Speedy implementation of GDS Committee recommendations and related matters

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

ALL INDIA GRAMIN DAK SEVAKS UNION (AIGDSU)
(Central Head Quarter)
First Floor, Post Office Building, Padamnagar, Delhi 110007

President: M. Rajangam
General Secretary S.S. Mahadevaiah

No.GDS Committee/Agit/2018

Date: 19.04.2018

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 The old policies of the British regime such as cheap labour and exploitation are outdated in the present situation and it is high time that decisions are at the appropriate levels in democratic norms.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,
S/d,
S.S.MAHADEVAIAH
General Secretary

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:

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.

Cadre Restructuring of Group ‘C’ employees in Department of Posts

Cadre Restructuring of Group ‘C’ employees in Department of Posts

No.25-04/2012-PE-I (Vol.II)

Government of lndia
Ministry of Communications
Department of Posts
(PE-I Section)
Dak Bhawan, Sansad Marg,
New Delhi – 110001

Dated: 10th November, 2017

To,

All Heads of Circles,

Subject: Cadre Restructuring of Group ‘C’ employees in Department of Posts.

Sir/Madam,

The Cadre Restructuring Order of Group ‘C’ employees was issued vide this office letter of even number dated 27.05.2016. Later on, some Circles requested for further clarification, which were issued vide this office letter of even number dated 11.11.2016. However, Circles still faced with problems while implementing the orders.

2. Issues like norms for allotment of number of LSG posts, instructions for identification of surplus LSG posts other than C and B class POs, identification of HSG-I (NFG) posts, divisionalisation of LSG Cadre, relaxation of minimum qualifying service for promotion to HSG-II and HSG-I and date of effect of the orders etc. needed further clarification.

3. Therefore, on representation of various Staff Unions to the Secretary (Posts) regarding the issues arising out of implementation of Cadre Restructuring, a Committee was constituted vide Office Order of even number dated 09.06.2017, under the Chairmanship of Sh. Charles Lobo, CPMG Karnataka Circle and DDG (Estt), PMG (M&BD), Chennai and PMG, Pune Region as its members to examine all such issues. The Committee after thorough consultation, including one with the staff representatives, submitted its report on 22.09.2017.

4. The recommendations of the Committee, as accepted by the Competent Authority, are as under:

4.1 Uniform Guidelines for identifying the surplus LSG posts other than Single Handed and Double Handed (C and B Class) Post Offices:

(i) Treasurer posts should not be identified for upgradation as Treasurer posts are PA posts with special cash handling allowance.

(ii) The posts of System Administrator, Marketing Executive, DO (PLI) etc. are not cadre specific posts. Therefore, any suitable official can be deployed against these posts.

(iii) As per the Recruitment Rules, the PAs of Foreign Posts are recruited separately and trained for Foreign Post. But on promotion to LSG they are transferable to other LSG posts on postal side and vice versa. Hence extending the benefit of cadre restructuring to officials of Foreign Post in LSG and above cadres is in order as far as foreign post is concerned. Only Mumbai Foreign Post is treated as separate Foreign Post unit.

(iv) The present cadre restructuring order is not applicable to RLO. Hence RLO staff should not be included in cadre restructuring.

(v) After upgrading C and 8 class SPM posts to LSG remaining LSG posts allotted to the Circle can be utilized as per functional requirement. The officials occupying these restructured LSG posts will have either or both supervisory and operative responsibilities as per allocation ofwork by competent authority.

(vi) The SPMs posts of C and B class post offices are upgraded to LSG without following the LSG norm of 5:1. Therefore, it is not practicable to prescribe the norm for other restructured LSG posts. Number of posts to be created in each office will be as per functional requirement.

(vii) Accountants are Postal Assistants only who have passed the PO & RMS Accountants examination. They are eligible for promotion as per Recruitment Rules. Norm based LSG accountants posts can be upgraded to HSG II within the number of posts allotted to the circle.

(viii) The post of Accountant in Divisional Office can be upgraded to LSG. If there is more than one post of Accountant in HPOs, some may be upgraded to LSG while leaving some others for time scale Accountants.

(ix) More Posts may be identified in bigger offices like HPOs and MDGs. It is not possible to specify the number of posts as the staff strength and functional requirements vary from office to office. Thereafter PM Grade-III/HSG I pre restructured HPOs may be given preference for creation of posts. PM Grade II/HSG II HPOs, PM Grade III/HSG I MDG, PM Grade II/ HSG II SO/MDG, (all pre restructured) may be preferred for creation of posts in that order based on functional requirement. Circles should ensure that the posts are not disproportionately concentrated in a few offices/cities.

(x) In charge CPC, Foreign post (except Mumbai Foreign Post), PSD and CSD or other offices can be considered for upgradation of posts to LSG.

(xi) If Circles are left with surplus LSG posts, then limited number of posts in Divisional Office and important delivery offices may be identified for upgradation.

(xii) All the posts of SPMs in B and C class offices should be upgraded to LSG and all LSG norm based and A class offices should be upgraded to HSG II as a result of the implementation of the orders.

