TO ABOLISH 2/3rd POSTS KEPT VACANT FOR THE YEARS                                 2005 to 2008
As per Government of India orders on Downsizing of Central Government Services, Screening Committee for filling up/aboliotion of posts was constituted in the year 2001 and Annual Direct Recruitment (ADR) plan was approved by the Screening committeefor each year from 2001 to 2008.  Screening Committee cleared only 1/3rd vacancies for direct recruitment and balance 2/3rd posts were ablished as per its recommendations.
               Accordingly Department of Posts abolished 2/3rd vacant posts from 2001 to 2004.  Regarding the abolition of 2/3 rd vacant posts from 2005 to 2008, Postal Department & Communication Ministry requested Finance Ministry to grant exemption to Department of Posts from abolishing the vacant posts from 2005 to 2008, as it is an operative Department dealing with the general public and customers.  2/3rd posts earmarked for abolition from 2005 to 2008 are kept vacant (but not abolished) pending decision of the Finance Ministry.
               The ban on recruitment was lifted and the Screening Committee was abolished in the year 2009.  Government of India issued orders to fill up all vacant posts for the year from 2009 onwards.  Accordingly, Department of Posts, issued orders to fill up all vacancies for the year 2009 and 2010.  Orders are also issued to fill up all vacant posts for the year 2011 and 2012.  But, at the same time, Directorate issued clear instructions to all Chief PMGs that posts kept vacant for the year from 2005 to 2008 should not be filled up under any circumstances but should be kept vacant. (for abolition).
          Finance Ministry has now made it clear that no permission or exemption will be granted to any department including Department of Posts to fill up the posts kept earmarked for abolition as per the Screening Committee recommendations.  Accordingly Department of Posts has now issued orders to abolish all the 2/3rd vacant posts (Total 17093 posts for four years) for the year 2005 to 2008.
