Letter No.P/2-9/J & K dated 30.08.2007 addressed
to Secretary, Department of Posts
Opening of 'Holiday Home' at Katra in J &
K Circle.
It is brought to our notice that many Postal
Officials who are visiting Katra for the darshan of Mata
Vai shnav Devi are struggl i ng hard to secure
accommodation outside which is costly and also non-
affordable.
If there is a 'Holiday Home' at Katra, it will be
most useful to the postal families who are visiting Katra
for the Devi Darshan.
It is requested to consider the same and a line
in reply may please be sent to this Union about the
action taken.
Soliciting response.
Letter No.P/2-9/J & K Circle dated 30.09.2007
addressed to Secretary, Department of Posts
Arbitrary conversion of staff quarters for
postal and other purposes - case of J & K Postal
administration.
It is brought to our notice that the J & K Circle
administration is now converting the staff quarters for
office use despite there are many demands from the
staff for allotment of quarters.
For instance, one postal quarter at Bakshi
Nagar has been converted as sub post office, which is
in the heart of the city. Some more quarters at Roop
Nagar have been converted as the office of the DAP.
Resulting the deprival of opportunities to the staff in
the allotment of staff quarters.
It is therefore requested to cause necessary
action to vacate those staff quarters and allot the same
for the occupation of staff at the earliest.
Soliciting response.
Letter No. P/2-19/Dharmapuri dated 30.08.2007
addressed to Secretary, Department of Posts
Construction of upstairs in Dharmapuri HO
building to house the office of the SSPOs -
regarding
Due to non-appl i cati on of Schedul e of
Accommodation prescribed for the Head Post Offices
and also the unscientific reduction in measurement of
the proposal while approving the plan exercised by
the administration, the present accommodation
available at Dharmapuri HO is quite insufficient for the
HO. There is no proper adequate space for the
LETTERS TO DEPARTMENT
branches and it is congested very much.
The allotment of one crore rupees for the said building
has not been utilised properly to provide amenities
and also construct the building as per SAO, forty lakhs
have been surrendered after the construction of the
building.
The regional administration admitted the
shortcomings and assured us to send proposal to
construct upstairs in the said building to accommodate
the divisional office besides shifting some branches of
the HO to the upstairs as the divisional office is
functioning in two rented building incurring expenditure
of Rs 12000/- per month.
Now it is learnt that the proposal sent by the
PMG Western region considering the urgency and
requirement of upstairs to the existing building has
not been included in the proposal sent by the Circle
administration for approval for the current year projects.
It is therefore requested to take appropriate action to
include the proposal of Dharmapuri HO building in the
current year proposal and allot adequate funds for the
same.
Soliciting immediate action.
Letter No.P/2-19/Kri shnagi ri dated 30.08.2007
addressed to Secretary, Department of Posts
Departmental building for Krishnagiri HO -
Request to allot adequate funds for construction.
Despite the facts that the plan for construction
of Departmental building for Krishnagiri HO has been
approved for the current year, necessary funds have
not been allotted so far resulting the non start of the
project.
The post office is functioning in a premises fit
for a car shed in the underground of the double storied
building with no proper ventilation and lightings. The
schedule of accommodation of the premises is just fit
for LSG offi ce whereas a bi gger HSG-I HO i s
functioning in the cramped accommodation with no
moving space.
It is requested to expedite the funds allotment
and ensure the construction work at the earliest to
mitigate the suffering of the officials.
A line in reply about the action taken is highly
solicited.
Letter No.P/2-20/Agra Dated 23.08.2007 addressed
to Member [P], Postal Services Board
Sexual harassment on a woman employee
and grant of protection to the offender by the
2 BHARTIYA POST OCTOBER, 2007
disciplinary authority - reg.
This Union hastens to bring to your kind notice
that an ASPOs in Agra who indulged in sexual
harassment against a woman postal assistant and
was transferred out of Agra nine months back on the
finding of the prima facie evidence of his crime by the
Enquiry Committee appointed by the Chief PMG is
still managing to remain in Agra without joining his
new post and is frequenting the divisional and regional
offices in Agra under the protective umbrella of the
DPS Agra.
Shri. R.N.Yadav ASPOs Agra was found prima
facie guilty of committing sexual harassment against
a woman Postal assistant of Agra division by the
enquiry committee constituted by the Chief PMG. He
was transferred to Gazipur under Allahabad Region in
the month of November 2006. He stands struck off
from the rolls of Agra division. But surprisingly the
ASPOs is able to avoid joining his new post for more
than nine months. No second medical opinion was
ordered against him for continue to remain so long on
leave of absence just to avoid obeying the transfer
orders of the department. If the ASPOs is on no report
then it is not comprehensible as to why action was
not initiated for neglecting official duty for so long a
period?
This Union learns that such things are possible
only due to the protective canopy made available to
thi s ASPOs by the DPS Agra. The Uni on i s
apprehensive that this may lead to a serious situation
wherein the affected woman official may come to some
harm at the hands of the ASPOs. More over the
continued presence of the ASPOs in Agra despite the
transfer orders is causing tremendous psychological
pressure and trauma on the affected woman official.
This Union is also is wondering as to what
happened to the enquiry initiated against the ASPOs?
It is apprehended that since the ASPOs is provided
shelter by the DPS, who is his disciplinary authority,
the enquiry is being unduly delayed. We wish the
enquiry findings are to be followed up to its logical
conclusion and the ASPOs is proceeded against under
appropriate disciplinary rules without delay. In the
meanwhi l e thi s Uni on urges for your personal
intervention to cause to take strong action by the
administration to ensure that the ASPOs join his new
post as ordered by the administration to help create
an atmosphere of confidence to the affected woman
official.
This Union would highly appreciate your
immediate action and a line in reply on the nature of
action in this serious matter.
Letter No.P/2-20/Agra dated 23.08.2007 addressed
to Member [P], Postal Services Board
Shifting of an officer being posted on
Promotion to the same station--regarding.
This Union would like to bring to your personal
attention about the serious situation emanating by
posting an officer on promotion to the same station
and to seek immediate remedial action.
Ki ndl y recal l our l etter about the sexual
harassment against a woman official in Agra by an
ASPOs and about the protection he is receiving at the
hands of Shri.V.K.Verma the DPS Agra. Shri.
V.K.Verma who was the SSPOs Agra division, Agra
was promoted and posted as the DPS Agra. During
his tenure as SSPOs a major fraud to the tune of more
than two crores occurred in Agra HO, which could
have been detected earlier had the SSPOs inspected
the office well in time. However he charge-sheeted more
than 50 officials by fixing subsidiary responsibilities
and then was promoted as DPS and was posted in
the same station as DPS Agra. Thus he became the
appellate authority for the same officials against whom
he issued charge sheets. This is highly irregular.
The nexus between the ASPOs who indulged
in sexual harassment against a woman official in Agra
and the DPS who is protecting him is reportedly been
formed long back while the latter was the SSPOs Agra
division. Had this officer been posted on promotion to
a station outside of the same station this type of a
serious situation would not have happened. In fact the
ASPOs who was transferred out of Agra by the
administration on the prima facie finding of his guilt
more than nine months earlier, is still able to manage
to avoid going to his new place of posting is only
because of his nexus with the DPS Agra.
This Union therefore would like to urge upon
your personal intervention in this matter and to cause
orders so as to transfer the named DPS from Agra.
A line in reply about the action taken is highly
solicited.
Letter No.P/4-1/Staff Matters dated 23.08.2007
addressed Secretary, Department of Posts
Waival of declaration to be submitted at
the time of initial appointment in Postal Assistant
cadre---regarding.
This is regarding the obligatory declaration
submitted by an entrant in Postal Assistant cadre at
the time of initial appointment.
Under relevant provisions of Postal Manual
Volume-IV, an entrant has to submit an obligatory
declaration in connection with having read Postal
3 BHARTIYA POST OCTOBER, 2007
Manual Volume-IV, CCS (CCA) Rules, 1965 & CCS
(Conduct) Rules, 1964. Perhaps you too will appreciate
that it is not quite realistic that an outsider or a new
entrant have gone through & understood the ruling
provisions as laid down in these named books. Even
only a minimum portion of relevant ruling provisions
as is laid down in these Manuals are being taught
during the Induction Training Programme at respective
Postal Training Centres.
As such, it is our considered view that the
conditionality for submitting such a declaration shall
be waived with immediate effect.
It is therefore requested to cause necessary
orders to this effect at the earliest convenience.
A line in reply is highly solicited.
Letter No.P/1-5/Foreign Service dated 23.08.2007
addressed to the Secretary [P], Department of Posts
Request seeking amendment to the
provision of Rules governing grant of Foreign
Service to Union Office bearers - reg.
This Union would like to seek amendment to a
provision of the rules governing grant of Foreign Service
to the office-bearers of recognized unions and
federations to alleviate the difficulties being experienced
by the service unions.
We would like to draw your kind attention to
the Compilation of instructions on matters concerning
service associations in Department of Posts, circulated
vide Department of Posts No.10-1/2004-SR dated
25.6.2004. Kindly refer Chapter V 'Foreign Service' Para
No.4 relating to Order No.54-7/69-SPB II dated
30.12.69 and No.86-6/75-SPB II dated 6.8.76 that
states as follows:
" The Heads of Circles and administrative offices
would take prior approval of the Secretary [P] in
extending the period of transfer on Foreign Service of
non-gazetted employees under their control to the
service associations beyond the period of three years.
The period between two spells of deputation of Foreign
Service with service associations as office bearers
should be at least three years, which can be relaxed
only in consultation with Secretary [P]."
It is brought to your notice that the service
associations are not in a position to take its office
bearers on long spell of Foreign Service due to financial
crunch. Therefore normally the office bearers are being
brought on deputation to headquarters on short spells
according to the availability of funds with the Union.
Even the General Secretaries of some service
associations are not in a position to avail long spells
of Foreign Service due to the same reason. Therefore
the condition prescribed in the aforesaid provision of
the Foreign Service Rules creates a situation wherein
no office bearer including the General Secretary in the
case of a small union unable to remain in headquarters
on Foreign Service to look after the affairs of the Union
unless the Union could afford to draw the office bearer
on long spell of two or three years at a stretch. And
the Unions are made to approach the Directorate
frequently to get this condition relaxed in the case of
such office bearers who are required to function at the
headquarters on short spells.
This Union therefore urges for appropriate
correction to the above provision of the Foreign Service
Rules to permit availing of Foreign Service to unlimited
number of short spells also to the office bearers of
recognized service unions.
Letter No. P/2-1/Hyderabad GPO dated 21.08.2007
addressed to the Secretary, Department of Posts
Withholding of retirement benefits -- case
of Sri. M.Maqbool, Dy. Chief Postmaster (Retired),
Hyderabad GPO---regarding.
The copy of the representation submitted by
the official on the above subject which is self-
expl anatory, i s encl osed herewi th for ki nd
consideration.
Despite the fact that there is no charge framed
against the official at the time of retirement, the due
DCRG has not been paid so far.
It i s therefore requested to consi der hi s
representation and cause orders accordingly.
Soliciting response.
Letter No.P/4-7 dated 21.08.2007 addressed to the
Secretary, Department of Posts
Inspector of Posts Examination--allotment
of surplus qualified candidates--request to
increase number of chances.
In accordance with the Directorate letter number
A-3402/01/2007-DE dated 13.04.2007, the surplus
qualified candidates who are available over & above
the selected candidates in a Circle can be allotted to
the different Circles. This has given effect respectively
from 2007.
It is brought to our notice that in many Circles,
the officials who secured higher marks in the IPO
Examination but could not be declared successful due
to dearth of vacancies in the Circles have exhausted
the maximum number of chances earlier. As such,
the benefits of this order do not reach the merited
candidates.
It is therefore requested that due to introduction
4 BHARTIYA POST OCTOBER, 2007
of the new system, one more chance be given to the
officials who exhausted their chances to appear in the
ensuing IPO Examination.
A line in reply about the action taken is urgently
solicited.
Letter No.P/2-9/J&K dated 24.08.2007 addressed to
the Secretary, Department of Posts
Request for transfer of a promoted officer
out of Jammu circle - reg.
This Union is aghast to know that the SSPOs
Jammu division [J&K Circle] who is not getting relieved
to take up his new assignment on promotion as DPS
Gorakhpur for months together even after the ultimatum
issued by the Postal Directorate that he should either
take the promotion or decline it, is being protected by
the Chief PMG J&K. The Directorate has also fixed
17.08.2007 as the cut of date for the above purpose
but the Chief PMG is safeguarding him to retain him
there itself on the plea that he is the only STS Officer
available in that Circle by making a reference to
Directorate.
This CHQ is receiving complaints from our J&K
Circle Unit that the above SSPOs is thus managing to
stay in Jammu itself to continue his role of activities
coated with vested interest. He is reportedly very
vindictive also in punishing officials even for minor
lapses. The staffs are under tremendous stress due
to the vindictive nature of this officer. Even after the
receipt of his own transfer orders, he is resorting to
transfer many officials irregularly and perhaps on
obvious considerations. His promotion orders has
indeed come as a boon to the officials who are getting
suffocated but the above protective stance of the Chief
PMG is creating a lot of discontentment amongst the
entirety of employees working in Jammu division.
