ALL INDIA ASSOCIATION OF POSTAL SUPERVISOR
Subject: Submitting strong objection for eliminating Administrative powers vested with LSG/HSG II/HSG I/HSG I NFG cadre officers in the revision of 'Schedule of Engaging Authority, Disciplinary Authority for BPMs and ABPM5/Dak Sevaks and request to restore existing Administrative powers to LSG/HSG II/HSG I/HSG I NFG officials - reg
Reference: Postal Directorate Letter No. 17-31/2016-GDS dated at Dak Bhawan the 28th July 2020
1. A kind reference is invited to the above cited letter vide above reference, to the height of immense shock, Engaging and Disciplinary authority Administrative powers vested with LSG/HSG II/HSG I/HSG I NFG cadre officers were snatched away from the said cadre officers which was in existence for the past several decades in our Department of Posts.
2. Without any administrative power to LSG/HSG II/HSG I/HSG I NFG cadre officers, Supervising GDS official under their units and extracting work and business development activities will be affected adversely and make these cadres are non functional which will be totally against to the interest of Public service.
3. Before Group C cadre restructure, most of the officials have gotten their LSG and above cadre promotions only at their verge of retirement due to that many administrative duties were not utilised by officiating officials worked in those said LSG and above posts. Now after Group C cadre restructure, many youngsters are started to get their due and legitimate LSG line regular promotions and very effectively administrating LSG and above offices. In this time snatching away their existing rights and administrative powers will totally demoralise their working attitude and as well as achieving various BD/Non BD activities of post offices.
Existing Engaging/Administrative authority duties were not granted lavishly to any cadre in our Department and with all functional justifications only LSG line IPO line cadres etc., were granted such administrative powers. But snatching away such hard earned and justified Engaged/Disciplinary authority duties from only LSG/HSG II/HSG I/ HSG I NFG cadre officers are nothing but biased and irrational.
One side Department is mounting and enhancing the operational work load one by one to LSG/HSG II/HSG If HSG I NFG cadre officers For example PLI/RPLI Policy Bond approval and PLI/RPLI claim sanction limits are enhanced, Savings Bank Schemes claim sanction, Decentralisation of SB and Insurance schemes, in another side snatching away our existing Administrative duties means totally injustice. So LSG/HSG II/HSG I/HSG I NFG cadres should do all enhanced work load in desk work but sacrifice their Administrative rights one by one to totally depend other cadres extract proper work under our units?
3. So this association shall never accept snatching away not even single existing right/duty/authority of our LSG/HSG II/HSG I/HSG I NFG cadre officers in the interest of post offices and requests our secretary posts sir to kindly restore existing Engaging/Disciplinary authority duties vested with LSG/HSG II/HSG I/HSG I NFG cadre officers in Rule 31 of GDS (Conduct and Engagement) Rules, 2020 without fail to upheld existing rights and justice to hard working LSG line cadre officers please.
