The procedures to fill up these posts have not been spelt out in this order - But we gathered that the first time absorption in all these posts will be by one-time option from LSG-HSG-II/HSG-I officials - But in future all LSG Postmasters vacancies will be only through Competitive Examination from PA/SAs.
Postal JCA has already decided on its 3rd February 2010 meeting to organise protest on such unilateral action of DoP and called for a nationwide protest with a Massive Parlamentary March on 2.3.2010 along with important GDS, Casual labourers and Attack on RMS issues.
