Default STP of Postal Service of Pakistan

@ All CSP's at forum & Seniors

What kind of STP a Postal Group CSP undergoes and in which city. What are the future prospects in this cadre of Civil Service of Pakistan both in the short run and in the long run at senior levels.

Also how's the promotion trend is in this group........???

What priviledges and facilities do a fresh Postal Group CSP enjoys, if any at all ?

+ any suggestion whether to join this group or not if 1 may earn aroun 30-50K/pm in private or public sector!!!

waiting for an early input.
Hira Butt !

Postal Group

The Postal Group mainly comprises the Pakistan Post Office which is one of the oldest departments of the Sub-Continent working under Pakistan Post Office Act, 1898. It is one of the largest public sector organizations with over 13,000 post offices dedicated to providing high quality postal and financial services at minimum possible cost. Besides, it also performs a number of important functions on behalf of other Federal and Provincial Government Departments / Institutions which, inter-alia include (1) Post Office Savings Bank, (2) Postal Life Insurance, (3) Civil & Military Pension Payments, (4) Collection of Utility Bills, (5) Renewal of Driving and Arms Licences, (6) Issuing P 1 V Licence etc. Organizational procedure and processes of the Post Office have been mastered through time and experience, and are ingrained In the organizational spirit and ethos.

Direct induction in the Gazetted ranks was a rare practice in Post Office Department. But as a result of reforms introduced in Civil Services structure by the then Prime Minister in the year 1972, the Postal Group was formed and young officers started joining the group regularly every year since 1973.

Until 1985, promotion in the Postal Group was also very rapid. But now a newly inducted officer in B-17 has to wait for about 10 to 12 years for his promotion in BPS-18. Yet the group has an edge over certain other services groups, such as posting in big cities, suitable medical, transport and accommodation facilities for its officers, and deputation to various training courses within and outside the country. The Postal Group is relatively a smaller group. Its present strength is only 183 officers.

The Pakistan Post Office is purely a public services department rendering diverse postal services to the customers with the sole mission of Khidmat, Dianat & Amanat. The dawn of the new millennium has introduced a great development in the postal area across the world, and the Pakistan Post Office today is playing a positive role in conveying and disseminating information and ideas relating to the whole range of human activities in political, social, economic, cultural, industrial and commercial sectors.

I am a Postal Group Officer posted in Postal Staff College where we conduct the Specialized Training Program for Postal Group Probationary officers. Presently duration this STP is 40 weeks. The break up is as under:

1. Basic Orientation to functions of Pakistan Post 1 Week
2. Computer Training 4 Weeks
3. Postal Management Course- Phase I 8 Weeks
4. Postal Management Course- Phase I 10 Weeks
5. Field Attachments / Independent Charge 15 Weeks
6. Research paper presentations 1 Week
7. STP Examination 1

As far as the prospects in this group are concerned, there are several good things about it. For the time being I just explain important postings in B-17. After completion of training the Postal Group officers are posted as either Divisional Superintendet of Post Services or Chief Postmaster of a big General Post Office. As DSPS, the officer is the administrator of all the post offices (Except GPOs in B-17 and 18) in a Postal Division. Being Chief Postmaster, the officer is the head of a large GPO. These field officers invariably get designated accommodations, official vehicle, office and residence telephones, orderly etc.
