Rotational Transfers - Clarification

We thank our readers for some very interesting letters in response to our clarifications on the above subject. Do continue to write to us.

One reader wanted department order regarding posting of LSG officials in metropolitan cities. The order of the department is reproduced below for information.

D.G (P) Letter No. 6 - 19/ 82. SPB. II dated 16-10-1989

I am directed to refer to this office letter No. 6 -19/92-SPB.II dated 13-1-1985 on the above subject. In para 4 of the said letter it has been stated that for the purpose of promotion to LSG, Postal Assistants / Sorting Assistants in all Units located at the four metropolitan cities Bombay, Calcutta, Delhi and Madras and those where more than one division exist will constitute one single cadre. The matter has been re-examined in this office and it has now been decided that the LSG will be a divisional cadre even in cities having more than one division except in four metropolitan cities of Bombay, Calcutta, Delhi and Madras. In other words LSG cadre has not been divisionalised in four metropolitan cities.

GDS Committee recommendations

It is learnt that at long last the J S (IF) cleared the file and now the Secretary (Posts) will forward the same to our Minister for onward transmission to Min. of Finance, DoP&T and the Cabinet.
