Letter to Secretary (Posts) i/c/w irregular issue of transfer orders in ASP cadre in Punjab Circle

No. GS/AIAIPASP/Misc/Punjab/2017                               dated 11/7/2017

Shri A N Nanda,
Secretary (Posts)
Department of Posts,
Dak Bhawan, Sansad Marg,
New Delhi 110 001

Subject: Irregular issue of transfer orders in ASP cadre in Punjab Circle. 

Respected Madam,
 This Association would like to bring to your kind notice that postal administration of Punjab Circle has issued irregular and untimely transfer orders of IP/ASP cadre under the phrase of ‘interest of service’ and that too ignoring the Directorate directives issued on Rotational Transfer policy. While the IP/ASPs are regarded as the back bone of the department in implementation of policy but at the same time they are subjected to harassment by handing them transfer orders according to sweet will of the Administration.

2.       This Association would like to further bring to your kind notice that, before issue of Rotational Transfers neither the willingness of the concerned officers are called for nor vacancies were notified. Without any proper and justified reasons officers were transferred to farther places before completion of their post tenures. Chief PMG, Punjab Circle, who was under transfer to New Delhi on deputation to Agriculture Ministry (relieved on 10.07.17), before his relief CO has issued memo under No. STB/9-13/2012-II dated 07.07.2017, wherein 7 ASPs were transferred and three IPs were promoted on adhoc basis. Out of these 7, only 2 ASPs had completed their tenure period, while all others were in their mid tenure and some of them had just completed one year of tenure.

3.       Austerity measures were not adhered to while issuing adhoc promotion orders. One IP of Patiala Division on adhoc promotion was posted in Chandigarh Division on Government cost while there was vacant post of ASP in Patiala. One IP of Circle office on adhoc promotion was adjusted after upgrading the same post, downgrading the sub divisional post having HSG I office under its jurisdiction. This is an unprecedented example of adhoc promotion in the Department, where post of senior  IP (ASP Jagraon Sub Division) was downgraded to adjust junior adhoc promote (PG/RTI CO upgraded to ASP cadre) and senior IP was not promoted to ASP cadre on adhoc basis to keep check over the functioning  of Post Offices falling in the Sub Division. Apparently adhoc promotions have been resorted to by CPMG Punjab without considering the functional and operational requirement of the post. Such type of irregularities at the Administration demoralizes the cadre particularly when IP/ASPs worked hard in the adversaries.

4.       It is therefore kindly requested to issue necessary instructions to Chief PMG Punjab Circle (Statutory charge with CPMG Delhi Circle, Rest duties with PMG, Punjab Region) to consider and cancel the transfer orders which were issued without completion of post tenure of the officer.

          Hoping for a positive response at the earliest.
Yours sincerely,

(Vilas Ingale)
General Secretary
