Grant of Dearness Allowance wef 01.07.2016 - DOP Order


AIAPS has submitted the Reminder - I for PSS Group B Recruitment rules revision

To,
        The Honorable Secretary Posts,
        Department of Posts,
        Dak Bhawan, Sansad Marg,
        New Delhi – 110001

Respected sir,

        Subject : Revision/Amendment in Recruitment Rules for the post of Postal Service Group ‘B’ and Sr. Postmaster cadre- reg

Ref 1: No.9-14/2010-SPG dated at Dak Bhawan, Sansad Marg the 30th May 2016
Ref 2: This association even letter no AIAPS/GS/CHQ Corr/15-16 dated at New Delhi 20th June 2016 (Copy is enclosed for the quick reference)

1. Vide above reference 1, Postal directorate is itself sought the stake holders to submit the suggestions and comments regarding revision/amendment in PSS Group B recruitment rules to conduct the exams for the vacancies arising from 2016-2017.


2. Proposed PSS Group B recruitment rules are having very meager promotional opportunities to Supervisory cadre officials but face of the department is lying upon the supervisors and Postmasters only since they are only directly implementing all the flagship projects of our department. 

3. Vide above reference 2, this association is submitted the detailed representation with analytical informations to allocate 75% quota of PSS Group B posts to LSG/Postmaster Cadre line supervisory officials along with Inspector posts officials by LDCE as like 75% quota of LDCE posts of Senior Postmaster (which is purely in the hierarchy of Postmaster cadre line) are allocated to the inspector cadre officials.

4. The proposed PSS Group B recruitment rules and the existing Senior Postmaster cadre rules are containing the following number of posts.
Table :
Cadre
No of officials
No of PSS Group B posts proposed
(total no of 750 posts)
No of Senior postmaster posts allotted(total no of 116 posts)
Total no of PSS Gr.B and Senior Postmaster posts
Ratio

IP/ASP line officials
4011
727
87
814
1 Post for 5 IP/ASP officials
LSG/PM cadre line officials
40563 (37431LSG + 3132 PM cadre)
23
29
Just 52 posts
Just 1 post for 780 supervisory officials


5. In the same time, this association is keenly watching the legal litigations filed by the Postmaster Cadre, inspector cadre, and as well as LSG cadre officers at various legal forums throughout the nation for their promotional posts quota disputes resulting acute stagnation in conducting PSS Group B exams and as well as Senior Postmaster cadre exams. 

6. PSS Group B exams and as well as Senior Postmaster exams could not be conducted for the last 4 years.

7. PSS Group B LDCE exams called for vide department directorate letter no F.No. A-34012/8/2016-DE Dated at Dak Bhawan, Sansad Marg the 07th October 2016. This association came to know that for that exam too, some officials are filed the OA at various CATs. SLP filed at the honorable Supreme Court is also yet to be numbered.

8. In this juncture because of not conducting the above LDCE examinations, approximately 337 Group B gazette - Superintendent of Posts and Senior Postmaster cadre posts are remaining unfilled and public service is badly affected. Postmaster cadre, LSG line and IP cadre officials are also frustrated without any LDCE promotional opportunities.

9. As mentioned in our Reference 2, Till 4th CPC, Inspector cadre line and Supervisory cadre are equally nourished with the promotional opportunities. But after the wake up of TBOP/BCR and MACP I/II/III, LSG promotions are badly delayed and those officials have got their required eligibility service of LSG only during their final spell of service (Nearly after 50 years of age). So During the 5th and 6TH CPC timings, most of the Supervisory officials have not fought against the equal opportunities since they have got their required eligibility service during the end of their service. That time Inspector cadre officials are applied enough to increase their promotional opportunities. 

        10. Because of the above mentioned inequalities, meager ratio to supervisory officials and legal disputes department is facing spider web complications.  So this association is also came to the flexibility in our previous requests of reference 2, with the following revised prayers for the better public service by conducting the LDCE exams of PSS Group B exams and Senior Postmaster cadre posts without any legal disputes. All the other analytical informations are hold good in the reference 2 of this association.

a.   75% of Postal Service Group B posts (562 posts) may kindly be filled by the Assistant Superintendent of Posts officials after completing 6 years of ASP service through seniority cum fitness as like in the relevant recruitment rules.

b.   75% of Senior Postmaster posts (87 posts) may kindly be filled by the Postmaster Grade III officials after completing 2 years of service in Postmaster Grade III. Senior Postmaster Cadre recruitment rule has to be revised. 7th CPC also suggested to revise the recruitment rules of Senior Postmaster posts. (This association will submit the required proposal shortly)

c.    Remaining 25% LDCE quota of Postal Service Group B posts (188 posts) may kindly be filled by open competition among LSG line, Postmaster cadre Line and as well as Inspector cadre line officials after completing 5 years service in IP line and LSG cum Postmaster cadre line.

d.   Remaining 25% LDCE quota of Senior Postmaster posts (29 posts) may kindly be filled by open competition among LSG line, Postmaster cadre Line and as well as Inspector cadre line officials after completing their 5 years service in IP line and LSG cum Postmaster cadre line. (This association will submit a detailed proposal shortly to revise the Senior Postmaster post recruitment rules). 

