Sub: -  Orders for opening of salary accounts of Postal Employees in IPPB.

Ref: -   Directorate No. F. No. 17-11/2017 (PBI) dated 07.08.2018.

Sir,

Your kind attention is invited towards PBI Division, Department of Posts’ letter No. as referred above under which orders have been issued for opening of salary accounts by the officials of Department of Posts.

In this Connection it is worth mentioning that most of the staff has opened salary accounts in POSB. POSB is one of major source of revenue for Department of Posts. If the officials are compelled to open salary accounts in IPPB, most of them will close the POSB Accounts and it will cause more revenue loss to the Department. Earlier also we have opposed opening of salary accounts in Banks on the same ground.

When the entire set up of IPPB is established, why the officials of IPPB are not trying to get the accounts opened by the public.

As we have already mentioned on so many occasions, whether this IPPB is going to be parasite on the shoulders of employees of Postal Department and it will become a liability in future.

It has also come to our notice that the offices of IPPB well equipped with all facilities established in the prime location of Head Post offices will serve as back up office and entire work will be done by Postal Staff. Than it is not understood as to what was the need to take staff on deputation from various Banks on very high salaries and some staff has been taken from Post offices on deputation for whom deputation allowance will be paid.

If this will be the style of functioning of IPPB, it could be managed by the officers of Postal Department.

Further as we are seeing that the IPPB is being launched on 1st September 2018 for which grand celebrations are being organized at all levels and crores and crores rupees amount is being spent.

We oppose this type of extra vagancy on launch of IPPB as a grand celebration as it will yield no fruit full result as the survival and functioning of this bank will depend only on Postal employees. No political leader is going to make any efforts for the functioning of this bank.

It has caused more stress on Postal officers and staff as well to make this occasion a grand festival.

We have not seen this type of celebration even at the time of nationalization of 19 Banks in past.

Based on the above fats we would like to urge upon you, kindly do not make the opening of salary accounts by officials as mandatory.

With regards,

Yours sincerely,


(R. N. Parashar)

Sub: Guide lines for transfer to regulate transfer of Group ‘C’ officials – Amendments – Reg.
Ref: DPC .FNO.141-141/2013 – SPM-II Dt. 31st July 2018

Respected Sir,
                  Some suggestions are submitted on the Guide lines for transfer to regulate transfers of Group ‘C’ officials issued vide Dte. No. as referred above for your kind and sympathetic consideration.

                  Para 5-1 (i)Present  post tenure of 4 years should not be reduced to three years, because it will create more disturbance for officials and consequently it will adversely affect the postal services also.

          (ii)  The station tenure of 6 years should also not be made applicable on Group ‘C’ officials. In Cities, Departmental Post Offices are more in no and less in rural areas. Therefore more difficulty will arise in adjustment.
                                  
                 Further some bigger cities are having more than one division. How there officials will be accommodated. Eg.- Delhi, Mumbai, Calcutta, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore etc.
                    
                 It is therefore requested to kindly consider sympathetically on these two aspects and take decision favourably so that the Group ‘C’ officials may get relief and Postal Services should also not be affected adversely.
Hoping for a positive action.
With regards
                                                                                                     Yours Sincerely,

No.PF-67-2/SBCO/2018                                                      Date: 23rd  Aug 2018

  To
          Shri A.N. Nanda,
          Secretary,
          Department of Posts,
          Dak Bhawan,
          New delhi-110 001

Sub: Rotational Transfer of SBCO official as per New Guidelines.
Ref. Dte No. F.No 141-141/2013-SPB-II dt 31st July 2018

Sir,
            As per guide lines issued by the Department vide no. as referred above, the tenure of SBCO officials has also been declared as three years instead of 4(four) years which is in existence now . The station tenure is also declared as 6 years.
            In this connection we would like to bring some facts to your kind notice for sympathetic consideration.
            SBCO was formed bifurcating from the P&T audit purely on Administrative convenience and setup at each Head Post Office. The LDC and UDC working pattern had also been modified all along these years and both are merged and formed as PA(SBCO).
            Till then, SBCO is considered as a unique one and right from the recruitment it has separate identity.
            SBCO is working as such at par with other cadre like Postal Asst (CO), DAP, P&T audit etc., and doing audit work in the present setup.
            While the officials in Circle office, DAP and P&T audit have no transfer to other office unless they are willing or they are promoted, Postal Assistants are liable to be transferred within the same Postal Division whether it forms within a city or not. SBCO officials are liable to be transferred to other HOs once in 4 years and therefore separate guidelines are applicable to SBCO. The promotional avenues for the Postal Assistant cadre is also more. This shows no parity among the cadres.
            It is noteworthy here that the Pay and allowances are same to Postal Assistant (SBCO) like Postal Assistant (PO) Postal Assistant (CO). But SBCO officials are transferred to other HOs in the Division cluster. This involves more expenditure maintaining two establishments living away from family and also not remain in a position to lookup the family being head of family. Sacrificing all these things, the SBCO officials are rendering their best services to the Department and a good custodian of Public money. As such it is strongly felt that treating SBCO cadre at par with other PA cadre is not acceptable.
            It is therefore requested to kindly treat the SBCO cadre as a separate cadre and should be given audit status and SBCO officials should be treated at par with DAP & P&T Audit officials and liability of 3 years tenure transfer should not be imposed on them.
            Hoping for a positive action.

                                                             
                          With regards
                                                                                                     Yours Sincerely,
