 Shri V.K.Gupta, DG, CPWD,

Nirman Bhawan, New Delhi.

                                                       Subject:         Restoration of ACP Scheme.


         Kindly refer to the above cited letter vide which the minutes of meeting held by you with our Association on 12/9/2013 and 26/9/2013 are circulated .

        In the agenda Item No. 1, it was clearly mentioned that if the proposal of individual option to choose ACPS or MACPS as recommended by the UD Ministry to DoPT does not find favour with them , we would stand by our earlier submission/demand for restoration of ACPS as a cadre option. This issue was further discussed by our Association with the Secretary (UD) during his meeting with various associations of  CPWD on 8/10/2013, in which also it was stated by us that in case his recommendation for individual option is not agreed to, earlier ACP scheme should be restored. Similar demand for restoration of ACP Scheme is also put forward by CPWD Junior Engineers Association . The detailed record of minutes of meeting is already circulated by the UD Ministry vide their O.M. No. F.N.24011/1/2013-EW.ll dated 21/10/2013 at SI.No. 5 & 6 of the Annexure .

             Now it is reliably learnt that the recommendation of Ministry of Urban Development to grant individual option to choose ACPS or MACPS has been discussed at length  in a  meeting  chaired  by  Secretary  DoPT  on 15/ 10/2013 and it is also learnt that the recommendation was not accepted by DoPT and Department of Expenditure. Confirmation in this regard is already received from Secretary DoPT to the Secretary (UD) and your directorate . Hence we request you to kindly send the proposal for immediate  restoration  of  erstwhile  ACP  Scheme  to  DOPT/Department of Expenditure  through UD Ministry as already suggested by the Joint Secretary , DoPT in their comments on a Court Case in this regard.

              It was also decided in the Joint Committee on MACPS in its Meeting held on 15/9/2010 and the minutes/record note circulated by DoPT vide their O.M. No. 11/1/2010-JCA dated 6/10/2010 in which it was stated that “Afterdetailed discussion s on the issues, it was decided that para 13 of the MACPS shall be revised to the effect that organizations/cadres shall have the option to choose either ACP Scheme or the MACP Scheme. Individual Options, however, cannot be permitted “.

             In view of the repeated adamant stand by the DoPT and Department of Expenditure in not allowing individual option, we are left with no other option but to demand immediate  restoration of erstwhile ACP Scheme as above.

                                                                                                  Thanking you,

Yours faithfully


 (P.R. Charan  Babu) General Secretary

  1. Dear sir
    We have created a huge mess of ACP/MACP.What is the sanctity of restoring ACP at this juncture when the MACP is already in force?Rather than going into past we should fight for MACP as per CAT judgement.There is much disparity in the pay scales as of now.Some are getting GP as 4600 whereas others are getting as 6600 & 7600 after a certain service period.If the asso. is unable to restore the dignity of our cadre then we are happy to accept 4800 GP after 20 yrs.& so.My words may be harsh but please take it as positive side and fight for 5400 GP as initial GP to AE,6600 after completion of 20 yrs and 7600 after 30 yrs.
