Official Side – Old Items:
Item No. 1-08/2014:
Restriction  on Rule 38 transfers in respect of Visakhapatnam Postal Division :
         SSPOs, Visakhapatnam Dn. reported that out of 248 Postal Assts only 34 officials are below 40 yrs of age, Every year the DR vacancies are being filled with Rule 38 transfers from other Dns/Regions/Circle.  The pending Rule 38 transfers to Visakhapatnam Region are 13.  Out of these some are again above 40 years of age.  Thus Visakhapatnam division is not having a fair proportion of younger generation staff who are well versed with computers and physically mobile and agile staff who can easily adopt to the rigors of the new environment and projects.   Hence  a proposal  was sent to CO on  4.7.2013 vide  RO, VM letter ST/38/110  and requested to review the position to approve the decision to stop incoming Rule 38 transfers for a period of 5 yrs in view of inability of older staff to cope up with the new skill sets.
CO vide letter s/Misc/R-38/2011 dt 19.7.2013 has examined  and the suggestion is not agreed to as  (1) There are no Directorate orders to stop Rule 38 transfers  all together.  (2)The Divisions in Hyderabad City Region, every year Rule 38 transfers are being approved to fill almost all the DR Vacancies and many candidates joining in Hyd. City Region are in young age group. (3) In accepting incoming Rule 38 transfers to Units in Hyd City Region, minimum two years  service condition is being observed and the request are  balanced between spouse category and long pending request  etc.,
Due to change of new environment and projects of IT like CBS etc., it is felt that the issue may be reexamination in the ensuing RJCM meeting to be held on 6.8.2014.

Decision:               Report of the committee is yet to be received.  

Item No. 2-08/2014:As per the CO instructions vide letter ST/Postman/Misc/2012 dated 23.8.212, a minimum service of  10 years is  stipulated as eligibility for posting to the grade of Mail overseer/Sorting Postman/Head Postman and cash Overseer.  It is also mentioned by the Directorate in letter No. 44/17/76/SPB I dated 7.2.1977 that there is no relaxation of minimum service for any category.
             The Postmen who are having 10 years and above service are unwilling to work as Mail overseer.  If the condition of minimum service is not waived, the posts of Mail overseer will have to be kept vacant.  Due to non filling up of the posts of Mail overseers    difficulties are being faced   in respect of
(1)   Cash conveyance to the SOs
(2)   Verification of High value withdrawals is pending which is resulting in frauds in BOs.
(3)   BO visits could not be operated.
(4)   Cent percent verification of identified offices are pending.
(5)   Cent percent verification of all BOs is pending.
(6)   Verification of money orders and other works.
(7)   Sub Divisional Heads do not have sufficient assistance in mobilizing Savings Bank/Rural Insurance business for want of Mail overseers.


Decision: Instructions were issued to Regions / Divisions in HCR as per the decision taken in the 111st RJCM Meeting held on 11.11.2014 vide Circle Office letter No. ST / UNION / MailOverseer / 2014 dated 10.12.2014.  Report was also submitted to Directorate on the same.
ITEM CLOSED
Item No. 3-08/2014:This is regarding filling up of Supervisory posts other than selection grade in HOs/A/B/C Class SOs.
As per Rule.223 of Volume-IV, ordinarily sub office in Class-I should be incharge of officials who have passed the efficiency bar. Those in Class-II should be incharge of officials who have not less than six years service. In special cases, however, this rule may be departed from in view of the local circumstances and monetary responsibilities of an office. In such cases it should be ensured that generally senior fit officials alone are placed in charge of sub offices. A satisfactory record of service shall be an essential condition for appointment of Sub Postmaster.
Consequent after introduction of MACP, no specific guidelines / service conditions for posting of officials in B & C Class offices are received.
At present, the posts of B & C Class offices are filled as per the option given by the officials. If no official volunteers for the post, junior most officials with good record of service are being posted by the Divisional Heads. If no official volunteers for C class office, they are being managed on deputation basis & in respect of B class offices; the PA is looking after the duties of SPM.
In view of the above, it is suggested that a decision may be taken for filling up supervisory posts other than selection grade with MACP-III / MACP-II officials, for smooth functioning of the B & C class offices.
If such a decision is taken, a condition in the RT Notification is to be included to the effect that MACP-III / MACP-II officials will be posted in supervisory posts other than selection grade in HOs/A/B/C Class offices. MACP-III/MACP-II official has to give choice of place accordingly from the notified posts.

Decision:Instructions were issued by the Staff Section of Circle Office vide letter No. ST / UNION / Supervisory Posts / 2014 dated 15.12.2014, to constitute committee to examine the issue in detail, as per the decision taken in the 111st RJCM Meeting held on 11.11.2014. Report of the committee is awaited.
STAFF Side – OLD Items
Staff Side - Old Items:
Item No. 2-08/2012:         Irregular Audit objection raised by the P&T Audit for recovery of Incentive paid for NREGS work at Wanaparthy Division.
            P&T Audit has made an objection while auditing at Wanaparthy Division for recovery of excess payment of NREGS Incentive from the two officials.  
As per PMG (BD), AP Circle orders there is no ceiling for grant incentive for doing NREGS Work. PMG is requested for issue of orders to SPOs Wanaparthy not to recover the incentive from the official.

