Department of Posts: Exemption for travel in airlines other than Air India

Exemption for travel in airlines other than Air India on Government Tour: Department of Posts OM.

F. No.9-1/2016-FC (Posts)
Government of India
Ministry of Communications & IT
Department of Posts
(Integrated Finance Wing)

New Delhi, the 24th August, 2017

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Exemption for travel in airlines other than Air India – reg.

Consequent upon the delegation of powers to the Financial Advisors to accord exemption for air travel in airlines other than Air India in individual cases, this office is receiving requests from the officers seeking exemption for air travel by airlines other than Air India.

While processing such proposals, it has been observed that in spite of repeated instructions issued by the Directorate vide letter no. 17-01/2015-PAP dated 28.07.2016, OM no. 9-1/2016-FA (Posts) dated 09.08.2016 and dated 28.02.2017 (Copies enclosed for ready reference), requests for seeking exemption are being submitted in the last days / hours of the proposed journey and that too with incomplete/insufficient reasons/documents in’ prescribed Performa (Revised) as required vide Directorate OM no. 9-1/2016-FA (Posts) dated 28.02.2017. This results in avoidable delay in processing such cases and higher expenditure due to the last minute booking of tickets. It is-also seen that even without obtaining approval of the competent authority, the journey by airlines other than Air India is performed and at a later stage requests seeking ex-post facto approval are submitted, violating the instructions on the subject.

In view of the above, it is once again reiterated that the requests in the revised Performa complete in all respect are submitted to JS&FA at least 7 working, days in advance from date of travel so that adequate time is made available for processing in Integrated Finance Wing. It may also be noted that non-receipt of approval by the stipulated date does not entitle one to claim relaxation as a matter of right.

This issue with the approval of Competent Authority.

POSTAL CASUAL LABOURERS STRUGGLE IN TAMILNADU STRIKE DECLARED BY NFPE CIRCLE CO-ORDINATING COMMITTEE FAST IN FRONT OF CPMG OFFICE

POSTAL CASUAL LABOURERS STRUGGLE IN TAMILNADU

STRIKE DECLARED BY NFPE CIRCLE CO-ORDINATING COMMITTEE

FAST IN FRONT OF CPMG OFFICE CALLED OFF

MOST INSPIRING STRUGGLE IN THE HISTORY OF CASUAL LABOURERS.

            As per the decision taken by the Central Working Committee of All India Postal Casual , Partime , Contingent and Contract Workers Federation , the fast infront of Chief PMG office Chennai commenced on 27th June 2017 demanding revision of wages of Casual Labourers with effect from 01.01.2006 and 01.01.2016 as per orders issued by Postal Directorate. Along with leaders of Casual Labour Federation , leaders of NFPE Circle Co-ordinating Committee (CCC) , Confederation State Committee also joined the programme extending full support and solidarity. The programme was organised under the leadership of NFPE CCC Tamilnadu Circle. More than 1000 casual workers participated in the struggle. Chief PMG held two round discussions with Circle Secretaries of NFPE on 27th June. CPMG took a stand that Directorate orders are not implemented in any circle and challenged our leaders to produce copies of the orders issued by Divisions in other circles. Next day morning Circle leaders produced before the Assistant Director ,  copies of orders issued and implemented in many divisions of Kerala , Andhra and Telangana including Vijayawada Region where the CPMG was working as PMG prior to his promotion as CPMG Tamilnadu. Understanding that his arguments stands demolished by NFPE Circle Unions , the CPMG , instead showing the courage to face the NFPE leaders again in the discussion table , suddenly left  Chennai (ran away !!) without intimating the leaders. It is learnt that he will not be available in Chennai for next four days.  NFPE COC held an emergent meeting and decided to declare one day strike on 13th July 2017 protesting against the negative stand of the Circle administration and demanding immediate wage revision of Casual Labourers. Accordingly 14 days legal notice for the strike was served on 28th June 2017. Entire employees of Tamilnadu Circle  (P3 , P4 , R3 , R4 , Admin , Postal Accounts , SBCO , GDS and Casual Labourers)  will go on strike for the cause of Casual Labourers declaring — “an injury to one is an injury to all” !!!. As strike is declared , NFPE CCC decided to call off the fast in front of CPMG office and the mass fast ended at 5 PM on 28th June with thundering slogans.