11. The above proposal will eradicate all the disputes arose and will help to conduct the LDCE exams smoothly without any legal disputes. It is worthy to mention here that for both Supervisory and Inspector line, qualification is one and the same i.e., 5 years of Postal Assistant Service so nourishing one better and treating another worse would have been creating the inequality among identical cadres. So both Supervisory LSG/PM cadre line and Administrative IP/ASP line should be equally nourished with equal opportunities.

12. A line in reply would be highly solicited for the circulation of the Promising Supervisory cadre officers of our department.

Thanking you.

AIAPS HAS TAKEN UP THE CASE TO JOIN AS THE STAFF SIDE ANOMALY COMMITTEE TO REPRESENT POSTMASTER CADRE AND SUPERVISORY CADRE ISSUES

To,
        The Chairman,
        Departmental Anomaly committee
        Department of Posts,
        Dak Bhawan, Sansad Marg,
        New Delhi – 110001

Respected sir,

        Subject: Setting up Departmental Anomaly Committee of Department of Posts

Reference: No. 6-1/2016-PCC dated at Dak Bhawan, Sansad Marg the 03rd November 2016 (Copy enclosed for the quick reference)

        Vide above reference departmental anomaly committee was constituted with only the recognized federated association office bearers as staff side without other recognized unions and associations representatives.

Beyond above federated unions, remaining cadre officials are also there and they are also having their grave anomalies arising out of 7th CPC implementation. Because of non-availability of those cadre representatives in the anomaly committee, every time during the implementation pay commissions, some anomalies are remained unsettled for the decades resulting exact purpose of setting up the anomaly committee could not be fulfilledSo their cadre representatives are also has to be added as the staff side of the departmental anomaly committee to represent their cadre anomalies.


Vide postal directorate order no 13/28/68 S.R dated 21stApril 1970 This “All India association of Postal Supervisors(GL)” is purely recognized staff side association by the government of India and having the concern towards redressing the grievances of 40563 postal supervisory officials(37431 General line supervisory cadre officials plus 3132 Postmaster cadre line supervisory officials).

        So I request the respected Chairman of the departmental anomaly committee to add the recognized associations/unions general secretaries in addition to the recognized federations for the constructive implementation of 7th CPC without any anomalies.


Thanking you.

Directorate Order - Streamlining the system of handling of COD articles in case of non-availability of electronic data and for TNF locations

Now, you will get all PF, pension dues on or before retirement date

New Delhi | November 2, 2016

Your provident fund (PF) and Employee Pension Scheme (EPS) dues will be paid by the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) on or before the day you retire. A decision to this effect has been taken by EPFO and instructions have been issued by the Central Provident Fund Commissioner, V P Joy on Tuesday to all its offices as a follow up the directions received from Prime Minister Narendra Modiat the recent PRAGATI review meeting held on October 26. The PRAGATI (Pro-Active Governance And Timely Implementation) was held to reviewing programmes and projects of the central and state governments.

“It has been decided that PF and pension payments to members of EPF Scheme 1952 and EPS 1995 are made on the date of retirement itself,” Joy has said in his communication to EPFO offices.

The move comes a day after the CPFC issued instructions regarding settlement in respect of death cases on priority within 7 days.



Joy has instructed EPFO offices to take several steps to ensure payment of dues on the day of retirement. These include:

Generate a monthly list of retiring EPF/EPS members attaining the age of superannuation three months in advance by concerned offices. This should be communicated to the concerned members and their respective employers.

The employers should be requested to make payment of contributions in advance in respect of such retiring employees one month in advance of the date of their retirement.

A complete set of PF and pension claim form along with the communication to fill up the forms and submit to the concerned office complete in all respect at least 14 days prior to the date of retirement should be sent to the retiring employees

The PRO and officials in the Facilitation Centre should be instructed to scrutinise the claim forms received in respect of retirement cases and guide the claimants for submission of all required documents in one attempt only.

For this purpose an official trained and deputed in the facilitation centre will receive the retirement claims. Proper display in regard be made on the seat/counter “please contact for retirement cases’ in Hindi, Regional Language and English.

All such retirement claims should be stamped in bold ‘ Retirement claims – Top Priority” The PF claim settlement amount must invariably be credited to the member accounts on or before the date of retirement.
