MACP to teaching staff of KVs


MACP to teaching staff of KVs
One of the conditions for grant of Modified Assured Career Progression (MACP) scheme is that the earlier Assured Career Progression (ACP) scheme should have been implemented / adopted by the autonomous / statutory body. Since Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) had themselves chosen not to opt the earlier ACP scheme for their teaching staff, the question of grant of MACP to teaching staff does not arise.

Senior Scale will be granted to the teaching staff of KVS after completion of 12 years service in the respective cadre and Selection Scale will be granted after completion of 12 years service in the senior scale. However, the number of posts in the selection scale for the teaching staff will be restricted to 20% of the number of posts in the senior scale of the respective cadre.
The Senior Scale and Selection Scale will be given after screening regarding their satisfactory performance by an appropriate Departmental Promotion Committee.

Selection scale will be granted to Primary School Teachers (PRTs) and Trained Graduate Teachers (TGTs) subject to their attainment of higher qualification laid down for TGTs and Post Graduate Teachers (PGTs) respectively. However, this condition has been waived off for the miscellaneous categories of teachers of KVS.

KVS has informed that all the teachers are getting their Senior Scale in time, though some teachers may not eventually get the Selection Scale due to non- fulfilment of the prescribed criteria for the same or their retirements preceding the date of eligibility.

Having regard to the prescribed criteria for grant of selection scale, the details of eligible teachers during the current year, post-wise, is as under:-

Name of the Post For grant of Senior ScaleFor grant of Selection Scale
PGTs161372
TGTs120573
PRTs81735
Head Master120
Misc. Categories of teachers12325

KVS has informed that representations had been received from recognized staff associations for waiving off the condition of 20% for grant of Selection Scale to teachers and these representations have been considered and disposed off from time to time. No fresh proposal is under examination in this regard.
