Subject: Merger / de-merger of IPO/IRM Cadre & minimum working experience about Postal/RMS Wing before promotion to Asstt. Supdt /Supdt. Cadre

The issue of de-merger of Inspector Posts cadre into two separate IP & RMS and the necessity of a compulsory minimum working experience in  both Postal & RMS Wing before regular promotion of Inspectors to Assts. Superintendent and further in PS Group ‘B’ were deliberated during the Heads of Circles conference held on 8-9th April. It was decided to take views of the circles on this  formally.

Circles were addressed on the above two issues. The majority of the Circles were found to be in favour of a unified cadre of Inspectors Posts(IP). Therefore, it has been decided that status quo may be maintained by retaining united cadre of IP as present.

On the issue of compulsory minimum working experience in Postal & RMs Wing, it has been decided that a Postal Assistant qualifying the departmental examination for IP should put in at least 2 years of service in RMS field units compulsorily before being considered for promotion to ASP & minimum three years of service in RMS units before being considered for promotion to PS Group ‘B’ grade. Similarly s Sorting Assistant qualifying the departmental promotional examination for IP should put in at least 2 years of service in Postal field units compulsorily before being considered for promotion in ASP & minimum 3 years of service in Postal field units before being considered for promotion to PS Group ‘B’ grade. The period of service in Postal/RMS field units can be in one spell or more than one spell. Preferably it should be in one spell.

The RMS field units for the above purpose will comprise of mail offices, Speed Post Hubs, Foreign Post Offices, Transit Mail offices & RMS Sub Divisional Units etc. and will not include working as SI or SAS in CO/RO. The Postal field units for the above purpose will comprise of Postal Sub Divisional Units. This will not include working as Inspector (PG) or Office Superintendent etc. The Spirit of this order is that the Inspectors or Asstt. Superintendent should have adequate field level experience of both Postal & RMS Wings before promotion to the next grade.

This order takes effect from the date of issuing this memo.
