Dear Comrades,
VII-CPC – Terms of reference-

            The members of the National Secretariat of the Confederation available at New Delhi met on 23rd Oct. 2013 and again on 24th October, 2013 to discuss and formulate our views on the 7th CPC terms of Reference.  On the basis of the discussions, we prepared a draft terms of reference and submitted it for consideration of the Staff Side.  The important points we placed in our draft for the consideration of the staff side were:-

(a)   The Commission to examine the present structure of pay and allowances and suggest changes.
(b)   To give effect to its recommendations from 1.1.2011 i.e. wage revision must be after       every five years.
(c)   D.A (50%) to be merged with pay with effect from 1.1.2011.
(d)   To determine Interim relief taking into account the erosion in the value of wages over the years,
(e)   To include GDS within the ambit of the 7th Central Pay Commission.
(f)     To revise the retirement benefits and accord pension maintaining parity in quantum in respect of past, present and future pensioners.
(g)   To extend the statutory defined benefit pension to those who have entered service after 1.1.2004.
(h)   To settle the anomalies raised in various fora of JCM on a priority basis and within a specified time frame.
(i)     To provide cashless/hazzle free Medicare to employees and pensioners.

The Government of India had convened a meeting of the Staff side representatives on 24.10.2013 to discuss the terms of reference.  The meeting took place at 3.00PM on 24thunder the Chairmanship of Secretary, Personnel.  Besides the points mentioned above, the staff raised many other matters connected with the setting up of the CPC. viz. the inclusion of labour Representative as a Member of the Commission; the anomalous  situation brought about by the Grade pay based MACP Scheme; the requirement of a mechanism to settle the 6th CPC related anomalies;  the need to allow the proposals of Cadre Review to be examined by the Government independently without referring it to CPC;  to have members in the Commission who have gained  expertise to impart to the Commission the nuances and functional requirements of various Departments;  to relook at the new Pay Structure brought in by the 6th CPC in the light of the experience between 2008 to 2013 etc.  In conclusion the staff side requested the Government to provide it with a draft terms of reference taking into account the views placed by them.  It was also proposed by the Staff Side that on exchange of the draft terms of reference prepared by the Staff Side and the  Official Side, a meeting with the Secretary, Personnel and Secretary, Expenditure could be arranged to iron out the differences, if any.
The Staff Side met again on 25th at its office and deliberated upon various views presented by different organisations and finalised the draft terms of reference. We shall publish the said draft terms of reference as and when the same is submitted to the Government.
It is obvious that despite the unanimous position taken by all the organisations, the Government may not necessarily agree with many of the basic issues, viz. Date of effect, merger of  DA, Interim Relief, Coverage of GDS etc.  We appeal to our affiliates/ State COCs to continue the campaign amongst the employees to generate necessary sanctions.
With greetings,
Yours fraternally,

Secretary General.

No. Local agttn /2013                                                                                                 10-10-2013

