Sub: Representation regarding MACP Scheme.

The undersigned is directed to forward herewith a letter (in original) dated 15.12.2018 from Shri Arun Kumar Sharma on the subject of MACP and to say that the recommendations of the 6th CPC were accepted by the Government only on 29.08.2008 (30.08.2008) in case of PBOR).  The recommendations of the 6th CPC were required to be examined and a Scheme was to be formulated in consultation with Department of Expenditure and the same took considerable time for its implementation.  Before implementation of the Scheme a cut off date had to be decided / fixed. Accordingly, the Government has taken a conscious decision for implementing the MACPS w.e.f. 01.09.2008.  THough the MACPS came into existence only w.e.f. 01.09.2008 the benefits of the existing ACP Scheme of August 1999, was allowed to the Government servants upto 31.08.2008.

2. VI Pay Commission recommended separate Schemes for Civilian and the Defence Personnel.  After the recommendations were considered and approved by the Cabinet, D/o Expenditure issued Resolution dated 29.08.2008 in respect of Civilian employees.  Ministry of Defence issued Resolution dated 30.08.2008 regarding extension of VI CPC benefits to Armed Forces Personnel.  Thus the Civilian and the PBOR personnel are governed by two different Resolutions/ two different MACP Schemes.

3. The instant order of Hon’ble Supreme Court is in the context of MACP Scheme issued by Ministry of Defence with regard o PBOR and hence the order of Hon’ble Apex Court is not applicable to the MACP Scheme issued by DoP&T for civilian employees.
