Seventh Pay Commission
Get ready for indefinite strike

            The demand for setting up of the Seventh Central Pay Commission (CPC), five year wage revision, merger of 50% DA with Pay was first raised by the Confederation of Central Govt. Employees and workers, of which National Federation of Postal Employees is a major affiliate. At that time, in 2010, no other Central Govt. Employees organisation including Railways and Defence raised this demand. Phased programme of action and campaign was organised throughout the country. The justification for the next CPC was also well explained to the rank and file membership with well founded facts and figures. The demand catched the  imagination  of the workers, cutting across union affiliation by and large they are convinced that the injustices done by the Sixth CPC can be undone only by setting up another pay commission. The erosion in wages due to the unprecedented price rise is very much felt by each and every employee. Further the demand of five year wage revision and the discrimination in wage revision between public sector employees and Central Govt employees is not at all acceptable to the employees.
            It is in this background, the confederation has decided to step up the campaign and to organise a massive Parliament March on 26th July 2012 before the parliament, to exhibit before the highest forum of democracy that the entire employees are restive and any delay in setting up of the 7th CPC is not at all justified. The largest participation of Central Govt. employees of about more than 20000 in the Parliament March, has proved beyond doubt that the pay commission cannot be delayed any further. In that Parliament March a call for nation wide one day Strike on 12th December 2012 was given by Confederation.
            Hectic campaign was unleashed throughout the length and breadth of the country for making the 12th December strike a thundering success. The fact that confederation alone is organising a strike exclusively on CG demands after 1968, has given added importance to the struggle. Finally when the strike took place on 12th December, it became one of the biggest strike of CG employees with the participation from every section, surpassing the estimation of the leadership.
            It is at this stage only, the leadership of other Central Govt organisations are convinced that it is high time to demand the setting up of the 7th CPC. Only because of the sustained and determined effort made by the Confederation, such a situation has emerged. In the meantime, all the Central Trade Unions including INTUC, BMS, AITUC, CITU, HMS etc. has also submitted a memorandum to the Finance Minister setting of 7th  CPC in the 2013 budget itself. And now the biggest Railway Federation (AIRF) and Defence employees Federation (AIDEF) has come forward for a joint programme of action on the two major demands of the CG Employees, viz. Setting up of 7th CPC and scrapping the PFRDA Bill. A joint call is given by AIRF, AIDEF and confederation to organise nation wide protest demonstration, rallies etc on 29th April 2013 and also for sending telegrams to Prime Minister.
            Thus, now the Govt cannot any longer delay or deny the demand for setting up of 7th CPC. If the Govt still deny the demand, there is only one alternative left before the employees, i.e. indefinite strike. Let us start mobilising the workers now onwards, so that we can jump into action, if situation warrants.

ECI to strike deal with Department of Posts

The Election Commission of India (ECI) has decided to enter into an agreement with the Department of Posts for timely delivery of postal ballot to over 3.37 lakh personnel, including 37,000 in the defence, enabling them to exercise their franchise.
Chief Electoral Officer Karnataka Anil Kumar Jha said that there is a process of sending ballot papers to defence personnel 48 hours after the last date of withdrawal of candidates. He said that that the ballot papers would be given to over three lakh employees of state and Union governments, who would be deployed for poll works during the second and final round of electoral training. “The ballot papers supplied to defence personnel have to be certified by the respective unit officers under whom they are posted,” he said. The ballot papers which will have to be returned to their respective returning officers before the day of counting.
Two envelopes would be posted to the defence personnel. One will include a ballot paper for casting the vote while the other is for certifying it by the unit officers. Meanwhile, the ECI has applied brakes on the state Legislative Assembly secretariat for recruiting several posts, including that of Junior Assistant and D group.
The ECI had also reportedly stalled the disbursement of financial assistance from the CM’s Fund for medical relief.

Gezette Notification prescribing Disciplinary Authorities to Postmaster Cadre officials

Coming soon: ATMs, Internet banking at post offices

There is a good news for around 200 million post office saving bank (POSB) account holders. 

The Department of Posts (DOP) has launched a project to provide account holders with ATM facility. Under the project, all post offices throughout the country will be connected through an
 IT network.

Besides, account holders will also be able to avail Internet banking facilities.
“We will connect the network of 1.55 lakh post offices that includes 1.2 lakh in rural areas,” said Kavery Banerjee, member, technology, postal services board. “Our central data centre is ready and vendors are developing customised banking service solutions.”
POSB operates small savings schemes on behalf of the ministry of finance and has over 260 million account holders, out of which about 200 million are saving and recurring deposit account holders. Total outstanding balance under all accounts in the POSB stood at around Rs.3,96,664 crore as on March 2012.
At present, an account holder has to go to a post office during office hours to withdraw money. Moreover, there is no facility of electronic transfer of money to a third-party account.
“Once customers are provided with the ATM facility, they will be able to withdraw money from any ATM, including that provided by banks,” said Banerjee.
Customers will, however, have to wait for more than a year to avail the ATM facility. POSB will start implementing core banking solution in limited number of post offices by the end of this year. Next year, it will be implemented in large number of post offices once the system is perfect.
For rural post offices, the department will provide handheld devices that will enable one to perform all banking operations.

DBT funds in post offices soon

Racing against time to make the ambitious Direct Benefits Transfer (DBT) visibly effective before the 2014 general elections, the government will bring money transaction through post offices under the DBT ambit. This desperate move is aimed as a remedy to banks opening accounts of DBT beneficiaries at snail’s pace.
Ahead of the Prime Minister’s review meeting with key ministers, the government announced that post offices will also be included from October 1 while three pension schemes — for old age persons, widows and the disabled — would now be covered under DBT from July 1. The list would also include districts where the beneficiaries’ biometrics were collected under the National Population Register (NPR). They include Odisha, West Bengal, UP, Uttarakhand, Bihar and Chhattisgarh.
Several complaints had poured in after the scheme was launched from January 1 about the problems of the banks to open zero-balance accounts of the beneficiaries, especially in rural areas.
The government also targets to expand the DBT to cover 78 more districts in the next phase of the DBT rollout which will begin from July 1.
To plug the loopholes, PM’s focus will be on digitisation of databases and opening of more bank accounts. “There will be a thrust on digitisation of data of beneficiaries in all districts, irrespective of the rollout of DBT as this is a critical activity which need not wait and can be done in parallel,” said a press release.

“The department of financial services will be asked to ensure coverage of all beneficiaries with bank accounts. It will ensure that all Micro-ATMs that are procured will have specifications such that they are inter-operable and are Aadhaar enabled,” the release added.
