MEETING ON CADRE RESTRUCTURING

THE MEETING ON CADRE RESTRUCTURING WAS ELD ON 28TH SEPTEMBER 2011 AFTER  REVISING  THE COMMITTEE.THE CHAIRMAN REQUESTED TE STAFF SIDE TO SUBMIT PROPOSALS A FRESH.TE GS NAPEC ASKED FOR THE OLD COMMITTEE REPORT WIC CAN  BE USED AS BASE.THE GENERAL SECRETARY SUBMITTED FURTER PROPOSALS ON THE CADRE RESTRUCTURING.THE PROPOSALS ARE SUMMED UP UNDER.
CADRE RESTRUCTURING IN DEPARTMENT OF POSTS PROPOSALS OF NAPE, GROUP C FOR POSTMASTER CADRE






Department of Posts has introduced fast track promotion scheme in February 2002 and conducted two examinations in the years 2003 & 2004. As the scheme was introduced on experimental basis for a period of 2 years and Department has reviewed the scheme after the said 2 years and decided to continue the same. But due to strong opposition from staff side the said scheme was withdrawn w.e.f 18.05.2006.



Now the department has unilaterally taken a decision to introduce Postmaster cadre vide its order no 4-17/2008-SPB/II dated 22.11.10 and also publishing the gazette notification of India no GSR741(E) dated 09.09.2010 by identifying 1/3rd posts of LSG, HSG-II and HSG-I for Postmasters cadre. Thus 2097 LSG Posts, 511 HSG-II posts and 495 HSG-I postmasters were brought under postmasters cadre out of 5695 LSG posts 1077 HSG-II and 1176, HSG-I posts.



Firstly our union must strongly protest the introduction of such an important cadre without consulting unions, particularly when the proposal of cadre restructuring is under process in department even after constitution of cadre restructuring committee with a target date to complete the process of cadre restructuring by Dec-2010 itself.





1. After introduction of Postmaster cadre there will be 3 types of cadres in PA cadre like PA/ MACP-II/ MACP- III and LSG/HSG-II/ HSG- I and PM GR-I, PM GR-II/ PM GR-III creating a lot of confusion among the PAS and also to coming the 7th pay commission which may not able to identify what is what?



2. Any proposal of creation of new cadre/ cadre restructuring should improve the promotional aspects of the officials with financial benefit. But no such improvements were found in the proposal of Postmaster grade as no separate grade pay/ special allowance was proposed.



3. At present 3 years of regular service is required to get HSG-II promotion from LSG and likewise 3 years of service is required to get HSG-I from HSG – II. But now the same was increase to 6 & 5 years respectively to get Grade II from Grade-I and also to get Grade III from Grade – II which will be a severe set back to the promotional aspects of supervisor cadre.



4. As per existing orders 5 years of service in LSG or combined LSG/HSG-II/ HSG-I is enough for appearing Gr-B examination. But now in the postmaster cadre the same was as 2 years service in Grade – III for getting senior postmaster on seniority which will be another great set back and denial of natural justice to the officials opted for postmaster cadre as they have to wait for 13 years to get eligibility for getting Senior Postmaster (6+5+2) against present eligibility of 5 years in LSG cadre to appear for Gr-B examination.



5. As per para 6 III of DG (P) Memo No. 4-17/2008-SPB-II dated 22-11-2010 “after appointment in the Postmaster cadre their further progressive will be in the hierocracy in the postmaster cadre only” means the officials opted for postmaster cadre are not eligible for PSS Gr-B examination which will be another great set back to the officials opted to the cadre as they were eligible for 25% of 116 Senior Postmaster i.e just 29 Posts only.



6. There was no difference in discharging duties of LSG posts and Grade I Postmaster likewise HSG II/ Grade – II and HSG – I/ Grade – III as the duties of both are one and the same. But creation of one separate cadre as Postmaster cadre from just 1/3rd of LSG/ HSG – II/ HSG –I posts will bring no change in the efficiency of the Department. If the Department wants to improve the efficiency or to meet challenges in the wake of introduction of technology, challenges from market and increase in productivity, the department may divide the present LSG/ HSG-II/ HSG- I Posts as Postmaster cadre and superior cadre, bringing all 850 HPOs and LSG/HSG II SOs under Postmaster cadre and remaining posts of APMs/ DPMs in LSG/ HSG- II under superior cadre. Thus all HPMs/ SPMs in LSG/ HSG-II/ HSG – I will come under postmaster cadre all APMs/ DPMs will come under supervisor cadre.



