Subject: Grant of honorarium to IP/ASPs/PS Gr. B/Gr. A Officers deployed during demonetization drive of currency notes at post offices - reg
Kindly refer to this Association’s letter of even number dated 13/1/2017 vide which it was requested to grant of honorarium/incentive to IP/ASPs and other postal staff involved in the demonetization drive so that our employees feel themselves at par with bank officials to your predecessor, but till date no orders are issued by the Directorate.
In this context, IP/ASP Association would like to bring to your kind notice that postal fraternity stood rock solid with the Government and worked round the clock for the success of demonetization drive from 9-11-2016 to 30-12-2016. Most of the IPs/ASPs/PS Gr. B and Gr. A officers have worked relentlessly on Saturdays, Sundays, public holidays and during extended duty hours up till midnight on all working days without any excuse or leave, apart from carrying out their routine work. Thus, our Department contributed the most in the successful demonetization drive and consequently got high-quality appreciation from PMO.
It is further bring to your kind notice that the bank authorities have already recognized efforts of their staff and come out with a benevolent idea of rewarding them by granting/paying honorarium/incentive @ Rs 3000/- per employee involved in the drive. They have also been granted special leave for the extra work attended by them. Our staffs involved in this successful drive also deserve similar appreciation and similar incentive/honorarium purely as a matter of reward for their relentless service.
It is therefore once again earnestly requested your honour to kindly look into the issue personally and consider grant of honorarium/incentive to IP/ASPs and other postal staff involved in the demonetization drive so that our employees feel themselves at par with bank officials.
This Association expect a positive reply in this regard which will definitely motivate our cadre officers and the postal staff for such additional work.
