Heads of Circles/Regional Heads/Divisional Heads/Unit Heads therefore, should build up a pool of trained officials to handle these new products and technology related jobs so that manpower is readily available to replace the officials presently working on completion of tenure and to ensure achievement of desired objectives. Proper succession planning will have to be made by the HOCs/Regional/Divisional/Unit Heads well in time. The Department has already taken necessary steps to train its manpower for successful implementation of IT Project. It should not be difficult to replace such officials on completion of tenure. As such, the competent authority should ensure transfer of such staff on completion of post tenure/station tenure.

xx. It may be ensured that women employees are posted/transferred to an office only after ensuring that basic and essential amenities for women as required are available there.

6. Provisions of these guidelines are in addition to the provisions of Postal Manual Volume IV and therefore provisions of Postal Manual Volume IV which are not incorporated here shall continue to prevail. In case of conflict between any provision of the Postal Manual Volume IV and these guidelines, relevant provision of these guidelines shall prevail and the provision of the Postal Manual shall be deemed to be modified.

7.Bringing of direct or indirect political or other outside influence regarding posting/transfer would attract the provisions of Rule 20 of CCS (Conduct) Rules, 1964, as per which an appropriate disciplinary action may be initiated against the official/officer.

Implementation of Kamalesh Chandra Report on Gramin Dak Sevaks of the Department of Posts

AIGDSU – Implementation of Kamalesh Chandra Report on Gramin Dak Sevaks of the Department of Posts

Letter No. GDS/CHQ/67/01/2018

Date 20-06-2018

To
Sri Narendra Modi
Hon’ble Prime Minister
Government of India
New Delhi – 110001

Respected Sir,

Subject : Implementation of Kamalesh Chandra Report on Gramin Dak Sevaks of the Department of Posts.

We on behalf of 2.60 lakh Gramin Dak Sevaks of India venture to approach your benign self with high hopes of causing activisation of the process. We are obliged to the union cabinet for approving the implementation of report. But we are sorry to submit that there is avoidable delay on the Part of the officials at Postal Directorate level In issuing orders. Even after two weeks of the cabinet decision not a single order has been processed and even the movement of the file illudes us. Probably, this is aimed at creating trust deficit.

We approach your high self, with all our respect, to cause the process of issuing orders to move a bit faster.

With profound regards,

Yours faithfully,
S/d,
(S.S. Mahadevaiah)
General Secretary

Cabinet approves Revision in the wage structure and allowances of Gramin Dak Sevaks (GDS) of the Department of Posts

Cabinet approves Revision in the wage structure and allowances of Gramin Dak Sevaks (GDS) of the Department of Posts (1/2)

Cabinet Decision

June 06, 2018

Cabinet approves Revision in the wage structure and allowances of Gramin Dak Sevaks (GDS) of the Department of Posts
  • The revision in the wage structure would entail an estimated expenditure of Rs 1257.75 crore (Non-recurring expenditure – Rs 860.95 crore and Recurring expenditure of Rs.396.80 crare) during 2018-19. 3.07 lakh Gramin Dak Sevaks will be benefitted by this wage revision.

Details:

  • Time Related Continuity allowance (TRCA) structure and slabs have been rationalised. The total GDSs have been brought under two categories viz. Branch Postmasters (BPMs) and other thanBranch Postmasters namely Assistant Branch Postmaster (ABPMs).
  • The present 11 TRCA slabs will be merged into only three TRCA Slabs with two levels each for BPMs and other than BPMs.
  • Introduction of new Time Related Continuity Allowance (TRCA) will be as below:
Minimum TRCA of two types of proposed categories of GDSs as per working hours / levels
S.No. Category Minimum TRCA for 4 Hours/level 1 Minimum TRCA for 5 Hours/level 2
1 BPM Rs.12000/- Rs.14500/-
2 ABPM/Dak Sevaks Rs.10000/- Rs.12000/-

Cabinet approves Revision in the wage structure and allowances of Gramin Dak Sevaks (GDS) of the Department of Posts (2/2)

  • It is decided to continue the calculation of the ex-gratia bonus by applying the calculation ceiling of Rs.7000 as basic TRCA + DA till such time a new scheme is devised.
  • Arrears for the period 1.1.2016 to the date of implementation will be paid by increasing the basic TRCA drawn during the period by a factor of 2.57. The arrears will be paid in one instalment.
  • Annual increase at the rate of 3% and the same may be given on 1st January or 1st July of every year as the case may be based on the one time written request of GDSs.
  • Dearness Allowance will continue to be paid as a separate component, and also revised from time to time whenever it is revised for Central Government Servants.
  • A new Riskand hardship Allowance has been introduced. Other allowances Viz. Office maintenance allowance, Combined duty allowance, Cash conveyance charges, Cycle maintenance allowance, Boat allowance and Fixed Stationery Charges have been revised.

