தபால் அலுவலகம் மூலம் உதவி தொகை -கிராமப்புற பயனாளிகள் எதிர்பார்ப்பு

அரசு வழங்கும் உதவி தொகையை வங்கிகளில் பெறுவதில் சிரமம் அதிகம் இருப்பதால் தபால் அலுவலகம் மூலமே வழங்க அரசு பரிசீலனை செய்ய வேண்டும் என பயனாளிகள் கோரிக்கை விடுத்துள்ளனர் .  தமிழகத்தில் புதிதாக பொறுப்பேற்றுள்ள அ.தி மு க  தலைமைலான   அரசு முதியோர் மற்றும் ஆதரவற்றவர்களுக்கு வழங்கி வரும் உதவி தொகையை ஆயிரம் ரூபாயாக அதிகரித்து  ஜூன் மாதம் முதல் பயனாளிகளுக்கு வழங்கி வருகிறது.  இது தவிர மாற்று திரானாளிகள், மற்றும் மாணவர்களுக்கான் கல்வி உதவி தொகை என பல்வேறு நல திட்ட உதவிகள் வழங்கபடுகிறது.

இந்த நலத்திட்ட உதவிகள் அனைத்தும்  கடந்த காலங்களில் தபால் அலுவலகம்  மூலம்  தரப்பட்டன .  தமிழக அரசு உதவி தொகையை செப்டம்பர் மாதம் முதல் வங்கிகள் மூலம் பயனாளிகளுக்கு வழங்க முடிவு செய்துள்ளது.  மேலும்  இதுவரை உயர் கல்வி படிக்கும் மாணவர்களுக்கு வழங்கி வந்த கல்வி உதவி தொகையை காசோலையாக தராமல்  அவற்றை நேரடியாக மாணவர்களின் வங்கிக்கணக்கில் செலுத்தவும் முடிவு செய்துள்ளது. 
இதனால் உதவி தொகை பெற முதியோர்கள் மாதந்தோறும்  வங்கிகளுக்கு வரவேண்டிய கட்டாயம் இருந்தது. கிராமங்களில் வசிப்பவர்கள் நகர்புறத்தில் உள்ள வங்கிகளுக்கு உதவி தொகை பெற பேருந்துகளில் பயணம் செய்ய வேண்டிய நிலை ஏற்பட்டுள்ளது.  வங்கிகள் மூலம்  A T M  கார்டுகள் வழங்கபட்டாலும்  உதவி தொகை பெரும் பெரும்பாலான பயனாளிகள் முதியவர்கள் மற்றும் படிப்பறிவு இல்லாதவர்களாக இருப்பதால்  பணம் எடுக்க மற்றவர் உதவியை நாட வேண்டிய கட்டாயம் ஏற்படும் .  இது குறித்து பயனாளி ஒருவர் கூறுகையில் தபால் மூலம் வழங்கப்படும் உதவி தொகை நாங்கள் வசிக்கும் இடத்துக்கே வந்து சேரும் .  வங்கிகளில் பெற வழிவகை செய்தால்  நகர்புறத்தில் உள்ள வங்கிகளுக்கு மாதம் தோறும்  செல்ல வேண்டிய நிலை ஏற்ப்படும்.  எனவே தபால் அலுவலகம் மூலமே உதவி தொகை வழங்கும் நடைமுறையை  செயல்படுத்த  அரசு பரிசீலிக்க வேண்டும் என்றார்.

Dated the 15th July, 2011
The Chief Postmaster General
Uttar Pradesh Circle
Lucknow – 226 001

Sub:-      Posting of Sub Postmasters in Single handed and Double handed Sub Post Offices – Reg.

I am directed to refer to your suggestion that instructions similar to those already issued by the Circle may be issued at the level of the Directorate to the effect that the officials who are about to retire should not be given full fledged independent charge at least six months before their retirement in any single or double handed post office in order to frauds. 

2.             The proposal of the Circle has been examined by the competent authority. Reports were called for from the Postal Circles and examined. It has been observed from the reports of the Circles that number of frauds committed by officials  who are due to retire in six months is very minimal.

3.             In view of the above, it has been decided not to put the condition that the officials due to retire should not be given full fledged independent charge of Sub Postmaster ( SPM ) of single handed and double handed Post Offices at least six months before their retirement. However, the Divisional Superintendent  should satisfy himself  that the official has a clear service record with no past involvement of any kind of fraud  cases etc and that he is a person of probity  and has the required competency  to provide quality service. The integrity of the system should not be compromised under any condition.
Yours faithfully,
( B P Sridevi )

            The representatives of only Group-C Unions are included in the Committee on behalf of the staff side.  There is no representative of Postmen, Mail Guard, MTS and Group D.  As the Cadre Restructuring of all the cadres are entrusted to the committee, it is requested that the General Secretaries of P-IV and R-IV Unions may also be included in the committee.

            Expecting favourable orders,
Yours faithfully,

Secretary General.


