Attachment: Government Order
Filling up of residual vacancies
           Copy of D.G. (P) Cir. Lr. No. 60-5/2007-SPB-I dated 15-05-2007
All Pr. Chief Postmasters General / Chief Postmasters General of Circles
I am directed to invite your attention on the Recruitment Rules of Postmen.  The Recruitment Rules prescribe that 50% of vacancies will be filled by promotion from Group 'D' failing which by Gramin Dak Sevaks on the basis of merit.  Of the remaining 50% of vacancies, 25% will be filled by Gramin Dak Sevaks with minimum 15 years of service on the basis of seniority and 25% from the Gramin Dak Sevaks on the basis of merit in the examination.  In case the vacancies still remain unfilled, then it will be filled up by Gramin Dak Sevaks of the neighbouring Divisions or by Gramin Dak Sevaks in the Region.  Only thereafter, the residual vacancies will be filled up by direct recruitment through the nominees of the Employment Exchange.  It is possible that adequate number of Gramin Dak Sevaks may not have become successful for appointment as Postman and perhaps certain residual vacancies exist in Circles.
2. Similarly, the Recruitment Rules of Postal Assistant / Sorting Assistant provide that 50% of the vacancies are to be filled by direct recruitment and the remaining 50% vacancies are required to be filled up by departmental examination held for LGOs failing which the unfilled vacancies are offered to the Gramin Dak Sevaks subject to their fulfilling the prescribed age and education qualification.  It is possible that adequate numbers of LGOs may not pass the examination and also that eligible Gramin Dak Sevaks may not become available.  It may please be noted that as laid down in the existing Recruitment Rules if the vacancies remain unfilled by Gramin Dak Sevaks, such residual vacancies of Postal Assistants / Sorting Assistants are required to be filled up by subsequent direct recruitment of open market candidates.
3. It may please be noted that the optimisation of direct recruitment to civil posts, ordered vide Department of Personnel & Training's O.M. dated 16th May 2001 is applicable to only direct recruitment vacancies.  The unfilled 'Promotion quota' vacancies i.e. the residual vacancies will not come under the purview of the Screening Committee or the Annual Direct Recruitment Plans even if these are eventually required to be filled up by direct recruitment.  Thus, such residual vacancies arising in the cadres of Postmen / Postal Assistants / Sorting Assistants after making all attempts to fill up by various modes of recruitment provided in the Recruitment Rules if are still lying unfilled should be filled up through Employment exchange as in the case of Postmen or by direct recruitment of other open market candidates as in the case of Postal Assistants / Sorting Assistants in accordance with the Recruitment Rules.
4. It is requested that the Circles may accordingly take action to identify the residual vacancies and fill up such posts as per the provisions contained in the Recruitment Rules.  However, filling up such unfilled 'promotion quota' vacancies by direct recruitment should be done in accordance with general instructions regarding filling up of vacant posts as issued from time to time. If the posts are to be revived, such cases should be referred to the Establishment Division of the Directorate.
Yours faithfully,
(V.C. Kajla)
Director (SPN)

Comrade Sridharan and Com. Somnathda, It is great to note that the Directorate had finally issued related orders for filling up the residual Departmental quota vacancies since 2000-2001. As far as the deprivation of PA cadre officials transferred under Rule-38 i/c/w their deserving (notional/regular)promotion to LSG/HSG-II post(s) is concerned, we must try our level best once again. The achievements are really fabulous. Kudos
