Reminder to Dte for pending issues

No. GS/AIAIASP/Meeting/2013 dated: 11/11/2014
Smt Alka Tewari,
Assistant Director General (SPN),
Department of Posts,
Dak Bhavan, Sansad Marg,
New Delhi 110001.
Subject : Informal meeting with Secretary (Posts) with the representatives of IP/ASP Association.
Ref. : Dte. No. 137-89/2013-SPB-II dated 11thOctober, 2013 (copy enclosed)
Respected madam,
IP/ASP Association would like to bring to your kind notice that Directorate vide above captioned letter has communicated the decision taken on the issues raised by Association in the informal meeting with Secretary (Posts) but following issues are still not fully resolved.

1.   Issue of seniority list of Inspector Posts cadre.
It was communicated by Directorate through above captioned letter that ‘seniority list is likely to be circulated within 15 days’.

But Directorate under Memo No. 9-09/2011-SPG dated 21/2/2014 has only circulated the seniority list (Gradation List) of Inspector Posts for the years 1998 and 1999 which contains only names of 49 officers. As the seniority lists are not timely circulated and therefore, this Association has again took up the issue with Directorate under letters dated 17/4/2014 and 1/9/2014 with a request to circulate the pending seniority lists in phase manner, but till this date these letters are neither acknowledged nor pending seniority lists are circulated. Seniority lists from 2000 onwards are not circulated by Directorate.

2. Clarification on merger of Inspector Posts and Assistant Superintendents Posts cadre.
It was communicated by Directorate through above captioned letter that ‘The Association was already informed that their proposal for grant of Grade Pay of Rs.4600/- to Inspector Posts could be considered only if IPOs and ASPOs cadre are merged into one cadre and the gazetted status of ASPOs is forgone. The Association had agreed to submit a revised proposal shortly to be considered by the Department’.

As agreed, this Association has already submitted revised proposal of merger of ASP cadre to PS Gr. B cadre under letter No. GS/AIAIASP/Merger ASP/2013 dated 21/11/2013 and queries raised thereon by Directorate under letter No. 25-35/2011-PE-I dated 19/5/2014 have also been replied on 14/6/2014, but till date nothing is heard about the settlement of this vital issue. Whereas on other hand, cadre re-structuring issues of other cadres i.e. IPoS have finalised by Directorate and forwarded to Nodal Ministry and cadre re-structuring of Gr. C cadre said to be at the stage of finalisation at Directorate.

It is therefore requested to direct the concern Divisions of Directorate to settle the above issues immediately.

An early positive action and line in reply will be highly appreciated.
Yours sincerely,
Sd/-(Vilas Ingale) General Secretary

Hon’ble Chairman and all Members heard the grievances very patiently in a positive manner. During the course of discussions, queries raised by Hon’ble Chairman and his team were actively replied by GS and his team to their satisfaction. GS further requested Hon’ble Chairman that the pay parity among Inspectors of other Central Government Departments i.e. Income Tax, Central Excise and Customs, Assistants and Personal Assistants in Central Secretariat Services etc. and Inspector Posts should be maintained. The duties and responsibilities (i.e. annual inspections of post offices, cash conveyance without police escorts, MGNREGS payments, recruitment of GDS staff etc.) of Inspector Posts and Inspectors working in other departments were also explained in details before 7CPC. Secretary of 7CPC took note of all new and important points discussed in the meeting.

Shri Manjunath Hubballi, Circle Secretary, Karnataka Circle Branch presented power point presentation in a effective manner. He briefed that Inspector Posts and Assistant Superintendents Posts are Middle Level Managers and they should get more pay than the staff being supervised by them.

Shri Roop Chand, Ex-GS and President Delhi Circle Branch explained the promotional avenues available to the IP/ASP cadre also bequeathed an example of long span of promotion and its stagnation etc. During the course of discussion, the issue of merger of ASP cadre with PS Group "B"/ IP cadre was also discussed in detail. Hon’ble Chairman advised us to pursue this vital issue with the Department of Posts/ Ministry of Finance and outcome of the same should be reported to 7CPC by separate note.

Shri S.S. Kulkarni, Ex-CHQ Treasurer and Ex-Circle Secretary, Maharashtra Circle and Shri M. S. Ahirrao, President, Maharashtra Circle also took active part in the discussion. Both the members brought to the notice of Hon'ble Chairman that Inspectors recruited through Direct Recruit quota in Department of Posts through SSC are quitting department immediately due to less Grade Pay than the Inspectors in other Central Govt. departments and therefore large number of posts of Inspectors in the department are lying vacant for years together.

The meeting ended with thanks to chair.
