grade pay of inspectors

Dear friends,

Immediately after the release of 6th CPC, Our Association demanded higher grade pay of Rs 4600 to IP , Rs 4800 to ASP and Rs 5400 to PS Group B. The matter is still pending with Anomaly Committee for more than one year. During discussion, concerned officers in the Postal Directorate assured that the Grade Pay would be revised upwardly as soon as the Grade Pay of analogous cadre in other ministries/departments is revised.

Now the grade pay of Inspectors of CBDT/CBEC and Assistants in CSS has been revised from Rs 4200 to Rs 4600 vide Ministry of Finance Memo. No. F.No. 1/1/2008-IC dt.13.11.2009 and 16.11.2009. Referring this, I have already submitted letter No. CHQ/IASP/SCPC dated 16.11.2009 to Postal Directorate demanding Grade Pay Rs 4600 to Inspector Posts and a reminder was issued on 14.12.2009 besides meeting personally and had discussion with Director General (Posts) and DDG(Estt). But the file is not moving in the expected speed.

Enough time has already been given. We cannot prolong our patience furthermore. It is the time to react. Each one of us has to exert pressure on the Department. Then only we can get justice.

Please go through the following instructions carefully and do it immediately:

1. Every IP and ASP has to write a letter to DG individually with a copy to me.

2. Model letter is given below. Take print out. Two copies should be prepared. One should be sent to the following address:

Ms. Radhika Doraiswamy, Director General, Department of Posts, Dak Bhawan, New Delhi-110001

Another copy of this letter may be sent to the following address:

Shri. S.Samuel, General Secretary, AIAIASP, No.12.P&T Colony, Civil Lines, New Delhi-110054.

3. All Circle Secretaries and CHQ Office bearers are requested to personally request all members both IP & ASPs to send this letter.

4. All IP & ASPs are requested to pass on this message to all members and ensure that this letter is dispatched immediately as instructed above.

5. The letter writing campaign should be completed by 10.1.2010 positively.

Yours sincerely,


General Secretary

You are requested to consider following and e-mail your considered views.
1) Whether you are in favour of merger, if yes.

should be merged.
