Sub: - Regarding long pending issues of Postal Officers Association (India).


Respected Sir,


All India CWC of POA (I) is scheduled to be held on 17/18.09.2022 at New Delhi. Prior to meeting it is necessary for the association to know the latest update on long pending issues. Few issues are listed below:-


1. Convening of JTS DPC meeting.


DPC for promotion to the cadre of JTS Gr’A’ for the year 2017-18 onwards has not been declared so far the reasons best known to administration. Resultantly, the officers in the line of consideration are being discriminated financially and are construing denial of fixation in seniority at a relevant place of the given vacancy year.


Moreover non-convening of timely DPCs in JTS Cadre and non posting of STS officers by issuing necessary orders on vacant post in circles years together is placing burden on PS Group B officers either of adhoc arrangement or working thereto on downgraded posts without substantial benefits that too in contravention to DOP&T instruction. Authorities empowered to make adhoc-promotion to Group B only up-to three months (Directorate letter no. 4-9/88-SPG dated 14.10.1989) are exceeding their powers on their own without obtaining specific approval from DOP&T.


It is therefore earnestly request to take action for completing the process of DPC adding the vacancies for the year 2016-17 calculated wrongly against 75% quota. Also kindly put in orders to start the process for convening DPC for the year 2018 and onwards taking into consideration all the vacant post of JTS/STS/JAG.
