CPMG UP Circle and copy to all recognized Service Unions/Federations)
I am directed to refer to yours suggestion that instructions similar to
those already issued by the Circler may be issued at the level of the
Directorate to the effect that the officials who are about to retire
should not be given full fledged independent charge at least six months
before their retirement in any single or double handed post office in
order to frauds.
2. The proposal of the Circle has been examined by the Competent
Authority. Reports were called for from the Postal Circles and
examined. It has been observed from the reports of the Circles that
number of frauds committed by officials who are due to retire in six
months is very minimal.
3 In view of the above , it has been decided not to put the condition
that the officials due to retire should not be given full fledged
independent charge of Sub Postmaster (SPM) of single handed and double
handed Post Offices at least six months before their retirement .
However, the Divisional Superintendent should satisfy himself that the
official has a clear service record with no past involvement of any
kind in fraud cases etc. and that he is a person of probity and has the
required competence to provide quality service. The integrity of the
system should not be compromised under any condition.
