AIGDSU DHARNA REMAINS MILE STONE AND LANDMARK IN GDS TRADE UNION MOVEMENT. 

NEVER BEFORE IN THE HISTORY OF POSTAL TRADE UNION MOVEMENT SUCH A LARGE NUMBER OF ARRESTS WERE MADE.

Dear Comrades,

          CHQ congratulates office bearers, circle secretaries, Divisional, Branch Secretaries and well wishers of GDS for making unprecedented and thundering success of 19.12.2014 Dharna. 

          You will be pleased to know that nearly three thousand Gramin Dak Sevaks from different parts of the country assembled in Dak Bhavan early morning at 8:00 A.M. on 19.12.2014 to stage dharna to protest against Department of Posts unwillingness to implement the written agreement between Department of Posts and All India Gramin Dak Sevaks Union dated 21.2.2014 to the effect that a Pay Committee headed by a judge of Supreme Court/High Court will be appointed to determine the pay structure & service conditions of the Gramin Dak Sevaks. This has not been implemented till date. We were therefore compelled to launch Massive Dharna. The Government instead of allowing GDS to stage a peaceful dharna, arrested them and detained them till late evening.

Three thousand GDS employees continued Dharna while in custody with slogans up to 5:00 P.M. in the police station. AIGDSU congratulates thousands of Gramin Dak Sevaks who willingly courted arrest for their sacrifice and heroic act. This act glorified AIGDSU as the real fighter for the cause of Gramin Dak Sevaks. Com. S.S. Mahadevaiah, General Secretary and Com. Rajangam, President met senior officers of the Prime Minister office and submitted the memorandum.  Com. S.S. Mahadevaiah explained the happenings in detail. Com. S.S. Mahadevaiah, General Secretary and Com. B.V. Rao, Asst. General Secretary negotiated with SP in the evening. All the three thousand GDS employees released unconditionally late in the evening. 

We have fought a glorious struggle. We shall continue our struggle till our demands are met. AIGDSU acknowledges with gratitude the support & solidarity we got from AITUC and the Hon’ble Member of Parliament Sri. Dilipji Gandhi.

MEMORANDUM TO HON’BLE PRIME MINISTER OF INDIA BY ALL THE GDS STAFF


AIGDSU REQUESTED TO ALL THE GDS STAFF  TO SEND MEMORANDUM THROUGH REGISTER POST

MEMORANDUM TO HON’BLE PRIME MINISTER OF INDIA

Most Respectfully We, Gramin Dak Sevaks, working in the Department of posts are submitting memorandum for your kind perusal and favourable action.

Gramin Dak Sevaks (Perviously called Extra Departmental Agents) are rendering valuable services to the rural India working in the nook and corner of the country for last hundred and fifty years with low wages Rs. 5000 to 10000 per month. Gramin Dak Sevaks are unique in the Postal Department. They are denied to grant pension, Medical facilities and 8 hour pay though they are working more than 8 hours in practical. 

Gramin Dak Sevaks are main source of Income to the Department of posts. Gramin Dak Sevaks procured 1,46,64,650 Rural Postal Life Insurance Active policies through Branch Post offices.  Seventy Six thousand Crores of rupees are earned through this scheme by Gramin Dak Sevaks.

Government of India enacted Mahatma Gandhi National Rural employment Guarentee Act (MGNREGA) in September 2005. The scheme came into effect in all districts in the country from 1st April 2008. The scheme is operational through 96, 375 Branch Post offices. During the period from April 2013 to February 2014, 63 crores 90 lakhs MGNREGA accounts were opened and an amount of ten thousand four hundred crores was disbursed.

In order to ensure quality of service under MGNREGA, Gramin Dak Sevaks are working 8 to 10 hours per day. Various social security pension schemes are also operational through Branch Post offices in rural India. Branch Post offices in Andhra Pradesh Circle are doing Adhaar Enabled Payment of wages/benefits under MGNREGA and other social security schemes with the support of M/S A.P. online. 9000 Micro ATMs have been deployed by the circle for doing the DBT (Direct benefit transfer) payment to the wage workers. Gramin Dak Sevaks have to attend more than 8 hours per day to these additional work besides normal Branch Post office work. They have to pay only 0-50 paise as incentive per account by the Department of Posts.

We are requesting the Hon’ble Prime Minister keeping all the points in view, to take necessary steps to regularize Gramin Dak Sevaks and provide 8 hours work to serve the Rural People. We are ready to work 8 hours duty to implement various schemes under IT project going to be introduced by the Government of India for the welfare of rural people to lessen the poverty among the common man.

We are also praying the Hon’ble Prime Minister’s intervention to appoint judiciary committee to examine wage structure and service conditions of Gramin Dak Sevaks as the Government of India appointed 7th Central Pay Commission headed by retired  Supreme Court Judge Sri Ashok Kumar Mathur.

The Gramin Dak Sevaks are having high hopes and expectations on the honourable Prime Minister who knows very well than any other leader in India the difficulties of down trodden to consider the justified demands of Gramin Dak Sevaks.

                                                            
 Yours faithfully

MEMORANDUM

Respected Sir,

All India Gramin Dak Sevaks Union on behalf of two lakh sixty thousand Gramin Dak Sevaks in the Department of Posts most respectfully submit the memorandum on pressing and urgent problems of Gramin Dak Sevaks, working in the nook and corner of the country to extend valuable services to the rural people by implementing the various schemes such as MGNREGS, SSPO, PLI, RPLI etc. introduced by the Govt. of India efficiently and honestly for the welfare of ordinary people.

The Gramin Dak Sevaks the main source to the Department of Posts to generate revenue through small saving scheme and Rural Postal Life Insurance.

Unfortunately these low paid employees are being neglected after independence to grant minimum wages and facilities. They are denied to grant minimum pension at par with the pension granted to the people in old age by state Government. After rendering forty years service to the department of posts, they have to spend miserable life after retirement as the Department of posts denied to grant Pension to Gramin Dak Sevaks. 

The Govt. of India appointed 7th Central Pay Commission to examine the wages and service conditions of the Departmental employees. But the Department of posts denied to appoint judiciary committee to examine the wage structure and service conditions of Gramin Dak Sevaks though there was an agreement made between this union and Member (P) of the Department of Posts.

Hence this union is humbly requesting the kind intervention of hon’ble Prime Minister  and cause suitable and necessary instructions to the Department of posts for the appointment of judiciary committee.

  This union is herewith submitting the signatures of the GDS employees of 500 districts from 28 states praying the intervention of Hon’ble Prime Minister.

With regards,


 Yours faithfully,
