GUIDELINES FOR FINANCIAL UPGRADATION OF  NON-TEACHING EMPLOYEES UNDER ASSURED CAREER PROGRESSION SCHEME  

In view of the approval of UGC vide its letter No.F.9-1/2000(DU) dated 21.12.2000, the Executive Council in its 32nd meeting held on April 9, 2001 has approved implementation of Assured Career Progression Scheme for non-teaching employees of Jamia Hamdard with effect from 09/04/2001.  

This scheme is meant for Group “B”, “C”, and “D” services/posts and isolated posts in Group  “A”, “B”, “C”, and “D” categories. The scheme is intended to deal with the problem of genuine stagnation and hardship faced by the employees in certain cadres due to lack of adequate promotional avenues. 

CONDITIONS FOR GRANT OF BENEFIT UNDER THE ASSURED CAREER PROGRESSION SCHEME 

The following are the important conditions for implementation of the Assured Career Progression Scheme:

 

1.                 The placement of employees in the higher scale of pay/grant of financial benefits (through financial upgradation) shall be purely on personal basis and shall therefore, neither amount to functional/regular promotion nor would require creation of new posts for the purpose. 

2.                  The highest pay scale upto which the financial upgradation under the Scheme shall be available will be Rs. 14,300-18,300.  Beyond this level, there shall be no financial upgradation and higher posts shall be filled strictly on vacancy based promotions. 

3.                  The financial benefit under the Assured Career Progression Scheme shall be granted from the date of completion of eligibility period prescribed under the Scheme or from April 09, 2001, the date of approval/adoption of the scheme by the Executive Council of Jamia Hamdard, whichever is later.  

4.                  The first financial upgradation under the ACP Scheme shall be allowed after 12 years of regular service and the second upgradation after 12 years of regular service from the date of the first financial upgradation subject to fulfillment of prescribed conditions.  In other words, if the first upgradation gets postponed on account of the employee not found fit or due to departmental proceedings, etc.  this would have consequential effect on the second upgradation which would also get deferred accordingly. 

5.                  Two financial upgradations under the ACP Scheme in the entire  service career of an employee shall be counted against regular promotions (including in-situ promotion and fast-track promotion availed through limited departmental competitive examination) availed from the grade in which an employee was appointed as a direct recruit.  This shall mean that two financial upgradations under the ACP Scheme shall be available only if no regular promotions during the prescribed periods (12 and 24 years) have been availed by an employee.  If an employee has already got one regular promotion, he shall qualify for the second financial upgradation only on completion of 24 years of regular service under the ACP Scheme.  In case two prior promotions on regular basis have already been received by an employee, no benefit under the ACP Scheme shall accrue to him/her. 

Residency periods (regular service) for grant of benefits under the ACP Scheme shall be counted from the grade in which an employee was appointed as a direct recruit

6.                  Fulfillment of normal promotion norms (bench-mark, departmental examination, seniority-cum-fitness in the case of Group “D” employees, etc.)  for grant of financial upgradations, performance of such duties as are entrusted to the employees together with retention of old designations, financial upgradations as personal to the incumbent for the stated purposes and restriction of the ACP Scheme for financial and certain other benefits (House Building Advance) only without conferring any privileges related to higher status (e.g. invitation to ceremonial functions, deputation to higher posts. etc.)  shall be ensured for grant of benefits under the ACP Scheme 

7.                  Financial upgradation under the Scheme shall be given to the next higher grade in accordance with the existing hierarchy in a cadre/category of posts without creating new posts for the purpose.  However in case of isolated posts, in the absence of defined hierarchical grades, financial upgradation shall be given in the immediately next higher (standard/common) pay-scales as mentioned below.  For instance, incumbents of isolated posts in the pay scale S-4, will be eligible for the proposed two financial upgradations only to the pay scales S-5 and S-6.  Financial upgradation on a dynamic basis (i.e. without having to create posts in the relevant scale of pay) has been recommended by the Fifth Central Pay Commission only for the incumbents of isolated posts which have no avenues of promotion at all.  Since financial upgradations under the Scheme shall be personal to the incumbent of the isolated post, the same shall be filled at its original level  (pay –scale) when vacated.  Posts which are part of a well-defined cadre shall not qualify for the ACP Scheme on ‘dynamic’ basis.  The ACP benefits in their case shall be granted conforming to the existing hierarchical structure only.

