This is in regard to the cadre restructuring released now. This is really shocking to the Senior most Typist Cadre since not even one typist will get the benefit due to the implementation of feeder cadre. As per the Restructuring of Cadre dated 08/10/13, restructuring promotion has been allocated as 20% for 4600/- pay scale whereas 65% has been allocated in the 4200/- pay scale and 15% of 2400/- Grade Pay.
There are only 11 Typists (5 in 4600/- GP (1 Vacant post reserved for ST for more than 3 years now) and 6 in 4200/- GP) available in ICF, Chennai and there are no Typists in the 2400/-GP.
Hence I kindly request you to do the needful to distribute the 15% of 2400 /- GP and 65% of 4200/- GP in the 4600/- Pay scale so that atleast one or two will be benefited from this order.
Awaiting your favourable reply. Thanking you.

i want to know. if one person in state govt. fall under the category OF OBC in state(meena caste in M.P.) but in central govt. ST category. THEN in central govt jobs the person will be considered in which category. kindly help at the earliest.

I joined the Income Tax Deptt. at Kolkata, as Inspector on 31.03.1983. I got promotion as I.T.O. on 09.03.1995. I received another promotion as A.C.I.T.on 05.11.2008. I retired on 31.05.2010 as A.C.I.T. Circle-21, Kol. My A.C.P.for Financial Up-gradation fell due on 31.03.2007, as I got a single promotion in my 24 year’s service.

The Deptt passed an order No. 144 Dt. 16.10.2012, by virtue of which I was allowed financial up-gradation under the A.C.P. Scheme w.e.f.31.03.07 in PB-2, Band Pay- 9300-34800, with Grade Pay of 5400. But I was already drawing pay& allowances in Pay Band -2 w.e.f.01.01.06 under the CCS (RP) Rules.08. Thus, I was deprived of any financial benefit, in spite of financial up-gradation granted to me w.e.f.31.3.2007. The basic tenets of A.C.P. Scheme, is marred, as I am denied of any financial benefit in consequence of the order, in spite of my eligibility. The quintessence of the A.C.P. scheme is to provide financial benefit to the employee when A.C.P. has fallen due to him.
Thus, for no fault of mine, I have been denied of financial benefit in these hard days, due to under fixation of pre-retirement pay/pension/retirement benefits.

I would like to draw your kind attention to instruction contained in Para (7) of GIMF. Deptt. of Revenue, Central Board of Excise & Customs Ad-RR section F.No. A23011/29/2010 Ad 11A Dt.20.05.2010.The Central Board of Excise& Customs (CBEC) has directed therein, that the officers working under CBEC.who have been granted the pre-revised scale of pay of Rs 8000-275-13500/, as financial up- gradation in the promotional hierarchy under the A.C.P.Scheme on or before 31.08.2008, may be granted the pay scale in Pay Band 3 i.e. Rs 15600 – 39100 with Grade Pay of Rs5400/- as per the 6th C.P.C.replacement pay

On reading the above cited instruction, between the lines, I find that my case is analogous to the Petitioner whose reference to Hon’ble Cats’, Madras Bench, Judgment passed on 09/03/2011 has been drawn as a tool in issuing the instruction. Moreover, both of us are under the same Ministry and Dept, involved in tax collection for the central Govt. So, the clarification made by C.B.E.C., for removal of ambiguity in this type of cases, may be accepted by our Deptt.also.

In this connection, I also submit before you the clarification made by D.O.P.T. and D.O.E. in the case of one Shri Animesh Bose, STA, attached to Ministry of Corporate Affairs, whether benefits of pay fixation in the cases of ACPS/MACPS granted in the 5th CPC scales of Rs 8000-13500 has to be correspondingly fixed in PB 2+ GP of 5400 or in the PB 3+ GP of 5400 after 6th CPC implementation.
It has been observed by the D.O.P.T. “that since the financial up gradation under A.C.P. was in the promotional hierarchy, we are of the view that the pay fixation under A.C.P.’S in the pre-revised scale of Rs 8000-13500 should be in P.B. 3 with grade pay of Rs 5400.However , this may be got confirmed from Deptt. of Expenditure.”
The Deptt.of Expenditure observed “………….. Keeping in view of the promotional hierarchy and the clarification furnished by D.O.P.T. in the matter, Deptt. of Expenditure agrees to the proposal for grant of Grade Pay of Rs 5400 in Pay Band of Rs 15600 – 39100 in PB -3 to Shri Animesh Bose on attaining financial up gradation under A.C.P. Scheme prior to 31-08-2008
Both the D.O.P.T. and Deptt. of Expenditure are important organs of the Govt. in settling ambiguities at rest, particularly in structure of pay. You can’t perhaps ignore the observation made by the above two organs, where their views are the last words in case of any decision making .Moreover, the A.C.P. Rules have been framed by the D.O.P.T. itself. It is explicit from the case of Shri Animesh Bose that my case absolutely dovetails in the case of Shri Bose’s the decision taken in the case of Shri Bose is applicable to my case also

