Subject: Review of result of Inspector Posts Examination 2007 and 2008.

Respected Madam,

Since IP/ASP Association is not getting helpful response from Directorate to settle even small demands covered under the rules, I am writing you with hope that your kind honour will take action to uphold the law that CPMsG are overlooking for their self interest. Most of the circles have not still taken up the proposal showing correctness of review results of Inspector Posts Examination held in the year 2007 and 2008.

Directorate vide Memo No. A.34013/03/2007-DE (Pt.) dated 16.7.2010 and A.34013/01/2009-DE dated 19.9.2009 has declared the final results of Inspector Posts Examination held for the year 2007 and 2008 respectively. While going through the results it was noticed that following number of surplus vacancies in SC/ST categories after declaration of Inspector Posts Examination results are available for taking up the proposal for review:

IP/ASP Association further brought to your kind notice that, as most of the circles have not taken the proposal for review results of Inspector Posts Examination 2007 and 2008 with Directorate, hence information was obtain through RTI to streamline the position. Copy of RTI application and reply to that are enclosed as Annexure –I and Annexure –II respectively.

          Apparently proposals for review results of Inspector Posts Examination 2007 and 2008 have not been submitted to Directorate by Assam, Chhattisgarh, Himachal Pradesh, J&K, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Odisha, Punjab, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal Circles for the reasons best known to them. Resultantly, a large number of mismatches of IP/ASP vacancies due to which our cadre is the most effected.   

          It is therefore requested to ascertain reasons as to why the above particularized circles failed to take up review proposals timely to Directorate and association hope that your assistance will definitely prove helpful to resolve the issue and circles will work as per law so that justice may prevail.

          Hoping for a positive action and line in reply.

Yours sincerely,

 Sd/-

General Secretary

Copy forwarded for information and necessary action to :


The Chief Postmaster General, Assam / Chhattisgarh / Himachal Pradesh / J&K / Jharkhand / Karnataka / Madhya Pradesh / Maharashtra / Odisha / Punjab / Tamil Nadu and West Bengal Circle.

May raise tax exemption limit further: Arun Jaitley


NEW DELHI: Finance minister Arun Jaitley on Saturday said that he does not favour burdening the salaried and middle-class with more taxes but would go after the evaders in widening the net.


In fact, he would encourage more money being put in the pockets of tax payers that will lead to spending and collection of more indirect taxes.

"This widening of the tax base. What does it mean? I pay the same indirect tax as my attendant. Our volume of consumption may be different. So everybody is paying indirect taxes.

"And literally almost half your taxes are indirect taxes today. He pays excise, he pays customs duty, he pays service tax. Now as far as income tax is concerned, to bring those who evade tax is widening the tax net, I am all for it," the minister said in an interaction with PTI journalists at PTI headquarters.

He was replying to a question on whether his budget would look at widening the tax base to maximise revenue.

Jaitley, who will be presenting his first full fledged budget in February, said that in his last budget he had increased the tax exemption limit from Rs 2 lakh to Rs 2.5 lakh and would even raise it further if he had more money.

"After all what are we talking about Rs 2.5 lakh today means, taking all the deductions which we have given, somebody up to Rs 3.5-4 lakh does not have to pay tax. So we have reached the situation broadly.

"One earning Rs 35,000-40,000 per month, if the person puts some money for savings, (he) won't have to pay tax. But people falling in this bracket say that they don't save anything with salary of Rs 35,000-40,000 (with) the present cost of living, the transport cost, the fees of children and so on," Jaitley said.

Therefore, the minister said, he was against reducing the exemptions to widen the tax net. "Then that's not my approach," he added.

"So I am quite willing, if I had my way and I had more money in my pocket, I would like to expand. But today the revenue position is challenging. Last time I gave several concessions, which were actually beyond my means.

"But it's all fine to bring those who evade tax under the tax net. But to bring this vulnerable section into the tax net, that can't be the policy today. In fact if you put additional money in their pockets and allow them to spend, then I collect correspondingly more indirect taxes so I will rather encourage more economic activity."

