The Government has ordered three financial upgradations under the ACP Scheme for CG Employees. It has accepted the recommendation of the 6th Pay Commission for granting only the next Grade Pay for such financial up gradation. The up gradation to next pay scale with higher Grade Pay will be available on completion of 10, 20 and 30 years of completion of service. This Scheme will ensure 3 financial upgradations in the entire career for those who could not get their regular promotion.
It is unfortunate that the much awaited modified “Assured Career Progression” for Central Government Employees has not yet announced. In every Departmental JCM meetings, decisions regarding this were in-conclusive till now.
Some informations received says that the government orders regarding the ACP was sent to DOPT from the Finance Ministry. The DOPT will be issuing the orders regarding this very soon.
As such, the National Executive of the Confederation meeting will be held on 2nd April 2009 in New Delhi. In this meeting, the government will be forced to explain the progress of the ACP Scheme and the result is eagerly awaited by the central government employees.
