Memorandum submitted to CPMG at Guntur

Memorandum Submitted to the Honorable  Chief Postmaster General ,AP Circle on issues of Postmaster  Cadre by Circle Secretary, AIAPS, AP Circle ON 03.01.2017
Sir
                Sub:-Legitimate request for holding of DPC for promotions of Postmaster Cadre
                Ref:-1.Directorate letter No. 04-43/2013-SPB-II dated at     Dak Bhavan, Sansad      
                        Marg, New Delhi the 28.04.2016.

                We humbly submit the following few lines for favor of sympathetic consideration and early orders.
                Postmaster Cadre has been created with a sole motive of managing Post office by professionally trained staff and also  to be face and front runners of the departments initiatives like CBS, CSI,RICT etc., We believe that the department’s desire has been realized in implementation of various technology projects being introduced by department since 2011.
                At the time of promotion of this new cadre, most of the incumbents had opted for a promotion which carries lower or equal grade pay than they were taking at that time of promotion hoping they would get a promotion and get some financial benefit. 
Directorate was kind enough in granting relaxation of minimum service of 6 years in grade one for promotion to grade two vide letter cited under reference. This order is an oasis for the postmaster cadre fraternity who are frustrated in their arid journey for promotion. This order has been implemented in letter and spirits by various circle viz. Tamilnadu, Maharastra,odisha, Uttar Pradesh etc.,
                Our association has represented several times since April 2016 with united circle office for implementing the above order. But so far the above order has not been implemented which is detrimental to the interests of the postmaster cadre in the following important areas.
1. Delay in promotion to grade two will become a bottle neck at the time of promotion to Sr Postmaster. (First joined person is considered to be senior than the next joined person). Since the Sr. Postmaster promotion is based on seniority cum fitness from Grade-iii

2. Non implementation has caused serious financial loss to the eligible officials since their 7 th CPC Pay was fixed before their promotion which has a permanent loss to the employee. Pay fixation after promotion could have been more beneficial.

3 . Many senior most officials who were to get promotion retired without getting promotion thereby had to incur monetary loss on the amount of pension.


                                        Therefore I urge the honorable and kind CPMG to cause to arrange DPC as early as possible to settle long pending legitimate demand of the young Postmasters and help increase the productivity of the department.    We assure of you of our loyal and sincere service at the beck and call of your able leadership.

                                                                                                                                                                Thanking you Sir
                                                                                                                                                                Yours Sincerely,

                                                                                                                                                                (B.Ambedkar Raju)
                                                                                                                                                                    Circle Secretary
                                                                                                                                                                         A I A P S
                                                                                                                                                                          AP CIRCLE

IMPLEMENTATION OF DIRECTORATE ORDER ON ONE TIME RELAXATION OF RRs IN R/O POST MASTER CADRE

DEAR POST MASTERS,

Directorate had issued instructions on 28.04.2016 that vacant Post Master Grade-II and Grade-III should be filled by applying one time relaxation in minimum qualifying service on certain grounds. The order could not be implemented in both Telangana and Andhra Pradesh Circles due to various administrative reasons not know to the association.  Even after lapse of 8 months, there is no progress on this issue though our Circle Secretaries addressed Circle Office through letters and in personal.  Every time we are getting reply from Circle Administration that "Matter will be settled within fortnight"  so far we have crossed 16 fortnights still our issue is under process!!!!!!!  We have suffered unsustainable financial loss in VII CPC for not conducting DPC in the month of May or June-2016. 

On other side, some postal circles have conducted DPCs and issued orders to fill up vacant posts either on promotion or ad-hoc basis. We have to face seniority anamoly in future with Post Masters of other postal circles as they have already joined as Post Master Gr.II and will get Grade-III Post Master after completion of 5 years regular service.  But we will get Gr.II and Gr.III promotions late due to inordinate delay.  Due to this our post master will have to face serious consequences in promotion of Senior Post Master Cadre in future.

Let us hope that circle administration will not raise the occasion to remind on this issue by our Association.  Already our young Post Masters have demotivated due to this inordinate delay......
