HARSH ORDER BY THE DEPARTMENT (DIRECTORATE) ON THE ISSUE OF TRCA GDS EMPLOYEES

It is declared by the Directorate that new look is to be given to TRCA slab
corresponding to 87.5 points, 112.5 points and 125 points. In this connection, the relook stipulates 1 point for Rs. 20,000/- cash handling in a month. The amount of Rs. 20,000/- fixed for one point in a month is not only arbitrary but it is also impractical. The TRCA slab will change according to the points earned in any month. In the said Order it is also stated that the remittances received from Accounts Office and sent to Accounts Office are to be excluded from the total handling of the cash due to this arbitrary condition.
There will be negative effect in computing the earning of monthly points. This will result in effect on the slab of TRCA. The most affected category will be BPM of the rural area.
In my letter No. FNPO/GDS Pay Commission/2/09 dated 23-11-2009 in Para 6 the matter was already brought to the notice of the Directorate, but it has been overlooked in the circumstances. It is felt that the poor GDS employees are subjected to arbitrary pressure onesidedly. It is therefore, called upon the GDS employees to unite to take back the order for reconsideration. The Federation on its parts will take necessary steps in the matter.

NEW TRCA SLAB CORRESPONDING TO 87.5 POINTS; 112.5 POINTS; & 125 POINTS HAS TO BE ASSESSED AFRESH WITH REFERENCE TO THE WORKLOAD.

THOSE WHO ARE IN PLACES WITH 75 POINTS AND GOT EQUIVALENT TRCA SLAB OF Rs. 2745-50-4245 AND THOSE WHO ARE AT 100 POINTS AND GOT THE TRCA SLAB OF 3660-70-5760 WILL NOT FACE ANY REDUCTION OF WAGES. BUT IF THOSE WHO ARE ASSESSED WITH BELOW 100 POINTS ARE PLACED IN 3200-60-5000 SLAB, THEY WILL FACE REDUCTION OF WAGES. IF SOME ARE ASSESSED WITH 112.5 OR 125 POINTS, THEY WILL GET THE HIGHER SLAB OF 4115-75-6365 AND 4575-85-7125. HOWEVER,

THE FIRST MEETING OF THE NATIONAL ANOMALY COMMITTEE WAS HELD ON 12th DEC,2009 Below Mention Discussion & Decisions

D/11/1/2009 Dated: 14th December, 2009

Dear Colleagues,
.
The first meeting of the National Anomaly Committee was held on 12th December, 2009. Secretary (Personnel) chaired the meeting. On behalf of the Confederation, Com. S.K. Vyas, President and Com. K.K.N. Kutty Secretary General attended and participated in the discussion. In the opening remark, Com. Umraomal Purohit drew the attention of the Chairman of the non-functioning of the Departmental Councils in various departments and the consequent non setting up of Departmental Anomaly Committees. He also raised the issue of the order of the DOPT defining the term Anomaly, which was at variance with the one given in 1997. He recalled the discussion he had with the official side in the matter when it was agreed that the definition of the term would be the same as was in the order of 1997. Responding to the remarks made by the Staff Side Secretary, the Chairman said that his office would take steps to ensure the functioning of the JCM at all levels and informed the meeting that the National Council of the JCM would meet on 16th January, 2009 and the notice therefore has already been issued. On the question of anomaly, it was informed by the Chairman, that all efforts would be taken to address all questions of anomaly and resolve them. The official side clarified that all questions of disparity in relativities would also be addressed except on those on which the 6th CPC has gone into and taken decision enumerating reasons. The Chairman asked the staff Side to bring to the notice of the DOPT/DOE of all those items which stand rejected by the concerned Departmental Anomaly Committees taking shelter under the extant definition.
We now reproduce the items which were discussed and the decisions arrived on each of them.


The item Nos. 1 to 4 and 5(iii)(iv) and 7 were grouped together and discussed as they were identical in content. For the sake of convenience, we reproduce item No. 3 which covers all the above mentioned items.


