GS writes to DG Posts seeking reduction in the quota of General Line officials for Group B exam

No. CHQ/PS Gr B - GL/2011 Dated 28.03.2011


The Director General
Department of Posts,
Dak Bhawan, N Delhi 110001

Sub: Quota of General Line in PS Group “B” Examination – reg.

Ref: Postal Directorate Memo No. A-34012/02/2010-DE dated 16.03.2011

Respected Madam,

The present Recruitment Rules of PS Group “B” provides 6% of posts to General Line officials to be filled up through LDCE. Now, on introduction of Postmaster cadre carved out from General Line, 25% posts in Sr. P.M. cadre have been earmarked for HSG I General Line officials through promotion. Hence, out of 116 posts of Senior Postmaster, 29 posts have been given to General Line with out reducing their share in PS Group “B” cadre. This has adversely affected the promotional avenues of IP Line officers.
In view of above fats, it is requested to kindly reduce 6% share of General Line officials to 3% in order to compensate IP Line before notifying the vacancies for the ensuing PS Group “B examination scheduled to be held on 15.05.2011.
A positive action will be highly appreciated.
Yours sincerely,
(Roop Chand)
General Secretary
