MUMBAI: Auto and home loan borrowers need not pay post dated cheques towards EMIs as RBI has directed banks to collect monthly instalments through electronic mode wherever the facility for such fund transfer is available.
Banks are advised that no fresh or additional post dated cheques (PDC) or Equated Monthly Instalment (EMI) cheques shall be accepted at locations where Electronic Clearance Service (ECS) is available, RBI said in a notification. "The existing cheques in such locations may be converted into ECS by obtaining fresh ECS (Debit) mandates," it said. The move is aimed at cutting usage of cheques and promoting electronic transfer. It will also save borrowers the efforts of going to branch for collection of cheque books.
The notification also said that ECS also accords the same rights and remedies to the payee against dishonour of electronic funds transfer instructions under insufficiency of funds as are available under Section 138 of the Negotiable Instruments Act, 1881. "Considering the protection available, there is no need for banks to take additional cheques, if any, from customers in addition to ECS (Debit) mandates," it said. Cheques complying with CTS-2010 standard formats shall alone be obtained in locations, where the facility of ECS is not available, it added.

Today, it is learnt from Directorate that, there is no progress in recasting of marks of LDCE for the promotion to PS Gr. B examination 2012 held on 3rd June 2012. Recently Directorate has received one serious representation from one candidate and decisions on various representations including CAT cases received earlier in the issue are yet to be taken by the competent authority. Therefore LDCE for the promotion to the cadre of PS Gr. B examination for the year 2013 is likely to be delayed.

Subject : Inter-Circle Transfer of Inspector Posts under Rule 38 of P&T Manual
Vol. IV—Case of Smt. Kavitha A., SDI (P), Mangalore South Sub Division.
Ref. : Directorate No. 141-5/2012-SPB.II (Misc) dated 5th September, 2012.
IP/ASP Association intends to bring to your kind notice certain issues concerning under Rule-38 transfer orders in the Inspector Posts cadre. Transfer case of Smt. Kavita A., SDI (P) Mangalore South Sub Division was discussed with your honour during the course of meeting held on 6/2/2013 and it was assured that the said case will be decided early. While admitting that transfer/posting is administrative privilege, but it is also fact that DOPT guidelines coupled with Directorate instructions contained in letter No. A-34013/01/2009-DE/SPB-II dated 05/02/2010 for consideration of request of lady Inspectors Posts for transfer to home circle /circle of their choice / place of posting of their spouse are not being taken into consideration while deciding such issues. Though it is clear in said instruction that, the transfer of lady inspectors can be allowed under Rule 38 of P&T Volume-IV without provision of minimum service in the grade of Inspectors of Posts yet this has not considered in Karnataka Circle.
Transfer case of Smt. Kavitha A., SDI (P), Mangalore South Sub Division to her parent Kerala Circle despite having consent under letter No. ST/4-1/2011 dated 20/6/2012 (copy enclosed) is the set example of discrimination. Madam, more than one year’s period have already been elapsed from receipt of consent from Kerala Circle, but justice is denied in this case only on the reason of acute shortage of IPs in Karnataka Circle. We would like to further bring to your kind notice that, her junior’s requests for transfer from Karnataka to Kerala Circle have been considered in 2012 only. Consent given by other Circles to adjust the incumbents, circumstances under which IPs/ASPs are working in the circles has no meaning in as such. Even the humanitarian grounds are not being considered while deciding such genuine issues.
Such type of instances not only cause hardship for the cadre but also demoralizes them thereby effecting business and work of the administration. Madam, you will agree that IPs/ASPs working at farther places from their home, having language problems always face difficulties resulting in frustrations. Moreover lady staff could not discharge their duties to the entire satisfaction of administration particularly when she is far from their families. The sense of responsibility grows even greater when a spouse is weighed down by problems with job, family, kids, health, or social obligations or is coping with feelings of loss, disappointment, and fear at far flung places like Smt. Kavitha.
It is therefore requested your honour to kindly look the matter personally and issue directions to CPMG, Karnataka Circle to relive the official immediately to Kerala Circle.
With profound regards,
Copy forwarded for information to :
