Regarding observations against proposed Recruitment Rules of PS Group B cadre.

General Secretary Addressed the Secretary on recruitment rules of PS group B.
No.CHQ/AIAIPASP/RR-PS Gr.B/2016                          Dated:    15/06/2016

Shri S. K. Sinha,
Director General,
Department of Posts,
Dak Bhawan, Sansad Marg,
New Delhi-110 001.

Subject:     Regarding observations against proposed Recruitment Rules of PS Group B cadre.

Reference:   Directorate No. 9-14/2010-SPG dated 30.05.2016 refers.

Respected Sir,

The IP/ASP Association has extensively studied the proposed recruitment rules and members are in the state of deep disappointment. The proposed RRs are totally disregard to the basic criteria and orders of Hon’ble CAT bench in OA No.399/PB/2011 dated 26.05.2011, wherein statement given by Director (Staff) at Bar that the quota prescribed (75% for promotion under non-examination quota & 19% for promotion under Examination Quota), qua which the prayer is relatable, shall not be exceeded, was accepted.  These are full of discrimination to the IP/ASP waiting elevation to Group B for the last 24-25 years. Thus career progression of IP/ASP under non-examination quota (75%) has been hit hard. New RRs have drastically reduced the number of posts to 562 from 649 posts. Below Tabulation would show how already settled position has disturbed the number in their respective quota in post based roaster.

PS Gr. ‘B’ Recruitment Rules, 1993 [Pre-revised]

Total Number of Posts
No. of 75% IP line posts to be filled through Seniority cum fitness
No. of 19% IP line posts to be filled through LDCE
No. of 6% General line posts to be filled through LDCE

Sr. Postmaster Recruitment Rules, 2010

Total Number of Posts
No. of IP line posts to be filled through Seniority cum fitness
No. of 75% IP line posts to be filled through LDCE 75% of 116
No. of 25% General line posts to be filled through seniority cum fitness

 PS Gr. B Recruitment Rules, 2016 (proposed to be revised)

Total Number of Posts
866-116 =750
No. of 75% IP line posts to be filled through Seniority cum fitness
No. of 22% IP line posts to be filled through LDCE as per roster in vogue.
No. of 3% General line post to be filled through LDCE
52-29  =23

          Thus, there is overall loss of 87 posts to be filled under seniority cum fitness quota in PS Gr. ‘B’ while examination quota gained 87 posts in Sr. Postmaster cadre. Whereas all the other cadres Gr. C & Gr. A are benefitted in their respective cadre restructuring, at the same time promotion avenues of IP/ASP (non-examination quota) are squeezed. As a matter of justice 87 posts should not be carved out/reduced from Seniority quota. RRs of Sr. Postmaster Rules are amended to the extent that promotion (75%) to Sr. Postmaster should also be through Seniority cum fitness to equalise the equation under respective quota. 

          It is hoped that proper measures to solve this matter and chalk out remedies for our grievances will be taken before giving final nod to the proposed RRs.

          This Association hopes that an early action will be taken by the Department.
Yours sincerely,

 (Vilas Ingale)
