Subject: Revision of the monetary limits for investigations in loss and fraud cases by different authorities in the Departments of Posts

The monetary limits for conducting investigations in the loss/ fraud cases by different authorities were revised vide this Directorate letter No. 8-01/2019-Inv dated October 24, 2019. During the various field visits and interactions with Circles, a need was being felt to consider further revision of the monetary limits in this respect.

2 It has, therefore, been decided to revise the monetary limits for different postal authorities for conducting investigations and handing the loss/ fraud cases as under:

S. No. Level of Investigating Officer Present Monetary limit (in Rs) Revised Monetary limit (in Rs)
i. Inspector Posts/ ASPOs Upto Rs 1.00,000 Upto Rs 2,00,000
ii. Divisional Head/ Chief Postmaster Senior Postmaster/ Deputy Director of Mumbai/ Kolkata GPO* Assistant Director of equivalent officer of HOs/GPOs in case of non availability of Chief Postmaster > Rs 1,00,000 upto Rs 2,00,000 Rs 2,00,000 to Rs 5,00,000
iii. Assistant Director/APMG of Circle and Regional Offices Rs 2,00,000 to Rs 5,00,000 > Rs 5,00,000 to Rs 10,00,000
iv. Director Postal Services and above > Rs 5,00,000 > Rs 10,00,000

* Asstt Director of HOs/GPOs may also conduct investigation, in case of non-availability of CPM/Dy. Director

Note : These limits will be based on ‘Principal Amount of Loss/ Fraud including Temporary Misappropriation’. Normal Interest and Penal Interest will not be part of amount involved for the purpose of deciding the investigating authority.

3 Further, it has now been decided that only those loss and fraud cases shall henceforth be reported by the Circle to the Directorate, nm which the amount involved is more than Rs. 10 lakhs, instead of the present threashold limit of Rs. 5 lakhs.

4. Rest of the instructions contained in the office letter no. 8-01/2019-Inv dated October 24, 2019 hold good.

This issues with the approval of the Competent Authority.
