Consequent on granting permission by the DOP&T to fill up HSG-I vacancies as per existing recruitment rules, HSG-II officials with three year service are considered for HSG-I promotion. But the Postmaster Grade II officials with minimum five years service are only considered for PM Grade-III promotion as per the Postmaster Grade Recruitment Rules approved by DOP&T. This DISCRIMINATION was brought to the notice of the Directorate by AIPEU Group ‘C’ (CHQ) earlier. On 02.08.2013, detailed discussion was held with Member (P), Postal Services Board. It is informed that Directorate has already called for the detailed particulars, from Circles. On receipt of information the case will be submitted to DOP&T for RELAXATION of five years to three year at par with HSG II officials.
