1 BHARTIYA POST JANUARY, 2007

BEWARE OF BUSINESS
Till 1980s, the postal family did not hear the words
like "Business", "Products" & "Consumers" in the
postal parlance. The postal employees were taught
as 'Customer is Never Wrong', 'Service Before Self'.
Department of Posts is a forerunner in respecting
customers. While recollecting, in those days of total
monopoly of communication services, even when a
complaint on service by a public was given a serious
concern issuing atleast a simple warning to officials
of no fault.
Now a new abbreviation LPG (Liberalisation,
Privatisation, Globalisation) becomes a catchy word
in the Business arena. The word ' Business' is
normally looked as antonym to 'service'. Reducing to
simplicity, one means 'profit oriented' and the another
means 'welfare oriented'. Department of Posts now
takes its position in this queue with sounding words
of Business, Products and Customer.
With no conceptualism, one business product or
the other is being introduced with profit orientation.
Even in field level, a role of salesmanship is also played
promoting seasonal products like Sabarimalai
Prasadams, Christmas Cakes etc. Every sale of
product is clamoured with profit with nice presentation
of designed table of statistics.
A close look of all these statistics reveals a
conspicuous absence of right profit & loss account
and balance sheet for each product. That is, due
establishment expenditure (men & materials) involved
in the whole business is not at all taken into account.
All establishment charges are accounted for only with
the traditional services / products leading to falsification
of traditional products as loss making. Even after a
decade old RPLI, only in the last year, a token (small)
amount allotment was made for salary head. Cost of
stationary, policy, printing forms etc. are even met from
the general allotment only.
Now it is right time to go for scientific analysis of
each business product with foolproof balance sheet
to know where we are!
The Department of Posts, shi rki ng i ts
responsibilities to restore the monopoly of past by
paying more attention for improving the traditional
service and offering a good service to the people at
large is resorting unproductive, clamorous business
schemes at the cost of traditional services and also
enlarging the Business Directorate and creating
abundant officers post for the business service in each
circle and divisions, forgetting the toiling employees
at the counters and back office in the absence of
adequate staff.
It is our firm opinion that the much talked about
many business products are only of temporary, seasonal
nature which cannot give lasting solution. Talking of
profits in these products without taking into account
the cost involved is nothing but a Ostrich look of way.
POST OFFICE SAVINGS ACCOUNTS LIKELY TO ENTER ATM LEAGUE
In a move that is sure to bring smiles to millions of postal savings account holders in the country, the
government is proposing to set up ATMs in all major post offices in the country to in a phased manner.
The ATM facility will come as a big relief for customers who receive money from loved ones abroad through
Western Union Money transfer. "The setting up of ATMs in post offices is a welcome step. We have over 140 million
postal savings account holders and their total savings is just under Rs. 4 lakh crore," Shakeel Ahmed, minister of
state of communications and IT, told ET.
Mr. Ahmed said the postal department is keen on entering the banking sector. According to government
sources, having an ATM network in place would be the first step towards the department of post's (DoP) ambition
of launching full-fledged banking services.
Officials, however, refused to specify a time frame for the roll-out of ATMs at post offices, and said the project
was in the conception stage with details still being worked out. "It is a priority area for the department, and the
project will start with networking and computeristion of post offices. The process has already begun through
establishment of a national data centre. Once the branches are linked, an account holder in Delhi will be able to
withdraw money when he is in Chennal", said sources.
The postal department's services span five areas such as mail (letters and parcels), express (Speed Post),
financial services, postal life insurance and philately. The department has identified Speed Post and financial
services as its engines of growth. The DoP is working on a plan to hive off its financial department into a stand-alone
bank. This is because the DoP currently passes off its entire collections to the finance ministry in return for a fixed
commission, but a stand-alone banking arm will enable the department to make independent investment decision.

As would be seen from the above in the context of
deduction of subscription, no distinction has been
between a recognized and an unrecognized union/
service associations.
2. Further, vide Department's letter No. 13-2/94-SR
dated 27-4-95 the above instructions were made
applicable to Extra Departmental Agents also

OFFICE MEMORANDUM
Issue of a show-cause notice to the pensioner

the pensiner is convicted in judicial
proceedings for an offence committed by him

As per this Department's OM No. 38/31/86-P&PW
dt. 1st January, 1987 (GOI Decision No. 4 below Rule
9 of CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972). When a full-fledged
enquiry under CCS (CCA) Rules has been conducted
and the person concerned has been given an
opportunity to show cause in the proceedings, it is
not necessary to give the pensioner concerned any
further opportunity to show cause before imposing the
cut in pension.
2. The question whether a show-cause notice to the
pensioner is necessary before imposing a cut in his
pension where the pension is convicted in judicial
proceedings for an offence committed by him while in
service, has been examined in consultation with
Department of legal affairs and it has been decided
that in order to meet the principal of natural justice, it
is a pre-requisite to issue a show cause notice on the
basis of conviction by the court to the pensioner before
imposing any cut in his pension for clear manifestation
of principle of natural justice.

REPEATS
Copy of D.G. (Posts) letter No. 4-26/98-Vig.
Dated:- 29 January 1999
Improving Vigilance Administration
Central Vigilance Commissioner vide letter No. 8
(1) (h)/98 (1) dated 18-11-98 (copy enclosed) issued
detailed instructions and guidelines with a view to
improving the vigilance administration, creating a culture
of honesty, greater transparency in administration as
also for speedier finalisation of departmental inquiries.
The following action points have been identified on
which action is required to be taken by this
Department.
(i) Create culture of honesty.
In order to ensure that a culture of honesty is
encouraged in the Department and has been
deci ded wi t h i mmedi at e ef f ect t hat j uni or
employees who initiate any proposal relating to
vigilance matters which is likely to remit in a
reference, to the CVC can send a copy directly to
the CVC by name. CVC will monitor the progress
of such a proposal and the action taken thereon
by the Department concerned. This will encourage
the junior employees to give their free and frank
views and help to build and develop a culture of
honesty. However, if a junior officer makes a false
or frivolous complaint, it will be viewed adversely.
(ii) Greater transparency in administration.
CVC has identified lack of transparency as one
major source of corruption. To curb this corrupt
practice, greater transparency work be useful. There
is a scope for patronage and corruption especially in
matters relation to tenders, cases identity such item
which provide open for corruption and where created
transparency would be useful. All Heads of Circle
may identify such items at their end and forward the
list to this Directorate latest by 15th February, 1999.
A list of items prepared on the basis of complaints
usually received is enclosed. Competent Authorities
at different levels should give publicity of the identified
items within their competence in their respective notice
boards.
(iii) Speedy departmental inquiries.
Another source of corruption is that the guilty are
not punished adequately and promptly. This is because
of the prolonged delays in the finalisation of
departmental inquiries. One of the reasons is over-
burdening of IO / PO with their normal and routine
work. CVE has, therefore, directed that the
Department should review all the pending cases and
assure that the disciplinary authority may appointment
officers from among the retired honest employees in
conducting the inquiries. The names of such officers
may, however, be got cleared by the CVC. Therefore,
all Heads of Circles and Regions are requested to
furnish the list of retired and honest employees who
are willing to work as IOs for the purpose of conducting
inquiries.
The following time limits have also been prescribed
for the expeditious completion of the departmental
inquiries:-
(a) Appointment of Inquiry Officer and Presenting
Officer in the cases presently pending should be
made within one month. In all other cases, they
may be appointed immediately after the receipt of
the statement of defence denying the charges.
(b) The oral inquiry should be completed within a period
of 6 months from the date of appointment of the
Inquiry Officer. The IO should lay down a definite
time frame for inspection of the listed documents
submission of the list of defence documents and
defence witnesses and inspection of defence
documents before the regular hearing is taken up.
Once this time frame is worked out by the IO, the
hearing should be conducted in day-to-day basis
without adjourning on flimsy or frivolous grounds.
In any case, there should not be more than two
adjournments in any case so that the time limit of
six months is observed.
(c) The IO/PO, the DA and the Vigilance Officers will
be accountable for the strict compliance of these
instructions.
(iv) Tenders.
Tenders are generally a major source of corruption.
In order to avoid corruption a more transparent and
effective system needs to be introduced. Therefore, it
has been decided that post tenders negotiations are
banned with immediate effect. except in the case of
negotiations with the lowest tenderer.
It is, therefore, requested that the instructions
contained in CVC letter cited above may be strictly
adhered to and brought to the notice of all concerned
and compliance reported to this office along with the
required information latest by 15 February, 1999
positively.
(This important order has not earlier been
circulated to the divisional levels. This 'REPEAT'
will be purposeful to arrest the menance of
corruption at all levels.) ....(To be continued)

