Sub:- Transfer of non-gazetted LSG, HSG-II and HSG-I officials on the plea of station tenure – Case of Odisha Circle
Ref.- i. CHQ letter No. P / 2 – 16 / Odisha Circle, dated 10.02.2017
ii. Chief PMG, Odisha Circle letter No. ST / 46 – 1 / Rlg / 2015 - Corr, dated 02.08.2017
Inviting a kind reference to the letter of the Chief PMG, Odisha Circle referred to above and addressed to CHQ, this is to state that the reply given on the basis of rotational transfer guidelines issued vide Directorate’s letter No. 141-141/2013-SPB.II, dated 31.01.2014 is not at all convincing since the station tenure for non-gazetted staff has been abolished vide DG P & T letter No.69/49/72-SPB, dated 29.08.1973 and No. 69/49/71-SPB I, dated 2 12.1971 where in it has been categorically instructed to transfer such officials to some other post in the same station on completion of tenure. The tenure for non-gazetted Postmasters including HSG is 4 years (DG P & T Letter No. 69/15/79-SPB-I, dated 14.02.1980).
During the last rotational transfer, Odisha Circle has transferred as many as five such Postmasters including this Circle Secretary who has been accommodated in the headquarters for one year only on immunity ground. This time the number may increase.
Therefore, it is once again requested to appraise the Directorate to re-circulate the abolition order issued vide DG P & T letter No.69/49/72-SPB, dated 29.08.1973 and No. 69/49/71-SPB I, dated 2 12.1971 to save the interest of the non-gazetted Postmasters.
