Request to issue repatriation orders in PS Gr.B cadre

No. GS/AIAIASP/PS Gr./DPC/2014                              dated :  29/12/2014

To,
Shri V. P. Singh,
Dy. Director General (P)
Department of Posts,
Dak Bhawan, Sansad Marg,
New Delhi -110001.

Subject:     Request to issue repatriation orders in PS Gr. B cadre.

Respected Sir,

          It is learnt that Directorate is releasing the result of supplementary DPC for promotion to the cadre of PS Gr. B for the year 2013-14.  

          I would like to bring to your kind notice that Directorate has not given proper attention to this Association’s letters of even number dated 30/12/2013, 20/2/2014, 25/3/2014 and 4/10/2014  vide which it was requested to issue orders for convening supplementary DPC for promotion to the cadre of PS Gr. B and also consider repatriation of all Group B officers who have completed one year in outside Circles. There is acute shortage of IP/ASP/JTS/STS manpower in almost all the Postal Circle and every cadre man is overburdened. This is adversely affecting the implementations of many upcoming projects in Department of Posts. In many Circles upto 80% of Group “A” post are lying vacant and PS Group “B” officers are officiating against these posts constantly for years together creating resultant vacancies in Group “B” and imbalances upto IP/ASPs level.

It is therefore once again requested to consider the request of the PS Gr. B officers for repatriation to their parent circle at the same time of release of result of supplementary DPC for the vacancies 2013.  

          With New Year’s greetings,     
          Yours sincerely,

Sd/-

Subject : Irregularity in seniority list of Inspector Posts cadre for the year 2000.

R/Sir,
          I am enclosing herewith copies of representations dated 06/03/2013 and 23/12/2014 received from S. N. Shastri, Offg. Sr. PM, Dhule HO (Maharashtra Circle) addressed to CPMG, Maharashtra Circle, Mumbai regarding correction in seniority list of Inspector Posts cadre for the year 2000.

          The above named officer in his representation dated 6/3/2014 categorically stated that he has appeared for Inspector Posts Examination 2000 held on 23rd to 25th April 2001 and his result was declared under Directorate Memo No. A.34013/3/2001-DE dated 16/21 August, 2007. While declaring the result of said officer, it was already mentioned in the letter ibid that officer’s name will figure at Sl. No. 5 of Maharashtra Circles successful candidates list. Recently, Directorate vide Memo No. 9-09/2011-SPG dated 18/12/2014 has circulated seniority list of Inspector Posts cadre for the year 2000 in which above named officer’s name was not reflected.

This Association would like to bring to your kind notice that due attention was found not given to officer’s representation dated 6/3/2013 either at Directorate or at CO Mumbai and therefore his name was missing from the seniority list. It is therefore requested to kindly issue necessary corrections in the seniority list of Inspector Posts cadre for the year 2000 and also steps may kindly be taken to recirculate the corrected list at the earliest.  

          With regards,
Yours sincerely,

‘One rank, one pension’ scheme before next Budget: Parrikar


Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar today said the ‘one rank, one pension’ policy would be implemented in the defence forces before the next Budget.
“One rank, one pension policy will be implemented. We are right now working on its detailing,” Parrikar said. The implementation has lot of financial implications which are being worked out, he said.
“It has a lot of financial implications. Details would be available only once we work it out,” Parrikar said.
‘One rank, one pension’ policy means soldiers of the same rank and same length of service get the same pension irrespective of their retirement date. Parrikar said the announcement to implement the policy was made in the last Budget.
“Now we will have to implement it. I have kept a target that it will be implemented before the next Budget. My effort is to ensure that it should be implemented as soon as possible. My target is that it should not wait for the next Budget,” he said.
Raising the issue in the Lok Sabha recently, the Congress had accused the government of delaying the implementation of the scheme. The OROP had been announced in the Interim Budget in February, but was yet to be implemented, Congress MP from Rohtak, Deepender Hooda, said in Parliament.
Deepender Hooda accused the bureaucracy of trying to dilute the original meaning of OROP as defined by the Koshiyari Committee, which was the petition committee of the Rajya Sabha. Hooda had asked the government to come out and announce the implementation of OROP. — PTI

PM’s Message to the Nation on Good Governance

·    सुशासन - Good Governance is the key to a nation’s progress. Our government is committed to providing a transparent and accountable administration which works for the betterment and welfare of the common citizen.

·    “Citizen-First” is our mantra, our motto and our guiding principle. It has been my dream to bring government closer to our citizens, so that they become active participants in the governance process. During the last seven months, our government has been consistently working towards this goal. mygov.in and interact with PM  seek to  make this engagement meaningful. The unprecedented response which these initiatives have evoked, places a large responsibility upon us, and I assure you, my countrymen that we will not let you down.

·    An important step for Good Governance is simplification of procedures and processes in the Government so as to make the entire system transparent and faster.  The push towards self-certification in place of affidavits and attestations is another indicator of the relationship of trust between the citizens and the Government. Doing away with cumbersome and out-dated legislations which no longer have relevance is another focus area.  Already Appropriation Acts have been identified for repeal and more Acts are being reviewed. 

·    Our government considers redress of public grievances as a very important component of a responsive administration. I have instructed all the Ministries to ensure that redress of public grievances receives the highest priority.

·    Government process re-engineering is yet another measure that we are pushing for. Ministries and Departments of the Government of India have been instructed to look into their work spheres, their internal processes and work on what and how to simplify and rationalise them. We are also working on a simpler internal work process manual, which would be delivered through an e-learning module.

·    I strongly believe that technology can and must bridge the divide between the government and the citizens. Technology is an empowering tool for the citizen and an accountability medium for the government. My government fully recognises the huge potential of this tool –Digital India aims to transform the country into a digitally empowered society and knowledge economy.  Proposed to be implemented in phases, Digital India is transformational in nature and would ensure that Government services are available to citizens electronically.  It would also bring in greater accountability through mandated delivery of government’s services electronically. 

·    The effort to usher in an era of सुशासन has just begun, and begun on a very promising note. An open and accountable administration is what we had promised to deliver and we will do so.

·    Today is the birthday of our beloved leader, our former PM Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee. On this occasion, we reiterate our commitment towards providing transparent, effective and accountable governance to the people of this country. Let us embark on this mission for good governance together.

       Jai Hind.
