Shri Kapil Sibal Jee,
Hon’ble Minister for Communications & IT
Government of India
Electronic Niketan, 6 CGO Complex,
Lodhi Road, New Delhi-110001

Respected Sir,

With deep respect and humility, we venture to seek a bit of your precious time to submit herewith a brief memorandum on the pressing and burning problems of Gramin Dak Sevak employees of the Department of Posts.
We earnestly believe that the issues will receive your sympathetic consideration for long impending solution. Our belief is based on the concrete foundation that the issues need a judicious and political touch at the hands of one of the most renounced jurists of the land.
With profound regards,
Yours faithfully,
DA: one Memorandum

Background: The Gramin Dak Sevaks are the employees of the Department of Posts who are responsible for maintaining and providing communications services to rural India. We are aware that the Government has been laying special stress on rural uplift. On this score, Communication is going to be of vital importance. It is heartening to note that the Department of Posts has recognized this well in time and there is a proposal for updating rural post offices ¼Branch Post Offices½ by connecting them with internet. But the employees in these Post Offices i.e., Gramin Dak Sevaks have long been victims of discrimination. The three lac Gramin Dak Sevaks believe that a great jurist at the helm of affairs will do justice on the principle of right to equality provided in the Constitution of India.
2. Justice Talwar Committee Recommendations: While other Committees on service conditions and related matters have been constituted under Chairmanship of bureaucrats, it was in 1995 that a Committee under Justice Chranjit Talwar, retired Judge of Delhi High Court was constituted. Based on the three judge judgment of the Supreme Court of India in Rajamma’s case (SC, 1977½ Justice Talwar Committee recommended equality in status as civil servants and pay scales on the  basis of work hours, while the commendations of this judicial committee were mainly neglected, a few were hugely abridged before implementation.
          A Committee under  Sri Natarajamurthy, a retired bureaucrat has tried and infact, over ruled the findings of justice Talwar. It has, therefore, become necessary to revisit the recommendations of Justice Talwar Committee in the light of several judgments of the Supreme Court for necessary action.
          Your good self, may kindly consider this aspect and pass judicious orders.
3. Discrimination in bonus ceiling: The ceiling on pay and allowances for grant of bonus to employees has been fixed at Rs.3500/- irrespective of pay. This applies to Gramin Dak Sevaks as well. But the Department of Posts has unreasonably and arbitrarily reduced this ceiling to Rs.2500/-.
          You may graciously and judicially view this discrimination and remove the injustice.
4. Tightening of norms for assessment of work hours: We need hardly emphasize that the condition of business in rural post offices is different from this prevailing in urban areas. The department of posts has abruptly and arbitrarily raised the quantum of cash handling from Rs.1000/- to Rs.20,000/- for one point and stamp sales amount to Rs.900/- from Rs.45/- Besides work done in payment of MNREGS is ignored. This works to be detriment of the BPMs and has to be revised.
          Your honour may kindly order modification of tightened norms to be practicable and in consultation with this Union.
5. Curtailment in promotional avenues: In the recently made Recruitment Rules for Postman, the already scanty promotional avenues of the Gramin Dak Sevaks have been further curtailed by 25%. We have submitted reasoned views on this issue to the Secretary, Department of Posts (a copy enclosed as Annexure-I). The said Recruitment Rules need to be modified in the light of our suggestions.
Your honour may kindly pass necessary orders.
6. Compassionate appointments: In the recently circulated yard sticks for recruitment on compassionate grounds on death in harness while the same are faulty and not based on facts, this will abridge this small benefit of Gramin Dak Sevaks and abnormally delay such recruitment defeating the very purpose. We have submitted detailed note on the issue to the Secretary, Department of Posts ¼a copy enclosed as Annexure-II).
Your honour may kindly cause suitable amendment as proposed by us.
7. Grant of Trade Union facilities: The ED Agent ¼Recognition & Association½ Rules, 1995 are verbatim reproduction of the CCS ¼Recognition of Service Associations½ Rules, 1993 and other related orders are the same. But our Union has not been granted any trade union facility. Not even the facility of Foreign Service at our own cost and no special casual leave to attend organizational meetings or meetings with administration. This is highly arbitrary and unjustified.
Your honour may graciously consider the issue and order that minimum trade union facilities are granted to ensure proper functioning of the Union.

