In four monthly meeting today at CO various points were discussed in very cordial and passionate atmosphere. Details will be given when I would be free here.
The Accountant's exam for this year has been pronounced but result of last year's exam has not been declared so far. It appeared to us that it was not in presence of mind of admn side!
It has been assured that pending result of Accountant's exam will be declared in next week without fail.
It was represented by us that most of posts with allowance are identified in LSG viz. SB Counter, Treasurer etc. It was also represented by us that most of posts of Accounts has been upgraded to LSG, now candidates who pass accountant's exam can't be posted as Accountant on these posts because these posts will be LSG! So, posts of Accountants should be left for new qualifiers.
Approach of our CPMG was absolutely positive and helping. He asked us to give any such suggestions in next 15 days time. He assured to accept all legitimate suggestions.
Honorarium to invigilators etc all staff engaged in outsider Postmen's exam held in 2016 was not sanctioned. Same for this year's exam has been sanctioned. Our CPMG was unaware about non-sanction of honorarium for previous exams. He agreed to sanction shortly and gave instructions to concerned.
Regarding all PO buildings which are in dangerous condition, he asked me to give a division wise list with short details. All DS should provide fresh information to me in personal what's app and email.

We Furthermore represented that in most of POs, Gen Sets worth lacs of ruppes are laying untouched since installation and at most of POs Gen Sets are in worst condition. Administration should first make a survey to know how many are in working condition, reparable, irreparable. CPMG was very considerate and open minded on this issue also. He said we will make survey. He suggested other officers to see feasibility of AMC for Gen Sets.
He asked us to give a list of POs where there is frequency of power supply failure is more. There Gen Sets in working condition can be shifted.