            The Fast was inaugurated by Com M.Durai Pandian , General Secretary , Confederation Tamilnadu state. Com: T.K.Rangarajan , MP (CPIM) and Shri R.S.Bharati , MP (DMK) addressed the programme. National leaders of Casual Labour Federation Coms: M.Krishnan (President) Y.Nagabhushanam (Working President) P.Mohan (General Secretary) D.Sivagurunathan (CHQ Treasurer) S.Balamurugan (CHQ OGS) alongwith NFPE leaders Coms: J.Ramamurthy (CHQ President P3 & CS P3 ) B.Paranthaman (President CCC NFPE) G.Kannan (Convenor CCC  NFPE) Angel Sathyanathan (Chairman , Women’s Committee) participated in the fast. Com A.G.Pasupathy , veteran leader of P&T Trade Union movement (86 years) participated on two days. Coms: K.Raghavendran (Ex-SG NFPE & GS AIPRPA) K.V.Sreedharan (Ex-GS P3) K.Regupathy ( Asst SG NFPE) A.Veeramani (AGS P3 CHQ) R.B.Suresh (CS AIPAEA) K.R.Ganesan (Circle President R3 ) Dhananjay (CS AIPEU -GDS) Santhoshkumar (President , AIPAEA CHQ) attended and addressed the gathering. Shri D.Theagarajan (SG FNPO) and Shri Kumar (FNPO & Chairman PJCA) ,Com. S. Mohan, Secretary General of Central Govt Gazetted Officers Organisation, Com. S. Venkatesan (Income Tax Employees  Federation)Leaders of AIRF,  DREU and Confederation affiliates  also addressed. 

            The inspiring struggle of the most down trodden, marginalised and poor casual labourers of Tamilnadu will be written in red letters in the history of the struggles of Postal employees.

            Red Salute to the NFPE / Confederation/ Casual Labour leaders and members who made it a historic struggle.

CALL OF AGITATIONAL PROGRAMMES BY NFPE

Dated : 19th June,2017

To
The Secretary,
Department of Posts,
Dak Bhawan.
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

Shri A. N. Nanda,

Sub: – Inordinate delay in settlement of the long pending problems faced by the Postal and RMS employees.

Sir,

For the last two years we have brought the following burning issues of the Postal and RMS employees including Gramin Dak Sevaks and Casual Labourers to the notice of the Directorate for amicable settlement. We have also discussed these cases several times with the administration in the formal meetings and informal meetings. Every time, it was assured that immediate action will be taken for early settlement of the issues raised by us. But we are sorry to state that other than repeated assurances, the things have not moved an inch forward and even now the situation is the same. As a result, most of the important issues raised by us remain unsettled and day-by-day more issues are getting accumulated. Employees at the lower level are the worst victims of this situation and their anger and discontentment is growing day-by-day. Unless immediate remedial measures are not taken to settle the issues in a time-bound manner through negotiation, the situation may go from bad to worse.

The following are the issues pending settlement at Directorate level.

1. Filling up of all vacant posts in all cadres of Department of Posts i.e. PA, SA, Postmen, Mailguard, Mailmen, Drivers and Artisans in MMS,MTS, PACO, PASBCO, Postal Accounts and GDS.

2. Implementation of positive recommendations of GDS committee Report. Grant of Civil Servant status to GDS.

3. Membership verification of GDS and declaration of result of regular employees membership verification.

4. Stop all types of harassment and victimization in the name of new schemes and technology induction and under contributory negligence factor and Trade Union victimization.

5. Payment of Revised wages and arrears to the casual, part-time, contingent employees and daily rated mazdoors as per 6th& 7th CPC and settle other issues of casual labourers.

6. Stop Privatization, Contractorization and outsourcing.

7. Implement cadre Restructuring for leftout categories i.e. RMS, MMS, PACO, PASBCO, Postmaster Cadre Postal Accounts etc. and accept the modifications suggested by Federation before implementation of cadre restructuring in Postal Group ‘C’.

