AS PER DOPT ORDERS F.NO 35034/3/2015-ESTT{D}DATED 28.09.2016 FOR GRANT OF FINANCIAL UPGRADATION UNDER THE MACPS ,THE PRESCRIBED BENCH MARK
WOULD BE ...VERYGOOD...FOR ALL THE POSTS WEF 25.07.2016.
                                 

 IT IS A GREAT BLOW INDEED TO THE WORKING CLASS.THE NJCA HAD ALREADY TAKEN THE ISSUE WITH THE GOVT.
CADRE RESTRUCTURING & POSTMASTER CADRE......

Several doubts have been raised by Postmaster Comrades on the status of Postmaster cadre after cadre review of the existing Post Offices..


The aim of Cadre Review of Post offices 

1. To ensure higher responsibilities for higher pay .

2. To ensure faster promotion avenues than waiting for MACPs
3. To ensure sufficient Assistants are identified and Posted in POs
4. To ensure that right person to be engaged in right post and time.
5. To avoid Deputations to Post carrying less responsibilities but paid more.

Postmaster Cadre 


1. Cadre is newly created in 2011

2. Need to complete 5 years for cadre review .
3. Cadre review will be different from the Group C cadre review.
4. Cadre is not for the Post , it is identified for management of selected offices like LSG and Above which require special management skills



Whether Cadre review can be done for the present Grade I , II and III post offices..

1. NO . Cadre review is not applicable for Present Grade I , II and III post offices..

2. When Post offices less that the Grade I , II and III are being upgraded to next level, the same is to be followed to grade I , II and III .
3. This will apply automatically after cadre review of the other POs..


Then why Cadre review required for POSTMASTER CADRE


1. Every cadre needs to be reviewed every 5 years for additions , upgradation and other development in the cadre.


2. Since 5 years have been completed in Grade I , II,III , proposal for cadre review has been placed to DOPT. along with the implementation of Group C cadre review..


Whether there would be a necessity for grade I officials to take up posts like single, double and triple handed Post offices and leaving the present Grade I Post for Upgradation to Grade II level..


1. May be..............There are wider chances that if the Present Post of Grade I in the Present carved out LSG offices are placed in 4200/- at par with HSG II ( 4200/-) , then if the proposal for placing the Grade I officials at 4200/- is being rejected..


2. May not be....... There is wider chances that if the present Post of Grade I in the Present carved out LSG offices are placed in 4200/- at par with HSG II (4200/-), then if the Proposal for placing the offices at 4200/- is being accepted in line with the cadre review of Group C.



what if Postmaster cadre officials take up lesser offices than the present identified offices with the same grade pay structure...


1.  The Department wanted to carve out suitable and efficient officials from the department for special training and placement in Identified Post to manage the Post Offices in a better way..


2. The Department succeeding in the first level in creating and polishing the cadre..


3. It was unfortunate that the Head of Department retired from service within short period without providing the future path way for the Post.


4. Officers joined latter have to drag the same until now without any enrichment ideas.


5. Now the Department is being considering for immediate cadre review of the Postmaster Cadre so that it can be placed in line with the other existing cadres in the department.


6. If the Department fails to review the Postmaster cadre , then the existing officials have to take up the newly identified posts after cadre review of the Group C post and offices,


7. At present the Officials are provided with lesser grade pay but are being forced to work in offices with very high and heavy responsibilities..


8. It would be quiet natural that the present official would expect higher pay for higher responsibilities..


9. when the officials are reallocated to different offices where there is lesser work and responsibilities and brought to the existing same offices with high pay , the recession would be solved .


10. But the Department would plan to bring the present Grade I offices and Posts to 4200/- a step higher than the present LSG Grade Pay 

         BECAUSE..
  "  IF POSTMASTER GRADE I  IS NOT PLACED AT 4200/- THEN THERE WILL BE NO PARTICIPANTS FOR THE FORTHCOMING POSTMASTER GRADE I EXAMINATION "

" WHY SHOULD WE TRY TO GET 2800/- WHEN IT AUTOMATICALLY COMES AT 8 TO 10 YEARS OF SERVICE AFTER CADRE REVIEW 


"WHEN THE IP POSTS ARE PLACED AT 4600/- IT WILL BE QUIET STUPID TO WRITE POSTMASTER GRADE I EXAM FOR PLACEMENT IN 2800/-  AND EVEN CANNOT TAKE UP IP EXAM AFTER ENTERING INTO THE POSTMASTER CADRE "



Hence it is quiet natural that the existing officials would be sitting with much higher expectations .  NFPE and other associations have taken up different issues in this regard .  But we shall wait for the Department for implementation of Cadre review for Group C and see what happens to the Grade I , II and III offices already identified..


Finally , the Department is also planning to identify Postmaster Cadre for POST OFFICE PAYMENT BANK.. sources say that the present officers of grade I , II, III will need to lead the POPB at urban / rural levels co-ordinating the other branches.


They may also be placed at Branch Managers for POPB with additional pay benefits , since the present Grade I , II , III offices does not come under Cadre review ..


Lets expect the best out........

Room No.214, The Ashok, New Delhi

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Fixation of pay and grant of increment in the revised pay structure – clarifications regarding.

         Following the notification of Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016, this Department has received references seeking clarification regarding various aspects of fixation of pay in the revised pay structure as also pay fixation and grant of increment in future under revised pay structure. The matter has been considered in this Department and the points of doubts are clarified as under:

Sl.No
Point of doubt
Clarification
1. 
As per the provisions of FR 22 (I) (a) (1), the Government servants (Other than those appointed on deputation to ex-cadre post or ad hoc basis or on direct recruitment basis) have the option, to be exercised within one month from the date of promotion, to have the pay fixed under this rule from the date of such promotion/appointment or from the date of next increment. 


Some of the employees, promoted between 01.01.2016 and the date of notification of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 had opted for their pay fixation on promotion/financial up-gradation under MACPS from the date of their next increment in the lower grade. Consequent upon notification of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 i.e 25th July, 2016, the option submitted by such employees has now turned out to be disadvantageous. 
Whether such employee may be allowed to revise theiroption under FR 22 (i)(a)(1) at this stag. 
Under the changed circumstances after notification of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016, the employee may be allowed to exercise revised option for fixation of pay under FR 22(I)(a)(1). Such revised option shall be exercised within one month of issue of this OM. Option so revised, shall be final 
2 
Whether Employees appointed/promoted/granted financial up-gradation during 02.01.2015 and 01.07.2015 will be entitled to grant of one increment on 01.01.2016. 
Since the provisions of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 are effective from 01.01.2016, no increment shall be allowed on 01.01.2016 at the time of fixation of pay in the revised pay structure.
