CHANGING THE NAME OF POSTMAN AS POSTMASTER

†220. SHRI MOTILAL VORA:

Will the Minister of COMMUNICATIONS be pleased to state:

(a)       whether Government has changed the designation of Postman distributing letters in villages to Postmaster;

(b)       whether this change in designation has been done only in the State of Rajasthan or it has been done at national level;

(c)        whether it is a fact that the pay scale of Postmaster ranges from ` 4500 to  ` 13,000;

(d)       whether this pay scale remains even lower than that a Central fourth class employee; and

(e)        if so, the steps being taken by Government to provide proper pay scale to Postmaster distributing mails from one village to another?

ANSWER

THE MINISTER OF STATE (IC) OF THE MINISTRY OF COMMUNICATIONS &
 MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS
(SHRI MANOJ SINHA)

                                                         
(a)       No, Sir.  Gramin Dak Sevak Branch Postmaster (GDS BPM) or Gramin Dak Sevak Mail Deliverer distribute letters in villages.

(b)       Does not arise in view of (a) above.

(c)        No, Sir.

(d)       Yes Sir. However, there is no comparison in the pay scales of these two cadres since Central fourth class (now termed as Multi Tasking Staff – MTS) are regular employees whereas Gramin Dak Sevaks are part-time sevaks.

(e)       The allowances of Gramin Dak Sewaks are revised periodically as in the case of Central Pay Commission.
