Sub:-   Arbitrary and excess deputation of P As of Bhubaneswar Division to Circle Office 

Ref.-    Circle Union letter No. UN/AIPEU, Gr-C / Odisha /05 – 2014,  Dated 21.05.2014 addressed to the Chief PMG / DPS (HQ), Odisha Circle 

Dear Comrade,

This has a reference to this Divisional Union’s letter No. UN-BN/AIPEU-Gr.-C/ 01 – 04/2014, dated 4th April, 2014 on the above subject basing on which the Circle Union, expressing its concern has already protested against the mass scale deputation orders of P As from Bhubaneswar division to work in Circle Office vide its letter under reference with request both to the Chief PMG and DPS(HQ), Odisha Circle for their kind intervention and cancellation of such orders issued already.

But as witnessed, the above letter of the Circle Union has no impact on the Circle administration which is compelling Bhubaneswar Division continuously for deputation of additional hands to Circle Office. 

In this context, this is to inform you that out of 241 sanctioned strength of P As in Bhubaneswar Division, the working strength available as on date is 219 only and out of those 219,  the following 12 officials are on deputation at present to C O/other establishments. 

Name of the P A
Section where working
Bibhuti Bhusan Mohapatra, S A
Manoj Kumar Mahala, S A
Pravakar Satpathy, P A
Project Arrow Cell
Archana Mishra, P A
Rabi Narayan Sahoo-II, P A
B D Cell
Lal Mohan Mohapatra, P A
Puspanjali Satpathy, P A
Kshyamanidhi Routray
Somanath Sabar
Banita Tripathy
Lingaraj Sahoo
Gadadhar Rath, P A
Deputed to DoT

In addition, 2 P As are on deputation to APS, 2 P As are under suspension and 8 P As are working against LSG supervisor vacant posts in Bhubaneswar GPO due to non-availability of approved LSG officials. Thus, actually 195 P As [219 – ( 12+2+2+8)] are available against the sanctioned strength of 241 with shortage of 46 P As. 

This is not the end of the problem. Long absence of women employees availing Child Care Leave on office arrangements also adds to the problem. In addition, frequent temporary vacancies are there due to availing of C L / E L / LTC etc by the officials. As a result, the staff members of Bhubaneswar Division are facing a lot of problems and are frequently debarred of due leaves at the time of need. Even the Division Office has failed on several occasions to make a suitable relieving arrangement against C L to allow its officials to attend important social responsibilities including self-medical treatment. 

It is needless to reiterate that the operative offices including the divisional office are already over loaded with works after introduction of various new products and services and implementation of several schemes along with decentralization of PLI/ RPLI works. So, further reduction of staff  strength from divisional level in the name of deputation is not at all justified and appreciable. 

Thus, this union while strongly protests such arbitrary deputation of P As of Bhubaneswar Division to Circle Office requests you to discuss the matter immediately once again with the Chief PMG / DPS (HQ), Odisha Circle in person for immediate return of all staff of Bhubaneswar Division now under deputation to Circle Office for smooth management of the Division. 

Further, it is also requested to appraise the Circle administration for bringing P As on deputation to C O, if at all required from other Divisions where interested officials are frequently opting for the purpose and stop issuing such orders to Bhubaneswar Division hence forth. 

This may be given priority. 

A line of reply on the action taken is sincerely requested. 

With greetings.
Yours comradely, 


Copy through eMail to : 

1.     The Senior Superintendent of Post Offices, Bhubaneswar Division, Bhubaneswar – 751 009 with request not to relieve officials of Bhubaneswar Division on deputation to Circle Office/other establishments. Since the Division is already running short of 46 P As and the staff members are suffering like anything even to avail a single day C L to discharge their social responsibilities, Circle Office may kindly be appraised of the situation with denial of further deputation to C O from Bhubaneswar Division. In addition, C O may kindly be requested also to return the P As already on deputation.
2.     The Director Postal Services ( HQ), O / o the Chief PMG, Odisha Circle, Bhubaneswar with humble request for cancellation of C O order issued to SSPOs, Bhubaneswar Division for deputation of officials to CO.
