The Indian Government’s Ministry of Communications and Department of Posts has issued a directive regarding the management of the Multi-Tasking Staff (MTS) in the Administrative Offices and Regional Offices. It has been observed that the management of the MTS cadre varies in different circles. Henceforth, a reservation roster for the MTS in both CO and RO will be maintained centrally at the Circle Office. The MTS officials will not be subject to rotation but transfers can be made in the administrative interest with reasons recorded in writing. Transfers on the request of the MTS officials will be outside the purview of the transfer under Rule 38 of the Postal Manual Volume IV.

- MTS officials will not be subject to rotational from one office to another, CO to RO or RO to CO or from RO to RO. However, in administrative interest such transfers can be done for reason(s) to be recorded in writing.