Fixation of Pay in Revised Pay Scale

The VI CPC in Para 2.2.19 (vii) has indicated that where prerevised pay scales have been merged it has been done by extending the existing minimum prescribed for the highest pay scale with which the other scales are being merged. Accordingly it has also been stipulated in 7(1) (A) of the CCS (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008 that if the minimum of the Revised Pay Band / Pay Scale is more that what is determined by multiplying the existing basic pay as on 1.1.2006 by a factor of 1.86 and rounding of the resultant figure to the next multiple of 10, the pay shall be fixed at the minimum of the revised Pay Band / Pay Scale. Note 2B below Rule 7, ibid and illustration 4B given in the Explanatory Memorandum to the Revised Pay Rule apply to cases of merger of Pay Scales. Note 2 B states that pay in the revised Pay Bands will be fixed in the manner prescribed in accordance with Clause (A) (i) And clause (A) (ii) of Rule 7. In illustration 4B a case of an employee in the pre revised pay scale Rs.5000-8000 drawing Rs.5600 as on 1.1.2006 in the pay scale of 6500-10500 has been indicated with which the pay scale of Rs.5000-8000 stands merged.

Taking these into account the pay in the Pay Band in the case of all employees in the Pay Scales of Rs.5000-8000 and Rs.5500-9000 has to be fixed at Rs. 6500 multiplied by 1.86 i.e. Rs.12090. The fixation tables for pay scales 5000-8000 and 5500-9000may therefore be modified fixing the pay in the pay band at Rs.12090 wherever it is less than that amount.

Illustration 4B in the explanatory memorandum to the Revised Pay Rules 2008 may be modified as under:-
Existing Scale of Pay 5000-8000
Pay Band PB-2 9300-34800
Merged with Pay Scale 6500-10500
Existing Basic Pay as on 1.1.06 Rs.5600
Pay in the PB-2 Rs.5600 X 1.86 = 10420 As per Clause (A) (i) of Rule 7(i) of Revised Pay rules 2008
Pay in the PB-2 Rs.6500- X 1.86 = 12090 As per Clause (A) (ii) of Rule 7 (i) of Revised Pay Rules 2008
Grade Pay Rs.4200
Revised Basic Pay Rs.16290

Decision:

The Staff Side pointed out that what has been recommended by the 6th CPC in Para 2.2.19(vii_ in respect of fixation of minimum pay in the Pay band for merged pay scales had not been taken into account while computing the pay band and the table. After some discussion, the official side stated to have a re-look into the matter.

Item No. 5(i)

On Revised Pay Rules. 2008


(i).Option
It has been mentioned under sub rule 4 thereof that the option once exercised shall be final and should be exercised within three months from the date of notification of the rule vide Sub rule I thereof. Since it is very difficult to comprehend and assess the implication of such option, we propose that the first option exercised within three months may not be treated as final and the employees be permitted to revise the option within six month of the date of exercising the first option.


Decision.
The official side has agreed to allow another option. The Side Side also pointed out during the discussion that the option exercised by the officials under F.R. 22(I)(A(1) on promotion has been restricted to only first promotion, which appears to be unreasonable. The official side has agreed to examine whether the above option can be allowed to cover all promotions.

Item No. 5(ii)

(ii). Special allowance and qualification pay which are taken for fixation purposes on promotion should be doubled with effect from 1.1.2006 and not from 1.9.2008 as it cannot be construed to be an allowance. If this is not done, senior employees will suffer loss in emoluments, in case of persons who are promoted during the period between 1.1.2006 and 1.9.2008.

It was pointed out that the item relating to 5th CPC is still pending at the Standing Committee. The Official Side stated that the item would be covered when a decision is taken on the item relating to 5th CPC.

Item No. 5(vi)

(vi) Rule 9. Date of next increment


It is seen after going through the stipulation in the above rules that a person whose increment falls on 1.1.2006 will get the increment on 1.1.2006 in the pre revised pay scale and will get the next increment in the revised pay structure on 1.7.2006 i.e. on expiry of six months. Similarly those, whose next increment is between 1st July, 2006 and 1st December, 2006 would also be granted next increment in the revised pay structure on 1.7.2006. On the other hand, the persons whose increment dates are between 1st Feb. 2006 and 1st June 2006 have to wait for more than 12 months to get the next increment on 1.7.2006. This is quite anomalous. In the case of those who retire during the period between 1st Feb. and 30th June, they will suffer a loss of one increment perpetually thus affecting their pension. It is, therefore proposed that the persons whose increment falls between 1st February and 1st June, 2006 may be given one increment on 1.1.2006 as a one time measure.

The official side agreed to issue orders to cover those in service between 1.1.2006 and 1.7.2006 as a one time measure. The Staff Side however, pointed out that they have made the suggestion for a one time measure on the specific understanding that Rule 9 of the Revised Pay Rules 2008 has no applicable in the fixation of increment date in future as in those cases, the Fundamental Rules will have the application. The Official side was of the opinion that the Revised Pay Rules will override the provisions of the Fundamental Rules. The Staff Side then contended that the increment of an official cannot be postponed except on award of a penalty after initiation of the disciplinary proceedings. The official side after some discussion agreed to reconsider the issue in the light of the contention made by the Staff Side.

