CHQ News: Letter to Secretary (Posts) i/c/w Linking of repatriation of PS Group “B” officers to the current DPC.

No. GS/AIAIASP/PS Gr.B/DPC/2013 dated August 29, 2013

Ms P Gopinath,
Department of Posts,
Dak Bhavan, Sansad Marg,
New Delhi 110 001.

Subject: Linking of repatriation of PS Group“B” officers to the current DPC.

Respected Madam,
IPASP Association expresses its gratitude for convening regular PS Group “B” DPC for the vacancy year 2013-14 well in advance giving good time to our members for joining their new assignments. At the same time it is also fact that many JTS posts are lying vacant in circles and Group “B” officers are officiating creating resultant vacancies in Group “B”.This position differs from circle to circle and thereby some of the Circles have not implemented orders pertaining to Promotion of ASPs to PS Gr. ‘B’ cadre issued by directorate in the recently held supplementary DPC in toto. Despite having, clear orders to relive the promoted officers to their new assignments within one month from the date of issue of order, some circles have retained these promotees, particularly officiating in the same capacity, in respective circles without any valid reason though they had been allotted nearby Circles.

Apparently, this action of the CPMG/PMG is not only arbitrary but also has caused disparity in the promotional avenues of IP to ASP against clear vacancies that are due to be caused owing to the promotion of these officers. It seems that due to vested interest of PMG/CPMG in the matter, these officers are retained by Circles. What is the use of promotion when the promoted ASPs are not to be relieved to join the new assignment? Whereas many officers presently working in other circles are still awaiting repatriation to their parent circles giving tough time to them and their families. Furthermore Circles are not sending correct position of vacancies to Directorate perhaps either to retain ASPs of their choice or reasons best known to them. Even the officers repatriated to adjust officers promoted in supplementary DPC have not been relived to their choice circles. It does not mean that there is dearth of calibre in the cadre, rather everyone has the ability to do job as per their ability but they need opportunity instead of adopting pick and choose policy. So on this count there should be clear instruction to follow directorate orders so that no favouritism or hardship is felt at any level.

It is therefore urged upon kindly to intervene and place in orders to call for correct vacancies lying vacant or likely to be vacated owing to retirement or promotion by 31-12-2013 to enable the affected persons adjusted in the parent Circle by issuing appropriate repatriation orders against vacant posts and future posts likely to be formed by 31-12-2013 . Since this has cascading effect and chain reaction, therefore, this would also minimize the refusals of accepting promotions.

A positive action will be highly appreciated & line in reply is requested.

Yours sincerely,

(Vilas Ingale)
General Secreta

Retirement Age 62 – Cabinet decision to increase retirement age deferred

A proposal to increase the retirement age of government employees from 60 to 62 years came to the Cabinet on Thursday but a decision was deferred. The government might make the announcement in the Prime Minister’s Independence Day address, his last before general elections in 2014. The ministry of personnel, public grievances and pensions has proposed an increase in retirement age of government employees from 60 to 62 years, top sources confirmed.
There are around five million central government employees in India. The previous occassion the government raised the retirement age of central government employees was in 1998, from 58 to 60 years. The move is meant to ease the financial burden on the government in terms of its pension liabilities, sources said.
The retirement age of professors in all central universities was recently raised to 65 years. D L Sachdev, national secretary of the All India Trade Union Congress, said his union was totally against the increase of the retirement age beyond 60. It would hurt the youth, especially when the government is doing nothing to create jobs for them, Sachdev said.
Congress-affiliated Indian National Trade Union Congress national president Sanjeeva Reddy said his union had been demanding increase in the retirement age to 62 years and would welcome it.
Minister for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions V Narayanaswami had ruled out an increase in the retirement age to a question in Parliament in the winter session this year. An official in the ministry, when asked, refused to speak about it.
