Limited Departmental Competitive Examination for

No. GS/AIAIASP/PS Gr. B/2012                                 dated :       25th May, 2012

Ms Yeshodhara Menon,  
Member (Personnel),
Department of Posts,
Dak Bhavan, Sansad Marg,
New Delhi 110 001.

              Subject : Limited Departmental Competitive Examination for
              promotion to the  cadre of PS Gr. B for the year 2012.

Ref.    :   Postal Directorate  memo No. A-34012/3/2011-DE dated
                             10th April, 2012  
Respected Madam,

          Your kind attention is invited to this Association’s letters of even number dated 3/5/2012 and 19th May, 2012 on the above mentioned subject.

         This Association has already informed Directorate that many Circles have not allowed our members to fill the OMR sheet on the ground that training period spent before induction in IP cadre is not to be reckoned as qualifying service. The second reason being adverse entry like ‘warning’, ‘reprimand’ emerged in last 5 ears’ ACR/APAR, though otherwise their grading in APAR remains between 6-8(very good).

             Since both the reasons of the department are unfounded and against the rules in vogue thereby giving way to litigations. In view of such acts, few members of this Association have knocked the doors of Courts for relief and as such got relief. Hon’ble CAT Ernakulam Bench OA No. 380/2012 and 232/2012 filed at Bangalore CAT bench may kindly be referred to. It is apparent that, other eligible and analogous IPs/ASPs who are not allowed on the above grounds have approached Directorate through different representations to allow them to appear in the examination. Their representations are still pending for decision and as such, the circles will not be in a position to allow them to fill OMR sheets. Not allowing all eligible even those who have not approached the court will be against the natural justice and infringement to article 14 & 16 of the Constitution. It will also be discrimination to other eligible similar situated candidates who are not party to the OA.

In view of the above, your kind honour is once again requested to arrange for withdrawal of the notification issued to conduct the PS Gr. “B” examination scheduled to be held on 3rd June 2012 and hold the said examination only after the revision of Recruitment Rules and other prerequisites such as qualifying service and grading etc.

          Favourable action is solicited.
Yours sincerely,

(Vilas Ingale)
General Secretary

Limited Departmental Competitive Examination for promotion to the cadre of PS Gr. B for the year 2012.

No. GS/AIAIASP/PS Gr. B/2012                             dated 19st May, 2012

Ms Manjula Prasher,
Director General,
Department of Posts,
Dak Bhavan, Sansad Marg,
New Delhi 110 001.

Subject : Limited Departmental Competitive Examination for   
              promotion to the  cadre of PS Gr. B for the year 2012.

Ref.   :   Postal Directorate  memo No. A-34012/3/2011-DE dated
    10th April, 2012  
Respected Madam,

          Kindly refer to this Association letter of even number dated 3/5/2012 (copy enclosed) on the above mentioned subject.

         This Association would like to bring to your kind notice that many of our members who have received any adverse within a span of five years and few members induction training period spent before entering in IP cadre was not counted as qualifying service are not allowed to fill the OMR sheet and even not given opportunity by providing kit thereby making them ineligible to appear for the said examination.
           As per the GOI Instructions contained in Rule 11(21) of CCS (CCA) Rules-1965, an official can be admitted to the examination if though the official is under suspension or disciplinary case is contemplated but here the official having good record and let off with warning  by virtue of his minor lapse has been debarred by Circles.  Moreover, the condition and procedure governing the selection for promotion to Group ‘B’ posts are given in the relevant para of a set procedure that cannot be ignored.

          Regarding condition and procedure governing LDCE, the provisions of relevant Recruitment Rules and administrative instructions issued from time to time needs to be referred to. It is not understood why the Department is going against the rules to promote officials of their choice without any healthy competition. Under such circumstances nobody will own responsibility because, madam you can see that in our Department ‘warning’ is a meagre issue and is imposed even without wrong doing.

          It is pertinent to mention here that Directorate vide letter no 23-1/2012-PE-II dated 10-5-2012 has called for comments of Circles to revisit the norms for creation of new postal divisions and up-gradation of existing Class-II Divisions into Class-I Divisions. This will again disturb established arrangement. It is not understood why department is inclined to conduct examination without completion of the prerequisites.

