Subject: Cadre management of Inspector Posts and Assistant Superintendent of Posts - reg.

Madam/Sir,

I am directed to refer to the subject mentioned above and to say that the cadre of Inspector Posts (IP) and Assistant Superintendent of Posts (ASP) are being managed at the Circle level on the basis of various instructions contained in Postal Manual Volume IV, as amended from time to time.

Prior to the introduction of an element of direct recruitment in the cadre of Inspector Posts, a merit list was prepared by Circle wise. However, under the direct recruitment quota Inspector posts arc drawn from a centralized common merit list prepared by SSC whereas promotion quota candidates continued to be drawn on the basis of a Circle-wise merit list.

further, the promotion of inspector posts to the cadre of ASP is confined to the Circle which is corresponding to the availability of vacancies in the concerned Circle. This leads to a difference in the time taken for actual promotion in different Circles. This situation creates an anomaly in the career progression of inspector Posts across Postal Circles affecting their morale.


This issue has been examined holistically and it has been decided that the cadre of Inspector Posts and Assistant Superintendent of Posts shall henceforth be managed at the Directorate level. In other words, the reservation roster for both the cadres, promotion to ASP  cadre and other allied activities shall be undertaken at the Directorate level.

All Circles are required to furnish details of Inspector Posts and Assistant Superintendent of posts appointed in the Circle in the enclosed format by 25.07.2022. This shall include the officials who are on deputation units within the Department of posts as well as other organizations viz. APS, IPPB, Directorate, CEPT, PTC, etc.

Therefore, DPC for promotion to the cadre of Assistant Superintendent of posts shall not be convened by the circle w.e.f. date of issue of this letter, i.e. 12.07.2022.

Yours faithfully,
(Satya Narayana Dash)
Director (SPN)