             D.G. Posts No. 4-7/(MACP) 2009-PC             Dated 30 June,2011

This has the reference to the Directorate letter of even No. dated 01.09.2010 vide which constitution of the Scrutiny Committee was prescribed at Divisional levels for scrutinizing the confidential reports of Postmen, PA/SAs & other Group `C` staff for the proceeding 5 years and grade the ACRs on basis of entries made by the reporting officer in it. The Committee so constituted were required to complete the exercise of grading the performance of the officials within a period of one month from the date of issue of the said order. It was clearly provided that the findings of the Committee shall require acceptance of the DPS/Regional PMG concerned and that the exercise was a one time exercise only.
2.         Service Unions have represented to the Department that the Committee has not been met and contended that the officials are not benefitted at all by its constitution. In the light of the representation made by service unions, it has accordingly been decided to make the purpose of constitution of Scrutiny Committee clear to all concerned.
3.         Hence, it is clarified that the process of communication of APAR`s (earlier ACR's) for regular promotion is equally applicable for consideration of financial ugradation under MACPS. As per existing provisions, complete APAR is required to be communicated to the official concerned from reporting year 2008-09 onward. Where an employee is to be considered for promotion in a future DPC and his ACRs prior to the period 2008-09 reckonable for assessment of his fitness in such future DPC contain final grading which are below the benchmark for next promotion, the concerned employee is to be given an opportunity to represent within 15 days of its communication before such ACRs are placed before DPC. Keeping in view the practice of writing ACRs in the Department to constitute Scrutiny Committee to scrutinize the grading based on the entries in the ACRs where there was no adverse entry exclusively for the purpose of grant of financial upgradation under MACPS. In other cases, where there was an adverse entry in the ACRs prior to reporting year 2008-09, the process of communication of the same was to be applied & representation decided in accordance with the existing provisions.
4.         Some of the Circle have also sought certain clarifications over the issue and the same are clarified as under:-
Whether the Divisional Scrutiny Committee has to just arrive at the average grading based on the grading given during the last 5 years to ease the work of the Screening Committee so that the Screening Committee can easily decide the cases fit or unfit based on average grading or the Committee has to go through all the entries, reassess the performance and award fresh grading ignoring the earlier grading given by the reporting officer/reviewing officer if found necessary ?
Scrutiny Committee ordered to constitute was required to re-assess the grading of each year based ion all the entries made in the confidential reports of the preceeding 5 years prior to reporting period 2008-09 & grade the performance as `Average`, `Good`, `Very Good` etc. as a onetime exercise. Fitness for the purpose of conferment of financial upgradation under MACP based on reassessed grading of the Scrutiny Committee was to be adjudged by the Screening Committee only after acceptance of such finding by the authority mentioned in Para 7 of order dated 01-09.2010 on constitution of the Scrutiny Committee issued by this Directorate
Whether the Divisional Scrutiny Committee can change the grading given by the reporting officer without receiving representation from the official/without disposal of representation /without intimating the initiated officer and whether such revision can be taken as authenticated for further reference. This office is of the view that the benchmark assigned by the reporting officer cannot be changed by the Committee
Grading given by the Scrutiny Committee after reassessing the ACR was required to be recorded separately without making a change in the grading given by the reporting officer/reviewing officer available on the original confidential reports. The finding of the Committee one being accepted by the authority in Para 7 was to be taken as authenticated for the only purpose of financial upgradation under MACPS
Whether the Scrutiny Committee has to carry out the scrutiny/grading of all the officials or has to carry out the grading of only those officials who are due for MACP during the year?
Scrutiny Committee was required to reassess the entries of the preceeding 5 years ACRTs prior to the reporting period 2008-09 in respect of all the officials covered by the orders in the light of the new system of communicating the entries in the APAR effective from reporting period 2008-09 initiated after 01 Apr 2009.
As the formation of the Scrutiny Committee is one time measure, whether Committee has to meet every year in the beginning and carry out the grading work in advance to facilitate the Scrutiny Committee to award financial upgradation under MACP
Since entries in APAR for reporting year 2008-09 onwards are prescribed to be communicated to the officials reported upon and representation made against the adverse entries/grading made, if any is to be decided by the competent authority & final grading is to be arrived at, no further scrutiny of the APAR would be involved. Hence the answer to this part is negative.
5.         In the light of the foregoing , it may please be ensured that where Screening Committee`s have not already met and completed the exercise the same may be got completed within one month and a division wise compliance on the completion of this exercise be sent to this office by 31st Jul 2011. In cases where the exercise has completed and the officials have not been benefitted by the above despite the fact that there was no adverse entry in the ACRs scrutinized, the process of communication ACR`s may at once be initiated and representations called for within 15 days of such communication and such representations be decided by the officer superior to the reporting officer/reviewing officer. Thereafter, Screening Committee may be constituted for consideration of grant of financial upgradation under MACPS, wherever justified and status thereof may also be reflected separately for each Division in the report to be submitted by 31.07.2011.
6.         This issues with the approval of competent authority
