NFPE CALLS UPON POSTAL EMPLOYEES TO MAKE 2019 JANUARY 8th & 9th TWO DAYS STRIKE – A GRAND SUCCESS

NFPE CALLS UPON POSTAL EMPLOYEES TO MAKE 2019 JANUARY 8th & 9th TWO DAYS STRIKE – A GRAND SUCCESS

THE FOLLOWING IS THE EDITORIAL PUBLISHED IN ‘POSTAL CRUSADER’ THE OFFICIAL ORGAN OF NATIONAL FEDERATION OF POSTAL EMPLOYEES (NFPE)

IMPORTANCE OF JANUARY 2019 TWO DAYS STRIKE

National Convention of Workers organized by Central Trade Unions (except BMS), independent Federations and Associations viz; Central Government and State Govt. Employees, Banks, Insurance, Defence production employees etc, held at Mavlankar Hall, New Delhi on 28th September 2018, has decided to conduct two days nationwide strike on 8th& 9th January 2019. Earlier, Confederation of Central Govt. Employees & Workers, in its National Convention held at Hyderabad on 10th June 2018, has decided to go for one day’s nationwide strike on 15th November 2018, demanding settlement of 10 points Charter of demands of Central Govt. Employees, Pensioners, Gramin DakSevaks and casual/contract workers. In the changed circumstances, Confederation has decided to postpone the 15th November 2018 one day strike and to join the two days strike on 8th and 9thJanuary 2019 announced by the National Convention of Workers. There is no change in the 10 points charter of demands of Confederation adopted in the Hyderabad National Convention.

The declaration adopted in the National Convention of Workers held on 28th September 2018 has stated as follows:

“Government is dragging its feet on wage negotiations of public sector in bipartite settlement and 7th Central Pay Commission anomalies of Central Government employees. Four sub committees were formed by the Government to address several issues raised by Central Government employees (NJCA) such as scrapping of New Pension Scheme (NPS) review of Minimum wage and fitment formula, restoration of allowances and allowing option-I as one of the pension benefit formula. But nothing has been done.

The Central Government Employees organisations including the Defence and Railways have been planning united action against the betrayal of the Government and asserting their genuine demands including scrapping of New Pension Scheme. This National Convention extends full support to their struggle and upholds all their demands.”

Thus, the entire Trade unions (other than BMS) has taken serious view of the negative attitude of the Central Government towards the demands of Central Government employees and Pensioners and extended full solidarity and support to our struggle.

Unrest among the New Pension Scheme (NPS) employees is rising day by day. Those NPS employees who retired from service, in 2015 to 2018, after completing ten years’ service are getting a paltry sum of Rs.1000 to 3000 only as monthly annuity pension. How can a pensioner and his family live with such a megre amount as pension. This is equal to “No Pension”, Under the Old Pension Scheme (OPS) an employee who completed minimum ten yearsservice is eligible for 50% of last pay drawn as minimum pension.

Regarding increase in Minimum Pay and Fitment formula, the assurance was given to the NJCA leaders by none other than the Hon’bleHome Minister and Finance Minister on 30.06.2016. Two years are over but nothing happened. Government has replied in Parliament that, at present, there is no proposal for increasing Minimum Pay and Fitment formula. Thus the entire Central Govt. Employees are betrayed. Regarding Pensioners, the one and the only favourable recommendation of the 7th CPC i.e. Option-I, stands rejected by Government.

Three lakhs GraminDakSevaks of the Postal department conducted a heroic strike for sixteen days and finally Govt. was compelled to accept their demands.But while issuing orders, eventhough new pay scale recommended by the Kamalesh Chandra Committee is implemented, regarding arrears the Committee’s recommendation was rejected and modified by Govt. Some important recommendations like Children Education Allowance, Time bound three financial upgradations etc. are still pending. Regarding revision of wages of Casual Labourers, orders issued by Postal Directorate is yet to be implemented in some Circles and Divisions and their demand for regularisation is not considered favourably by Govt.

The situation in the country is deteriorating day by day. National economy including value of Indian currency, suffered serious setback due to pro-corporate, anti-labour and anti-people neo-liberal policies pursued by the Central Government, grievously impacting the livelihood of the working people and farmers.