7. Nothing was mentioned about any special financial or administrative powers to postmaster cadre.



8. No special pay/ pay scale were introduced to the Postmaster cadre.



The Postmaster cadre has no charm at all either on pay benefit or on future promotional aspects. As per the Directorate order dated 22/11/2010 there is a need for meritorious officials for facing the technical and marketing challenges. The officials who were promoted under FTP examination in 2003 & 2004 are working up to the satisfaction of the Department in LSG / HSG –II/ HSG – I Posts. But this creation of Postmaster cadre caused severe uncertainty and dislocation in the supervisory cadre in the Department.



As already explained above there was no charm in the postmaster cadre, because



1. There was no attractive pay to Postmaster cadre officials as PA who was drawing 2400/- Grade pay will get just one increment +2800/- Grade Pay i.e 400/- increase in Grade pay to those who have qualified immediately after completion of 5 years of eligibility service. There will not be any benefit at all the of the officials who were qualified after 10 years of service as he might have already reached Rs.2800/- GP in MACP – I. But where as an official who qualified in IP examination is getting 4200 GP and a proposal for revision of GP to IP cadre Rs.4600/-. Is also under active consideration of Department as IP/ ASPOs association has already proceeded through CAT.



If the IP cadre has got 4600/- GP it will be serve discrimination in PM Grade – I will get Rs.2800/- GP only and IP cadre is getting Rs.4200/- GP and may get even 4600/-. If they succeed in CAT or their new proposal of merging IP/ ASPOs cadre and even by loosing gazetted status to ASPOs to get 4600/-GP.





Thus if an IP who started with GP of Rs.4600/- get Rs.4800/- GP after 10 years of service in IP Cadre i.e. in 4600/- GP and later IP will automatically get Rs.5400/- after working in 4800/- GP for 4 years. Thus an IP candidate will reach Rs. 5400/- GP with in 19 years of service in the Dept. (5 years as PA + 10 years as IP + 4 years in 4800/- GP). But the Postmaster Grade official will remain in 4200/- Grade Pay even after completion of same 19 years of service (5 years PA @2400 GP and 2800/- GP in Grade – II. He will get 4200/- GP as Grade- III i.e. after total service of 5+6+5 = 16 years.



Previously up to 4th pay commission IP Cadre it’s equallent with our LSG cadre with scale of Rs.1400. But in 5th pay commission LSG PA was fixed at 4500 + scale. Whereas IP cadre has gone to 5500/- pay scale and now they are equating with HSG- I cadre if they got 4600/- GP.





Thus if the General line supervisors get equallent GP with IP cadre



Grade- I/ LSG will get 4200/- Grade pay

Grade – II/ HSG – II will get 4600/- Grade Pay

Grade – III/ HSG – I will get 4800/- Grade Pay.



And after continuation of 4 years in Grade Pay of Rs.4800/- this cadre will automatically get Rs.5400/- Grade Pay as per recommendations of the 6th CPC.



If the proposed revision of GP of IP Cadre to 4600/- Grade Pay was accepted by the Department.



Grade I/ LSG will get 4600/- Grade Pay

Grade II/ HSG- II will get 4800/- Grade Pay and will automatically get 5400/- after continuation of 4 years in 4800/- Grade Pay and Grade –III/ HSG-I may get next Grade Pay of Rs.6600/- also.



Hence we demand equallent Grade Pay on par with IP Cadre will only solve the image of PA Cadre. Reason behind the demand IP Cadre for revision of IP Grade Pay Rs.4600/-even by loosing gazetted status to ASPOs is that every IP will reach 5400/- Grade Pay and even to 6600/- Grade Pay in their service as previously they were stopped at 4800/- Grade Pay only. Hence we must chalk out correct strategy to get Grade Pay equallent with IP Cadre.





