The below information was submitted as a written reply in the Parliament to a question on 20th Feb 2014 as follows…
The Government decided to create a grade of UDC ‘Non-Functional Selection Grade (NFSG)’ in Central Secretariat Clerical Services (CSCS) in the grade pay of Rs.4200/- in Pay Band-2 vide O.M. No. 20/49/2009-CS-II(B) dated 22.6.2011. As per the O.M. mentioned above, UDCs of CSCS with 5 years of approved Service are eligible for grant of Grade Pay of Rs.4200/- (NFSG) subject to the condition that the total number in the grade will be restricted to 30% of the sanctioned strength. The NFSG grade came into being from the date of issue of the said O.M.
Modified Assured Career Progression (MACP) Scheme came into operation w.e.f 1.9.2008. The Scheme ensures three Financial up-gradation in the immediate next higher grade pay in the hierarchy of recommended revised pay bands as given in CCS (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008 on completion of 10, 20 and 30 years of continuous regular service subject to the provisions of Scheme issued vide DOP&T O.M. No. 35034/3/2008-Estt.(D) dated 19.5.2009. MACP benefits are granted with effect from the actual date of completion of 10 years of regular service in any grade since its inception from 1.9.2008 by the concerned cadre units. The benefit of NFSG could not be availed of by the beneficiaries as the Select List 2003(extended) of UDCs of CSCS is sub-judice.
