CHQ News : Merger of ASP cadre in to PS Gr.B cadre/cadre restructuring ......Meeting at Directorate

 
As everybody aware that DOP has already finalized cadre restructuring of Group 'C' cadre on 28/4/2014. CHQ has constantly reminded to Directorate for holding of meeting with the representatives of our Association in connection with cadre restructuring of IP/ASP cadre.

CHQ has already submitted a proposal of merger of ASP cadre in to PS Gr. B cadre to Directorate on 20/11/2013. The queries raised by Directorate letter under No. 25-35/2011-PE-I dated 19/5/2014 was also quickly replied on 14/6/2014. Now, meeting is likely to be scheduled in the next week for cadre restructuring of IP/ASP cadre. CHQ has already linked up the merger issue with cadre restructuring subject, as the result of 2nd cadre review was not implemented by DOP even though presidential sanction was issued in 1990 for up-gradation of 245 posts to PS Gr. B. Senior members know this issue very well. We have to discuss the workable proposal at Directorate and for the benefit of the cadre.

It is therefore requested to each Circle Branch to submit their fresh proposal if any to GS immediately, or permit CHQ to take decision at their own for the benefit of the cadre and not at

Merger of ASP cadre in to PS Gr. B cadre : Meeting postponed.

CHQ News :Meeting of the Hon’ble MoC&IT with Indian Postal Service Probationers

 

Shri  Ravi Shankar Prasad, Hon’ble Minister of Communications & IT and Law & Justice, met 13 Probationers of the 2013 batch of the Indian Postal Service at Sanchar Bhawan on 4th September 2014. Secretary, Department of Posts and Director, Rafi Ahmed Kidwai National Postal Academy were also present during the interaction.

While addressing the Probationers, the Hon’ble Minister highlighted the need to expose the young officers to the latest developments and emerging trends in the postal and logistics sectors. The Minister also highlighted the Digital India project of the Government of India to make broadband facility available in every village across the country. This would drive up e-Commerce business in villages. With its unparalleled rural reach, India Post would be best suited to offer delivery services to e-Commerce players. The Post Office can also become a focal point for delivering not only Government services but also e-services to the people as in e-service centres, apart from commercially remunerative services for corporate/private players including conducting market surveys, information dissemination, promoting digital literacy etc.

In conclusion, the Minister urged the going officers to drive change in work culture, focusing on provision of public services by all employees as public servants, & shed the mantle of being “Officers”.
