‘No annual increment for non-performing employees’

NEW DELHI: Non-performing Central govern­ment employees will not get annual increment if their performance is not up to the mark, the Cen­tre has said.

The benchmark for performance appraisal for promotion and financial upgradation has been enhanced to “very good” from “good” level, the finance ministry said in an order notifying implementation of Seventh Central Pay Commis­sion’s recommendations.

The Modified Assured Career Progression (MACP) scheme will continue to be adminis­tered at 10, 20 and 30 years of service as before, the ministry said as it “accepted” the pay panel’s recommendations.

The recommendation of “withholding of an­nual increments in the case of those employees who are not able to meet the benchmark either for MACP or a regular promotion within the first 20 years of their service” has been “accept­ed”, it said.

The pay panel had in its report to the Centre said that there is a widespread perception that increments as well as upward movement in the hierarchy happen as a matter of course.

“The perception is that grant of MACP, al­though subject to the employee attaining the laid down threshold of performance, is taken for granted. This commission believes that employ­ees who do not meet the laid down performance criterion should not be allowed to earn future annual increments.

“The Commission is therefore proposing withholding of annual increments in the case of those employees who are not able to meet the benchmark either for MACP or a regular promotion within the first 20 years of their service. This will act as a deterrent for complacent and inefficient employees,” it had said.

There are about 50 lakh Central govern­ment employees.