During discussions, the DDG (P) agreed to cause instructions to circle heads in case of seeking
clarifications to fill up the residual vacancies (unfilled up vacancies earmarked to Postman / Group
'D') remaining unfilling up since 2000 onwards. He informed that in cases if any action was initiated
to fill up the posts under residual vacancies within one year after the exam, there is no bar to fill up
the vacancies now.
All Circle Secretaries are requested to pursue with the Circle Administration either to fill up the
vacancies or to refer the matter to Directorate so that these posts will be filled up at the earliest
possible either by conducting an exam among GDS officials or by direct recruitment.
RESIDUAL VACANCIES - FILLING UP OF THE POSTS
8 BHARTIYA POST JANUARY, 2007
FROM GENERAL SECRETARY'S DESK
Dear Comrades,
KUDOS:-
At the outset, I record my heartiest congratulations
to all the comrades who bravely participated in the
14th December 2006 strike and made it a grand
success in the postal. Reports are quite encouraging
that in many circles there was total dislocation of
service and our comrades proved once again that they
will show their oneness and unity against all anti-worker
policies of the Government. Our sincere appreciations
to all the Branch / Divisional Secretaries at base levels
who engineered this movement and made it a grand
success.
RANK & FILE IS THE BRAIN OF ORGANISAION:-
Comrades, I am always practising this very simple
theory that 'all are equals; we are one among the
equals." I am always thinking that there are many
comrades who had excellent skill and knowledge but
could not get the opportunity as if I got to serve in the
movement as General Secretary. Therefore, I desire
and seek the opinions of the rank and file always and
only with their able guidance, the movement will march
forward.
PRIORITIES - TWO:-
There are two problems which I felt very serious
at the time of my assumption as General Secretary:
One is the Screening Committee and the other is the
non-filling up of HSG.I posts etc. There are many
other problems of course! But the priority remains on
these issues.
DON MANTLE DRESS:-
After the continuous preservation by the CHQ and
also NFPE, now a cabinet note has been prepared by
the department requesting to exempt the postal
department from the purview of Screening Committee.
Unfortunately, the file still is under clearance of our
Hon'ble Minister. We have categorically informed the
department unless the ban is lifted and adequate posts
created, we will not rest. The working committee
meeting scheduled to be held at Karim Nagar from
22nd to 23rd December 2006 will take some serious
decision of agitational programmes exclusively for this
demand.
REALISE RESPONSIBILITY:-
So far the problem of filling up of HSG.I post is
concerned, it is almost over and the Circle / Divisional
Secretaries should see whether the Directorate orders
issued vide letter No. 4-16/2002-SPB.II dated 20-11-
2006 is properly implemented.
CLEAR ORDERS:-
According to the order mentioned in para supra,
all the existing HSG.I posts shall be filled up with the
HSG.II norm based officials without observing any
minimum service in HSG.II. This relaxation is
applicable for one year or till the Recruitment Rules
are notified whichever is earlier.
BE SERIOUS ON CHECKLIST:-
Now the department is processing to issue a
revised HSG.I Recruitment Rules at the earliest.
Comrades! as such, all the vacant HSG.I posts can
be filled up and please see the checklist annexed with
the said order. In which, it is categorically stated that
before issuing HSG.I promotion, the notional LSG
promotion & HSG.I promotion from 1986 to 2002 be
ensured notionally. Secondly the 1/3rd LSG vacancies
earmarked for general category from 24-01-2002 to
18-05-2006 be filled up on notional basis. After 18-05-
2006, all the vacant LSG posts be filled up.
If this process is adhered strictly there will be more
number of HSG.II officials with notional promotion and
all will get HSG.I promotion immediately.
REMAINING TWO FACTORS:-
It is my fervent appeal to all my Circle Secretaries
and Divisional Secretaries to see that this problem is
once for settled by strictly adhering the Directorate
orders. Hereafter, there are only two issues remain
unsettled in the LSG, HSG.II & HSG.I issues.
(i) Rule 38 officials affected due to seniority in the
divisional gradation list;
(ii) Variation of LSG posts in different divisions and
the seniors of the circle gradation list affected in
LSG promotion;
In order to settle these anomalies also, the CHQ
is moving seriously and hope that we could settle this
issue once for all shortly.
FORMATION OF GDS COMMITTEE - REJECTION
OF REQUEST:-
Despite the requests and placing as a demand in
the charter of demands for 14-12-2006 strike to form
GDS committee headed by a Judicial member, the
department has replied to NFPE in its letter No. 8-7/
2006-SR dated 08-12-2006 as interalia:
"Keeping in view the overall interest of Gramin Dak
Sevaks, it has been decided at the level of Hon'ble
Minister of Communications & IT to constitute a
Committee for GDS to be headed by Senior Retired
Officer of the Department of Posts. You will appreciate
that Gramin Dak Sevaks is an institution peculiar to
9 BHARTIYA POST JANUARY, 2007
the Department of Posts and, therefore, a departmental
officer would be most suited to the assignment."
CLARITY VISION:-
The department is neither willing to remit the GDS
issues for consideration by 6th Pay Commission not
by a Judicial Committee. This clearly indicates the
reluctance in mitigating the genuine discriminations
and grievances of the GDS comrades. Our NFPE
has taken a clear stand that unless a committee
headed a Judicial Member, we will not rest. Further
course of action will be decided soon.
SOUGHT HELP:-
Meanwhile, a delegation led by Com. C.C. Pillai,
Secretary General, NFPE along with Com. Desraj
Sharma, General Secretary, P-IV, Com. Giriraj Singh,
General Secretary, R-III, Com. S.S. Mahadevaiah,
General Secretary, GDS Union and myself met Com.
Basudeb Acharya, MP on 15-12-2006 and requested
his good offices on this issue. He had also assured
to talk with the Minister.
PAY COMMISSION:-
We are seriously drafting the memorandum
pertaining to the problems of P3 comrades and the
draft copy will be placed in the working committee
meeting on 22-12-2006 at Karim Nagar. A draft copy
will be suppled to all the Circle Secretaries for
circulation to divisions and consolidate their views,
suggestions and forward to CHQ before final
submission. Meanwhile, it is also in my opinion to
exhibit the same in the website and will try for it.
BHARTIYA POST:-
In fact, the cost of a single of journal exceeds Rs.
6/- per issue and it is distributed at a subsidy rate of
Rs. 2.50 with the intention to mobilise the rank & file
with updated information. The Divisional / Branch
Secretaries should initiate efforts to enrol more
subscribers for the journal, which alone will keep our
organisation in live. Can I expect this from my
Divisional / Branch Secretaries in the new year 2007?
URGENT PLEASE :-
My fervent appeal to furnish the updated mailing
list of all Divisional / Branch Secretaries is yet to be
compiled by most of the circles. Updating the mailing
list is most essential for the safe receipt of mails, journal,
news letters etc. from the CHQ to the Divisional / Branch
Secretaries. All are requested to furnish their latest
address to the CHQ without any hesitation or delay.
Let us meet in the next.
SEASONS GREETINGS AND A HAPPY NEW
YEAR TO ALL COMRADES!
K.V. Sridharan
General Secretary

Development and in order to avoid acute shortage of
various kinds of forms and given the fact that public
inconvenience is largely involved, it has been decided
in the Directorate:
(a) That the Heads of Circles may go ahead with
floating of tenders in respect of those forms where
supply from Government of India Presses has been
inordinately delayed and award the work by following
usual codal formalities as stipulated in GFR without
asking for any 'NOC' from Directorate of Printing.
(b) For future requirement, Heads of Circles may first
place orders with the Government of India Presses
and if no supply is received within a reasonable period,
they may float tenders without seeking a No objection
Certificate from Directorate of Printing, with just a copy
of the tender notice to Directorate of Printing. This
would enable Government of India Presses to
participate in the tender, if they so desire. If the
Government of India Presses/Directorate of Printing
do not participate in this tender. Heads of Circles may
go ahead in deciding the tender as per relevant
provisions/stipulations of the GFR.
4. In between, if the Ministry of Urban Development/
Directorate of Printing sends details and clarification
of 'Purchase Preference', these orders, if necessary
would be reviewed again and revised instructions, if
necessary, would be issued.
5. Kindly acknowledge receipt of this letter.
POSTAL BILL DELAYED, MAY BE TAKEN UP IN BUDGET SESSION
MUMBAI : The department of posts' (DoP) efforts in pushing the India Post Office (Amendment) Bill '06
seem to be making no headway. The Bill is languishing with the committee of secretaries (CoS) for
reconsideration and incorporation of changes. "The Bill is not going to come up in its present from. We have
sent it to CoS to incorporate certain changes and make modifications." said Jyotsna Deish, Secretary, DoP.
There was talks that the Bill would be taken up in the winter session of Parliament, but clearly this will
not be the case. "It will take a long time as it has to pass through various levels of reckoning and approvals
and will possibly be taken up only in the Budget session" says Ms Deish. Although the approval has been
substantialy delayed, DoP believes that the Bill will be implemented as it is just and duly warranted.
The Bill took shape when DoP, citing its Universal Service Obligation (USO), had called for an amendment
to the Indian Post Office Act to give itself exclusive rights for carriage and delivery of letters, weighing below
300 grams or three times the value of a mail, across the country. The amendment also pointed at reducing
foreign direct investment (FDI) in the express industry to 49% and a 10% levy to be paid by private operators
for servicing DoP's USO.
According to a recent study conducted by Mumbai-based Credit Analysis and Research (CARE) advisory,
the size of the Indian Express industry is around Rs 7,100 crore ($1.6bn) with 2,500 players, derived from
their service tax payment of Rs 630 crore in 05-06. The list includes Blazeflash, Professional Couriers,
Overnite Express, Prakash Air, Freight, First Flight, AFL Wiz, Vichare among a host of other semi-organised
and unorganised players to the tune of about 28% in various parts of the country. Considering, if the Bill in its
current form were to get through, the industry could have suffered a revenue loss of around Rs 670 crore a
year, or a 30.5% reduction in business.
Ms Deish also said that India Post has been collecting suggestions from various sources, including
experts, academia and industry "which are being incorporated and will be reflected in the final form of the
Bill". While the DoP is slaving it out, the private courier industry is happy, at least for the time being. RK
Saboo, chairman, Express Industry Council of India (EICI), says, "It is good that the matter has been
deferred to incorporate suggestions but we would expect the DoP to have a two-way dialogue with the
industry within this time." Mr Saboo also believes that holding these talks will" put viewpoints across the
table and lead to a path of adopting practices which are followed by express industry worldwide."

