  1. Dear sir,

    This is to tell about the grade pay upgradation issue again.. It is a fact that the finance ministry is opposing GP 4600 to IP because of existence of ASP cadre in our department and its non existence in other organisations. if IP and ASPs are merged what will happen. Our promotion prospects are meager and only 866 PS group-B posts are available for the merged cadre. Moreover the senior ASPs will have the resentment also regarding their degrading to IP. Merging of ASP with SP will create functional problems. So I propose that in order to vanish the ASP cadre the nomenclature of ASP may be changed to Superintendent when giving GP 4800 consequent on the upgradation of IP's GP to 4600. The existing PS Group-B should be merged with JTS Group-A. This will give more promotional post to the proposed Supdt (name changed ASP posts) posts and all officials in the IP/ASP/ and present PS Group-B cadre will be benefited out of this. For this the IPO association will have to join hand with Group-B association during the cadre restructuring discussion, for the merger of PS group-B with JTS group-A for making room for changing the nomenclature of ASP to SP with GP upgraded to 4800.
