Subject: Merger of non-technical posts in independent units such as PSFS, PSDs, CSDs, PTCs, RAKNPA etc.

[post_ads]
Sir/Madam,

The Department has been in receipt of various references from officials working in isolated units like Postal Store Forms & Seals (PSFS), Aligarh, PSDs, CSDs etc. regarding their transfer avenues (inter-circle and intra-circle) under Rule 38 as these cadres are treated as separate cadre due to which officials working in PSFS never get/apply for transfer under Rule 38.

The matter has been examined in the Directorate wherein it was found that such small units (PSD/CSD/PSFS etc.) remain isolated including in their promotion prospects. Candidates once appointed in PSFS are not able to move anywhere on transfer if they wish to do so, whereas on other hand PA/SA in Administrative offices/operative offices are free to move anywhere on request transfer. Besides, less number of cadres enables a focused approach towards welfare of officials while framing any policy and it is easier for administration for management of cadres.

3. In view of the above, it has been decided as under:

a) Non- technical posts in Level 1 to Level 7 in independent units such as PSFS, PSDs, CSDs, PTCs, RAKNPA etc. would be added to the sanctioned strength of corresponding level posts of operative side, like MTS, PA in PO, LSG in PO, HSG II in PO and HSG I in PO, of the Postal Division, which is covering the geographical area_ in which such isolated establishment is located. That Postal Division shall be the feeder Division for recruiting / posting of officials in such establishment on tenure basis. The concerned Head of the Circle will designate a Postal Division to which the PSD/CSD/PTC will be attached for the purpose . Ghaziabad Postal Division will be feeder Division for the Rafi Ahmed Kidwai National Postal Academy.

However, if suitable officials are not provided to RAKNPA / PTCs by the said feeder Division , the Head of RAKNPA I PTC in consultation with concerned Head of Circle shall post suitable officials from other Divisions (Postal/RMS) in the Circle(s).
Yours faithfully,

DoP : Considering transfer under Rule 38 against vacancies reported for filling up through SSC

DoP : Considering transfer under Rule 38 against vacancies reported for filling up through SSC

Government of India

4. Addl. Director General, Army Postal Service, New Delhi
5. All General Managers (Finance) / Directors Postal Accounts / DDAP

Subject: - Considering transfer under Rule 38 against vacancies reported for filling up through Direct recruitment examination conducted by Staff Selection Commission.

Sir/Madam,

As per guidelines for transfer under Rule 38 of Postal Manual Volume-IV, vacancies left over after considering transfer cases are reported for filling up through Direct recruitment / LDCE. Moreover, transfer under Rule 38 is considered only against concerned mode of recruitment and category of an employee seeking transfer.
[post_ads]
2. It is observed that Circles are not considering transfer requests against reported vacancies presumably for the reason that candidates in relevant category will be allocated on completion of examination process. Examination process is a time consuming affair and the concerned unit has to wait for almost two (2) years for appointment of a candidate from the date of reporting of vacancies by Circles. Resultantly, inspite of availability of vacancies in a Circle, officials from other Circles seeking transfer are waiting for vacancy to arise in subsequent recruitment year.

3. Request for transfer under Rule 38 is made by an employee on personal grounds, primarily for joining their family who are away from their workplace.

4. The matter has been examined in detail and it has been decided as under:

a) Before consideration of transfer under Rule-38 as per the schedule for the year 2019, which will cover the vacancy to be occurred in 2020 recruitment year (O l.01.2020 to 31.12.2020), all applications pending till 31.03.2019 may be considered even if vacancy for Direct Recruitment through SSC/Examinations conducted by the Department has been reported/earmarked.

b) While considering the applications as at (a) above, the following shall be taken into consideration: -

(i) Transfer against vacancy reported or earmarked for Direct Recruitment through Staff Selection Commission (SSC) can be considered if the application was received prior to end of the recruitment year for which vacancy has been reported. [E.g. Applications received till 31.03.2018 can be considered only if relevant category of vacancy has been reported for 2017-18 recruitment year or subsequent recruitment years.] As on date, vacancy has been reported to SSC for (i) CGL 2017, (ii) CGL 2018, (iii) CHSL 2017, (ii) CHSL 2018 examinations.

(ii) Transfer against vacancy earmarked for Limited Departmental Competitive Examination (LDCE) / Competitive Examination limited to Gramin Dak Sevak (GDS) can be made only if the examination for relevant recruitment year is yet to be held by relevant Circle (s), i.e. in case of inter-Circle transfer, examination should not have been held in both Circles. Transfer against vacancy of a recruitment year can be considered only if the application was received prior to end of the relevant recruitment year as explained above.

(iii) Guidelines circulated vide Directorate communication No.141-141/201 3- SPB II dated 31.01.2014 shall be followed for vacancy available till 31.12.2018. Guidelines circulated vide Directorate Communication No. 141-14112013-SPB II dated 31.07.2018 shall be followed for vacancy available during 2019 recruitment year (01.01.2019 to 31.12.2019).

(iv) Since transfer under Rule 38 is permissible against relevant category of vacancy, (e.g. SC/ST/OBC/UR candidate against SC/ST/OBC/UR vacancy respectively), instructions issued by the Government for appropriate representation of SC/ST/OBC, etc. should be followed.

(v) An official belonging to a particular category in Circle-X can be transferred to Circle-Y only if Circle-Y has reported vacancy for that category in the relevant recruitment year and after approval of the transfer under Rule-38, relevant category of vacancy of Circle-Y will be transferred to Circle-X for allocation of relevant category of candidate. [E.g. An OBC candidate of Circle-X applied for transfer in July 2018 can be transferred to Circle-Y only if Circle-Y has reported OBC vacancy for 2018 or 2019 recruitment year. After approval of the transfer of the official under Rule-38, one (1) OBC category of vacancy will be reduced from the total number of OBC vacancy reported by Circle-Y and consequently one (1) OBC category of vacancy will be added to the total number of OBC vacancy reported by Circle-Y for allocation of candidate.]
(vi) This will be a one time exercise to be completed by Circles by 15.05.2019. After completion of the exercise, Circles shall inform the details of inter-Circle transfer made, category-wise, against vacancy reported for Direct Recruitment through SSC. For vacancy earmarked for examinations conducted by Directorate, revised vacancy status shall be communicated to DE Section of the Directorate. For examination conducted at Circle level, concerned Circle will take appropriate action.

Yours faithfully,

Sub:- Regarding premature closure of RD/TD/MIS accounts.


I am directed to convey the observation of competent authority made during a recent review meeting of Loss & Fraud cases held in Directorate on 27.03.2019. In some of the fraud cases committed in the past the modus oerandi adopted was premature closure of RD/MIS/TD accounts without the knowledge of the depositors by making payment to agents or by crediting the account to fake POSB accounts. Therefore, the competent authority has desired that premature closure of RD/TD/MIS and others scheme may be allowed only if depositors are personally present. You are therefore requested to issue necessary instructions to all concerned to ensure this.