4.2 Identification of NFG posts in HSG I: Only 10 percent of HSG I posts i.e. 235 posts have been approved for NFG scale. Therefore it is not possible to promote all HSG I officials who are completing 2 years of service in HSG I. Although there is need to identify these posts for promotion from HSG l, in order to avoid inconvenience to staff in the initial stage and purely as a temporary measure, the officials can be given NFG on the basis of seniority wherever they are posted in HSG l by upgrading the HSG I post to NFG and simultaneously downgrading the NFC position to HSG-I elsewhere. In due course of time the posts need to be identified.

4.3 LSG Cadre: The Committee examined the issue of Divisionalization of LSG Cadre. The Committee observed that there are some mofussil Divisions which have more B and C class offices now upgraded to LSG but are having very less HSG II and HSG I offices. On the other hand there will be city Divisions where the number of B and C class post offices now upgraded to LSG are very less. Divisionalization will provide less opportunity for staff of these divisions to get LSG promotion and in turn affect their HSG promotions. The Divisionalization will create promotional disparity between employees in different Divisions. Therefore, the Committee’s recommendation not to Divisionalize LSG cadre has been accepted. It will remain a circle cadre. However, for better management of transfer and postings and to minimize inconvenience to the staff, Circle would allot officials to Regions for further allotment to Divisions, which in turn shall issue the posting orders in case. of the LSG officials and rotational transfer orders thereafter till such time that they remain allotted to that Division by the Region. At any time the Circle or Region may allot these LSG officials to any other Region or Division respectively.

4.4 Revision of Leave Reserve (LR) strength consequent upon upgradation to LSG. It has been observed that consequent on cadre restructuring the LR strength would be considerably reduced. The Committee observed that the postmaster in restructured LSG grade working in B and C class offices have to do operative work. Similarly restructured LSG PAs in other post offices have to do operative/supervisory work. Therefore, the Committee’s recommendation that considering the PA strength and the restructured LSG strength for calculation of LR strength will be in order, has been accepted.

4.5 Date of Effect of the Orders and completion of restructuring: For the sake of uniformity, the promotion will be effective from the date of issue of the original order dated 27.05.2016 as per existing instructions on the subject. It will be applicable to all eligible officials including those who were in service but now retired.

5. The rationalization of posts, as recommended by the Committee and accepted by the Competent Authority, is attached as Annexure-I.

6. In view of the above, all the Circles are requested to take immediate necessary action to implement the Cadre Restructuring of Group ‘C’ employees, keeping in view the above instructions without any further delay. All attempts should be made to complete the exercise of conducting DPCs by 31.12.2017 and the whole exercise, including transfer/posting Orders, must be completed by 31.01.2018.

Yours faithfully

NFPE: GDS Committee Report still pending for approval

POST OFFICE SMALL SAVINGS SCHEMES

UNDER HEAVY ATTACK

GDS MEMBERSHIP VERIFICATION PROCESS STOPPED.

IMPLEMENTATION OF GDS COMMITTEE REPORT DELAYED FOR ONE YEAR, STILL PENDING WITH FINANCE MINISTRY.

HOLD PROTEST DEMONSTRATIONS AT ALL CENTRES AND IN FRONT OF ALL OFFICES ON 23.10.2017.

FEDERAL SECRETARIAT WILL MEET AND DECLARE FURTHER COURSE OF ACTION.

Dear Comrades,

Government has unleashed a sudden and most damaging attack on Post office Small Savings Schemes. Notifications are already issued permitting all Nationalised Banks and three Private Banks ( ICICI Bank , AXIS Bank and HDFC Bank) to accept deposits for all Small Savings Schemes viz ; Recurring Deposit (RD) , Time Deposits (TD) , Monthly Income Scheme (MIS) Senior Citizen Savings Scheme (SCSS) , Sukanya Samridhi Account (SSA) , Kisan Vikas Patra (KVP) and National Savings Certificate (NSC VIII issue) with effect from 10th October 2017.

This is a great blow to the Post office Small Savings Schemes and will be a threat to the job security of Postal Employees and also MPKBY /SAS Agents. About 40% of the Revenue and about 50% of the workload of Post office depends on the Post office Small Savings Schemes. Outsourcing of POSSS work to Banks will result in steady fall in Revenue and Workload of Postal Department.

GDS Committee Report , though submitted to Govt on 24th November 2016 , is still pending with Finance Ministry for approval. GDS Membership verification process has been suddenly stopped by the Government.

Overall situation in Postal Department is worsening day by day and resentment of the Employees is mounting.

NFPE CHQ views the above situation with grave concern and calls upon the entirety of Postal and RMS employees including GDS and Casual labourers to conduct mass protest demonstrations at all Centres and in front of all offices on 23rdOCTOBER 2017.

Urgent meeting of NFPE Federal Secretariat to be held shortly will announce further course of action.

 

Yours fraternally,

S/d,
R.N.PARASHAR

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

With regards.
