Sub:-Treatment of employees selected under LDCE Scheme/GDCE Scheme.
The undersigned is directed to refer to AIRF's letter No.AIRF/MACP (260), dt. 07.10.2013 on the above subject and to state that the financial upgradation under MACP Scheme is purely personal to the employee and determined on the basis of personal service particulars of the concerned employee viz, date of joining of a post on direct recruitment basis,subsequent promotions earned as well as method of selection/promotion, intervals at which these promotions were earned etc. In terms of para-9 of Board's policy instructions on MACP Scheme dt.10-6-09 "regular service for the purpose of MACPS shall commence from the date of a joining of a post on a regular basis in direct entry grade on direct recruitment basis. Evidently, an employee who has selected/promoted to a post having element of Promotion Quota cannot be treated at par with DR recruits under LDCE/GDCE.
Further, attention is invited to the instructions contained in Board's letter dated 12-9-12 regarding regulation of MACPS in case of employees who selected under LDCE/GDCE which demonstrates that "if the relevant Recruitment Rules provide for filling up the vacancies in a grade by Direct Recruitment, the induction of an employee to that grade through LDCE/GDCE may be treated as Direct Recruitment and if the RRs prescribe for 'Promotion Quota' through LDCE/GDCE, such appointment would be treated as promotion for MACPS purpose.