Item No. 5(vii).
(vii). Tax deduction from salary:


Spread over of the arrears of salary is permissible under section 89 (a) of the I.T. Act. No tax will thus become payable by Group D employees on account of receipt of arrears eventually. Therefore, executive instructions may be issued not to deduct any tax from the arrears payment pertaining to the Group D employees. In respect of others, they may be allowed to exercise option to tax the arrears either on receipt basis or accrual basis.

Decision .

Since the arrears have all been paid after deduction of tax, this item was not pressed.

Item No. 5(vii)Temporary Status Casual Labourers

As per existing scheme the employees who are afforded temporary status are paid the wages computed with reference to the minimum of the corresponding scale of pay of regular employees. In the case of Group D temporary status employees, it will become necessary that they are afforded the requisite training if they are non- matriculates.

Decision.

Orders would be issued in the case of temporary status employees. In the case of those who died /retired between 1.1.06 and 1.9.2008 grant of grade pay of Rs. 1800 without training was raised by the Staff Side. It was agreed that the Govt. would take a decision in their case favorably.

Item No. 6. Benefit on promotion.

It is an accepted proposition that an employee when promoted to a higher post involving higher responsibility should get a suitable raise in his salary. It was on this consideration that FR 22-C was framed whereby the promote was first granted an increment in the lower Pay Scale and then fixed at the appropriate (next) stage in the higher grade.

At the time of V CPC it was agreed that minimum increase in salary on promotion shall not be less then Rs.100/- There are certain grades in which, on promotion, a hike of Rs.650/- is being allowed with reference to pre-revised pay scale.

In these circumstances grant of only one increment in the lower Pay Band / Pay scale and difference in grade pay, if there be any, being granted on promotion is certainly inadequate. We therefore propose that minimum benefit on promotion should not be less than 10% of the Pay+ Grade Pay of the feeder post.

Decision:

The official side stated that the above item was not covered under the definition of anomaly. However, after some discussion, it was agreed that the official side would further discuss the issue outside the forum of the Anomaly Committee.

Item No. 7. Fixation of pay on promotion.

The minimum Entry pay with Grade Pay in the revised pay structure for direct recruits appointed on or after 1.1.2006 has been specific vide first Schedule, Part –A, Section II of the Gazette Notification of the Govt. of India, Ministry of Finance No. G.S.R. 622 (E) dated 29.8.2008.

On promotion, the pay of the promotes should not be less than the
direct recruits.

In VI CPC structure there is no pay scale and new concept of grade pay has been inducted, which should determine the status. As such the following provisions need to be inserted below clarification 2. 'The method of Fixation of Pay on promotion on or after 1.1.2006.

"on promotion to the higher grade pay of an employee should be fixed appropriately and in any case it should not be less than the entry Pay in the revised pay structure for direct recruits appointed on of after 1.1.2006 for the post." further, on promotion to the next higher grade pay an employee should be fixed by adding 10% of pay, plus the grade pay as demanded by NC/JCM in its memorandum submitted to the Chairman, NC/JCM/Cabinet secretary on 8.4.2008.

Decision.

The Official Side agreed to issue enabling orders in the matter.

Item No. 8. Refixation of pension/family pension.

Para 9 of the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pension's O.M. No. F.No. 38/37/08-P&PW (A) dated 1.9.2008 states as under:-
"The consolidated pension / family pension as worked out in accordance with provisions of para 4.1 above shall be treated as final basic pension with effect from 1.1.2006 and shall qualify for grant of Dearness Relief sanctioned thereafter.".

This has left uncovered the provision made in para 4.2 of the same OM, which lays down as under:-

"The fixation of pension will be subject to the provision that the revised pension in no case, shall be lower than fifty present of the minimum of the pay in the pay band plus the grade pay corresponding to the pre-revised pay scale from which the pensioner had retired. In the case of HAG + and above scales, this will be fifty percent of the minimum of the revised pay scale."

Since refixation of pension has been allowed both under paras 4.1 and 4.2, they should both he covered in para 9 of the OM. It is requested that para 9 of the said OM may be revised including both paras 4.1 and 4.2 thereof.

Decision.

