Subject : Grant of Savings Bank allowance to Postal Assistants working in Savings Bank/Certificate Branches – clarification reg.
It has come to notice of this office that some Circles are giving SB allowance to those who have completed one year service and are working in SB / SC branch after qualifying the SB Aptitude Test and some Circles are interpreting it as if the eligibility to appear in the Aptitude Test is completion of one year service but the eligibility for getting SB Allowance is completion of five years service even if the Aptitude Test has been qualified after completion of one year of service and the official is working in the SB / SC Branch.
2. To clear the confusion of circles, the grant of SB allowance at prevailing rates approved by Ministry of Finance, Department of Economic Affairs, to those officials who have passed SB aptitude test after issue of SB Order dated 23.08.2011 with one year service condition and their services are utilized in SB/SC branch of Post Offices has been allowed.
This issues with the concurrence of JS & FA and with the approval of Secretary (Posts).
Assistant Director (SB-I)