This Union would like to bring to the notice of
the Directorate that the continued presence of the
aforesaid Officer in Jammu Circle would escalate
greater staff resentment and would adversely affect
the tranquillity. Therefore it is urged that action may
kindly be caused to get the Officer relieved from Jammu
circle.
This Union would like to urge for early action in this
regard and a line in reply would receive our high
appreciation.
Letter No. P/2-22/Kolkata GPO dated 22.08.2007
addressed to the Secretary, Department of Posts
Complete replacement of 64IBM PC s, 2 IBM
Servers & 1 IBM Laptop installed at Kolkata GPO-
--regarding.
Your personal attention is invited towards the
burni ng probl em bei ng faced by Kol kata GPO
employees since last 2 to 3 years. The situation was
brought to your attention through our communication
number P3/Kolkata GPO dated 15.03.2007, which was
duly acknowledged by your good office vide number
6129/SR/07 dated 19.03.2007.
Quite unfortunately, nothing has happened in
this regard till date.
Let the undersigned once again detail the
terrible situation that is currently being faced by the
employees of a prestigious Postal Establishment like
Kolkata GPO: -
1. 67 (Sixty Seven) IBM Machines {2 (two) IBM
Servers, 64 (Sixty four) IBM PCs & 1 (one) IBM Laptop}
have been marked as having reached "END OF
SERVICE" by IBM India Private Limited on 23.08.2006.
2. IBM had also informed that they have stopped
producing all related spares of these identified
machines.
3. After sincere efforts, the named company had
extended the AMC of these machines for another period
of 1(one) year only and the said extended period is
going to lapse on 24.08.2007.
4. This is also for your information that these
machines are installed at vital sections/departments
of Kolkata GPO, viz., Savings Bank counters, MPCM
counters, Computer Training Centre, Mass Mailing
Centre, Passport Cel l , Regi strati on Del i very
Department, Speed Post Delivery Department,
Business Office, BNPL Section, Treasury Department,
Accounts Section, Director' s Chamber, Administrative
Branch, etc. Majority of them are concentrated at
MPCM & Savings Bank Counters.
5. The Branches/ Sections as detailed in Para 4
above are fully computerised and Kolkata GPO is
presently running in on-line mode. As such, it would
not be feasible to revert back to manual work in these
departments/sections.
6. The condition has deteriorated to such an extent
that on almost all operative days, before opening of
Savings Bank counters & MPCM counters, afresh
installation of Sanchay Post Software & Meghdoot
Millenium Software becomes inevitable. The same is
generating huge public resentment as the public
service is hampered badly on almost all occasions.
7. Since all these PCs are mostly of P-I, P-II
configuration as such the Hardware of these PCs
cannot be upgraded any further.
8. Furthermore, spares of IBM PCs are not at all
available in open market.
9. These machines are not in a position to support
5 BHARTIYA POST OCTOBER, 2007
offices without any diversion of staff is deplorable.
This will result in dropping efficiency at operative
levels & unbearable workload on the shoulders of the
operative staff in the Post Offices. This causes a
serious concern.
It is requested to cause instructions to keep
the orders under abeyance & discuss the issue with
the staff side at the earliest.
Letter No. P/2-19/PSD Madurai dated 23.08.2007
addressed to Secretary, Department of Posts
Protest against proposal for closure of PSD
Madurai-regarding.
This Service Union likes to put its strong protest
on record in connection with the proposal of Circle
Administration for closure of PSD Madurai in Tamilnadu
Circle.
The Circle Administration has decided to
merge the PSD Madurai with PSD Tirunelveli. The
same may in turn generate deterioration of supplies
made from PSD Madurai and also will unnecessarily
harass the staffs working at PSD Madurai. Tirunelveli
is 210 Kms away from Madurai and it is tail end of
the Southern part of our country. Further, all the forms
from Government of India Press, Koratty & other forms
and stationeries supplied on DG &SD rate contract
from Northern India have to go to Tirunelveli lying in
the Southern tip of Tamilnadu only on passing through
Madurai Metro City. It will also cause huge freight
charges. Moreover, PSD Madurai is located in the
Headquarters of Southern Region. Its geographical
location as a central point of Madurai Region is
conducive for free flow of supply of forms & stationeries
to all the supplying units with quicker and easier mail
conveyance arrangements. Now the PSD Madurai is
also coordinating with the Regional Office in relation
to purchase & supply of all computer peripherals &
stationeries to the computerised RMS Offices/H.O.s/
S.O.s in Madurai Region. Thus it serves well as a
back office to all the supply units to help catch up
with the modern technology. Under these prevailing
circumstances, the need of the hour is to strengthen
the PSD by way of filling up of all vacant posts. At
present, 7 Group-D Posts, 1 Manager, 1 Assistant
Manager & 4 OA Posts are vacant. While the facts
remain so, the proposal for merger of PSD Madurai
with PSD Tirunelveli is wilful, deliberate & anti-worker
stance of the Circle Administration and is hereby
strongly protested.
A tabular statement of supply units of PSD
Madurai, PSD Tirunelveli & PSD Trichy is given below
which is a clear picture of even distribution of work
the latest Anti-Virus Software presently available in
present market, as their configuration cannot be
upgraded any further. As such, almost all of these
PCs are badly effected by VIRUS, which in turn is
decreasing the operative efficiency of these PCs.
The matter was also taken up a number of times
at both Divisional & Circle levels. Quite unfortunately,
the issue is yet to be settled.
In the light of above, this Union would like to
submi t i ts speci fi c proposal , whi ch i s detai l ed
hereunder: -
(a) The Postal Directorate must take immediate
initiative for replacement of all these identified
67 IBM PCs as the crucial date is knocking on
the door.
(b) The book value of all these machines is
practically zero, as all these PCs were installed
during the period 1995 to 1997.
(c) In case of paucity of fund under the appropriate
head, the said replacement can be easily done
by way of allotment of funds from the Business
Development Head as these machines are
mostly installed at those Departments that are
directly related to Business Office of Kolkata
GPO.
(d) Furthermore, it is also proposed that such big
& prestigious establishment like Kolkata GPO
must have at least a sizeable amount of
Computer peripherals in their store as reserve
for emergent replacement.
It is therefore requested to cause necessary
orders so as to minimise this burning problem of
Kolkata GPO, which not only places our fellow
employees of Kolkata GPO under deep trouble but
also is bringing down the repute of the Department.
A line in reply about the action taken is highly
solicited.
Letter No. P/4-5/PLI dated 21.08.2007 addressed to
the Secretary, Department of Posts
Decentralisation of PLI/RPLI woks at
Divisional level-regarding.
It i s brought to our noti ce that the PLI
Directorate vide its letter number 29-12/2001-LI (Vol-
II) dated 20.09.2006 ordered decentralisation of
acceptance of PLI/RPLI proposal s & i ssue of
acceptance tokens & PR Books, without minding the
acute shortage of staff prevailing at divisional level.
When the operative offices are under pressure
and unable to cope up with the existing workload,
transfer of such works performed by administrative
6 BHARTIYA POST OCTOBER, 2007
earlier made between themselves: -
Name of the Office Number of Supply Number of supply
Units at present units after
proposed merger
PSD Madurai 597 400
PSD Tirunelveli 608 1008
PSD Trichy 665 862
Furthermore, it is worthy to make a mention of
the fact that the PSD Tirunelveli is not also able to
cope up with the present supplying units. For example,
PSD Madurai made supply of forms to the following
number of units of PSD Tirunelveli during the years.
Year Units
2004-2005 34
2005-2006 56
2006-2007 130
Hence attachment of all supplying units of PSD
Madurai with PSD Tirunelveli will simply aggravate &
deteriorate forms & stationary supply-related works.
As such, the proposal will put an end to the present
smooth supply of forms.
It is therefore requested to cause necessary
orders to the Circle Administration so as to put an
end to the said proposal of merger as the same will in
turn entail huge expenditure in the shape of freight
charges, will also slow down the smooth performance
of all the Units to which computer peripherals, forms
& stationeries are currently being supplied by PSD
Madurai.
A line in reply about the action taken is highly
solicited.
Letter No. P/2-1/2-14/Shahdol dated 23.08.2007
addressed to the Secretary, Department of Posts
Non-remittance of a fraud case to CBI ---
regarding.
A kind reference is invited to this Union
communication of even number dated 14.11.2006.
It is perhaps well known that a Savings Bank
fraud to the tune of more than Rs. 50 lakhs had taken
place at Shahdol Railway Station PO under Shahdol
Division, Uttar Pradesh. The matter was thereafter
enquired into by the DPS (HQ), Bhopal, and on
conclusion of the said inquiry, Sri. S.S.Tiwari, the then
SPOs, Shahdol, Sri. R.K.Tripathy, ASPOs (Shahdol
East) Sub-division and Sri. S.L. Rohini, the then
Postmaster of Shahdol Railway Station PO (where
the fraud had taken place), were identified as primary
offenders.
The lacuna on the part of the named SPOs was
to such an extent that the named Postmaster was
able to abscond from the scene as lodging FIR s &
other related formalities were badly delayed by the
named SPOs. The named Postmaster i s sti l l
absconding till date.
Quite surprisingly, the named SPOs was given
ad-hoc promotion to the post of SSPOs, Ujjain, in spite
of the fact that he was identified as a prima facie
offender in the case under reference.
It is worthy to mention over here that named
officer is pressuring the present SPOs, Shahdol, not
to gi ve effect to an Audi t Obj ecti on Recovery
amounting to Rs. 86,000/-standing in his name as was
ordered by the DA (Postal).
It is our strong apprehension that the named
officer is giving shelter to the said Postmaster as he
has also badly delayed investigation into the matter
and the reason behind that he is going to retire from
service on 31.12.2007, on superannuation.
As such, it is demanded that the entire matter
be handed over to CBI for further investigation
immediately as the amount involved is more than half
crore and the said fraud had also generated heavy
publ i c resentment agai nst the departmental
authorities.
It is therefore requested to cause orders for CBI
investigation at the earliest so as to nab down all the
culprits.
A line in reply about the action taken is highly
solicited.
Letter No.P/2-8/Shimla dated 24.08.2007 addressed
to the Secretary, Department of Posts
Pollution caused by supply of poor quality
of sealing wax---case of Himachal Pradesh Circle-
reg.
It is brought to our notice that quality of the
sealing wax currently being supplied to Himachal
Pradesh Circle is not up to the mark.
The sealing wax so supplied, is emitting
poisonous fumes and gases and is causing great
damage not only to the public heath of the employees
but also to the environment.
It is therefore requested to intervene into the
matter & cause necessary instruction for halting supply
of such poor quality sealing wax.
A line in reply about the action taken is highly
solicited.
Letter No. P/2-22/South Presidency dated 22.08.2007
addressed to the Secretary, Department of Posts
Non-grant of Sunderban Allowance to
Postal Staffs working in Sunderban areas, South
of Dampier Hodge's Line, West Bengal.
It is brought to our notice that the Postal Officials
working in Sunderban areas, South of Dampier Hodge's
Line, South Presidency Postal Division, West Bengal,
7 BHARTIYA POST OCTOBER, 2007
were previously drawing Sunderban Allowance. The
said allowance was granted due to lack of Civic
Amenities & Transport facilities in the said area. A
copy of Government of India, Ministry of Finance,
Department of Expenditure, F.No. 20 (1)/97-E.II (B)
dated 17th July 2001 is enclosed herewith for your
kind reference.
Quite unfortunately, the drawal of said allowance
has been stopped all of a sudden with effect from
01-01-2003.
On the contrary, West Bengal State
Government employees are still drawing the said
allowance. A copy of Government of West Bengal,
Finance Department, Audit Branch order number-190-
F dated 6th January 2000, is enclosed herewith for
your kind perusal.
It is therefore requested to cause necessary
orders so that the Postal Department officials can also
draw the named allowance.
Letter No.P/2-19/TN Cle. dated 21.08.2007 addressed
to the Secretary, Department of Posts
Proposal to close/merger of divisions---
cases of Tamilnadu Circle.
It i s constrai ned to note that the Ci rcl e
Administration, Tamilnadu has sent proposals to merge
Arkonam Division with Vellore Division & major
reorganisation of divisions situated at Chennai & its
suburbans.
A kind attention is invited to the assurance you
have given personally on 19.04.2007 during the talks
held while withdrawing the Strike & also the Minutes
issued thereon ensuring that there will be no closure
or merger of divisions.
The present move of the Circle Administration
i s total l y unwarranted & i t wi l l cause a l ot of
inconvenience & disturbance to the staffs besides
affecting efficiency. The present arrangement has no
problem. Similarly, there is another proposal to merge
Salem East & West Divisions for which we have
requested to stop the merger in several references,
which will cause serious dislocation to the staff.
The move in closure of Divisions in Tamilnadu
Ci rcl e i s causi ng a seri ous concern. Thi s wi l l
tantamount to breach the assurance given by the Head
of the Department on higher forums.
It is therefore requested not to accord sanction
to the proposals & the statusquo may please be
ensured.
Letter No. P/2-19/Theni dated 21.08.2007 addressed
to the Secretary, Department of Posts
Irregular imposing of recovery against
innocent officials--case of Theni Division in
Tamilnadu Circle.
It is brought to our notice that the innocent
officials have been issued notice to credit huge amount
declaring them as subsidiary offender in the case of
SB/RD fraud committed by GDS BPM, Megamalai
B.O., in account with Chinnamanur in Theni Division.
The reason for imposing such huge recovery is
that the failure on not preparing the list of Passbooks
not received for interest entry.
It is pertinent to mention that in Theni Division,
the shortage of staff is in existence to the tune of 40
percent of the total establishment. More than 20 Postal
Assistants out of 190 establishment are in deputation
to Regional Office, PSD, RPLI, etc. Each official is
carrying out the work of two officials regularly. As such,
it is practically impossible to attend the miscellaneous
work in the SB Branch.
Now the administration instead of evincing
interest to recover the loss sustained to the Department
from the main offender has resorted actions against
the innocent officials by fixing responsibility on one
pretext or the other sidelining the main rules that the
recovery should not be made if the official is not directly
responsible for the loss and also to consider the
extenuating circumstances while determining the

