UPGRADATION OF PAY SCALE TO INSPECTOR POSTS

Ministry of Finance Vide Memo No F. No 1/1/2008-IC dated 13.11.2009 has revised the GP of Rs 4200/- granted to the existing pre-revised scale of Rs 6500-10500 to Rs 4600/- w.e.f 1.1.2006. The pay is to be refixed and the arrears will be paid immediately. Personal Secretaries of our Department who were in the pre-revised scale of Rs 6500 will be benefited immediately. Our demand for upgradation of pay scales to Inspector Posts at par with the Inspectors of CBDT/CBEC was considered by the Pay Commission and the recommendation given in the report is reproduced below:-

Extract of Para 7.6.14 of Pay Commission recommendations for Inspector Posts.

7.6.14 Postal Inspectors in Department of Posts have demanded a higher pay scale of Rs.6500-10500 on par with Inspectors and analogous posts in CBDT/CBEC as well as Assistants of Central Secretariat Service (CSS) on the ground that they are recruited through the same examination. The Commission is recommending the merger of pre-revised pay scales of Rs.5500-9000 and Rs.6500-10500 which will automatically bring Inspector (Posts) on par with Assistants in CSS/Inspectors and analogous posts in CBDT and CBEC. With this upgradation, Inspector (Posts) shall come to lie in an identical pay scale as that of their promotion post of Assistant Superintendent (Posts) [ASPOs]. ASPOs shall, accordingly, be placed in the next higher pay scale of Rs.7450-11500 corresponding to the revised pay band PB-2 of Rs.8700-34800 along with grade pay of Rs.4600. The next higher post in the hierarchy, that of Superintendent (Post), which is also a promotion post for ASPOs, shall be placed in the pay scale of Rs.7500-12000 corresponding to the revised pay band PB-2 of Rs.8700-34800 along with grade pay of Rs.4800. Parity exists between the posts of Inspector (Posts) and Inspectors in Mail Motor Service (MMS). This parity would need to be maintained and Assistant Manager, Mail Motor Service shall be placed in the higher grade of Rs.7450-11500 whose corresponding replacement pay band and grade pay is PB-2 of Rs.8700-34800 along with a grade pay of Rs.4600. Similarly, Manager, Mail Motor Service shall be placed in PB-2 pay band of Rs.8700-34800 along with a grade pay of Rs.4800 which corresponds to the prerevised pay scale of Rs.7500-12000.

As the Inspectors are already placed at par with pay scale of Rs 6500-10500, the benefit should also be given to Inspector Posts. The case is being taken up with our Department for upgradation of Grade Pay to Inspector Posts from Rs 4200/- to Rs 4600/-

Simultaneously the grade pay of ASP and Gr B should upgraded to 4800 and 5400 respectively. Our Assoication is on the job. Specific orders will be got issued by the Directorate very soon.
