Merger of IP & ASP

Reply by GS about merger of IP and ASP cadre

Dear Nirmal,

IP will definitely get 4600.But it is linked with merger of IP & ASP. DG is not in favour of merger. That is why she has recommended higher garde pay for all the three grades ie. IP/ASP/PS Gr B. If MOF agrees well and good. Otherwise we have to accept the merger. But we should support the gesture shown by the Dept. Because ASP/SP are our promotional posts.General line officials have LSG, HSG-II, HSG-I and PS Group B. IPoS officers have JTS, STS, Director, Selection Grade Directors, PMG, Chief PMG, Member and DG. They get pay fixation in all stages. We have only two grades ASP & SP.. If it is merged what is left behind? So do not agree for anything in a hurry. Let us try and get the best.
