Postmaster's Meeting


Our periodical  formal meetings with higher authorities are giving fruitful results. To retain the successful outcome from those meetings we should be united and be updated with steps and issues taken up with the authorities. We are all born to work and our in puts reflects in the successful implementation,execution and completion of the undertaken jobs by the department.

Recently, our associaion circle president and secretary has attended the four monthly meeting with CPMG. Many of our issues are to be settled at Directorate level for the betterment of our carrier prospects. But whenever we take our issues with Directorate we are asked to come through the Circle Administration. 

Therefore we kept agends for following points :

2. Cadre restructuring proposal for Postmater cadre.
3. Amendments in LDCE rulings of PSSGroup B
4. To uplift the demoralised Postmaster cadre officials.

Hon.CPMG heared our points and discussed far and wide and assured that they will give all possible support to us. 

We were shown and given the copies of the letters addressed to Directorate on the clarification on one time relaxation for promotion of Postaster cadre. The reply is still awaited.

All India Combined gradation list of Postmaster Grade III representation received from the grade III officials are forwared by Circle office to Directorate. The reply is still awaited.

The points raised on enhancement of financial power of Postmasters in SO/HO.

At present the delegation of financial power is very less than the other sanctionin authorities. Hence the financial power of the postmasters should be enhanced. CPMG assured that this issue will be examined.

Sanction of refresment to the staff who detained for special work in extended hours. CPMG assured that orders will be issued on this issue.

In this way our association is serving for this cadre.

Postmaster's Meeting on 12th October 2016

Dear Postmaster,

Season's greetings to you and your family.

We are coming across many good things and hurdles over these years. We made our nest within our work place and maintained very well. But our well maintained nest is not taken as our capacity but as our responsibility by all we come across.

Five years passed for this cadre, no any improvement but responsibilities are build up on us without any justification.  We are having regular meetings with higher authorities and fruitful solutions are coming out from those meetings. Still we  are in short of the required unity.

Delegation from all India of this Association decided to visit Dak Bhavan, New Delhi to discuss some important points on Cadre restructure, Pay anomaly committee and All India combined gradation list of Postmaster Cadre III  and more.

Therefore, to discuss on the above points and more, a meeting is arranged at Mumbai Central on 12th October 2016 at 10.00 a.m,

All Postmaster cadre officials are to attend the meeting and discuss our local issues with Circle administration  and the above points.
