iWhether grading of “very good” is applicable from 25.7.2016 onwards and for previous period the old grading i.e. “good” may be taken into while considering MACPS or the “very good” grading is to be considered for the whole period of 5 years w.e.f. 25.7.2016 as per the DoP&T’s order dated 27/28.09.2016.The DoP&T vide OM dated 28.09.2016 has implemented the recommendation of 7thCPC, accepted by the Government for enhancing benchmark for grant of MACP to “Very Good”. These instructions are applicable w.e.f. 25.07.2016, the date of issue of Government Resolution by D/o Expenditure. Therefore, in cases where MACP falls due on or after 25.07.2016, the revised benchmark of “Very Good” is to be followed. In other words, the overall grading of the APARs reckonable for grant of MACP should be atleast “Very Good”.