HIGHER RESPONSIBILITIES OF POSTMASTER CADRE/LSG/HSG –II/HSG –I OFFICIALS



In the changing scenario of the Department and to meet the challenges being faced by the Department from Private players in the field and to meet the present day requirement of specialization in Postal office management in the wake of introduction of Technology, challenges from market to increase the productivity it has been absolutely become essential to ensure key post offices are headed by professional managers, that professionally qualified, trained and meritorious officials head key post offices with the postmaster cadre officials and also with LSG/ HSG – II, HSG – I officials as they has to play key role in all over development of Department of Posts in India. In addition to this to man the Aam Aadmi offices under Project Arrow scheme and also to implement the prestigious schemes of Govt of India like NREGS, UID ADHAR cards, Social Security Pension Scheme of State Govts, BPL Accounts, the supervisor cadre in the Dept of Posts like Postmaster cadre and LSG/HSG – II/ HSG –I has to play key role for successful implementation of all Govt Schemes.



GAZETTED STATUS TO HSG- I / POSTMASTER GRADE – III



Postmaster Grade – III/ HSG- I officials are manning almost all Aam Aadmi HOs shouldering higher responsibilities than any other official in the Dept. as they have to manage nearly 5o to 60 officials including all cadres like APMs/ DPMs/PAs/Postmen/ Group –D, HSG- I Postmaster will draw/ remit nearly 5 to 10 crores from SBI to meet the cash needs to HO and SOs under the jurisdiction of HO and also has to deal with disciplinarians proceedings as a disciplinary authority. In addition to this the Savings Bank has to brought up to date in implementation of core banking solutions and also has to ensure 100% delivery under Aam Aadmi and also to discharge the duties as drawing and disbursing officer to nearly 500 to 1000 officials.





Thus the HSG – I Grade – III Postmasters are discharging the duties of highest responsibilities than any other officials in the Department as a controlling and disciplinary authority on nearly 50 to 100 officials. Keeping in view of these hazardous duties of HSG- I/ PM Grade –III. This cadre should be treated as Gazetted cadre to bring some charm to the cadre of HSG- I/ PM Grade- III.



In view of the higher responsibilities to be discharged by the LSG/ HSG – II. HSG- I and PM Grade- I, II, III. The following grade pay with the special pay may please demanded.



LSG/ Grade – I – 4200/- GP + 10 % of PB +GP as supervisory allowance



HSG II/ Grade – II – 4600/- GP + 20% PB + GP as supervisory allowance



HSG – I/ Grade III – 4800/- GP + 30% of PB+ GP supervisory allowance



The very reason for non coming forward to supervisory cadre in the Department is due to no charm and future prospectus of the cadre and also no financial benefit. Hence all the seniors are preferring to satisfy with MACP – I, II, III only. Hence special pay may be demanded as supervisory allowances @ 10%, 20 % and 30 % respectively to LSG/ HSG- II, HSG – I as mentioned above.



Increase in Financial Powers: - Keeping in view of present cost of living the financial powers of LSG/ HSG – II, HSG- I may be increased to 500/750/1000 respectively after implementation of total computerization as even a small spare part of computer costs from Rs 300 to 500/- and getting permission from Divisional Head is causing in ordinate delay in getting repairs of computer peripherals which effecting the image of Department.



Finally my union would like to bring the following issues of LSG/ HSG II/ HSG – I and PM Grade I, II, III officials.





1. Officials opted for Postmaster cadre should be allowed for PSS Group B examination.



2. LSG/ HSG II, HSG I officials working in RMS should also be permitted to appear fro PSS Group – B examination as they were denied the same at present.



3. At present 75% PSS Group – B Posts are being filled up through ASPOs on seniority cum fitness and in remaining 25% , 19 % to IP/ASP cadre and 6 % to general line through competitive examination. But there was no chance to get PSS Group – B from HSG – I through seniority cum fitness. As HSG – I is an equal lent cadre to ASPOs, we demand at least 5 to 10% IN 75 % Seniority quota of ASPOs to be allotted to general line HSG I / Grade III officials which can improve the prospective of HSG I, Group III officials and also gave great charm to the cadre as such provision was made to PM Grade III officials to get Senior Postmaster Posts. The position of Group B posts at present is as follows.



Total no of posts of PSS Group- B- 866 Senior Postmaster Posts- 116



75% of 1866 through seniority cum fitness – 649



19 % of 866 posts through exam to IP Cadre – 165



6 % of 866 Posts through exam to General Line – 52.



