7th CPC - Analysys on GDS issues

Gramin Dak Sewaks

11.8.48 A demand has been made before the Commission for treating Gramin Dak Sewaks (GDS) as civil servants at par with other regular employees for all purposes.

Analysis and Recommendations

11.8.49   The Commission has carefully considered the demand and noted the following: 

a.   GDS are Extra-Departmental Agents recruited by Department of Posts to serve in rural areas. 

b.   As per the RRs, the minimum educational qualification for recruitment to this post is Class X. 

c.   GDS are required to be on duty only for 4-5 hours a day under the terms and conditions of their service. 

d.   The GDS are remunerated with Time Related Continuity Allowance (TRCA) on the pattern of pay scales for regular government employees, plus DA on pro-rata basis. 

e.   A GDS must have other means of income independent of his remuneration as a GDS, to sustain himself and his family. 

11.8.50   Government of India has so far held that the GDS is outside the Civil Service of the Union and shall not claim to be at par with the Central Government employees. The Supreme Court judgement also states that GDS are only holders of civil posts but not civilian employees.

The Commission endorses this view and therefore has no recommendation with regard to GDS.
