-- GRAMIN DAK SEVAKS --
REVISION OF WAGES AND SERVICE CONDITIONS SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN 7TH CPC

WE DON’T WANT SEPARATE COMMITTEE

JOIN INDEFINITE STRIKE FROM 2015 MAY 6TH

In the discussion held on 05.02.2015 with the Postal Joint Council of Action (NFPE, FNPO, AIPEU-GDS (NFPE) and NUGDS), Secretary, Department of Posts has assured that the demand for inclusion of GDS under 7th CPC will again be referred to the Government by the Postal Board. If all the Postal Federations and Unions/Associations join together and go for an indefinite strike from May 6th as decided by the PJCA, Government will be compelled to include GDS under 7th CPC.

But the recognised GDS Union is demanding separate committee and conducting separate strike, breaking the unity of five lakhs Postal employees. Separate strike for a separate committee will weaken the demand for grant of civil servant status to GDS and will help the Government only.

When NFPE, FNPO, AIPEU-GDS (NFPE), NUGDS, Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers, JCM National Council staff side including Railways & Defence are demanding inclusion of GDS under 7th CPC, why recognised GDS Union alone is demanding separate committee and conducting separate strike. Gramin Dak Sevaks should understand the hidden agenda of the recognised GDS union and defeat the demand for separate Committee.

All Gramin Dak Sevaks are requested to join the joint indefinite strike of Postal Joint Council of Action (NFPE, FNPO, AIPEU-GDS (NFPE) & NUGDS) from 2015 May 6th. Our demand is inclusion of GDS in 7thCPC and grant of civil servant status. We don’t want a separate committee..

Yours fraternally,

Now, India Post to sell biscuits, photo frames and mugs - NEWS

CHENNAI: After introducing auxiliary mail services in an attempt to salvage its sinking fortunes, India Post will now sell biscuits, photo frames and mugs. After opening in Bengaluru and Mysore, Chennai's first Post Shoppe will come up at the head post office on Anna Salai next month.
Postmaster General Shri Merwin Alexander said the store would also sell pens, markers, gum, books and souvenirs with the India Post logo.
It will be located next to the multiple counters for postal and banking operations, so that customers can pick up stationery, and more.
"Post Shoppe is aimed at bringing various items of selected utility on sale under one roof. There will also be greeting cards," said Alexander. "Despite the internet, there are still many takers for greeting cards as it makes a difference to the receiver who would cherish it and keep it as a fond memory from a loved one," said Alexander. There was also a plan to have coffee vending machines at the shop, he added.
The postmaster general said the facility would augment the needs of the customer and also add value to the place. "If a customer walks in and finds that he is not carrying a pen, he can quickly get it from the Post Shoppe. And then there are other things he can buy. It is all about customer delight," said Alexander. "In short, it is expected to be a shelf of aesthetics and utility."
After seeing the response in Chennai, India Post will decide whether to replicate the store in tier two cities. Customers are welcome to send in suggestions on the content and feel of Post Shoppe, said an official.
Against the onslaught of email and instant communication using computers and smart phones, India Post has been trying to reinvent itself through a variety of improvised communication services such as e-post, e-money order and e-tracking.

No proposal to introduce flexi-time option for employees: Government -- NEWS

New Delhi: In what may not sound as a good news to government employees, the Centre on Wednesday said there is no proposal to introduce 'flexi-time' option for them.
"No madam," Minister of State for Personnel Jitendra Singh said in a written reply in Lok Sabha.
He was asked whether government proposes to introduce flexi-time option for its employees.
There were reports that the government could introduce this system to lessen the burden on employees who have been putting in more hours after the introduction of Aadhaar-based biometric attendance system.
The standard time in central government offices is 9 am to 5.30 pm. But several employees are putting in more hours. Against this backdrop, some Secretaries have allowed their personal staff to leave early on rotation basis as they also sit late with senior officials and even work on weekends.
Attendance system indicated that government employees who moved to the biometric system are already working 20 minutes longer than they did in September last when the system was introduced, some reports had suggested.
Most employees who come in late, also stay well past 5.30 pm to work more than the mandated 8 hours, senior officials have maintained.
The sixth Pay Commission had recommended flexi-timings for women if they put in the requisite 40 hours every week.

Mobile Post Offices out ..... franchise outlets in ........ !!!

PUNE: The department of posts recently stopped services under the 'post office-on-wheels' initiative due to poor response and lack of revenue. It had introduced two postal vans which would cover various locations in the city to offer doorstep postal services. 

These services were stopped in phases in the last six months due to poor response. "Though the initiative clicked in the initial phase and citizens welcomed the idea, for last one year, there has been a considerable drop in the response and daily earnings. A decision was taken to stop these services after reviewing the response and revenue generation," officials in the administration said. 

Pune was the first city in the state to have such a service. The department would announce the schedules of the two vehicles for every week for the benefit of members of the public from respective areas. The vehicle would work in two shifts in a day to cover important residential colonies and roads. The vehicle's staff was authorized to handle postal business, including various e-enabled services, opening of new post office saving accounts, issue of certificates, sale of postcards, inland letters and envelops. "We have stopped the services as of now. There is no plan to restart them immediately," officials said.


Meanwhile, officials said four new franchise post offices had begun functioning in the city in the last 10 months to cater to the requirements of citizens. These offices have commenced in newly developed residential areas of the fringes including Katraj, Narhe, Chinchwad and Bhosari. Besides, a new post office was started in Nighoj area located in Manchar in Pune district. 

The franchise postal outlets offer services like any other post office. The outlets have been opened as per requirement wherein people can purchase postal stationery. The project has been working in the city successfully for the last few years. The department identified the areas to extend postal services through franchise outlets, officials said. 

According to the officials, there was no proposal to open a new post office in the city area in the current financial year. In fact, steps were initiated to relocate existing staff to other locations to make sure that postal delivery reached customers on time. There are over 60 delivery post offices working under Pune circle. 

The Scheme 

Counter services are franchised through the franchise scheme, while delivery and transmission will be through the department. The franchisee will provide service across the counter for a minimum defined time schedule with flexibility to work round-the-clock.