Letter No.P/4-1 dated 21.08.2007 addressed to the
Secretary, Department of Posts
Clarification sought for filling up of LSG/
HSG-II/HSG-I posts by West Bengal Circle---
regarding.
It is brought to our notice that the Circle
Administration, West Bengal sought for clarifications
on the following points: -
1. Whether 10 years service or 3 years service is
LSG grade be required for promotion to HSG-II grade
for both regular & FTP LSG officials?
2. Whether filling up of 1/3rd vacancies earmarked
for LSG is to be filled up from 07.02.2002 to 17.05.2006
as advised by Directorate?
According to us, seeking clarifications on the
settled issues is nothing but to protract the issues for
no reasons. When the Directorate has clarified earlier
to accord HSG-II promoti ons to LSG offi ci al s
completing 3 years of service, seeking clarification on
the same is unwarranted & also similar is the position
in respect of 1/3rd LSG vacancies.
It is a sorry state of affairs that in many Circles, instead
of settling the issues, are causing unwarranted
clarifications and delaying the process of promotion
8 BHARTIYA POST OCTOBER, 2007
under one pretext or the other.
You are requested to cause suitable instructions to
all Circles and ensure the process of promotion to
LSG, HSG-II & HSG-I be completed at least within
one month.
A line in reply about the action taken is highly solicited.
Letter No. P/4/BCR dated 15-08-2007 addressed to
the Secretary, Department of Post
Non drawal of officiating pay to senior BCR
Official in HSG I cadre. C/o Tamilnadu Circle.
In the absence of claear cut clarifications about
the officiating arangements in HSG I cadre, there were
instances of allowing officiating arrangements in HSG
I Cadre beyond one year in Tamilnadu circle.
There are about seventy cases of such
officiating arrangements and the due amount for the
officiating period exceeding one year has not been
drawn to such official and many of them were retired
on superannuation now resulting denial of due
retirement benefits.
The Principal Chief PMG, Tamilnadu circle has
also sought approval to regularise officiating periods
beyond one year to those officials as one time
measure since the arrangement are ensured now to
with in one year.
It is requested to consider the same and accord
sanction at the earliest.
A line in reply about the action taken is highly
appreciated.

