Reference: Postal Directorate letter No. 137-64/2010-SPB.II dated at Dak Bhawan the 28th July 2011
Condition 1: If an official looking after the duties of LSG/HSG II/ HSG I after completing requisite service condition, (Required service condition to LSG cadre is 5 years PA service, to HSG II cadre 6 years LSG service, to HSG I cadre 5 years HSG II service) those officials may claim officiating pay under FR 22.
Condition 2: If an official looking after the duties of LSG/HSG II/ HSG I without completing requisite service condition, (Required service condition to LSG cadre is 5 years PA service, to HSG II cadre 6 years LSG service, to HSG I cadre 5 years HSG II service) those officials may claim officiating pay under FR 35.
Condition 3: Posts upgraded by Group C cadre restructure, must have been occupied/posted by regular official at least a day. Or else officiating pay and allowances according to the status prior to Group C cadre restructure may be claimed.
For example: After Gr ‘C’ cadre restructure, ‘B’ class and ‘C’ class SPM posts have been upgraded as LSG status, in that upgraded LSG post, if an regular LSG official had already been posted/occupied then only that post would have been treated as LSG status, and Postal Assistants officiating in that LSG posts may claim officiating pay under FR 35 if 5 years of service not completed. If 5 years completed means they may claim officiating pay and allowances under FR 22. This scenario will be applicable to officials officiating in HSG II, HSG I posts also.
