Cadre Restructuring .....

Impact on Senior Officials.

1. Nearly 2000 senior officials would get LSG Promotion in the nearing Months...

2. HSG - I and HSG - II Posts to be filled immediately with the available staff..

3. HSG NFG will be granted to officials who have completed 2 Years in HSG I as on date...

4. After filling up HSG -I , HSG -II and LSG Posts.. Department will proceed DOPT for granting One time relaxation to fill up all vacant HSG-I , HSG-II posts , LSG Posts ..

5. There would be lesser problem for HSG I and HSG II officials when compared to LSG..

Classification of Senior Officials..

1. Likely to retire within 10 years and not before 7 years
2.Likely to retire within 7 years and not before 4 years
3. Likely to retire within 4 years..


a.  7 to 10 years

        Officials who have completed 20 years of service and already in  4200/- grade pay and if promoted to LSG may have to Accept the promotion since their next Promotion to HSG II  would fall within the next 6 to 8 years .
       They may retire as Postmaster HSG II .  Since the number of HSG II Posts have been enhanced they can get posted in the same Division ..

b. 4 to 7 years

       Officials who have completed 20 years of service and already in 4200/- grade pay and if promoted to LSG may have atleast one chance to become HSG II before retirement . Hence accepting of promotion is recommended.

c.  1 to 4 Years

     Officials who have completed 20 years as well as 30 years and already in grade Pay 4200/- or 4600/- may also opt for promotion , for they would get a chance to officiate in higher Post during their Retirement ..

Classification by AGE.

1.  40 to 50
2.  30 to 40

Officials in the first classification may be about to complete 20 years and some would have completed  20 years of service and yet there is solid 10 to 15 years remaining for retirement.

They should certainly opt for LSG Promotion without hesitation and may have a good chance of retiring at the highest hierarchy in the cadre..

There may be some dislocation to few officials which they have to manage for year or two.

Definitely the number of Posts and the number of eligible officials would differ to division to division..

1. Number of post higher but officials will be short.

2. Number of officials higher than the Post allotted to the Division.

Since there is acute shortage of staff and countable number of officials have rather retired or gone out under VRS and also in unforeseen demise, the number of officials for the Post would be lesser in the HSG I and HSG II category ..

However the LSG Post would be filled up 100% since the eligible conditions has been brought down to 5 years in PA cadre...

There are also rumors that some are trying to keep the CR under abeyance for a particular period. so that the officials would retire at the present post and station .

There may be some dislocation to officials at High HRA stations and have to sacrifice for a particular time to regain it.

Instead the HRA criteria would be taken up for Modification and as to have an equitable allowance at Metros , Cities and Rural Area so that official would not loose allowances.

Keeping the HRA equal at all stations and providing a distinction like CCA for Metro and High cities would solve the problems considerably..

Otherwise officials would opt for declination....

It is also hoped that necessary orders for Promotion to HSG -I , HSG -II would be initiated at CO simultaneously calling for CRs of officials for Promotion to LSG..


Placement of Postmaster Cadre in the event of CR

Offices below the rank of Grade I ie LSG / Triple handed POs has been placed at 4200/- while the Postmaster Grade I is placed at 2800/-.  

One Post of LSG is also created in Grade I offices and now the Grade I  Postmaster is to supervise another official of the Same Grade Pay. It may also result in contradictions between officials due to authority .

Hence the Cadre Review of Postmaster Cadre is expected within short span of time as the Implementation process of CR is being carried out for Postal Assistants.

The Postmaster Grade I should be definitely placed higher than the LSG and Triple handed post offices by virtue of status and higher fixation of pay is also essentially required.  

This can also be ensured by the following..

1. Amalgamating Grade I and Grade II Posts and allotting 2/3rd to Postmaster Grade I.
  ie . 252 grade I and 50 grade Posts to be merged to 302 and 2/3rd ie 200 Posts to remain as Grade -I 

2. The remaining 100 Posts  may be marked for Grade II so that the number of Posts in Grade II is increased considerably.

3. The 51 Grade III Post may remain the same 

Now the Ration of Postmaster Grade I : II:III
would be 4 : 2 : 1

The Unions should also look forward the Postmaster cadre being taking up in light of the CR for Postal Assistants..

CWC of our AIPEU Gr "C" will be held on 06.03.2017.