LETTERS TO DEPARTMENT
Letter No. P/4-7/IPOs Exam, Date: 07 December
2006 addressed to Smt. Jyotsna Diesh, Secretary,
Department of Posts.
Allowing to appear in the Departmental
Exam like IPOs - case of physically
handicapped officials - reg.
Ref.: Directorate letter No. 7-8/04-SPB dated 28-
07-2005
It is brought to our notice that the Directorate has
clarified vide its letter referred above that physically
handicapped officials should not be allowed to appear
in the IPO Examination as they are unable to perform
the physically demanding nature of work.
This is unfortunate and total injustice to the
physically handicapped officials who fulfil all the required
qualifications, skills etc. and could perform the duties
efficiently and effectively. There are many jobs in IPO
cadre which did not require any outdoor duties. Even
in the case of physically handicapped officials, they
could also do the outdoor duties with the vehicle,
advance equipments or with the assistance.
Their disability should not be construed or taken as a
ruse to deny their justified right to appear in the examination
which is against to the canon of natural justice.
It is, therefore, requested to reconsider the decision
and allow all physically handicapped officials to appear
in the exam under relaxed terms or at least fix some
reservation of the posts of IPOs which do not require
any outdoor duties like in circle, regional offices.
Soliciting immediate response,
Letter No. P/4-4/Refund of Fee, Date: 07 December
2006 addressed to Smt. Jyotsna Diesh, Secretary,
Department of Posts.
Refund of fee for appearing AMFI (Association
of Mutual Fund Industry) Exam to all
candidates - reg.
Ref.: Directorate letter No. 95-02/2006-FS dated
31-05-2006
According to the Directorate instructions referred
above, the officials who are appearing the AMFI test
have to pay the fees of Rs. 500/- in the form of DD and
the said amount my be waived and refunded only to
the successful candidates.
This is arbitrary and unjust. The training is
pertaining for the services of Unit Trust of India. In most
of the divisions, the officials are compelled to write the
test in order to promote the UTI business. As such the
denial of refund of exam fee is unjust and unfair.
It is most pertinent to mention that the officials
come out successful are not being paid with any higher
pay scale or with any extra remuneration. This is
nothing but to promote the business skill of the officials.
As such, the entire amount spent by the employees
for examination be borne by the department either on
own or collecting from UTI etc.
It is, therefore, requested to cause revised
instructions granting refund of exam fee to all those
appeared in the examination duly borne the
expenditure by the department itself under BD head.
A line in reply about the action taken is highly
appreciated.
Letter No. P/4-1/Shortage of Staff, Date: 15
November 2006 addressed to Smt. Jyotsna Diesh,
Secretary, Department of Posts.
Shortage of staff - remedial measures
requested - reg.
Ref.: This union letter P/2-1/Gudur dated 17-10-
2006
Apropos reference, I wish to inform that neither
the letter mentioned in the reference is acknowledged
nor replied so far.
The reference contains various suggestions to
meet the unbearable shortage existing in the Postal
Assistant cadres. The following are few:-
(i) The vacancies existed prior to formation of
Screening Committee may be filled up;
(ii) The vacancies unfilled up under "Residual" since
2000-01 due to non-qualifying the exam by the
departmental candidates can be filled up by
conducting exam among GDS officials or by direct
recruitment;
(iii) By granting OTA to all A, B & C office Sub
Postmasters and exempting the ceiling limit is
one of the solution. In respect of one shortage, at
least three hours OTA may be ensured;
(iv) Extending the honorarium for RD premature closure
to the staff working in sub offices;
(v) Granting MIS honorarium to all post offices
removing the counter ceiling of Rs. 500/-;
(vi) Granting incentive to RPLI work at divisional office
/ Head Post offices;
(vii) Granting incentive for all the new products and
business activities;
Apart from the above, we wish to place the
following for your kind consideration:-
1. Outsourcing the work in permanent and leave
vacancies of Postal Assistants by engaging retired
Postal Assistant pensioners.
14 BHARTIYA POST JANUARY, 2007
There are many retired officials willing up to work in
the post office on daily wage basis at the minimum of
the scale. This can be considered that as retired officials
are receiving pension, there is no chance of claiming
for regular absorption and they are conversant with the
nature of job. If the services of retired pensioner is
utilised, it will ensure some relief for the day-to-day work.
2. Now GDS are working in departmental postmen
vacancies and they are considered as outsiders
working in the post and granted minimum pay in the
postmen cadre. Similarly, the well qualified GDS
official now available in abundant can be utilised in the
same manner for the vacant posts of Postal Assistant
for 6 to 8 hours. A written statement from them may
be obtained if need be, prior to engagement that he
will not claim regular / temporary appointment due to
their engagements in the vacant posts.
If both the above proposal are considered in true
spirit considering the untold sufferings, and miseries
of the Postal Assistants, it will be a great relief in
reducing the ill effect of shortage of manpower.
It is further learnt that the department is venturing
with new business tie up like Rail Ticket Reservation
at Head Post Offices etc. and all these works could
be done by ensuring adequate Group 'C' staff.
I am perforced to bring to your kind notice that unless
a immediate relief is not arranged to mitigate the sufferings
of the Group 'C' staff, we have no other alternate except
to launch series of trade union programmes.
It is requested to consider the proposals and cause
orders at the earliest and maintain peace and amity
amidst the workers who are carrying forward the
department with a new dimensions by their hard work.
A line in reply about the action taken is highly
solicited.
Letter No. P/4-5/RPLI, Date: 15 November 2006
addressed to Smt. Jyotsna Diesh, Secretary,
Department of Posts.
Spot payment of incentives to BPM / Agents
for RPLI work - reg.
This is regarding the spot payment of incentive to
RPLI Agents i.e. all BPMs / SPMs / SDI / ASPOs for
the business secured by them.
Despite the fact that incentive for procuring RPLI
business is prescribed in the Directorate letter No.
35-15/78-LI (vol. III) dated 21-08-96 and 27-11-96, the
incentive money has not been paid to the officials for
years together due to dearth of funds and non allotment
to circles. In many circles, the incentive is not paid
over two to three years and the officials who secured
business become frustrated and ill motivated due to
non payment of the dues.
It is pertinent to mention that the incentive amount
payable is based on the business secured by the
official. As such there should be no link to pay the
incentive with allotment of funds etc. It should be paid
i n the form of Producti ve-Li nked i ncenti ve
simultaneously in order to motivate the officials for
better business productivity.
It is, therefore, requested to delink the incentive
payment from the present procedure of allotment of
funds and the incentives be paid on the spot without
link to funds allotment which will certainly improve the
business activities in RPLI at rural areas.
A line in reply about the action taken is highly
appreciated.
Letter No. P/4-4/OTA/MR/TE, Date: 15 November
2006 addressed to The Secretary, Department of
Posts.
Allotment of additional funds under head OTA
/ MR / TE - reg.
Kindly refer to this union letter P/58-2/Funds dated
18-09-2006 on the subject mentioned above and sorry
to inform you that neither the letter is acknowledged
nor any action taken so far to allot additional funds
under head OTA / MR / TE etc. For example the OTA
bills since from August 2005 pending undisbursed in
Orissa Circle due to paucity of funds. The same is
the position for TA / MR claim also.
It is therefore once again requested to intervene
into the matter personally and ensure adequate
allotment of funds to clear the pending bills under head
OTA / MR / TA bills at the earliest.
Soliciting for immediate response,
Letter No. P/4-1/LSG/HSG.II/HSG.I Prom, Date:
15 November 2006 addressed to Smt. Jyotsna Diesh,
Secretary, Department of Posts.
Promotion to LSG / HSG.II / HSG.I - the
problems existed - request clarificatory
instructions - reg.
Apropos discussion on the subject earlier, I am
per-forced to bring to your kind notice about the
following problems being faced at field level in respect
of grant of LSG / HSG.II promotions.
(i) In many circles like Orissa, the notional promotion
to LSG upto 2002 has not been accorded. The
one time measure to grant HSG.I promotion by
relaxing the condition has not been implemented.
Resultantly, the FTP qualified officials alone are
officiating / holding in all HSG.I posts. A clear
injustice to the senior entitled officials.
(ii) In many circles, the 1/3rd vacancies pertaining to
15 BHARTIYA POST JANUARY, 2007
seniority quota in LSG has not been accorded
after 2002. This will have adverse impact while
granting HSG.II promotions. The seniors entitled
for HSG.II promotions will be left out and the FTP
qualified officials will override the seniors in the
promotions. It should be ensured that the
promotions under 1/3rd quota should be granted
on notional basis form the date of their entitlement
and their seniority position in the LSG gradation
list should be protected. An updated gradation
list as on 01-07-2006 may be issued by all circles
incorporating all the officials promoted to LSG upto
01-07-2006 by duly ensuring all the vacant posts
in LSG are filled.
(iii) As per the provisions contained in Volume IV, all
promotions upto HSG.I are based on seniority cum
fitness. After the issue of 18-05-2006 revised
Recruitment Rules notification wherein it contained
that the LSG / HSG.II promotions are by selection,
some circle heads are adhering the selection method
for LSG promotion by assessing the CRs for five
years of such officials before according promotional
orders. This has resulted denial of promotion to many
entitled officials. A clarificatory order to this extent
to describe the LSG / HSG.II promotions be based
on seniority-cum-fitness is requested.
(iv) The notional promotion to LSG from 1986 to 2002
were granted treating the LSG as a divisional cadre.
Resultantly, the following problems were crippled:-
(a) As per the provisions of Postal Manual Vol. IV,
the combined circle gradation list of Postal
Assistants is the basis for LSG promotion. This
has been sidelined and the Rule 38 transferees
have been denied LSG promotion. As such, the
senior Rule 38 transferees, based on the Circle
Gradation List be granted notional LSG promotion
with retrospective due date or allow modification
of LSG at par with their juniors which will alone
render justice to the senior aggrieved officials.
(b) Since the LSG notional promotion was granted
on divisional basis, in some divisions due to more
number of LSG posts in existence, the juniors
could get LSG get promotion. Due to dearth of
LSG Posts, other divisions, the juniors could not
get LSG promotion which will have adverse effect
in the HSG.II / HSG.I promotion. Modification of
LSG by granting notional promotion will be the
only solution in mitigating the anomaly prevailed
due to various changes in procedures in the LSG
/ HSG.II Recruitment Rules.
(c) We are of the firm opinion that LSG should be a
circle cadre and postings be considered within
the divisions where the officials are working. There
is no need to change the present position and
LSG be retained as circle cadre only. It is further
requested that LSG officials may be allotted to
divisions and the Divisional Supdt. may be
authorised to issue posting orders to LSG officials.
(v) A combined gradation of all Postal Assistants in
circle should be prepared as per Rule viz. date of
confirmation, thereafter DCCS and now according
to merit as per Department of Personnel and
Training OM No. 20011/5/90-Estt (O) dated 04-
11-92. There is no need to prepare the circle
gradation list separately for mufussil units and city
units. A circle gradation list of Postal Assistants
as a whole will be sufficient. This work should be
updated and circulated within a stipulated time.
(vi) The pay scales of HSG.II & BCR are one and the
same. After the modification of FR 22 on 30-08-
89, any official holding / drawing the pay of HSG.II
on regular basis even for a single day can very
well officiate in HSG.I, as these promotions are
in the same general line. The officiating pay for
the officiation in HSG.I posts by the BCR officials
have been denied in many circles. This should
be clarified. It is pertinent to mention that non-
BCR FTP LSG officials are given chance to
officiate in HSG.I posts by sidelining the senior
officials in many places.
(vii) In some circles like Tamil Nadu, West Bengal
etc., some officials were allowed to officiate in
HSG.I posts for more than one year and orders
for the regul ari sati on of such offi ci ati ng
arrangements beyond one year has been referred
to Directorate by the respective circles. The due
officiating pay had neither been drawn nor taken
for fixation of pension and other retirement benefits.
Early orders are requested.
(viii) According to the Department of Personnel and
Training OM No. AB-14017/2/97-Estt (R) dated
25-05-98 regarding Amendment to Service /
Recruitment Rules, it is permitted to accord
promotion to the higher cadre than the next higher
cadre (viz. from LSG to HSG.I promotion straight
away) if the official completed 8 years of service.
If this analogy would have applied at least many
LSG officials would have been promoted to HSG.I
by this time; Moreover as per the Recruitment
Rules the eligibility condition for promotion from
LSG to HSG.II: is 3 years and the same three
years for HSG.II to HSG.I. As such, the officials
16 BHARTIYA POST JANUARY, 2007
who rendered service in LSG either on notional or
regular may immediately be promoted to HSG.I
in case if he completed six years service in LSG.
The filling up of HSG.I posts should not be delayed
on any account.
It is requested to consider the above items and
cause clarificatory orders to fill up all vacant LSG /
HSG.II and HSG.I posts immediately and without
further delay.
A line in reply about the action taken is highly
appreciated.
Letter No. P/2-13/Aurangabad, Date: 22 November
2006 addressed to Smt. Jyotsna Diesh, Secretary,
Department of Posts.
Apparent defalcation in the contribution to
Prime Minister's Relief Fund in Aurangabad
Region, Maharashtra Circle - reg.
Ref.: Your letter No. 16-108/2002-SR dated 28-04-
2004
Apropos reference, it is dismayed to note that
the result of the action taken by the vigilance branch
on this major scam has not been informed so far
to this union. The case is pursuing by this union
since 2001.
It is now learnt that the department has replied to
Shri B.G. Tamhankar, Mumbai-58 as a reply under
the Right to Information Act 2005, that recovery has
been made from the delinquents who defrauded the
voluntary contribution made by the officials to the
Prime Minister's Relief Fund.
It is not known whether any enquiry was instituted
against those who defrauded the money and what
kind of action was taken against those culprits who
are dare to misappropriate the Prime Minister's Relief
Fund itself.
It is our firm opinion that as the misused /
defrauded amount exceeds more than lakhs, the case
should be remitted to CBI / for further enquiry to curb
such kind of frauds in future at any place. Otherwise,
the staff will loose faith in contributing their mite for
the noble cause.
A line in reply about the action taken is highly
appreciated.
Letter No. P/2-12/Or Cle, Date: 14 November 2006
addressed to Shri P.T.S. Kumar, DDG (P),
Department of Posts.
Non-according notional LSG promotion - case
of Orissa Circle - reg.
It is rather dismayed to note that the exercise of
granting notional promotion to LSG, HSG.II and HSG.I
for the vacancies prior to February 2002 has not been
taken place in Orissa Circle and all the HSG.I and
HSG.II posts are being officiated only by the FTP
qualified officials.
This is a sorry state of affair to hear that the one
time relaxation for HSG.I has also not been carried
out in Orissa Circle and all the posts remain unfilled
up on regular basis. This causes a serious concern.
It is, therefore, requested to cause instructions
with time schedule to release the notional LSG list
since 1986 to 2006 at first and grant HSG.II and HSG.I
promotions immediately as per the earlier orders of
the Directorate relaxing the conditions.
It is further requested to relieve the FTP officials
officiating in HSG.I posts by deploying the seniors who
are becoming eligible during the process of LSG
notional promotion.
A line in reply about the action taken is highly

