2. In this regard, various references are being received regarding the
applicability of O.M dated 28.09.2016 for determining the eligibility for
grant of financial upgradation under MACP Scheme by the Departmental
Screening Committee.
 
3. The matter was taken up with the Ministry and it has been clarified that
the aforesaid O.M dated 28.09.2016 is applicable with effect from
253.07.2016 i.e the date of issue of Government Resolution by the
Department of Expenditure. Therefore, in cases where MACP falls due on or
after 25.07.2016, the revised benchmark of “Very Good” is to be followed.
In other words, the overall grading of the APARs reckonable for grant of
MACP should be at least “Very Good”.

4. Regarding assessing the ‘overall grading’ of APARs, it has been
clarified that guidelines/instructions issued by DoP&T with regard to
method of assessment by Departmental Promotion Committee (DPC) are
applicable in cases of Departmental Screening Committee (DSC) for grant of
financial upgradations under ACP/MACP Schemes. Hence, the principle adopted
by DPCs for arriving at “Overall grading” (“Very Good” in case of MACP) may
be adopted by the DSC also.
5. It is, therefore, requested that grant of financial upgradation under
MACP Scheme may be processed in light of the above clarification.