Cadre restructuring will be more effective provided all the HSG I and HSG II posts are filled up by relaxing the recruitment rules. LSG should be made divisional cadre wef 15.04.17 so that disturbances to the senior officials will be reduced to the minimum. One post of PA, Philatelic Bureau should  also be identified for up gradation to  LSG.

All SOs should be made no quarters office. Hence most of the quarters office are in damaged condition and not up to the standard. Whenever regular LSG/HSG II/HSG I officials go on leave, Officiating Pay should be granted based on the leave order.

Due to family circumstances and financial conditions of the officials , some of the seniors may not be willing to work as SPM/Trr and such seniors should be permitted to decline the promotion without any link to MACP, as it is  only financial up gradation based on length of service to avoid stagnation of pay.

Waiting list of eligible officials should be maintained at divisional level to avoid vacant posts and all the vacant TSPA posts should be filled up to avoid stagnation of work at HOs and SOs.

As the implementation of cadre restructuring in PA cadre is laborious and massive work, rotation of officials in April 2017 should be postponed to avoid multiple transfers in short time.

Cadre review and rotational transfer 2017


The Cadre Review for Group C TN Circle is at the final stage of Implementation .....Rotational Transfer is to be clubbed with the Restructure of Posts . The Orders are expected within a fortnight so that the RT would also be finalized accordingly....


The Post Of SPM in single and double Handed Post offices would be filled up with Officials Drawing 2800/- Grade Pay in the Pre-revised Pay structure.....

Triple Handed and LSG Post Offices will be filled up with Officials drawing 4200/- grade pay in the Pre-revised Pay structure...

The question now is whether these Post would be filled up at Divisional Level or Regional level...???? in the Rotational Transfer....

If DPC would be called for Promotion to 2800/- Grade Pay ie LSG Promotion , there are nearly 2850 Posts which are likely to be marked for 2800/- grade pay.   The Process of DPC would take nearly 3 to 6 Months for implementation as we can see how the regular promotion for 10 to 15 officials are ordered at CO Level..

The Cadre Review Report clearly states that the post of SPMs would be upgraded ...but there is no clarification as to whether officials would be provided with Promotion and then posted...

At Present all MACP officials drawing respective grade pay may be asked to be posted in the respective offices upgraded under Cadre Review.....

ie..

Officials Drawing 2800/- Grade pay would be Posted as SPM in single handed and double handed Post offices on Seniority basis and then Promotion would be ordered based on the DPC recommendations...

Senior Most in 2800/- Grade Pay may be required to officiate in 4200/- grade pay Post depending on the vacant position in the Posts..

The same may be followed in other Posts....

DPC requires Preparation of Seniority lists , Verification of CRs for Last 5 years and Recommendations etc may take much time in regularizing the Posts as per norms...

Some officials may also opt for declination , since they have already been drawing higher grade pay if LSG Promotion is Ordered..

Hence the present Grade Pay / Level in 7th CPC may determine the Posting of official in the new reviewed Post....

Rotational Transfer for Postal Assistants and Post of SPM in Single / double handed Post Offices would be carried out by the Division themselves based on the Number of Posts allocated to the Divisions and Offices identified for the Allocation.

Other like 4200/-, 4600/- 4800/- / Postmaster Grade I , II , III would be filled by CO based on DPC recommendations..

However the Present Postmaster Grade I offices are clearly identified for higher level of management and skills than the requirement of LSG and they have been trained accordingly... The Grade I offices would be eventually placed to 4600/- in view of the present Cadre review of  Group C Offices...

Postmaster Grade I offices which were carved out and identified ( Offices Identified for Postmaster Cadre ) will also be placed in the revised offices carrying 4600/- grade pay..

The cadre review of Postmaster cadre will be taken up in light of the same ( Group C Cadre review )

Bigger offices from LSG would also get addtional Posts like Head Clerk / ASPM and Post of Treasury would also be placed under 2800/- grade pay and higher depending upon the existing work structure of the  Post.

The Post of Accountants in DO / HO would also be placed in the higher scale..ie LSG or HSG depending upon the status....

The Circle union has also urged the Circle Administration to link the Cadre Review with Rotational Transfer to be implemented before May 31st....

Hence the Cadre Review would bring vibrant change in the official career especially to the new entrants  who have ample chances to get promoted within short span of Time.....
The Logic of Higher Pay Higher Responsibility would also be attained in the Implementation...

Lets Hope for a Better Future in the Department..............