Holding of JAO (Postal) Part -II examination -
reg.
Ref.: Your letter No. 3 (3) /99/PA-Admn.1/411
dated 08-09-2006
Apropos reference, I wish to being to your kind
notice once again that due to non conduct of JAO
Part II examination, the fate of the JAO Part -I qualified
candidates upto 1994-95 become under question.
Their efforts and success in Part -I exam will become
futile and waste if they are not permitted to appear for
Part -II examination.
There is no dispute that there is a long waiting list
of the JAO qualified candidates but that may not be a
ruse to deny the fair chance of coming out successful
in the Part -II examination of the candidates who have
already qualified in Part -I. They may be given a fair
chance to write the Part -II exam and the successful
candidates may be placed under the wait listed
candidates which is already in existence. The number
of such officials will also be a minimum.
It is, therefore, requested to reconsider the decision
and conduct Part -II exams for the candidates who have
successfully qualified in the JAO part -I exam earlier.
A line in reply about the action taken is highly

Authorisation of all LSG / HSG.II / MDGs offices
to issue cheques - reg.
17 BHARTIYA POST JANUARY, 2007
Ref.: This union letter No. P/2-13/Bhtinda dated
09-10-2006
A kind reference is invited to this union letter cited
above in the reference wherein this union requested to
authorise all LSG / HSG.II offices of Punjab Circle to
issue cheques as per the practice adhered in Haryana
to avoid unwarranted delay in the disbursement of
payments in SB transactions.
Now it is brought to our notice that in many other
circles also like Orissa the similar problem exists.
The Directorate guidelines to authorise all MDGs to
issue cheques vide your letter No. 61-38/2001-SB dated
01-05-2002 has not been implemented in many circles
so far. Not even a single MDG has so far been
authorised in Orissa Circle.
It is, therefore, requested to cause suitable
instructions to all the circles to authorise the SPMs
above LSG to issue cheques for SB transactions which
will minimise the delay time and its wastage.

Counting of Special Allowance for pay

reg.
A kind attention is invited to the letter No. 9 (1)/
2004-PA Admn. I/501 to 504 dated 29-10-2006 from
Shri T.K. Mitra, ADG (PA and Admn) of Directorate
wherein informed that the Special Pay which is now
called as Special Allowance drawn in lieu of higher
pay scale may be taken into account for fixing pay
under ACP to the JAO examination qualified

The above said instructions were issued in
consultation with DOP&T and the same and similar
analogy should be applied in the case of PO and RMS
Accountants also and their Special Allowance should
be taken for fixation of pay in the higher cadre on
promotion.
It is, therefore, requested to cause immediate

Acceptance of cheque issued in favour of the
depositor or in turn in favour of Postmaster -
clarification sought for - reg.
A kind attention is invited to the Directorate letter
No. F.No. SBPG/Misc-4/2006 dated 04-09-2006 (SB
Order No. 20/2006) read with letter No. SBPG / Misc
-4/2006 (SB Order No. 22/2006) dated 20-09-2006
regarding addition to Rule 11 (3) of POSB Vol. II. The
following doubts raised at field level may please be
clarified.
i) There is no clarification for the basic point of
objection viz. acceptance of cross cheque
(Account Payee) in favour of individual and in favour
of any Postmaster for the investment is regular or
not;
ii) In the order dated 04-09-2006, it is observed while
substituting Rule 11 (3) of POSB Manual Vol. II,
the endorsement to be made by the applicant when
the cheque is drawn in favour of Postmaster and
also about the cheque drawn in favour of applicant
vice-versa and was given effect from 15-09-2006.
However, the portion of cheque drawn in favour of
applicant and endorsement to be made by the
applicant had been omitted in the subsequent order
dated 20-09-2006 which was given effect from 30-
09-2006.
This has resulted doubts in the field level about
the endorsements to be made for the cheques in favour
of applicant and this has to be clarified in clear terms.
It is, therefore, requested to issue necessary
clarifications in this regard and also about the disposal
of cross account payee cheque, so that, the officials
deployed at the counter will not find any difficulties.

(ii) Invigilators - Rs. 20/- per session.
(iii) Clerk - Rs. 25/- per day
(iv) Group 'D'- Rs. 15/- per day.
To remuneration is very meagre while comparing
the strenuous job carried out by the officials. Despite

compensatory off, atleast the honorarium sanctioned
shall reach atleast to the extent of satisfactions of
those employees engaging for this purpose.

Letter No. P/2-1/Ranchi, Dated: 30-11-2006
addressed to Smt. Jyotsna Diesh, Secretary,
Department of Posts.
Prolonged continuation of suspension of 13
officials-case of Ranchi Division in Jharkhand
Circle-reg.
It is brought to our notice that about 13 Postal
Assistants who were recruited in 1996/97 were placed
under suspension from October 2005 by the SSPOs,
Ranchi Division based on the investigation unleashed
by the CBI authorities about the genuineness of their
educational certificate.
After interaction and enquiry with the officials, the
CBI had filed charge-sheets against those officials and
the enquiry is under trail. Meanwhile, it could be seen
from the charge-sheet filed by the CBI in case No. RC-
19 (A)/2005 (R) against Shri Vijay Ranjan Prasad, Postal
Assistant, Ranchi that after investigation of the case,
adequate evidence could not be collected to substantiate
allegations under provision of preventions of Corruption
Act 1988 against him, the copy of which is enclosed.
Similar is the position of all the charged officials
and they are still under suspension even after the
lapse of one year which is against to the spirit of
Directorate guidelines.
As the CBI had filed charge-sheet, after the
investigation, it is needless to mention that the charged
officials should have been reinstated into service in
the month of April 2006 itself. At least they would have
been reinstated at least after one year as per the
categorical Directorate orders issued in 2003.
The officials are put into great hardships besides
mental agony and torture. The officials may be
reinstated and allowed to work till the outcome of the
CBI final investigation in their case.
It is, therefore, requested to cause instructions to
the Chief Postmaster General, Jharkhand Circle to
reinstate the officials immediately and render justice.