A day after a heated discussion took place in Parliament on the WikiLeaks disclosures published in The Hindu, it was business as usual in the Lok Sabha on Thursday. Speaker Meira Kumar went through the process of 'Papers to be laid on the Table' and then got down to the legislative business, including the introduction of the Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority Bill, 2011.
As soon as she called out Minister of State for Finance Namo Narain Meena, standing for Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee, to introduce the Bill, CPI (M) leader Basudeb Acharia stood up, opposing the introduction of the Bill and demanding a division, taking the Treasury Benches by surprise.Only a handful of Ministers were present, including Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal, along with his deputy V. Narayanasamy. Caught unawares, the treasury benches too wore a rather thin look, enough for the government to sense trouble. Both the Ministers went up to National Democratic Alliance working chairman L.K. Advani and Leader of the Opposition Sushma Swaraj, and talked to them. It became clear that the main Opposition BJP would come to the government's rescue.
Mr. Bansal cited Rule 72 on the government's legislative competence to introduce the Bill and sought tknow the grounds on which Mr. Acharia was opposing it, but the CPI (M) leader refused to budge from his demand for division.The Speaker ordered division when Mr. Acharia further pressed for it. "We are opposing the introduction of the bill. I am asking for division instead of a voice vote," Mr. Acharia said.
Of the 159 members present in the 543-member House, 115 voted for introduction of the bill and 43 opposed it, while one abstained. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Leader of the House Pranab Mukherjee, UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, several Ministers and Congress members were not present.
Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Raghuvansh Prasad was heard saying that when the Speaker had already ordered division, it could not be rolled back.
The bill provides for the establishment of an authority to promote old-age income security by creating, developing and regulating pension funds and to protect the interests of subscribers to pension fund schemes.

The Union Cabinet committee today decided to increase the Dearness Allowance by 6% to Central Government employees.

Hike in the Dearness Allowance (DA) will be from 45% to 51% w.e.f.January 2011.

Release of first additional instalment of dearness allowance for this year to Central Government employees and Dearness Relief to Pensioners due from Jan-2011 to compensate for essential commodities price hike.

The revised rates of Dearness Allowance from 1.1.2011 to 28.2.2011 may be paid in cash as arrears and for the month of March may be disbursed with the salary.

The enhancement of Dearness Allowance is in accordance with the accepted formula, which is based on the recommendations of the 6th Central Pay Commission.

Government Order from Finance Department will be published very soon.

Monday, March 21, 2011

Incentive scheme for Central staff to be announced shortly:

The incentives will be initially paid out of cost savings made by the department in that fiscal year
The United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government has finally decided to implement the Performance Related Incentive Scheme (PRIS) recommended by the Sixth Pay Commission for all Central government employees. An announcement is expected in the next couple of days, government sources told The Hindu. Those government employees who make the cut will start earning their incentives in 2012.
A Committee of Secretaries (COS) chaired by Cabinet Secretary K. M. Chandrasekhar approved the broad contours of the PRIS on March 8, and asked the Department of Expenditure and Performance Management Division, Cabinet Secretariat, to work out guidelines to implement the scheme. Members of the COS included Finance Secretary Sushma Nath, who was also member-secretary of the Commission.
Any department, to qualify for financial incentives, will have to get a performance rating of 70 per cent or more on its Results-Framework Document (RFD) and implement a bio-metric access control system in its offices. As suggested by the Commission, the incentives will be initially paid out of cost savings made by the department in that fiscal year and hence there will be no additional burden on the exchequer for implementing the PRIS, government sources said. Initially, for every rupee saved by the department, it will allow to distribute up to 15 paise depending on its performance.
The PRIS will cover all employees of the department. While incentives paid to the Secretaries will depend entirely on departmental performance reflected in the RFD, incentives paid to Joint Secretaries will depend on a weighted average of their division's performance and departmental performance. Incentives for junior employees will depend primarily on their individual performance.
However, all employees will need to go through a rigorous performance appraisal system consistent with the RFD evaluation methodology.
Indeed, incentives will start rolling out only after a department has prepared two rounds of robust RFDs, so as to truly capture departmental performance. Given that 2010-11 was the first year for implementation of 12-month RFDs, performance incentives will be paid from 2012-13 to employees who make the cut.
The decision to implement the PRIS comes in the wake of the Prime Minister's Performance Monitoring and Evaluation System (PMES) for government departments that was approved in September 2009.
Interestingly, of the departments that have gone through the exercise, there have been some notable exceptions including the Ministries of Home, Finance, Defence, External Affairs, and the Prime Minister's Office (PMO).
This has led to objections from officials of other Ministries: the feeling is that these key ministries and departments influence the work of other departments, and unless they, too, are brought under the scanner, the RFD will be redundant and unproductive.
The view from the Cabinet Secretariat is that the Prime Minister did not keep any department out of the ambit of the evaluation process, but it was felt that it would be better to implement it in phases for practical, operational reasons.
The original idea was to cover all 84 ministries and departments - it started with 59 departments in the last quarter of 2009-10, and currently covers 62 departments.

Government may declare Dearness Allowance of 6% to Central Government Employees...

Tomorrow Government may announce the additional Dearness Allowance of 6% to Central Government Employees...

The Central Government is likely to declare of Additional Dearness Allowance to Central Government Employees and Pensioners after the Union Cabinet meeting scheduled tomorrow, sources said. More than 50 lakh Central Government Serving Employees and 38 lakh Central Pensioners are expecting this decision to compensate the price hike. Presently, the DA is paid at 45% of the basic pay, hence the Central Staff and Pensioners will be paid total of 51% DA or DR from 1.1.2011.

There is no recommondations in 6th CPC that Dearness Allowance crosses 50% would merge with baisc pay. But some allowances and advances will be increased by 25% on crossing of Dearness Allowance by 50%.
