GRAMIN DAK SEVAKS CHEATED BY RECOGNISED GDS UNION

Who is trying to create confusion among GDS Fraternity by spreading false news and false propaganda?

Where is the “Respectful Agreement” of Recognised GDS Union of Mahadevaiah?

Mahadevaiah’s recognised GDS Union claimed that he has signed a “Respectful Agreement with Department by agreeing for separate committee for GDS. Thus with the permission and approval of Mahadevaiah’s Recognised GDS Union, Government excluded GDS from 7th CPC.

NFPE, FNPO and JCM Staff side Demanded inclusion of GDS under 7th CPC. Mahadevaiah wrote to the Department not to allow NFPE & FNPO to take up GDS case. 

Thus Mahadevaiah’s Recognised GDS Union alone is responsible for Government’s refusal to include GDS under 7th CPC and Grant of Civil Servant Status.

Mahadevaiah is now telling that he will organize agitiational programmes for inclusion of GDS under 7th CPC. 

After signing “Respectful Agreement” agreeing for separate committee what is the need for playing another Drama for inclusion in 7th CPC . 

Who is cheating the GDS? Who is creating confusion among GDS? 

Who is spreading False News? 

Recognised GDS Union has lost its credibility.

AIPEU-GDS (NFPE) IS THE ONLY GDS UNION FIGHTING FOR THE CAUSE OF GDS JOINTLY WITH NFPE

DA MERGER & INTERIM RELIEF- CONFEDERATION WRITES TO SECRETARY JCM STAFF SIDE, NATIONAL COUNCIL

CONFEDERATION OF CENTRAL GOVT. EMPLOYEES & WORKERS

 Central Headquarters 

1st floor, North Avenue Post Office Building, New Delhi-110 001.

     Dated :  23.07.2014
Com. Shiv Gopal Misra,
Secretary,
Staff Side, National Council, JCM
13 C Feroze Shah Road,
New Delhi. 110 001.

Dear Comrade,

  Sub: Memorandum of Interim Relief and merger of Dearness allowance.

            The National Secretariat of the Confederation of Central Government employees and workers places on record its appreciation over the efforts of the Staff Side,  JCM,  National Council in preparing and submitting the memorandum to the 7th Central Pay Commission, which has received the widest acceptance and admiration of the Central Government employees. Since the last date for submitting the Department-specific memorandum has been got extended by your efforts uptill 31st July, 2014, the first phase of our endeavour and interaction with the 7th CPC will come to a conclusion in a few days’ time.

       I have been directed by the National Secretariat of the Confederation which met on 17thJuly, 2014 to solicit your kind reference to the memorandum submitted by the Staff Side on behalf of all Federations, Unions, Associations on Interim Relief and merger of Dearness allowance.  We are of the view that the Staff Side, in pursuance of the said memorandum, must seek an audience with the Pay Commission immediately to know the course of action the Commission would like to take in the matter.  We must also seek an appointment with the honourable Finance Minister thereafter so as to ensure that a decision on our demands is taken by the Government without any further delay.  We hope we need not emphasise the fact that the Central Government employees do expect financial benefit on this score as the erosion in the real value of wages as on date is phenomenal. 

  We shall be grateful if you will indicate to us your line of approach in the matter.

  Thanking you and with greetings,
Yours fraternally,


M. Krishnan
Secretary General.

Pranab Bhattacharjee General Secretary Admin union attended. The CGM (PLI) inaugurated the work shop. The General Manager (PLI) and Addl.GM (PLI) have conducted the work shop and clarified the doubts raised by the participants.

The following points have been emphasized and highlighted by the NFPE.

1.      While welcoming the CPC under Core Insurance Solution, the NFPE strongly demands that all Circle offices/ Regional offices shall be allowed to function as CPCs.
2.      As all the HPOs are proposed to function as CPCs, provision of additional staff has been insisted to handle the additional work related to CPCs such as Acceptance of Proposals, Issue of Policy documents & Premium Receipt books, Loan, Surrender, Maturity, Death Claim and other Customer Services like Change of address, Nomination etc.
3.      Supply of New Computers, Scanners and Printers with good configuration & Furniture has been demanded and it was replied that all the above items are to be supplied on priority basis. The proposed Scanners will have the facility of OCR technology (Optical Character Recognizer) to reduce the typing work to a greater extent.
4.      After introduction of CPCs, the visiting customers will be more to avail many “After Sales Services”, it is imperative to allot funds and enhance financial powers to Head Postmasters to cater the need of hospitality par with the trend prevailing with market competitors. The idea insisted by NFPE is positively cognized.
5.      The delay in payment of incentive to GDS and Departmental staff was pointed out and it was assured for necessary action. It was told to the union that Ministry of Finance has been addressed for the allotment of additional fund to clear all the pending bills at various levels.
6.      The issue of slow speed and low bandwidth in respect of CBS is already prevailing and if the core Insurance Solution is hastily implemented with the existing infrastructure, the staff will be put in to greater trouble and strain was the argument put forth by NFPE. It is replied that the implementation of CIS is being delayed to sort out the above problem and it would be set right soon. Smooth transition to Mc Camish would be the aim as replied.

The Department sought better cooperation in the implementation of Core Insurance Solution and creation of Central Processing Centre. We assured positively.