8. Provision of CGHS facilities to Postal Pensioners also as recommended by 7th CPC.

9. Withdraw NPS (Contributory Pension Scheme). Guarantee 50% of last pay drawn as minimum pension.

10. Implement five days week working for operative staff in the Postal department.

As a responsible organisation, we have been extending full support and cooperation to the administration, in running the department in a most efficient manner and also for induction of high technology and increasing the revenue and productivity. But we regret to note that it has become a one-sided affair and the top level administration has failed to reciprocate the positive attitude shown by the employees.

The Federal Executive meeting of National Federation of Postal Employees which met at New Delhi on 12.05.2017 has viewed with grave concern the situation prevailing in the Department of Posts. The meeting has come to the inescapable conclusion that we can no longer be taken for granted by the administration, if the genuine and legitimate demands of the employees are not settled in a time bound manner through negotiations. The Federal Executive meeting further decided to organize following phased programme of action culminating in strike, for realization of the demands mentioned above.

Phase- I – Mass Dharna in front of all Divisional offices.
Date – 20.06.2017

Phase – II – Mass Dharna in front of all Circle/Regional offices.
Date – 12.07.2017

Phase – III – Mass dharna in front of Postal Directorate, Dak Bhawan, New Delhi.
Date – 26.07.2017

Phase IV – One day nationwide strike on 23.08.2017 (Formal notice of the strike will be served later.)

We once again like to make it clear that we want to avoid a confrontation with the Administration and earnestly hope that the Secretary, Department of Posts, shall come forward for a negotiated settlement. On the other hand, we will be left with no alternative, but to go ahead with our agitational programmes as mentioned above.

Awaiting positive response,

Yours faithfully,

(R. N. Parashar)
Secretary General

As you are aware, now the postal pensioners are not extended the facilities under CGHS.

In Kerala Postal Circle CGHS facility is extended to all postal pensioners also as per the judgment delivered by the Hon’ble High Court of Kerala, Ernakulam.

We have submitted memorandum to chairman 7th CPC also appealing to Consider out request judiciously and favourably. Fortunately, the 7th CPC has given the following favourable recommendations in its reports submitted to Government on 19.11.2015.

Para 9.5.18 (ii)

The commission recommends that remaining 33 Postal Dispensaries should be merged with CGHS. The Commission further recommends that all postal pensioners, irrespective of their participation in CGHS while in service, should be covered under CGHS after making requisite subscription.

In view of the above unambiguous recommendation of the 7th CPC and also the judgment of the Kerala High Court which already stands implemented in Kerala State, I request you to take up the case with appropriate authorities so that orders will be issued at the earliest extending the facilities of CGHS to all postal Pensioner and thereby ending the suffering of lakhs of postal pensioners.

Yours faithfully,

They have to obtain at least 60% marks in the tests in order to come out of training successfully. If any PA/ SA fails to obtain 60% marks, he/she is retained in the PTC for re-training for 2 weeks and undergoes two tests (one each week). Despite retraining, if such PA/SA still does not obtain 60% marks, suitable adverse notice is taken against him/her.

3. The matter has been revisited by the Department in consultation with the Department of Personnel”& Training (DOP&T). At the outset, it is emphasized that the tests, which the Direct Recruit PAs/SAs undergo while on training, need to be closely monitored and it should be ensured that only those PAs/SAs who obtain required marks in the tests may be declared to have satisfactorily completed the probation period and confirmed ‘in service, provided such PA/SA has also performed/acted satisfactorily during the probation period. As per the Recruitment Rules of PA/SA issued by the Department of Posts, the Direct Recruit PAS/SAs are confirmed in service by a Departmental Confirmation Committee (DCC) and pending confirmation, they remain on probation and their services are governed by CCS (Temporary Service), Rules, 1965.

4. Besides above, following points may be kept in view by the PTCs and the Circles while considering the confirmation of such Direct Recruit PAs/SAs, who are on probation:

(1) Direct Recruit PAs/SAs (on probation) who fail in the tests held in PTCs:-

(a) If any Direct Recruit PAs/SAs (on probation) is unable to clear the tests in the first attempt, he/she may be given two more chances to pass the tests. These three chances (including first chance during training) may be held/conducted within the two-year mandatory probation period. In the interregnum, such PA/SA may be posted temporarily to a Post Office/RMS office against a non-sensitive post.