8.                  The financial upgradation under the ACP Scheme shall be purely personal to the employee and shall have no relevance to his seniority position.  As such, there shall be no additional financial upgradation for the senior employee on the ground that the junior employee in the grade has got higher pay-scale under the ACP Scheme. 

9.                  On upgradation under the ACP Scheme pay of an employee shall be fixed under the provisions of FR 22(1) a (1) subject to a minimum financial benefit of Rs. 100/- as per the Department of Personnel and Training Office Memorandum No.1/6/97-Pay I dated July 5, 1999.  The financial benefit allowed under the ACP Scheme shall be final and no pay-fixation benefit shall accrue at the time of regular promotion i.e. posting against a functional post in the higher grade. 

10.              Grant of higher pay-scale under the ACP Scheme shall be conditional to the fact that an employee, while accepting the said benefit, shall be deemed to have given his unqualified acceptance for regular promotion on occurrence of vacancy subsequently.  In case he refuses to accept the higher post on regular promotion subsequently, he shall be subject to normal debarment for regular promotion as prescribed in the general instructions in this regard.  However, as and when he accepts regular promotion thereafter, he shall become eligible for the second upgradation under the ACP Scheme only after he completes the required eligibility service  / period under the ACP scheme in that higher grade subject to the condition that the period for which he was debarred for regular promotion shall not count for the purpose.  For example, if a person has got one financial upgradation after rendering 12 years of regular service and after 2 years therefrom if he refuses regular promotion and is consequently debarred for one year and subsequently he is promoted to the higher grade on regular basis after completion of 15 years (12+2+1) of regular service, he shall be eligible for consideration for the second upgradation under the ACP Scheme only after rendering ten more years in addition to two years of service already rendered by him after the first financial upgradation (2+10) in that higher grade i.e. after 25 years (12+2+1+10) of regular service because the debarment period of one year cannot be taken into account towards the required 12 years of regular service in that higher grade. 

11.              In the matter of disciplinary/penalty proceedings, grant of benefits under the ACP Scheme shall be subject to rules governing normal promotion.  Such cases shall, therefore, be regulated under the provisions of relevant rules, and instructions there under. 

12.              Subject to Condition No. 4 above, in cases where the employees have already completed 24 years of regular service, with or without a promotion, the second financial upgradation under the scheme shall be granted directly.  Further, in order to rationalise unequal level of stagnation, benefit of surplus regular service (not taken into account for the first upgradation under the scheme) shall be given at the subsequent stage (second) of financial upgradation under the ACP Scheme as a one time measure, In other words, in respect of employees who have already rendered more that 12 years but less than 24 years of regular service, while the first financial upgradation shall be granted immediately, the surplus regular service beyond the first 12 years shall also be counted towards the next 12 years of regular service required for grant of the second financial upgradation and, consequently, they shall be considered for the second financial upgradation also as and when they complete 24 years of regular service without waiting for completion of 12 more years of regular service after the first financial upgradation already granted under the Scheme. 

13.              Any promotion, personal promotions, time bound promotions (One Upward Movement/Second Upward Movement), in-situ promotions, any financial upgradations, any club structuring scheme, personal pay scales schemes, any restructuring of cadres, implementation of Local Cadre Review Committee recommendations, any large scale/mass stepping up exercise etc., carried out by universities resulting into financial benefits of higher pay scales etc. have to be adjusted against the ACP Scheme. 

14.              A departmental screening committee shall be constituted by the Vice-Chancellor for processing the cases for grant of benefit under the ACP Scheme.