          Furthermore, the department is in the process of amending Recruitment Rules and there will be definite variation in number of vacancies under each quota. That is why the Department could not calculate and advertise number of vacancies for the given examination. The new casting will definitely disturb the present settled position. This Association therefore request that in order to make the entire process transparent, our Association should be consulted before the revision of Recruitment Rules and other related issues such as debarring the officials from examination so that our members are not taken as surprised.

          This Association further brings to your kind notice that, PS Group ‘B’ Recruitment Rules are not revised since years together and as per the clause 3.1.5 of Department of Personnel and Training OM No. AB-14017/48/2010-Estt (RR) dated 31st December, 2010 “The Recruitment Rules should be reviewed once in 5 years with a view to effecting such changes as are necessary to bring them in conformity with the changed position, including additions to or reduction in the strength of the lower and higher level posts”. This Association has already submitted the detailed proposal under letter dated 4/7/2011 regarding distribution of quota for PS Gr. B Examination and Sr. Postmaster Examination and also requested to notify the vacancies of both the examinations together. But till date vacancies are neither notified nor Recruitment Rules of PS Gr. B cadre are amended.

           In view of the above submissions, your kind honour is once again requested to look into the matter personally and arrange for withdrawal of the notification issued to conduct the PS Gr. “B” examination scheduled to be held on 3rd June 2012 and hold the said examination only after the issue of Revised Recruitment Rules of PS Gr. B Cadre along with vacancy position of both Examinations (PS Gr. B and Sr. PM) together. It is also requested to issue necessary instructions to all Circles to allow the IPs/ASPs who are declared ineligible on the above mentioned grounds & allow them to fill OMR sheets to avoid litigation in the matter. 

          Hoping for favourable action please.

Yours sincerely,

(Vilas Ingale)
General Secretary

          “This Association is against the merger of Inspector Posts and Assistant Superintendents Posts Cadre. Inspector Posts should be granted Grade Pay of Rs. 4600/- with effect from 01/01/2006 at par with Inspectors of CBDT/CBEC in tune with directions of the Hon’ble CAT, Ernakulam Bench”.

This was conveyed to the Chairperson i.e. Member (P) vide this Association letter No.CHQ/IP/ASP/1/2012 dated 22.02.2012.

           It is pointed out here that cadre restructuring proposal i/r/o Inspector of CBDT/CBEC have been sent to the DOPT/MOF whereas our proposal is still pending in the Department. Hence, it is urged that   necessary directions/instructions may be issued to the committee to finalise its proposal and submit the same to the competent authority for further course of action.

Item No. 2  :- Quota of IP line in  PS Group “B”  Examination on introduction of Postmaster Cadre in Postal Wing.

          Out of 866 posts of PS Group “B”, 116 posts of Senior Postmaster have been earmarked for Postmaster Cadre in the manner given below :

IP Line
87 posts through LDCE
General Line
29 post through DPC

           Thus, 750 posts still remain in PS Group “B”. These posts may be divided among IP Line and General Line as suggested below by suitable amendment in Recruitment Rules of PS Group “B”.

No. of Group B posts available for General Line officials:

Number of Group B posts available for General Line Officials prior to introduction of Postmaster Cadre (6% of 866)
No. of posts in PS Group “B” through Examination (3% of 750)
No. of posts in Sr. Postmaster Grade through DPC  (25% of 116)

Thus, General Line Officials are not loosing any Group “B” posts due to introduction of Postmaster Cadre.

No. of Group “B” posts available for IP Line Officials:                    

No. of Group “B” posts available for IP Line Officials prior to introduction of Postmaster Cadre (94% of 866)

Total posts available for IP Line through examination
No. of posts in PS Gr. B through DPC – proposed (87% of 750)
Total posts available for IP Line in PS Gr. B + Sr. Postmaster

          Thus, IP Line officials will loose only three posts in examination quota but will get these posts by promotion by DPC. Overall, there is no change in the quota of IP and General Line.

          In view of the above facts, it is requested to kindly reconsider and implement the proposal by taking appropriate action to amend the PS Group “B” Recruitment Rules.

Item No. 3 :- Issue of Combined Seniority List of Inspectors, Posts from the
