No. CHQ/AIAIASP/DPC/2014                                       Dated :       20/1/2014.

Ms. P. Gopinath, 
Director General,
Department of Posts,
Dak Bhawan, Sansad Marg,
New Delhi 110 001.  

Sub:           Delay in holding DPCs in the Department of Posts. 

Respected Madam, 

I intend to bring to your kind attention one of the areas, where delays are occurring in holding of DPCs which has hammered all the prospectus of IP cadre and are virtually motivated not to promote 80% of the staff to JTS. 

2.       In this connection, attention is invited to the consolidated instructions on DPC, re-circulated vide DOP&T’s OM No. NO.22011/1/2011-Estt(D) dated 13-12-2013, which, interalia, provides that DPCs should be convened at regular intervals to draw up panels which could be utilized for effecting promotions/against vacancies occurring during the course of a given year. These instructions enjoin upon the concerned authorities to initiate action to fill up the existing as well as anticipated vacancies well before the expiry of the previous panel.  

3.       According to the standing instructions, action for convening the DPCs should be initiated before the commencement of the vacancy year and that DPC’s should be held against future vacancies. Contrary to these instructions, in Department of Posts, IP/ASPs/PS Group “B” are made to officiate for years together. At later stage particularly during Internal Check Inspection all the substantial benefits on which the official have worked are ordered to be withdrawn and recovery allowed quoting DOP&T instructions not to allow officiating arrangement for more than 11 month particularly when the official have worked on the officiating posts continuously that result in considerable frustration amongst officials and this also adversely affect morale of employees. It is reported that DPC, for the vacancy year 2012-13 and 2013-14 is still to be convened in JTS cadre, Supplementary DPC in Group “B” for 2013-14. Once this is done only thereafter circles will be able to convene DPC for ASP cadre.  

4.       In view of the above, it is requested that suitable orders may kindly be passed to put in place immediately and advance planning is done to convene the DPC for JTS for vacancy years 2012-2013 and 2013-14 and supplementary DPC for PS Gr. “B”. In future a panel should be prepared in time so that the extant orders on the subject are followed, both in letter and spirit. 

          With regards,
Yours sincerely, 

(Vilas Ingale)
General Secretary