20-09-2006.
The continuance of the post is very much essential
and it is requested to consider the same and accord
approved for the post and also to fill up the post on
regular basis.
A line in reply about the action taken is highly
appreciated.
Letter No. P/2-15/NE Cle, Dated: 20-11-2006
addressed to Smt. Jyotsna Diesh, Secretary,
Department of Posts.
Allotment of quota in the Inspector Post exam
vacancies statewise- requested- case of North
East Circle-reg.
Ref.: Directorate letter No. A-34013/6/2006-DE
dated 15-11-2006.
A kind attention is invited to the Directorate letter
referred above in which all Heads of Circles had been
asked to furnish the list of SC/ST candidates who had
availed of the concessions in the IPOs examination
2006 under relaxed standard.
It is most pertinent to mention that the North East
Circle is consisting of six state Governments and also
most of the parts of the postal circle are in hill areas.
Therefore, there are more number of ST officials working
in the North East Circle. As such considering the North
East as consistence of six states and allot more
vacancies for the ST category in the IPO exam which
will redress the grievances of the officials.
A line in reply about the action taken is highly

Letter No. P/2-19/Cuddalore, Date: 18 December
2006 addressed to Smt. Jyotsna Diesh,
Secretary, Department of Posts.
Collapse of congenial atmosphere at
Cuddalore division in Tamil Nadu Circle - reg.
After the joining of the present SPOs, Sri K.
Ramalingam, the harmonic atmosphere of Cuddalore
divion has totally been spoiled and the agitation by all
the circle unions (NFPE, FNPO & BPEF) has not been
given due weight by the Circle Administration also.
After his joining for each and every welfare
measures or to get justice in normal course, everybody
is to knock the door of regional / Circle Administration.
A simple scrutiny of settlement of medical and TA
claims after his joining clearly shows his anti-welfare
attitude. The subordinates and officials are treated by
him as slaves.
19 BHARTIYA POST JANUARY, 2007
Frequently he takes to blame his subordinate staff
alleging non cooperation for his failure in right
administration. the latest irony is his deputies like
ASPOs & HSG.I Head Postmaster (IPO line) have
been transferred somewhere else due to his vindictive
activities fully endorsed by Circle Administration also.
One cannot transfer causes of his inability to each
and everyone coming across him. The latest transfer
of even IPO line officials itself really shows that the
SPOs is unfit to carry out any administration with the
support of his immediate deputies. It is apt to mention
that the postmaster has ti me and agai n be
complemented by the administration in improving the
business of IMT there.
The SPOs, Cuddalore used to pass derogatory
remarks against each and every reputed leaders in
the meetings in a jocularly manner. Even the Father
of the Nation has not been spared. He commented
Gandhiji as 'useless'. The Circle Administration also
usually without any remarks set aside the remarks
despite that there is a demand by the staff unions for
enquiry of the episode and prosecute the guilty which
is hanging over one year.
In settlement of pensions & personal claims, he
shows least interest as most of the recent pension
settlements were noticed to be settled after a much
delay of one or two years. Most of the personal
claims are not settled properly but protracted on one
pretext or the other and the officials are to look for
justice for each and every occasion by sending
appeals to region / circle. The modifications ordered
in the R.T. on every occasion shows his total apathy
to the interest of the staff.
The agitation of all unions / federations at divisional
and circle level cannot be brushed aside as a farce.
The recent shifting of not only the Divisional Secretary
of AIPEU Group 'C' from his APM Accounts position
but also the administrative officers like ASPOs /
Postmaster HsG.I (IPO line) also show his unbridled
and vindictive activities spoiling the entire atmosphere
of the division.
The Circle Administration without minding the
genuine grievances of the staff and the agitation of all
the circle unions, sticking to the false prestige is
protecting this sadist officer whose service was all long
notorious and anti-worker.
The Postal Joint Council of Action comprising of
all the unions had further decided to launch indefinite
strike demanding the shifting of this officer and also to
arrest and halt the menance of closure of post offices,
merger of divisions, abolition of posts, combination of
duties etc. in the last week of January 2006 which
should be taken note of.
Further, I wish to state that the central union cannot
remain as a silent spectator in case if there is no
improvement in the situation of Tamil Nadu Circle which
is existing since October 2006. The earlier indefinite
strike was postponed based on your assurance and
also as per the conciliation talks of the Labour
Commissioner, Chennai. In nutshell, Tamil Nadu is
burning and there is total unrest prevailing.
To restore harmonious atmosphere, allowing the
staff to work peacefully and efficiently, Shri K.
Ramalingam, may be removed from Cuddalore division
immediately. Otherwise the situation will become
worst from bad. Similarly all the measures of closure
of the post offices, merger of divisions etc. may be
dropped and the unions may be consulted to restore
peace and amity in the circle.
The copy of the joint memorandum submitted by
all the circle unions to the Chief Postmaster General,
Tamil Nadu Circle is enclosed for your effective
intervention and set right matters immediately as if
fire on house.
A line in reply about the action taken is highly
solicited.
DA: As above
Letter No. P/4-3/Exam, Date: 18 December 2006
addressed to Smt. Jyotsna Diesh, Secretary,
Department of Posts.
Non conducting of Group B examination since
2003 - reg.
On the pretext of CAT case, no Group B
examination has been conducted since 2003, depriving
the chances of many bright officials aspiring from Group
B promotion.
The department has neither gone for appeal nor
brought out updated version of postal manuals
prescribed for the examination. It is a gross neglect
of the interest of the so many bright officials.
Under the present context of modernisation with
a see change in the printing industry, the printing of
volumes within a short span of three months does not
pose any problem or otherwise as in the case of
Volume VII & V, we can authorise the publishers like
Swamys Publishers, Nabhi Publishers etc. to
accomplish this task.
A pertinent point to be noted in this regard is that
after the 5th Pay Commission, the department,
unmindful of the amendment of the recruitment rules
by due notification with the approval of nodal ministries,
has plunged to controversial issue of orders permitting
20 BHARTIYA POST JANUARY, 2007
only those officials who are holding standard LSG post
on regular basis, blocking out all TBOP / BCR officials.
As everybody knows, the bunch of Group B officers
passed Group B examination when they were holding
TBOP / BCR status and many of them retired. To deny
such benefits available to the TBOP / BCR officials, a
sudden switch over to standard LSG criteria has neither
been consulted with service union nor has amended
the recruitment rules with the due approval of nodal
ministry.
Hence, this union urges to conduct the Group B
exam immediately permitting the officials right from
TBOP.
A line in reply about the action taken is highly
solicited.
Letter No. P/2-16/Bhubaneswar, Date: 18
December 2006 addressed to Smt. Jyotsna Diesh,
Secretary, Department of Posts.
Grant of assistance / leave - case of Sri
Pranabananda, Postal Assistant,
Bhubaneswar Division, Orissa Circle - reg.
Ref.: This union letter No. P/50-4/Welfare dated
25-05-2006
Apropos reference, it is constraint to note that the
official is still facing recovery of over payment of his
pay & allowances.
The above said official while working as Postal
Assistant, Suryanagar sustained serious injuries and
lost his right hand palm completely due to the blasting
of bomb in the postal parcel on 03-01-2002 in course
of his discharge of duties and had been under treatment
from 04-01-2002 to 26-05-2004.
Now the Circle Administration has not treated the
period of treatment fully as special disability leave and
treated the first 4 months with full pay and further 20
months with the HPL and thereafter leave admissible
to the official. Resultantly the recovery to the tune of
Rs. 95000/- towards half pay leave is being faced by
the official.
Since the disabilities caused by bomb blast
during the course of discharge of duties, it amounts
to disability caused by terrorist activities. Hence, all
the special concessions on monetary benefits
available for Government servants affected by terrorist
activities may be extended to this official. The
recovery of overpayment of leave salary may be
ordered to be kept in abeyance and considering the
plight of the victim of bomb blast, such recovery may
be waived and condoned.
If any immediate disposal in this case is not
feasible, the case may be considered for presidential
sanction in relaxation of norms showing a utmost
compassion to the victim. Besides he may be directed
to appear before specialist for further recommendations
of treatment on the rest, the entire period of which
may be condoned as a special dispensation.
A line in reply about the action taken is highly
appreciated.
Letter No. P/4-1/Hindi Typist, Date: 18 December
2006 addressed to Smt. Jyotsna Diesh,
Secretary, Department of Posts.
On the Job training for Hindi Typist in
divisional offices on their absorption as Postal
/ Sorting Assistants - reg.
Ref.: Directorate letter No. 7-3/2000-PG.II dated
26-03-2003
Per reference to Directorate letter cited merging
the post of Hindi Typist in the divisional office with Postal
Assistants, my union wishes to point out that the
condition 'C' under para 2 of the order is deemed to be
on the job training on the analogy of interchangeable
transfer of Postal Assistants and Sorting Assistants.
For whom only, 15 days of the job training is prescribed
instead of full pledged institutional training.
But, the Chief Postmaster General, Himachal
Pradesh Circle, Shimla misconstruing the condition 2
(c) has directed four of such Hindi Typists to undergo
full induction training for Postal Assistant / Sorting
Assistant in his letter No. STA / 26-76/87 dated 17-
10-06.
Hence, my union requests to issue a clarification to
para 2 (c) of the Directorate order to all concerned and
also to order to keep the orders of the Chief Postmaster
General, Himachal Pradesh Circle in abeyance.
Letter No. P/4-5/SB Form, Date: 18 December
2006 addressed to Smt. Jyotsna Diesh, Secretary,
Department of Posts.
Uniform printing of SB-7 (a) form - reg.
Recently, the department has prescribed a
separate form of SB 7 A for closure of accounts and
the SB 7 for normal withdrawal.
It is brought to our notice by our members that
different PSDs are printing different forms with different
versions. In order to avoid any ambiguity and to have
uniformity, the Directorate itself may communicate the
bilingual specimen forms for printing instead of in
English only.
While communicating the new bilingual form, a
separate column may be provided for date stamp
impression.
A line in reply about the action taken is highly
solicited.
21 BHARTIYA POST JANUARY, 2007
Letter No. P/4-5/PLI, Date: 12 December 2006
addressed to Smt. Jyotsna Diesh, Secretary,
Department of Posts.
Utilisation of the services of PRI (P) & SPMs
for procurement of PLI business - reg.
Ref.: Your letter No. 28-5/2000-LI dated 13-09-2006
While thanking the good gesture in accepting our
demand, and authorising the PRI (P) & selected Postal
Assistants for procurement of PLI / RPLI business
vide the letter cited above in the reference, I wish to
bring the following for remedial action:-
(i) In stead of calling for willingness and subjected to
recommendations of the divisional superintendents,
let all the willing PAs, SPMs, PRI (P)s, M.Es be
allowed to procure PLI business without any
differentiation;
(ii) In case of selection, it should mean by conducting
a written examination and not by the personal
recommendations of the SP / SSPOs;
(iii) If the number of officials are to be restricted, then
let the tenure of all DO (PLI)s who are holding the
tenure posts be strictly followed and no extension be
granted so that it will pave way of fair chances to other
officials as well.
It is an irony that the SPMs are being targeted to
procure RPLI business at an unimaginable levels,
whereas in the case of PLI, the divisions are resorting
to restrict officials for procuring PLI and that too
resorting to recommendations of officials to their choice
and pleasure.
It is, therefore, requested to consider and cause
revised orders to permit all willing SPMs / PRI (P)s for
procuring PLI business by conducting a simple test
about 'know how' on the subject.
A line in reply about the action taken is highly
appreciated.

