Central Working Committee Meeting

The General Secretary of our association called me over phone and intimated that it was proposed to hold CWC meeting in September 2016. The probable venue of the meeting would be Mathura, Delhi or Chandigarh.  The main aim to discuss about cadre restructuring of our Cadre.  I request all the members to send their proposal if any on the subject so that a consolidated view of the circle will be presented in the CWC.

7th CPC and Trasnport Allowance

Members have brought to my notice that the Transport Allowance at the higher rate i.e. Rs.7200 is not drawn by DDOs while fixing the pay after upgradation to Rs.5400 GP. I along with our President Mr. Shabbeer met Sri Ranganath Shyam DA (P) and appraised the position and submitted a representation with a request to allow Rs.7200 TPA.  If the same is not allowed it is proposed to take up the issue with Directorate thru CHQ.  There is further some anamoly while fixing the pay on getting increment and the pay martix is designed in such a way that many are going to put to loss and the same also will be taken up with CHQ.

First of all let me to say sorry for not keeping the blog updated for several reasons.  The latest and important events took place is as follows in the circle:


1. Formation of Telangana Postal Circle:  The directorate has issued orders for the formation of new postal circle to Telangana state.  The present CPMG Sri Y. P. Rai took the additional charge of CPMG Telangana Circle on 15-07-2016 and continued for some time. Further Sri M. Eleesha PMG Hyderabad Region is given current duties of CPMG, Telangana Circle.  


All circle level category staff were asked to submit their option on to work in AP or Telangana Circles and the process of finalisation of the option is on the way.

I hope that all our officers might have submitted their choice by this time.

2. The directorate has issued the panel of HAG officers and our ex DPS Vijayawada Sri B. Chandrasekhar is in the list and aspiring to be CPMG Telangana Circle.

3. It is learnt that the file of PMsG panel also came back from Minister and our two Directors viz. Ms. Radhika Chakravarthy and Ms. T. M. Srilatha are in the panel and expecting posting orders soon.

4. 7th Pay Commission: The much awaited 7th Pay Commission report has come out and the orders for its implementation also released from Directorate.  Specific orders were issued to implement the same from August 2016 and also to release arrears of pay also.  One expert committe has been constituted to examine the various allowances which includes HRA etc.  One sitting of the meeting was also held and no further news on this.

I request all the officers to go thru the orders and intimate if any item is to taken up on pay fixation etc, so that the same will be taken up with Directorate thru CHQ.

I also request all the officers to submit a note on cadre restructure of our Group-B and Group-A cadres so that this will also be taken up with Dte thru CHQ. 

The four monthly meeting with CPMG is called for and the dates are yet to be received.

May 20, 2016

Consequent on the meeting with CPMG Sir on transfers issue the CO has issued orders, still by posting some officers outside the region which was disappointing. The Association tried its best to avoid it but in vain. Blessing in disguise is some officers were not changed eventhough they were asked to give willingness.  Following are the transfers issued by CO:

1. Sri O. Vijaya Kumar SSP Ongole to SSP Nizamabad
2. Sri Sadiq SP Narsaraopet to SP CSD Hyderabad
3. Sri Basha SP Kadapa to SP Sangareddy.
4. Sri Harikrishna Prasad AD-I Kurnool to Vijayawada Region
5. Sri J. Pandari SSP (adhoc) Nizamabad as SP Karimngar
6. Sri G. Srinivasa Murthy SP Karimnagar to Kurnool Region

Sri Janardhana Reddy SPOs Sangareddy is given adhoc as Chief Postmaster Hyderabad GPO and relieved. He is expected to join shortly. The association conveys its best wishes to all the officers.

Few of our members called me over phone on 5th May evening on receipt of some email from CO seeking them to opt for 3 regions for posting as Group-B officers.  That was news for us since no such move was taken place in the circle earlier.  The movement of the Group-B is confined to regions only till this day.  In this connection myself and Sri Shabbeer AD (Tech) and our President met Chief PMG on 6th May morning and expressed our concern and also the fears of our members.  The Chief PMG clarified that the officers may opt their present circle also as one of the regions and instructed the concerned to act on that.  In regard to inter regional movements the CPMG stated that Group-B is a circle cadre and assured us to accommodate the officers to the extent possible in the home region itself.  Accordingly I also had a talk with 5 such officers over phone and advised the developments of the meeting. Let us hope positive decision from our Hon'ble CPMG.

Sri S K Sinha Member (Planning) is given as additional charge as Secretary Department of Posts consequent on the superannuation of Smt. Kaveri Benarjee on 30-04-2016. The arrangement is for a period of 3 months or till regular arrangement is made.
 
I have addressed a letter to Chief Postmanster General AP Circle on supply of vehicles to the divisions which was acknowledged by CO and directed AD (Mails) to look into the same. I am sorry to note that the divisional heads are still using the condemned vehicles for inspections which is risky and the same is pointed out in my letter. I will pursue the matter further and if any need it will be taken up with Directorate also.
