Brief note of pending issues that will form part of meeting are as follow:     

1.   Issue of combined seniority list of Inspector Posts cadre.  

The combined All India Seniority List of Inspectors of Posts from the year 2000 onwards was not prepared, released and not placed on India Post website.  This issue was importunately pushed by this Association since last several years and also discussed with Hon’ble Secretary (P) on 6/2/2013 and it was assured in the meeting that the seniority list would be made available at the earliest, but Directorate has only released seniority list for the year 1998 and 1999 only. It is therefore requested to kindly direct SPG Division to start the preparation of seniority list of remaining years and made available on India Post Web site.

2.   Inter Circle Rule 38 transfer cases of Inspector Posts.

The Directorate vide letter No. A.34013/01/2009-DE/SPB-II dated 5.2.2010 issued guidelines providing for transfer of lady Inspectors of Posts against Direct Recruit / Departmental examination vacancy based on her selection in the respective examination and there after detailed guidelines for Inter-Circle-transfer of Inspectors of Posts under Rule 38 of P&T Manual Vol. IV were issued under No. 141-177/2009-SPB-II dated 14th December 2010. In the said guidelines it is mentioned that the CPMsG of the Circle where the Inspectors of Posts are working would be competent to permit such transfer in consultation with the CPMG of the Circle where the transfer is sought for by the individual. Further, it is also mentioned that the CPMsG should take a considerable view in consultation with their counterpart while considering the request of Inspectors of Posts candidates for transfer to their Home / nearby Circle under Rule 38. Department has further issued instructions to all Heads of Circles under Directorate memo No. 141-114/2012-SPB.II dated 7th May 2012 regarding disposal of the representation for transfer of the circle cadre officials. This Association has pointed out time to time details of several pending cases at various circles to Directorate and requested to reiterate the instructions to all Heads of Circles to consider the Inter-Circle –transfer cases of Inspectors of Posts on the basis of above instructions, but very few Circles have positively responded. The scheme of allotment of surplus qualified candidates has already been quashed out by Directorate in 2010. It is therefore requested to issue instructions once again to all Heads of Circles to consider all pending Inter-Circle transfer cases under Rule 38 of Inspectors of Posts immediately against the vacant posts or on deputation basis in case of non-availability of vacancies.  As per the discussion had with your predecessor, this Association has forwarded the consolidated list of surplus qualified IPs to Directorate under letter No. GS/AIAIASP/Rule-38/TFR-IP/2014 dated 20/1/2014.

3.    Merger of Assistant Superintendents Posts Cadre to PS Gr. B cadre.
This Association has already submitted a detailed proposal on merger of ASP cadre to PS Gr. B cadre to Hon’ble Secretary (Posts) and as well as to Hon’ble Member (P) under letter No. GS/ AIAIASP / Merger-ASP/2013 dated 20/11/2013. It is learnt that Estt Division of Directorate has called the requisite information from all circles but proposal is not materialized till this date.         

4.   Revision of monetary ceiling of briefcase/ladies purse for official  purposes

Directorate vide letter No. F.No. 15-1/2011-GA dated 26.10.2012 has circulated revised monetary ceiling limit for purchase of briefcases/ ladies purses for official purposes for the officers working in different capacities in Directorate. Whereas similar situated officers working in Circles are being deprived of this revision by Circles. Thus the old ceilings up to limit of Rs.1000/- is still in vogue in most of all the Circles.

IPs/ASPs who are entitled to procure brief cases/ladies purses of their own choice from any of the private/ public outlet are asked to purchase the same from market but thereafter given reimbursement of Rs.1000/- whatsoever cost of the said purchase maybe. No matter even if it does not commensurate to the market price too. 

          It is therefore humbly requested to your kind honour to pass orders to all circles/regions with the direction to maintain uniformity at all levels as per revised limit contained in Directorate letter ibid. If needs be copy of Directorate letter dated 26.10.2012 may kindly be ordered to circulate amongst all so that circles may not have any excuse to adhere to the prescribed limit. 

We hope that your honour will give us an appointment on any convenient date in this month for at least for half an hour. Necessary relief arrangement orders may also be issued well in time.  

                    With respectful regards,
                                                                                                   Yours sincerely,

(Vilas Ingale)
General Secretary
