Sub: Proposal for the implementation of Cadre Restructuring
I take this opportunity to suggest the following towards the implementation of the proposed Cadre restructuring in Group C, in our circle.
2. The main aim of our union should be to protect the interest of our staff, especially dislocation of staff. The majority of the staff will have no monetary benefits, as they may be in receipt of the respective grade pay. If at all any dislocation is absolutely necessary, it should be within the division only.
3. After the identification of the posts in all cadres as per the decided norms, the posts should be distributed to the divisions, so that the posts are to be filled up by the concerned SP/SSP. Then only the dislocation will be minimum.
4. Against the available posts allotted to the division, the posts are to be filled by the officials as per their seniority in the divisional gradation list, starting from the senior most official. This will ensure the further promotion of the senior officials, when an opportunity comes. The rest of the officials of the same grade pay, who cannot be accommodated in posts, should be allowed to be continue in their present posts.
5. If the number of posts are more than the officials of the required grade pay, the senior officials of the next lower grade pay will be upgraded to the required grade pay, and they will be posted against the remaining posts. If the posts are allocated to the division, those officials would be posted within the division.
6. For example, if the number of LSG posts allotted to our division is 50 and the number of officials available in Grade pay 2800 is 45, the officials in GP 2800 will be posted against the 45 posts. The senior most 5 P.A.s in GP 2400 will be elevated to GP 2800 and will be posted against the resultant 5 vacancies, within the division. In this case the 5 officials may opt for this, since their posting is within the division. If the allocation of posts to the division is not done, those officials will have to go to other divisions, in which case there are chances for the officials to decline this. This may lead to the denial of further promotions under MACPS.
7. On the other hand, if the LSG posts allotted is 45 and the number of officials in GP 2800 is 50, then the senior most 45 officials would be posted in the 45 posts, and the remaining officials should be allowed to continue in their present posts.
8. I suggest the following towards the identification of posts and posting of officials.
9. The total number of HSG (NFG) is 26 which are to be created. There are 24 officials in regular HSG I cadre who have completed 2 years of service and due to be elevated to HSG (NFG). All the posts at which those 24 officials are presently working may be identified as HSG (NFG) and the officials may be allowed to be continue in their present post. This has been done in Orissa circle.
10. For HSG I, the total number of posts after cadre restructuring is 238. The number of posts already available in HSG I is 141. As suggested, out of 103 available in HSG II posts 97 posts can be upgraded to HSG, which makes the total of 238. The officials already working in regular HSG I cadre may be allowed to continue in their posts. The remaining posts should be distributed to divisions as already suggested. In divisions, the posts may be filled by the senior most officials in the GP of 4600, and in the event of shortage of officials in GP 4600, the senior most officials in GP 4200 may be elevated to the GP 4600 at divisional level. One post in each HO can be identified for HSG I, besides the existing one, which may give the required shortfall of 97 posts, as there are more than 100 H.O.s in the circle. The post of In-charge, BPC may also be considered for HSG I.
11. For HSG II, the total number of posts after cadre restructuring is 961. Out of the available 103 posts, 97 has been upgraded to HSG I as mentioned in para 10 above. There are 6 posts remaining and 955 posts are to be identified in the circle. As suggested, 344 SPM posts in triple hand offices and 587 LSG posts can be upgraded to HSG II. Only 24 posts have to be identified from the existing P.A.posts. Considering the sensitiveness in CBS, APMs (SB) of bigger H.O.s may be identified for HSG II. Also one official for CPCs having a huge number of active policies may be identified for HSG II. The Post of APM(Accounts) where there are two accountant posts may also be identified.
12. For LSG, the total number of posts after cadre restricting is 2967. As suggested, 1188 single hand offices and 640 double hand offices and totally there are 1828 offices. The difference of 1139 posts is to be identified. I suggest that the following posts may be identified for LSG. The number of posts is not known.
1. All the posts of Treasurer and Asst Treasurer
2. All DSMs
3. All PRI(P)s,
4. All MEs
5. All Accountants
6. One official to each HO for CPC, quality checker. For offices having a huge number of policies, more than one post may be identified.
7. One Additional Supervisor for each HO to work as APM (SB),considering the sensitiveness of CBS.
8. Some posts of OA in the office of SP/SSP to deal sensitive branches such as investigation etc.
13. It should be noted that all posts in HSG I/HSG II/LSG/single handed/double handed/triple handed are available in all divisions almost evenly distributed. The posts are to be identified in LSG. If the posts mentioned in para 12 supra are identified for LSG, those posts are also available in all divisions, which will be evenly distributed. In this case, the dislocation will be minimum.
14. The above proposal may be discussed in length at the meeting in Chennai and a final decision may be taken, keeping in mind that the posts are to be available in all divisions, and there is no dislocation beyond the division. Also it is to be noted that identification of posts within the division would be easy, since the gradation list for officials of all grade pay are maintained at divisional level only.
15. Thanking you, comrade
