Letter to Secretary (Posts) regarding withdrawing Mail Overseers from Sub Divisions by PMG Central Region

No. GS/IPASP/Mail-Overseer/KL/2013                                   dated  26/3/2013

Ms P. Gopinath,
Secretary (Posts),
Department of Posts,
Dak Bhavan, Sansad Marg,
New Delhi 110001.  

Sub: Withdrawing Mail Overseers from Sub Divisions by PMG Central Region Kochi. 

 Respected Madam,  

          Circle Secretary of IPASP Association Kerala branch has informed that PMG Central Region Kochi (Kerala) have issued unilateral orders for withdrawal of Mail Overseers from various Sub Divisions on the plea that they are to be used for improving delivery. As per information available one MO each has been withdrawn from Cherthala, Kayamkulam, Thrissur and Changanassery Sub Divisions and both Mail Overseers have been withdrawn from Tripunithura, Kochi and Ernakulam Sub Divisions.  

          This Association would like to bring your kind notice that the duties of Mail Overseers are broadly elaborated in Rule 343 to 355 of Postal Manual Vol. VIII and according to that only the post of mail Overseers are attached to Sub Divisions. You would be agree that, now a day’s work load of Mail Overseers has indeed increased manifold consequent upon introduction of RPLI / MGNREGS / Opening of new Savings accounts in BOs / Sale of BD products and escort of cash remittance for quick payment of MGNERGS etc. 

Besides, Mail Overseers are also allotted quarterly verification work to curb frauds etc. Withdrawal of Mail Overseers from Sub Divisions would means giving open invitation to frauds at B.O. level. But PMG Central Region Kochi has taken unilateral decision at his own level and withdrawn the post of Mail Overseers from Sub Divisions that too without going through the veracity of events and carrying out any review.  

             It is therefore requested to your kind honour to intervene in the matter and issue instructions to PMG Central Region Kochi to restore the orders of withdrawal of Mail Overseers from Sub Divisions immediately else our members should not be held responsible for any act of misdeed on the part of GDSs.      

            Thanking You,
                                                                                            Yours faithfully,
(Vilas Ingale)
General Secretary
