          Sub:    Grant of periodical meeting to NFPE affiliated Associations

          Ref:    Directorate letter No. 02/04/2012-SR dt. 30.05.2012

          Agenda items of the All India Postal SBCO Employees Association for the periodical meeting of NFPE and its affiliated Associations are submitted  hereunder :-

Agenda for  periodical meeting with Secretary(Posts)

1.       Savings Bank Control Organization in the Department of Post was decentralized from erstwhile Postal and Telegraphs Audit office. Hence, SBCO should be regarded as an Audit wing of savings bank and be given status equal to Postal Accounts on all aspects as the functions and responsibilities of both are synonymous. The staff SBCO are recruited separately as Postal Assistants (SBCO) and trained exclusively in control procedures. Therefore, utilization of these personnel in operative work like reconciliation of SO SB balances by deputing them to Sub offices, settlement of minus balances, settlement of OMs should not be resorted to.

2.       Request for reevaluation of the issue of administrative control over SBCO staff to resume independent and proper functioning of SBCO wing. Divisional heads have no in depth knowledge in SBCO procedures and functioning of SBCO. As such, the powers of writing of APAR should be vested again with Accounts officers ICO (SB) as they are the next supervisory officers with full knowledge of the functioning of SBCO branch and its procedure and the personal knowledge about the SBCO officials.

3.       In respect of decentralized savings categories i.e, RD/MIS/SCSS the roll of SBCO must be checking of vouchers with reference to the data available in LAN Sanchay post for timely detection of fraudulent activities. It is therefore requested that the maintenance of RD ledgers for HO/SOs in V2 SBCO may be dispensed with.

Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,
