Impact of Cadre Restructuring in Post Offices......

1. All Posts of SPMs in single and double handed Post Offices will be Upgraded to 2800/- Grade Pay.

(Out of which 1/3rd Offices will be named for Grade I officials .  Hereafter Grade I Officials have to man Single or Double handed Post Offices Only )

( The Number of Posts for PM Grade I in a Division shall remain the same or may add one or two Posts with reference to the number of single and double handed POs in the Division )

   a. Officials who have obtained MACP I will have to man the remaining 2/3rd SOs .

   b . Selected Offices will be Manned by PM grade I Officials


2. All Posts of SPMs in Triple Handed and LSG Post offices Including Grade I Post offices will be upgraded to 4200/- Grade Pay.

   a. Officials who have obtained MACP II will have to man the SOs

   b . Selected Post Offices will be Manned by Grade II Officials.

( The Number of PM grade II are likely to increase with the corresponding increase in the number of Triple handed and LSG Post offices . 1/3rd of selected Post offices will be upgraded to Grade II )

( The Present PM Grade I offices will be identified for 4200/- grade pay and out of the selected post offices upgraded to 4200/- grade pay , 1/3rd posts should be allotted to PM Grade II )

( At present there are only 52 grade II offices in the circle and after implementation of Cadre Review , the number of Grade II post offices likely to increase nearly to 201 )

3.  There will be no change in the number of Postmaster Grade III in the Circle.


At Present the all the cadres in Post offices including the Postmaster cadre , the Promotion structure has lot of bottle necks .

The number of promotion posts is very lesser than its feeder posts.

eg Postmaster Grade III is 50 
    Postmaster Grade II   is 52
    Postmaster Grade I    is 253

This bottle neck is now being removed after cadre restructuring in the Postmaster cadre and the Promotional aspect becomes pyramid in shape...


PM grade III           -   50
PM Grade II            -  201 
PM Grade I             -  253

Pyramid shape to Promotion


There will be 3 to 4 list of rotational transfers in every Division..

1. Transfer for PA cadre
2. Transfer for SPM under Grade Pay 2800/-
3. Transfer for Postmaster Cadre I, II

4. Transfer for HSG I & II after merger.

Identified Vacancies for Postal Assistants..

1.  On Implementation , officials with 2400/- grade pay will alone be posted as Postal Assistants in POs, DO, RO , CO etc

2.  Officials 4200/- have to man the Post of SPMs, APM, ASPMs etc.

3. The review provides way for officials with higher Pay to man and share higher Posts and responsibilities.

4. Hereafter Officials with Grade pay 2800/- and above cannot work as Postal Assistants..
