ACP for Subordinate Engineering Cadres :- Status

We have been fighting for the implementation of ACP scheme for our cadres, which were rejected repeatedly by the authorities including DOP&T. ultimately we were compelled to file a case in Hon'ble CAT Kolkata which we won. Thereafter department has appealed in the Hon'ble High Court of Kolkata. Meanwhile, after repeated discussions with various officials including CEO, Prasar Bharati, department has forwarded a proposal, to extend the benefit of ACP to subordinate engineering cadres, to the Ministry of I&B. this is the first time the o/o DG, AIR & Prasar Bharati has agreed with our demand of ACP. Consequent to ARTEE's demand and follow up the relevent file had ben refferd to Ministry of I & B, long back on 14th ,Áugust,2008 itself.

No Final order have been issued till date. Case is pending with Ministry. We have been vigorously following up the issue with Ministry.
