Change in designation of sorting postman – clarification :

No. 25-20/2008-PE.I

Ministry of Communication & IT

Department of Posts

( Establishment Division )

New Delhi, Sansad Marg

Dated: 12th July, 2011.

To

All Heads of Circles

Subject: Change in designation of sorting postman – clarification

Sir / Madam,

Please refer to this Directorate's letter of even number dated 04.05.2011 vide which the post of Sorting Postman has been re-designated as Postman and both Postman and Sorting Postman have been given a common generic designation Postman.

2. During the meetings of the Staff Federations with the Secretary (Posts), the Federations have raised following issues in connection with the implementation of the ibid order in the fields:

(i) Circles are either abolishing or redeploying the posts of Sorting Postman. Such posts may be restored.

(ii) All the Postman are being put on the job of Beat Sorting at a time.

3. This is wrong interpretation and implementation of the said order of the Directorate. Nowhere in the order is it mentioned that posts of Sorting Postman are either to be abolished or redeployed and all the Postmen are to be put on the Beat Sorting work at a time. In fact, the order is very lucid that post of Sorting Postman is re-designated as Postman. Therefore, such abolished or redeployed posts of Sorting Postman may be restored immediately. The designation of the existing Sorting Postman may not be changed.

4. Further, in the third para of the aforesaid order, it is indicated that concerned Divisional Head or Sr. Postmaster has to work out the exact requirement of Postmen required for Beat Sorting on the basis of the total number un-registered mail received for delivery as per the existing norms. Hence, concerned authorities in the Division to decide the number of Postmen to be put on the Beat Sorting job on the basis of existing norms. Thus, all the postmen are not to be put on the Beat Sorting work at a time. Rather, each one of them should be assigned the said job on turn-by-turn basis while observing the existing norms.

5. Further, the number of postmen deployed for Beat Sorting should be to ensure that Beat Sorting, iscompleted one hour before the postmen leave for delivery so that necessary documentations and procedural requirement could be completed, which are necessary for carrying out the delivery effectively.

6. It, is therefore, requested to please look into the issue personally and ensure correct and effective implementation of the Directorate's order dated 04.05.2011.

7. It may please be accorded Top Priority.

This issues with the approval of the Competent Authority.

Yours sincerely,

Sd/-
