7th CPC Recommendations on Multi Tasking Staff
Multi-Tasking Staff (MTS) : The demand from MTS has been with respect to increase in frequency of MACP and non-functional upgradation at promotional levels. It has been urged that Multi-Tasking Staff (MTS) working in Delhi Police be converted into Uniformed Staff as Constable Tradesman like in the CAPFs and granted same pay structure of Constable. Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration (LBSNAA) has demanded that 50 percent posts of LDCs be earmarked for filing up by promotion/Departmental Examination by MTS.
Analysis and Recommendations : Looking at the qualification requirements and their job profile, the Commission does not recommend any changes in the pay structure or the promotional prospects of the MTS. Regarding MTS in Delhi Police, the Commission is of the view that since MTS is a common category, any special dispensation to MTS in Delhi Police is not justified.
In so far as the MTS of LBSNAA are concerned, the Commission notes as per the recruitment rules for LDC, presently only 5 percent of MTS can get promoted to LDC through limited departmental examination. However, since the government has stopped direct recruitment for the clerical cadre and gradually phasing out the existing incumbents, their demand cannot be accepted
