Subject: Clarification related to grant of financial upgradation under MACP
This HQrs. had taken up a case with DoP&T seeking clarification on the date from which financial upgradation under MACPS is to be granted in respect of an employee who had been found “Not Fit” by the initial Screening Committee due to not meeting the prescribed benchmark (based on APAR grading) but in subsequent year/ years he was recommended “Fit” by the Screening Committee after meeting the prescribed benchmark.
2. Clarification issued by the DoP&T vide its ID Note No. 1462926/21/CR dated 04.10.2021 is as follows:-
“The matter has been examined. It is clarified that due to the reason of the employee being declared ‘Unfit’ for not meeting the prescribed benchmark (based on APAR grading) by the initial Screening Committee and if the employee is recommended ‘Fit’ by the Screening Committee for subsequent year/years, on his meeting the prescribed benchmark, financial upgradation under MACPS would be granted to the employee from the date” of meeting of that Screening Committee, which has recommended him ‘Fit’ for grant of MACP. Further, this would have consequential effect of deferment of the subsequent financial Upgradation under MACPS in the extent the previous financial upgradation gets postponed.”
3. All related cases (including the cases settled earlier) may be regulated accordingly.
