At the out set, on behalf of the Association, I would like to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation for payment of PLI incentive to the members of our Cadre even though the payment was part. It is requested to order payment of the remaining part also especially for the financial year 2007-2008.

I would like to submit before you 2 more issues which require your immediate interference and favourable action.

1. The DPC for promotion of IPs to ASP cadre was held in the first week of February 2009. Unfortunately, the allotment and posting orders have not been issued so far. It is requested to kindly intervene in the matter and issue the orders of posting/allotment urgently, lest the restrictions that may be imposed by the EC in postings and transfers in view of the coming LS election are to likely come in the way, if the orders are lagged. Further. The delay may trigger frustration and disappointment among the young aspirants in our Cadre. It is without saying that the release of the order will definitely boost up their confidence as this is the time for canvassing maximum business and there is no better tonic than their order of promotion to inspire them for achievement of their business target, if not more. It is also requested to release the order immediately after considering all the requests for transfers and allotment of all the applicants.

2. Smt. Molly I panicker had to relinquish from the post of DY SP Thiruvanthanpuram North Division last week. She has not been given any alternate posting and she was constrained to proceed on leave. She has left with only 5 months of service before retirement. There are 2 vacant posts at CO in PS Group B cadre, that of AD (GA) and AD (FS). She may kindly be posted on Ad-hoc basis in either of the 2 posts, avoiding reversion to ASP Cadre. It is requested to kindly help her in this way.

I am hopeful that the above cases will be settled very soon because I know that you have always showed care, help and kindness to our cadre, whenever necessity arisen.

Assuring our goodwill and cooperation always,

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,

M.P.Nirmal Kumar

Circle Secretary
