Modalities for Unification of MTS Cadre in DoP

There will be a single cadre of Multi Tasking Staff for Subordinate Offices (Postal Division, RMS Division including MMS, etc.), Administrative Offices including RLO, and Director of Accounts (Postal), i.e. DAP, also known as Postal Accounts Offices (PAOs), Civil/Electrical Wing (where posts of MTS exist).

Unification of PA Cadre in Postal Department 

GDS and Casual Labours of a recruiting Division/Unit will be eligible for appointment as MTS on a seniority basis as per Recruitment Rules.

GDS appearing in a competitive examination for appointment as MTS will have the option to choose Administrative Offices, DAP (PAOs), Subordinate Office, Civil / Electrical wing, etc. GDS applying for the posts of MTS shall submit his/her order of preference for Administrative Offices, DAP (PAOs), Subordinate Office, Civil/Electrical wing, etc. 

It is clarified that this option/order of preference shall be exercised at the time of submitting the application for examination.

After selection, appointment to the post of MTS will be in one of these offices [Administrative Offices, DAP (PAOs), Subordinate Office, Civil/Electrical wing, etc.].

Once a GDS / Casual laborer is appointed as MTS, he/she will be eligible to appear in Limited Departmental Competitive Examination (LDCE) for promotion to the posts of Postman, Mail Guard, or Lower Division Clerk in DAP, etc., as per the provision of relevant Recruitment Rules only.

However, in case of promotion by seniority, an MTS will be eligible only in the recruiting Unit if such a provision exists in the relevant recruitment rules.

Once an MTS opts for promotion in one of the promotion channels, subsequent promotion will be in the respective channel. For example, if an MTS after promotion joins as a Postman, he/she will be eligible for promotion to the post of Postal Assistant / Sorting Assistant only and not in the cadres of DAP. Whereas if an MTS after promotion joins as Lower Division Clerk of DAP, his / her subsequent promotion will be in the posts of DAP only, where LDC is a feeder cadre.

MTS of Subordinate Offices shall not be transferred, including transfer under Rule-37 of P&T Manual Vol.-IV, to Administrative Offices / DAP(PAOs), etc., and vice-versa. However, an MTS official may seek transfer from one Office [Subordinate Office / Administrative Office / DAP (PAO), etc.] to another Office [Subordinate Office / Administrative Office / DAP (PAO), etc.], under Rule-38 of P&T Manual Vol.-IV.

MTS of the unified MTS cadre of the Department shall be recruited through one set of Recruitment Rules of MTS.
