Subject: Filling up of the posts of Lower Selection Grade in Accounts line (LSG (A/cs)) in Post Offices and Railway Mail Service Offices.


I am directed to say that the existing Recruitment Rules of 1976 for the posts of Lower Selection Grade (LSG) in Accounts line in respect of posts Offices and Railway Mail Service (POs and RMS) offices stipulates that these posts will be filled by the clerks (Postal Assistants (PA)/Sorting Assistants (SAs) with 10 years regular service in the grade who have passed the Pos and RMS Accountants Examination.

2. LSG (A/c) was declared as Divisional cadre vide Dte. Lr. No. 9-3/94-SPB.II, dated 08.06.94. Subsequently, Directorate vide lr. No. 9-3/94-SPB.II, dated 13.02.95 clarified vide SL. No. (V) that the term ‘Divisionalisation’ as mentioned in the orders dated 08.06.94 relates only to transfer liability and no other aspect of LSG Accountants cadre has been changed. It has further been clarified that there is no change so far as promotion to LSG Accountants at Circles level is concerned and there is no change with regard to disciplinary/appointing/administrative authority. Therefore, LSG (A/cs) cadre is divisionalised for limited purpose i.e. only for transfer liability and this cadre remains as a Circle cadre.

3. Directorate has been receiving reference from Circles seeking clarification as to whether the posts of LSG (A/cs) PO & RMS Offices is to be filled by the PAs or SAs as the case may, as per the year of passing the PO & RMS Accountant examination by these officials. The matter has been examined in the light of Recruitment Rules for LSG (A/cs) and various instructions issued by the Directorate from time to time. It has been decided with the approval of Competent Authority that for filling up of the posts of LSG (A/cs) in PO & RMS offices, the eligibility of the officials for consideration has to be decided as on the crucial date on the basis of their seniority in the feeder grade subject to the fulfillment of educational qualifications etc., prescribed, if any, in the Recruitment Rules, irrespective of the date/year when the prescribed qualification was acquired in the past. Therefore, while considering promotions to LSG (A/cs), the eligibility list of such PAs/SAs who have passed the Accountant’s examination by the crucial date prescribed for assessing the eligibility may be prepared based on their seniority in the PA/SA grade.

Yours faithfully,


(D. K. Chanda)
