All GDS are requested to  take a firm decision for the unity and move to march ahead with a united trade union movement. Ours is ..... a union which is ready to fight jointly with NFPE ........ a union which believes in the unity of regular employees and GDS ......... a union which believes that policies of the Govt. is the main enemy of GDS ........ a union which believes that NFPE alone can lead the battle for emancipation of GDS.

If such determination took place in the intellect minds of GDS....

NFPE Takes the lead
indefinite  strike  -- if gds are not included in viith cpc -- historic decision of 9th federal council
               Once again NFPE has taken the lead for the emancipation of three lakhs Gramin Dak Sevaks.  Everybody knows that upto 1999 one after another GDS employees achieved certain benefits including the GDS package after the Justice Talwar Committee recommendations, though distorted to a great extent by the Govt, only through the united struggle conducted under the leadership of NFPE and JCA.  Separate GDS union was formed in the year 1999 by NFPE, to further strengthen the united struggle and to advance further, by compelling the unwilling Govt. to implement the recommendations of the Justice Talwar Committee including grant of Civil Servant status.  Unfortunately the leadership of the GDS Union hijacked the new union from NFPE and joined the anti-NFPE lobby.  They concentrated in attacking NFPE, forgetting the fact that it is not NFPE but the policies of the Govt. which is the main enemy.  An atmosphere of hatred between regular employees and GDS was created.  NFPE was not allowed to take up or discuss GDS issues as the leadership of GDS union objected it and they want to be the sole champion of GDS.  The result was bitter.  Govt. took the opportunity to snatch away all the hard-earned benefits of the GDS one by one. Every hope of the GDS for a better tomorrow was shattered.  Thus the period from 1999 to 2012 was marked in the history as dark days for the GDS.
               As the saying goes - “at the end of every tunnel, there will be light”.  The formation of the new GDS Union, viz. AIPEU-GDS (NFPE) in the year 2012, rekindled their hope.  It heralded a new era in the history of the Postal and GDS movement.  A union which is ready to fight jointly with NFPE, a union which believes in the unity of regular employees and GDS, a union which believes that policies of the Govt. is the main enemy of GDS, a union which believes that NFPE alone can lead the battle for emancipation of GDS, was borne.  The dark days are over and after a horrifying experience of about 13 years, a ray of hope appeared, and within a short span, it spread like anything and the darkness disappeared.
               For the first time after a very long gap, about twenty representatives of AIPEU-GDS (NFPE) attended in the 9th Federal Council of NFPE held at Hyderabad and participated in the deliberations.  All the delegates gave a patient hearing and extended full support to the cause of GDS.  Finally, the Federal Council adopted a historic resolution in which it was clearly declared that the entire Postal and RMS employees including GDS shall go on an indefinite strike, jointly with other Federations if possible, if the demand for inclusion of the GDS under the purview of the Seventh Central Pay Commission is not accepted by the Govt.   Thus once again NFPE has taken the lead to fight for the emancipation of GDS.
               To translate this historic decision into action everyone of us should start serious planning and campaigning not only among the employees but also among the public.  We should be ready to jump into action, if situation warrants.  The message of the Hyderabad Federal Council should reach each and every GDS.  Our task is not easy, but it is not impossible.  Battle lines are already drawn.  “Kurukshetra” is calling us once gain.  Justice shall win once gain.

Uttarakhand tragedy
confederation appeals to all central govt. employees to donate one day wages to
prime minister’s relief fund
               Excessive and unexpected rainfall resulting in furious floods has battered beyond measure, the Himalayan hill state of Uttarakhand.  Whole villages, stretches of roads and communication links have been affected.  More than 1000 persons met with tragic death.  Thousands, including those from other parts of the country who were undertaking pilgrimages to religiously significant temples in the region, remain stranded.  Hundreds of houses and buildings along the banks of Alakananda and the Bhagirathi has been swept away in Rudraprayag district alone.  Thousands have become homeless.
               As the magnitude of the tragedy caused in Uttarakhand continues to unfold, Prime Minister Sri. Manmohan Singh has issued an appeal for generous donations to support the victims who have suffered extensive devastation.  Prime Minister appealed that - “At this moment, the affected people need our help to tide over the calamity that has fallen upon them, to survive and to rebuild their lives.  I request all citizens of India to stand with our distressed fellow countrymen, and actively participate in the national effort to support them at this difficult time”.
               It is needless to say that the Central Govt. Employees have an urgent and important role to play in helping the flood victims and we shall have to rise upto the occasion, as in the past when such national calamities occurred.  The National Secretariat of the Confederation of Central Govt. Employees & Workers calls upon the entireity of Central Govt. Employees to donate one day’s salary to the Prime Minister Relief Fund and extend our full support to the flood victims to rebuild their lives.
          All the Affiliates of the Confederation, State Committees (C-O-Cs) and CHQ Office bearers are requested to make maximum efforts to collect and remit the donations to Prime Minister’s Relief Fund.

