ACP SCHEME OR TBOP-BCR

WANT 3 ACP SCHEME OR REMAIN UNDER TBOP/BCR SCHEME?
 
STUDY BOTH AND CAST YOUR OPINION POLL VOTE
 
Dear Comrades!
 
The Government has ordered three financial upgradations under the ACP Scheme for CG Employees. It has accepted the recommendation of the 6th Pay Commission for granting only the next Grade Pay Pay Scale for such financial upgradation. The upgradation to next pay scale with higher Grade Pay will be available on completion of 10, 20 and 30 years of completion of service.
 
At the time of implementation of 5th CPC recommendations, we opted to remain under TBOP/BCR Scheme itself and said NO to ACP Scheme. The main reason being that the LGO Promotees in PA/SA cadre will get only one financial upgradation to TBOP level on completion of 24 years of total service and thereafter no ACP will be available to them. This is because the ACP Scheme considers regular promotion by examination or otherwise is equal to one financial upgradation already got by the officials. Under TBOP/BCR Scheme though the promotion was delayed to 16 and 26 years instead of 12 and 24 under ACP Scheme, we preferred TBOP/BCR Scheme only for this reason.
 
Now we are in the background of Department / Government maintaining that TBOP/BCR are not promotions and only financial upgradations. We have only two upgradations therefore after 16 and 26 years. The option before us are as follows:
 
1. Remain under the TBOP/BCR Scheme only and try to improve the Scheme to get a third financial upgradation under this Scheme itself. This may be possible but there is no guarentee as to how long the issue would be dragged on and what would be the ultimate result. But this option is there for us to remain so and fight for third promotion or upgradation after some years of getting BCR. The years of grant of such promotions/upgradations is subject matter of negotiations and acceptance by the Government. But one basic thing is that the Government may not go beyond the level of benefit available under the ACP Scheme in spite of the fact that we have paid a price to get the TBOP/BCR Scheme.
 
2. Opt for Modified 3 ACP Scheme that will provide 3 financial upgradations to the next Grade Pay level after 10, 20 and 30 years of service. This Scheme will ensure 3 financial upgradations in the entire career for those who could not get their regular promotion including by Departmental Examinations. Since regular promotion by examination or otherwise is also counted as one upgradation under this Scheme, the LGO Promotees  or other Promotees would get only two financial upgradations after their regular promotion.
 
3. Consider this fact that a direct recruited Postman without becoming a PA by Departmental examination but remains as a Postman only would get his First ACP to Grade Pay 2400/- after 10 years; 2nd upgradation to Grade Pay 2800/- after 20 years and to Grade Pay 4200/- on completion of 30 years. On the other hand a Postman who got his PA/SA Promotion by an Examination would thereafter go to 2nd Upgradation to Grade Pay 2800/- on completion of a total service of 20 years and to the same Grade Pay level of 4200/- after 30 eyars. Thus both the Promotees and others reach the same level under ACP Scheme.
 
3. All the direct recruits in a cadre will however get 3 upgradations. For example as in the case of Postmen, the PA direct recruitees will go to Grade Pay 2800/- after 10 years; to Grade Pay 4200/- in 20 years; and to Grade Pay 4600/- on completion of 30 years.
 
4. There are opinions and suggestions for improving the ACP Scheme itself by modifying the condition to the extent that regular promotion by examination or otherwise is discounted and promotees also are granted 3 ACPs after the promotion by examination. But this is not possible overnight. The issue may have to be taken up but the response of the government is not certain now. However the question of improving ACP Scheme is always there but the question now is whether we have to opt for 3 ACP Scheme or to remain in TBOP/BCR Scheme and try to improve the latter.
 
5. In sum and substance the question is are we to get into ACP Scheme and try improvement there OR remain under TBOP/BCR Scheme and try improvement here.
 
6. Which is more ADVANTAGEOUS?
 
7. ANALYSE THESE AND OTHER FACTS AND VOTE IN THE OPINION POLLS IN NFPE WEBSITE ON THE LEFT TOP - YOUR  OPINION IS MUST BEFORE NFPE ANALYSE THE ISSUE IN ITS FEDERAL EXECUTIVE IN THIRUVANANTHAPURAM ON 22.09.2008.

Dear Sir, I go through your analysis on ACP scheme. Considering the all aspect, is is clear that switch over to new ACP scheme would be more benificial for us. I therefore request you to take necessary action on this issue so that all the employees can get some financial benifit on completion of 10,20 & 30 years rather than waiting for 16 years TBOP cadre to get a marginal hike of grade pay by Rs. 400/ only.Struggle for upgrade the ACP futher may be continued after switch over to the ACP scheme also. A favourable action from your platform is solicited.

Dear Comrades,
You are requested to go through to have ACP scheme. It is clear that switch over to new ACP scheme would be more benificial for us. I therefore request you to take necessary action on this issue so that all the employees can get some financial benifit on completion of 10,20 & 30 years rather than waiting for 16 years TBOP cadre / 26 years BCR cadre. Kindly opt ACP instead of TBOP for upgration of employees of postal dept. It is also clear by opinin Poll that maximum employees are favourable to ACP instead of TBOP scheme. A favourable action from from our union is requested for benefit of employees.

LAST TIME WE MISSED THE BUS OF ACP DUE TO WRONG INTERPRETATION OF THE SCHEME. PROMOTIVES ALSO ELIGIBLE FOR ACP WITH REFERENCE TO THE CLARIFICATION GIVEN BY THE DO P & T WHILE GRANTING ACP TO IP OFFICIALS WHO COME TO THEIR CADRE THROUGH EXAMINATION FROM PA CADRE. SO ACCEPT THE ACP SCHEME STRAIGHT AWAY OTHERWISE THE LOSS WILL BE IRREPAIRABLE.

Comrade,

The argument that the LGOs will not get promotion as the promotion to PA cadre is considered as first ACP is notwithstanding. LGOs are seperate cadre. PAs are seperate. Don't clubt these two together. A PA becoming IPO or SPOs will not have dream for becoming DPS or PMG. You have to think in this way. Try to reduce the ACP promotion time span to 8-12-and 16 instead of 10-20 and 30 as prevailing in State Services. You may think/aim high not not look below and stick on old ideology.

prakash gopalan said...

Comrade,

Combining the LGO cadre and PA Cadre is issue notwithstanding. These are two different cadres. If PA promoted to IPO or SP cannot think of becoming PMG or CPMG.

Instead of 10,20 and 30 time span the 8,12 & 16 years promotion may be considered as prevailing in state government.

we must aim high and look high

NFPE said...

Dear Comrade Prakash - it is not an issue now that IPO cadre and PA cadre is one and the same or not. It is a question of application of the ACP Scheme in vogue already [2 ACP] with different yardstick between one cadre and another - Moreover with the introduction of 3rd ACP, now even without availability of SSPO vacancy, the IPOs who were already availed ASP and SP upgradations would get the upgradation as SSPO pay band also on completion of 30 years of service. Our contention is that on entering into ACP Scheme we should also be able to raise the issue and improve the chance of third upgradation for the promotees also. I feel now you will be able to understand clearly what NFPE Circular was aiming to convey. Regards.
