7.7.13 Drivers in the Defence (Civilian) sector have voiced the demand that they drive specialized heavy vehicles, and the minimum age requirement for acquiring a driving license for these vehicles is 22 years, as opposed to 18 years for a general license. They also contend that they physically more strenuous and technically more complicated functions, and therefore they should be compensated better.

Analysis and Recommendations

7.7.14. The general hierarchy in the cadre of drivers is as given in the table below:


7.7.15 The Commission observes that career progression is adequate. In any case, since MACP is also allowed to drivers, the operation of such percentages is really of not much significance as pay up gradation through MACP ensures that no one stagnates beyond a stipulated period. The Commission therefore recommends replacement pay levels for them.

7.7.16 As regards creation of posts such as Motor Transport Officer, Transport Supervisor in the gazetted rank, the Commission is not making any recommendation to this effect, as creation of supervisory post depends on the cadre strength and functional justification in each ministry/department.

7.7.17 Regarding Drivers in the Defence (Civilian) sector, the Commission is of the view that the government may consider placing such drivers in a distinct category with differentiating features which would include more stringent qualifying criteria and clear job description bring out the higher responsibility and skills. The government should decide which of the  drivers fall in this category and accordingly modify their recruitment rules, harmonies their entry requirements and designate them on similar lines.

Electronic Data Processing (EDP) Staff

7.7.18 Government of India, over the last few decades, has gone in for computerisation in a big way. While some departments ventured ahead in the 1960s itself, by the 1980s the deployment was widespread. In the initial years the policy thrust was on creating "Management Information Systems (MIS)" and "Decision Support Systems (DSS)" for development, planning and responsive administration government. These have been the genesis of the present day e-Governance.

7.7.19 The entry pay of EDP staff is in the GP 2400 with minimum qualification  of Class XII with science and maths. The hierarchy reaches up to the level of Director in the GP 8700.Different levels in the hierarchy are filled through both promotion and direct recruitment (DR),  with requirements of minimum qualification for DR going up to Bachelors' and Masters' in Computer Applications.

7.7.20 The Associations of EDP staff have demanded a full-fledged All India EDP Service cadre for Group 'A' posts along with subordinate service cadre on the lines of the Indian Economic Service and Indian Statistical Service, to maintain uniform grade structure and improve career advancement. They have demanded making NIC their nodal agency and Department of Information Technology their cadre controlling authority. A demand has also been made to implement the Modified Flexible Complementing Scheme (MFCS) for these employees.

Analysis and Recommendations

7.7.21 The Commission has noted that EDP staff are spread across several ministries. In 2014 DoPT has notified the Model Recruitment Rules for various EDP posts. This notification states that ministries/departments may review their extant RRs and modify these in accordance will the Model Recruitment Rules. The notified hierarchy is given below:

Opening of Online Customer Survey by India Post
20 FEB 2018
Since inception in 1854, India Post has been serving its citizens by catering to their basic requirements of communications. Over the years, it has evolved by providing varied services to Indian Citizenry in terms of Mail Services (both domestic and international), Money remittances (both domestic and international), Small Savings, Philately, Securing lives, Retail Services and Bill Payments etc.

 As plethora of services are being provided by the India Post, it is imperative to know the nerve of the customer, how (s)he feels regarding the services provided, where the services need improvement and to change the customer orientation from customer satisfaction to customer delight.

In this connection, an Online Customer Feedback Survey is conceived wherein a customer can give his feedback or opinion on the services rendered by India Post. This Customer Feedback Survey will be for three months from 16.02.2018 to 15.05.2018 and available to public through India Post Website (www.indiapost.gov.in). Any citizen of the country can give feedback on the quality of service provided by India Post. The customer can also provide his comments/suggestions, if he so desires.

 On the basis of the feedbacks received from the survey, suitable inferences will be drawn upon areas to be improved not only for a particular service but will also help in identifying the lagging post office.
