Eminent economist and also ex-Finance Minister of our state Dr. Asim Dasgupta inaugurated the open session.

Sri J.Panda,
Chief Postmaster General,
West Bengal Circle,
Yogayog Bhavan,

Sub: Filling up of unfilled (departmental quota) vacancies in PA cadre for the year 2010 & 2011.
Dear Sir,
            This is in continuation of our recent discussions with you on recruitment in PA cadre. However, once again this union would like to draw your kind attention to your office letter no Rectt/X-13/Exam/GDS/2010-12 dated 09/08/2012, wherein it was cleared that the examination for the year 2010 & 2011 will be held as per guidelines of the department on the same day and time on the basis of same syllabus with the outside candidates. And accordingly the examination was held both for the candidates of open market and eligible GDS on the same date. Now after recent publication of the results of the direct recruitment for PA & SA cadre for the year 2011 & 2012 it is learnt that the declared vacancies of unfilled (departmental quota) vacancies for the year 2010 and 2011 have not been considered.
            Actually, in accordance with the notification issued by D.G (Posts) letter no 37-47/2010-SPB.I)PT) dated 23/04/2012, the unfilled vacancies of Departmental quota that still remains unfilled from the GDS staff should be filled up from open market candidates according to merit. On the basis of this ruling position, the result from open market candidates (if the GDS do not qualify) would have been declared at a time against unfilled vacancies of departmental quota for the year 2010 & 2011.
            In these circumstances, this union urges upon you to pursue this serious issue with Postal Directorate to explore further avenues for more recruitment in our department.            A line in reply taking necessary action will be highly appreciated.
Thanking you.                                                      Yours faithfully
                                                                        (Janardan Majumdar)
                                                                              Circle Secretary.

Very Urgent letter ( for new entrants in PA Cadre ) to Chief PMG, West Bengal Circle

37, Ganesh Chandra Avenue, Kolkata – 700 013

PC-35/Recruitment                                                                                   dated 19-11-2013


Sri J. Panda,
Chief Post Master General,
West Bengal Circle,
Yogayog Bhawan,

Sub:  Expedition of pre-appointment formalities for Postal Assistants /Sorting Assistants / PA SBCO for
         Direct Recruitment for the years 2011 & 2012.   

Dear Sir,

             Kindly recall the discussions this union had with you yesterday on the above subject at your chamber.

             Once again this is to mention that it is a good news to our postal family that result of direct recruitment for the year 2011 & 2012 has recently been published and a large number of PAs / SAs / PASBCO are going to enter in our department.  What in our last discussions both you and we opined is that on the background of present era of technological development these young, energetic and talented girls and boys will be much helpful and effective to our department. And hence we earnestly requested you to have a constant supervision from higher level administration so that the pre-appointment formalities for these new entrants get completed at the earliest exploring easy avenues for their appointment. Unfortunately, we are receiving some information that in some divisions like North Presidency, Dinajpur, Tamluk etc the local administration are not shouldering almost any responsibility to expedite the entire process and as a consequence there is already a space that  both the new entrants and also the respective division will have to suffer bitterly. However, in our discussions we also requested you to provide in house training for them so that before requisite induction training they can join easily.  

             In these circumstances this union urges upon you to intervene in to this matter personally and issue necessary instruction in general so that these newly recruited candidates may get appointment as soon as possible.

             Thanking you,


                                                                                                       Yours faithfully,

                                                                                                        ( J.Majumdar)
                                                                                                       Circle Secretary   
Copy to : All Division / Branch Secretaries for intimation – they are also requested to pursue this case with the local authority constantly.                
                                                                                                        ( J.Majumdar)
                                                                                                       Circle Secretary
