Sub: Holding of Bi-monthly meeting-regarding.


Ref : Admn.1/C-7(B)/Bimonthly Meeting/Vol.I/1045        dated 20/08/2020.


Respected Sir,

With reference to the above letter under reference, the agenda for the coming Bi-monthly meeting scheduled to be held on  26th  August  2020  are given as under.

                              Old Items :

 1.    Alteration of Room allotted to AIPAEA, Cuttack :

 A very small room is allotted to AIPAEA, Cuttack which is not sufficient to accommodate 15 chairs   

 for 15 Office Bearers. Kindly consider to provide a more specious room  for  Service Association.


2.  To consider the promotion of two officials from JA to SA and three officials from LDCs to JA  wef  01.01.2020.   

  Action taken reply furnished against this item is different to what has been raised. It was requested to consider promotion of the official from the due date as no disciplinary/vigilance case  was pending against them as on 01.01.2020. The DOPT  Memo No F. No. 22034/4/2012-Estt.(D) dated 2nd November 2012 may kindly be perused wherein it has been stated that “The promotion of the official should not be withheld on  mere ground that the disciplinary action is contemplated, except the circumstances when the officer is under suspension or a charge sheet  has been issued to the official or prosecution for a criminal charge is pending against the official”.                                                                                      

         As on 01.01.2020, neither charge sheet was issued nor any punishment was current against the official who were due to get promotion on that date. Mere inclusion of  their names in CLI report should not be a ground for withholding the promotion. Therefore, it is humbly  requested to consider the promotion cases  of the deserving  officials w.e.f  01.01.2020.

 3. To allow annual  verification of  Service Book :

The members may kindly be permitted to see their individual service book.

 New Items :

 1. To Connect the Computers With Power Lines :

Much inconvenience is faced to connect the computers with power lines. Electric wires are found laid all over the sections in a very dangerous position which may cause short circuit at any movement. Kindly arrange to fix cabinets  or portion boards and make conceal electrification and networking.

2.  To build side shelves on both/either sides of Partition line to install Computers and its peripherals  in all the PA Sections as done in PA-III Section.

Kindly arrange to fix shelves or cabinets or Partition Boards in all the PA sections including PA(Misc) for easy  electrification and networking which will be convenient for  the employees to computer and  work smoothly.

3.  To allow Qualification Pay to the qualified Junior Accountants.

The Qualified Junior Accountants may kindly be allowed Qualification Pay as per Finance Lr No. 7/30/2011-E.III(A) dated 13th Jan 2012 circulated  by PA Wing Letter No…8(1)/12/PA-Admn.I/703-725 dated 08th February 2012  and subsequently upgraded to Rs,270/- p.m.  due to 7th CPC vide Ministry of Finance Lr No. 11-1/2016/7th CPC/Part. II(B) dated 14th November 2019.

Relaxation in qualifying marks in Type test of Departmental Examination for promotion of 12th class passed MTS officials to the cadre of LDC in PAO, Cuttack-reg.



Odisha Circle, Cuttack-753004

Office of the Director of Accounts(Postal), Daklekha Bhawan, Mahanadi Vihar, Cuttack-753004.

        The Director of Accounts (Postal)

        Cuttack - 753 004


Sub: Relaxation in qualifying marks in Type test of Departmental Examination for promotion of 12th class passed MTS officials to the cadre of LDC in PAO, Cuttack-reg.


Respected Sir,

I would like to draw your kind attention to the above referred subject. In this connection I had submitted a representation to the Secretary(Post) during his camp at Circle Office, Bhubaneswar on 09.03.2020 requesting him to reduce the qualifying marks in Paper-III (Typing Test) of Departmental Exam for promotion of  12 Nos MTS to LDC in PAO, Cuttack at par with the provisions contained in Directorate letter No. F-No-17-18/2018-SPN-1 dated 11.12.2019. It is inspiring to know that this matter is in active consideration of PA Wing. The syllabus of various Departmental Examination are also required to be reviewed & necessary amendments are also required to be made including relaxation of standard in Paper-III (Type Test) at par with the provisions contained in aforesaid Directorate letter dated 11.12.2019.

 Although PA wing vide Letter No. 48-1/67-PACE/696 to 719 dated 24-06-1993,  permitted Gr-D/Sorters who passed in Paper I & II, but failed in Paper-III(Type Test) for promotion as LDC against existing vacancies subject to the condition to pass the Type Test within 02 years failing which to be reverted to their substantive cadre, a few practical problems experienced in this regard are mentioned below.

1.   Two officials named Smt Jayanti Majhi & Sri Anil Kumar Buda  were promoted to LDC Cadre  vide this office Letter No- Admn.1/2990 dated 09/05/2018 under the above provision but they were allowed to appear in type test exam on 23.02.2020, almost after 02 years after request of this Service Association.

2.   In the said Directorate order dated 24.6.1993, it is not specified who will conduct the type test for such employees and the frequency of conduct of type test.

3.   Such employees are required to pass the type test within 02 years and they are to be given a minimum of 04 chances to pass the test. Hence proper mechanism may be evolved to meet the requirement.                                                                             

4.   In the PA Wing Letter  dated 24.6.1993, there is provision for conditional promotion but there is no provision if they will be allowed to appear the next Departmental Examination in Paper-III only.

  Therefore, it is humbly  requested to consider the following grievances sympathetically.

(i)          The promotion to LDC of 12  Candidates failed in type test exam may kindly be considered under dte letter dated 24/06/1993, and arrangements may be made for conducting  type test for them by the office.

(ii)        Under Provisions mentioned in DGP&T Letter dated 04.05.1981, review of result of the SC/ST Candidates may be undertaken.

(iii)       PA Wing may kindly be requested to allow PAOs to conduct the type test on half yearly basis as the candidates are supposed to make 4 attempts within the stipulated two years period. The first such test may kindly be made  as early as possible maintaining social distance for the examinees.

(iv)      If the promoted LDC will not get chance to appear type test on half yearly basis, they may kindly be allowed to appear only for type test in next Departmental Examination.

(v)        The type test exam of  Smt Jayanti Majhi & Sri Anil Kumar Buda  may be conducted along with these 12 candidates.

  With regards.                                                                  

Yours faithfully,


 Circle Secretary

The Sr DDG(PAF) may kindly be convinced to issue instruction to the Circle Offices for conducting  type test for such candidates as early as possible.
