CIRCULAR No. 24   Dated: 24.12.2011                                                                                                                                                    

Dear Comrades,

 

National Council meeting and decisions.

 

                The National Council meeting as scheduled was held at Gananam Hotel Conference hall, Ernakulam, Kochi, Kerala on 16th December, 2011.  The National Council was inaugurated by Com. P. Rajiv, M.P. and was presided over by Com. Narasimhan, Vice President.  The meeting commenced with observance of two minutes silence to condole the death of comrades who passed away during the period between December, 2010 and December, 2011. The meeting specially moved and adopted a resolution to condole the death of Com. M.K. Pandhe, Member of the Polit bureau of CPI (M) and former General Secretary and President of CITU. 

 

                Com. Secretary General presented a brief report to the Council meeting touching upon the events of importance both at national and international arena. He also submitted a work report for the consideration of the house.  Decisions taken at the meeting on various agenda items are briefly as under:

 

           Agenda Item Nos 1 to 4. These agenda issues were discussed together.  The following were the conclusions.

 

(a)    Review of 25th March to Parliament Programme and the signature campaign

 

          The meeting evaluated the participation of CGE in the programme as very good.  It however felt that had some State Committees and the affiliates taken a little more efforts to comply with the quota fixed, the target could have been achieved.  The campaign for eliciting the participation of large number of comrades from nearby stations in Delhi had not been properly undertaken.

 

          Reviewing the efforts undertaken by the affiliates and state Committees in the matter of signature cam0paign, the meeting decided to record its disappointment over the laxity in the matter shown by many affiliates and State Committees.   The Council praised  the endeavour of the Kerala State Committee in the matter as that State alone accounted for almost 1/3rd of the total 3.5 lakhs signatures collected.

 

(b)   Subscription: The Secretary General informed the house that no improvement has been registered in the matter of remittance of subscription to CHQ by the affiliates.  He assured to present the receipt and payment position since the last conference to the next National executive.  The non-payment of subscription, he added, had a cascading effect in as much as the decision to start a journal, to effect intensive campaign on demands amongst the mass of the employees, the setting up of District level Committees etc., could not be implemented.  The Council asked the Sectt. to get in touch with each affiliate to ensure remittance.

 

(c)    Com. R.P. Singh informed the house that the Maharashtra State Committee will try to host the next Conference at Mumbai.  No final decision in the matter could be taken at the Council.

 

(d)   The Council felt that the charter of demands must be pursued with action programmes.  However, taking into account the fact that the Central Trade Unions have decided to organise a day's strike on 28th Feb. 2012, the National Sectt. of the Confederation was authorised to chalk out campaign programme to popularise the demands and organise agitational programmes culminating in a day's strike action  in the monsoon session of the Parliament (i.e. July- August, 2012). The earlier decision to organise a massive march to Parliament on the charter of demands was reiterated.  The date will be finalised by the National Sectt.   The campaign on the charter of demands will commence after 28th Feb. 2012. 

 

(e)   The Steering Committee's decision to organise two hour walk out and demonstration on the next day of the taking up the PFRDA Bill in the Parliament was reiterated.  It was also decided that campaign on the ill effects of the Bill must be brought to the notice of all MPs and they may be requested to oppose the Bill.   Taking into account the unanimous decision of the Standing Committee to incorporate a minimum guaranteed pension, the Council decided to emphasise that the Central Government employees must be ensured with the guarantee of Minimum pension of 50% of the last pay drawn, family pension benefit and such other facilities as are presently available. 

 

Agenda Item No. 5.

 

Participation in the ensuing strike action on 28th Feb. 2012.

 

          The Council unanimously endorsed the decision of the Central Trade Unions to organise a day's strike action on 28th Feb. 2012 and a resolution was adopted to call upon all CGEs organisations affiliated to Confederation to take strenuous efforts to ensure the participation of all members in the strike action on 28th Feb. 2012.

 

Agenda Item No. 6, National anomaly committee - Secretary General informed the council that the National Anomaly Committee is slated to meet on 5th Jan. 2012.  He however, informed the members that no settlement on serious issues is likely to come out in the said meeting. 

 

 Agenda Item No.7

 

          The Council adopted a resolution to be submitted to the Cabinet Secretary demanding the revival of the functioning of the Departmental Councils of Various Ministries.

 

          Another resolution was adopted to extend the solidarity and support of the Confederation to the Postal Employees who have decided under the auspices of the Joint Council of Action of Postal organisations to embark upon indefinite strike in Jan. 2012 for the Postal Board did not honour the commitment made earlier especially in the matter of closure of RMS offices as per the suggestion of the McKenzie Committee report.

 

          The Council decided to deplore through a resolution the terror attacks on T.U. Activists going on in West Bengal after the last general election. 

 

          The Council also adopted a resolution demanding grant of regular recognition to NFPE enabling it to be represented in the NC of JCM.

 

                The Kerala State Committee had made excellent arrangements for the conduct of the Council meeting and for the stay of the Council members.  On behalf of the National Secretariat Com. KV Sreedharan, Vice President, Confederation profusely thanked the State Committee and the volunteer comrades who made it possible.  Com PG Saseendran, Secretary, Ernakulam District Committee of Confederation offered vote of thanks.

 

                With greetings,

 

Yours fraternally,

K.K.N.Kutty

Secretary General

FILLING UP OF SHORT TERM VACANCIES IN THE

NEWLY INTRODUCED CADRE OF POSTMASTER

 

 

Sub: Filling up of short term vacancies in the newly introduced cadre of Postmaster-Reg.

 

D.G. Posts No. 4-61/2011-SPB.II dated 21 Dec 2011.