Decision:The matter has been referred to Directorate by IFA section of DA (P) vide letter No. 752 / IFA / PM II / 64 / RJCM dated 09.01.2015 requesting to supply the copy regarding instructions on payment of incentives and other annual ceiling.

Item No. 1-01/2014:Up gradation of Podili Norm Based LSG SO to HO by down grading Kanigiri. HO:  
              Kanigiri town is situated at 90 km from divisional head quarter i.e. from Ongole. And 30 km away from state highway connecting Ongole and Kurnool. It is popularly known as fluoride affected area. It will take 3 hours to travel from Ongole to Kanigiri and it will be a problem to get bus facility back to Ongole or other popular villages after 07.00 PM. For medical / educational facility staff has to depend upon Ongole.   Due to this staff are un willing to work at Kanigiri.HO. Because of this   work at Kanigiri HO is lagging beyond repair. Posting of a regular Postmaster, Accountant even a sub divisional head become a problem. Even posting adequate PA cadre officials is also a problem. Areas like accounts, SB (NREGS), SBCO are most affected.  This can be avoided by at least relocating the HO to nearby place like Podili which is comfortably placed at 50 km from Ongole and is on state high way. Staff can stay there keeping themselves at an hour distance from Ongole where they can depend for better medical & educational facilities. This will reduce the staff transfer problems and requisite staff can be posted for bringing the HO administration into main stream.
                Connectivity is also most convenient in case of Podili compared to Kanigiri. Table of comparative distances is given below along with attached map. Podili is centrally located for 10 Sos out of 18 Sos under Kanigiri.

Item No. 8-11/2014:Request for not abolishing the GDSSV/SV post despite there has been decline in sale of stamps on the basis of the latest statistics.

It is needless to say what sort of additional work is in store for them once the hand –on – device are introduced and at the stage the   output of this performance by field officials are to accommodate in the office transaction.
v   Already the sale of stamps are being done at counter in the form of PSR collection which is not assigned with time factor for commutation of the work load .The present work load for booking of accountable articles are one and the same  for both type, either   stamps affixed  or cash collected.

v  As per the GOI (3) 2 below SR 164, the officials staying in the residential training programs by paying the fixed rates are to be given special allowance.
v  The plea of passing authorities that the new DA rule w.e.f 1.9.2008 cannot be applied is not tenable. As per new rule from 1.9.2008, except new rates (comprising of three components viz. food bill, accommodation and local travel expenditure} none of the other conditions that were in prevalence as on 1.9.2008 were amended. In fact options to claim on either old rate or new rates have also been accorded to options claimants. While the stipulations are so firm and amenable, the contention that the rules prior to 1.9.2008 are extinct is not correct.
v  For an example , an official in GP 2400/- has to pay Rs.230 per day for compulsory stay in campus at PTC  whereas the same official is entitled to a maximum of Rs.675/-(450+150+75) if they are at liberty to stay outside.
v  The difference between the expenditure under compelled state of affair and the official own choice of stay is only sought to be cushioned in  the form special allowance to be cushioned in the form  of special allowance  to  equivalent to 1/4th of the DA. This underlying principal and spirit of rule for special kind of DA and officials are to suffer the
loss nevertheless legitimate bindings, leave alone, natural justice behold of officials welfare.

But the same are not followed by the divisional heads/disciplinary authorities, which causes the undue delay in finalizing the cases and recovering the loss. There are clear guidelines issued by the Directorate vide Lr.No.4-22/PT-72/INV dated 04/07/1972 regarding action to be taken by the disciplinary authorities in respect of absconding officials involved in the fraud cases. But the disciplinary authorities concerned are not responding in a timely manner as per the instructions issued by the Directorate. For example, the action on the main offender involved in a fraud case held at SCAB SO under the administrative control of Peddapalli division is still not initiated any action according to the instructions stated above. The fraud case was unearthed in the year 2009 but the disciplinary authority has initiated the action on the subsidiary offenders but he is silent and not followed the prescribed procedure mentioned in the above directorate letter.

Hence it is once again requested the chairman of this body to immediate intervention in to the case and to ensure strict compliance of the above directorate guide lines in letter and spirit. The erring officials have to be identified and responsibility may be fixed to the disciplinary authorities concerned.

As main offender was absconded and his where abouts were not known and connected documents were seized by the CBI, charge sheet to main offender could not be issued on 31.07.2013 and it was finalized on 19.09.2014. PMG, Hyderabad Region further stated that action for identification of properties held by main offender / co-offender was taken on 22.06.2009 immediately on detection of fraud without any delay.

Various post offices/PBCs are presently accepting the business from the customers. But various type of methods are adopting for engaging outsiders for booking of the VPP/VPL/BP COD articles as there are no clear guidelines on the subject. Due to lack of clear guidelines Postmasters/In charge of PBCs are not in a position to accept the more number of articles received for booking, which causes down fall of traffic as well as revenue. There are no clear guidelines regarding number of articles to be booked by an outsider per hour/per day.
