postmaster--job description ok.. get good salary?... i dont think so.. less than the equally service PA... is it not..
posted in remote area.. no HRA.. no split duty allowance.. no chance to appear for Sr. PM or Gr. B exam..no officiating chance.. though all HSG I and PM Gr.III posts are vacant.. no promotion in the prescribed period..if it was given.. all the officials who have passed LSG in 2004 would be in PM Gr.III post by this time.. it is seems the postmaster cadre is cursed one... we are not at treated well...it is almost in every postmaster's--exam passed officials mind...

HSG-I and PM GR.III posts are almost vacanct. the senior most officials of the office i.e. The BCR(!?!?!) officials work in that posts. But the PM GR.I and PM gr. II postmasters are not permitted to offciate in that posts stating that they are not yet completed the required period of qualification... are postmasters the so called new cadre are treated well?

Nowdays rules & regulations are not working infront of administration. Becoming sincere postmaster will not work out he has to put his skills & should give a beautiful colour to his work with proporationate figures & also should look out his surronding policts , caste ,etc etc etc,

ys u r right. u should go with admn without any qn, do adjust with the officer in charge of postings, even ready to kneel down to his feet then u will get post in the same office even till retirement. they will even create post by diversion and make u sit in the same office.. u should be ready to adjust in all the way.. need not worry about ur work efficiency, seniority, etch...apart from this political background, caste etc etc alone works out... not ur capability...

the current postmasters are set as gud example for the PAs for not to appear for the postmaster exam at all. they prefer to work as pa with all ACP I, ACP II, ACP iii... with corporate rate HRA...full salary, less responsibility..leave facility etc... so happy. poor postmaster who have opted... the fate works...
