Dear Sir,

Sub: Treatment of employees selected under LDCE Scheme/GDCE Scheme

Ref: Item No. 12,30 & 49 of the record of discussion of 3rd meeting of the Joint Committee on MACP held on 15th March, 2011

During 3rd meeting of the Joint Committee on MACP, held under the Chairmanship of Secretary €, DoP&T on 15th March. 2011, the following decisions have been taken:-

“The Staff Side demanded that the employees selected under the LDCE Scheme/GDCE Scheme should be treated as a direct recruit and their earlier promotions and services rendered should be ignored for the purpose of MACPs as was being done in the ACP Scheme. The Official Side informed that the treatment of such cases would generally be same in the MACP as was in the ACP Scheme. Ministry of Railways would be advised to examine the matter accordingly”.

In this connection, it may be pointed out that in terms of Railway Board’s letter No.PC/V/99/1/1/1/  dated 01.10.1999, it was already decided and benefit of ACP would be granted to the candidate selected through LDCE. The relevant portion of the instructions in this regard is cited below:-

“If the relevant Recruitment Rules provide for filling-up of vacancies of the Stenographer “D’/Jr. Stenographer by DR, induction of JR. Clerks to the aforesaid grade through LDCE may be treated as DR for the benefit under ACPs…”

The Board are requested to issue necessary clarification on the subject so that the employees selected under LDCE/GDCE Scheme are treated as Direct Recruitment and their promotion be ignored for the purpose of granting benefit under MACP Scheme.

Yours faithfully
(Rakhal Das Gupta)
Working President

Only MACP has created a huge differences. The Government must be revert back and the promotional scale should be granted as earlier given in the old ACP scheme instead of the next immediate grade pay. New MACP scheme has only huge loss rather than benefit. So promotional hierarchy should be given on MACP. Please implement it as the earliest.

Why Government is taking much time to implement the old ACP scheme as the new MACP scheme has no benefit for employees. MACP scheme must be on promotional hierarchy basis just like old ACP scheme.

Treatment of PROMOTEE through LDCE/GDCE as promotion not DR for MACPS purposes is not only in Railway but also in other departments of Govt. of India and other bodies under Govt. of India. So it should be considered for all employees of Govt. of India.

If the prescribed qualification & source of Recruitment/Selection for DRQ & LDCE are one & same except for age relaxation such induction through LDCE is to be treated on par with DR. But RB has not considered the case of Graduate clerks LDCE as agaist DRQ even though d prescribed conditions are same. If all induction through LDCE which involves promotion is treated as against Prmotee quota without any clearcut guidelines I am doubtful whether there is any LDCE which is left out to be treated as DR under cl.(i) of RBE 100/12.
