Several programmes of action have been successfully observed.

          You are further aware that the next programme is to hold circle level conventions during April-June 2011 to highlight and popularize our demands. This is a very vital and important programme where we should invite local public leaders and gentry to attend the convention. We should apprise them of our problems to gather more public support.

MEETING WITH HON'BLE COMMUNICATION SHRI KAPIL SIBAL JEE,

MEETING WITH HON'BLE COMMUNICATION SHRI KAPIL SIBAL JEE, HELD ON 29.3.11 REGARDING GDS ISSUES WITH SATISFACTORY ASSURANCE DETAIL CIRCULAR FOLLOWS SHORTLY
WE ARE REPRODUCING THE MEMORUNDAM BELOW

GDS/CHQ/4/3/2011                                       Dated: 29.03.2011
           
To

Shri Kapil Sibal Jee,
Hon'ble Minister for Communications & IT
Government of India
Electronic Niketan, 6 CGO Complex,
Lodhi Road, New Delhi-110001

Respected Sir,

With deep respect and humility, we venture to seek a bit of your precious time to submit herewith a brief memorandum on the pressing and burning problems of Gramin Dak Sevak employees of the Department of Posts.
We earnestly believe that the issues will receive your sympathetic consideration for long impending solution. Our belief is based on the concrete foundation that the issues need a judicious and political touch at the hands of one of the most renounced jurists of the land.
With profound regards,
                                              Yours faithfully,
DA: one Memorandum
                                                                        (S.S.MAHADEVAIAH)
                                                                         GENERAL SECRETARY


MEMORANDUM
Background: The Gramin Dak Sevaks are the employees of the Department of Posts who are responsible for maintaining and providing communications services to rural India. We are aware that the Government has been laying special stress on rural uplift. On this score, Communication is going to be of vital importance. It is heartening to note that the Department of Posts has recognized this well in time and there is a proposal for updating rural post offices ¼Branch Post Offices½ by connecting them with internet. But the employees in these Post Offices i.e., Gramin Dak Sevaks have long been victims of discrimination. The three lac Gramin Dak Sevaks believe that a great jurist at the helm of affairs will do justice on the principle of right to equality provided in the Constitution of India.
2. Justice Talwar Committee Recommendations: While other Committees on service conditions and related matters have been constituted under Chairmanship of bureaucrats, it was in 1995 that a Committee under Justice Chranjit Talwar, retired Judge of Delhi High Court was constituted. Based on the three judge judgment of the Supreme Court of India in Rajamma's case (SC, 1977½ Justice Talwar Committee recommended equality in status as civil servants and pay scales on the  basis of work hours, while the commendations of this judicial committee were mainly neglected, a few were hugely abridged before implementation.
          A Committee under  Sri Natarajamurthy, a retired bureaucrat has tried and infact, over ruled the findings of justice Talwar. It has, therefore, become necessary to revisit the recommendations of Justice Talwar Committee in the light of several judgments of the Supreme Court for necessary action.
          Your good self, may kindly consider this aspect and pass judicious orders.
3. Discrimination in bonus ceiling: The ceiling on pay and allowances for grant of bonus to employees has been fixed at Rs.3500/- irrespective of pay. This applies to Gramin Dak Sevaks as well. But the Department of Posts has unreasonably and arbitrarily reduced this ceiling to Rs.2500/-.
          You may graciously and judicially view this discrimination and remove the injustice.
4. Tightening of norms for assessment of work hours: We need hardly emphasize that the condition of business in rural post offices is different from this prevailing in urban areas. The department of posts has abruptly and arbitrarily raised the quantum of cash handling from Rs.1000/- to Rs.20,000/- for one point and stamp sales amount to Rs.900/- from Rs.45/- Besides work done in payment of MNREGS is ignored. This works to be detriment of the BPMs and has to be revised.
          Your honour may kindly order modification of tightened norms to be practicable and in consultation with this Union.
5. Curtailment in promotional avenues: In the recently made Recruitment Rules for Postman, the already scanty promotional avenues of the Gramin Dak Sevaks have been further curtailed by 25%. We have submitted reasoned views on this issue to the Secretary, Department of Posts (a copy enclosed as Annexure-I). The said Recruitment Rules need to be modified in the light of our suggestions.
Your honour may kindly pass necessary orders.
6. Compassionate appointments: In the recently circulated yard sticks for recruitment on compassionate grounds on death in harness while the same are faulty and not based on facts, this will abridge this small benefit of Gramin Dak Sevaks and abnormally delay such recruitment defeating the very purpose. We have submitted detailed note on the issue to the Secretary, Department of Posts ¼a copy enclosed as Annexure-II).
Your honour may kindly cause suitable amendment as proposed by us.
7. Grant of Trade Union facilities: The ED Agent ¼Recognition & Association½ Rules, 1995 are verbatim reproduction of the CCS ¼Recognition of Service Associations½ Rules, 1993 and other related orders are the same. But our Union has not been granted any trade union facility. Not even the facility of Foreign Service at our own cost and no special casual leave to attend organizational meetings or meetings with administration. This is highly arbitrary and unjustified.
Your honour may graciously consider the issue and order that minimum trade union facilities are granted to ensure proper functioning of the Union.

Introduced a long-awaited (PFRDA) New pension bill in parliament

Introduced a long-awaited (PFRDA) New pension bill in parliament.
 
NEW DELHI: India's finance minister introduced a long-awaited pension bill in parliament on Thursday that would pave the way for private players in the sector and help cut government spending.