Orders have been issued vide O.M.dated 12th and 14th September, 2009

Item. No. 9. Anomaly in pension for Government Servants who
retired/Died in harness between 1.1.2006 and 1.9. 2006

The Sixth Central Pay Commission lays down inter-alia that once an employee renders the minimum pensionable service of 20 years, pension should be paid at 50% of the average emoluments received during the past 10 months or the pay last down, whichever is more beneficial to the retiring employee.

As per the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pension O.M. F.No. 38/37/08-P&P(W)(A) dated 2nd September 2008, these orders shall come into force with effect from the date of issue of this OM, namely 2nd September 2008 and shall be, applicable to all Government Servants becoming entitled to pension after rendering the minimum qualifying service of 20 years or on completion of 10 years qualifying service in accordance with rule 49(2) of the CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972.

However, the Govt. servants who have retired on or after 1.1.2006 but before the date of issue of this OM (2.9.2008) have been debarred from this benefit. They will be governed by the rules/ orders which were in force immediately before coming into effect of these orders. In other words their pension will be calculated on average emoluments received during the last 10 months and not on the actual pay last drawn. It is requested that this discrimination should be removed.

Decision.

Orders are under issue. The Staff Side raised the inordinate delay in fixing the revised pension and disbursement of arrears to pensioners. The official side assured to monitor the payment of arrears to pensioners. The refusal on the part of many banks to issue the due and drawn statement even on requisition was also brought to the notice of the Chairman. The Director (Pension) assured that suitable instructions would be issued in this regard to all Banks.

Item No.10. Commutation of pension.

The minimum period of service for eligibility for pension is 10 years. For appointment to Government Service the minimum age is 18 years. In view of this, if a person is appointed at the age of 18 years he cannot become eligible for pension unless he has served for a period of at least 10 years and attained the age of 28 years i.e. when his birthday falls in the 29th years.

The table adopted a per the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pension's OM No. 38/37/08-P&PW (A) dated 2.9.2008 shows the minimum age of next birthday after retirement as 20 which is not understood. It is requested that suitable amendment to the table referred to may be notified.

The item was withdrawn by the Staff Side.



Item No.11 to 14. These items were deferred for discussion at the next meeting.

Item No.15.
Parity in pension of all pre 1996 retirees with those who retired on
Or after 1.1.2006


The Government have already accepted in principle that there shall be parity in pension amongst pensioners irrespective of the date from which they had retired.
Accordingly pension of all pre 1986 retirees was revised with effect from 1.1.96 by first determining the notional pay which would have been fixed as on 1.1.86 (treating as if the employees were in service on that date) and then the Notional Pension was updated by applying the same fitment formula which was applied to serving employees.

We, therefore demanded that the notional pay of all pre 1996 retirees may be fixed as on 1.1.96 in terms of Revised Pay Rules, 1996 and the notional pension as on 1.1.96 may be revised w.e.f. 1.1.06 by applying the same fitment formula which is applied in the case of serving employees i.e. by multiplying the notional pension as on 1.1.96 by 1.86 + the Grade Pay of the Pay Scale (V CPC) from which they would have retired.

The revision of pension has been done by applying the formula of Basic Pension as on 1.1.96 + Dearness Pension (50% of Basic Pension) + Dearness Relief on Basic Pension + Dearness Pension+40% of Basic Pension.

This is not the same that has been granted to serving employees. In whose case the Grade Pay which is the fitment benefit is 40% of the maximum of the Pre-revised Pay Scale.
As such the Pensioners should also be granted 50% the of Grade Pay of the Pay Scale from which they had retired by way of fitment benefit and not 40% of Basic Pension.

Decision.

The Staff Side pointed out that the 6th CPC in order to maintain the existing modified parity between the present and future retirees had indicated that it would be necessary to allow the same fitment benefit as is being recommended for the existing Government employees vide para 5.1.47 in page 338. However, the Commission recommended that all past pensioners should be allowed fitment benefit equal to 40% of the basic pension. The statement and the recommendation made to give effect to the statement was at variance giving rise to anomaly and disparity in pension entitlement between the past pensioners and the future pensioners. After detailed discussion, the official side agreed to consider the issue once again.

