Only Tamil Nadu and Chhattisgarh circle has reported that their information is ready and waiting for the allotment of slot for submission of information by hand.As there was no response from remaining circles to Directorates letter dated 5/7/2016,reminder was issued on 22/8/2016 with a request to send required information by return of email. The information of 5 officers (who selected in regular DPC for the year 2015-16 vide memo No. 9-02/2015-SPG dated 10/11/2015) about their date of joining B cadre is not reported by concerned circle to Postal Directorate despite series of reminders through email.

After implementation of revised RRs of IPoS Gr.A cadre (which was circulated under memo No.4-10/2013-SPG dated 11th December 2014), some technical problems arised in calculation of correct vacancies.
