Aadhar not mandatory for booking an International Parcel, says Department of Posts

Ministry of Communications
Aadhar not mandatory for booking an International Parcel, says Department of Posts

10 SEP 2018

The Department of Posts today clarified that it is mandatory to produce an Identity Proof acceptable for important transactions like booking an International Parcel or International EMS (Merchandise) for safety and security reasons. One of the accepted Identity Proof is Aadhaar, along with others like driving license, Passport, Voter ID etc which are also acceptable. Aadhaar, as per the prevailing norms in the country, is not a mandatory document to be produced at the time of booking. Moreover, all such documents are only required for office record and are NOT required to be pasted on the consignments.

The clarification comes in the wake of a news report published in The Times of India, Bengaluru edition dated 10.09.2018 with the heading “India Post asks for display of Aadhaar number on parcels“. The department said that it appears that the confusion was created by an erroneous message generated from the twitter account of the office of the Chief Postmaster General, Delhi Circle wherein it was mentioned that pasting of ID proof on consignments is in accordance with international guidelines.

Instructions are being reiterated to the post offices to ensure smooth booking of articles taking the convenience and regulatory requirements into account together. The Department of Posts said that a copy of any ID proof including Aadhaar is required for booking of International Parcel and International EMS (Merchandise) for security purpose based on requests received from organizations like Narcotics Control Bureau and Wild Life Crime Control Bureau. India Post is committed to ensuring safety and security in its operations.

Grant of benefit of pay fixation at time of promotion to Inspector posts

Grant of benefit of pay fixation at time of promotion to Inspector posts

Inspector-posts-Pay-Fixation
 No.20-27/2015-SPB-II
Government of India
Ministry of Communications
Department of Posts
(Personnel Division)

Dak Bhawan, Sansad Marg
New Delhi – 110 001
Dated 20th August, 2018

To

All Head of Circles
All Head of Regions

Subject: Grant of benefit of pay fixation at time of promotion to Inspector posts.

Sir/Madam,

I am directed to say that references from various Circles are being received in Directorate seeking clarification on fixation of pay of the Postal Assistants, who have already been granted benefit of financial upgradation under MACP scheme, on their promotion as Inspector posts on the basis of LDCE. Further, consequent upon upgradation of grade pay of Inspector posts to Rs. 4600/- w.e.f. 01.01.2006, disparity in fixation of pay by different Circles has also been noticed by the Directorate while re-fixing pay of Inspector Posts posted in Directorate to the extent that in similar case some Circles have granted promotional increment to the officials who have been granted financial upgradation under MACPs, while others have not allowed, presumably invoking para 4 of Annexure I to MACP guidelines

2. The matter has been examined in consultation with Establishment Division of Directorate and it has been decided to convey that Inspector Posts is not in a regular promotional hierarchy of Postal Assistant and they can become Inspector Posts only on attaining merit in Competitive Examination. As such, 3% fitment benefit should be allowed to officials at the time of fixation of pay on promotion to the post of Inspector (Limited Departmental Competitive Examination) even after availing financial upgradation under MACP.

3. This may be brought to notice of all concerned.

Yours faithfully,

sd/-
