It is to bring to your kind notice that Productivity linked bonus is required to be paid before Durga Puja. It is therefore requested to kindly cause action for making payment of bonus before Durga Puja.

It is also worth mentioning that an arbitrary cap of 60 days has been fixed for payment of PLB.

Therefore kindly take necessary action to remove this cap and arrange to make payment of bonus which comes out real.

With regards.

Dated : 19th June,2017

To
The Secretary,
Department of Posts,

New Delhi-110 001

SUB : CALL OF AGITATIONAL PROGRAMMES BY NFPE
Ref : Directorate letter No.08-12/2017-SR dated 16th June-2017.

While acknowledging the receipt of your letter cited above I , on behalf of NFPE and all its affiliated Unions/Associations , like to make it clear that we , as a responsible organisation , always stand for negotiated settlement and want to avoid confrontation with the administration. But we regret to note that in spite of our positive approach and patiently waiting for two years for redressal of our genuine grievances , things are not moving at Directorate level and same is the position with many circles also. For example :-

(1) No direct recruitment to fill up outside quota vacancies has taken place for the last three years. Examinations are being conducted, but final list of selected candidates are not published. 7th CPC has stated that there are 60000 vacancies remaining unfilled in Postal department as on 31.12.2015. Now the figure will be more than one lakh. Ahout 40% posts are lying vacant in each division and employees are suffering like anything. Are the employees responsible for this state of affairs? As DOP&T has repeatedly made it clear that there is no ban on filling up of vacant posts, who is responsible for three years delay in filling up of posts ?

(2) GDS Committee Report is submitted to Government on 24th November 2016. Even after seven months the recommendations are still under process. Approval of Communications Minister , Ministry of Personnel , Ministry of Law , Ministry of Finance , Cabinet approval – all these stages are pending . Kamalesh Chandra Committee took 18 months only for submitting the report , but it seems that Postal board will take two years for implementing the recommendations. Are the employees responsible for this unjustified delay ?

(3) Re-verification of membership of Departmental employees was completed in the year 2015. Even after two years results are not published. GDS re-verification of membership, it was due in 2015. Process of calling for applications from unions/associations completed. After that nothing is moving. What prevents the Postal Board from conducting membership verification of GDS and also declaring the result of departmental employees? Are we responsible for the two years delay?

(4) Regarding Cadre restructuring of Postal Group -C, we submitted a detailed memorandum requesting some modification’s and also uniform guidelines to all circles etc . Then Secretary, Department of Posts assured us that pending decision on our memorandum, the Cadre restructuring orders will be kept in abeyance. But the Directorate went ahead with unilateral implementation in certain circles putting a large section of Group-C employees to untold miseries. What prevented the department in honouring the assurance given by Secretary, Department of Posts?

(5) Event though repeated assurances were given that Cadre-restructuring proposal of left out categories will be implemented shortly , now almost four years are over after signing the Cadre-restructuring agreement between Postal Board and Staff side. Are we responsible for this unpardonable delay?

(6) Orders for revision of wages of casual labourers with effect from 01.01.2006 was issued by Directorate in January 2015 and again orders for revision of wages from 01.01.2016 was also issued. But till this date the Directorate orders are not implemented in Tamilnadu Circle. What prevents the Directorate to make the CPMG Tamilnadu Circle to implement Directorate orders ? Is CPMG Tamilnadu circle superior to Secretary , Department of Posts ?

(7) There are many other issues also which remains unsettled for years together due to the indifferent attitude of the Postal Board.

In short, we feel that things are not moving at Directorate level and there is paralysis in file movement and decision making. We want things to move and staff grievances settled in a time -bound manner. Instead of assurances, we want result-oriented action

I once again assure you that we are ready to call- off the proposed agitational programmes , provided the department come forward for a satisfactory , result-oriented negotiated settlement on all the demands raised by us in our memorandum .

Yours Faithfully,

R.N.PARASHAR
Secretary General

Transaction will appear in the Report No.19 i.e Common Counter Wise Transactions Report-Inter Branch of the office where transaction is initiated Amount of the transaction would also appear in Consolidation of the same office. No transaction would appear in the office where account/certificate stands. Extra care should be taken at the time of such transactions. In respect of withdrawal from savings Account for more than for Rs. 50,000.’- , it should be allowed only if signatures are available in the system and are tallied In respect of accepting deposits. no extra care is required to be taken. As regards, payment of maturity value of MIS/RD/SCSS/TD/PPF/Certificates procedure given in the relevant scenario should be followed.

 

Non Financial transaction like modification in account or ClF can be made only the office where account stands and it should be supported by documentary proof. In case of change in name or photograph or address, fresh KYC Form (in duplicate) has to be obtained with documents and one copy of KYC Form has to be sent to CPC for scanning of fresh photograph or signature. Please ensure that all Financial or Non Financial Transactions should be verified by Supervisor/89M at the same office when initiated by PA.

 

14. Scenario:- A customer wants to do re-investment of matured amount in CBS post office. 

In case. depositor wants re-investment from one scheme’s maturity value to another scheme. customer should be asked if he/she has a Savings Account in any CBS Post Office. If yes, then signature in that account available in the system should be tallied with the signature on the Closure Form or Certificate & if not, customer should be asked to open new savings account under the same CIF (fresh KYC documents and Form should be taken if account/certificate matured belong to pre-migration period). Customer should write on the receipt side of the Account Closure Form or Certificate, the amount to be re-invested. name of scheme and Savings Account number under his/her signatures. In case of new AOF presented for re-investment. under the tiled “Mode of Deposit”. He/she has to write savings account number. In such a case. no separate withdrawal form is required to be given and this transaction has to be treated as non-cash transaction for the purpose of eligibility of commission to agents (if AOF contains detail of agent). Once Postmaster/Sub Postmaster is sure about genuineness of the depositor (from signatures/photograph/any other identification). total maturity value+interest should be credited into that Savings Account and then amount to be re-invested should be debited/withdrawn from this savings account and credited/deposited in the concerned new account while funding.

