Queries are made to Orissa Circle Branch of AIAIASP about updates on different burning aspects. This Branch of AIAIASP has no access to the information sought for. However, GS is contacted frequently over phone and his version is posted in the blog for information of all concerned. The updates as ascertained from the GS on 23.06.2010 is reproduced below.

  1. Allotment orders for surplus qualified candidates of IP Exam 2008 are expected to be released  very shortly. (Let us hope against hopes)

  2. The result of IP Exam 2009 is expected to be out in July 2010

  3. The proposal for upgradation of GP of IP is selved by Directorate for the time being awaiting outcome of the CAT case filed in the Ernakulam Bench. The reported excuse is - 'the matter is subjudice'. This is what was apprehended by Orissa Branch of AIAIASP  and mentioned earlier in a posting in this blog (refer the link The GS and the CHQ President are scheduled to meet Secretary (Posts) in the matter shortly. Orissa Branch of AIAIASP has advised the GS to tell Secretary (Posts) that the CAT case filed in individual capacity does not restrain the Govt from giving benefits to the whole cadre of IPs/ASPs and the Directorate should take appropriate care of the issue in the larger interest of 4000 odd IPs/ASPs as fast as possible otherwise Directorate will be resonsible for the repercussions that may cause for growing resentment among IPs and ASPs throughout the country for ignoring their legitimate demand on some pretext or other. Delay in going ahead with the proposal will only lend support to the growing feeling that the Department is not genuinely interested for getting the upgradation proposal materialised.

  4. The issue of joining strike with JCA was left to the CHQ of AIAIASP for taking a suitable decision in consultaion with all stake-holders including the Circle Secretaries of AIAIASP. It is learnt from CHQ sources that there was no adequate scope to ascertain definite views of all concerned on the issue. As mentioned by CHQ President the matter will find a place in the discussion in the coming CWC meeting to be convened shortly to decide the appropriate course of action to be followed in future.

No time line for issue of allotment orders of surplus IP candidates

As per the information gathered on 08.06.2010 from CHQ AIAIASP New Delhi allotment orders for surplus qualified candidates of IP Exam 2008 were expected within few days. But it is now reliably learnt that the matter suffers from indecision and nobody is sure as to when the allotment orders are to be released. There are a number of vacancies in IP cadre in the different Circles and the surplus candidates are supposed to be accommodated in vacancies which remained unfilled in other (than their home) Circles. It now appears that the Department is not bothered about the delay in filling up the vacancies meant for surplus candidates in different Circles.  Same is the case for IP Exam 2009 as no one bothers about the schedule of declaring its result. More sufferings are in waiting not just for existing IP line officials but for IP aspirants also. This is because the IP line officials can be taken for granted unlike officials of other cadres.

The result of IP Exam 2008 was declared on 18.09.2009. Even after lapse about 9 months the Department is unable to issue allotment orders for 100 odd surplus IP candidates and keeps them in waiting for indefinite period. Let us see how long the Department takes to dispose of the issue.

Orders for release of balance 60% arrears to GDS issued

Department of Posts issued orders on 10.06.2010 for release of balance 60% arrear dues to Grameen Dak Sevaks on implementation of RS Natarajamurthi Committee.  

As per orders, the process of payment of arrears has to be completed by 15.07.2010. It is not known if such orders are issued now on the background of notice served by JCA comprising, amomg others, the Grameen Dak Sevaks for indefinite strike to start from 13.07.2010.

Wait for MACP for IPs & ASPs in Orissa Circle NOT yet over

It is learnt that ACRs of some IPs/ASPs are still wanting and the matter cannot be finalised in absence of wanting ACRs. Wanting ACRs have been called for and it is not known how long it will take further to get the oders of MACP released.