The situation due to steep rise in petrol and diesel prices with cascading effect on increase in prices of all daily life utility items, especially food items, is resulting in torturous impact on common masses. The unemployment situation is getting aggravated with employment generation practically turned negative even in most labour-oriented sectors. The agricultural sector and farmers are in deep distress. The after-effects of demonitisation and faulty GST Continue to adversely impacting the deep crisis set in the fast-paced neo-liberal economic policies of the Government. Lack of job opportunities on the one hand and continued job losses, retrenchments, illegal closures on the other hand are imposing miserable condition on the ordinary families for their food, education of children and medical care of the sick and elderly, Aggressive move to sell the shares of the Public Sector undertakings and onslaught of privatization through various routes like outsourcing, PPP etc. is going on in full swing. The demand for universal social security with guaranteed pension has fallen on deaf ears.

Central Govt. not only refused to respond to the just and genuine demands of the organized agitation of working class, but has been continuing its aggression against the hard-won labourrights of the workers, employees and Trade Unions. It is in this background the entire working class of our country has decided to fight back the onslaught of the Govt. against the working class and peasants.

National Federation of Postal Employees (NFPE) has been in the forefront of the struggle against the neo-liberal policies of the Govt. especially against the negative attitude of the Govt. towards the Central Govt. Employees demands including Postal employees.

On January 8th& 9th, about 18 to 20 crores organized and unorganized workers will go on two days strike. NFPE HQ calls upon the entirety of Postal and RMS employees including GraminDakSevaks and Casual, Part-time, Contingent employees to join the strike en-mass. It is a struggle for our survival.

AIRF requests Railway Board about Safety of the Railway employees

AIRF requests Railway Board about Safety of the Railway employees

No.AIRF/24(C)

Dated: 5th November, 2018

The Chairman,
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Safety of the Railway employees

This is in reference to my discussion held today with you, wherein I have requested you to review immediately Removal Cases of the Railway employees of Kharagpur Division of S.E. Railway, under para 14(ii), as also to do urgently to save Railwaymen from run-over, forced to work under unsafe conditions without taking block, as happened today between Sandila and Umartali Stations in Northern Railway.

 

In this connection, your kind attention is invited towards my earlier letters, D.O.No.AIRF/24(C) dated 13th and 17th August, 2018, vide which your kind attention was drawn towards the unpleasant incidents of commitment of suicide by Shri Harrison John, Loco Pilot, Jabalpur Division(West Central Railway) and Shri Bablu Kumar, Trackman, Sholapur (Central Railway).

 

We had requested your goodself to take necessary steps to ensure that no Railwayman commits suicide in frustration and sense of disappointment. It is quite unfortunate that, there is no visible improvement in the situation up till now, and another case of suicide has been noticed, wherein Shri G.K. Kishori, Asstt. Loco Pilot, Kharagpur, South Eastern Railway, has committed suicide on 3rd November, 2018, out of serious frustration, which is highly condemnable as well.

 

Co-workers of Late Shri G.K. Kishori had resorted to agitation owing to failure of his superiors to timely address the problem of the said deceased employee and they need not be subjected to any punitive action.

 

It may be recalled that, on the consistent and regular persuasions, Railway Board had issued instructions, on your intervention, to invoke Clause 14(ii) in exceptional cases only where D&AR enquiry is not practicable and safety of the state is under threat.

 

Through this letter we want to emphasize here that, urgent necessary steps should be taken by counseling the concerned officials, so that, no Railway employee is compelled to commit suicide and lose his/her precious life as the entire family of such Railway employee is put under serious distress.

We had also requested that, keeping in view various attacks on the Railway employees on duty as also run-over cases of Railway employees due to negligence and overlooking of prescribed procedure and rules need to be given serious thought, so as to avoid recurrence of such unpleasant incidents.

 

It is also requested that, “Rakshak” should immediately be supplied, as well as you have promised; working on the track without protection must be banned, and if Trackmen are forced to work under unsafe conditions, the deterrent punishment should be given to the guilty supervisors and officers responsible.

