Illustration 1: If an employee H is presently drawing Pay of Rs 55,040 (Pay in the Pay Band Rs 46340 + Grade Pay Rs 8700 = Rs 55040), his pay should be entered in the calculator as Rs 55040 i.e including Grade Pay. The Pay will be fixed as Rs 1,41,600 (Example No I in Para No 5.1.29)

Illustration 2: If an employee T is presently drawing pay of Rs 24,200 (Rs 20,000 + 4,200) and if the post occupied by T is placed one level higher in GP 4600, then the basic pay should be entered as Rs 24,600 (Rs 20,000 + 4,600) and the pay will be fixed as Rs 64,100 (Example No II in Para 5.1.29). Hence, this example is applicable to Inspector Posts in our Department.

Illustration 3: In our Department the GP of IP/ASP/SP has been upgraded to Rs 4600, 4800 and 5400 respectively. Hence as per the Illustration 2 given below Para 5.1.29, the MACP IPs and MACP ASPs are eligible for GP Rs 4800 and Rs 5400 respectively. i.e their new pay level would be 8 and 9.

It is credited with the largest postal network in the world with one post office serving 7174 people and covering an area of approximately 21.2 sq. kms.


Department of Posts has launched a pilot project ‘Project Arrow’ to lay the foundation for a comprehensive, long‐term transformation of India Post.

With rapid economic growth and technological advancement, the mail profile in India Post in terms of volume has shifted to Business‐to‐Customer (B2C) and Business‐to‐Business (B2B) segments. To be in line with this transformation, India Post has leased three dedicated freighter aircraft for carriage of mail, parcel and logistics to and from the North Eastern region operating six days a week on Kolkata‐Guwahati‐Imphal‐ Agartala‐Kolkata and the metro cities such as Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata and Bangalore with Nagpur serving as the mail exchange hub.

An on‐line web‐based domestic money transmission service called iMO was launched in January 2006 which enables the customer to receive money in minutes from any of the post offices providing this service. Under this service, a person can send amount from Rs.1000/‐ up to Rs.50, 000/‐ in one transaction instantly. The service is functional in 2175 locations across the country.
