Letter from General Secretary to Secretary (Posts).

No. CHQ/IPASP/PS Gr. B/2012                                  Dated :        3/5/2012.

Ms. Manjula Prasher
Director General,
Department of Posts,
Dak Bhavan, New Delhi 110 001.

Subject   :  Limited Departmental Competitive Examination for promotion to the      
                  cadre of PS Gr. B 2012. 

Ref.         :  Dte letter No. A-34012/3/2011-DE dated 10th April, 2012.

Respected Madam,

The department has issued orders vide No.  A- 34012/6/2011-DE dated 10-4-2012 scheduling PS Group ‘B’ examination to be held on 3rd June 2012 without notifying the number of vacancies and other pre-requisites for conducting exam to keep these orders under the ambit of set rules. The department is also not acting as per recruitment rules framed and notified. Madam, you will agree that PS Group ‘B’ Recruitment Rules 1987 amended from time to time are still in force and without amendment of these rules, the Postmaster Recruitment Rules, 2010 can not come into force. It is understood that 116 posts earmarked for Sr. Postmaster are to be carved out from the total 866 posts of PS Group ‘B’ with no intention to create new post to bring Postmaster Recruitment Rules, 2010 in force without amending  PS Group ‘B’ Recruitment  Rules.
              This Association vide letter No. CHQ /PS Gr. B/2011 dated 04.07.2011 gave a detailed proposal regarding distribution of quota under each category to the Department for consideration and implementation in the interest of both IP Line and General Line officials but nothing has been done by the Department in this regard so far. Now, again the department has notified the examination without amending Recruitment Rules that is not in the spirit of justice. In this, regard Dte. order No. 11-15/2007-SPG dated 7-01-2009 issued consequent upon decision of OA No. 657/HP/2007 refers. The recently announced OA No. 399/PB/2011 has orders to promote IPs under respective quota only.

In view of above facts, both the examination viz PS Group “B” and Sr. Postmaster should only be conducted as and when a vacancy arises under the respective quota after amendment of Recruitment Rules. The ASPs/ HSG-I IP line Postmaster should also be allowed to appear in both examination for greater justice of the cadre that is born on the same gradation list and IP that is the feeder cadre for further promotion for all purposes and not ASP/HSG-I which is simply a non functional post. It is therefore requested to kindly withdraw the notification issued to conduct the PS Group ‘’B” examination.
Yours sincerely,
(Vilas Ingale)
General Secretary
