CHQ Letter to Department of Posts,

GDS/CHQ/3/3/2013                                                         Dated: 01/03/2013

Sub:         Postman examination for GDS category– request change of pattern of examination/question paper reg.
Ref:          This union letter even No.dated 06.09.2012
 
Madam,

In continuation of the letter under reference we suggest the following for your judicious consideration and early favourable orders.

Due to non-circulation/publication of the MODEL QUESTION PAPERS of the revised pattern of exam most of the GDS could not prepare well.  Resultantly most of the vacancies were left unfilled.  Hence a supplementary exam needs to be conducted to grant them another chance so that all vacancies would be filled up immediately before June,2013.

Time for four papers that is 90 minutes for 100 questions (4) not at all sufficient, it should be at least 150 minutes.  For similar pattern of exam in respect of IPO exam 180 minutes are given for 150 questions.  The standard of the candidates needs to be looked into objectively and justifiably, we strongly feel.

Liberalisation of standard of question paper is very essential.  The papers are set by the officer of DPS rank, of high standard hence earlier method ideal.  The GDS find it very difficult to digest; especially the senior GDS employees and this will block their promotional avenue.  Through out his service every GDS dreams of his promotion! 

Instead of General Knowledge, please ensure knowledge of the departmental rules in respect of MTS/Postmen cadre. Test on minimum skill for Job requirement is the purpose of this exam. The papers of Mathematics and English should be simplified keeping practical aspect in mind. The candidate must be in a position to score at least minimum qualifying marks as all GDS are able to perform the duties of MTS/Postman efficiently in reality.  Presently GDS employees are officiating in the temporary vacancies of Postmen/MTS constantly and are rendering satisfactory service.  This practical aspect needs to be taken for natural justice in this issue.  The life of the neglected and much exploited GDS to be taken seriously we strongly feel. 

Seniority and seniority cum fitness - most viable formula: Selection by seniority as done in the previous recruitment rules and seniority cum fitness in case of exam will be proper and ideal in the practical approach.  The deprived class are further neglected by the revised recruitment rules and it was one of the Strike demands in the 16.10.2012 indefinite Strike too, our members are agitating over the issue and therefore the matter needs to be viewed in proper perspective. 

We therefore request you to review the matter in the light of the above, in consultation with this union, and cause to stop direct recruitment from open market.  For filling up of MTS and Postmen vacancies from GDS is also DIRECT RECRUITMENT!

A letter written by Divisional Secretary, Akola division, Nagpur region, Maharastra circle is enclosed herewith for kind information please.

An early action in this regard would be highly appreciated under intimation of nature of action.

Thanking you,
With regards,

Sub :-Regarding inability of G.D.S employees to discharge their duties efficiently & sincerely due to continuous work pressure and humiliation.

Madam/Sir,

Please find the enclosed memorandum of problems submitted by the GDS employees of Bangalore in Karnataka Circle.  The GDS employees are really working hard and taking all stress and strain in discharging their routine job efficiently.  It is a peculiar arrangement done at Bangalore alone to further exploit the already neglected section by engaging them for more time than they suppose to work.

The special recruitment of GDS (speed post) was proposed to induct new blood into the delivery crew for speedy delivery of speed post articles received for delivery at the Metro city Bangalore.  Driving License was made compulsory to the candidates applying to this special recruitment and a provision was made to compensate fuel charges incurred on the own vehicles used by the GDSMD, speed post.  Petrol rate is now Rs.75/- at Bangalore and the GDS employees are compelled to bear additional expenditure because of steep rise in fuel charges and maintenance of vehicles.  Kindly imagine the difficulty of this low paid GDS working in the urban area like Bangalore. 

Further they are forced to work beyond their working hours like regular postman who does 8 hours work.  They are also compelled to carry parcels to ensure prompt delivery of parcels at the door step of our valued customers.  Here also proper facilities lacking, need to be given for smooth work.  Practical problems of GDS at the work spot as well as in the delivery beat are explained in the enclosure for your kind perusal.

Directorate instructions on avoiding engagement of GDS employees in urban areas to be ensured as far as possible in view of the exploitation of labour which also amounts to violation of human rights. 

We do sincerely hope that your kind self would look into the matter in its entirety and cause orders deemed fit that is regularization of the services of GDS employees working in Bangalore urban city, the place of international importance, in the interest of justice and fair play.

Awaiting early response,

Thanking you
Yours faithfully,

Sub:-      Avoid in delay in payment of retirement benefits of GDS-Reg.
 
Madam,

Even though orders were issued by the department of posts for making payment or retirement benefits on the next day of date of retirement of GDS employees, the orders of department are not implemented by the authorities at various levels. Resultantly the retired GDS officials are dragged on in the streets without setting their legitimate entitlements for years together even after retirement.

It is heart breathing to mention that the concerned authorities are functioning without conscience.

We therefore request you to take proper action to reduce the grievances.

With regards