 

            I am directed to say that references are being received from Circles seeking clarifications with regard to filling up of the short terms vacancies in Postmaster Grade-I,II & III. It has been reported that representations have been received from Postmaster Grade-I /II officials asking for officiating promotion to Postmaster Grade-II/III although such officials do not fulfill the prescribed eligibility criteria stipulated under the relevant Recruitment Rules.

 

2.         It has been clarified vide Dte's letter of even number dated 7/8-2.2011 that the posts of Postmaster Grade-III should not be filled up under initial constitution clause by appointing HSG-I officials for the reason that sufficient number of regular officials in HSG-I would not have become available. It was further clarified that these posts can be filled up only after reviewing the position in the light of options received from eligible officials and appropriate decision taken by the Directorate in the matter. As per clarification No. 4 of Directorate's letter of even number dated 10.2.2011, the posts identified for Postmaster Cadres will be deemed to have been designated as Postmaster Grade-I, II & III with effect only from the dates those are filled  up regularly. Therefore, the Post of Postmaster Grade III will be deemed to be so designated only when these are filled up through initial constitution clause. Infact, in terms of the clarification No.4 dated 10.2.2011, these posts cannot be treated as vacant by the Circle. In the given circumstances when at present there are no posts of Postmaster Grade-III in existence, the question of filling up through officiating arrangement does not arise. Thus, till the posts so identified as Postmaster Grade-III will continue to be manned by officials in General line.

 

3.         Regarding officiating arrangement in the vacancies of more than 45 days in Postmaster Grade-I & II, which have become vacant  after they are designated as Postmaster Grade-I & II by filling up through initial constitution as clause as per the provisions of Recruitment Rules, the clarification No. 3 given vide Dte. Letter of even number dated 10.2.2011 was issued stating inter-alia that for filling up of leave vacancies / adhoc vacancies for more that 45 days in Postmaster Grade, the procedure prescribed in Dte's letter No. 137-99/2009-SPB.II dated 23.12.2009 should be followed.  It is envisaged in the said letter that only those employees in feeder grade fulfilling the eligibility condition prescribed in the Recruitment Rules should be considered for adhoc promotion.

 

4.         Subsequently, Directorate has issued instructions vide letter No. 137-64/2010-BPG.II dated 28.7.2011 permitting grant of officiating pay and Allowances to Selection Grade Officials who officiated in LSG/HSG-II/HSG-I posts in term of Rule 27 of Postal Manual Vol. IV  against the vacancies not exceeding three months. As per this Rule, the list of approved officers is prepared by the DPC and approved by the appointing authority and only when administrative exigencies required it, a person not in the list or not the first in order in the list may be appointed.

 

5.         Similar benefit has also been allowed to Selection Grade officials in terms of Rule 50 of Postal Manual Vol. IV which provides for officiating arrangement against the vacancies of short duration i.e. not more than ne month and more than four months in the cadres in which promotion is made from officials working in different stations, sub-divisions or divisions in a Circle and in the cadres in which promotion is made from officials working in the same office or station.

 

6.         In view of the above, to make officiating arrangements in vacancies nots exceeding three months and vacancies of short duration i.e. not more than one and four months in Postmaster Grade I & II, which become vacant after they are designated as Postmaster Grade-I & II, the Circles may follow the instructions contained in Dte. Letter No. 137-64/2010-SPB-II dated 28..7.2011.

SENIOR POSTMASTER EXAMINATION 2011

CLARIFICATION ON ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA

 

Sub:   Senior Postmaster Examination, 2011-Clarification on eligibility Criteria           Reg.

D.G. Posts No.4-58/2011-SPB.II dated 21 December, 2011.

 

            I am directed to say that references have been received from some Circles seeking clarifications as to whether Asstt. Supdt. Posts (ASPO) who are in the grade of Rs.4600/- and those ASPOs granted Rs. 4800/-as Grade pay under MACP scheme are eligible to appear for the ensuing Limited Departmental Competitive Examination for Senior Postmasters (Gazetted) to be held on 31.12.2011 and whether the Inspector of Posts who have been granted Grade Pay of Rs. 4600/- under MACP are eligible to appear for the said Senior Postmasters Examination.

 

2.         According to the Recruitment Rules, 75% of the vacancies in the grade of Senior Postmaster are required to be filled up by the Inspector of Posts (IPOs) with six years of regular service in the grade by promotion through Limited Departmental Competitive Examination and 25% of vacancies by promotion from amongst the officers holding the post of Postmaster Grade.III with two years regular service (including regular service in HSG-I, if any). Therefore, ASPOs holding the post on regular in the grade pay of Rs.4600/- and such ASPOs who are in receipt of Grade Pay of Rs.4800/- under MACP scheme are not eligible to appear in the said examination.

 

3.         Further, as per Modified Assured Career Progress Scheme (MACPS), on grant of financial upgradation under the scheme, there shall be no change in the designation, classification or higher status. The financial upgradation would be on non-functional basis. Thus, those regular IPOs who have been granted financial upgradation under MACP would continue to function against their existing posts. Therefore, higher Grade Pay derived by IPOs because of financial upgradation under the MACP scheme will not be a bar to such IPOs to appear in the Limited Departmental Competitive Examination for the post of Senior Postmaster as they continue to be the regular incumbents of the post of IPO.

 

4.         Circles are requested to take into account the above clarifications while deciding the eligibility of officers holding the post of ASPO and IPO for Senior Postmaster Departmental Examination, 2011.

3.      CONVERTION OF PTCL"S AS FTCL BY COMBINING THE POSTS OF PART TIME AND GRANTING TEMPORARY STATUS TO ALL PTCL'S BY REIRERATING  DOP ORDER NO. 45-14/92-SPB-I DT. 16-9-92.

 

Even though orders were issued earlier this was not implemented in many circles due to which years together casual employees were suffered without regularization.
