TECHNOLOGY SWEEP IN INDIA POST

SECRETARY DEPT OF POSTS INFORMED THE STAFF SIDE DURING THE JCM DEPARTMENTAL COUNCIL MEETING THAT GOVT.HAS CLEARED THE PROPOSAL SUBMITTED BY THE DEPT FOR LARGE SCALE COMPUTERSATION PROGRAMME INCLUDING CORE BANKING, NETWORKING ETC. GOVT HAS ALLOTTED RS.1800 CRORES TO THE INDIA POST FOR THE PERIOD SEPTEMBER 2010 TO SEPTEMBER-2012.

ATTENTION P IV AND R IV COMRADES

CADRE RESTRUCTURING FOR ALL GROUP-C EMPLOYEES INCLUDING POSTMEN, MAILGUARD AND MULTI SKILLED EMPLOYEES
Many Comrades from P-IV and R-IV wants to know whether their cases for cadre restructuring will be considered by the Cadre Restructuring Committee. The reply given by Secretary Dept of Posts in the JCM Departmental Council Meeting held on 27.08.2010 is reproduced below for information of all concerned. ------ Secretary General, NFPE.

Item No. 8: Restoration and improvement of ‘In Cadre Promotion’ to Postmen/Mail Guard & Multi Skilled Employees Cadre.

The whole structure of regular promotions for Postmen/Mail Guard and Group D in the same cadre stream like Sorting Postman, Head Postman, Head Mail Guard, Jamadar, Head Jamadar etc had disappeared consequent on introduction of TBOP and BCR promotion Scheme. Hundreds of promotional posts like Head Postman, Head Mail Guard, Jamadar etc were abolished. Due to the unilateral shift in the status of TBOP/BCR system to MACP Scheme, the cadre of Postman, Mail Guards and Multi-Skilled Employees have no promotional avenue at all. Modified ACP is not a promotion but a financial upgradation to officials on completion of 10,20 and 30 years of service. The financial upgradation schemes are only an addition to the regular promotion scheme and not a replacement. It can be seen that all other cadres in the Department of Posts excluding Postman, Mail Guard and Multi Skilled Employees have their own in-cadre promotional system. It is therefore urged upon to reintroduce the regular promotional avenues to these cadres.

REPLY FROM SECRETARY DEPARTMENT OF POSTS

IT IS A PART OF CADRE RESTRUCTURING, WHICH IS TO BE CONSIDERED BY THE COMMITTEE CONSTITUTED FOR CADRE RESTRUCTURING AS PER THE DECISION OF THE 12.07.2010 MEETING.