 

While communicating our serious concern over such incidents, AIRF once again emphasizes that necessary steps be taken with all seriousness, so that, no such cases occur in future.

Yours faithfully

(Shiva Gopal Mishra)
General Secretary

On receipt of pension papers from Head of Office, the Pay & Accounts Officer concerned will, after applying requisite checks, assess the amount of pension and issue the Pension Payment Order (both halves of Pension Payment Order, i.e. disburser’s portion and pensioner’s portion) not later than one month in advance of the date of retirement of the Government servant with forwarding authority letter, duly inksigned and embossed, to Central Pension Accounting Office (CPAO) who in turn will generate on computer a Special Seal Authority on the basis of details given in the Pension Payment Order and authority letter of the Pay & Accounts Officer and forward disburser’s half of PPO with Special Seal Authority to the Central Pension Processing Centre (CPPC) of the concerned authorized Bank. The Pay & Accounts officer after ascertaining that the special seal of authority has been issued shall send pensioners’ half of PPO to be handed over to the retiring employee. However, if the employee opts to take the PPO from bank, both halves shall be sent to CPAO. All records will be maintained in the CPPC and the disbursing branch, will make the payments to the pensioner on authorization of payment of pension by the CPPC. The CPPC however is only the back office for processing pensions, all pension related problems/grievances of the pensioners will continue to be handled by the concerned paying branch as before.

(6.4) What is to be done in case the pension has not been fixed correctly?
The Pay & Accounts Officer while issuing the pension authorization will forward one copy of the pension calculation sheet (out of three received by him from the Head of Office) as certified by the Head of Office and countersigned by him (Pay & Accounts Officer) to the pensioner along with the intimation of his having sent the pension payment authority/PPO to the CPAO. In case it is found from the pension calculation sheet that pension has been fixed incorrectly, the matter may be taken-up with the Head of Office. PAO concerned, if necessary, will issue an amendment authority letter to Central Pension Accounting Office for onward transmission to the CPPC to carry out necessary amendments in both halves of PPO.

Proof of Concept (PoC) of Alternate Digital KYC Process for issuing new mobile connections to subscribers

Government of India
Ministry of Communications
Department of Telecommunications
(Access Services Wing)
Sanchar Bhawan, 20, Ashoka Road, New Delhi -110001


File No: 800-26/2016-AS.II

Dated: 06.11.2018

To
All Unified Licensees (having Access Service Authorization)/ Unified Licensees (AS)/ Unified Access Services Licensees/ Cellular Mobile Telephone Service Licensees.

Subject: Proof of Concept (PoC) of Alternate Digital KYC Process for issuing new mobile connections to subscribers-regarding.

This is in continuation of this office letter of even number dated 26.10.2018 vide which Licensees were directed to discontinue the Aadhaar based E-KYC process for issuing new mobile connections to subscribers and re-verification of existing mobile subscribers. Further, in para 7 of the instructions, all Telecom Service Providers were asked to ensure readiness of their systems and offer the Proof of Concept (PoC) of the proposed Alternate Digital KYC Process by 05.11 .2018 for approval.

2. As per the proposed digital alternate KYC process by Telecom Industry for issuing new mobile connections, the Customer Acquisition Form (CAF) is to be embedded with live photograph of subscriber along with the original POIlPOA document thereby digitizing the end to end process for on boarding of new mobile subscribers by making it completely paperless.

3. The procedure to be followed for issuing mobile connections using the alternate digital KYC process is as follows:

a. The entire process shall only be used through the authenticated applications (App) hosted
by the Licensees.

b. The access of the App shall be controlled by the Licensees and it should be ensured that the same is not used by unauthorized persons.

c. The customer desirous of obtaining a new mobile connection shall visit the authorized POS location of the Licensee or vice-versa. The original Proof of Identity/Proof of Address (PoI/PoA) documents shall be in possession of the customer.

d. The Licensee must ensure that the Live photograph of the customer is taken at POS terminal and the same photograph shall be embedded in the CAF. Further, the system application of the Licensee shall put a water-mark having CAF number, GPS coordinates, POS name, unique POS Code (assigned by licensees) and Date & time stamp on the captured live photograph of the customer.

