MACP ON PROMOTIONAL HIERARCHY- ORGANISATIONAL/ FINANCIAL SUPPORT TO DEFEND THE SLP-REGARDING 

The extended meeting of the Steering Committee of MACP on Promotional Hierarchy held on 15/11/2014 has decided to write letters to all Gazetted Non Gazetted Employees’ Federations/Associations of all Ministries, seeking organizational/financial support in defence of the SLP against granting of MACP on promotional hierarchy, filed by the Central Government.

But we could not reach several of the Staff Associations/Federations, face MACP problems due to non availability of proper contact address/e-mail id/telephone number.

A letter inviting all Officers/Staff Associations who are not in contact of this steering committee is given below: All Federations/Associations are requested to send their contact address/telephone number/e-mail id etc immediately so that their name may also be incorporated in the list of steering committee.

            The President/General Secretary,
            All India Officers/Staff Associations affected with MACP

Sub:    Defeating the illogical and anti employee MACP scheme in the Supreme Court- seeking co operation of the all Federations/Associations-regarding.

Dear sir,

You are aware that various benches of the Central Administrative Tribunals and High courts pronounced verdicts in favour of financial upgradation under MACP Scheme on Promotional hierarchy on the petitions of Central Government Employees in various Departments. In the Principle Bench of CAT itself, more than half dozen cases have been decided in favour of granting financial upgradation under MACP Scheme on promotional hierarchy. But the Government of India has not implemented these orders citing one or other reasons. Moreover, Government has filed 4 SLPs against these verdicts in respect of the applicants, namely, Shri V Mohanan Nair of CAT Ernakulam, Shri Babu Ram, Smt Reeta Devi and Shri Dhirender Singh of CAT Chandigarh, at Supreme Court. Since the outcome of the SLP filed will affect all Central Government Employees, a steering committee consisting of representatives of Gazetted/Non Gazetted Staff of various Departments of Government of India was constituted on 25/09/2014. Thereafter two meetings of the steering committee were held on 27th September and 2nd October 2014 in which decision for intervening in the SLP filed in the Supreme Court was taken.

In order to expand the activities of the steering committee, an extended meeting of the committee was convened at Indra Prastha Bhawan, New Delhi on 15/11/2014 in which 55 persons representing 30 Associations of various Ministries participated. Moreover, around 10 Associations whose representatives who had not participated in the meeting have assured to abide the decision taken in the meeting, copy of the minutes is posted elsewhere in this web site.
While addressing the meeting Shri SK Vyas, Advisor, Confederation has suggested that MACP is a matter covering all Central Government Employees and as such it will be better if National JCM (Staff side)becomes an intervener of the case and the meeting has accepted the suggestion. Shri Vyas has further suggested that all the Unions/Associations including Unions in the Railways, Defense, Postal and Income tax, Audit & Accounts Association should be asked to give contribution to meet the legal and other expenses of the case. Accordingly, the meeting decided to send letters to all major Federations/Associations as well the Secretary JCM (Staff Side).

According to Supreme Court web site posting, the SLP of Shri Mohanan Nair is listed for hearing on 08th January 2015 and all the other three SLPs have been connected with this case. The extended meeting of the steering committee unanimously decided to engage lawyers to intervene in the SLP.The committee has decided to collect Rs. 15 lakhs to meet the immediate expenses in connection with intervention in the case etc. It was also decided to prepare a list of Federations/Associations from whom the contribution has to be collected.

In view of the above, this steering committee seeks your support both organizationally and financially to strengthen the united efforts to get a favourable verdict from the Supreme Court through legal means.

I, on behalf of the Steering Committee, request you to kindly extend your helping hand so that we may be able to defeat the illogical and anti employee MACP scheme in Supreme Court.
Please send a two line letter in confirmation of receipt of this letter.

Yours Sincerely

Shri SK Vyas, Advisor Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers, present in the meeting as guest, has suggested that the collection of funds in accordance with the affected persons is not practical and in place all Federations, Associations including the Federations/Association that are not affected with the MACP Scheme should be asked to give contribution to meet the requirement.
