Sub :  Regarding holding of Departmental Promotion Committee for promotion to PS Group B post for the year 2017 & 2018.

With due respect kindly refer to this association letter no. CHQ/AIAIASP/Pending/2017 dated 19.02.2018 & 16.03.2018, CHQ/AIAIASP/DPS-PS Gr B/2017 dated 19.02.2018 &  CHQ/AIAIASP/ 2018-2020/03 dated 15.03.2018  regarding holding of Departmental Promotion Committee for promotion to PS Group B posts for the year 2017 and for the year 2018. The members of our Association are highly demotivated due to inordinate delay in convening of DPC for the seniority quota for the year 2017 and 2018.

                As per the provisions of the Postal Services Group B Recruitment ( Amendment) Rules 1993, 75% of the total PS Group B posts are to be filled by promotion from amongst Inspectors of Post Offices and RMS offices and the remaining 19% of the vacancies are to be  filled on the basis of a departmental competitive examination from amongst Inspectors of POs and RMS having 5 years of regular service in the grade and remaining 6% of the vacancies  are to be filled up from  General line officials. Eventually after a gap of more than 1 year & 3 months the department declared the results of the PS Group B held on 18.12.2016. The members apprehend that there would not be any further vacancies to be announced in the 75% DPC quota in the coming two to three years which would delay their legitimate promotional scope.

                The Directorate has also implemented the judgement of Hon’ble Tribunal of Hyderabad dated 10.03.2015 in OA 554/2013,which was subsequently upheld by Hon’ble High Court Hyderabad in WP25931/2015 and by Hon’ble Supreme Court of India In SLP(C) 24725/2017 which has  permanently closed the promotional opportunity of Senior ASPOs who are due for promotion under Seniority Quota. It can be seen  that only few ASPs belonging to 1993 year IP batch have been promoted to PS GR “B” post till date and remaining IPs of 1993 and thereafter are the affected  ones.

                It is bitter truth that even after a lapse of 25 years, IPs of 1993 batch are not promoted, which  reflects  skewed process of promotion to the cadre of IPs/ASPs.  The Association  emphatically request that immediate action may kindly be taken for convening of DPC meeting for seniority quota vacancies to the promotion of PSS Group B and cause early issue of orders. It is also requested that at any point of time , the seniority quota vacancies should NOT be utilised for examination quota.

                It is humbly requested to do  the needful for early convening of DPC meeting and for issue of orders of promotion to the cadre of PS Group “B”.
                                                                                                                    Your Sincerely
                                                                                                            (Rajiv Kumar)
                                                                                                            General Secretary