e. Similarly, the live photograph of the original POI/POA documents shall be captured and water-marking as mentioned above shall be done.

f. Thereafter, all the entries in the CAF shall be filled as per the POI/POA documents and information furnished by the customer. In those POI/POA documents where QR code is available, such details can be auto-populated by scanning the QR code instead of manual filling the details. For example, in case of physical Aadhaar/e-Aadhaar downloaded from UIDAI where QR code is available, the details like name, gender, date of birth and address can be auto-populated by scanning the QR available on Aadhaar/e-Aadhaar.

g. Once the above mentioned process is completed, an One Time Password (OTP) shall be sent to customer’s own alternate mobile number. Upon successful validation of the OTP, it will be treated as customer signature on CAF. However, if the customer does not have any own alternate mobile number, then mobile number of his/her family members/relatives/known persons may be used for this purpose. Further, in case if the customer does not have any alternate mobile number to give for this purpose, then the mobile number of POS registered with the Licensee may be used.

h. The POS shall provide a declaration about the capturing of the live photograph of customer and the original POI/POA documents and/or its registered mobile number used for customer signature. For this purpose, the POS shall be verified with One Time Password (OTP) which will be sent to his mobile number registered with the Licensee. Upon successful OTP validation, it shall be treated as POS signature on the declaration.

i. Subsequent to all these activities, the application shall give information about the completion of the process and submission of activation request to activation officer of the Licensee, and also generate the transaction-id/reference-id number of the process. POS shall intimate the details regarding transaction-id/reference-id number to customer for future reference.

J. The authorized representative of the Licensee shall check and verify that: (i) information available in the pictures of POI/POA documents is matching with the information entered by POS in CAF.

(ii) live photograph of the customer matches with the photo available in the POI/POA documents.

(iii) All of the necessary details in CAF including mandatory fields are filled properly.

k. On successful verification by authorized representative of the Licensee, the SIM card shall be activated and tele-verification as per the prevailing guidelines shall be done before final activation of the services. However, if the customer has given his own alternate mobile number, then tele-verification through the use of 5-digit OTP pin shall be done for activation of final services.

4. Only two mobile connections shall be provided per day per POI/POA document to a customer by a Licensee using the above mentioned alternate digital KYC process. However, in case more than one connection is issued, the entire process as mentioned above shall be repeated for issuing each connection.

5. The above mentioned digital KYC process is an alternative process to the existing process of issuance of mobile connections to subscribers and shall also be applicable for outstation and foreign customers. The additional safeguards in prevailing guidelines in respect of outstation and foreign customers shall also be followed in the above mentioned digital KYC process.

6. The proof of concept of the above mentioned alternate digital KYC process is to be done at two locations (rural & urban) by each Licensee. As on date, following Licensees have ensured their readiness to conduct POC and offered location of POC as mentioned below:

Name of Licensee Location 1 (urban) Location 2 (rural)
Bharti Airtel Limited Delhi Meerut
BSNL Hyderabad, Telangana Vikarabad, Telangana
MTNL Mumbai Delhi (as no rural location available for MTNL)
Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited RCP, Ghansoli, Navi Mumbai Ganesh Nagar, Chichpada, Aeroli,Navi Mumbai
Tata Teleservices Limited Kamal, Haryana Assandh (Kamal District), Haryana
Vodafone Idea Limited Delhi Baramati, Pune District

7. Based on the POC results, further directions for any change in the process, if any, will be issued on the subject.

8. The existing instructions in general and particularly those issued vide letter No. 800- 09/20 I 0-V AS dated 09th August 2012 and all other instructions shall remain the same for issuing of mobile connections to new subscribers.

9. With regard to non-acceptability of Aadhaar/e-Aadhaar as POIIPOA documents in J&K, Assam and North East LSAs, it is clarified that at present there is no change in instructions dated 14.01.2011.

The Secretary(Exp.),
Ministry of Finance,
Department of Expenditure,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub: Cases of promotion taking place in the pre-revised pay structure between 01.01.2006 and the date of notification of RS(RP)Rules, 2008 and the subsequent merger of the pre-revised pay scales of the promotional and feeder posts in a common grade – Fixation of Pay – Reg.