            The Superintendent of POs

Subject:  Denial of indispensable legitimate requests from staff members of NFPE,
    extreme preferential treatment to the staff members of FNPO & intense 
    partiality shown in APAR violating rules and regulations-rdg.
            A reference is invited to the subject pertaining to the following issues discussed many times.
Stop forth with all sort of discrimination & favouritism !
 1. There is extreme sweeping discrimination in granting numerical gradation in the APAR of employees. The APAR preparation has been made use to revenge on our staff members at the will and pleasure of SPOs. The effort exerted to run and manage the office and update all CBS prerequisites in the time of acute shortage of staff for the last months has been wilfully ignored by the administration. 
(i)                 Whereas staff members of our union has been harassed & suffered SPOs revenge on them; maximum gradation has been granted to the dear and near who are the staff members of FNPO, violating all sort of rules and regulations in the matter.
(ii)              APAR has been written to a staff member of FNPO who was on ML from 2012 December to 2013 September with higher grading. This has done without monitoring and supervising the work and character of the official. This is against the general principles and rules of APAR. This is enough to expose the intense partiality of SPOs.
(iii)            The rule says that the officer concerned should abstain from writing the Report on the Government servant who is his close relative.  But here one PA at Adur HPO revealed to her colleagues that SPOs is a close relative of her. SPOs had written her APAR without observing the rule concerned.
(iv)            The general principle and rules says that APAR must not be used as a tool to control or discipline the staff. But here APAR has been clearly used as a tool to harass one of our union member and given her very low grading and noted a remark that inquiry case is pending. (case of Smt. Shylaja Kumary K, SPM, Mannady) No charge sheet has been issued till this time; no charge has been decided against her till now. And the remarkable business achievement she had attained also ignored.
 The rule says that the Superior officer should write the Annual Performance Assessment Report (APAR) of every one of his subordinate in an objective and impartial manner.  SPOs have violated this instruction purposefully to appease his dear and near ones and to satisfy his revenge on others.
    2.  At present the Cycle Advance has been disbursed with vested interest to those who are not entrusted with outdoor duties. Thereby the same is denied to the genuinely deserving applicants and GDS who are entrusted with outdoor duty.    This is clear instance of attitude of Divisional administration towards its employees. More funds for Cycle Advance may be requested from C O and the same may be disbursed to the actually deserving employees without fail.
     3. DG Posts instruction is there to review the work load and enhance the allowance if found justified in the cases of BPMs who requests after earned a higher business & transaction at their own office. On the basis of this instruction many BPMs belong to our union has been represented for a review of work load, and the issue had been taken for discussion in monthly meetings. But though months had elapsed there is no result. All such cases may be reviewed and allowances may be enhanced immediately before causing much loss to them.
    4.  The relief of one of the Official transferred in c/w the Rotational Transfer has been delayed purposefully and later he was relieved from the post under the written instruction of SPOs, but he does not joined to the transferred station and post. After two three days he was permitted to join again in the same post from which he was got transferred out. This is highly irregular. But the whole drama enacted at Adur HPO was in connivance with SPOs. In this case also the rules and instructions has been twisted and misinterpreted according to the requirement of SPOs intense preferential treatment. The irregularity may be rectified and the official may be ordered to join at his new post and station.
     5.  In recommending for NOC, for going abroad to stay with relatives SPOs glaringly exhibits his preferential treatment. In the case of Smt. Arathy PA, PTAHPO, on inquiry at CO, received the reply that her request has not received there till now.  This much delay has not been found in any such previous cases. The discrimination in this case may be stopped, and her request may be forwarded with proper recommendation without making further loss to the official.
 All the above cases are only few instances for the general attitude of SPOs in dealing with issues of staff and are the glaring examples for twisting, misinterpreting, violating the rules for his own vested interests. All the above cases may be settled in favour of officials.
We demands the glaring preferential attitude of SPOs may be stopped forth with.

If this attitude of preferential treatment is not ended and the issues mentioned are not solved around a table, this federation has decided to go with relay-dharna for fifteen days from the first week of 2013 November and closed down strike following to it. If the conducive atmosphere prevailing in the division disrupts, divisional administration will be responsible for it.                                                                                    Yours faithfully,

      All Circle Secretaries /Divisional Secretaries & Branch Secretaries of All NFPE unions.
Dear Comrades,
            As you are aware, NFPE is consistently fighting for the cause of entire Postal, RMS and GDS employees and making all efforts for protection of their interests. There are so many achievements and gains of NFPE for the last many years. NFPE is the organization which is fighting continuously against the anti working class and anti people policies unleashed by the Government of India in the form of Liberalization, Privatization and Globalization along with the main stream of the working class. NFPE is also providing all upto date informations through Website, Postal Crusader and SMS.
            But we regret to inform you that inspite of our repeated requests, many Branch and Divisional unions are not remitting quota regularly to NFPE causing financial crisis. For better functioning sound financial position is a must.
            We, once again, appeal to all Circles/Divisional and Branch Secretaries of all NFPE unions to clear all quota dues and remit quota regularly to NFPE as per the following address:

            Financial Secretary, NFPE,
            1st Floor, North Avenue Post Office Building, New Delhi-110001
        Further it is requested that maximum amount as Bonus Donation may also be remitted.

            Another thing which is worth mentioning is that many Branch/Divisional unions are not remitting subscription of Postal Crusader. A huge amount is being spent every month for printing Postal Crusader which  weakens the financial position of NFPE. Now as per decision of Federal Executive one copy of Postal Crusader will be sent by VPP to each branch for Rs. 120/- (Rs. One hundred twenty only)  (as annual subscription of Postal Crusader + V.P. Charges) from the next month once in a year.

            So please co-operate and help NFPE to serve you better,

            With fraternal greetings,                                             Yours Comradely,

                                        (M. Krishnan)
                                    Secretary General
NFPE, P3 CHQ & R3 CHQ has today jointly filed a case in the CAT Principal Bench Delhi for counting of RTP Service as regular service for all promotions and pensionary benefits. Case registration No. 3647/2013 dated 08.10.2013. Com. S. K. Vyas Ji, Veteran Leader of the Confederation is our Advocate. Hereafter there is no need for filing separate cases by employees.
Let us hope for the best.