 

No re-investment should be accepted if customer does not have a savings account in a CBS Post Office or customer is not ready to open new savings account. in such a case, payment should be made by Postmaster Cheque only.

Pension payment for the month of March 2015 through POSB functioning under CBS: NFPE writes to DoP

Pension payment for the month of March 2015 through POSB functioning under CBS: NFPE writes to DoP

No. PF-Misc/2015

Dated 21th March, 2015

To

The Secretary
Department of Posts
Government of India
Dak Bhawn
New Delhi – 110001

Sub: Pension payment for the month of March 2015 through POSB functioning under CBS – regarding.

Madam,

Your kind attention is invited to the fact that last year on 1st April, 2014 no payment of pension could be disbursed through POSB on the request of Infosys due to some technical problems in the CBS. In fact all SB transactions were suspended on that day. Many pensioners were made to return home empty handed without drawing their pension on that day.

This year 1st April is followed by two holidays on 2nd and 3rd April for Mahavir jayanthi and Good Friday and therefore any recurrence of previous problem on 1st April will cause heavy hardships on pensioners as they could not draw their pension until 4th April, 2015.

It is therefore requested to kindly intervene in the matter to prevent any such recurrence this year and if suspension of all SB transactions on 1st April is unavoidable, then necessary instructions may please be issued to all concerned for effecting payment of pension on 31st March, 2015 itself irrespective of the fact that no payment or pension payment is normally done on the closing day of the financial year.

Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,

(R.N. Parashar)
Secretary General

ANSWER

THE MINISTER OF COMMUNICATIONS AND INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY & LAW AND JUSTICE (SHRI RAVI SHANKAR PRASAD)

(a) No, Madam, They are not eligible.

(b) Gramin Dak Sevaks are not regular govt. employees. They are part time workers and are governed by a separate set of Conduct and Engagement Rules. They do not form part of the regular civil service. They are engaged for only 3-5 hours daily work. It is mandatory for them to have an independent source of livelihood before being engaged as Gramin Dak Sewak. Hon’ble Supreme Court in the case of Union of India and Others vs. Kameshwar Prasad 1998 SCC (L&S) page 447 held that P&T Extra Departmental Agent (C&S) Rules, 1964 are a complete code governing service, conduct and disciplinary proceedings against Extra Departmental Agents [now called Gramin Dak Sevaks]. On discharge from service on attaining the age of 65 years or on death, Gramin Dak Sevaks [GDS] are paid Ex-Gratia Gratuity and Severance Amount as approved for them by the Cabinet.

The Ex-gratia Gratuity is paid at the rate of half months basic Time Related Continuity Allowance [TRCA] drawn immediately before discharge of service for each completed year of service subject to a maximum of Rs. 60000 or 16.5 months basic TRCA last drawn whichever is less. The minimum service prescribed for this is 10 years. In addition, Severance Amount is paid at the rate of Rs. 1500 for every completed year of service subject to a maximum of Rs. 60000. The Government has already introduced Service Discharge Benefit Scheme in lieu of severance amount scheme effective from 01.04.2011 for the benefit of Gramin Dak Sevaks on the basis of the New Pension Scheme (NPS), specifically NPS Lite Scheme launched by the Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA). Under this scheme, the Government as well as Gramin Dak Sevaks concerned now contributes @ Rs. 200/- per month.

* CADRE RESTRUCTURING AGREEMENT SIGNED *

 

At last after several round of protracted negotiations with the administration, JCM Staff side, Departmental council ( NFPE & FNPO) has signed the cadre restructuring proposal. The staff side has tried to the best of its ability to make maximum improvement in the proposal. In spite of our hard bargaining we could not achieve 100 percent success. Our demand for separate higher pay scale for PO& RMS Accountants, Creation of separate cadre for System Administrators or grant of special pay/allowance, bringing MTS also under cadre restructuring etc is not accepted by the administration. Regarding Postmaster Cadre after much bargaining, it is agreed to examine our claim for higher pay scale after the present proposal is approved by the government.
As Govt has already appointed 7th CPC and the Pay Commission has already published the questionnaire, any further delay in completing the cadre restructuring will adversely affect the interest of Postal employees. We will take up the remaining issues, which are not agreed by the administration in the cadre restructuring committee with the 7thCPC in our memorandum and make one more effort to get a favourable recommendation.

 

Taking into consideration all the above aspects and also keeping in mind the larger interest of the employees, we have decided to sign the agreement

Copy of the agreement is published below (**Text of agreement reproduced  – see above**)

The Salient features of the agreement are as follows :

1. Number of LSG posts will increase from 8 % to 22 %

2. Number of HSG II posts will increase from 2 % to 12 %

3. Number of HSG I posts will increase from 1.5 % to 4 %

4. After completion of 2 years in HSG I the official will be promoted to 4800 GP (Non-functional Basis)

5. The above proposal will be applicable to RMS, Circle Office and SBCO in the same ratio

6. Postman/Mail guard will get the same ratio of promotion.

The present proposal is to be approved by Postal Board, DoPT & Finance Ministry. We will make all out effort to get the proposal implemented at an early date.
