 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 handling the loss/ fraud cases as under:

Level of investigating Officer

Present Monetary limit (in Rs)

Revised Monetary limit (in Rs)

Up to Rs 1,00,000

> Rs 1,00,000 up to Rs 2,00,000

> Rs 2,00,000 to Rs 5,00,000

> Rs 2,00,000 to Rs 5,00,000

> Rs 5,00,000 to Rs 10,00,000

> Rs 5,00,000

> Rs 10,00,000

 Assistant  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, in which the amount  involved  is more  than Rs. 10 lakhs, instead of the present threshold limit of Rs. 5 lakhs.

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

This issues with the approval of the Competent Authority.
