All Heads of Circles
All Heads of Circle Postal Accounts Offices
All Heads of Postal Staff College of India & PTCs

Sub: Admissibility of various kinds of Travelling Allowances in the case of System Administrators, Marketing Executives, PRI(P)s etc.-reg: -

Sir/ Madam,
This is regarding 
(i) application of Road Mileage Allowance to Systems Administrators, 
(ii) grant of fixed Conveyance Allowance to Marketing Executives; and 
(iii) bring the PRI(P)s under TA Rules for the journeys beyond 16 KMs.

2.0 It is reiterated that the Supplementary Rules and the Government Orders thereunder, pertaining to the grant of fixed conveyance allowance, payment of Road mileage and payment of Travelling Allowance to various categories of staff, “including System Administrators, Marketing Executives and PRI(P)s, working in this Department”, for their travels within and beyond 16 KMs, are not only clear and distinct but also their implementation is well within the powers of the Heads of Departments (Heads of Circles in case of Postal Circles).
2.1 It is therefore, requested that the possibilities of payment of Road Mileage Allowance to System Administrators, payment of fixed conveyance allowance to the Marketting Executives may be examined under appropriate rules (ie. SRs 22 to 25, 45 or 46 as the case may be) and Government orders thereunder and decided at Circle level itself. Normal TA/ DA for the journeys beyond 16 KMs from their normal place/ headquarters of duty, may be granted to the PRI(P)s, System Administrators and Marketting Executives, as per the existing provisions available under the Fundamental Rules & Supplementary Rules(Part-II : TA Rules) and Government’s orders thereunder.

2.2 In case the Marketting Executives and System Administrators are also required to travel extensively within 16 KMs, as in the case of PRI(P)s, their cases may also be examined by maintanance of log books for three months with reference to the “GIO(1) below SR-25 prescribing the slabs of distances and corresponding monthly rates of conveyance allowance” and decided swiftly in order to allow the justified allowances to the employees concerned without delay.

3.0 The issue of payment of “fixed conveyance allowance” to the postal assistants assigned the duties of going to Clearing Houses, etc., in connection with clearence of cheques, has also been raised. It is clarified that no such fixed conveyance allowance, like PRI(P)s could be considered for such Postal Assistants as their job cannot be equated with the former. It is therefore, made clear that such officials may be reimbursed actual expenses incurred by them for such visits accoring to their entitlements or prescribed per Kilo Meter rate of road mileage may be granted in case of their journeys carried out through their own scooters/ motorcycles as the case may be, with reference to the applicable rules and instructions.

Mumbai: Having secured Reserve Bank of India’s nod to set up a payments bank, the Department of Posts has said it is open for partnership in this new venture and is in talks with some telecom companies.

“We are very excited about it. We have our own strength in terms of ubiquity which we will be leveraging. We are going to induce digital technology. We are looking for partnership where it will be a win-win situation for all,” M S Ramanujan, Member Banking, Postal Services Board told PTI.

The Reserve Bank on Wednesday gave in-principal approval to 11 entities, including Reliance Industries, Aditya Birla Nuvo, Vodafone, Airtel and Department of Posts, to set up Payments Banks.

Other applicants which received approval for Payment Banks are Cholamandalam Distribution Services, Tech Mahindra, National Securities Depository Limited (NSDL), Fino PayTech, Sun Pharma’s Dilip Shantilal Shanghvi and PayTM’s Vijay Shekhar Sharma.

“We are in talks with telecom companies which have already received in-principle approval today (for payment bank),” he said. “Payments bank is not to be viewed as adversarial competition but as a collaborative competition,” he added.

With 155,015 post offices across the country, of which 139,144 are in rural areas, India Post offers its partner a wider reach. India Post can take advantage of the digital platform provided by telecom players.
