Subject: Provision of concession to APS candidates for appearing/passing the inspector Posts Examination.
I am directed to refer to the above cited subject and (to say that certain concessions were granted to Army Postal Service (APS) officials in respect of taking Limited Departmental Competitive Examination (LDCE) for promotion to the inspector (Posts). These concessions were later withdrawn vide this Directorate letter of even number dated 5.9.2013 except for the concession of two additional chances for appearing in inspector (Posts) Limited Departmental Competitive Examination. As the withdrawal of the concessions was adversely affecting the morale of the personnel serving in the APS and also causing manpower crunch in APS, the matter has since been reviewed and it has been decided that the following concessions will be allowed to the APS candidates for appearing/ passing the inspector (Posts) Examination:-
(i) APS candidates may be granted ‘Qualified Status’ in case they qualify the inspector Posts examination provided they secure aggregate marks not less than 90% of the total marks secured by the last candidate. ‘selected on merit’ in their parent Circle (in civil side). if such qualified APS candidates have completed three year service as Junior Commissioned Officer (JCO) on the date of examination, they will be brought on the approved lists of inspector Posts below all candidates (including those belonging to SC/ST). Their position in the approved list inter-se will be determined by the order of merit in the departmental examination.
(ii) ‘Qualified Status’ APS candidates, who have not completed three years as Junior Commissioned Officer on the date of examination, will be brought on the approved lists of inspector Posts below all candidates (including those belonging to SC/ST) who have been declared successful in the last examination-held before the date on which they complete three year service as JCO. Their position in the approved list inter-se will be determined by the dates on which they complete three year service as JCO.
(iii) A qualified APS candidate, who leaves the APS before completing three years service as JCO will not be eligible to be placed on the approved list.
(iv), Age relaxation of 05 years may be given to APS candidates for appearing in Inspector (Posts) Limited Departmental Competitive Examination.
This issues with the approval Director General (Posts).
