CS writes to CPMG thanking for issue of orders of ACP

The CS writes to CPMG as follows:
Dated 22.10.2008

Sri K V Sundar Rajan
Chief Postmaster General
Orissa Circle
Bhubaneswar 751001

Sub: Problems of IP/ASP Cadre

Respected Sir,

On behalf of this Association I write to convey our deep sense of gratitude to your goodself for issuing orders dated 16.10.08 (released on 22.10.08) granting ACP to Inspectorial Staff of this Circle, bringing an end to the wait that lasted nearly three long years.
The Association also expresses its sincere thanks to your goodself for releasing orders granting reimbursement of residential/mobile telephone charges to all IPs and ASPs which was unreasonably held up for last three months despite decision taken in the last CMC meeting in July 2008.
These two steps will now help improve the otherwise sagging morale of the IPs and ASPs some extent.
As regards reimbursement of residential and/or mobile telephone charges, functional and operational justification is said to be rationale for granting it. In that case, the IPs & ASPs have greater functional and operational justification than AAOs for residential / mobile phones. But the monthly limit for IPs & ASPs is now fixed at Rs.500/- whereas AAOs are enjoying the facility upto Rs.848/- per month. In some Circles like Tamilnadu and West Bengal, the reimbursement limit for IPs/ASPs and AAOs is same i.e. Rs.750/- per month (as per the copies of orders issued by these Circles supplied earlier). But Orissa Circle is extra generous to AAOs by allowing them the limit of residential telephone expenses upto Rs.848/- per month while the IPs/ASPs could now be able get only Rs.500/- per month after a protracted struggle. This is too little and too late. The Association therefore, sincerely hopes that your goodself will do justice to IPs/ASPs by raising the limit on par with AAOs in this respect.
The Association also requests your goodself to kindly consider the representations of IPs/ASPs submitted for inter-region transfers.
Thanking you once again & with regards,
Yours faithfully,
(B B Mohanty)
Circle Secretary
