Sub: Request for sympathetic consideration of representation of Shri Nand Lal Postal Assistant Dharamshala HPO, requesting for upgradation of below benchmark grading awarded by the reporting officer Shri Deep Singh Kapoor, SPOs Dharamshala for the period 01.04.2012 to 31.03.2013.
Shri Nand Lal who is working at present at Head Post Office Dharamshala has been awarded good bench mark for the period 2006-07 to 2011-12. The official has been awarded the numerical grading 3.1 for the period 01.04.2012 to 31.03.2013, ignoring the overall assessment of the conduct/performance of the official. The feedback provided by the immediate superior of the official where he has worked during the period under report should have been the basis atleast for awarding the gradings. The SPOs has never noticed personally anything wrong with the official and have never judged his performance on the basis of feedback from the immediate superior.
Though, Shri D S Kapoor has mindlessly abused his powers to record his findings merely to deny the benefit of MACP to the official not suitable to him. 06 officials in the Division are awarded Average grading and even in one case he awarded 0 numerical grading to an official.
In Dharamshala Division, there is shortage of 38 PAs and the shortage is being borne by the operative staff only and there is no shortage in the Divisional office rather there is excess posting.
The grading awarded by Shri D S Kapoor is harshest as it will deny him the financial benefits which are recurring consequences to the official.
Your goodself have been kind enough to decide such cases sympathetically and favorably.
Shri Nand Lal have referred an appeal to your goodself on 26.07.2013 for upgradation of the grading awarded by the SPOs Dharamshala.
Your goodself is requested to kindly do justice to the aggrieved.
With profound regards.