Now the IP, ASPs, association bringing a new argument that due to implementation of Postmaster cadre 25 % of senior postmaster posts have gone to general line Grade III officials. That means 29 Posts of 116 Senior Postmaster Posts were given to Grade III postmaster as seniority cum fitness after remaining two years of service in Grade- III. Hence 52 PSS Group B Posts allotted under 6 % General line quota should be reduced by 29 as they have lost their Senior Postmaster Posts to Grade III officials. If this demand was accepted general line PSS Group B posts will come down to 52-29 = 23 only which will be a severe loss to the promotional avenues of general line officials. Hence we demand to keep the 52 PSS Group B posts and 29 Senior Postmaster Posts under general line without affecting the promotional chances of general line officials.





4. All the 116 posts in the Sr Postmaster cadre should be filled up from the Postmaster/HSG I, as a separate cadre of Postmasters is carved out. The Non Gazetted HSG I Posts of Postmasters which are being manned by the ASPs who are gazetted should be merged with the Sr Postmaster cadre Posts.







5. All the present Adhoc arrangements in HSG II, HSG I should be regularized as per the present service condition of 3 years as a one time measure without waiting for revised recruitment rules of HSG I.



6. 25% Posts of Sr. Postmaster posts shall be filled up from among the existing HSG – I officials including Adhoc at the initial stage itself as no eligible officials in Grade III is available with 2 years of service in Grade III on seniority cum fitness.



7. APM (accounts), Accountants may be permitted to appear for Postmaster cadre examination.





My union therefore urge upon the committee to take all the above into the consideration in cadre restructuring of Postmaster cadre LSG, HSG II, HSG I officials cadre.

Sir,
Great job sir. On behalf of the FTP Supervisors Association of AP Circle I thank u very much for taking all the pains for submitting the proposals reflecting the painful hearts of thousands of Postal Supervisors throughtout India. Without getting any monetory bebefits or status the heads of offices are being penalised for simple and silly reasons.
I do not understand as to why the IP/ASP cadre are against the PAs though they are basically from the PA cadre only.

We wish thzt the proposals submitted by NAPE-Group>C- Genl Secretary are accepted in toto by the Dept in the next meeting orders issued at the earliest.
Thank u once again sir,

The proposals are very good except the one demanding RMS colleagues be permitted to appear for the Group B examinations.I wish to say that I am not against our colleagues in RMS getting the Group B posts as demanded by our G.S. The RMS Unions are totally opposing the move of conducting any examination for promotion to the supervisory LSG,HSG II and HSG I cadre. If the RMS unions also agrees now, then we have to ask for more percentage in the Group B cadre

AS TOLD BY MR. RAVICHANDER THE IP/ASPS HAVE OFTEN FORGOTTEN THEIR BASIC CADRE. THEY FEEL THAT THEY ARE COMING FROM THE SKY DIRECTLY TO THAT CADRE. OFCOURSE I APPRECIATE THEIR ALL INDIA ASSOCIATION FOR FOCUSSING THEIR PROBLEMS AND FIGHTING FOR THEIR RIGHTS. BUT IN OUR OPERATIVE SIDE UNIONS EXCEPT NAPE GR"C DO NOTHING TO PEOPLES WHO ARE FACING PROBLEMS IN FIELD LEVEL DAY TO DAY

Sir,first of all I must thank you for the proposals submitted for cadre review for Postmaster Cadre.NAPE Gr-c is the only union supportive of the cause of the Postmaster cadre.This proposals are truely genuine and commandable except few proposals which may be reconsidered as in last para 6 which proposes all the 25% post of Sr.Postmaster post are to be filled with officials of general line officials in HSG-I as a one time measure which will be against the interest of the Postmaster Grade -II officials who were once in HSG-I Adhoc position till March 2011.If such proposal is recomended then the officiasl in HSG-I ADHOC as on April2011, before issue of orders for appointment of Postmaster Grade officials should be given regular promotion notionall as a one time measure so that the inter se senority of the FTP OFFICILAS can be maintained and justice upholded. The proposal that Postmasterb grade officials should be permitted to appear for the LDCE such as GR-B,IPO will be appriciated even by opposition.
As there is no difference in nature of work for GENERAL LINE OFFICIALS AND POSTMASTER LINE OFFICIASL, the proposal of bringing all the 850 post office under postmaster cadre is also a welcome move.well done..