Sub: - Sanction of Rs.200/- per month under SDBS for the GDS officiating in postman & MTS short term vacancies – Reg.

Respected Madam,

It is brought to our notice that in many Divisions, the GDS are performing the duties in the vacant Postman & MTS posts in short term vacancies. The TRCA is being sanctioned for the post of GDS and drawn in favour of the substitutes for the said period.

The instructions laid down under Service Discharge Benefit Scheme, a sum of Rs.200/ per month is sanctioned every month to the GDS who has drawn monthly TRCA for that month. The particular GDS performing the duties in the vacant posts of Postman & MTS in the divisions may not be enrolled in the list for sanction of Rs.200/- as the TRCA drawn for that month is in the name of the substitute, there by losing their provision for that particular period/month.

It is pertinent to mention that the GDS working in vacant places of Postman & MTS are getting the benefit of notional increment though the TRCA is drawn in favour of substitute for that officiating period. On the same analogy, the sanction of Rs.200/- under SDB Scheme may be made to the GDS who is on leave for the purpose of officiating in the vacant places of Postman & MTS in the divisions.

It is requested to consider and cause necessary instructions on the subject.

Sub: Computing unregistered articles handled in the BOs – Reg.

Respected Madam,

While fixation of TRCA to GDS BPMs, the computation of unregistered articles handled per day is being taken after obtaining two days test figures in the middle of the week for every 25 unregistered articles for 1 point.

It is learnt that many BOs are receiving a considerable number of unregistered articles everyday and mere calculation of two days test figures for computing 1 point for a month for 25 articles on an average is not justified and does not reflect the right position. The average figure of registered articles & accountable articles are taking into account for every  22 articles for 1 point of workload handled during the month.

There is every justification for computing total number of unregistered handled during the month and an average will be taken into account for computing 25 articles for  1 point instead of 25 articles for a month with I point of work load.

Eg. Total number of regd. & accountable articles handled in month = 220.
On an average for every 22 articles for I point = 10 points.

Total number of unregistered articles handled in a month = 500
On an average for every 25 articles per day for 1 point = 20 points

Instead of 20 points, it is being computed on the basis of two days test figures for 25 articles for one (1) point for that month.

It is therefore requested to kindly  issue necessary instructions to the authorities concerned to reiterate the instructions issued on the subject by taking into consideration of the total unregistered articles handled during the month instead of two days test figure which will reflect the real business of the BOs.

Sub:-   Release of amount accrued in SDB Scheme to the nominees of deceased GDS officials.

Respected Madam,

It is reported from many quarters that the retirement benefits viz., Severance Amount / Amount accrued in SDBS has not drawn to the nominees of the deceased GDS officials in the divisions.

It is a well known fact that the PRAN cards to the applicant GDS opted under SDBS have not  been received. Many GDS are unaware of their enrollment under the SDB Scheme till date. Repeated requests  to the Divisional authorities are in vain.

Claim cases are pending in the Divisions for the determination of enrollment under SDBS and other reasons best known to the authorities.

It is therefore requested to issue suitable and necessary instructions to all the concerning authorities to dispose all the pending cases and effect payment of the amount accrued in SDBS or eligible Severance Amount to the nominees of the deceased GDS officials at  the earliest.

Further, it is requested to issue necessary instructions to intimate the position of enrollment of each GDS under SDBS there by further enrollment of eligible GDS in every division would be optimized.

Sub:- Computation of revenue generation in BOs – Reg.

Respected Madam,

While computing revenue generation from the BOs as cost/establishment norms fixed on certain items of work viz., stamp sales, MO commission, SB/RD/TD transactions only.

7 / 20 portion of sale of stamps
28% portion of MO issue commission
34% portion of MO paid commission
Rs.1.70 ps for SB/RD deposit
Rs.2.70ps for SB with drawls etc are in practice.

In the recent past, there is a considerable number of accounts are being opened in BOs for POSB, PORD, RPLI schemes under the business activities. It is learnt that the department is in receipt of revenue on the live accounts of POSB, PORD, POTD, MIS for 3 years from the Govt. No honorarium / incentive has been paid to such work to GDS.

An apportioned amount of that Receipt may also be taken in to account by considering the number of live accounts standing in the BOs. There by decrease the loss incurred by BOs can be justified and will be resulted in the upward revision of TRCA to the BPMs and the post establishment of that particular BO will be sustained.

It is requested to take necessary action for taking such new accounts for subsequent deposits for comparable workload as well as revenue of the BO.
