Items for four monthly meeting with Chief PMG

The following items have been submitted for the four monthly meeting with Chief PMG to be held shortly.

1. Creation of Sultan Bathery Sub Division

At present the Kunnamangalam and Kalpetta Sub Divisions of Calicut Division are having more number of offices and it is very difficult to manage these Sub Divisions considering its vast geographical area. A new Sub Division (IP) -Sulthan Bathery may be created by carving out offices from Kalpetta and Kunnamangalam Sub Division.

2. Adhoc promotion of IPs to ASP cadre

Many of the ASP posts are lying vacant and they are not being filled up on the plea that 8 posts in the Circle will go to the Postmaster cadre. There is no concrete direction from any quarters to identify IPO line posts for creating the said cadre. This being the position, adhoc promotions to all the vacant ASP Posts may be done immediately pending a final decision on the subject.

3. Reimbursement of Mobile charges.

IP/ASPs in most of the other Circles like Tamilnadu, Andra, Karnataka are being given reimbursement of their mobile charges. In our Circle also, IP/ASPs of Northern Region are being given this benefit. In the light of the good show put in by all the IP/ASPs in achieving PLI/RPLI target, the said benefit may be extended to the Circle as a whole.

Due to the restriction on the number of items (3 only) some other issues like change in the pattern of alloting RPLI/PLI targets, damaging media reports about text book supply scheme etc which could not be raised in this meeting, will be taken up subsequently. An informal discussion about the rotational transfers of IPs/ASPs was held with Chief PMG which ended on a very positive note. The matter is being examined in Staff section and orders are expected shortly.
