Meeting of Cadre Re-structuring committee

The gist of the above meeting held today as published in our CHQ blog is reproduced below:

As notified by the Department, I along with Sh. Dinesh Khare, President and Sh. Hari Mohan, CS, Punjab Circle Branch attended the meeting. The same was held under the chairpersonship of the Member(P).

It was apprised to us that data called from Circles on 20-10-2011 has not been received so far from Bihar, J&K, Rajasthan, UP& Uttrakhand Circles.It was disclosed by the official side that about 500 posts of ASP will be upgraded into PS Group"B" cadre and remaining posts of ASP will be amalgamated with the posts of IP in order to make it comparable with the Inspectors in CBDT/CBEC and to allow GP of Rs.4600/= for the amalgamated cadre. At present, 1765 incumbents are working in ASP Grade.

On our demand for allowing Gazetted status for the existing incumbents as on date in ASP grade, it was categorically made clear by the Chairperson that it is not possible to allow the same. However, she agreed to allow nomenclature of ASP without Gazetted Status for the present incumbents. By creation of additional posts in PS Group "B' cadre, the existing incumbents in ASP Grade will get absorbed in Group'B' cadre to the extent of 500 posts and some of them get retired over a period of time so that within a span of 4 years there will no ASP Grade in IP cadre and only feeder cadre of IP with GP of Rs.4600/- will remain for promotion to PS Group"B"/Sr. Postmaster as in case of other analogous post of CBDT/CBEC.

It was agreed that next meeting will be fixed only after the All India Conferance at Bangalore during Jan 2012. In that meeting, the Association has to submit its proposal in black and white on the issue of merger of IP& ASP with Non Gazetted status in the larger interest of the IP cadre.

We are of the view that this is the right opportunity to get restructuring of the IP cadre and also to increase its promotional avenues in the larger and long run benefit to cadre in the form of MACP.
