All the Postmasters are issued the documents of purpose of holding the meeting and the need of forming one non federated association for the welfare of the Postmaster cadre.

The Constitution and bye laws of the Association was unveiled and handed over to all the Circle representatives for to point out any corrections or the left of omissions.

All the Postmasters presented their opinion with their effective speech. Some of them are :
 
 

1.    The span of promotion period should be reduced.

2.    The Higher authorities should consult with the front line leader, the Postmaster as and when any discussions taken on the business development or introduction of any new schemes and fixing of targets.

3.    Administrative and financial powers should be given to Postmaster to run the office smoothly for the purpose the cadre is created.

4.    As the Postmaster cadre official is taking highest responsibility in the operative unit they should be compensated with Postmaster allowance of 30% and their Grade Pay shold be 4200/

5.    They should be allowed to appear for the limited departmental examinations for promotion to IPs and Gr B.

6.    Also one important suggestion was given by one Postmaster that where the PMs are lack behind to the IPs?  So we should ask the department to fix the pay as per the IP cadre to the Postmaster Grade I and instead of asking for the permission to appear for the IP exam we should ask only for the Gr B exam.

7.    The Adhoc promotion should be allowed as in the case of almost all the cadre in the central government department also in other cadres in the India post

8.    The meaning of the creation of this cadre is ignored by the department and the incumbent on the posts are also deprived from the due rights and benefit.

9.    Where ever the local problems/crisis arises in any division, regions and circle to establish the lethargic condition of the department relevant rules and the laws should be applied. as per the requirement.

10.  The Post offices identified in some circle are not justified as per the work load. In some circle, all Head Post Offices are identified as Grade I offices where the incumbent is paid Grade Pay of 2800. Where as in Head Post Offices General Line HSGII/I with GP 4200/4600 are manning those offices.

11.   Who will bell the cat? Yes any individual could not do so because we have to obey and respect the rules, laws and orders of the department to maintain the decorum as we are also part of Administration. So formation of common platform is necessity of the time.

Before the lunch break, a copy of the resolution passed on the above point is printed and circulated to all the postmasters and got signed individually to present those copies to the Directorate.

After that all the circle representatives are given time to select one person for the office bearer of the ad hoc body that is a pre requisite to apply for a separate association for Postmaster cadre in India Post.

Accordingly, the following Postmasters are elected and as the office bearers of the ALL INDIA ASSOCIATION OF  POSTMASTER CADRE
