Subject: Review of Cadre structuring – Regarding
In pursuance of the decision taken in the 2nd meeting of the National Anomaly Committee held on 27.03.2010, a Joint Committee to examine the anomalies pertaining to the Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS) was constituted vide Department of Personnel & Training (DOPT)’s O.M. No.11/1/2010-JCA dated 03.05.2010.
2. The issue of providing an option to organisations/cadres to have a choice for the benefits under the earlier ACPS or the MACPS was also discussed in the meeting of the Joint Committee. While the issue would require further deliberations, it is reiterated that MACPS (as was the case with the ACPS) is a fall back option in the event of promotions not taking place. Cadre structure needs to be reviewed periodically to harmonise the functional needs of the organisation and career progression of employees. Accordingly, all concerned are advised to review the cadre structure in a time bound manner with a view to mitigate problem of stagnation.
3. All Ministries/Departments may give wide circulation to the contents of this O.M. for guidance and appropriate action in the matter.
4. Hindi version will follow.