Letter No. PF/01(e)/2006, Dated: 29-11-2006
addressed to Smt. Jyotsna Diesh, Secretary, DoP.
Setting up of Judicial Commission / Committee for
GDS.
Your kind attention is invited to our letter No. PF/
15/2006 dated 23rd October 2006 demanding setting
up of Judicial Commission / Committee for G.D.S.
on the basis of our agreement reached with the Dept.
of Posts during indefinite strike of Postal Employees
from 7th December, to 10th December 1993.
It was revealed by you to day that a Committee
headed by a Retired Officer of the Dept. of Posts has
been approved by the Hon'ble Minister (C).
It was an agreement during 1993 that an officer
from the Department either retired or serving would
not be heading the E.D. Commission/Committee
Consequent on the agreement Justice Charanjit Talwar
was appointed as Chairman of the E.D. Committee
during Vth CPC. Now the decision to appoint an officer
(Retired) as Chairman of E.D. Commission/Committee
is in violations of the agreement.
It is therefore decided to incorporate the demand of
setting up of Judicial Commission in the Charter of
demand for one day nationwide general strike on 14th
December, 2006 for which strike Notice has been served
to you today.
We would urge up on you to intervene in this matter
urgently and ensure setting up of a Judicial
Commission of G.D.S. and create a congenial
atmosphere for averting for further trade union action
settlement of this justified demand.
With regards.

