Ms Yeshodhara Menon,  
Member (Personnel),
Department of Posts,
Dak Bhavan, Sansad Marg,
New Delhi 110 001.

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

Ref.    :   Postal Directorate  memo No. A-34012/3/2011-DE dated
                             10th April, 2012  
Respected Madam,

          Your kind attention is invited to this Association’s letters of even number dated 3/5/2012 and 19th May, 2012 on the above mentioned subject.

         This Association has already informed Directorate that many Circles have not allowed our members to fill the OMR sheet on the ground that training period spent before induction in IP cadre is not to be reckoned as qualifying service. The second reason being adverse entry like ‘warning’, ‘reprimand’ emerged in last 5 ears’ ACR/APAR, though otherwise their grading in APAR remains between 6-8(very good).

             Since both the reasons of the department are unfounded and against the rules in vogue thereby giving way to litigations. In view of such acts, few members of this Association have knocked the doors of Courts for relief and as such got relief. Hon’ble CAT Ernakulam Bench OA No. 380/2012 and 232/2012 filed at Bangalore CAT bench may kindly be referred to. It is apparent that, other eligible and analogous IPs/ASPs who are not allowed on the above grounds have approached Directorate through different representations to allow them to appear in the examination. Their representations are still pending for decision and as such, the circles will not be in a position to allow them to fill OMR sheets. Not allowing all eligible even those who have not approached the court will be against the natural justice and infringement to article 14 & 16 of the Constitution. It will also be discrimination to other eligible similar situated candidates who are not party to the OA.

In view of the above, your kind honour is once again requested to arrange for withdrawal of the notification issued to conduct the PS Gr. “B” examination scheduled to be held on 3rd June 2012 and hold the said examination only after the revision of Recruitment Rules and other prerequisites such as qualifying service and grading etc.

          Favourable action is solicited.
Yours sincerely,

(Vilas Ingale)
General Secretary
