APPEAL

On behalf of department of Posts, I hereby appeal to you to call off the proposed indefinite strike from 22th May,2018 as no useful purpose is served by such strikes/agitations.

2. The issues submitted by the Unions under active consideration of the Department. Moreover, at a time when the Department is going through a complete IT makeover such agitation will only allow to strengthen the hands of our competitors which agreeably is not in the overall interest of the Postal Department. The proposed indefinite strike may, therefore, be called off.

S/d,
(Daisy Barla)
Director (SR & Legal)

Non Implementation of GDS Committee Report

Non Implementation of GDS Committee Report

NUGDS/Agitation/April 2018

New Delhi
27-04-201 8

To

The Secretary
Department Of Posts
Dak Bhavan
New Delhi

sir,

Sub: Non Implementation of GDS Committee Report

GDS committee report, containing favorable recommendations to the bill paid GDS employees was submitted to the Government in November 2016. A discussion on the report was held before the unions and the Department on March 2017. The officers of the postal services board had promised after discussion that the recommendations would be implemented within 6 months which was taken by the union. with gratitude. But though 17 months have elapsed, there is no move from the Department to implement the recommendations which we note painfully. We are not in a position to explain delay before the employee. VII th CPC report relating to about 1 crore central government employees and pensioners was implemented with the 8 months of the submission to the Government. There is no justification for the abnormal delay for the non implementation of GDS committee report, relating to 240000 GDS employees of the postal department alone.

In the above circumstances, we are constrained to move on serious agitation programmes against the attitude of the Government including non attending of PLI/RPLI, and SB/RD business. Along with this, we are preparing for conducting nation wide strike in the month of May 2018. Statuary notice for the strike will be given in the appropriate time.

Thanking you.

Yours sincerely

S/d,
P.U.Muraleedharan
General Secretary

Speedy implementation of GDS Committee recommendations and related matters

AIGDSU – Speedy implementation of GDS Committee recommendations and related matters reg

To:

The Secretary,
Department of Posts,
Dak Bhavan,
New Delhi-110001.

Respected Sir,

Sub: Speedy implementation of GDS Committee recommendations and related matters reg.

In spite of our countrywide requests, memorials, protest meetings/Demonstrations and Strikes there is unreasonable delay in consideration and implementation of the GDS Committee recommendations. The level of tolerance has already crossed it limits. This time we have accepted OFFICERS Committee with open mind but still discriminative attitude is seen towards this low paid and neglected/exploited lot.

The Gramin Dak Sevaks role in future INDIA POST especially in Banking is more significant and we are also carefully watching the developments. There cannot be any compromise about their status and service conditions in the changed scenario and the GDS should get what they deserve. The Government, being a model employer, should consider our reasonable demands in the interest of service to the rural population of this country. The old policies of the British regime such as cheap labour and exploitation are outdated in the present situation and it is high time that decisions are at the appropriate levels in democratic norms. India is a welfare state and we are eagerly waiting for BETTER TREATMENT TO G.D.S AT LEAST THIS TIME.

We do sincerely hope that you will take personal interest in this matter and play vital role for speedy implementation OF ALL RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE COMMITTEE TO TAKE EFFECT FROM 01.01.2016 at par with 7th CPC extended to Departmental counterparts.

With profound regards,

Yours faithfully,

Dear Comrades,

You are well aware that inordinate delay regarding the process, approval & implementation of the positive recommendations of Kamalesh Chandra Committee caused more and more anger in the agitating minds of 2.50 lakh GDSs in the country.

 

It becomes unbearable to every body to explain and expect the situation as there is a floating of messages & clippings in social media on the implementation of the Committee Report for GDS but none from the Govt & Dept.

 

It became unavoidable for us to commence the series of agitation programmes at all levels to built pressure and draw attention of the Govt & department towards the resentment among GDS employees.

 

Mobilize and organize GDS members to make all the programmes a grand success.

 

AIPEU-GDS launched a series of agitation programmes demanding :

(i) Immediate implementation of all positive recommendations of Kamalesh Chandra Committee

(ii) Complete the process of Membership verification in GDS cadre.

The 3rd All India Conference of AIPEU-GDS held in Allahabad unanimously decided to hold phased manner agitational programmes.

1st phase:

3 DAYS RELAY HUNGER FAST
IN FRONT OF ALL CHIEF POSTMASTERS GENERAL OFFICES
IN ALL CIRCLES :

Opening of Online Customer Survey by India Post

Ministry of Communications

Opening of Online Customer Survey by India Post

20 FEB 2018

Since inception in 1854, India Post has been serving its citizens by catering to their basic requirements of communications. Over the years, it has evolved by providing varied services to Indian Citizenry in terms of Mail Services (both domestic and international), Money remittances (both domestic and international), Small Savings, Philately, Securing lives, Retail Services and Bill Payments etc.

As plethora of services are being provided by the India Post, it is imperative to know the nerve of the customer, how (s)he feels regarding the services provided, where the services need improvement and to change the customer orientation from customer satisfaction to customer delight.

In this connection, an Online Customer Feedback Survey is conceived wherein a customer can give his feedback or opinion on the services rendered by India Post. This Customer Feedback Survey will be for three months from 16.02.2018 to 15.05.2018 and available to public through India Post Website (www.indiapost.gov.in). Any citizen of the country can give feedback on the quality of service provided by India Post. The customer can also provide his comments/suggestions, if he so desires.

On the basis of the feedbacks received from the survey, suitable inferences will be drawn upon areas to be improved not only for a particular service but will also help in identifying the lagging post office.
