POSTING OF SUB POSTMASTERS IN SINGLE HANDED AND DOUBLE HANDED SUB POST OFFICE –REG.
D.G. Posts No. 37-56/2008-SPB.II dated 15 July, 2011. (Addressed to CPMG UP Circle and copy to all recognized Service Unions/Federations)
I am directed to refer to yours suggestion that instructions similar to those already issued by the Circler may be issued at the level of the Directorate to the effect that the officials who are about to retire should not be given full fledged independent charge at least six months before their retirement in any single or double handed post office in order to frauds.
2. The proposal of the Circle has been examined by the Competent Authority. Reports were called for from the Postal Circles and examined. It has been observed from the reports of the Circles that number of frauds committed by officials who are due to retire in six months is very minimal.
3 In view of the above , it has been decided not to put the condition that the officials due to retire should not be given full fledged independent charge of Sub Postmaster (SPM) of single handed and double handed Post Offices at least six months before their retirement . However, the Divisional Superintendent should satisfy himself that the official has a clear service record with no past involvement of any kind in fraud cases etc. and that he is a person of probity and has the required competence to provide quality service. The integrity of the system should not be compromised under any condition.
