(h)  MTS being a common cadre in all Central government Ministries/Departments will be extended the same benefits as commonly decided for them.

Before suggesting the scrapping of grade pay system,please note that it gives more financial benefits in MACP.Also,if the recommendations are implemented from 2014 onwards,those who are promoted to 4200 GP in the year 2014 may be adversely affected in the absence of GP system.

Everybody is raising their voice for promotional hierarchy in MACP.If this goal is achieved,employees of all departments will be benefited EXCEPT THE POSTAL EMPLOYEES AND VERY FEW OTHERS, BECAUSE MOST OF THE DEPARTMENTS HAVE THEIR PROMOTIONAL SCALES HIGHER THAN THE IMMEDIATE NEXT
SCALE.IF THE UNION LEADERS COULD NOT SUCCEED IN GETTING HIGHER SCALES FOR LSG,HSG 1&2,THEN IT WILL BE A TRAGEDY AS OUR EMPLOYEES WILL BE THE LOWEST PAID.THE LEADERS MAY PLEASE NOTE THIS POINT BEFORE SUBMITTING THE MEMORANDUM.

The comment on promotional hierarchy is a very important one.If this issue is not solved,the status of postal employees will return to pre-1996.

I wonder why this point was not raised by postal employees/union leaders amidst the cry for promotional hierarchy.Now our leaders should take up this case giving due importance before the 7th pay commission.

We should remember the case of ACP(not MACP) after 5th cpc.We opted for continuing TBOP& BCR instead of ACP.In other words we opted for getting immediate next scales after 16 and 26 years.But in most of the other departments,they opted for higher scales(Not immediate next scales).That too after 12 and 24 years!!!We should learn from the past.

SIR,
NOW IT IS THE BEST TIME TO SWEEP THE POSTMASTER CADRE. KINDLY SAVE THE POSTMASTER GRADE OFFICIALS FROM THE WELL. DIVERT ALL THE POSTMASTER GRADE POST TO GENERAL LINE.
