"Allowance report to be submitted today"

Proving all earlier reports wrong, the committee for higher allowances for central Govt. employees yet to submit it's report.

Now NJCA Chairman Mr Shiv Gopal Mishra predicts the report to be submitted today. As today has been the last date of the extended tenure of the committee, he may have predicted this before media!

Here is the recent media report from India.com published on 21.02.2017

Directorate Letter No. 20-45/2016-SPB-II dated 18th Feb 2017 regarding clarification on Benchmark for Promotion.

IPPB to Send and Receive Money on the Basis of Aadhaar Number

Your 12-digit Aadhaar number could soon become your single-point payment address.

With the help of India Post Payment Bank (IPPB), over 112 crore Indians will be able to send and receive money only on the basis of the Aadhaar number; it won't matter whether it is linked to a bank account or not.

India Post Payment Bank CEO AP Singh told that currently, Aadhaar is not a payment address in itself, but the payments bank, which plans to start operations from September 2017, will change that. The bank, which hopes to cover at least 650 districts of the country in the initial stage, aims to “simplify and universalise” payments systems.

bank strikeAround 10 lakh bank employees will go on a day long bank strike on February 28. The strike call is to demand criminal action against wilful defaulters and reimbursement of cost of demonetisation to the banks.

“The government should reimburse the cost of demonetisation to banks. This cost and the business loss during the period of nearly two months will have a cascading effect on the balance sheets of the banks, and the brunt will be borne by the bank employees and officers alone,” All India Bank Employees’ Association General Secretary C H Venkatachalam said on Sunday.
Venkatachalam demanded criminal action against wilful defaulters of bank loans as, according to him, only that can reduce such irregularities in the banking industry.

Respected sir,

    Vide above reference 1, Department of Posts has created a separate cadre for Postmasters, to compete in the changed scenario `in wake of introduction of Technology, Challenges from the market and to increase productivity, it was absolutely essential to ensure that key Post offices are headed by the Professional managers. Thus a separate cadre of  “Postmasters”  has been created  at the level of LSG/HSGII/HSG I and PS Group `B` by carving out from the existing general line post in postal wing and PS Group B and designated as

1.      Postmaster Grade I,
2.      Postmaster Grade II,
3.      Postmaster Grade III
4.      Senior Postmaster.

        Vide Reference 1 of Postal directorate para 5(ii), initial constitution of the various grades of the Postmasters shall be done by inviting options/applications from the existing incumbents of LSG,HSG II, HSG I in postoffices and PS Gr. ‘B’. Vide above direction of the recruitment rules Postmaster Grade I/II/III posts are filled from eligible LSG/HSG II/HSG I officials and no PS Gr.B official is opted for the Sr. Postmaster post under such initial constitution clause. Even after the 6 years from creation of such Sr. Postmaster posts those are remaining unfilled till now.

AIAPS writes final reminder request for the negative interpretation of Postmaster cadre recruitment rules.