Respected Sir, am I not entitled to financial up-gradation under the A.CP. Scheme in the Pay Band 3 , with a G.P. of Rs 5400/- w.e.f.31.03.2007 with benefit of fixation of pay under the provision of FR22(1)(a)(1) as per OM NO.1/6/197/Pay Dt.05/07/199?.

Kindly offer your comments.

V pay commission gave us ACP based on promotional hierarchy however on the name of equalty of grade pay all over departments VI pay commsion is putting me in loss of more than 15 lakhs in balance service details are as under.
I Joined MES in 1987, I got first ACP (12 yrs) in 1999, as Next Post scale6500 scale later on changed in 4600 as GP
Second ACP was due in 2011 ( 24 Yrs) I should have got grade pay of Rs. 6600 as G pay of next post in promotional hirachey, but Govt is giving me MACP after 20 yrs with next G pay of Rs4800.00 , If i calculate the loss I am in loss of Rs. 1800 / month in grade pay and allowances. on an average (considering 16 yrs service balance)Rs 5000x12x16 ( balance service in yrs)=960000+ loss after III ACP/MACP which will be more than 1500000/- (approx). Many of my colleagues have already received 6600 as grade pay and some of them have also received grade pay of 7600 after completion of 30 yr of service where as as per VI pay comm recommendations I will get only 5400 G pay after 30 yrs of service.

Sir , What are the latest instruction regarding drawing of instructor allowance by a govt servant posted as an Instructor in a Government Training Institute. Further is he entitled to draw the amount from the date of empanellment or from the date of posting.As posting was against a authorised vacancy, and after getting the instructor grading the relevant course.Do clarify.

MACP should be made applicable wef l.l.2006 as the 6th PC recommendations are effective from l.l.2006, otherwise, the CG employees retired prior to Sept 2009 (i.e present effective date MACP) will loose monetorily particularly in pension . Hence, Govt. as promised in the concerned Meeting may please issue orders making MACP effective from l.l.2006 without any further delay.

I refer to the DOPT’s Frequently asked question and their clarification regarding ACP/MACP at serial NO.26 (iii) published in June.2012 in monthly Swamy News. DOUBT— If a Govt servant recruited in the pre revised pay scale 5000-8000 has been promoted in the promotiom hierarchy in the pre revised scale o Rs. 5500-9000 prior to 1.1.2006 ( and he has put in 14 years of regular service) then would there be any claim for financial upgradation under ACPS
CLARIFICATION– The pre revised pay scale Rs.5000-8000 & Rs.5500-9000 hve been merged and placed in PB-2 with grade pay of Rs. 4200 w.e.f. 1.1.2006. Hancd the promotion will be ignored as he has completed 12 years of regular service and the benefit of 1st ACP would accordingly be allowed in the promotional hierachy i.e. in grade pay of Rs.4600 w.e.f.1.1.2006.

My Question is…. I was recruited in the pre revised pay scale Rs. 5500-9000 and have been completed more the 17 years in this scale on 1.1.2006. My juniors who were recruited in the pay scale of 5000-8000 and due to the benefit of 1st ACP ( completion of 12 years) they got the pay scale of 5500-9000. As per above clarification they got the grade pay of Rs. 4600 on 1.1.2006 where as I was already recruited in this pay scale refused to give this grade pay Rs. 4600 by my department inspite of merging my pre revised pay scale 5500-9000 and 5000-8000 in the grade pay of Rs. 4200. Since both the scales have been merged in one grade pay Rs.4200 why am I not eligible for this benefit? Pl. clarify and obliged.

I was working in the Departmental Canteen under Armed Forces Headquarters, Min of Defence as a tea maker. My services was terminated as I could not clear my probation period. I have contributed to wards GP Fund, the requisite amount has been deducted through regular pay bills from Jan 2006 to May 2008. I approached my admin section/pay cell to refund the amount. It has been verbally told me that the amount cannot be refunded as there is no provision to refund the amount before attaining the age of 60 yrs under the new pension scheme-2004. Kindly advise/suggest me how to get my contribution back with suitable instructions/orders on the subject.