At the conclusion of the meeting, the Staff Side took up the matter concerning non representation of Postal Federations in the National Council as some members of a Federation which could not muster even 5% membership had been approaching one court or the other in a bid to delay the verification process and consequent recognition of the Associations and Federations in the Postal Department. As it would be a never ending process, the denial for the unions who had mustered more than 75% of the membership representation in the National Council would be a miscarriage of justice, the Staff Side added. The Director (SR) of the Postal Department, who had represented the Postal Department in the official side agreed with the contention of the Staff Side and reported to the Chairman, that they had granted adhoc recognition to the Unions who had mustered the requisite membership and the Department Council had also been convened and met on adhoc basic. The question of granting of representation to the representatives of the Staff in the National Council had been referred to the Department of Personnel and their advice in the matter was being solicited. The Chairman assured the Staff Side to look into the matter and take appropriate decision soon.

The denial of revised higher Grade Pay to Master Craftsmen of Workshops in MMS in the Postal Department, while affording the same to those in Railways and Defence was also raised by the Staff Side. The Department of Expenditure pointed out that they had not received any reference from the Postal Department in this matter, whereas the official side representative of the Postal Department stated that they had referred this matter to them earlier. After some discussion, it was agreed that the Department of Expenditure and the Postal Department would sort out this matter expeditiously.

Modification of GDS wage structure

1-1/RR- GDS                                               dated 12.11.2009

To

The Dy. Director General (Estt.)

Department of Posts,

New Delhi 110 001
Sir,


Ref: - Your letter No. EST/GDS/RSNM/Committee/08 dt. 16.10.09

In Para 2 of Annexure V of the above referred order it is stated that the respective Authorities shall fix the TRCA of all the GDS working under their jurisdiction with reference to their existing work load, Basic TRCA drawn as on 1-1-2006 and send the names of GDS with statement of fixation of TRCA as on 1-1-2006 as per given formula and also intimate the annual increases up to the date of issue of orders to the DDOs.

In this letter no orders were issued for fixation of the TRCA of those GDS officials who’s TRCA was revised after 1-1-2006. Some divisional heads interpreting the work “existing work load” as, work load as on date of revision i.e. after 1-1-2006 and fixing the new TRCA in the new slabs as per the work load, whether it may be 3rd, 4th or 5th. Some divisional heads are interpreting the same work, as work load as on 1-1-2006 and fixing the TRCA as per the TRCA drawn as on 1-1-2006 and allowing three increments and no refixation is being done on the date of revision in pre revised scale. If the intension of the Dept. is to fix TRCA as per the TRCA drawn as on 1-1-2006, there is no need to add the words existing work load. 


This ambiguity needs to be removed and specific orders should be issued.

There must be specific orders, on how to fix the TRCA of those GDS officials whose TRCA was revised after 1-1-2006.

NEW RECRUITS
 
In para 2.1 it was stated as, the TRCA to GDS engaged on or after 1-1-2006 shall be fixed at the minimum of the revised TRCA slab from the date of their engagements. In para 3 it was stated as “the fixation will be done at the minimum of the New TRCA slab applicable as on their date of engagement. What is meant by slab applicable? Whether it is as per the work load of that post? If it is so, if the work load of a B.O.s is 125 points whether a new recruitee can be given minimum TRCA of the 5th Scale?

Orders without any ambiguity may be got issued. 

STAGNATION

Some BPMs are already stagnating in 1st TRCA. This is happening because some GDS SVs in pre revised 2nd scale were redeployed as BPMs with pay protection. After new fixation they are now at stagnation stage.

WORK LOAD CALCULATION 

Till date the work load of the GDS is being calculated on the existing norms only. Many GDS BPMs TRCA is revised from 1st to 2nd TRCA after 1-1-2006 as the work load of NREGS is taking into calculation. As till date no norms are revised, all the GDS officials TRCA should be fixed based on the existing work load and there should not be any ceiling on pay slabs. Fixing of ceiling 3rd scale to BPMs is quite injustice.

If at all the Dept. implements new norms, the date of effect should be prospectively and not retrospective from 1-1-2006.

Yours Sincerely,

(D. KISHN RAO)

To

Shri.A.Raja

Honourable Minister of Communications & IT

Government of India

New Delhi 


Sir, 

          'Efficiency In Postal Mail Service’ - Few Absolute Facts.

                                     Objective of this Memorandum

  This is NOT a memorandum demanding ANY FINANCIAL ADVANTAGE for the employees of the Postal Department. We – the two recognized Federations of Postal Employees of the Department - have got a responsibility to share views on IMPROVEMENT OF POSTAL SERVICES extended to the members of public with MORE EFFICIENCY. Hence, THIS MEMORANDUM, about 'efficiency in postal service' revealing a few absolute facts.