inquiry and intimate action to recover the illegal
payments sanctioned by the then superintendent of

ALLAHABAD CWC MEETING
10 BHARTIYA POST OCTOBER, 2007
3. The efforts of the CHQ in placing all the Postal
Group C employees' issues before the Sixth Pay
Commission in the oral evidence were highlighted in
the Work Report of GS.
4. All the Circle Secretaries elaborately spoke
on al l i ssues and al l of them appreci ated the
functioning of the General Secretary. The publishing
of VENTURE; the representative activities of the CHQ
in taking up the problems of the Circles and branches
with the Directorate in right earnest; the improvement
in bringing out the monthly journal of the CHQ
'Bhartiya Post'; the processing of many issues in the
aftermath of stri ke settl ement etc were much
appreciated.
5. The Circle Unions may convene their CWCs
and collect the opinion on the following important issues
confronting our cadre based on the Work Report
submitted by the GS in the CWC.
(a) PO & RMS Accountants and filling up of APM
Accounts posts.
(b) Collecting particulars about the unfilled residual
vacancies.
(c) Recovery of over payment made from APM
Accounts and Accountants.
(d) Proposal of AP Circle Secretary for manning
SPM posts for which no volunteers are available.
(e) Divisionalization of LSG cadre and promotion
to HSG II based on PA Gradation list.
(f) The problems prevailing in filling up the LSG/
HSG II/HSG I posts and verification of notional
promotion since 1983. The opinions of the circle
should be sent to CHQ with in one month.
6. The CWC decided to redraft and update the
Union Constitution to be placed and approved in the
next AIC. To prepare the draft constitution a sub-
committee consisting of five members Viz., Com.
M.Krishnan (CHQ President), Com. K.V. Sridharan
(General Secretary), Com. Somnath Mukherje (Deputy
General Secretary), Com. K.B. Barot (Circle Secretary
Gujarat), and Com. R.C. Misra (Circle Secretary
Orissa) was constituted. The draft will be circulated to
all branches seeking their opinions and suggestions.
7. The CWC desired that the ED Union General
Secretary should create a congenial atmosphere for
settling the issues relating to the recognition of
Federation by withdrawing the court case filed by it
and explore the possibilities of finding out the ways
and means of joint working with the Federation by
ensuring associate membership of NFPE as the
Government Rules do not permit the affiliation of ED
Union with the Federation despite all efforts of the
Federation and the ED CHQ through organizational
and political means. The recognition to NFPE and
revival of JCM forums at all levels is very very essential
to protect the interests of the postal workers especially
at the time of submission of reports by the Pay
Commission and ED Committee. The continued non-
recognition of Federation would result in our lack of
presence in the National Council, Departmental Council
and Regional council JCM at this crucial time and other
Federations may take advantage by getting recognition
from the Government.
8. P3 Union is entitled to depute 18 Federal
Councillors to the ensuing Federal Council session
to be held in Kolkata during October 2007. The

an ex-officio member) and five circle secretaries
Vi z., Comrades K.B. Barot (Guj rat); Mangesh
Parab (Maharashtra); R.C. Misra (Orissa); S.A.
Hameed (Chhattisgarh); and U.K. Tiwari (Bihar) as
Federal Councillors.
9. Efforts would be undertaken to ensure at least
four pages of the Bhartiya Post in Hindi. Taking into
consideration of the escalating cost of printing and
other expenses and the cost of single copy works out
to Rs. 7/-, the CWC agreed to the proposal of the
General Secretary to enhance the price of single copy
to Rs. 5/- from the October 2007 issue.
10. The CWC after discussing the dispute in the
elections of M.P. Circle conference in detail, decided
to conduct the Circle Conference afresh by the CHQ
within a period of one month after this session of
CWC. The delegates of two divisions Viz., Gwalior
and Sehore, which have not conducted their divisional
conferences even after completion of more than 27
months from the l ast conference, shal l not be

Letter No. 13-3/2004-PE-I Dated : 20-08-2007
Non settlement of pensionary benefits -
case of Sri Ajit Chanda, Retd. Sub Postmaster
Postal Dept owns plots yet rents space to run post offices
Ever heard of a landlord who has 1,871 vacant
plots across the country and yet pays Rs. 32 crore
for renting space in the same locations? Or leaves
space in buildings in prime locations unoccupied for
more than 150 years?
Accordi ng to i ts own admi ssi on, the
department of posts has 3.82 crore square feet, or a
little less than 900 acres, vacant land in almost all
states, some of which were acquired, purchased or
gifted to it more than 50 years ago. But lack of funds
has forced it to leave the plots vacant and instead
rent space.
It's different matter that the department spent
Rs. 68 crore in renting space and meeting litigation
costs during 2006-07 just because it could not find
resources to meet constructi on costs. The
department told a parliamentary panel that against
its demand for Rs. 745 crore during the tenth plan, it
was given Rs. 98.5 crore for construction purposes.
Whatever be the reason, in the absence of
construction, the department has had to rent space
in 1,389 places where the 1,871 plots are located
and 187 pieces of land have been encroached upon
by others. The department told the panel that 403
plots were in prime locations, with 63 of these in
Kerala, 62 in Rajasthan, 42 in Maharashtra and 35 in
Karnataka. With no funds available, 22,020 of the
26,504 post offices were located in rented space with
only 4,484 or 17% located in department owned
buildings as on March 31, 2006. Even in the buildings
owned by the postal department, some of which have
been declared heritage structures, 99 properties have
vacant space. Ten properties in Uttar Pradesh take
the cake with space lyling unused since the period
1854-1896. In Hamirpur, space has been lying vacant
since 1854.
The maximum number of postal department
buildings is in Kerala and Delhi where there is a rus
for office space. These buildings are in prime locations
which could have generted sufficient resources.
In Delhi, for instance, the department has
chosen neither to use space nor rent it out in areas
like Chanakyapuri, Mayur Vihar, Anand Vihar,
Mehrauli and Paschim Vihar, not just for a year or
two - but, all of 27 long year in some cases. So, how
much is the department losing? Well, it does not
seem to know for sure since the data it supplied to
the standing committee on Communications and
Information Technology kept changing.
Having realised the colossal waste, it has
now woken up to the need of setting up a 100%
government-owned company for development of
postal estates and generate some resources which
could be used to meet the postal department's
deficit.

