Views of Odisha Circle on merger of ASP cadre in to PS Gr. B cadre

To
Shri Vilas Ingale,
General Secretary, CHQ

Assistant Superintendents, Posts

Sub:- Merger of ASP cadre in to PS Gr. B cadre- Proposal regarding.

Dear Shri Ingale Ji,

Kindly refer to Odisha Circle Branch letter dated 29/05/2014 in this regard.

Recently on 07/09/2014, the Circle Working Committee of Odisha Circle Branch discussed the issue and unanimously resolved to urge the CHQ not to forget the fact that there is inter- Circle anomaly in promotion of IPs to the post of ASPs, and the promotion to the 75% posts of PS Group-B cadre is from amongst the Inspector Posts on All India seniority basis not from ASPs and, therefore, if the merger is accepted by the Directorate then it should be from the All India seniority in Inspector of Posts Cadre only.

In case the Directorate will not agree to the proposal for merger of ASP cadre in to PS Gr. B cadre then we may reconsider the merger of Inspector Posts and Assistant Superintendent of Posts cadre into one cadre with Head of the Circle as appointing authority for merged cadre to get the Grade Pay of Rs.4600/- for Inspector Posts as proposed vide Directorate’s Letter No.137-89/2013-SPB-II dated 11th October, 2013, and to place the demands for up-gradation of IP/ASP posts to PS Group-B Posts creation of new Postal Sub-Divisions and new Postal Divisions for better promotional avenues of IPs.

        With best regards,
Sincerely yours,

INFORMATION ON THE PARITY OF PAY SCALES MANIFESTS IN POSTS OF A SIMILAR NATURE-DIRECTORATE CALLED FOR REPORTS FROM CIRCLES

No Need to Open Another Bank Account to Avail of Benefits Under Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana (PMJDY);

Department of Financial Services, Ministry of Finance, Government of India has issued instructions that in case people are already holding bank accounts, they need not open another bank account to avail of benefits under Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana (PMJDY). In fact insurance benefits are available through the RuPay Card. The existing account holders can submit an application to the concerned branch to enable them to get a RuPay Debit Card in order to avail of the benefits of insurance under PMJDY. Micro credit limit of Rs. 5000/- can also be extended in existing bank accounts on application depending on the satisfactory conduct of the account. 

There had been complaints from some places about the availability of the Account Opening Forms due to huge rush and certain people taking advantage of such situation. In view of this, an advertisement has been issued in all major Newspapers where the Account Opening Form has been published. Anybody desirous of opening an account can come and take this Application Form to the nearest bank branch/bank mitr for opening the account. This one page Account Opening Form is also available on the website of the Department www.financialservices.gov.in . 

RBI has issued guidelines dated 26th August, 2014, where people who do not have officially valid documents or Aadhaar Numbers can still get bank accounts opened by submitting two (2) copies of signed photographs at the bank branch. However, these accounts will be called small accounts and shall normally be valid for 12 months and shall be continued subject to showing of proof that he/she has applied for any of the officially valid document within 12 months of opening of such ‘Small Account’’. These accounts have certain limitations such as balance at any point of time should not exceed Rs. 50,000/-, total credit in one year should not exceed Rs. one lac, and total withdrawal should not exceed Rs. 10,000/- in a month.

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

It is learnt that Directorate is likely to call for ACRs/APARs of officers in the ZoC for holding of DPC for promotion to the cadre of PS Gr. B in the vacancy year 2014-15 in this week. 

     It is therefore requested to all Circle Secretaries and CHQ office bearers to ask the controlling officers of the IPs of 1990 to 1992 batch to keep ACRs/APARs ready in all respect for dispatch to concerned circle office. As everybody knows that unless ACRs/APARs are ready, DPC can't be held on time. Attested copies of ACRs/APARs for five years prior to 2013-14 (i.e. 2012-13 and previous years) may likely to called for, hence everybody needs to take active part for submission of requisite information to their circle office for timely convening  of DPC. 

     It is also requested to all officers who are in the zone of consideration (OC- 1990 to 1992 batch, SC/ST-1992 & 1993 batch) to ensure completion of their ACRs/APARs in all respect by their controlling authority in this week only.

History of Earlier Pay Commissions in India

Since India’s Independence, seven pay commissions have been set up on a regular basis to review and make recommendations on the work and pay structure of all civil and military divisions of the Government of India.

Historically the Central Government has been setting up the Pay Commissions after a period of almost ten years. This is more of precedence than a statutory requirement. Government is not bound by any law or regulation to set up the 
Pay Commission after ten years.

The objective of the Pay Commission is to bring parity in the salaries and perks of Government Servents with their private sector counterparts and bring a sort of compatibility with the trends in the price rise of different commodities, thus encouraging them to lead an honest life.

The roots of practise of setting up Pay Commissions goes back to British Period when Royal Commissions were set up for various purposes including Pay Revisions– e.g. Aitcheson Commission (1886-87) and Islington Commission (1912-13).

At present India is perhaps the only country where this practice still followed. Even Britishers have long discontinued with this system.

Merger of ASP cadre in to PS Gr.B cadre/cadre restructuring ......Meeting at Directorate

As everybody aware that DOP has already finalized cadre restructuring of Group 'C' cadre on 28/4/2014. CHQ has constantly reminded to Directorate for holding of meeting with the representatives of our Association in connection with cadre restructuring of IP/ASP cadre. 

CHQ has already submitted a proposal of merger of ASP cadre in to PS Gr. B cadre to Directorate on 20/11/2013. The queries raised by Directorate letter under No. 25-35/2011-PE-I dated 19/5/2014 was also quickly replied on 14/6/2014. Now, meeting is likely to be scheduled in the next week for cadre restructuring of IP/ASP cadre. CHQ has already linked up the merger issue with cadre restructuring subject, as the result of 2nd cadre review was not implemented by DOP even though presidential sanction was issued in 1990 for up-gradation of 245 posts to PS Gr. B. Senior members know this issue very well. We have to discuss the workable proposal at Directorate and for the benefit of the cadre.

It is therefore requested to each Circle Branch to submit their fresh proposal if any to GS immediately, or permit CHQ to take decision at their own for the benefit of the cadre and not at individual level.