Sir,
Good evening and first of all myself salute and appreciate on behalf of all Group-C staff and as well as of Post Master Grade officials for the excellent task of submitting needy proposals to our department in time.

The Officials of PM Grade were already frustrated and deprived of by shouldering with higher responsibilities without any monetary benefit. The proposals submitted by NUPE Group C regarding Cadre review are really deserving for Group C and especially for Supervisory/ PM grade offcials.

YOU have poured milk in the hearts of thousands of POSTMASTER GRADE Officials.When a Sorting POSTMAN/MACPII PA is drawing a Grade Pay of Rs.4200/ equal to that of PM GradeII, Then there is definitely FUNCTIONAL DISTURBANCE in a Office. Moreover it is not feasible to execute command over subordinates morally since there is no difference of even a single rupee in Grade Pay which is a crucial element that distinguish cadres according to 6th CPC.

Sir You have analysed the various problems faced by GroupC and PM grade Officials in each and every aspect and arrived the demands, except the last two paras i-e 5 and 6 and it will be justified If our department comes forward to fill up the posts of PM gradeIII and Senior PM first with Offcials of PM GradeII and PM GradeIII respectively and later on with Offcials Regular HSGI as per CHRONOLOGICAL order.

Thank you Sir for your sincere and dedicated endeavours.

Thank u sir for your valuable demands for the welfare of PostMaster cadre/Supervisory officials. The stand taken by U is very much appreciated. No other union except FNPO takes care for the welfare of Postmaster grade Offcials.

Also once upon a time LSG and IPO had been drawing the same scale (i-e RS.1400).But now IP cadre is demanding GP of Rs.4600/.The responsibilities and nature of work of a PM gradeII/HSGII official is almost equal to IP.

Jindabad Jindabad FNPO Jindabad

First of all I salute our union leaders for presenting a such kind of proposals to solve all the problems at first in the beinnning stage which are facing by the meritorius officials in the operative wing called POSTMASTER
GRADE I,II,III AND LSG/HSG. More over I express my thanks to our beloved Gen secy Shri D KISHAN RAO
for his broad thinking about our postmaster cadre offical`s hurdles in the department. The proposals submitted by our union is excellent and touch all hearts of postmaster grade officials eventhough they are in the heart of our Hon`ble DG POST. DG Post like officials with extra ordinary calibre in the department to face and tackle the present situation in the technologically developing department. So asking higher grade pay to postmasters is unevitable and also genuine.

Once again FNPO prooves that this is the only union to take all the genuine grivences of employees to higher level for permanent settlement. Eventhough all the proposal are excellent the proposal
5 regarding 25 percentage of sr postmaster post is not comperimising to the postmaster cadre officials. So many officials are now working the PM GradeII by giving option from their Ad-hoc HSG I position till the middle of Apr 2011 and their inter serniority should not be disturbed at any time by giving way to Gen line officials. Once the ACP is in the hierarchy of postmaster cadre further promotion in the gradeIII and sernior postmaster should be considered from the officials selected for PM Cadre.

Once again we beleive the our union will go right to right persons.

Thanks with regards

SIR,
THANKS A LOT FOR TAKING MUCH EFFORT TO BRING THE POSTMASTER GRADE TO A HIGHER STAGE OF RESPECTABLE POSITION. THE MAIN URGENT NEED TO SATISFY THE POSTMASTER GRADE OPTED OFFICIALS IS TO GET ORDERS FOR THE SPECIAL ALLOWANCE / RISK ALLOWANCE TO SHOULDER HIGHER RESPONSIBILITY IN CASE OF CASH AND VALUABLE ITEMS OF THE OFFICE. THE SECOND THING IS THEY SHOULD BE RESPECTED BY THE HIGHER AUTHORITIES AND ALSO THE CUSTOMER WHICH CAN BE GAINED ONLY BY GIVING GAZETTED STATUS TO ALL HSG-I / POSTMASTER GRADE-III OFFICIALS AT ONCE. ALL THE VACANT POSTS OF LSG/ HSG-II/ HSG-I AND POSTMASTER GRADE-II AND GRADE-III SHOULD BE FILLED UP AS A ONE TIME MEASURE ACCORDING TO THE PRE REVISED GRADATION LIST BEFORE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE POSTMASTER GRADE WHICH WOULD HELP A LOT OF OFFICIALS TO GET THEIR PROMOTION AND ALSO A HIKE IN THE GRADE PAY.NO ONE CAN BE COMPELLED TO BE IN THE SAME POST WITHOUT GIVING THEM ANY OPTION TO WRITE FUTURE PROMOTIONAL ASPECTS OF EXAMINATION WHICH IS AGAINST THE GOVT RULES AND ALSO AGAINGST THE HUMAN RIGHTS. HENCE ALL THE POSTMASTER GRADE OFFICIALS SHOULD BE GIVEN EQUAL CHANCE TO ATTEND THE GROUP-B, SENIOR POSTMASTER EXAMINATION/ IPO EXAMINATION WITHOUT COMPELLING THEM TO BE ARRESTED WITH THE POSTMASTER GRADE ITSELF.
WITH LOTS OF THANKS ONCE AGAIN.

