of Postman in TBOP/BCR
Sir / Madam,
I am directed to refer to this office letter No.4-4/2008-PCC dated 04-09-2008 regarding Sixth CPC – Revision of Pay Scales in respect of Group 'A', 'B', 'C', and 'D' Employees 2008.
2. The existing pay scale of Postmen is Rs.3050-75-3800-80-4590. Sixth CPC has recommended up gradation of the pre-revised scale to Rs.3200-85-4900 placing them in the corresponding revised pay band of Rs.5200-20200 with grade pay of Rs.2000. Few Circles and the Staff Federations have sought clarification about fixation of pay of Postmen who have been granted financial up gradation(s) under TBOP/BCR schemes. The issue has been examined in consultation with the Ministry of Finance and it is clarified as under:
Pre-revised Pay Scale
Pre-revised scale recommended by Sixth CPC & approved by Govt.
Corresponding Pay Band and Grade Pay approved by Government
3. Necessary action may be taken by the Circles to fix the pay scales of Posmen/Mail Guards.
