Odisha 7th Pay Commission : Modified Assured Career Progression (MACP) Scheme.
Modified Assured Career Progression (MACP) Scheme.
The Revised Assured Career Progression Scheme (RACPS) ceases to operate with the end of Orissa Revised Scales of Pay Rules, 2008. However, this shall remain in force for an employee till he continues to draw pay in the pre- revised pay band and grade pay under ORSP Rules, 2008. Henceforth, the Revised Assured Career Progression (RACP) Scheme is replaced with introduction of Modified Assured Career Progression (MACP) Scheme w.e.f. 01.01.2016 in the Odisha Revised Scales of Pay Rules, 2017 (to be issued). There shall be three financial up-gradations under MACP Scheme, counted from the direct entry grade on completion of 10, 20 & 30 years of service respectively in absence of promotion.
The MACP Scheme envisages merely placement of the employee in the next higher Level prescribed in the Pay Matrix in each stage of up-gradation. But, such placement shall be in the next higher Cell in the Level where the promotional post carries the same Level in the Pay Matrix. There shall be a Screening Committee to decide the suitability and eligibility of the employees for up-gradation under the scheme in the manner prescribed in RACP Scheme. The constitution and work procedure of the Screening Committee shall be the same as applicable in RACP Scheme. The manner of pay fixation in case of promotion shall be applied in case of fixation of pay of an employee in the next higher Level under the MACP Scheme. However, fixation of pay under MACP Scheme shall depend upon the fixation of pay availed under RACP Scheme. No stepping up pay/ antedation of increment between senior and junior shall be permissible where anomaly arises after regulation of pay under MACP Scheme because up-gradation under the Scheme is purely personal to the employee.