It is sorry to say that the the Grade Pay fixed in MACP scheme is adversely affecting the carriers of EDP middle level officers(Gp B Gazetted Officers). Prior to VIth Pay Commn Programmers of AFHQ was getting pay scale 7450-11,500 (incr 225)with PB-2 status, whereas SO’s of the same Orgn was in the Pay scale of 6500-10,500(incr 200). But after implementation of VIth pay Commission SO ‘s are getting PB-2 with G.Pay 4800 and on completion of four years GP 5400. On the contrary Programmers Pay Scale 7450-11500 has been merged with 6500-10,500 with Grade Pay 4600 without giving similar upgradation. If ACP scheme is given as an option it will solve such type of anomalies.

I was working as Hindi Typist (Jr. Assistant) in India Trade Promotion Organisation, New Delhi from July 1989 to June 2012. While the Post were vacant from July 2009 for the promotion of Assistant.

From a central govt employee who suffered loss due to implementation of MACP
To the attention of all the anomaly committee members and for favorable consideration during next meeting.

I joined in a corporation under Ministry of Labour Govt of India on 7-12-1983 as LDC. and regularsied as LDC on 05-04-1985. As per the ACP schme pay was revised from 8-8-99 under UDC scale of 4000-100-6000. 2nd financial upgradation was grated under ACP Scheme as per order dated 2-2-09 with grade pay of Rs.4200/- When MACP was implemented from 01-9-2008 my grade pay was reduced to Rs.2800/-
as per hierarchy of grade pay policy instead of hierarchy of promotion scale/grade pay. Sir Now I am lossing about Rs.3000/- per month. About 15 other colleques are also similerly losing. Ours is a central govt corporation which adopted similar central pay but having less promotional opportunities. We have to wait for about 15 years to get a promotion from LDC to UDC and to Asst.
Hence my and our friends submission before the committe is that MACP may please be modified with Promotion grade pay instead of hierarchical grade pay. At lease two grade pay may be in the promotional grade pay to remove this anomaly.Our seniors just one month above who got ACP had got grade pay of Rs.4200/- but we got MACP of Rs.2800/- Kindly rectify the anomaly

i have joined indian audit and accts deptt. on August 2010 in the grade pay of 4800. before joining, i appeared in the graduate level exam of SSC and intimated office on my own about the exam. i was subsequently selected for the post of auditor (grade pay 2800).
my question is that i want to resign from the present post (GP 4800) and wish to join the post with lower grade pay. Can I get technical resignation??

Please answer me and provide me the necessary rules/orders

my joining is on 11 January 2012. so will i get the increment in July or not. and when will i get the increment. please send the information on my e mail.

With due regards, it is submitted that we were directly appointed as Assistant Sub Inspector (Ministerial) during March’2001 in Central Reserve Police Force (C.R.P.F.), a Para-military force under the central Government in the pre-revised pay scale Rs.4000-100-6000 with the next date of increment in March of every year. Our rank was direct entry post at that time. The same rank i.e. Assistant Sub Inspector was also a direct entry rank for Pharmacists & Stenographers etc. in CRPF. From the year 2003 onwards, the direct entry post in our cadre was downgraded to Head Constable (Ministerial) and no direct recruitment of Assistant Sub Inspector (Ministerial) is being carried out since then. But there is no change in appointment of Assistant Sub Inspector (Pharmacist) & Assistant Sub Inspector (Stenographer) who are being appointed/ recruited directly in the entry grade in the pre-revised pay scale Rs.4000-100-6000 in CRPF.
2. As on 01-01-2006, our basic pay was Rs.4,400/- in the pre-revised pay scale of Rs.4000-100-6000. As per Sixth Central Pay Commission, our basic pay has been fixed at Rs.8,370/- plus Grade Pay Rs.2,800/- in the pay band Rs.5200-20200 by the department. Whereas in case of Assistant Sub Inspector (Pharmacist) & Assistant Sub Inspector (Stenographer) appointed directly on or after or before 01-01-2006 in the same rank as ours i.e. Assistant Sub Inspector in our department (CRPF) who were in the same pay scale i.e. Rs.4000-100-6000, their basic pay has been fixed at Rs.8,560/- plus Grade Pay Rs.2,800/- in the pay band Rs.5200-20200 as on 01/01/2006. From the above, it is clear that consequent on the implementation of pay commissions’ recommendations, an anomaly has arisen due to which our juniors in the same rank are drawing more pay than us.
3. Moreover, basic pay of an Assistant Sub Inspector (Stenographer) appointed during the year 2003 in the pre-revised pay scale of Rs.4000-100-6000 [same pay scale as ours] has been fixed at Rs.8,560/- plus Grade Pay 2,800/- as on 01-01-2006.
4. In view of above, it is requested to kindly clarify the position with regard to the difference of basic pay of Assistant Sub Inspector (Ministerial) and Assistant Sub Inspector (Pharmacist)/ Assistant Sub Inspector (Steno) who are junior to us which is against the right of equality and the correct procedure to fix our pay as on 01-01-2006 may also be explained please. we shall be grateful to you for this.