 
The Pension Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) bill, which would allow part investment of the corpus in the stock market, will take time for parliamentary approval as the current session of parliament ends on Friday.

The bill had failed to get parliamentary approval in the previous term of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's government due to strong opposition from its then Left allies.

 
The coalition has the majority now to get it passed, and the main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party has indicated it would not oppose the bill.

 
The proposed legislation was silent on allowing foreign companies to invest up to 26 percent in pension funds that was part of a draft, but said the government would separately announce foreign investment policy for the sector.

 
The bill provides powers to the PFRDA to oversee multiple pension funds in the country.

All the employees of the federal government except the armed forces, who have joined since January 2004, would be covered by the proposed National Pension System under the new legislation.


Twenty seven states have agreed to join the new pension system, the bill said, under the proposed law that is expected to provide social security to millions of employees and funds for infrastructure sector.

2 HOUR DEMONSTRATION AGANST PFRDA BILL-CONFEDERATION CALL.

2 HOUR DEMONSTRATION AGANST PFRDA BILL-CONFEDERATION CALL 
PFRDA BILL INTRODUCED IN THE PARLIAMENT:
HOLD DEMONSTRATION BETWEEN 12 AND 2 PM ON
FRIDAY 25TH MARCH 2011
IN FRONT OF ALL OFFICES
TO REGISTER OUR STRONG PROTEST AGAINST THE ATTROCIOUS ATTEMPT
OF THE UPA GOVERNMENT 
TO REINTRODUCE THE LAPSED BILL

Dear Comrade,

The UPA II Government has today introduced the PFRDA Bill once again in the Parliament.  The  bill  that was introduced earlier  by the then Finance Minister, Shri P. Chidambaram, could not muster sufficient support to get enacted as the Left parties Parties opposed it. Even though the enactment could not be made, the Government through executive fiat had converted the statutory defined benefit Pension scheme which is in existence for decades in the case of Government employees into a contributory pension scheme.   
            The All India State Government Employees Federation and the Confederation of Central Government employees had jointly taken the decision earlier to oppose the introduction of the Bill by organizing a two hour walk out programme. Accordingly we call upon all our Affiliates and State Units to immediately organize demonstration in front of all offices between 12 and 2 PM and mobilize the members for sustained serious programmes of action in the days to come.  Intensive campaign programmes must be undertaken to bring home the pernicious impact the bill will bring about on the existing pensionary benefits of the Government employees. Besides, The funds accumulated from the contributions made by the employees as stipulated in the New Contributory pension scheme would be diverted to stock market for investment. Since the Government is to contribute equal amount as is being made by the employees, the new contributory pension scheme would be an unbearable drag on the exchequer and the sole beneficiary would be the big corporate houses. We must therefore embark upon a sustained struggle against the new scheme including a day's strike action as and when the bill is taken up for enactment by the Parliament..
            With greetings,


Yours fraternally,


K.K.N.Kutty;
Secretary General

All Chief Postmaster General,

 

Subject:          MATERNITY GRANT TO WOMEN GRAMIN DAK SEVAKS OUT OF WELFATE FUND OF THE DEPARTMENT- INSTRUCTIONS REGARDING

 

Sir/Madam,

 

Reference is invited to this Directorate letter No.6-1/2009. PE.II dated 09 October 2009 providing for Maternity Grant to the women GDS.

 

2. One man Committee under Shri RS Nataraja Murti constituted under Resolution No. 6-1/2007-PE II dated 23rd July 2007 examined the system of Extra Departmental Post Offices and wage structure of Gramin Dak Sevak & submitted its report on 29th October 2008. After approval of Cabinet, the Department issued orders under No. 6-1/2009 PE II dated 09 October 2009. It was prescribed under Para 9 of the ibid that "women GDS will be provided Maternity Grant equivalent to three months TRCA with DA for the birth date of issue of the order".

 

3. The recommendations made by the One man Committee in Para 16.10.1have been examined further and it has been decided that Maternity Grant equal to three month's TRCA with DA out of welfare fund will be payable from the welfare fund at the disposal of the Circles effective from 09 October 2009 on fulfillment of the following conditions;-

 

(a)               Maternity Grant will be payable to a woman GDS for each child up to the birth of maximum of two children limited to a maximum of two confinements resulting into birth of first two children only during the entire engagement of the following of a woman GDS.

(b)               The women GDS must have rendered a minimum of one year service of becoming eligible for grant under the provision.

(c)                No Financial Grant will be admissible for medical termination of pregnancy (abortion). Miscarriage and still births.

4.                  The scheme of allowing Maternity Grant is like any other ongoing welfare scheme paid out of welfare fund. Funds will be allocated for this scheme by welfare section of this Directorate to the Circles. Heads of the Division will be competent to sanction Maternity Grant to the women GDS out of welfare fund placed at their disposal by the Circle concerned.

5.               Woman Gramin Dak Sevaks like Mil Deliverer and Mail Carrier may also be considered for lighter duties wherever possible during the pre and post confinement period for a maximum period of six months.

6.                  Woman GDS shall be granted Maternity Leave not exceeding six months covering the pre and post confinement period. For the period of Maternity Leave, Woman GDS will be paid Maternity Grant for three months and leave for another three months may be granted without allowances.

7.                   Existing powers of Divisional Heads for grant of leave beyond 180 days leave without allowances availed by GDS to work against in Group D and Postman vacancies would also cover period of three month Maternity Leave with allowances (Maternity Grant) and another period of leave for three months without allowances if availed by Woman GDS.

8.                   The contents may be brought to the knowledge of all concerned. This has the approval of the competent authority.

 

Yours faithfully,
