Subject : Implementation of approved recommendation of Kamlesh Chandra Committee on GDS who are working in Departmental posts, such period should invariably be counted as qualifying engagement period for all purpose including annual increase.
I am directed to say that Kamlesh Chandra Committee had observed that the period for which a GDS was working in departmental Posts with the approval of Competent Authority are not being counted for annual increase in TRCA in the original GDS Posts and TRCA is fixed at the same stage by them before proceeding to work as Postman MTS on deputation.
