Movement of GP File to MoF

Discussion on revision of Grade Pay and merger of the posts IP/ASP/P.S.Gr. “B” between DoP and our Association
General Secretary was invited for holding discussion on the issue of revision of Grade Pay to IPs from Rs. 4200/- to Rs.4600/- . General Secretary along with Shri S.Ravi CHQ Treasurer and Shri Hari Prasad, former Circle Secretary, Rajasthan Circle participated in the discussion on 04.01.2010. Shri A.K.Sharma DDG (Est) and Shri Rameshwar Rao ADG (Est) represented the Department.

It was argued by the Dept. that IPs were not on the pre-revised pay scale of Rs.6500-10500 as on 1.1.2006. But it was rebutted and made it clear by us that IPs were on Rs.6500/- as on 1.1.2006. Their pay scale was revised, pay fixation done and arrears also drawn as on 1.1.2006. Hence IPs are eligible for revision of Grade Pay as per the orders of MoF memo. Dt. 13.11.2009. It was accepted by the Dept.

Then it was stressed by the Dept. that as per the orders of MoF memo. Dt 13.11.2009 the post of IP and ASP should be merged. Also the Dept. putforth an alternative suggestion of merger of ASP with P.S.Gr. “B”. But we strongly objected to it. We argued that there are only 2 categories in this cadre and if these two posts are merged then our promotional avenue will be closed for ever. Further ASP is a Gazetted cadre which cannot be merged with non-gazetted post of IP which amount to de-promotion. At present an IP will get his promotion to ASP after 10 years of service in IP cadre. Then he has to wait for another 18 years as ASP to get his promotion to P.S. Gr. “B”. If merger is accepted an IP has to wait for a minimum of 25 years to get his next promotion to P.S. Gr. “B”. In other cadres there are so many stages for promotion and they enjoy the benefit of increment in every stage. Such opportunity should be available for IPs also. At present an IP hardly reach P.S. Gr “B”. Many of us retire as ASP only. A few people reach P.S. Gr. “B”. That too they retire before getting non-functional Grade Pay of Rs. 5400/-. Hence it is not acceptable the merger proposal which is detrimental to our promotion. The Dept. side was then convinced and agreed to our following demands.

1. Upgradation of Grade Pay of IP from Rs.4200/- to Rs. 4600/-.
2. Upgradation of Grade Pay ofASP from Rs.4600/- to Rs. 4800/-.
3. Upgradation of Grade Pay of PS Gr. “B” from Rs.4800/- to Rs. 5400/-.

With these recommendations the file is moving to MoF for concurrence. I also met Secretary (Posts) and Member (P) on 04.01.2010 and discussed the issue and they are in favour of us. The progress is being closely monitored.
