System Administrators case – Separate cadre
The case was again discussed in the standing committee meeting of the Departmental Council held on 02.02.2012. It was informed that further action on this case will be taken after finalization of the proposal of the cadre Review committee. However the Member (Personnel) reiterated that creation of a separate cadre may not be feasible. She explained that there will be a limited chance for ‘System Administrators’ further promotion in a separate cadre and further DOP&T may insist on direct recruitment only. The chance for absorption of the existing system administrators will also be remote as separate qualification etc will be fixed for the post. In short the Postal Board is not in favour of creation of separate cadre. Our demand for separate cadre is also not rejected. A final decision will be taken only after the finalisation of the proposals by the Cadre review committee in which we are demanding the formation of System Assistant Posts with further promotional avenues.