Implementation strategy and targets:

The revision would result in improving the wages, allowances and discharge benefits of Gramin Dak Sevaks resulting in providing efficient & cost-effective basic postal facilities in the rural area. The proposed increased emoluments will enable him to improve his socio-economic standing.

Impact:

The Branch Post Offices are the fulcrum for provision of Communications and financial services in the village and are located in remote areas. The Post Master has to deal with large sums while making payments to customers; hence accountability is already built into his work. The enhanced remuneration will increase the sense of responsibility. Moreover, with the roll out of the India Post Payment Bank (IPPB), the CDS network is expected to play a key role in the process of financial inclusion of the rural population.

Background:

The Extra Departmental system in the Department of Posts was established more than150 years ago to provide basic, economical and efficient postal services in the rural areas where there was no justification for engaging full time regular employees. One Lakh Twenty-Nine Thousand Three Hundred forty-six (1,29,346) Extra-departmental Branch post offices are primarily manned by Gramin Dak Sevak Branch Postmasters. In addition, Gramin Dak Sevaks other than Branch Postmasters are also working in Branch, Sub and Head Post offices. The main features of the engagement of Gramin Dak Sevaks are that they work for part time ranging from 3 to 5 hours per day and supplement their income from other vocations so as to have adequate means of livelihood for themselves and their families. They remain in service up to the age of 65 years.

CLASS ORIENTED MILITANT STRUGGLE OF THREE LAKHS GRAMIN DAK SEVAKS

CLASS ORIENTED MILITANT STRUGGLE OF THREE LAKHS GRAMIN DAK SEVAKS

“CHANGE THE POLICY OR WE SHALL CHANGE THE GOVERNMENT”

M.Krishnan
Secretary General, Confederation
Ex-Secretary General, NFPE

The unprecedented strike of three lakhs Gramin Dak Sevaks of Postal department will enter the 14th day on Monday. Functioning of  rural postal services has come to a grinding halt. Out of 1,55,000 Post offices, 1,29,500 rural Post offices are completely shut down. GDS are not demanding to give them the “Moon” from the sky. They are demanding their legitimate wage revision. If 32 lakhs departmental employees wage revision can be implemented within eight months after submission of Seventh CPC report, why the unjustified delay of eighteen months for implementation of wage revision of only three lakhs low-paid GDS employees? Why lamenting about the deficit of the department only when GDS wage revision comes? Are GDS responsible for the deficit? No, not at all.

Postal “Gods” and Central Government are in deep slumber for eighteen months, when poor GDs are waiting..waiting..and waiting. The strike is a natural outburst of pentup discontentment and anger of the marginalized section after desperately waiting for long. Then suddenly the sleeping “Gods” wokeup. Appeal after appeal started pouring in all languages just like distributing chocolates to lure children. But 96% of GDS stood united and continued their struggle. They declared they will not surrender their self-respect and prestige, even if they and their families are made to starve or die by prolonging the strike.

They know, many had lost their lives and many sacrificed before our country got freedom. Mahatmaji had told the Britishers “you can kill me, but you can not make me surrender”.

They know, many had lost their lives and many sacrificed before the most dreaded “apartheid” system is legally banned and abolished in South Africa. Nelson Mandela has taught them “never to give up or surrender”.

They know, many had lost their lives and many sacrificed before the “slave system” is legally abolished in United States. Martin Luther King had told them “I have a dream” and his dream had come true later.

GDS system is a “beggar system”and nothing but slavery and bonded labour. This heroic struggle of GDS will definitely mark the beginning of the end of this slave system which is a “black mark in the face of Indian democracy”. Those GDS and departmental employees (though in some states only) who participated in this historic struggle for emancipation of the most down trodden section of the society will be remembered for ever in the history and their sacrifice will never go in vain.

Those Government’s supporters in the bureaucracy are propagating that GDS unions have committed a great mistake and unpardonable crime by going on an “untimely” indefinite strike, that too all the four Unions together. We have only to remind them the old saying “when a beggar come to your house, you need not give money to him if you don’t like, but please don’t unleash your dogs to bite him”.  Let the GDS fight for their own destiny. Government may allow their right or not. This struggle is not the end of history. As long as injustice and discrimination are there, strikes and protests will emerge again and again like phoenix bird from the ashes.

Now the ball is in the court of the Government and Postal Department. It is they to decide how to play. What is wrong in inviting the GDS unions for negotiation and in reaching an honourable settlement, instead of distributing pamphlet type appeals one after another? What is the mindset of the top bureaucracy of the Postal Board? Are they thinking like olden days feudal landlords and expecting the GDS Union leaders “to obey them and not to question them”. Sorry, they are thoroughly mistaken and they should understand the writings on the wall. Only mutual trust and goodwill can build confidence in the mind of striking GDS and that can only lead to an amicable settlement.

We hope that good sense will prevail upon the powers-that-be. We want to make it clear that any attempt to break or crush the strike by attempting to victimization or any other coercive methods will only complicate the situation and the entire Central Government Employees will be forced to come out to defend and protect the striking GDS at any cost.

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