Dear Comrades,
At the outset, we record our hearty greetings
and thanks to the Reception Committee of this CWC,
Allahabad and the Circle Secretary U.P. who agreed
to hold this CWC meeting today in a grand manner.
We welcome all CHQ Office bearers and Circle
Secretaries. Let us debate and discuss and review
the activities of the CHQ after the Karimnagar CWC
and decide our future course of action.
I on behalf of the CHQ present this Report on
activities for the consideration of this CWC.
Homage
Since our Karimnagar CWC meeting we have
lost some of our beloved Comrades. Com. Laxmaiah
[Ex- Circle Secretary P-3 Andhra]; Com. Druz Ex-
Ci rcl e Secretary P3 Keral a; Com. Bi reswar
Bhattacharya Ex-Circle Secretary P4 West Bengal;
and Com. Sankaraiah Ex-Circle Secretary P4 Andhra
have departed from us. The postal fraternity will always
remember them for their contribution to the postal trade
union movement. During this time Shri. Chandrasekhar
Ex-Prime Minister of India also breathed his last. This
CWC pays i ts homage i n memory of al l these
comrades and the public personality.
Sixth Pay Commission & Oral Evidence
This is the first time in our history that the
collective wisdom of All CWC members of the CHQ
has been reflected in reality and true sense in the
preparation of the Memorandum submitted to the 6th
Pay Commission by convening an exclusive CWC
meeting for the purpose on 22-12-2006 and had
marathon discussion over ten hours at Karimnagar for
finalisation of draft.
The memorandum was E-mailed to Sixth Pay
Commission on 30-12-06 and another copy was
presented in person on 02-01-07 to the Member
Secretary along with the memorandums submitted by
the NFPE and all its other affiliates.
The 6th Pay Commission heard the Federations
first. NFPE was invited for oral evidence on 23.01.2006
at New Delhi. On behalf of NFPE, Com. C.C. Pillai,
Secretary General, Com. Des Raj Sharma, Dy.
Secretary General, Com. K.V. Sridharan, General
Secretary and Com. Giriraj Singh, General Secretary,
R-III participated in the discussions, which lasted for
one hour ten minutes.
During the discussions, we insisted for the
consideration of all the demands put forth in our
memorandum. The justification for higher pay for
various cadres, and in particular on TBOP / BCR,
Systems Administrators, the counting of past services
to Ex. RTPs for pension and promotion, the need to
exempt the Postal Dept. from the purview of Screening
Committee and creation of justified posts, various
allowances, the date of implementation as 01-01-06,
the need to fix the revised scales on point to point
fixation, running scales to the HSG.II, HSG.I cadre
etc. were gi ven due promi nence duri ng the
discussions, within the permissible time. We did our
job very consciously, sincerely and effectively.
Later, the Sixth Pay Commission has invited all
the unions to tender oral evidence on 06-03-07 at
Chennai. On behalf of our Union, Com. K.V. Sridharan,
General Secretary, Com. M. Krishnan, President, Com.
K. Ragavendran, Working President and Com. K.
Paneerselvam, Asstt. General Secretary attended along
with Com. C.C.Pillai the Secretary General, NFPE.
The time allotted to our union was judiciously
utilised to focus important issues of Group ' C'
effectively. The issues like Higher Pay scale to Postal
Assistant, the injustice caused to the TBOP / BCR
offi ci al s as wel l as HSG.I, the j usti fi cati on for
reintroduction of Charge Allowance to all Supervisors,
the discrimination prevailing between the post office
treasurers and RMS cashiers, Higher Pay scales to
Systems Administrators with a ratio of 40:40:20
promotion & declaring promotional posts to Postal
Assi stants, Hi gher Pay scal es to PO & RMS
Accountants, treating the RTP service as service for
promotion and pension, ensuring three promotions on
completion of 10, 20 and 25 years of service etc. were
comprehensively placed before the Pay Commission.
The questions raised by the Hon'ble Chairman of the
Sixth Pay Commission & other members of the
commission were also replied in an effective and
convincing manner. As Gandhiji had said that
'Satisfaction lies on the efforts; Full efforts is full victory',
we did our job to our satisfaction and we are awaiting
for justice to the Postal Group 'C' staff from the 6th
Pay Commission.
The Pay Commission has appointed three inter-
committees to study the following subjects:
1. Examining the feasibility of Performance
Rel ated Pay to Government empl oyees.
Headed by Prof. Biju Varkkey, IIM Ahemdabad.
2. Estimating the Compensation Package for
Government empl oyees and cost to the
Government -- By Prof. P.K. Premarajan Xavier,
Labour Relation Institute, Jamshedpur.
15 BHARTIYA POST OCTOBER, 2007
3. Study on Terminal Benefits of the Central
Government Employees -- By Dr. Gayithiri,
Centre for Economi c Studi es & pol i ci es
Bangalore.
Out of these three committees, the study group
on the feasibility of the performance related pay invited
our Federation for discussions on 13-04-07. Com. C.
C. Pillai, Secretary General led the delegation
consisting Com. KV.Sridharan, General Secretary,
Com. Des Raj Sharma, General Secretary, P-IV, Com.
Giriraj Singh, General Secretary, R-III and Com.
Rajanayagam, General Secretary, Postal Accounts
and had discussions with the study group.
On behalf of our CHQ we welcomed the
introduction of PRP, as the same will be the second
component of hike in salary apart from the existing
conventional method of safety with annual increments
etc. We insisted that the PRP should be measured
on the performance of work and not on profit since we
are committed to Universal Postal Service obligation.
The scientific formula availed for Productivity Linked
Bonus may be suitably modified to evolve the excess
work performed by the Postal officials. We demanded
that the frui t of PRP shoul d be di stri buted
proportionately form ED to Directorate on yearly basis
and it should not be on the basis of individuals or based
on the CRS etc. The study team heard our
suggestions patiently and the questions put forth by
them were effectively replied.
Defered Indefinite Strike from 24-04-2007 &
Progress in the settlement
The CWC meeti ng of our uni on hel d at
Karimnagar from 22-12-2006 to 23-12-2006 resolved
to call upon NFPE to start intensive nationwide
campaign culminating in an indefinite strike on the
following demands:
(i) Exempt Postal Department from the purview of
ban on recruitment of posts and Screening
Committee and fill up all vacant posts.
(ii) Drop the proposed move to outsource postal
business by franchisee outlets.
(iii) Constitution of a separate Judicial Committee
for Gramin Dak Sevaks on par with Justice
Charanjeet Talwar Committee.
(iv) Set right the anomalies in the pay scales of
the postal employees by implementing the S.C.
Dutta Committee agreed recommendations.
(v) Ensure monopoly of the Postal Departments
in the proposed Post Office Act Amendment
Bill in respect of collection, conveyance and
delivery of letter mail articles.
(vi) Complete take over of SB and PLI by the Postal
Department and grant of full autonomy to the
Postal Board as in the case of Railway Board.
Based on the decisions the CHQ took efforts
which resulted in the Postal JCA issuing strike notice
to the department for the indefinite strike from 24-04-
2007 demanding settlement of 10 point charter of
demands. A countrywide campaign was organised
and the demands were popularised. Even though there
was no financial demand, the strike decision was widely
welcomed by the Group 'C' comrades since their
problems were placed prominently in the strike charter.
Consequent upon the talks held with the
Secretary, Department of Posts on 19-04-2007, the JCA
decided to defer the indefinite strike. During negotiations,
the long pending problems of Group C was given
prominence by our CHQ. The following are a few
decisions pertaining to the concern of Group C comrades.
At the outset, it is pertinent to note that the
department has prepared a cabinet note, which was
approved by the Minister, is under process and will be
placed soon in the cabinet.
Shortage of staff & filling up of vacant posts
(i) Pending residual vacancies in PA cadres from
1999-2000 to 2005-06 wi l l be fi l l ed up.
(Directorate has issued orders for that effect
vide letter No. 60-5/2007-SPB.I dated 15-05-
2007) Approximately, there may be more than
13000 posts in this category. The feed back
on this issue from the circles is still awaited.
(ii) The syllabus of the LGO question paper will be
modified and liberalised according to the
requirement of job (Revised syllabus is enclosed
along with the report)
(iii) An additional LGO exam will be conducted in
the month of November 2007. (Now it is proposed
to held either September or October 2007)
(iv) One more additional chance will be given to
the candidates' who have exhausted six
chances.
(v) Unfilled vacancies even thereafter will be thrown
open to GDS possessing plus two qualification
with age limit. (The revised Recruitment Rules
is under preparation at Directorate for that effect)
In short, in future all the vacancies earmarked
under 50% to promotional quota will be filled up
certainly either by the Postmen / Group D or with GDS.
Thi s we can take i t as an achi evement and
advancement in finding ways to mitigate the sufferings
of Group 'C' comrades due to shortage of staff.
With regard to alleviate the sufferings due to
shortage of staff, the following decisions were taken.
(i) OTA will be granted to Postal Operative Staff to
manage the excess work due to absenteeism &
shortage.
(ii) Retired pensioners can be employed to work
against the shortage.
16 BHARTIYA POST OCTOBER, 2007
(iii) An internal committee will be constituted to fix
honorarium / incentive for the additional works like IMT,
Passport Processing, IT Returns etc. It was assured
to grant incentive to all the Marketing Executives.
The CHQ is processing the above and will
pursue further to get clear and clarity orders.
Filling up the LSG, HSG-II & HSG-I posts
(i) It was assured to fill up all LSG / HSG.II/HSG.I
posts in time bound action. All APMG / AD
staffs were summoned to Directorate on 04-
05-2007 and clarified the positions, directing
them to complete the process of LSG notional
promotion before 30-06-2007.
(ii) The Directorate will deal the pecuniary situation
prevailing in Orissa Circle and a team will be
deputed to reconcile the notional promotion.
(iii) The Directorate has caused instructions that
the notional promotion to LSG is not a one-
time exercise and can be reconciled at any
time. All Circle Heads were instructed to verify
the date of notional promotion. This is based
on our request that there are some irregularities
in some circles in granting notional promotion.
(iv) There was a meeting held on 21-05-2007 at
Directorate to discuss about the position of
LSG, HSG.II & HSG.I promotion. Since the CHQ
did not get feed back from all the Circles, the
pending issues brought to its notice could alone
be discussed and redressed.
Most of the vacant HSG.II & HSG.I posts have
been filled up by this time in all circles. A detailed
feedback is requested in the event of non-adherence
of any provisions of the above said orders.
With regard to other items, like closure of post
offices, curtailment of delivery etc. it was assured that
there will be no closure or curtailment. Regarding
Franchisee Postal Outlets, it will be reviewed and
decided shortly.
The department agreed to consider and cause
orders to absorb all the approved RRR candidates
awaiting like Tamilnadu Circle irrespective of the
outcome of the court judgement. The CHQ is very
sincerely pursuing this case and hope that the
approved candidates will be appointed in regular
vacancies shortly.
Another important outcome of the discussions
is to cause instructions about application of Bench Mark
in LSG promotion. The Directorate caused detailed
instructions vide its letter No. 137-04/2006-SPB.II (Pt)
dated 16-05-07 in which it is clarified as under: -
(i) The ACRs in respect of all the officials should
be written by the reporting officers with proper and
due application of mind.
(ii) The Reporting / Reviewing Officers should take
into account the benchmarks for promotion and that
benchmarks are known to the officers while writing
the ACRs.
(iii) The DPC whi l e assessi ng the ACRs for
promotion of officials to various grades should not be
merely guided by the overall grading given by the
Reporting / Reviewing officers but also satisfy
themselves by an objective assessment of the ACRs.
(iv) While prescribed benchmark should not be
diluted, the DPC should be realistic and objective in
their assessment in order to avoid unnecessary staff
grievances and depriving the due claims of the staff for
promotion.
As per the assurances given in the conciliation
talks, the Directorate has issued the above instructions
since the application of benchmark system cannot be
dropped due to the guidelines of the DOP&T during
2002.
In nutshell, whatever agreed during the talks,
we are pursuing continuously for its implementation.
Remaining issues will be pursued further. It is pertinent
to mention that the CHQ is handicapped due to non
receipt of feedbacks from the Circle unions. It is our
fervent appeal to all our Circle Secretaries to assist
the CHQ by providing adequate information, in the
days-to-come.
Filling up of norm-based LSG, HSG.II & HSG.I
posts -- our Task
The problem of filling up of norm-based LSG
pots notionally remains pending since 2002. Similarly,
there are lot of anomalies in filling up of HSG.II & HSG.I
posts. We had given top priority in solving this issue
and continuing our efforts to end the protracted delay
in according due promotions to the senior officials.
Based on our request, the Directorate issued
orders vide its letter No. 4-16/2002-SPB.II dated 20-
11-2006 prescribing the checklist to accord promotions
in LSG, HSG.II & HSG.I cadres. The Directorate
granted relaxation of rules and provided to grant HSG.I
promotion without observing any minimum service in
HSG.II. (The Department is processing to release
Revised Recruitment Rules for HSG.I and will be
released shortly.)
In the sai d order i n Para supra, i t was
categorically stated that before according HSG.I
promotion, the notional LSG & HSG.II promotions from
1982 (or 1983) to 2002 should be ensured. Secondly,
the 1/3rd LSG vacancies earmarked for general
category from 24-01-2002 to 18-05-2006 should be filled
up on notional basis and all the vacant posts after 18-
05-2006 be filled up accordingly.
But to our dismay, despite the issue of clear
and crystal order with check list by the Directorate, the
process was not conducted in many circles and seniors
were retiring without getting their due HSG.I promotions.
17 BHARTIYA POST OCTOBER, 2007
Hence we had included this item as one of the charter
of demands in the proposed indefinite strike.
After the discussions, things were moving very
fast. In many circles, the vacant posts of LSG, HSG.II
& HSG.I are being filled up based on the checklist
contained in the order dated 20-11-06. However,
except from few circles, the CHQ did not get feedback
on this issue.
The following problems have erupted after
declaring the LSG as Circle cadre or treating LSG as
divisional cadre since 1986 to 2006.
(i) Si nce the LSG noti onal promoti ons are
accorded on divisional basis, in some divisions
due to more number of LSG posts in existence,
the juniors could get LSG promotion whereas
seniors in other division could not get his
promotion due to dearth of LSG posts.
(ii) The officials' availed Rule 38 transfers during
1986 to 2006 are the victims and they could
not get their LSG promotions based on the
divisional gradation list.
Hence, we pleaded with the Department to sort
out the issue by granting 'Modification of LSG' as one
time measure by creating adequate supernumerary
or non-functional LSG posts to accommodate them
on promotion.
During discussions, it was told that modification
couldn't be applied due to various CAT judgements
and the deci si on of Apex court on thi s i ssue
pronounced after the release of 'Modification of BCR'
in 1996. Alternate suggestion was invited.
This CWC should discuss and debate the issue
at length and guide the General Secretary for further
action.
Si mi l ar i s the case of APM Accounts,
Accountant issues. This should also to be sorted out
in this CWC meeting.
Accordi ng t o t he LSG Account ant
Recruitment Rules 1976, the date of qualifying the
PO and RMS Accountant Exams shall be the factor
for promotion to APM Accounts (LSG). At the time
of upgradation of 1622 LSG posts to HSG.II / HSG.I
etc., all APM Accounts posts were upgraded either
to HSG.II or HSG.I. Hence there are no sufficient
posts available in the feeder cadre. Hence we
insisted to downgrade the HSG.II APM Accounts
post to some extent to provide LSG promotions to
PO & RMS Accountants and ensure 40:40:20 so
t hat channel of promot i on of PO and RMS
Accountants shall be confirmed.
The Department is very categorical that the PO
and RMS Accountant who could get LSG promotion
much earlier than General line will occupy most of the
HSG.II & HSG.I as in the past and this shall not be
allowed. The Secretary Generals of NFPE & FNPO
are also opined that this should not be repeated by
implementing the LSG Accountant Rule 1976. The
contention of the Secretary Generals that for qualifying
the exam, they have been paid Special Allowance and
thereafter they have no right to claim HSG.II & HSG.I.
I suggested the following in the meeting.
(i) Accounts line may be declared as a separate
cadre and number of HSG.II & HSG.I may be
provided to the requirements for ensuring
promotion to the qualified Accountants.
(ii) The qualified officials who did not get LSG
promotion in Accounts line may join in the main
stream of Postal Assistants and as and when
due for regular LSG (General Line) post based
on the PA Gradation List.
(iii) As per the instructions of the Directorate issued
in 1958 & 1959, fresh options may be obtained
from the PO and RMS Accounts qualified officials
either to opt or opt out from Accounts line.
The department in sharp reaction maintained
that there is no chance of maintenance of two gradation
lists for one cadre and keeping two avenues of
promotional chances is against the instructions of
DOP&T. We did not subscribe to the revival of old
defunct cadre of PO and RMS Accountant.
The problem is now static as no consensus
could be arrived among the staff side. The CWC may
discuss at length on this issue and find out the solution
and enlighten the CHQ about how this can be taken
up further.
Similarly, the Circle Secretary, AP Circle
suggested that the present position of posting junior
most TBOP / BCR in single handed or supervisory
posts should be dispensed with as TBOP / BCR is
only financial upgradation. This may also be discussed
and decided.
If these issues are sorted out, we could get a
piece of relief from this long pending issue dragging
over six years.
Other Problems confronting Postal Group C
[i] The Department has rejected our plea to waive
the amount being paid towards fixation of pay to
postmen at the time of implementation of Fifth Pay
Commission. This was resulted in huge recovery of
over-payment from the APM Accounts and
Accountants who are not really directly responsible
for the loss sustained as stipulated under Rule 11 of
CCS [CCA] Rules.
This CWC may discuss this issue and decide
an appropriate measure to be adopted by the CHQ.
[ii] The Department has caused instructions vide
letter NO.22-5/95-PE I dated 21.5.07 stating that if an
official declines regular promotion after getting pay
scale under TBOP / BCR promotion schemes, his/
18 BHARTIYA POST OCTOBER, 2007
her placement in the higher pay scale under BCR
Scheme / Promotion would be delayed for the period
he/she declined regular promotion. This is against the
spirit of the TBOP / BCR Schemes. The misuse / wrong
application of powers by the Member [P] is causing a
concern. This CWC may also discuss and debate this
issue and also all the problems put forth for discussion
in the Departmental Council.
TBOP / BCR Higher Pay Scale - Court case
The next haring of the court case has come up
for hearing on 30.8.07. We discussed with our Advocate
in detail and explained the discrimination meted out
to the Postal TBOP and BCR Officials in comparison
with the Telecom TBOP and BCR Officials. In its
present forms the betterment of ACP Promotions than
the TBOP / BCR was also pointed out except for the
fact that ACP Scheme either denies or postpones
further upgradation for those who are promoted through
limited departmental examinations. The Note prepared
and discussed with our Advocate is enclosed as an
item of the Annexure.
Recognition of Federation
In the charter of demands placed during
indefinite strike from 24-04-2007, recognition of
federati on was pl aced as one of the i tems for
settlement. The CHQ in its circular on the demands
and justification mentioned the position of NFPE &
our demand on recognition to Federation along with
AIPEDE Union.
Unfortunately, the Department of Personnel vide
its No. 2/5/2006-JCA dated 19-04-07 informed that All
India Postal Extra Departmental Employees Union
included as one of the affiliates of the Federation by
the NFPE is not eligible and the same will not be
accepted. Based on the same, the department in its
letter dated 24-04-07 asked the Federation to modify
the constitutional provisions of NFPE as per the
observations of Department of Personnel contained in
its letter dated 19-04-2007.
As a responsible affiliate of NFPE, and after
pursuing all the records like minutes of the Federal
Executive, the consent letter given by the then General
Secretary, Com. R.N. Chaudhary, the General
Secretary has given a letter to department to exhibit
its commitment to continue in the NFPE and the
required amendments in the constitution could be made
only in the Federal Council.
We have indicated our stand through our editorial
published in the Bhartiya Post July 2007 issue. We
don't want to mingle the issue and mudsling each other.
The only opinion left with us at that time has been
exercised with the good intention that after getting
recognition we should fight together with the Government
on this issue and get affiliation to GDS union, we
insisted sincere and serious efforts in this regard.
But things are moving in many directions. The
reality has not been accepted. Unwarranted, unethical
bitterness between the Federation & ED Union is
developed due to various provoking letters & court
cases filed by some vested interests. The larger
interest of the postal unions has been sidelined and
the need that we should show our oneness to achieve
the Judicial Committee to GDS as the Finance
Ministry has now rejected to remit the GDS issues to
Sixth Pay Commission. This is causing a serious
concern.
As the responsible worker of the CHQ, I wish
to put forth before the august CWC that we should
evolve some strategy to wind up the present unpleasant
situation and it is possible to unite and fight together
against the Government policies. We can find out the
working solution to keep the GDS union in NFPE even
though Government did not accept and extend all the
rights but to get recognition, we can make the
arrangements outsi de the consti tuti on of the
Federation and keep the GDS Union as an associate
member of the NFPE.
No one desires to delink each other; the GDS
union's genuine claim is also not to severe the ties
but to remain in NFPE. The NFPE is also intending
to avail the recognition first in order to revive and
restore the negotiating forums from Circle level to
JCM [NC] since the Government and the Department
sideline the postal issues and to keep the GDS union
as part & parcel of the NFPE. Even though NFPE
applied for recognition with GDS Union, the DO P&T
and the DOP time and again rejected and it has no
other alternate now or to remain without recognition
whi ch wi l l i rreparabl e l oss at the ti me of
implementation of Sixth CPC. The small difference
can be easily sorted out with open mind instead of
approaching legal methods and develop the gap wider
and wider.
Since the ED Union is unique only to the Postal
department, we may explore all out possibilities to
bring them affiliated to our Federation in the future. It
i s possi bl e onl y through sustai ned conti nuous
struggles; exerting the best political pressures etc.
To achieve all this, unity among us is a must. Without
ED Union, it is not possible to organise any struggles
in future by the departmental unions. Similar is the
position to ED union also. When the situation is like
that, the individual programmes, casting attacks and
the legal fight will further increase enemity and spoil
the amity. The department and the bureaucracy will
take advantage of the situation.
The Central Working Committee meeting may
discuss the issue in depth and guide the General
19 BHARTIYA POST OCTOBER, 2007
Secretary.