Ref.: MoF(Deptt. of Exp.)’s OM No.7/14/2010-E.III(A) dated 05.07.2010 and OM No.F-2-1/2015-E.III (A) dated 16.10.2015

Kindly call for my earlier letter of even number dated 18th January, 2018(copy enclosed), through which your kind attention was drawn towards MoF(Deptt. of Exp.)’s OM No.-F-2-1/2015-E.III(A) dated 16.10.2015, whereby it was decided that, in cases where promotion took place in the pre-revised pay structure during the period between 01.01.2006 and the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rule, 2008 and subsequently promotional grade merged with the feeder grade consequent upon promulgation of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, the benefit of pay fixation shall be allowed under Rule-13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008.

In this connection, it is stated that, some of the government employees, who have got promotion/financial upgradation between 01.01.2006 and date of notification of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, exercised their option to switch over to 6th CPC from the date of such promotion/financial upgradation, instead of 01.01.2006 as per option provided vide Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM supra dated 05.07.2010, as the same was more beneficial to them at that time. In this connection, it is pertinent to mention here that, initially they opted to switch over to revised pay structure w.e.f 01.01.2006 prior to issuance of OM dated 05.07.2010. As they were not aware with the fact that any such benefit of pay fixation under Rule-13 would be extended in future as has been provided vide Deptt of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015, then they would not have exercised their option to switch over to CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 w.e.f. from their respective dates promotion/ financial upgradation, as per the option provided vide Deptt of Expenditure’s OM dated 05.07.2010.

Further, as per instruction of Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015, the benefit of pay fixation is being allowed under Rule-13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 in those cases where promotional/financial upgradation took place in the pre-revised pay structure between 01.01.2006 and the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rule, 2008.

However, benefit of pay fixation allowed under Rule-13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, as the provision of Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015, is not being extended to those employee who have opted to switched over to the Railway Servant(RP) Rules, 2008, with effect from the date of promotional/financial upgradation instead of 01.01.2006, by exercising the option made available vide Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 05.07.2010 (as mentioned in para 2 above), although fulfilling other conditions for getting the benefit of fixation as per the instructions contained in Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015.

It has also come to our knowledge that, some of the Railways have made a reference on this issue, seeking clarification regarding extending the benefit of the above-mentioned fixation to these employees after providing opportunity for re-option to switched over to the RS(RP) 2008 (or CCS(RP)Rule, 2008) w.e.f. 01.01.2006 instead of any subsequent date opted earlier. It is also understood that, Railway Board (Ministry of Railways) has referred this clarification to the Deptt. of Expenditure(Ministry of Finance).

Earlier, in similar cases, whenever Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM brings about a material change in the basis for exercise of option to come over to revised pay structure/unforeseen developments and change of rule in terms of the CCS(Revised Pay) Rules, opportunity to revise their option to come over to revised pay structure has always been given(as it was given through Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 03.11.2013).

Also, it is also is heard that, DoPT is agreed that, re-fixation of pay for merged post under Rule-13 of CCS(RP) Rules-2008, on the basis of Department of Expenditure’s OM No.-F-2-1/2015-E.III(A) dated-16.10.2015, were unforeseen developments/change of rule. This brings a material change in the basis for exercise of option to come over to the revised pay structure.

Hence, it is very clear that, Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015, brings a material change in the basis for exercise of option to come over to revised pay structure, unforeseen developments and change of rule in terms of the Railway Services(Revised Pay) Rules, 2008. Hence, it is demanded that, opportunity to revise their option to come over to revised pay structure, under the rule of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, w.e.f. 01.01.2006, may be given to those employees who are covered under the said letter dated 16.10.2015, as it is more beneficial for them as now.

In view of the above, it is requested that, necessary clarifications in this regard may kindly be communicated to all the Ministries/Departments of the Government of India, so that, aggrieved staff can get an opportunity to re-exercise their option, under Rule-6 of the CCS(RP) Rule, 2008, to switch over to CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, w.e.f. 01.01.2006, and get benefit of pay fixation provided vide Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015, so as to avoid financial loss to the affected staff.

Sincerely Yours,
