Subject: Enhancing the ceiling limit of residence landline & CUG mobile of IPASP in Karnataka Circle -reg
Ref: Tech/3-4/CUG dated 28-3-2016
This is regarding enhancing the ceiling limit of landline & CUG mobile of IPASP in Karnataka Circle, the existing limit is Rs 469/- of landline and Rs 386/- for CUG. This has been discussed with the respected madam and madam assured that, it has to be enhanced to next higher level as the minimum rent charges are enhanced. But now, all IP ASPOs of Karnataka Circle are disheartened by withdrawing residence landline vide above reference letter.
Madam is well aware that Karnataka Circle is in top position in the business activities and technology issues. All the business activities & technology issues require more communication with subordinates and higher authorities. So far the residential landline provided is being utilised by the IPASPs for communication and well as for data purpose for official use and the bill amount above the ceiling limit was being credited by the officers to the Dept.
Now it is very crucial period for implementation of Rural ICT and stabilisation of all the CBS and Mc Camish issues. The officers/officials are struggling hard to complete the day to day work due to network and server issues. Moreover, as per the CO letter No ITP/1-2/2016 dated 29.2.2016, there are instructions to form IT Operation team at DO level comprising all the Sub Divisional Heads and ASPs for escalation and review of IT functioning in the field level. Withdrawing the residential telephone at this crucial juncture in nothing but demoralising the IPASP cadre officers.
All the members of this association are very disappointed with the above referred order. On behalf of all the members of this association, it is requested to issue necessary corrections/instructions to above cited letter and enhance the ceiling limit of land line to Rs 601/- and CUG ceiling limit to Rs 500/- to assure better communication facility to increase the productivity and for the welfare of the cadre of IPASP.
Thanking you madam,