Efficiency Factor

Mails emanate from individual senders and are deliverable to individual addressees and Bulk mails emanate from Institutions and deliverable to individuals/Business Organisations. HOW FAST THIS WORK IS DONE IS THE 'DECIDING FACTOR' OF THE EFFICIENCY OF THE POSTAL SERVICES. When 'speed' i.e. 'Time taken' from the time of posting to the time of delivery of a letter - is the 'deciding factor', naturally 'time' plays an absolute role in the efficiency. No human effort or any amount of money can produce extra time for anybody. Individual or institution either Postal or Private Courier - have got only 24 hours a day, not a minute more or less. Hence, the efficiency depends upon how an individual or institution utilize the 'time' to his/its advantage. In respect of Postal Department, for the purpose of delivery of mail, the efficiency 

Depends upon how, the time, available from the time of posting of a letter to the time of delivery, is utilized without any wastage. Only such a fast service could SATISFY THE INDIAN PUBLIC, who have moved from Postal Services, to Private Couriers. The question now is how to bring back the mails that were 'taken away' by our competitors - Private Couriers. This can be done only by improving our efficiency of 
Processing / transporting/ effecting delivery than our competitors. The quantum of ‘Revenue Loss' caused to the Department due to such a shift of customers to our competitors can be wiped out only by bringing them back and not through any other gimmicks. Gimmicks may result in more expenditure and not revenue. 

What is to be done?

We must, first, find out what is the disease? Only correct diagnosis will result in successful treatment.  

All kinds of letters are posted in various Street Letter Boxes and Post Offices. Mostly members of public and institutions post their letters only in the late evening. This is because they attend to the mails received in the forenoon, process them, make the reply ready and then post them in the evening. Hence, we cannot ask the people to post their letters in the forenoon itself. Therefore, the processing work after clearance , defacing , transportation to a central point (RMS) , detailed processing at this point -- is carried out , connected to trains/flights to reach various destinations for effecting forenoon delivery next day or afternoon depending upon the distance and transportation time factor. The local mails are then processed in the central point (RMS) for effecting delivery next day morning. IF AT ANY PARTICULAR POINT, DURING THIS INTERVAL, THERE IS INEFFICIENCY IN THE PROCESSING, THE DELAY IN DELIVERY OCCURS. 

How the 'inefficiency' can crop up?

  Naturally not utilizing the available TIME for efficient processing and transportation - aiming at early delivery - will result in 'inefficiency'. 

  The above 'mail processing' work consists of two types -  

  1. Administrative 

  2. Technical  

  The administrative part consists of executive actions in arranging for the transport by public carriers and if not available by private agencies, or human labour, the provision of equipment such as accommodation, provision of personnel etc. 

  The technical part consists in taking care of the mail from the time the public place their mail in the custody of the Post Office till the time the Post Office delivers it to the addressee. (Operative arrangements).  

  Now, it seems the private couriers are able to very efficiently carry out both the above items of work, resulting in 'more efficient delivery'.

Why we are not able to achieve the maximum efficiency?

  We feel that the 'Administration' is absolutely ignoring the 'technical part' of the processing and to some extent even administrative part. How?

  As already explained 'efficient time-utilization' is the factor which would result in our CORE COMPETENCE OF EFFICIENT DELIVERY. This factor is absolutely neglected.

  Mails use the same transport as persons. Hence, mail should travel as persons do. Different passengers with different individual destinations are found in the same plane, train, ship or bus. The same applies to mails and it is the most important controlling factor in deciding on processing mails and transportation towards various destinations. It means, if a man could reach a destination - within a timeframe – 

, it must be absolutely possible for a 'mail' also to reach that destination within that timeframe and that is what is called CORE EFFICIENCY. All other acts are compromises, which may not satisfy our members of public. 

  This efficiency can be achieved ONLY if 'time factor' in between the time of posting to the time of delivery is utilized VERY EFFICIENTLY. AT NO POINT OF TIME, MAIL SHOULD BE KEPT IDLE WAITING FOR PROCESSING. 

  Since 'mails' are posted by members of the public only in the evening, naturally they are available for processing late in the evening and night. Time for processing is required depending upon the volume available - which may be till midnight or throughout night. Unless, processing is done during this period, it may not be possible to connect to late night trains/flights and early morning flights for connecting delivery in the forenoon next day. 

  Before 1980s, even the remote corner of the Nation was getting the earliest delivery through efficient postal system. What happened after that?

