The issue of creation of Postmasters cadre was also discussed. All the members vowed to rally behind the Association for any course of action. A resolution on the issue of Postmasters Cadre, requesting the Chief PMG to cancel the orders issued by the Circle to identify 8 IPO line posts contrary to the instructions on the subject, was passed in the meeting.

‘ALL INDIA ASSOCIATION OF INSPECTORS AND ASSISTANT SUPERINTENDENTS POSTS expresses its strong protest and indignation against the move of the Circle Administration to identify the 8 IPO line posts in Kerala Circle as part of implementing the scheme of creating a separate cadre of Postmasters. (Postmaster Grade III) in total violation of instructions contained in Directorate letters No. 4-17/2008-SPB-II dated 22.11.2010 and 25.11.2010 which clearly stipulates that the cadre of postmasters will be made by carving out the posts from the existing general line cadre posts (emphasis supplied).

As such, the Association requests the Circle administration to immediately recall and cancel the orders issued to identify the IPO line posts for Postmaster Grade III.

Postmaster Cadre- GS writes to DG on Kerala Issue

No. CHQ/IPASP/PMC/2010 Dated: 31.12.2010

The Director General
Department of Posts
Dak Bawan, New Delhi 110001

Sub: Identification of Posts of HSG I (IP Line) for Postmaster Grade III in Kerala Circle –reg.

Ref: Directorate letter no. 13-2/2010-PE I dt. 25.11.2010

Respected Madam,

It is brought to your kind notice that Chief Postmaster General, Kerala Circle has identified all posts of HSG I (IP Line) for Postmaster Grade III in violation to instructions of the Directorate letter cited in the reference. Due to this there is great resentment among IPs/ASPS of Kerala Circle. Your good self is well aware that all posts of Postmaster Grade I, II and III are to be carved out from the existing General Line cadre posts. At present 141 posts of HSG I are earmarked for the IP Line officials which are part of promotional avenue for the Inspectors, Posts. Other Circles are carving out only from the existing General Line posts.

2. In view of the above, it is requested to kindly arrange for issuing directions to the Chief Postmaster General, Kerala Circle that only HSG I posts of General Line cadre should be identified for Postmaster Grade III and not HSG I posts of IP Line.

Hoping for positive action please.

Yours sincerely,

(Roop Chand)
General Secretary
