MACP to teaching staff of KVs

One of the conditions for grant of Modified Assured Career Progression (MACP) scheme is that the earlier Assured Career Progression (ACP) scheme should have been implemented / adopted by the autonomous / statutory body. Since Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) had themselves chosen not to opt the earlier ACP scheme for their teaching staff, the question of grant of MACP to teaching staff does not arise.

Senior Scale will be granted to the teaching staff of KVS after completion of 12 years service in the respective cadre and Selection Scale will be granted after completion of 12 years service in the senior scale. However, the number of posts in the selection scale for the teaching staff will be restricted to 20% of the number of posts in the senior scale of the respective cadre.

The Senior Scale and Selection Scale will be given after screening regarding their satisfactory performance by an appropriate Departmental Promotion Committee.
Selection scale will be granted to Primary School Teachers (PRTs) and Trained Graduate Teachers (TGTs) subject to their attainment of higher qualification laid down for TGTs and Post Graduate Teachers (PGTs) respectively. However, this condition has been waived off for the miscellaneous categories of teachers of KVS.

KVS has informed that all the teachers are getting their Senior Scale in time, though some teachers may not eventually get the Selection Scale due to non-fulfilment of the prescribed criteria for the same or their retirements preceding the date of eligibility.

Having regard to the prescribed criteria for grant of selection scale, the details of eligible teachers during the current year, post-wise, is as under:-
Name of the Post
For grant of Senior Scale
For grant of Selection Scale
PGTs
161
372
TGTs
120
573
PRTs
81
735
Head Master
12
0
Misc. Categories of teachers
12
325

KVS has informed that representations had been received from recognized staff associations for waiving off the condition of 20% for grant of Selection Scale to teachers and these representations have been considered and disposed off from time to time. No fresh proposal is under examination in this regard.

Discontinuing Reservation Chart Preparation

Pasting of Reservation Charts on Train Coaches Discontinued?

Discontinuing Reservation Chart Preparation

Based on a similar successful experiment conducted by South Western Railway, the practice of pasting of reservation charts on train coaches was discontinued at New Delhi, Hazrat Nizamuddin, Bombay Central, Chennai Central, Howrah and Sealdah stations of Indian Railways on experimental basis for a period of three months. Keeping in view the positive feedback received from Zonal Railways, it has been decided to discontinue pasting of reservation charts on reserved coaches of trains at all erstwhile A1, A & B category of stations as a pilot project for six months starting from 01.03.2018.

The logic behind doing away with the practice of pasting of reservation charts on reserved coaches is as under:-
(i) Passengers holding confirmed ticket are aware of their coach/berth number as the same is indicated on the tickets at the time of booking itself, except in case of First Class air-conditioned class.
(ii) At present around 65% of the reserved tickets are being issued through internet for which, mobile number is invariably captured on which an SMS is sent at the time of booking.
(iii) Waitlisted and Reservation Against Cancellation (RAC) passengers get their status update on their registered mobile number through SMS at the time of preparation of first reservation chart which is at least four hours before the scheduled departure of the train.
(iv) Digital charting system has been installed at major stations and at other stations manual boards are installed for displaying the status of the waitlisted tickets to guide the passengers.
(v) Apart from the above, Interactive Voice Response System (IVRS) service through 139, online booking website is available for passengers for checking the status of the tickets on real time basis.
(vi) It will save the cost of stationery as well as savings on account of manpower involved in pasting of reservation charts.

In view of the reasons mentioned above, now there is no need for the passengers to check their reservation status through the reservation charts displayed on the coaches. Moreover, reservation charts continue to be displayed on the station platforms for passengers including senior citizens who would like to view it on charts/ digital charts in all stations including A-1, A & B category stations.

This information was given by the Minister of State for Railways and Coal Shri Rajen Gohain in a written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha on 14.3.2018.