1. in 1980s, the core-principle of 'utilising the time available from the time of posting to the time of delivery' was made a casuality by an Administrative Order for abolition of 'sorting work' in the running trains. Before that, both sorting work and transportation of mails happened simultaneously - utilizing the same hours - resulting in absolute efficiency in delivery of mails. After abolition of sorting work in running trains, the Department needed 'time' separately for sorting and transportation. Thus, these orders resulted in 'inefficiency'. ONLY AFTER THIS, THE PRIVATE COURIERS ENTERED THE SCENE OF ACCEPTING AND DELIVERING MAILS IN INDIA. It means the inefficiency of an Administrative Order of the Department of Posts, paved way for private couriers.  

2. In 1990s further deterioration started. The 'central processing units' (RMS) were till then functioning in the 'junctions' resulting in fast moving of mails through efficient transportations readily available in those rail/bus junctions. But, again Administrative Orders were issued for establishing 'District Sorting Pattern' and establishing 'Mail Offices' in District Head Quarters, instead of processing at the 'junction' points. These orders resulted in further delay to mails. So, more volume of mails found its way to Private Couriers.  

  Further, Automatic Mail Processing Machines were brought in. The reason for induction of such machines, as told by the administration, was 'efficient service to the members of public'. But, unfortunately, just for the purpose of feeding the machines , mails were accumulated at AMPC , culling machineable mails took further time and then processed through machines leisurely and then connected to transportations available very late. Thus, in the name of efficiency, inefficiency percolated further into the system. Private-courier- business started growing indicating 'these inefficiencies of the Department'.

Most importantly and alarmingly again one-more-order 'ignoring' the efficiency of utilizing the 'time' available at the origin points is under issue. 

  THIS IS HERE, WE REQUEST THE INTERVENTION OF HONOURABLE MINISTER OF COMMUNICATIONS, TO PREVENT DEVELOPING FURTHER INEFFICIENCY in processing mails. If these orders are issued, the last nail will be laid to the mail delivery efficiency. The department will be losing the entire revenue of 'mail business' to the private couriers.

  Since 'mails' are posted by members of the public only in the evening, naturally they are available for processing late in the evening and night. Time for processing is required depending upon the volume available - which may be till midnight or throughout night. Unless, processing is done during this period, it may not be possible to connect to late night trains/flights and early morning flights for connecting delivery in the forenoon next day.

  This 'operational reality' requires CENTRAL POINTS of processing. Since 'postings' by members of public are made in the late evening, processing cannot be done in Post Offices, which are functioning from the morning till only up to 05-00 p.m. Therefore, the CENTRAL POINTS of processing (RMS) which are at the rail-heads or air-heads,(functioning late in the evening and night) are absolutely needed to EFFICIENTLY UTILISE THE 'TIME FACTOR' available to achieve the EFFICIENCY OF FAST DELIVERY to mails.  

  Unfortunately, this core efficiency factor has been IGNORED by the present Postal Administration, by proposing to abolish all CENTRAL PROCESSING POINTS (RMS), which would definitely cause MORE DELAYS IN DELIVERY OF MAILS. In fact the Department of Posts had already merged more than 90 RMS Mail Offices with less than 10,000 mail volume per day as agreed to by the Staff Side on pressure by the Administration to close down more offices. Now, in the name of Second Phase of Mail Consolidation etc all Central Processing Points [RMS] are being merged or abolished. More Transit Sections are being abolished. Sub Record Offices are being targeted also. RMS Divisions are being merged causing weakness in supervision. The decisions of Postal Administration will definitely help only PRIVATE COURIERS in garnering our mail business utilizing the further weaknesses caused by our new measurers. It is beyond our comprehension as to why the 'Postal Administration' is so interested in helping private couriers instead of improving our efficiency?  

To focus attention on all such retrograde moves of the Postal Administration, the Postal Joint Council of Action comprising of all Unions of our two Federations has undertaken an all India Programme of Action and the Department of Posts had also been intimated of our Programmes. The Postal Joint Council of Action has also decided to go on strike from 15th December 2009 if the Department of Posts is not causing any reversal of these orders and moves that are aimed at the total destruction of RMS & MMS services and thereby destroying the efficiency of the whole Postal Department. 

We request the Honorable Minister of Communications to kindly intervene and prevent all these retrograde steps under way and under contemplation of the Postal Administration in order to save the existing EFFICIENCY LEVEL of Mail Processing and Mail Conveyance at least before collapse. We would also request the Honourable Minister of Communications & IT to cause necessary orders for keeping all the retrograde measurers under abeyance and initiate meaningful discussions with our Federations and All India Unions to arrive at collective decisions on improving the mail processing and other activities without destroying the edifice itself. 