Sir,Is not it true that there is ample functional justification for upgradation of grade pay to
the extent of Rs.2800/- to Postal Assistants, then why we are not demading that. If the I.P.O. cadre can fight for upgradation of Grade Pay from Rs.4200/- to Rs.4600/- then why not P.A.s. It is quite clear that only operator P.A.s are revenue earning force of the Department. It is also clear that if the Grade pay increases at the initial stage then all the junior and senior P.A.s will be benefitted. Then friends!please post your strong comments for upgradation of grade pay to Rs.2800/-for P.A.s.- Rajib.

Dear Sir,
Regards. It is a superb presentation keeping in view the future of the Dept. as well as Officials. Almost all problems of Supervisors have been addressed in a comprehensive manner by the GS. Thank you Sir. Every honest Supervisor will never forget that but for FNPO they could not have got their HSG-II promotion. Again it is FNPO CHQ which has voiced the feelings of Supervisors elaborately.

The Dept. is already running five different lines under same scale of pay ie., General line, IPO line, Accounts line, Postmaster cadre and MACP PAs. It has confused Supervisory cadres to the extent possible. But it is very cleverly discriminating the suffering Supervisors. On introduction of MACPS Supervisors have lost their significance and identity. Every 'You will be personally held responsible' and 'reply by eMail' letters are showered on Supervisors. But in terms of pay they are exploited.

When a III MACP PA who can work at the vicinity of his residence throughout his service can get 4600 GP equivalent to a HeadPostmaster, a Gr.I PM or LSG has to move away even to other Region and work in a remote Quarters office for Rs.2800 GP.

In addition, by maintaining different lines under same pay, the Dept. has narrowed down the promotional avenues and transfer options drastically. In order to mitigate the sufferings the condition of 'one time option' should be done away with. Supervisors should be allowed to hold any Supervisory post on tenure basis-as per his seniority cum willingness-so that family dislocations could be averted atleast for 4 years. Promotions may be granted on the basis of Combined GL as done earlier. (No change is impossible. We have already seen the scrap of FTP scheme!) However efficiency based promotions may continue with higher pay & allowances. All the best Sir. - M. Senthil Rajan, FNPO P3, Madurai and CS, Postal & RMS FTP Supervisors Assn, TN Circle.

Thanks for a good praposal for the feture of DOP in new challenges. The DOP is expecting from Postmaster/Supervisiors more and more but they don't think about the problems of this cadre a Post master / supervisior is a link between public and admistration, public come to him but Post master / supervisior is not able to offer them a cup of tea because he is not getting any type of allowance for this purpuse. any other all problems you have mentioned in the praposal is very good and we have to get them from DOP and for that we have to fight.

Well done.Hats of for your strenuous efforts for the uplift of PostMaster Cadre Offcials throughout our Nation.Unless the following demands are accepted,then the Postmaster cadre, which was constituted by our beloved DG Madam in good spirit will vanish in due course.
1.Gazetted status should be granted at least to POSTMASTER GRADEIII.
2. Granting of GP of Rs.4200/,4600, and 4800/ to PMGradeI,PM GradeII and PMGradeIII respectively.
3.Grant of some disclipinary and financial powers to some extent to manage and maintain the PostOffice.