(b) Before the third chance is given to a PA/SA, who has failed in two attempts, he/she may be given a written warning to the effect that his/her failure in mandatory tests does not justify his/her confirmation in the Service and that, unless he/she showed substantial improvement within a specified period and clears the test, the issue of terminating him from service will be considered.

(c) If any PA/SA is still unable to clear the Tests in three attempts within two years, the probation period in his/her case will be extended by six months during which time he/she shall have to mandatorily pass the tests. For such PAS/SAs, whose probation period has been extended by six months due to failure to pass the tests, a qualifying test will also be introduced which will be in addition to the existing tests. The modalities of such qualifying test will be prepared/finalized by the Training Division of the Postal Directorate.

(d) In case he/she passes the required tests and qualifying test and has also acted/performed satisfactorily during the entire period of probation including extension also, he/she may be declared to have successfully completed the probation period and may be confirmed in service by the DCC.

(e) If a PA/SA again fails in the tests and/or does not pass the qualifying test, the services of such temporary Direct Recruit PA/SA shall be terminated.

(II) Direct Recruit PAs/SAs (on probation) who pass the test, but their conduct/ performance is unsatisfactory:

(a) In case conduct/performance of a PA/SA is found unsatisfactory during the probation period irrespective of the fact that he/she has passed the required tests, the probation period of such PA/SA will be extended for six months in order for him/her to improve his/her conduct/performance to a satisfactory level.

(b) Such PA/SA as mentioned in (a) above may be given a written warning that unless his/her conduct/performance improves to a satisfactory level, the issue of terminating his/her services will be considered. In case his/her conduct/performance has improved to a satisfactory level during the extended probation period, he/she may be declared to have successfully completed the probation period and may be confirmed in service. If not, the services of such temporary Direct Recruit PA/SA shall be terminated.

5. The PTCs shall send reports relating to conduct/performance and passing/failing in the tests/qualifying test etc. as the case may be, in respect of each Direct Recruit PA/SA (on probation) to the Divisional Head concerned.

6. In order to ensure that termination cases are decided appropriately, the Divisional Head concerned, the Appointing Authority of PA/SA, will first issue a speaking Show Cause Notice covering reasons in detail for termination to the PA/SA concerned within 15 days after completion of extended six months’ period of probation. The said PA/SA will be given 15 days’ time to make representation, if any. Subsequently, the said Divisional Head, after carefully examining all relevant documents as also the representation, if any, of the official concerned, will decide the case of his/her termination within 45 days from the date of issue of Show Cause Notice.

7. Successful completion of training is a pre-requisite for completion of probation. Therefore, above may be included in the provisional offer of appointment issued to the candidates.

8. This may be brought to the notice of all concerned.

Yours faithfully,

(N T Paite)

Director (SPN)

Central Government staff demand early implementation of wage revision

Central Government staff demand early implementation of wage revision

Members of the Joint Council of Action South Zone which represents employees from the Railway, Defence, Postal and other Central Government departments organised a protest meeting near the Collectorate premises here on Monday.

More than 300 members of various associations, including Southern Railway Mazdoor Union (SRMU), All India Defence Employees’ Federation (AIDEF) and National Federation of Postal Employees (NFPE), participated in the protest meeting. Zonal president Raja Sridhar and divisional secretary J.M. Rafiq addressed the meeting.

The members also submitted a petition at the Collectorate along with a copy of the demands adopted by the National Convention of the Central Government Employees in December 2014.

In their 37-point charter of demands, the employees asked for the implementation of wage revision for Central government employees, which should be done once in every five years.

‘No privatisation’

They also demanded that no privatisation or Foreign Direct Investment should be allowed in railways and defence establishments, and opposed corporatisation of postal services.

Among other things, they also opposed outsourcing and privatisation of governmental functions and asked the government to withdraw the proposed move to close down printing presses.

Stating that many residential quarters needed renovation, the employees urged the Central government to carry out repairs, not to compel staff to stay in inhabitable quarters, and pay house rent allowance.
