The Secretary Posts
Department of Posts
Dak Bhawan, Sansad Marg,
Subject : Holding of DPC for promotion and declaration of result to the cadre of PS Gr. B.
IP/ASP Association would like to invite your kind attention towards its letter of even no. dated 30.09.2017, 11.11.2017 and 12.12.2017 wherein it was requested to call for records for convening regular DPC for the year 2017-2018 & 2018 - 2019. But till date Directorate has not issued the list of officers in the zone of consideration to circles. All are well aware that this year DPC is badly delayed for the one or other reasons.
Often it is quoted that as IPO cadre is the backbone of the department and the cadre plays most vital role in implementation of government’s/ department’s policies. But it is also true that IPO cadre is the most deprived and suffered cadre in the department. Vacancies in PS Gr. “B” cadre, which is promotional cadre for IPO cadre, are not being filled up timely. Result of Limited departmental competitive examination conducted in the year 2016 (almost 14 months ago) has not been declared till date and neither the DPC for the year 2017-2018 & 2018-2019 is conveyed till date. Many senior IP/ASP who consider themselves under zone of consideration for DPC, are eagerly awaiting DPC but it seems that many of them will retire without getting promoted to Ps. Group Cadre due to non conveying of DPC on time, IPs/ASPs who appeared in LDCE 2016 are also losing patience . Senior ASPs are officiating in PS Gr. “B” on adhoc basis for a period of 11 months and then repatriated to ASP posts. There is complete uncertainty about tenure of such officers and same is the position with the IPs working as Adhoc ASP. Confirm vacancies in IP/ASP cadre is not arising due to non declaration of LDCE result and non convening of DPC.
This association expects that the competent authority will look into the matter personally and take all required action for redressal of genuine & deserving request being made herein.
With due regards,
