Sub:- Providing opportunity, for submitting representation, to the employees who have been awarded below “Very Good” Grading in their last three years’ APARs (for the purpose. of MACPs)
As the. Railways ·are aware, based on recommendations of the 7thCPC, the benchmark for grant of MACPs benefit has been enhanced from “Good” to “Very Good” w.e.f. 25.07.2016, for which, three (03) years’ APARs are taken into consideration. The step has debarred certain number of staff from this financial upgradation.
2. Since the earlier “Good” benchmark for MACPs. was applicable upto 25.07.2016, the employee, having “Good” Grading in their APARs for the previous three years before 25.07.2016 may not have had a reason to represent against the Gradings given, as they met the then prescribed criteria of benchmarking for MACPs. Now since the
benchmark for MACPs has been raised to “Very Good”, there seems a justification to allow the emplpyees having “Good” or below Grading for a period of three years’ APAR Grading immepiately preceding the cut off date ibid an opportunity to represent against the same.
3. Considering the above and the demand raised by both Federations e.g. AIRF & NFIR to this effect , Board have decided that the employees who had been awarded “Good” or below Grading their previous three years APARs (for years 2014-201 5, 2015-2016 a~d 2016-2017) may be given a chance, as a one time measure, to represent against the same within 30 days from communication of this order. The representation submitted by such employees may be considered and decided by the Accepting Authority and, in case where the accepting authority has demitted office for
whatever the reason it may be, by the authority higher than accepting authority within a period of 30 days in term’s of Board’s letter No. E(NG)I-91/CR/2 dated 10.06.1993. This dispensation ~as been made for the purpose of MACPs only and may be given wide publicity among the officials concerned.

I was waiting for macp from 10 years. But on date 25.12.2016 it is declared that benchmark for macp is enhanced from good to very good and it would be implemented from 2014-2015th onwards. It is totally against natural law and un-justified. When good benchmark was criteria for macp was continued, it is un-justified to implement it from 2014-2015th which is de-facto and against natural justice. As per Dehli High Court judgement I request to our leaders to put demand before Govt.for implementation from 01.01.2018 onwards which will be in favour of natural justice.

Benchmark for macp should be applied from 01.01.2018 as per Dehli High Court judgement. It is unjustified to implement it from 2014-2015 and onwards. Most of the employees are sufferer. I request to our Top Leaders to consider on application of very good benchmark. So many employees are waiting for good benchmark which is also applicable for promotion. Post-facto implementation or request for good benchmark for last three years is very difficult for employees who did not get promotions in 10-20-30 years.