24 BHARTIYA POST JANUARY, 2007
CAT CHENNAI OBSERVES

CENTRAL ADMINISTRATIVE TRIBUNAL
MADRAS BENCH
Tuesday the Twenty First-Day of November
Two Thousand Six
PRESENT
The Hon'ble Mr. Ashok S. Karamadi, Judicial Member
AND
The Hon'ble Mr. R. Ganesan, Administrative Member.
Original Application No. 201/2006
P. Ramadoss Applicant
No. 2, Elangovadigal Street
Patchiamman Nagar
Zamin Pallavaram
Chennai-600 043.
Vs.
1. Union of India
The Principal Chief Postmaster General
Tamil Nadu Circle
Anna Salai
Chennai - 600 002.
2. The Senior Superintendent
Railway Mail Services Respondents
Chennai Sorting Division
Egmore
Chennai - 600 008.
3. Shri C. Baskaran
Now LSG Accountant
Previously LSG Supervisor
Working in the O/o. Head Record Officer
(Accounts) Chennai Sorting Division
Egmore Chennai-600 008.
Counsel for the applicant Mr. K.M. Ramesh
Counsel for the respondents Mr. R. Priyakumar
(Order pronounced by the Hon'ble Mr. R.
Ganesan, Administrative Member)
The applicant working as Accountant in Chennai
Sorting Division H.R.O. Branch Chennai (on deputation
to AMPC Chennai) has sought the following reliefs :
"i) to call for the records from the files of the second
respondent relating to the order issued by him bearing
Memo No. B-4/LSG Accountant dated at Chennai the
1-3-2006 (Ann. A-8) and to quash the same as it is
illegal, arbitrary, unconstitutional, unsustainable and
ii) to i ssue consequenti al di recti on to the
respondents 1 and 2 herein to consider the case of
the applicant for promotion as LSG Accountant in
Chennai Sorting Division, HRO Accounts.
iii) to pass such other order or directions this Hon'ble
Tribunal may deem fit and proper in the circumstances
of the case and thus render justice."
2. The applicant joined the Department of Post, RMS
Division as Sorting Assistant on 14-9-1981 in Chennai
Sorting Division, passed PO & RMS Accountant
Examination in 1992 and opted for Accounts line and
working in that line since 1994. According to him, the
LSG and HSG-II posts are filled up by promotion as per
Selection Grade Recruitment Rules, 1976. The post of
LSG Accountant has to be filled up from among the
officials having PO&RMS Accountant qualification on the
basis of their date of qualifying the PO&RMS Accountant
Examination in accordance with the Postal Manual
Volume IV under Rule 276 and 277. The LSG Accounts
cadre remains as a separate entity as a circle cadre
even when general line posts became divisionalised.
3. With the introduction of Fast Track Promotion for
dated 26-2-2002, the LSG and HSG-II recruitment rules
were amended by way of notification. However, Rule
276 of Vol. IV and the LSG Recruitment Rules, 2002
do not have any mention about the APM/AHRO
Accounts post and the method of filling up the post of
APM/AHRO Accounts. While clarifying the issue, the
DG' s l etter dated 28-1-2003 stated that "APM
Accounts post are to be treated as norm based LSG
Posts and are to be filled up strictly from among PAS
and SAS who have qualified in PO & RMS Accounts
Examination. Also, item 16 of Rules for Recruitment
to Selection Grade Post dated 30-9-1976 provides.
"for promotion to LSG Accountant from among
Clerks or Sorters in Railway Mail Service Offices with
10 years regular service in the grade who have passed
the Post Offices and RMS service Accountants
Examination."
The said Rule 16 has not been amended varied or
modified in the 2002 LSG Recruitment Rules and the
1976 Rules still holds good. In such circumstances,
the clarification issued by the Directorate in Letter No.
137-10/96-SPB-11 dated 28-1-2003 to the effect that
for manning these posts, officials promoted to LSG
having Accounts qualifications may be considered is
clearly illegal and the said clarification is contrary to
the Recruitment Rules. The second respondent cannot
act on the basis of the said clarification issued by the
Directorate which is not in consonance with the
Recruitment Rules. It is by now well settled that any
clarificatory order to the original order cannot take away
the rights given by the original order. In this connection
reliance is placed on the decision of the Hon'ble CAT
Mumbai Bench in O.A. No. 592 of 2004 dated 19-8-
2005."
4. The applicant further added that as the provisions
25 BHARTIYA POST JANUARY, 2007
contained in LSG Recruitment Rules, 1976 for LSG
Accountants still hold good. The following will be
applied to them :-
"1. LSG Accountant is a separate cadre and shall be
filled up as per the Recruitment Rules and Rules in
the Volume IV based on the year of passing the Exam.
2. The seniority of the APM/AHRO Accounts shall
be decided based on their assumption in the LSG post
in the Accounts Cadre.
3. Once the Accountant, opted out from the Accounts
line on his promotion too TBOP and opt to work in
General line, he shall have no right to claim or post in
the APM Accountant Cadre at later stage as per the
Recruitment Rules."
5. The applicant submitted that officials qualified in
the Fast Track Promotion examination conducted as
per revised Recruitment Rules 2002 have appeared
for the vacancies pertaining to General line and they
have no right to claim in the supervisory posts
belonging to Accounts line. If there is mention that
the Accountant can also write for the Fast Track
Promotion Examination, many would have applied. The
vacancies were notified for only general line. The
Department has not constituted DPC so far to fill up
LSG Posts among PO & RMS Accountant officials
as per the rules. The applicant is senior enough to be
promoted for LSG had the DPC been held in time. He
was ordered to work in a higher post as AHRO
Accountant. While so, the second respondent had
issued the order posting the third respondent as LSG
Accountant in HRO Accounts, Chennai and the
applicant who has been ordered to work in the said
post has been reverted as Accountant. The applicant
has passed the PO&RMS Accountant Examination
in the year 1992 itself with his position at No. 19 in the
divisional gradation list whereas the third respondent
who is far junior to him in position No. 26 having passed
the examination in 1995 has been posted as AHRO
Accounts by reverting him. Further the applicant has
been promoted to BCR whereas the third respondent
is yet to get the same having not completed 26 years
of service. The third respondent has been posted on
the only consideration that he has passed the
examination for Fast Track Promotion. The posting of
third respondent not only denied the applicant and the
other senior officials in promotion to the post of LSG
Accountant but also took away their further promotional
chances and hence the O.A.
6. The respondents in the reply denied the allegations
made in the O.A. They submitted that the applicant
was ordered to work as LSG Accountant (AHRO
Accounts) on officiating basis vide order dated 15-7-
2005 but he did not join the post on personal grounds.
As the post cannot be kept vacant for long, the third
respondent who had submitted a request for being
posted as LSG Accountant and who has passed the
Fast Track Promotion was posted in accordance with
the clarification as Sl. No. 15 of DG's letter dated
28-1-2003 vide order dated 1-3-06. Even though earlier
vacancies in LSG Accountants cadre were filled up
by those who have passed PO & RMS Accountant
examination according to their year of passing, after
the clarification No. 15 dated 28-1-2003, officials who
have passed LSG examination and posted to LSG
having the accounts qualification can be considered.
The posting of third respondent as LSG Accountant is
not a promotion and it is just a transfer from LSG norm
based General line post to Accounts line post. As for
the contention of the applicant that there is no
amendment to the erstwhile LSG Recruitment Rules
in the revised Recruitment Rules, 2002, they stated
that the Directorate, which is the highest authority of
the Department of Post has issued the clarificatory
order and hence it holds good. Therefore, the
respondents pleaded for the dismissal of the O.A.
7. The applicant has filed the rejoinder reiterating the
averments made earlier in the O.A. Further he added
that the Fast Track examination was conducted only
for General Li ne vacanci es whi ch has been
categorically accepted by the second respondent in
his letter No. 13-4/LSG/ACCTS dated 12-10-2005
addressed to the Principle Chief PMG, Chennai. 9
more officials qualified in PO&RMS Accountant
exami nati on are wai ti ng to be posted as LSG
Accountant between Sl. No. 17 and 25 who have
passed the examination between 1988 & 1994. The
second respondent has deviated from the existing
practice by posting Respt. No. 3 when admittedly he
is working in General Line.
8. The official respondents have filed additional reply
confirming their submissions in the earlier reply. They
stated that the Respondent 3 was posted based on
the clarificatory order issued by the Directorate. The
Recruitment Rules for LSG Posts is changed from
time to time as on date the rules are that it is a circle
cadre and to be filled up in seniority in clerical cadre
and no weightage is there for PO&RMS Accountant
qualified officials. A clarification has been sought from
the Directorate for filling up of LSG Accountant
vacancies. In the meantime, the posting of R-3 has
been made in LSG Accountant posts on transfer from
one LSG to another. This issue will be decided on
permanent basis on receipt of the clarification from
the Directorate. The respondents also filed an
additional affidavit affirming their earlier stand.
10. We have heard the learned counsel for the
applicants and the respondents and perused the
relevant records carefully.
11. The learned counsel for the applicant stressed on
his submission that the recruitment rules of 1976
26 BHARTIYA POST JANUARY, 2007
remain unchanged and the law being a clarificatory
order cannot supersede recrui tment rul es, the
applicant who is senior to the third respondent has to
be considered for the norm based LSG Accounts Line
post and the posting of R-3 instead, who was qualified
in the Fast Track Promotion General Line examination,
is irregular. The respondents relief on the clarificatory
order from the Directorate dated 28-1-2003 wherein
the clarification given under item No. 10 by which "APM
Accounts posts are to be treated as norm based LSG
posts and are to be filled up strictly form among PAs
and SAs who have qualified in PO&RMS Accountant
examination" has been annulled by the Directorate
letter dated 24-2-2005 thus leaving the clarification
under item No. 15 as final and which is as under :
Points raised
At present PO&RMS Accountant in BCR/TBOP
are being posted as APM (accounts/AHRO (Accounts).
Whether the same procedure is to be followed or any
official who has been promoted under Fast Track
Scheme can be posted in this post irrespective of
whether he is a qualified accountant or not. If only
qualified Accountant are to be posted it may be
intimated whether all such norm-based posts are to
be kept out of purview of Fast Track Promotion
Scheme.
Clarification
For manning these posts officials promoted to LSG
having Accounts qualification may be considered.
(emphasis added)
Thus, the respondent acted on this clarification.
However the applicant relying on Hon'ble CAT Mumbai
Bench decision in O.A. No. 592/2004 dated 19-8-2005
which stated that
"the contention of the learned counsel for the
applicant seems to be correct when he has stated
that any clarificatory order cannot takes away the right
given by the original order."
12. This means, the respondents are to act as per
the 30-9-1976. The original recruitment rules for the
LSG Accounts line post is as under :
LSG Accountants Clerks or Sorters in
in Railways Mail Railway Mail Service
Service Offices offices with 10 years
regular service in the
grade, who have passed
the Post Office and
Railway Mail Services
Accountant's Examination
(Emphasis added)
The recruitment rules have not been amended and
hence their application has not been withdrawn.
13. In O.A. No. 807/2005, this Bench while looking
into the changes made in the recruitment rules by the
respondents had occasion to observe that
"It is settled law that a statutory rule is not to be
framed for the convenience of the single individual or
meet the situation or as an one time measure. Any
such change in the recruitment rules, therefore, would
be nothing but an arbitrary exercise of power".
(emphasis added)
The Hon'ble Supreme Court in Supreme Court
Employees' Welfare Association VS. Union of India
reported in 1989 (4) SCC 187 had held that
"The rules are liable to be declared invalid if they
are manifestly unjust or oppressive or outrageous or
directed an unauthorised end or violative of the general
principles of the law of the land or so vague that it
cannot be predicated with certainty as to what is
prohibited by them or so unreasonable that they cannot
be attributed to the power delegated or otherwise
disclose bad faith."
In P.U. Joshi and others Vs. Accountant General,
Ahemadabad and others with Union of India and Others
Vs. Basudeba Dora and others reported in 2003 (2)
SCC 631. their Lordships held
"that promotion pertains to the field of policy and
within the exclusive discretion and jurisdiction of the
State, and the same shall be subject to restrictions
envisaged in the Constitution of India. If the State's
action in framing rules is made in such a way as to
violate the rights guaranteed under Art. 14 and 16 of
the Constitution, the Courts have jurisdiction to set
them aside as held in Supreme Court Employees'
Welfare Association Vs. Union of India referred to
supra."
14. The ratio of the orders cited supra are squarely
applicable in the instant case where the respondents
have by a clarificatory order and without amending the
main recruitment rules, have not only brought Fast
Track qual i fi ed persons to be posted as LSG
Accountants, and in the process have also left a big
gap in the interpretation, much against the interests
of the applicants because of which the respondents
have not conducted any DPC from 2002 for the
applicants even though the clarification No. 15 dated
28-1-2003 can be treated, at best, an enabling provision
only which provides for posting Fast Track LSG
persons with Accounts qualification also in Accounts
line post and that the said clarification did not in any
way prohibit that PO&RMS Accountants from being
posted in Accounts line LSG post, in spite of the fact
a leading question was proposed in the very clarificatory
proposition. In keeping with the Hon'ble Supreme
Court' s deci si on i n P.U. Joshi and Others Vs.
Accountant General Ahmedabad cited supra, we are
constrained to note for our interference the respondents
inaction in not calling for the DPC of PO&RMS
Accountants since 2002 simply on the plea of awaiting
clarification while the Directorate order dated 28-1-2003,
27 BHARTIYA POST JANUARY, 2007
does not warrant any clarification what so ever.
15. At the risk of repetition, it is emphasised that the
clarifications given under item 15 of the circular dated
28-1-2003 is an enabling provision to post those
comi ng from Fast Track source al so as LSG
Accountants posts in addition to their normal channel
of filling up the LSG Accountants posts through PO &
RMS Accounts line. This is confirmed even by the
respondents in his reply in para 12 (ii) of their reply
which is as under:
"It is to be mentioned that the officials who have
passed both the Fast Track and PO & RMS
Accountant Examinations are having every right in the
light of the clarificatory orders issued by the Director
General, Department of Post to ask for transfer to
Lower Selection Grade Accountant post as they are
qualified in PO & RMS Accountant Examination also"
(emphasis added)
16. Though the respondents had made the above
submission to justify posting of Fast Track LSG in
Accounts Line posts, they have also in the process
acknowledged that clarificatory order has not come in
the way of posting PO&RMS Accountants also in LSG
Accountants posts. Having made the submissions as
above, it is surprising the respondents have also chosen
to state the following in their additional affidavit as under:
"3. In furtherance of above, I am to state Time
scale postal assistants with PO & RMS qualification
with ten years service were being considered for the
post of LSG Accountants as per recruitment Rules on
the basis of the Circle seniority. This procedure was
adopted upto 6-2-2002. Consequent on issue of revised
LSG recruitment rules 2002 and again revision of LSG
Recruitment Rules 2006 which did not spell out on
the LSG accounts line, the matter was taken up with
Postal Directorate for clarification. No specific reply
was received from the Postal Directorate so far.
However, in view of clarification dated 7-10-2004 and
also 24-2-2005 received from the Directorate that
officials who are in LSG cadre having PO&RMS
Accountant examination can be posted as APM
(Accounts) and cancelling the orders treating APM
(Accounts) post as norm based LSG Post and filling
up through PAs/SAs who have qualified in PO&RMS
Accountant Exami nati on onl y. In vi ew of thi s
clarification under point 15, posting of LSG officials
with PO&RMS Accountant qualification is only strictly
followed at present." (emphasis added)
17. Thus the above submissions of the respondents
are contradictory to what they had stated in Para 12
(ii) of the reply.
As stated earlier, clarification No. 15 dated 28-1-
2003 is only an enabling provision for posting Fast
Track LSG officials qualified in Accounts also in LSG
Accountants post and that provision has not prohibited
PO&RMS Accountants being considered for the post
LSG Accountants posts. In fact, the wording in the
clarification is only "to consider" official promoted to
LSG having Accounts qualification and nowhere they
have stated that normal channel of promotion for
PO&RMS Accounts is withdrawn. With the law well
settled that clarificatory order cannot supersede
t he r ecr ui t ment r ul es, i t i s amazi ng t he
respondents have chosen to completely ignore the
recruitment rules and acted only on clarificatory
order which is perse illegal and their action cannot
be supported in any way. If Fast Track qualified
LSG with Accounts qualification is the only source
f or f i l l i ng up t he LSG Account ant post s as
practiced by the respondents since 2002, then
these Accounts line vacancies also should have
been reckoned i n announci ng the Fast Track
Examination. According to the notification dated
25-6-2004 it has been submitted that only General
Line vacancies were announced by RMS division
and not Account s l i ne vacanci es. Without
announcing the Accounts Line posts for the Fast
Track Examination and filling up these post only
from Fast Track qualified persons, and seeking
clarification from the Directorate, which is still
awaited and not holding any DPC since 2002 of
the PO&RMS Accounts line officials for filling up
the norm based Accounts Line post on some plea
or other, cannot at all be apprecaited as being
fair to all those who have passed the PO&RMS
Examination and whose interest also needs to
be protected by the respondent. Further it has
been submitted by the respondents that the
Directorate order dated 30-5-2006 has completely
withdrawn the Fast Track Promotion scheme,
which tantamounts to promotion from the feeder
grade only and not through this Fast Track
examination, thus strengthening the need for
conducting the DPC for PO & RMS Accountants,
without any further procrastination on the part of
the respondent.
18. Under the circumstances we consider it just and
proper to direct the first respondent to immediately
convene the DPC for promotion of PO&RMS Accounts
line persons to norm based LSG Accounts vacancies
based on the recruitment rules dated 13-9-1976 and
issue necessary promotion order in accordance with
rules for the eligible PO&RMS Accounts line officials,
within a period of four weeks from the date of receipt
of a copy of this order.
19. The O.A. is allowed as above. No costs.
Note : Com. K.M. Ramesh has earlier appered
for the circle union, Tamil Nadu in the Chennai
CAT, High Court and now at Supreme Court in the
case of 'TBOP & BCR are equal to LSG HSG-II'.

