National Federation   of Indian Railwaymen

No. IV/MACPS/O9/Vol. 9
Dated:  18/01/2016
The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub:  Entitlement of financial up-gradation under ACP/MACP  Schemes – Pharmacist  category-reg.

Ref:       DoP&T O.M. No.  35014/1/2014-Estt.   D dated 10/06/2015 addressed to JCM (Staff Side) and copy endorsed to Ministry of Railways and others.

Further to NFIR’s   letter of even number dated 05/01/2016, Federation invites attention of the Railway Board   to the DoP&T’s    O.M.   Dated   10/06/2015   wherein   clarifications   on financial   up-gradation   under ACPSIMACPS   for the category   of Pharmacist   have been conveyed.   Gists of the clarifications   are given hereunder:-

(i)          Every financial up-gradation including non-functional grades granted, have to be treated as offset against one financial up-gradation under the scheme

(ii)     The Pharmacists recruited in GP 2800/- are to be placed in GP 4200/- after completion of 2 years service. They will be eligible  for 2nd  financial  up-gradation  in GP 4600/–, on completion  of next 10 years  of service  i.e. total  12 years  of service  and further  3rd  MACP  on completion  of 22 years of continuous  service.

(iii)       The  Pharmacists   who  have  received  benefit  of  financial  up-gradation   under  ACP  Scheme  shall however  be  eligible  for  3rd   financial  up-gradation   under  MACPS  (which  came  into  effect  from 01/09/2008).                              .

(iv)        The  Pharmacists,   on  their  placement   from  GP  2800/-  (PB-l)   to  GP  4200/–  in  PB-2  have  been allowed  the  pay  fixation  benefit   equal  to  3%  of  existing  Basic  Pay  and  the  difference  in  GP consequent  upon such placement  which changes not only the Grade Pay but the Pay Band as well.

In this connection,   Federation   cites  below  the  cases  of  the  following  Pharmacists   working  in  the Railway  Hospitals  of Northern Railway,  which are required to be reviewed  for extending benefit on the basis of above clarifications  of DoP&T.acp macp nfir (*)  They  were  required  to be placed  in GP  4200/- on 01/01/2006 (being  provided  NFG),  having  completed more than two years service in the recruitment  Pay Scale Rs. 4500-7000  (5th  CPC)/Grade  Pay 2800/- (PB-l)  as on 31/12/2005.(**)  Item No.1   and 2 above have completed 12 years of service on 03/08/2006  & 05/02/2008  respectively  and as such they should be granted  1st ACP in GP 4600 from those dates.
acp macp nfir-2

Federation   also  conveys  that  in the  above  cases  the entitled  benefit  under  ACPIMACP   Scheme  has unfortunately  not been granted  with effect from the dates they were due as explained  in the above paras. There may be similar situations in the case of Pharmacist category on Zonal Railways.

NFIR, therefore,  requests  the Railway  Board to issue clarificatory  instructions  to the General Managers of Zonal Railways  and Productions  Units in general and Northern Railway in particular  to review the cases and extend  benefits  under  ACP/MACP   Scheme  correctly  and also allow consequential  benefits  to the Pharmacists. Federation may be replied of-action being taken in the matter.

Yours faithfully,

(Dr. M. Raghavaia)
General Secretary
