Dear Comrades! A delegation of NFPE consisting of its Secretary General and the General Secretaries of P3, P4, R3, Admn and Postal Accounts met Shri.I.M.G.Khan, the Secretary Department of Posts informally  on 1.4.2008. The Delegation thanked the Secretary [P] for granting the recognition to the Federation. The issues  raised and the response of the DG Posts are as follows:


1.      Reconstitution of Postal Departmental Council JCM in the wake of recognition to Federations and holding of Periodical Meeting with the Federation and All India Unions:


Secretary [P] agreed to the above.


2.      Anomaly in pay for TBOP and injustice to System Administrators etc:


We pointed out that consequent on placing the TBOP / LSG Supervisors in the same PB-1 pay band along with Sorters, LDCs, Postmen, PA/SA and some of these cadres who are to be supervised by the LSG also reaching the same Grade Pay of the Supervisor, the LSG /TBOP are much downgraded. The issue of Pay Commission neglecting the services of System Administrators also was pointed out. The DG mentioned that a Committee has been constituted in the Directorate to look into the issues arising out of Pay Commission's Report and suggested that the Staff Side can communicate such issues to the Committee after mutual consultations amongst the staff side.


3.      Promotions to JAO qualified Hands.


We tried to find out whether any progress had been achieved in the matter with the Department of Telecommunications. It was told that the Honourable Minister of State for Communications & IT with both the Secretaries is beckoning a meeting and the issue might be sorted out there. However he assured that if necessary pending a final decision on the matter of merger, the qualified JAOs might be given promotion adhoc / temporary basis and therefore on this issue we may prefer a discussion  with the Member [P].


4.      Modification of Member [P] orders to post FTP officials as SPMs in Delivery offices.


Secretary [P] told us that this has been done. Later the modified order has been made available to us. The order is modified to the effect that those officials who have genuine problems in getting disturbed from their present posts could be permitted to stay on etc. [Now affected officials should be guided to submit representations citing their difficulties and the latest DG instructions and get the transfer orders cancelled]


5.      Non-grant of notional promotions to LSG in Orissa circle.


The attempt to convene the DPC to fill up the posts of HSG-II without sorting out the notional promotions in Orissa Circle was raised by us. Secretary [P] assured that the Director would  shortly pay a visit to Orissa to sort out the issue.

6.      Attempt to form Mumbai City Region.


Secretary [P] categorically stated that no such proposal had been cleared by the Honourable Minister and the Directorate and therefore no new region could be formed as such.


7.      Atrocities of SSP Meerut Division.


Secretary [P] assured that necessary action would be taken.


8.      Changing the nomenclature of RMS in Kerala.


We pointed out the change of nomenclature of RMS in Kerala Circle while the issue is being discussed at the all India level between the official and staff sides. The Secretary [P] assured us that he would sort it as he is going to Kerala soon.


9.      Exemption of Screening Committee.


Secretary [P] informed us that a meeting of Secretaries was held and a decision with regard to those departments where already 10% establishment had been downsized, stopping further application of Screening Committee is likely to be accepted soon.


10.  Curtailment of Delivery by Circle Administration.


The curtailment of delivery resorted in places like Lucknow GPO, Patna GPO etc was brought to his notice and Secretary [P] immediately issued strong instructions for restoration at least 2 deliveries.






On 4.4.2008, NFPE and GDS Union will jointly tender oral evidence before the Nataraja Murti GDS Committee on the issues of three lakhs of Gramin Dak Sevaks. The Delegation would consist of the Secretary General NFPE, General Secretaries P3, P4, R4 and GDS. In the background of 6th Central Pay Commission already submitted its recommendations, our delegation would place the issues of GDS before the Committee in a comprehensive manner.
