To,

a) All Chief Postmaster General

b) Chief General Manager, PLI/Parcel/BD Directorate

Subject: Transfer Policy Guidelines dated 17.01.2019 – reg.

Sir/Madam,

I am directed to refer to the Directorate’s letter of even number dated 31.12.2022 and to say that clarifications are being sought from some Postal Circle.

Issues raised by the Postal Circles have been examined and is clarified as under:

Query (i)- Para 3(A)(X) of Transfer guidelines have been modified to bring down eligibility for transfer from two years to one year.

However, para 3(A) (i) of Transfer guidelines have not been modified which provides that ‘As a general rule, an official shall not be transferred from one unit to another, either within the same Circle or to another Circle unless he has completed probation period satisfactorily.

Clarification- Service eligibility as provided under -Para 3(A) (X) of Transfer guidelines, for transfer under rule 38 has been reduced to one year.

Hence, Para 3(A)(i) of the Transfer guidelines may be treated as modified in line with Para 3(A)(X).

Query (ii)- Whether the mode of recruitment and category be observed for Intra-Circle mutual transfer of PA/SA.

Clarification- Consequent upon the maintenance of reservation roster of PA/SA at Circle level, mode of recruitment/category to which an employee belongs need not be observed for Intra-Circle transfer of PA/SA either on a mutual basis or otherwise.

In the case of Inter-Circle transfer of PA/SA, these will be observed without fail.

Further, in the case of other Divisional cadres viz.- Postman/Mail Guard/MTS/etc.

mode of recruitment/category shall be observed for inter-circle as the intra-circle transfer.

Query (iii)- Circle is allowed to consider Intra-Circle temporary transfer after observing guidelines dated 17.01.2019.

Also Read:  How to transfer WhatsApp chats from Android phone to iPhone

Now, as per revised guidelines, Circle has to consider Intra-Circle and Inter-Circle on monthly basis.

This is creating confusion for preparing a priority list for temporary Intra-Circle transfer.

Hence, temporary Intra-Circle transfer of PA/SA may be discontinued.

Clarification- Temporary transfer and Rule-38 transfer are two different aspects wherein Rule-38 addresses request for permanent transfer to a Unit/Circle, whereas an official seeks temporary transfer to mitigate short-term requirements for being at someplace.

The priority list for Rule – 38 transfers has no relation to the requests of temporary transfer and such request for temporary transfer may be approved if a vacancy is available in the requested unit, at the time of consideration.

Query (iv)- Inward Inter-Circle/Intra-Circle waiting list of PA/SA were maintained Division-wise.

Hence, the procedure for the merger of a waiting list of PA/SA and operation of additional options was maintained Division-wise before coming into force of present guidelines.

Clarification- Officials already on the waiting list shall retain their weightage.

The merger of waiting/priority list shall be done as under, to prepare combined Inter-Circle/Intra-Circle priority list:

(a) Request received till 2018 shall be arranged with reference to the date of application in the relevant year.

(b) Request received from 2019 to 2022 shall be arranged with reference to the length of service, in

the relevant year.

Query (v)- As per calculation of vacancy, transfers under Rule-38 are to be considered against actual vacancy m preceding month.

This will lead to exhaustion of all vacancies in Inward transfer Circles and no vacancy would be left for Compassionate appointment (5% of DR) and Sports quota (5% of DR).

Clarification- At the start of the recruitment year, i.e.in the month of January, all recruiting units shall assess vacancy for a particular recruitment year and distribute it amongst various modes of recruitment provided in the Recruitment Rules and within each mode amongst various categories as prescribed.

This shall be termed as ‘Provisional Vacancy’.

Thereafter, Circle shall earmark vacancy for Compassionate appointment and Sports quota recruitment, which will not be open for considering transfer under Rule-38.

As Provisional vacancies will undergo change due to the addition of unforeseen vacancies not assessed earlier, Circle should ensure that the vacancy proportionate to unforeseen vacancies arising during the recruitment year, are added to the vacancies earmarked earlier for Compassionate appointment and Sports quota recruitment with reference to Provisional vacancy.

As and when ‘Final vacancy’ is arrived at, proportionate vacancy for Compassionate appointment and Sports quota should also be finalized.

Yours faithfully,

(Satya Narayana Pash)
