Appointment under relaxation of rules:- It is learnt that process of compassionate appointments in the AP Circle for the post of Posts of PA/Postman/Mail Guard/MTS has not been completed so far, even after identifying the posts. The reason for the above, it is learnt that the authorities are insisting for the fulfilment of required educational qualification with the prescribed percentage of marks as in the recruitment rules of PA/Postman/Mail Guard/MTS.
Though the applicants have fulfilled the parameters prescribed by the Directorate for compassionate appointments, department is insisting the applicants to opt for the lower post in the name of above 60% marks in 12th class and 10th class. Because of this, the applicants who have the intermediate qualification are forced to take the lower cadre post of Postman/MTS instead of PA/SA.
The spirit of compassionate appointment is essentially in relaxation of recruitment rules. Hence, insisting part 60% of marks in 12th and 10th class is against the natural justice. It is requested the chairman to relax the recruitment rules by not insisting the percentage of marks issue appointment orders to the applicants who are selected on the basis of parameters prescribed for the appointment under relaxation of recruitment rules.
AP Open School Society Certificate: -The educational courses conducted by the AP Open School Society are recognised by the Counsel of Boards of School Education in India (COBSE) which is responsible for verifying genuineness/recognition of school education boards in India. The SSC certificates issued by the Govt. of AP for those who have studied in the AP Open School Society should be accepted for employment (order copy enclosed). Hence, it is requested to accept such educational certificates for compassionate appointments in the cadre of MTS.