The Confederation National Executive has met
on 14.08.2007 i mmedi atel y after the Nati onal
convention of the Central and State Government
employees and teachers' Organizations and endorsed
the decisions of the national convention. It also decided
to chalk out nationwide campaign programmes for
effective mobilization of employees for the strike. NFPE
Federal Secretariat which met after the above meetings
decided to place the demand of Judicial Commission
for GDS as number one demand in the Charter for
strike to be submitted to the Government.
It is pertinent to mention here that our CHQ is
attendi ng al l the meeti ngs convened by the
Confederation and contributing our views. All
programmes of Confederation are being carried out
properly.
Quota -- Failure of Branches
Despite our repeated requests, many divisions
20 BHARTIYA POST OCTOBER, 2007
did not remit due quota to Federation resulting in
reduction of entitlement of Federal Councillors to only
19 in the ensuing Federal Council. This causes a
concern. All Circle Secretaries are requested to
ensure prompt remittance of quota to Federation in
future. Similarly, notices have been issued to many
of the branches on 14-07-07 for their non-remittance
of quota to CHQ over one year. The copies of the
same were sent to the Circle Unions. The circle
unions are requested to evince interest in regulating
the branches for the prompt remittance of quota to
all higher ups.
Bhartiya Post
Since our assumption, we tried our level best
to improve the contents and also to enrol more
subscribers to the Bhartiya Post. It is sorry state of
affairs, despite our requests, we are printing still less
than 5000 copies every month even though we are
having more than 75,000 membership. Our sister
unions are printing their journals to the extent of 15,000
and more who are having lesser membership.
Branch Secretaries are not evincing interest
to indent more copies for their branches and their
due remittances. More than 85% branches are
getting single copy only for their branch. The
constitutional provisions like subscribing for journals
by all office bearers, committee members etc. has
not been adhered. Unless we improve the readers
and more subscribers for the Bhartiya Post, our
sincere and dedicated activities will not reach the
rank & file membership who is the pillar of this
organisation.
The escalating cost of printing etc has at present
increased the cost of the journal to Rs.6/- per copy.
This CWC is requested to discuss this issue also at
length and arrive at decisions to direct the branches in
this regard. The opinion / criticism on Bhartiya Post is
invited with open mind to correct the lapses if any and
improve the journal in the days to come.
New Website for P-III CHQ
The CHQ has opened a website exclusively for our P-
III CHQ and at fi rst, the memorandum to Pay
Commi ssi on was exhi bi ted. Thereafter, al l the
important letters, circulars, Directorate orders are being
exhibited then and there which is being welcomed by
the rank & file. We have decided to utilise the modern
technology further to flash all the developments then
and there. Our website address is as follows:
http://aipeup3chq.blogspot.com
One Day Token Strike on 14-12-2006
Even though the issue was discussed in the last
working committee held at Karimnagar on 22-12-2006,
the details we collected about the participation of strike
as per circle wise is really overwhelming and the
enclosure will prove our strength & weakness and we
should take this as a guiding note to improve the areas
where we should concentrate. The overall percentage
of more than 50% is really a welcoming one.
However, an effective campaign by conducting
various Trade Union classes exclusively on our history,
and future responsibilities should be organised
effectively in the days to come to strengthen further
our movement for future struggles.
Periodical Meetings and Departmental Councils
Despite clear orders and agreement on JCM, the
periodical meetings & Departmental JCM are not being
conducted properly as per the time schedule. No
periodical meeting / JCM is held since our assumption
in the CHQ over 11 months. We could discuss the
problems in the informal meetings alone that did not yield
the desired results. Many important issues could not
be sorted out due to non-conduct of formal meetings.