29 BHARTIYA POST JANUARY, 2007
Memorandum submitted to the Hon'ble Chairman of 6th
Central Pay Commission by the JCM (National Council)
Staff Side on the issue of Interim Relief on 09-11-2006
On behalf of the Staff Side, JCM, we extend our
warmest greetings and heartily welcome to you and
the other members of the 6th Central Pay Commission.
We hope to have frequent interactions during the
course of the Commission's inquiry and deliberations,
to present and discuss our views and suggestion on
the vital issues concerning workers, we represent.
Joint Consultative Machinery was conceived as a
negotiating forum for Central Government employees
to usher in an era of a conflict - free industrial climate,
especially after the tumultuous experience of indefinite
strike action of the Central Government employees in
1960. The negotiating machinery was set up after
intense discussions with the Unions/Federations in all
Ministries/Departments of the Government. The signing
of the Joint intent/agreement on conclusion of the
deliberations paved the way for the formal functioning
of the Council at all levels. The National Council is the
apex forum under the three tier system of JCM, which
is headed by the Cabinet Secretary. The official side
comprises of the Secretaries/Heads of Departments of
all employing Ministries and the Staff Side by the
nominated representatives of all recognized Federations/
Unions. Even since its formation, the staff side of the
National Council, JCM has been the united voice of the
Central Government employees on all common and
basic issues, like Minimum wage, pay scales, rate of
increment, dearness compensation, other
compensatory allowance etc.
We reproduce below para 171.12 (page 2051-52,
vol. III-part IX) of the report of 5th central pay
commission on the issue of entitlement of Govt.
employees for revised wages from 1-1-2006.
"In case for any reason Government finds itself
unable to set up a permanent pay body, it should
at least concede the right of Central Government
employees to have a complete pay revision once
in 10 years. This would mean that if the date of
implementation of the Fifth Pay Commission is
1-1-96, the date of implementation of the Sixth
Pay Commission should be pre-determined as 1-
1-2006 irrespective of when the next Pay
Commission is actually appointed. However, the
Government should also take note of the fact that
it generally takes a Pay Commission a period of
about three years to complete its deliberations
and therefore, the next Pay Commission should
be appointed latest by 1-1-2003, so that its report
becomes available by 1-1-2006."
The continued nugatory attitude of the Government
on this issue, compelled the organizations to ventilate
this just and reasonable demand through organizing
various trade union actions which were to culminate in
an indefinite strike, on 1st March, 2006. For this, due
strike notices were served by the respective organizations.
However, with the personal intervention of the Prime
Minister and announcement of the appointment of Pay
Commission, the strike action was averted.
Both at the time of setting up the 4th and the 5th
Central Pay Commissions, the Government on
negotiation with the Staff Side of National Council of
JCM had granted interim relief. However, instead of
resorting to a bilateral settlement, the question of
"desirability and need" for an interim relief has been
referred to this Commission for its consideration and
decision. The relevant portion of the terms of reference
is extracted hereunder :-
"To examine desirability and the need to
sanction any interim relief till the time the
recommendation of the Commission are made
and accepted by the Government."
It is, therefore, the unanimous and considered view
of all organizations participating in the JCM that we
should first submit a memorandum to the Commission
on the question of interim relief, setting out the need,
desirability and quantum thereof.
Considering the issue of the methodology and
mechanism of periodical wage revision of Civil servants,
both the 4th and 5th CPC had suggested setting up of
a Permanent Wage Review Body. The said body was
to collect, update and maintain the basic data on Pay
scales and allowances and review the same on a
continuous basis.
The 5th CPC, perhaps realizing the reluctance on
the part of the Government, to consider the above
suggestion, as was evident from the fate of a similar
recommendation of the 4th CPC, alternatively but
forcefully advocated for a time bound decennial wage
revision (vide Para 171.12 of their report cited above)
through the setting up of a Pay Commission. The very
fact that Government did not set up the Commission
in 2003 as a result of which the wages of Central
Government empl oyees coul d not be revi sed,
necessitates the grant of interim relief.
It would be relevant to mention here that in the
intervening period between 1-1-2006 and the actual
30 BHARTIYA POST JANUARY, 2007
implementation of the 6th CPC report, quite a number
of Central Govt. employees are likely to retire from
service on superannuation. The grant of Interim relief (if
not to the fullest extent) will provide them at least with
partial benefit in the form of higher salary and pension
entitlements.
Incidentally it may be pointed out that the grant of
Interim Relief with effect from 1-1-2006 would eventually
reduce the financial burden for the Government at the time
of implementation of the final report of the Commission.
Comparison with outside wages has, played a
predominant role in the determination of the minimum
wage. The concept of comparison with outside
empl oyment i s, we woul d l i ke to rei terate, an
i nternati onal y recogni zed pri nci pl e of wage
determi nati on i n ci vi l servi ces. The Magaw
Commission of United Kingdom, on which reliance was
placed by the 4th Central Pay Commission, had
unambiguously recognized the need for a fair
comparison with outside wages as the most reliable
indicator in determining the public service wages.
In order not to widen the areas of comparison,
we shall however confine ourselves to the minimum
wages obtaining in some of the Public Sector
undertakings (figures which of are readily available
with us) whose wage system is evolved through the
process of collective bargaining within the overall
framework of the gui del i nes i ssued by the
Government form time to time. It should be mentioned
with emphasize that the Govt. of India is a direct party
in all the bilateral wage negotiations in the Public
Sector Undertakings, for they are fully owned
Government companies.
Composition of Central Govt. Employees :
It may also be mentioned here that the Central
Govt. Employees consist of :
1. Railwaymen - 14 lacs
2. Defence- Industrial worker - 5 lacs
3. Postal Worker - 5.5 lacs
4. Police & Para Military Staff - 3 lacs
5. Other Civilians including
Administrative and Scientific staff 3.5 lacs. Thus
it would be seen that about 80% are industrial workers
in the central services.
Therefore, for the purpose of determination of
Interim Relief, comparison at the lowest unskilled
level is most appropriate. We have given below a
statement showing the minimum wage (Pay+DA)
obtaining in certain Public Sector Undertakings,
which presently ranges from Rs. 6640/- to Rs. 7291/
-. At the time of oral submission, we may submit a
list of more Public Sector Undertakings and the
minimum wage obtaining therein.

We may also mention that the Public Sector
Workers are sanctioned an ex-grant payment in lieu
of Bonus ranging from Rs. 15,000 to 20,000 p.a. Thus
the actual wage gap is considerable higher than what
is depicted in the above table.
Finally we may also state that in most of the Public
Sector Undertaking, fresh wage agreements are due
with effect from 1-1-2007. Therefore, by the time the
6th Central Pay Commission finalises its report and
the Govt. takes action thereon, another wage
settlement would have come about in almost all of the
PSUs, further widening the gap in the minimum wage.
To apply the percentage increase in the per capita
net national product registered during the preceding
period of 10 years as a compensation factor to the
existing minimum Pay plus DA was the criterion
adopted by the 5th CPC to determine the minimum
wage. Though we did not and also do not accept the
said criterion for the elaborate reasons we may
adduce at the time of submission of our detailed
memorandum on issues connected with the wage
revision, it could be seen from the accompanying table
that the percentage increase in per capita net national
product for the years 1993-94 to 2003-04 (for which
authentic figures are available) was at 56.20 at factor
cost. (Table given below) By applying the very same
compensation factor to the existing emoluments of
4743/- it could be seen that an increase in the
minimum wage is warranted by an amount of Rs.
2666/-.

[Source :Economic Survey 2004-05-Appendix
Table No. 1.1.S/3]
Permit us to cite an observation made by the 5th
CPC in their report on Interim Relief (vide para 25)
submitted on 2-5-1995 in this regard. They have stated
and we approvingly quote :
"In the light of the Directive principle of equal pay
for equal work and various judicial pronouncements on
the subject as well as on administrative consideration,
it may also be desirable to ensure that disparities in
the compensation packages provided for the employees
in different sectors performing similar functions are
minimized. Too large disparity between the emoluments
in the two sectors would have an undesirable adverse
impact on morale and efficiency".
While finally recommending the grant of 10% of
pay as Interim relief, subject to a minimum of Rs. 100/
across the board, the 5th CPC has also made the
following observation, (vide para 34) which we consider
germane to the issue under consideration.
"After taking into account the relief of Rs. 100.-
p.m. already sanctioned by Government in
September, 1993, the payment of further relief as
now recommended would result in aggregate
benefit of 26.66% and 24.24% respectively to those
Group D and Group C employees drawing pay at
the minimum of their lowest pay scales as against
13.33% and 12.12% currently admissible."
Taking into account the yawning and the steadily
widening gap between the minimum wage of the
Central Govt. employees and the employees of the
Public Sector Undertakings as depicted in the table
below, which presently ranges from Rs. 2161/- p.m.
to 2548/- p.m. and more prominently due to the fact
that the Central Government Employees are today
lagging behind by a whopping amount of Rs. 2666/- even
on the basis of the percentage increase of per capita net
national product, a criteria adopted by the 5th CPC in
determination of minimum wage, we deemed that the
Commission recommend an interim relief of 15% of Pay
+DP, subject to a minimum of Rs. 1000 p.m. with effect
from 1-1-2006. The fact that the employees of various
Government organizations on their conversion as
corporate entities like the Department of Telecom were
given an adhoc increase of Rs. 1000/p.m. on their
absorption, lends credence to the legitimacy of the
quantum of Interim Relief, we have computed and
suggested. In order to extend the benefit of Pay revision
to the employees, who might retire from service during
the period between 1-1-2006 and the date of
implementation of the recommendation of the 6th Central
Pay Commission, the interim relief may be treated as
Pay for the purpose of Pension and other retirement
benefits as was done by the 5th Central Pay Commission.
Interim Relief to Pensioners :
We may also refer to Para 127.8 of the report of the
5th CPC wherein they have made the following observation
on the grant of interim relief to the existing pensioners:
"We hope and trust that this nexus between
the serving employees and pensioners with
regard to grant of interim relief is now firmly
established and will subsist."
We, therefore, urge upon the Commission to
simultaneously recommend grant of interim relief to
the existing pensioners at the same rate applicable to
the serving employees viz. 15% of the Basic Pension
including the dearness relief to the extent of 50%
subject to a minimum of Rs. 500.
We humbly submit that the purpose of this
memorandum is to seek a minimum of interim
relief as requested above.

No Mom is satisfied selling her son,
Dad is not happy with costlier education,
And increased maltreatment to woman,
They campaigned to Feel Good !
National Song debated, Tri-Colour misused,
Disinvestment increased, Children abused.
Adopting Liberalization, Privatization, Globalization,
India is shining in their mood!
Unemployed youths harassed, teachers for salary,
Public Distribution collapsed for corruption and burglary,
And farmers committed suicide out of starvation,
Inflation on, subsidies gone.
Unjust and unruly for India's forests, land and water,
Programmes in common became a blunder.
Anti-welfare policies with a deaf year to worker's agitaiton,
A booming economy with Special Economic Zone!
New Years to come may be greeted with ease,
Favourably, if involved in union activities.
Propagate and motivate in a wide manner,
Employed or not, does not matter.
