Sub:-   Forthcoming agitational programmes of NFPE / Confederation.

Ref.-    NFPE Circular No. PF – 01(a)/2017, dated 11.09.2017

Respected Comrade,
While forwarding the NFPE Circular referred to above to the Divisional Secretaries / Circle Union Office bearers, we are receiving several reactions on the Charter of Demands from grass root level leadership and members as well.

Though there are 12 Points Charter of Demands for regular issues affecting the common citizens of India  and 21 points Charter of Demands for all Central Govt. employees in general, the grass root level leadership are suggesting some specific issues of the postal employees in particular to be included in the Charter of Demands as follows.

i.              Five working days in a week for postal operative staff.

ii.             Change of designation on each promotion (LSG/Grade-I, HSG-II/Grade-II and HSG-I/Grade-III) (if considered, Demand No. 11 of the Confederation may be modified accordingly)

iii.            No meeting/mela/workshop/seminar on Sundays and Govt. Holidays. (All the orders issued earlier in this regard instructs not to hold such meeting/mela/workshop/seminar frequently for which the administration has got the scope for conducting on several Sundays/Holidays  with a reply that they are not conducting frequently).

iv.           Ensure payment of wages to the casual workers as per recommendations of the 6th and 7th CPC. (While the payment as per 6th CPC has been paid partially, the same as per 7th CPC has not at all been paid yet in many Circles. As such, Demand No. 5 of the Confederation may be modified accordingly, if considered)

Hope, our CHQ will reexamine inclusion of the above demands in the charter.

With regards.
Comradely yours,

Transfer of non-gazetted LSG, HSG-II and HSG-I officials on the plea of station tenure – Case of Odisha Circle

Sub:- Transfer of non-gazetted  LSG, HSG-II and HSG-I officials on the plea of station tenure – Case of Odisha Circle

Ref.-   i.          CHQ letter No. P / 2 – 16 / Odisha Circle, dated 10.02.2017
ii.         Chief PMG, Odisha Circle letter No. ST / 46 – 1 / Rlg / 2015 - Corr, dated 02.08.2017

Respected Comrade,
Inviting a kind reference to the letter of the Chief PMG, Odisha Circle referred to above and addressed to CHQ,  this is to state that the reply given on the basis of rotational transfer guidelines issued vide Directorate’s letter No. 141-141/2013-SPB.II, dated 31.01.2014 is not at all convincing since the station tenure for non-gazetted staff has been abolished vide DG P & T letter No.69/49/72-SPB, dated 29.08.1973 and No. 69/49/71-SPB I, dated 2 12.1971 where in it has been categorically instructed to transfer such officials to some other post in the same station on completion of tenure. The tenure for non-gazetted Postmasters including HSG is 4 years (DG P & T Letter No. 69/15/79-SPB-I, dated 14.02.1980).

During the last rotational transfer, Odisha Circle has transferred as many as five such Postmasters including this Circle Secretary who has been accommodated in the headquarters for one year only on immunity ground. This time the number may increase.

Therefore, it is once again requested to appraise the Directorate to re-circulate the abolition order issued vide DG P & T letter No.69/49/72-SPB, dated 29.08.1973 and No. 69/49/71-SPB I, dated 2 12.1971 to save the interest of the non-gazetted Postmasters.

With regards.
Comradely yours,

Sub:-  Building issues of Mayurbhanj Division

Respected Sir,
                        As brought to the notice of this Circle Union, building issues like construction of motor cycle shed in postal colony Baripada and Rairangpur, repairing and maintenance of staff quarters at Baripada and Rairangpur are pending at C O.

                        The issues have already been taken up by the Divisional Union with the SPOs, Mayurbhanj Division.

                        With regard to the issue of construction of motor cycle shed in postal colony Baripada and Rairangpur, it has been replied by the Divisional Head that the Asst. Director (Bldg)  has already addressed the Executive Engineer (Civil), Postal Civil Sub Division, Bhubaneswar on 04.01.2016 and the EE (Civil) has directed the AE (Civil) vide his letter No. 50 (29) / CDC / 80 / Baripada & Rairangpur / 2014, dated 04.02.2016 to visit the spot  and submit estimate immediately. But though the Divisional Head has already reminded the Circle Office since 11.05.2016, no action has yet been taken on the issue.

                        For repairing of Type-III, Qtrs. No. 4 and No.5 in the campus of Rairangpur HO though C O has been requested on 28.10.2015, 02.02.2016 and 13.05.2016, no action is seen to be taken in this regard.

                        Similarly the annual maintenance of staff quarters in Baripada and Rairangpur are pending in C O since 28.10.2015.

                        The delayed action / no action in repairing and maintenance of Staff Quarters not only put the occupants in to trouble but seriously damage the Govt. property also.

                        Therefore this Circle Union would like to request for expediting all the pending building issues of Mayurbhanj Division  for saving the Govt. property from further damage.

       With regards.
Yours faithfully,

Cabinet approves release of additional 1% Dearness Allowance to Central Government employees and Dearness Relief to pensioners w.e.f. 01.07.2017 
The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has given its approval for release of additional 1% Dearness Allowance (DA) to Central Government employees and Dearness Relief (DR) to pensioners. It will be applicable from 01.07.2017.

The release of the additional instalment of DA represents an increase of 1% over the existing rate of 4% of the Basic Pay/Pension, to compensate for price rise. This increase is in accordance with the accepted formula, which is based on the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission.


The combined impact on the exchequer on account of both DA and DR would be Rs.3068.26 crore per annum and Rs.2045.50 crore in the financial year 2017-18 (for a period of 8 months from July, 2017 to February, 2018). This will benefit about 49.26 lakh Central Government employees and 61.17 lakh pensioners.