and pass suitable resolution requesting the Federation
to launch agitational programme if the periodical
meetings are not convened in a time frame.
Let us surmount this financial crunch
It is painful to note that the Confederation is
facing financial crunch and none of our branches is
remitting contribution to the Confederation and this is
coming as a subject matter in all the meetings of the
Confederation National Executive.
The NFPE Federal Secretariat also has made
an appeal for collection and remittance of Rs.10/-
per member to the Federation whose finance has
reached nil balance. The NFPE is forced to spend
for conducting a legal battle also under its condition
of poor finance.
Taking into consideration of all these aspects,
It is suggested that all the Divisional / Branch Unions
may collect Rs. 20/- per member and remit Rs. 3/- to
Confederation through All India Union and Rs. 7/- to
CHQ as Donation and Rs.10/- to NFPE so that we
could stabilise with good financial position.
The CWC may take appropriate decision in this regard.
Settlement of Problems
Our task and strategy should be to explore and
avail the avenues and make efforts at appropriate levels
and settle the cases. We should accomplish this job
efficiently and relentlessly.
My appeal to Circle Secretaries
The Ci rcl e Secretari es shoul d gui de the
members to represent their cases to the appropriate
authorities and pursue the same. They should also
ensure their letters are promptly attended to at the
regional / circle level. The CHQ will certainly pursue
the cases at the level of the Directorate. For this
22 BHARTIYA POST OCTOBER, 2007
A NOTE ON TBOP/BCR COURT CASE
The Case filed by the All India Postal Employees
Union Group 'C' demanding higher pay scale to TBOP/
BCR has been di smi ssed by the Central
Administrative Tribunal on the following grounds:
1. As there would be no justification for interfering with
the fixation of pay scales as there is no hostile
discrimination is made out; and
2. The applicants who are enjoying TBOP and BCR
benefits are better placed than who are given ACP
benefits after V CPC.
[i] TBOP, BCR Promotions are not only unique to the
Postal department but also in existence in the
Telecom. The TBOP Promotion was introduced for
both Post and Tel ecom by the erstwhi l e P&T
Department and the TBOP/BCR promotions prevailing
in Telecom is similar and identical to that of postal
department. The ratio of matching savings is also one
and the same.
In the Department of Telecommunications, the
TBOP & BCR scales for the restructured cadres
having the entry basic of Rs. 3200/- and Rs. 4000/-
are in the basic of Rs.5000-8000 and Rs.5500-9000
respectively. The entry grade of Rs.32001- has been
granted TBOP in the pay scale of Rs.5000-8000.
Orders for this effect had been issued vide D.O.[T]
l etter No.1-38/98-MAP dated 20.4.99 whi l e
implementing the agreement made between the
Department of Telecommunications and Telecom
Federation which reads:
" 9-A(1). An official who after getting qualified
and trained enters the restructured cadre before
completion of 16 years of service in the prestructured
feeder cadre shall be placed in the TBOP scale of the
restructured cadre recommended by the 5th CPC on
completion of 16 years of total service including that
rendered in the pre-structured cadre provided he/she
has put in a minimum of 4 years of service including
the officiating spell in the restructured scale."
Subsequently, this condition of four years
service in the restructured scale of Rs.4000-6000 has
also been removed vide DOT No.1-38/98-MPP dated
20.9.99, which reads interalia: "The-matter has been
considered and it has been decided to remove the
condition of minimum of four years service In the
restructured cadre for such officials."
Thus there is a clear discrimination of pay scales
between the postal and telecom in respect of pay
scales of TBOP and BCR. The TBOP Official in Postal
is drawing Rs. 4500/- scale after 16 years of service in
the pay scale of Rs.4000-6000; whereas the officials
in Rs.3200/- pay scale is receiving Rs.5000-8000 pay
scale on completion of 16 years of service. This exhibits
the discrimination between the two equals and the
TBOP, BCR officials in Postal are denied and deprived
of their due.
[ii] Another version that the TBOP and BCR
promotions are better than the ACP holds no reasoning.
The Promotion under ACP is accorded after 12 years
service and TBOP is only after 16 years. Similar is
the condition for BCR, which is granted after 26 years
whereas the II ACP is granted after 24 years. There is
an erosion of wages and the officials are at loss of
one/two increments. the table furnished alongwith this
note will prove the facts. Thus the TBOP/BCR is no
way is advantageous while comparing with ACP
despite the matching savings to the extent of 20%
and 6% in supervisory and operative posts respectively.
In fact there is a double loss is emouluments to the
officials as well as the matching savings given out by
the officials for TBOP/BCR in comparision to ACP
Scheme.
purpose, the first requirement is that the cases
should have been represented earlier at the circle
level. The Circle Secretaries may prepare the list of
cases represented at their level with all the relevant
details and send the same to CHQ, which in their
opinion have not been settled at their level within a
reasonable period. Similarly, whenever, the request
is made for feedback on important issues, we did
not get proper reply resulting innumerable problems
remai n unsettl ed duri ng di scussi ons wi th the
department.
Comrades! Wi th si ncere devoti on and
dedication, the CHQ has functioned during the months
under review. If any appreciations are there, it is for
the collective working and goes to the entire team of
CHQ. If any shortcomings are noticed, as the Chief
Executive, I borne the responsibility and take them as
advises for the future functioning.
Comrades! Let us work together! Let us lead
the movement further for the betterment of our
comrades! Let us glorify our movement with our full
devotion and dedication for a new dimension.
With warm greetings,
Yours fraternally,
K.V. Sridharan
General Secretary