Appointed during 2001

When to Expect the “Warmest Day of the Year”

During the summer months, many areas in the United States approach their highest temperatures for the year. To give you a better idea of the warmest time of year for your area, NCEI has created these &ldquoWarmest Day of the Year&rdquo maps for the contiguous United States, Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. The maps are derived from the 1981&ndash2010 U.S. Climate Normals, NCEI&rsquos 30-year averages of climatological variables including the average high temperature for every day. From these values scientists can identify which day of the year, on average, has the highest maximum temperature, referred to here as the &ldquowarmest day.&rdquo

Although the amount of solar radiation reaching Earth peaks at the summer solstice on June 21 in the Northern Hemisphere, temperatures for most of the United States tend to keep increasing into July. The temperature increase after the solstice occurs because the rate of heat input from the sun during the day continues to be greater than the cooling at night for several weeks, until temperatures start to descend in late July and early August.

Police Brutality

  • 1,025 people have been shot and killed by police in the past year.
  • There are somewhere between 900 and 1,100 people who are shot and killed by police in the United States each year.
  • Since 2005, 98 non-federal law enforcement officers have been arrested in connection with fatal, on-duty shootings. To date, only 35 of these officers have been convicted of a crime, often a lesser offense such as manslaughter or negligent homicide, rather than murder. Only three officers have been convicted of murder during this period and seen their convictions stand. Another 22 officers were acquitted in a jury trial and nine were acquitted during a bench trial decided by a judge. 10 other cases were dismissed by a judge or a prosecutor, and in one instance no true bill was returned from a grand jury. Currently, there are 21 non-federal law enforcement officers with pending criminal cases for fatal shootings.

Public Perception of Police Brutality and Racial Bias in the Criminal Justice System

There is an obvious disparity in how the general public view fatal encounters between police and Black people. 66% said these encounters were isolated incidents.

  • 84% of Black adults say white people are treated better than black people by police 63% of white adults agree based on 2019 research on police relations.
  • 87% of Black adults say the U.S. criminal justice system is more unjust towards Black people 61% of white adults agree.
  • Despite the fact that more white people have been killed by police, Black and Hispanic people are disproportionately impacted. While white people make up a little over 60% of the population, they only make up about 41% of fatal police shootings. Black people make up 13.4% of the population, but make up 22% of fatal police shootings. This does not take into consideration other forms of police brutality, including non-lethal shootings.

The number of people shot to death by the police in the United States from 2017 to 2020, by race.

  • 539 claims were filed during the 2018-2019 fiscal year against the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office related to police misconduct. Two-hundred and forty-one lawsuits were dismissed without any payments. LAPD has approximately 9,000 sworn officers.

The Effects of Police Brutality on Mental Health

  • Police killings of unarmed Black Americans are responsible for more than 50 million additional days of poor mental health per year among Black Americans. This mental health burden is comparable to that associated with diabetes, a disease that strikes 1 in 5 Black Americans.
  • Fatal police violence is the 6th leading cause of death for men ages 25 to 29 across all racial groups.
  • The lifetime risk of dying from police violence is at its highest from ages 20 to 35, and this applies to men and women of all races.
  • On average, Black Americans are exposed to four police killings of other unarmed Black Americans in the same state each year.

The Cost of Police Brutality

  • While many police brutality and fatal police shootings are not prosecuted in criminal court, victims and the families of victims have been able to pursue civil judgments, which cost millions of taxpayers dollars each year.
  • $175.9 million in civil judgments and claims for police-related lawsuits paid by New York City during the 2019 fiscal year. New York City has the largest police force with 36,000 members serving 8.3 million people.
  • $500 million was paid out by the City of Chicago between 2004 and 2014 for police misconduct-related lawsuits.
