Minutes of the second Meeting on MACP anomalies held on 15/09/2010 – official minutes issued by DOPT
Minutes of the second meeting of MACP committee held on 15/09/2010 was officially released by the DOPT vide Memo no.11/1/2010-JCA dated 06/10/2010. There is no improvement as expected. The important item that the promotions earned by competitive examinations should not be counted for MACP promotions has not been discussed. The Postal unions have no say in the forum of National Council JCM and this is the major setback we are seeing in the issues like this , OTA rates etc. Since the Federation has been recognized, the delay in finalizing the nomination for the JCM National council from Postal Federations is highly deplorable. However the minutes of the meeting is placed hereunder for the information of the viewers. Please click the below link and down load.

R /madam
The remarks “Average “regarding my performance communicated to me vide your office letterNo. PNCE /MACP /CR Corr /10 2010 dated 19.7.2010 is not acceptable to me . My representation against this remark is as under.
As per orders on the subject, the controlling authority is required to review the performance of the official working under him from time to time during the year under review .You have not asses my performance very well and correctly because I have not received a single letter of communication about my performance .I have not received any single warning or caution letter from you during last five years. Therefore your remarks “Average “are nearly on prejudice mind and such remarks are not treated as valid as per the guidelines issued by the ministry of Home Affairs from time to time.
Whenever adverse entry is recorded in any CR of the official he should be given reasonable opportunity to defend his case. Adverse remark can not be noted all of his sudden at the end of the year .It is also further stated in the guideline issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs and Personnel that the adverse remark should be based on Established facts and not near on suspicion /Personnel opinion.
You have certainly violated the guidelines, therefore I request you to expunge remarks from my CR for the last five years. Your letters asking my representation for the last five years remarks is totally violation of the orders issued by ministry of Affairs and Personnel .As per orders on the subject the “Adverse “remarks to be communicated in the month of April every year .Therefore causing of the explanation is for the adverse entry for the last five years is uncalled for .So I do not accept the remarks communicated to me.

Thanking you yours faithfully
