DG ORDERS FILLING UP LSG POSTS

I am reproducing the latest orders of the Postal Department on filling up of LSG posts in Postal and RMS:

Filling up of Lower Selection Grade posts in Post Offices and RMS Offices

Copy of D.G. (P) Cir. Lr. No. 137-4/2006-SPB-II dated 22-05-2007

To
All Pr. Chief Postmasters General / Chief Postmasters General of Circles
All Postmasters General / The Controller, Foreign Mails, Mumbai

Sir/Madam,
It may please be recalled that as per this Directorate's letter No. 137-4/2006-SPB.II dated 30th May 2006, it was informed that like the HSG-I and HSG-II cadres the LSG cadre will also be a Circle Cadre and the posts in the said Grade should be filled up by promotion as per the revised Recruitment Rules notified on 18-05-2006.

2. In order to make promotions to LsG it was decided during the meeting, held by Dy. Director General (Personnel) with the Astt. Postmasters General / Asstt. Directors (Staff) on 4th May 2007, that all the Circles will prepare and circulate the draft Gradation List of Postal Assistants / Sorting Assistants by the end of May 2007.

3. In this context it may be noted that prior to 30-05-2006, the LSG was a Divisional cadre and the posts in the said grade were required to be filled up accordingly.

4. It may be recalled that vide this Directorate's letter No. 4-16/2002-SPB-II dated 12-11-2002 all the Circles were advised that norm based LSG / HSG-II posts should be filled up notionally in terms of the relevant Recruitment Rules from the year when the norm based promotions had not been carried out so that promotions to upgraded posts in HSG-I could be made from amongst the eligible HSG-II officials. Accordingly, all the Circles were required to ensure that DPCs are convened to fill up the posts notionally so as to update the filling up of the norm-based posts.

5. It is essential to emphasize here that the notional promotion to norm-based posts as advised vide letter dated 12-11-2002 was not supposed to be one-time exercise but was to be carried out notionally from year to year with effect from the year the promotions had not been carried out. Therefore, a critical review may be carried out to ensure that notional promotions had been carried out at the Divisional level in the LSG cadre up to the year 2002 and vacancies which arose after the notification of revised Recruitment Rules notified on 07-02-2002 till 17-05-2006 have been filled up in terms of the provisions of the said revised Recruitment Rules. After latest revision of Recruitment Rules, notified on 18-05-2006, the vacancies in LSG are required to be filled by promotion as Circle cadre as intimate vide letter dated 30-05-2006 on the basis of the gradation lists being prepared by the Circles.

6. All the Circles are once again requested to ensure that the notional promotions have been given to the eligible officials to the LSG cadre so that only those officials figure in the Gradation List of PA / SA at Circle level who could not be given notional promotions / promotions by following the above-stated exercise for want of norm-based vacancies.

Yours faithfully,

DG ORDERS ON FILLING UP RESIDUAL VACANCIES

The Department has issued Orders on filling up the residual vacancies as assured in the gist of discussions that caused the indefinite strike decision deferred. The Orders are reproduced hereunder:


Filling up of residual vacancies

Copy of D.G. (P) Cir. Lr. No. 60-5/2007-SPB-I dated 15-05-2007

To
All Pr. Chief Postmasters General / Chief Postmasters General of Circles

Sir/Madam,
I am directed to invite your attention on the Recruitment Rules of Postmen. The Recruitment Rules prescribe that 50% of vacancies will be filled by promotion from Group 'D' failing which by Gramin Dak Sevaks on the basis of merit. Of the remaining 50% of vacancies, 25% will be filled by Gramin Dak Sevaks with minimum 15 years of service on the basis of seniority and 25% from the Gramin Dak Sevaks on the basis of merit in the examination. In case the vacancies still remain unfilled, then it will be filled up by Gramin Dak Sevaks of the neighbouring Divisions or by Gramin Dak Sevaks in the Region. Only thereafter, the residual vacancies will be filled up by direct recruitment through the nominees of the Employment Exchange. It is possible that adequate number of Gramin Dak Sevaks may not have become successful for appointment as Postman and perhaps certain residual vacancies exist in Circles.

2. Similarly, the Recruitment Rules of Postal Assistant / Sorting Assistant provide that 50% of the vacancies are to be filled by direct recruitment and the remaining 50% vacancies are required to be filled up by departmental examination held for LGOs failing which the unfilled vacancies are offered to the Gramin Dak Sevaks subject to their fulfilling the prescribed age and education qualification. It is possible that adequate numbers of LGOs may not pass the examination and also that eligible Gramin Dak Sevaks may not become available. It may please be noted that as laid down in the existing Recruitment Rules if the vacancies remain unfilled by Gramin Dak Sevaks, such residual vacancies of Postal Assistants / Sorting Assistants are required to be filled up by subsequent direct recruitment of open market candidates.

3. It may please be noted that the optimisation of direct recruitment to civil posts, ordered vide Department of Personnel & Training's O.M. dated 16th May 2001 is applicable to only direct recruitment vacancies. The unfilled 'Promotion quota' vacancies i.e. the residual vacancies will not come under the purview of the Screening Committee or the Annual Direct Recruitment Plans even if these are eventually required to be filled up by direct recruitment. Thus, such residual vacancies arising in the cadres of Postmen / Postal Assistants / Sorting Assistants after making all attempts to fill up by various modes of recruitment provided in the Recruitment Rules if are still lying unfilled should be filled up through Employment exchange as in the case of Postmen or by direct recruitment of other open market candidates as in the case of Postal Assistants / Sorting Assistants in accordance with the Recruitment Rules.

4. It is requested that the Circles may accordingly take action to identify the residual vacancies and fill up such posts as per the provisions contained in the Recruitment Rules. However, filling up such unfilled 'promotion quota' vacancies by direct recruitment should be done in accordance with general instructions regarding filling up of vacant posts as issued from time to time. If the posts are to be revived, such cases should be referred to the Establishment Division of the Directorate.

Yours faithfully,