Use of statutory powers vested with the
administrative officers in the Circles.
Transfer and posting in respect of officers is
generally done by the competent authority who has

instances have been brought to notice of this office

2. I have been directed to inform you that in such
instances where the higher authority intends to exercise
the power vested with the lower authority, then the same
needs to be brought to the notice of the Directorate,

such an exercise of power is undertaken.

Ministry of Communication & IT letter No. 6-1/2006-
PE-II dated : 10-08-2007
THIS INDEPENDENCE day, the list of gallantry
award winners had two unusual names. Unusual,
because they weren't from the army lime such winners
typically are, but from the postal department.
The Government of India has decided to honour
two postal department officials from the Uttar Pradesh
circle with the Kirti Chakra, posthumously. The Kirti
Chakra is the second most important Indian military
award and is awarded for self-sacrifice and valour.
Dayanand Pandey and Mohammad Shan
Ahmad were shot dead by miscreants in two separate
incidents, while they were trying to protect government
money. The Department of Posts, UP Circle, had
recommended their names for the Ashoka Chakra.
The department has also offered jobs to Ahmad's son
Fi roz and Pandey' s daughter Pri yanka on
compassionate grounds.
Pandey was shot dead on August 8, 2005, at
the Akbarpur post office, when unidentified men
entered the post office and attempted to take off with
Rs. 3.38 lakh in cash. However, Pandey fought the
assailants and managed to save the government
money, but lost his life in the process. He was then
postal assistant in the Department of Posts.
Ahmad was gunned down i n Jhansi on
December 26, 2005, while he was on his way back
from a bank with Rs. 16.2 lakh in cash. A gang of six
masked looters attacked him and tried to snatch the
bag. When he resisted, the attackers shot him and
fled the place with the bag. However, he did not leave
the bag till the attackers shot him twice in the chest.
"This is the first time a postal department
employee has been conferred with such a prestigious
award," said Abha Singh, director, postal services.
"Firoz has already joined postal services at the
Jhansi sub-post office. But we are still waiting for our
di rectorate' s approval for Pri yanka Pandey' s
appointment. Priyanka has done her Master's in
economics and I'm sure she is going to be an asset to
the department," she added.
"My mother received a letter from the Home
Ministry on Thursday, informing her that my father has
been bestowed with the Kirti Chakra. We are happy
that both the Government of India and the Department
of Posts has recognised his sacrifice. My father
devoted his life to his work and died because of his
devotion," Firoz told HT.

READER'S FORUM
Your editorial "Operation Abolition- the Solution"
in Aug. 2007 issue is exemplary. I have not seen such
writings for a long period.
Regardi ng your suggesti ons about
commercialization of some postal service, my opinion
is that service union should stick on the principle that
the postal service is a Public service and it should not
be made commercial for any purpose, because rural
people who are in india expect Public service from
the Postal Department.
Kindly refer to DoP & PW OM 38/58/06-PW(A)
dated 11-10-06 published in Bhartiya Post Feb. 2007
issue page 2. The JCM wanted that employees who
spent on induction training before 01-01-04 should be
covered by CCS (Pension) Rules. Group 'C' directly
recruited employees are given induction training in
PTC and they are paid not salary by stipend only.
The OM referred to above says those who are paid
salary during training period before 01-01-04 will
be covered by CCS(P) Rules 1972. So, the OM is
not beneficial to Group C employees, but it is
beneficial to IAS, IPS officers, whose training period
is treated as duty and therefore they are paid
salaries. I am definite that JCM has not taken up
the case for IPS.

Begulled postal workers when scattered and disunited,
Abjectly tormented since heavily worked and shabbily treated.
Bargain for minimum wage and fixed duty hour,
Unimaginable awaiting of postal workers for an emanclpetor.
Thou emerged as a sincere friend and ardent lover,
Awakening a keen class consciousness as an accredited leader.
Radiant charisma with grandiose communication and outstanding character,
Accelerated struggle against rampant injustice to employees welfare.
Pioneered the spirit of unionism and laid the foundation,
Aspired Calcutta Postal Club incognito grew to Central Union
Democratic leadership techniques taught workers to be dearer,
Admonishing the aghast workers that they are not cheaper.
Mission for workers' welfare dismissed thou from service,
Undismayed with shattered personal life for selfless sacrifice.
Kept thy balance till death to continue the commotion with vigour,
Humble workers remember thy martyrdom on twentieth September.
Evermore up-keeping the goodwill of the Union shall be befitting honour,
Righteous and faithful postal workers solemnly this day thus swear.
Just no rest, no compromise till demands are settled,
Irrepressible struggle for common cause and to march ahead.

JODHPUR HIGH COURT CASE
The writ petition filed by GDS Unions Rajasthan Circle
against Recognition of NFPE which was stated for hearing
on 24th August, 2007 has been postponed to 17th September,
2007. Our Advocate was present on 24th August, 2007.
BILASPUR HIGH COURT CASE
G.D.S. Union Chattisgarh Circle has filed a writ
petition against NFPE at Bilaspur High Court. We have
deputed a Senior Advocate.
NEGOTIATING FORUMS JEOPARDIZED
Due to various Writ petitions filed by GDS Union
against NFPE not only huge expenditure is incurred but
also jeopardized the interest of the regular postal
employees. All negotiating forum such as Postal
Departmental Coucil JCM, Postal Regional Council JCM,
nominations to the National Council JCM, periodical
meetings with DG (Post), Postal Central Welfare Board
meetings have become defunct. In all these forums only
issues of Group 'C', Postmen/Mailguards and Group 'D'
employees of Department of Posts are being discussed.
All these forums are in jeopardy. Total loss has been
deliberately brought about by writ petitions to the regular
Postal Workers. These forums are not for GDS and
therefore, this will not hamper in any manner GDS interests.
SPECIAL DONATION
The NFPE utilized these forums for the cause of
GDS than regular employees in all occasions. By filing
writ petitions in various Courts against NFPE they have
not only jeopardized the interest of the regular staff of the
Department of Posts but also the interest of the GDS.
The pique situations created by GDS Union through Court
Cases to be explained to the postal employees to defeat
32 BHARTIYA POST OCTOBER, 2007
malicious Campaign.
FINANCE
The NFPE Federal Secretariat held on 14th August,
2007 unanimously decided to call upon entirety of Postal
Workers to donate Rs. 10/- per member to the NFPE to
effectively face the Court Cases filed by GDS Union in
various Courts. The case filed by BPEF at Chennai High
Court also is at the end of final hearing. We have to pay
fees to Advocates at Chennai also. We would request all
General/Circle/Divisional/Branch Secretaries to see that
the donation is reached NFPE HQs immediately.
DA
The Govt. has ordered enhancement of DA from
1st July, 07 @ 6% of Pay+DP.i.e. 35% to 41%.
BONUS
The NFPE leaders met Secretary Posts on 3rd
August, 2007 and urged him to pay eligible PLB to Postal
Employees without any reduction. The eligible Bonus for
2004-05 was 62 days and 2005-2006 was 63 days.
However only 60 days were paid as Bonus to Postal
Employees. We have demanded to remove the Cap of 60
days and pay actual PLB to Postal Staff.
With Fraternal greetings.
