Department’s Clarification on allotment of Rent free Quarters dt. 28.03.2011 is arbitrary and against to the scheme. CHQ demands reconsideration

Ref: P/5-2/JCM (DC) Dated – 05.05.2011


The Secretary

Department of Posts

Dak Bhawan New Delhi – 110001


Sub: - JCM (DC) Subject item No. 29 - Arbitrary and forcible allotment of Staff Quarters – regarding.

Ref: - Your. letter No. 18-9/2010-Bldg dt. 28.03.2011

A kind attention is invited to the discussions we had on the subject in the Departmental council meeting in which it was assured to review the case of Rajasthan Circle.

But to our dismay, the Directorate has issued instructions vide its letter No. 18-9/2010-Bldg dt. 28.03.2011 duly cancelling the Directorate earlier orders dt. 05.03.2010 which was issued based on the rulings on the subject and directed to implement another letter dt. No. 14.12.2001 which is the root cause for the problem in Rajasthan Circle in allotting the surplus staff quarters due to non availability of volunteers as rent free quarters to the SPMs of town sub offices.

The rent free quarters have been introduced to the SPM as service conditions in the same office premises vide Department No. M.S. 53/12/28-B. S. dated 26.07.1929 and subsequent letter No. N 309/41/ES A dated 11.10.1941.

Based on the facts, the Directorate has incorporated Rule 38 in volume IV that the postmasters provided with post attached quarters is required to sleep in the office premises and this rule is still in vogue. The same has been further clarified vide DG P&T letter no. 24-4/64-PAP dt. 08.01.1965.

As such, if the quarters are not allotted in the office premises and allotting more than the distance of 4 to 5 kms, how it can be construed as post attached quarters. The clarifications now issued have further aggravated problems in other circles and it is tantamount to the violation of the main orders on the subject.

It is therefore requested to kindly reconsider the issue and rescind the orders under reference and settle the issue as per the rules in existence.

A line in reply about the action taken is highly solicited.

Yours faithfully,

(K. V. Sridharan)

General Secretary

The matter is serious and directly effecting economic grievance to effected person by a huge amount. In such cases the quarters may be allotted to other Govt. employee as prescribed in rules but local administration is not taking such steps and arbitrarily allotting.
