      IP/ASP would like to bring to your kind notice that a proposal for merger of ASP cadre in to PS Gr. B cadre was forwarded to Directorate under letter of even number dated 20/11/2013. This issue was already discussed at length in person with Hon’ble Secretary (Posts), Member (P), DDG (Estt) and Director (Estt) and during the course of discussion; everybody has appreciated the proposal, as since last 33 years no cadre review has been taken place for IP cadre. The issue of parity of GP and promotional prospects of Inspectors in the Department like Income Tax, Customs and Central Excise etc. was also discussed. It was brought to the notice of all the officers that, in other Departments, Inspectors get promotion direct to PS Gr. B but in the DOP there is exists an intermediary grade of ASPs having Gazetted status. The response of the Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure was also informed in the matter of raising the GP of IPs from the existing Rs. 4200/- to Rs. 4600/- so as to bring them on par with Inspectors in other Departments.

      It is to further bring to your kind notice that all the circles have submitted the requisite information called for by Directorate vide above referred letter. This vital issue is pending at Directorate since more than 5 months. In case of any query in the matter, this Association may be called for discussion. 

     It is therefore requested to kindly look into the matter personally and caused to move the proposal to the Nodal Ministry immediately.

10 high cholesterol foods to avoid

Cholesterol is a fat found in the blood and is necessary for production of hormones and functioning of membranes.

When it comes to good cholesterol, our body makes it with the help of correct diet. But when it comes to high cholesterol, you are at a high risk of heart disease and stroke.

We give you a list of high cholesterol foods that you should avoid especially if you care for your health.

High cholesterol foods to avoid: Egg yolk
According to, "egg yolks have the most cholesterol of any food with 1234mg per 100 gram serving or 411% of the daily value . A single egg yolk will provide 210mg of cholesterol, while a whole egg provides slightly more with 212mg. Thus all the cholesterol in eggs is found in their yolks." One needs cholesterol in moderation, so if you had an egg in the morning then avoid a bulky cheese burger for your lunch.

High cholesterol foods to avoid: Liver
According to, Cholesterol is produced by the hence liver dishes in itself are high on cholesterol. "The liver from most any meat will contain 564mg of cholesterol per 100 grams or 188% of the daily value."

According to American Heart Association says no more than 300 mg of cholesterol for a healthy adult. Three ounces of cooked beef liver will give you 331 mg of cholesterol.

High cholesterol foods to avoid: Butter
According to, we Indians love butter, its flowing everywhere, on our breads, cakes, parathas and Indian cuisines. "100 grams of butter packs 215mg (72% daily value) of cholesterol and one tablespoon contains 30mg (10% daily value)."

High cholesterol foods to avoid: Shrimp
According to, "100 grams of shrimp will contain 195mg (65% daily value) of cholesterol. A single large shrimp contains 11mg (4% daily value) and an ounce of shrimp will provide around 55mg.

A few seafoods work great for you but there are few that are loaded with cholesterol. When opting for seafood go for boiled once then fried.

High cholesterol foods to avoid: Chicken
Though chicken is a low fat meat option, the way it is cooked makes a lot of difference. One chicken leg with the skin has more fat and cholesterol than a cup of ice cream or a burger. The chicken skin on makes it a high-cholesterol food.

High cholesterol foods to avoid: Fast foods
According to, "Fast foods, are packed with cholesterol. A chip, egg, and cheese biscuit will provide 172mg (57% daily value) per 100g serving, or 246mg (82% daily value) of cholesterol per biscuit."

Trans fats turns all your snacks and fast foods into a high-cholesterol food. Trans fats are a result of adding hydrogen to vegetable oils, which are then used in many commercial baked goods or fried foods such as cookies, cakes, fries and potato chips.

High cholesterol foods to avoid: Cheese
According to, "A vegetarian source of protein, and also a good source of calcium, cheese is a tasty addition to most any dish. Cheese contains the most cholesterol with 123mg (41% daily value) per 100 gram serving. That is 21mg (7% daily value) per one inch cube."

High cholesterol foods to avoid: Processed meats
According to, "The amount of cholesterol in any processed meat depends on the cut used, and the amount of fat added during processing. In terms of meats, lamb and duck will contain the most cholesterol all things being equal."

High cholesterol foods to avoid: Cheese burger
A big cheese burger has approximately has 175 mg of cholesterol. You might want to hold off fries and the shake, or better yet, order a plain burger instead.

High cholesterol foods to avoid: Ice cream
According to, "Did you know that a single cup of ice cream has more fat than a hamburger and more cholesterol than 10 glazed doughnuts? Skip the scoop and try a cup of fresh fruit for dessert instead. Fruit is low in calories and high in the fiber, vitamins, and nutrients you really need — making it one of the best things you can eat for lower cholesterol."