Thanking you Sir,

Yours faithfully,

Memorandum submitted by the Circle Unions of NFPE & FNPO to the Chief Postmaster General on 20-11-2009

Respected Sir/Madam,

During the recent months, RMS and MMS are target of attack by the administration, some by Circles and others under the directions of the Postal Board. The services are seriously affected besides creating staff problems.

  The measures implemented/contemplated by Circles are enumerated below:

1. Abolition of sorting offices handling more than 10000 letters. The agreement with staff side has been dishonoured.
2. Abolishing night sets.
3. Closing of SRO's and merging them with Post Office.
4. Merger of sets of mail offices
5. Abolition of Transit sections; running within the Circle
6. Adverse effects in the name of Project Arrow
7. Merger of sets of CRC's
8. Merger of RMS Divisions in Cities
9. Unrealistic norms of CRC's/Speed Post
10. Abolition of RO's
11. Withdrawal of MMS and replaced by CMS
12. Outsourcing many activities
13. Delay to mails, including Speed Post mainly created by Freighter services and wrong mail arrangements, thereby gifting away of mails to courier services.
 
The staff apprehend the above schemes are aimed at "liquidation of RMS" and eventual merger with post offices. We are determined to prevent the above and save RMS, MMS and mails.

The specific cases relating to our Circle are enclosed for review and rectification in a time frame.

The Central JCA has decided to launch agitations including total strike for which Notice will be served after observing the response from the administration at Directorate and Circle level.

Three annexures are enclosed. One the attacks in our Circle and the others the copy of communication addressed to DG and Honorable Minister.

Yours sincerely,

 MEMORANDUM SUBMITTED TO THE
            HONOURABLE MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT


Respected Sir/Madam,

The Postal & RMS Employees submit the following:

ATTACK ON RMS

  The Department of Posts has launched an attack on Railway Mail Service by introducing several measures affecting the staff and services:

Some of them are:

1. Abolishing of Night sets
2. Reducing the number of RMS offices
3. Merging CRC's
4. Merging Divisions and closing Record Offices
5. Abolition of RMS Sections within the Circles
6. Outsourcing of Postal mail conveyance by destroying MMS 

There were no consultations with the unions. Unilateral decisions are taken.

Mails are delayed badly due to wrong policies and bad mail arrangements. Representations from unions to the Postal Board have not yielded results.

We therefore seek your intervention and good offices.

A copy of the communication addressed to the Secretary Department of Posts is enclosed.

We request you to be good enough to address to the Honorable Minister of Communications & IT enclosing a copy of our communication to the Honorable Minister of Communications & IT and the Minister of State for Communications & IT for their immediate intervention.

Yours sincerely,

GOVT ORDERS ON GDS PAY COMMITTEE.

DEAR FRIENDS
      Please do not panic. Keep the moral high. I was knowing that postal directorate is not taking in to consideration the modified recommendations made by shri Gopinath committee. Secondly I have already written to the minister communication and also to the secretary department of post regarding this aspect but unfortunately they ware helpless to control the concerned officers while preparations of cabinet note on GDS pay committee report.

How ever I have to point out here that the following issues are to be settled and we have to March ahed.

1 In case of TRCA on historical pro-rata comparison maintained by all earlier GDS committee should be implemented.

2 EX-GRATIA gratuity the maximum of 60,000 shall be suitably revised to a maximum of 16 & 1/2 months TRCA plus D.A. tp GDS employees on the date of their retirement.

3 The date of effect of revised allowances should be with effect from 1-09-2008 as per C. G. EMPLYOEES
 
4 Tighetening of time factor should be like at least 5000/- = 1 point
 
5 bonus sealing should be Rs. 3500/- as per other postal employees and discrimination should be avoided
 
6 Pension or social security scheme left over in GDS committee order should be implemented. And other left over issues
 
Postal JCA of FNPO -NFPE-AIPEDEU -NUGDS WIL MEET ON 28TH October to decide further final action.

In my view we have to discuss on all aspects on this GDS pay orders issued on 9.10.2009 and for suitable modification the staff oriented action plan be finalized
 
Being the president FNPO one time I was of the openion to sought court stay on this orders of GDS pay committee but as GDS staff are eagerly waiting for orders and 40% payment of arrears amount I have decided not to bring a stay on this orders but I will not spare the postal directorate to play with lives of three lakhas GDS staff and will fight to achieve the goal of pension, bonus and other issues.
