FNPO TAKEN AN IMTEM IN FOUR MONTHLY MEETING WITH DG (P) WHICH WAS HELD ON 29-11-12 AS 2 (d)
Cheque Power, Disciplinary power and Recruitment power to Postmaster Grade I officials- with channel of powersAll the Postmaster Grade offices (previously Unit Offices) which are previously vested with Cheque Power, Disciplinary Powers, and Recruitment of GDS under their unit are now deprived off the facilities or powers? Some of the divisional heads are clarifying that though it is a unit office previously, the Postmaster cadre officials are not having cheque power, Disciplinary powers, Recruitment powers in their unit also. Due to withdrawal of cheque power to postmaster Grade I officials, though they account with bank, the customers are facing inconvenience /delay in closing of accounts at Grade I offices which is against the norms of Project Arrow and Citizens Charter. If it is addressed to the Head Postmaster for Cheque in respect of closures more than Rs. 20000 it takes minimum of 2 days (Transit Time) for closure of account even at Grade I offices. It is not an inevitable situation in the present market.
