NEWS TODAY ABOUT INDIA POST.

Adopt tech for bank a/cs, India Post told

29 Jul 2010, 0251 hrs IST,Souvik Sanyal,ET Bureau
 

NEW DELHI: An inter-ministerial committee on financial inclusion has recommended structural changes in the operation of postal savings bank (POSB) accounts as it asked the department of posts to create a wider technological platform, a move that will take its low-cost banking services to the rural unbanked population.


To counter heavy infrastructure cost that has often come in way of greater financial reach, the expert committee has asked India Post to enter into arrangements with IT vendors under public-private partnership mode to create a platform wherein it can operate a core banking solution (CBS) platform.

It proposed that the department, with its network of over 1.55 lakh branches, should deliver no-frills accounts and take them to a large section of the population that are not properly covered by banks and financial institutions. Commercial banks that host no-frill accounts on a traditional CBS find it expensive as it involves high fixed costs for software licenses and hardware.

The system for issuing and managing POSB accounts should be modernized by implementing a customised and scalable lightweight technology solution, the committee has suggested, adding that the IT provider may charge a low price per transaction to the department for its services.

"With the transaction costs getting very high for taking financial services to the rural areas, such technological collaboration with institutions which have an embedded infrastructure helps in bringing costs down," said Rana Kapoor, managing director, Yes Bank.

To further the need of greater financial inclusion, the department has been asked to open up its technological interface to micro finance institutions, mutual fund, insurance companies as well as interested telecom operators to reach out to the excluded rural and urban class.

India Post can deploy this infrastructure in elegant ways to become a market leader in micro loans to the poor for emergencies. It will be able to offer much cheaper loans to its customer by harnessing the power of technology and innovative product design.

The Thirteenth Finance Commission has proposed a budget of Rs 3,000 crore to be used for delivering an incentive of Rs 100 into the bank account of each BPL resident who enrols for a UID. "India Post, with its ubiquitous reach should actively position itself to offer a low cost lightweight bank account to anyone enrolling for a UID," the committee said in its report.

Non Payment/deliberate delay in payment of 60% arrears of TRCA to Gramin Dak Sevaks – cases of many divisions/Circles like Orissa,Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.

No. GDS/CHQ/41/8/2010                                Dated: 26th July, 2010

 

Ms. Radhika Doraiswamy,

Madam,

 

Sub;- Non Payment/deliberate delay in payment of 60% arrears of TRCA to Gramin Dak Sevaks – cases of many divisions/Circles like Orissa,Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.

 

Ref.   Directorate Letter No. 6-1/2009-PE II Dated 10.06.2010.

 

 

This Union is constrained to bring to your kind notice that the Directorate

Letter No. 6-1/2009-PE II Dated 10.06.2010 to make payment of 60% of TRCA to the Gramin Dak Sevaks by 15th July 2010 is yet to be implemented. Of course an undertaking has already been taken from the GDS for excess or short payment if any.  Still divisional heads have not paid any heed to the orders of directorate e.g., Orissa, Maharashtra, Chattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar etc.  Another plea is funds not available or in many divisions audit process is not completed. This shows negligence towards low paid Gramin Dak Sevak, so in many Circles resentment is mounting among the Gramin Dak Sevaks and the situation is likely to convert into agitation.

 

You are, therefore, requested to kindly intervene and cause needful action for early payment of 60% arrears TRCA to Gramin Dak Sevak issue necessary instructions to all concerned authorities.

 

Early action in this regard is highly appreciated

 
 Yours Sincerly,

A kind reference is invited to this union's letter of even no. dated 24/03/2010 on the above subject.

 

          This union is yet to get a reply on the above subject.

       

        Since our highest court has confirmed the CAT Madras Judgment, and Gol have taken a decision to implement these directions, may we request to you kindly issue general orders to cover similarly situated cases in Department of Posts who are fortunate to come over to regular service after serving in the Gramin Dak Sevak.

 

        Hence it is earnestly requested to make the order uniform to all similarly placed officials.

 

Early action in this regard is highly appreciated

Enhancement of conveyance charge for conveyance of excess cash by GDSBPMs/GDS -An insurance facility for retention of cash-reg.

No. GDS/CHQ/41/8/2010                                        Dated: 22nd  July, 2010

Ms.Radhika Doraiswamy,
Secretary,
Department of Posts,
Dak Bhawan,
New Delhi 110001     

Madam,

Sub:- Enhancement of conveyance charge for conveyance of excess cash by GDSBPMs/GDS -An insurance facility for retention of cash-reg.

As per the Directorate letter No. 62-90/87/CI Dated. 21-1-88, wherein the BPMs are entitled to reimbursement of the actual fares (both ways) plus 10/- in case they clear excess cash from the Branch Office to the account office provided that the excess cash is over and above of twice the line limit of remittance between the BO and AO. In other words, If the surplus cash cannot be cleared by remittance through the BO bag according to line limit, the BPM who has to clear the same to the account office for which the above mentioned actual fares plus Rs.10/- will be reimbursed to him, Now again that TRCA has been fixed by the recommendations of GDS Committee report dated 09-10-2010 conveyance charge only Rs.50/- par month which is very much meagre and required to be enhanced. This union feels that this compensation should be related with the TRCA + D.A. drawn by the Gramin Dak Sevaks. So this union suggests that the actual fares plus Rs.100/- may be fixed to be reimbursed by the GDSBPM's on such occasions.

