Dated 25.9.20L4
To
         All Chief Post Masters General 

Subject:- Appointment of Postal Assistants/Sorting Assistants by direct recruitment. 

Sir/Madam,

I am directed to refer to this Directorate's letter of even No.60-9/2009-SPB-| dated 08.05.2012 on the above mentioned subject and to say that earlier, after the completion of pre-appointment formalities the candidates selected for appointment of PA/SA were required to undergo training in PTCs before they could be appointed. It often caused delay in making the offer of appointments because of non-availability of seats with the PTCs with the result that the selected candidates found opportunities elsewhere and ultimately a good percentage of them did not become available for appointment and thet vacancies remained unfilled. Therefore, in the above cited letter dated 08.05.20L2 there is no such condition that the candidates selected for appointment of PA/SA are required to undergo training in PTCs before they could be appointed. 

2.         In view of the above, the Circles should take immediate action to ensure that the pre-appointment formalities of the selected candidates are completed at the earliest. For that matter, the Circles should liaison with the concerned authorities in the States so that the pre-appointment formalities are completed at the earliest. lf need be, CPMsG may use their good offices to expedite the completion of formalities. 

3.         On completion of the pre-appointment formalities, the candidates may straightaway be issued offer of appointment by the Circles. This would motivate them to join as PA/SA immediately. Thereafter, when they join, they may be deputed for training as soon as the slots become available in the PTCs. Pending their training in PTCs, the Circles shall issue their posting orders and commence their in-house training chalking out course, as far as possible, based on the PTC syllabus depending on the resources available with them. The in house training that may be imparted to the candidates by the Circles shall in no way be treated as substitute for the formal training to be imparted by PTCs. Till they are trained by PTCs, they may not be detailed on sensitive seats nor deputed to man the counters and may be posted in back office etc. under effective supervision.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Friends and Comrades,
Meeting of the Postal Joint Council of Action was held on 11.11.2014 at New Delhi. Shri D. Theagarajan, Secretary General, FNPO presided. Com. R. N. Parashar, Secretary General, NFPE presented agenda items for discussion. General Secretaries of affiliated Unions/Associations of NFPE & FNPO attended. Com. M. Krishnan, Ex-Secretary General of NFPE was also present in the meeting. PJCA reviewed the progress in settlement of 39 points charter of demands submitted to Secretary, Department of Posts on 28.08.2014. PJCA came to the unanimous conclusion that not even a single issue is settled by the Government and Department. Employees are suffering but authorities are turning a deaf year towards their genuine demands. Rome is burning but Neros are fiddling.
None of our demand is unjustified. Five lakhs Postal and RMS employees including Gramin Dak Sewaks and Casual, Part-time, contingent employees cannot remain as mute spectators. There is a limit for our patience. Government and Postal Board are treating our patience as our weakness.
Taking into consideration all the above aspects, the PJCA unanimously took the following decision.
1.      Entire five lakhs employees of the Department of Posts will go on indefinite strike from the third week of February 2015, if the demands are not settled before 31.12.2014.
2.      The date of the indefinite strike will be declared in the 4th December 2014 Parliament March.
3.      Every effort should be made by all All India/Circle/Divisional Unions to ensure maximum participation of employees in the Parliament March. Minimum 20000 employees should participate in the March. All should bring flags and banners.
4.      Laaders of INTUC, CITU, AITUC & JCM National Council staff side will be invited to address the Parliament March.
5.      Next PJCA meeting will be held on 03.12.2014 at 5 PM to decide the date of indefinite strike.
Let us march ahead with Determination and courage. This is time to show your sincerity towards the cause of five lakhs employees of the Department of Posts. Let us make the parliament March a Historic success. Let us unite together and make the indefinite strike a Thundering success. Let the Government and Postal Board understand that we are not Dumb-Driven cattle. We are workers and not beggars.
AWAKE! ARISE!! UNITE!!
Come in the Thousands to the Parliament March
Let us declare the indefinite strike in the presence of 20000 Postal Employees on 4th December 2014
Yours sincerely,