On black money within the country, he said: "It is huge quantity and more easily traceable. Because you go to real estate, you go to land, you go to mining, you go to jewellery, you go to luxury goods, you will find the domestic (black money). You go to educational institutions, you will find it there. Therefore to trace out the buyers and the recipients is also easy."

Special Cover on Judicial Complex at Muvattupuzha - 17th October 2014.

Muvattupuzha town is named after the Muvattupuzha river which flows through it. The name is made up of three Malayalam words: 'Moonnu', which stands for 'three', 'aaru' - Small River, and 'puzha', which also means river. 'Aaru' is a word that is usually used for rivers in the southern half of Kerala, while the term 'puzha' is used in the northern parts. The three rivers in this case are the Kothamangalam river or Kothayaar, Kaliyar and Thodupuzha aaru, which merge to form a single river. This place is called 'Thriveni Sangamam' in Malayalam which means 'the point of confluence of three rivers'.

The Judicial Complex at Muvattupuzha, the Cradle of Triveni Sangamam - actually a monument, which reveals the golden reign of the Kings of Travancore, which is proudly and prestigiously kept up even today, since last 135 years.

Shri Oommen Chandy, Chief Minister of Kerala inaugurated new Muvattupuzha Judicial Complex. A Special Cover on New Judicial Complex of Muvattupuzha was issued at Muvattupuzha on 17th October 2014. 

DPC for the promotion to the cadre of PS Gr. B for the year 2014-15.....updates!!!

The list of 39 officers who are in the Zone of Consideration for PS Group B DPC for the vacancy year 2014-15 but their information not received at Directorate was published on blog on 19th November. Directorate has not received any information/documents from any of the Circles in respect of these officers. It is, therefore, very difficult to Directorate to proceed further. Hence it is therefore finally requested to all Circle Secretaries, CHQ Office Bearers and members of this Association that, if any of these officers are working in your Circle/or if any information is available in the Circle, requisite documents/information relating to these officers may be sent to Directorate through Circle and that too today itself to enable Directorate to convene the said DPC at the earliest. Yesterday, GS has ascertained information of 8 to 10 officers and submitted to Directorate. GS has also issued SMS and telephoned to all CS to give top priority to this issue, as DPC is already delayed for which Directorate is not responsible. First Supplementary DPC will be held and then regular DPC for 2014. 

Govt plans to use India Post's postmen to educate people on schemes and policy - NEWS

New Delhi: The government is planning to use India Post's 1.55 lakh-strong branch network to reach out to citizens in far flung and backward areas and educate them about the various policies, schemes and incentives.

The ministry of information and broadcasting runs various awareness programmes for the citizens leveraging the Internet and the social media.

However, these initiatives are still out of the reach of many who live in backward and far flung areas there is no connectivity, sources said.

"This category of population is sizable and within the reach of post offices. I&B ministry can design programmes region-wise, which can then be used by the postman to go to these areas and educate the people," a source said.

The idea is to utilise the huge network of India Posts' post offices across the country, especially to reach out to people in areas not connected with the Internet, and educate them about the government's policies, schemes and incentives, the sources added.

With the world's largest postal network, India Post has about 1.55 lakh post offices spread across the country. On an average, a post office serves an area of 21.21 sq km and a population of 7,175 people.

Besides, postman can also be used for directly collecting feedback from the people in rural areas on various policies and schemes, sources added.

"Also digital boards and panels can be set up at the post offices across these areas to educate people on not just schemes and policies, but also on issues related to health and education," they said.

The Task Force set up by Prime Minister Narendra Modi is already holding consultations in this regard with the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.

Modi has set up the Task Force to leverage the postal network in India to enhance the role of India Posts in financial inclusion, among other services and it is expected to submit its report by year-end.

The Task Force includes the Department of Posts Secretary Kavery Banerjee, Telecom Secretary Rakesh Garg, Department of Electronics and IT Secretary R S Sharma, Rural Development Secretary L C Goyal and former SEBI Chairman G N Bajpai.

Former Cabinet Secretary TSR Subramanian is the Chairman of the Task Force.