We urge the administration to consider this subject and take necessary action to enhance the conveyance charges for the conveyance of excess cash as the actual fares incurred plus Rs.100/- at the earliest. At Present other than GDS Cadre Cash overseer/Mail overseer/ Postal Asst. are getting more allowance other than BPM/SPM, they are getting 100/- same as applicable GDS. This discrimination should be removed

                             INSURANCE FACILITY FOR RETENTION OF CASH

There are occasions where heavy cash to the tune of lakhs of rupees are retained in the custody of BPM in rural areas due to unsatisfactory collection facilities.  The risk involved is very heavy like MNREGS, Bill collation and new business schemes. And unnecessarily BPM other GDS Staff are mode to take risks.  To avoid such eventuality regular insurance of such amounts be made by making an understanding with the insurance companies. The Postal administration should see that the cash is not detained unnecessarily in BOs and arrangements be made to clear the same immediately.

          You are, therefore, requested kindly to consider this subject and take necessary action to enhance the conveyance charges for the conveyance of excess cash as the actual fares incurred plus Rs.100/- at the earliest, also to consider new insurance facility for retention of cash in case of GDS staff.
         
          Soliciting an immediate response,
                                                                                         Yours faithfully,

13th July,2010 Indefinite Strike Call given by the JCA & GDS Unions DEFERRED.

GDS/CHQ/5/1/2010                                                            Dated: 14/07/2010
 
All Circle/Divisional/Branch Secretaries,
All CWC Members All India Postal GDS Employees Union
 
13th July,2010  Indefinite Strike  Call given by the JCA & GDS Unions DEFERRED.
 
 
Dear Comrades,
 
We are overwhelmed with the tremendous response to the Strike call from every quarter of this organisation and we extend warm revolutionary Greetings to each and every member. The reports that we were receiving about the preparations were heartthrilling. Hats off to you, Comrades! Once again it is proved that the battle will not stop till we achieve desired results.  It was a collective decision rather in the interest of both the department and the public. In the mean time certain developments have taken place. On 11th July,2010 JCA meeting was held at Delhi and reviewed the Strike preparations.  Some section/cadres and some Circles had not taken action for due mobilization.  However, the department called meeting on 12th July,2010 with Secretary Dept. of Posts and the minutes of the meeting is enclosed herewith.  Of course there is slight improvement in few items like Downgradation of EDSOs to EDBOs   drawal of increments in case of downgradation of EDSOs to EDBOs will be issued.  A presentation will be arranged by Technology Branch for the Staff side to demonstrate all the technological developments that are taking place especially in the context of functioning of EDSOS/EDBOS. Welfare measures in favour of Gramin Dak Sevaks viz relief in case of prolonged illness, relaxation of education assistance schemes will be placed before Postal Staff Welfare Board in its next meeting. The issues of Annuity and Health Scheme have been taken up with the Nodal Ministries.
Recruitment Rules for Multi Tasking Staff - the draft rules to be referred to Department of Personnel for approval. As regards educational qualifications of existing Gramin Dak Sevaks and Casual Labourers for appointment as multitasking staff, status quo will be maintained. Grant of temporary status to eligible full time status casual labourers, convert part time into full time, absorb full time, part time, contingent in vacant GDS Posts. The entire issue of Casual Labourers will be looked into with the objective of liquidating their number as per policy of the Government. Where ever dissatisfaction on  burning problems like Removal of discrimination on bonus ceiling,  Rs.20,000 for one point cash handling and other issues still we have to continue our efforts to achieve our goal.  Keeping the entire developments and circumstances in view in the interest of unity in JCA we have also agreed to defer indefinite Strike of 13.07.2010 till further notice.
 
2nd Installment of arrears, 60% for GDS
 
By this time action to effect payment of 2nd installment of Pay arrears, 60% for GDS must be under processed or payment was paid in many Circles.  Some Circles/Divisions are yet pay.  Please ensure that the arrears are paid at the earliest.  There are some problems of curtailment in arrears, downward revision of TRCA, etc.  This is because of administrative problems such as non review of TRCA/establishment periodically.  These lapses on the part of the local officers are to be set right by the administration at the base level.  The Divisional and Circle Secretaries are to look into the matter for speedy action.  
 APPEAL:
As already requested Rs.200/-(Two hundred only) per member may be collected and sent to CH Q as donation.  This amount would be of high value to the CHQ as the same is proposed for UNION BUILDING FOR GDS CHQ AND LEGAL EXPENSES. 
 
Please take this matter seriously and sincerely to ensure effective functioning of AIPEDEU at Central Head Quarters. 
 
 
Comrades, this break should be utilized for further galvanization and strengthening of organisation, for education of members and for making fool-proof preparations for the effective struggle, in case the Department Continues to be negative and back-tracking.
 
FLASH NEWS:  Proposal of Annuity Pension Scheme for GDS employees is now cleared by FINANCE.  The department will pursue the matter further.
 
With militants greetings, 
                                                                                       
Yours fraternally,
