Exclamation A new Post Office Officer-A short Guide

After CSS you will undergo Potsla Training at Islamabad Postal Staff College and then after training you will be posted to various Offices through out Pakistan because you are a Federal Officer
Pak Post is headed by Director General Pak Post and Postmaster Generals (Basic Scale-20) report to him directly. If i am not wrong, each province has one Postmaster General (PMG) abd Officer headed by a PMG is Called Generally Circle Office which serves a considerable area if not whole province. Then Deputy Postmaster Generals (Basic Scale-19) report to PMGs and offices headed by Dy PMGs are called Regional Offices under whose administrative Control General Post Office (Headed by Chief Postmaster) and Small Post Offices (Headed by Postmasters,APMs etc depending the type of Post Office (Higher Selection Grade Post Office by a BS-14 and Sub Post Office by a BS-11 of BS-9) function.
Directorate General PPO --------- -DG PAK POST
Circle Office------------------------POSTMASTER GENERAL
Regional Office---------------------Deputy POSTMASTER GENERAL
Divisional Offices-------------------Divisional Superintendent Post Offices

As a new Officer, most officers are posted to Many Divisions as DSPO (Divisional Superintendent Post Offices) and yo will have under your direct Command not less than 600-700 people including Postmasters, Clerks, Postmen, and Staff operating many Small Post Offices. The number of Post Offices in a Division (commanded by DSPO) CAN VARY depending upon the area i.e Rural or Urban. Approximately 70-90 post offices in City Area under a Division and in Rural Areas Post Offices are very distant and many be upto 150-170 (may be you cannot avail time to visit each of the post offices during your normal tenure of 3 years). You have full powers and contingencies while serving as DSPO in a Division or Unit and enjoy a lot if in city area.
Normally Family accommodation is provided to DSPO.
A Potohar Jeep or a Suzuki Carry Hi-Roof if in city area at your disposal with driver. You cannot expect Land Cruisers........... Sorry for that.
You are Competent Authority to Exercise your Powers upto Basic Scale-07 (may be BS-9 after upgradation). You can take discipline action at your own. Dont need to look at high ups for every step. With such a huge system at your disposal you have to be aware of what is going on so Inspectors, Town Inspectors will assist you. You will have to Visit each Post Office twice a year for Inspection and once for normal Mini-visit (you will be receive warmly everywhere being the King of Unit) but Please dont mess up inspection of post office is not easy you have to do some work there. Any Fraud (many do occur at least a unit carried 20-25 fraud cases at a time), Loss, Theft at Post Office .

Exclamation

ou are responsible for each and every thing happening in your Unit and all post offices under your command.
Its a king like job.
Visits to Far Post Offices let you fetch some TA/DAs and its your main job too.
You will have to see your Boss Deputy PMG or a PMG occasionally.
Your Own office where you will sit will comprise of 10-12 clerks and 3-4 Assistant Superintendeds (graduate inspectors BS-14) and 3-4 Town Inspectors (bs-11) and Mail Over Seers. This will be your own staff (keep in mind whole unit is your own staff) but these 15-20 people sitting in your office constitute Admin Office of the whole Unit with each clerk working for one branch.
Mainly J-Branch (Budget branch)
Loss & Fraud Branch - deals with losses and frauds
PT-Branch deals with provincial taxes
B-I and B-II branches ( these are Staff branches and clerks holding these office are mostly backed /supported (clandestinely) by Unions. So be aware.
G-branch and A-branch are routine functional for post office operations.
So thats it if you are a new officer its all a general view i hope it helps

Question

If you are posted in Directorate General or Circle Office


Then its quite sedentary job and a bit non-active and you will just be a gazetted worker to peep into the files whole the day long till evening and whereever a DSPO goes on leave you may be posted for his leave period. You will not groom a good officer if in an office where more senior officers are holding and your authority will be shunned down and reduced from a whole division to a room full of files and you will avail just pick and drop like a school kid and freedom (enjoyed at Unit) heavily cut off. No contingencies, even Naib Qasids will not pay heed to bells rung by you because there are many bells in the galleries ( the bells installed outside the office door and button with the officer, the officer rings the bell and Runners/Naib Qasids attend the bell) because When you are in Directorate, or big office there are surely many officers of your scale and many more higher than you. So you will have a less priority. Prefer to go in Unit and enjoy being a csp. If you like to work on a chair quitely then your own will.

i served in post office for 3 years and you can say its very short time span but i learnt alot from Post Office..........i started my career as a lower staff and worked with many officers and very closely observed the offices of PPO department......people are good and helping......if YOU ARE ALLOCATED IN POSTAL GROUP never feel depreciated....its better than many and yuo avail Foriegn Courses, Not very Tough Routine as in Military Lands (army personnel wherever never like civil personnel of the same setup) . If they cannot harm you, they will at verge of leaving you will put some Adverse Remarks on PER etc etc. So in Post Office no Military Officers.......You enjoy huge constituency obliging you and you are at Service of Public Of Pakistan directly...... A PR making job.....never hear peolpe who say that PPO has second line lot of CSS etc etc. No CSP wears Crowns (except police) so you all are same go ahead. OMG also donot enjoy service as CSPs as power / authority is less as they are generally (as per my knowledge) Ministerial type of Gazzeted officers.
IT DOES NOT MATTER WHICH DEPARTMENT YOU ARE IN, BUT THE THING MATTERS IS THAT HOW YOU DO THERE.

Default A bit more about Post Office

Promotion from BS-17 to 18 is a bit slow
Medical Re-Imbursement Allowed as per Civil Services Rules
Postings / Transfer as routine matter (3 years tenure of a DSPO (YOU))
You will undergo Posting/Transfer normally after completion of your tenure of 3 years at the least
Accommodation to officers is usually available in most areas. Staff suffers much about accommodation.
Financial Powers / Administrative Powers as per Post Office Manual Vlume-IV & III (you will study them)
Volume-III and Volume-IV are most important and tricky with respect to new post office officers at staff college
Volume-VI is important about Rules of Business of Post Office
You can ask me the formats (soft copy) of how to Inspect a Post Office.
Deputation exists as per civil rules
Leave and Leave-Ex-Pakistan are usually not a problem for officers
Audit and Accounts are a bit tricky and you have to suffer the Internal Audits by the office of Director of Accounts,PPO, Lahore
Post Office Account/ Audit Authority is its own and Pays/Pensions are dealt by Director of Accounts, PPO, Lahore and it has nothing to do with AGPR.

POST OFFICE AUTHORTIES ARE LOOKING TO OBTAIN MORE BUSINESS FROM OTHER ORGANIZATIONS TO INCREASE THE REVENUE OF THE POST OFFICE TO ENSURE ITS STABILITY. BECAUSE TELEGRAPH BUSINESS DETACHED ALREADY AS PTCL AND POSTAL SERVICES LESS FREQUENTLY USED COZ OF PHONES/CELL PHONES. SO THEY ARE LOOKING TO PROVIDE SOME MORE TO THEIR CUSTOMERS AT THEIR COUNTERS .......DIRECTOR GENERAL ARSHAD (FORMER PTV DG) WORKED A LOT ON IT BUT AFTER HIM THE PROCESS SLOWED.
