Farewell Message from General Secretary

The XXXVI All India conference of our Association is being held in Delhi in a crucial period when the prospects of Inspector and Assistant Superintendent Posts are being threatened by ad hoc cadre management by the Department and Govt. of India. I owe my deep gratitude to all members of this Association for having reposed faith in me in the All India Conference held at Kelva Beach, Palgarh, near Mumbai in the year 2005 to lead this organization as the General Secretary. During the two terms I had held the post, I did my best to discharge the duties cast upon me without fear of reprisal. In retrospect I am happy to place on record the specific achievements during my tenure like (i) conferment of gazetted status to the post of ASP, (ii) Free supply of newspaper at the residence of ASP (iii) Reimbursement of mobile phone recharge coupon/residential telephone bill (iv) Allotment of willing surplus qualified Inspector Posts candidates to other Circles, (v) Re-allotment of women Inspector Posts to respective home Circle under spouse category without waiting to complete mandatory waiting period etc. (vi) Supply of Laptop to all Sub Divisions. I believe I have also contributed in my own way to make ours a vibrant organisation by infusing courage and conviction in the minds of our members.

Though this organization is more than 30 years old, major problems like maintaining parity with analogous cadres, lack of adequate promotional avenues, loss of credibility etc. still persist and need to be tackled in a coordinated manner with the administration. I whole heartedly thank every one of our members for his unstinted support to me and the cause pursued by me so far. All our members need to understand the vital importance of a coordinated approach. I have full faith in the capacity of our members and wish this crucial All India Conference at Delhi will show the right direction and support to the CHQ.

Yours sincerely,

/S. Samuel/
General Secretary

AIC held in New Delhi on 3-4 April 2010

The 36th All India Conference of the Association was held 3-4 April 2010. This was preceded by CWC meeting on 02.04.2010. Delhi Circle hosted the conference in a befitting manner. Sri Roop Chand, ASP, Speed Post Centre, New Delhi who was one of the Asst. General Secretaries in the outgoing body was elected as the new General Secretary for a term of two years (2010-2012). Sri Dinesh Khare of Karnataka Circle was elected as the new President, CHQ. Sri Pitabasa Jena of Orissa Circle was elected as Asst. General Secretary-II. Orissa Circle Branch of AIAIASP congratulates the new set of Office-bearers and hopes that the new CHQ body will bring glory for the Association through its noble efforts. Orissa Circle Branch is always there to extend its best possible cooperation to the CHQ as it has done in previous years.

Ms. Radhika Doraiswamy, Secretary(Posts) was kind enough to address the delegates in the Open Session on 03.04.2010. Among other things, she mentioned that the Department of Posts had submitted proposal for upgradation of GP of IPs, ASPs and PS Gr.B twice but the Finance Ministry did not accept the proposal. She added that she would take further steps for upgradation of GP of IPs.

The issue of upgradation of GP of IP was deliberated upon vividly in the General Body meeting during the AIC. Unanimity on the question of merger of IP and ASP cadre or ASP and PS Gr.B Cadre could not be reached. However, out of 19 Circles represented in the AIC, 11 Circles including Orissa gave opinion supporting merger of IP and ASP cadres. NE Circle went with the opinion of majority Circles. Six Circles opined for merger of ASP and PS Gr.B cadres. One Circle opined for maintaining the status quo.

The General body empowered the CHQ to take steps in the direction of getting the GP of IPs upgraded to Rs.4600/- by way of merger of IP and ASP cadres if such a proposal comes up before the Association as a necessary condition for upgradation of GP of IPs to Rsa.4600/-. However, it was resolved to get the following conditions fulfilled at the same time.
The merged cadre should be given nomenclature as ASP with Gazetted status.
The ASP promotion already given to senior IPs should be ignored as promotion for benefits under MACPS
The merged cadre should get the upgraded GP of Rs.4600/- from 01.01.2006.
It is learnt from the source of the new GS that a delegation from the Association side including the new GS and the former GS Sri S Samuel held discussion in a meeting with Secretary (Posts), Member (P) and DDG(Estt) on 05.04.2010 on the question of upgradtion of GP of IPs. Directorate showed keenness to submit the proposal to Ministry of Finance again.

New Chief PMG of Orissa assumes office

Ms. Hilda Abraham (IPoS 1979) has taken over as Chief PMG, Orissa Circle on 05.04.2010 A/N. She was previously working as PMG, Calicut.

Orissa Circle Branch of AIAIASP extends her a hearty welcome

Dear Comrades,


Below Benchmark gradings in ACRs prior to the reporting period 2008-09 and objective consideration of representation by the competent authority against remarks in the APAR or for upgadation of the final grading

Dear Comrades,
DOPT issued a clarification on the above subject vide Memo No.21011/1/2010-Estt.A dated 13/04/2010.
The question of treating the grading in the ACR which is below the benchmark for next Dromotion has been considered in this De~arbnenat nd it has been decided that if an employee is to be considered for promotion in a future DPC and his ACRs prior to the period 2008 09 which would be reckonable for assessment of his fitness in such future DEcSont ain final grading which are below the benchmark for his next promotion, before such ACRs are placed before the DPC,the concemed employee will be given a copy of the relevant ACR for his representation, if any, within 15 days of such communication. It may be noted that only below benchmark ACR for the period relevant to promotion need be sent. There is no need to send below benchmark ACRs of other years As per existing instructions, representations against the remarks or for upgradation of !he final grading given in the APAR (previously known as ACR) should be examined by the competent authority in consultation, if necessary, with the Reporting and the Reviewing Officer, if any. While considering the representation, the competent authority decides the matter objectively in a quasi-judicial manner on the basis of material placed before it. This would imply that the competent authority shall take into account the contentions of the officer who has represented against the particular remarkslgrading in the APAR and the views of the Reporting and Reviewing officer if they are still in service on the points raised in the remesentation vis-a-vis the remarkstaradinas given bv them in the APAR. The UPSC has informed this
Departrnent that the Commission hasobsebei that while deciding such representations,t he competent authorities sometimes do not take into account the views of RewrtinaIReviewina Officers if thev are still
in service. The Commission has further observed that in a'majGty of succ cases, the competent authority does not give specific reasons for upgrading the below benchmark ACRlAPAR gradings at par with the benchmark for next promotion.
