DISCUSSION WITH SECRETARY, POSTS OVER
---------------------------------------------
SECRETARY ASSURED THAT ONLY MINIMUM
REQUIRED ESSENTIAL SERVICES
WILL BE MAINTAINED
----------------------------------------------
NECESSARY CLARIFICATORY ORDERS TO
CPMGs WILL BE ISSUED.
----------------------------------------------
Today (26.03.2020) discussion was held with Secretary, Department of Posts regarding the panic and anger created by Secretary, Posts instructions to CPMGs issued on 25th March 2020 to ensure functioning of all Postal / RMS offices including Branch Post offices.
We have expressed our strongest protest against this inhuman and indifferent attitude of the Postal Administration, compelling the Postal/ RMS employees to ensure functioning of all offices, at the risk of their life. We have made it clear that we are not  against providing  minimum essential services in a very few selected offices to the public , as we stand fully with the measures declared by the Govt of India.
We also made it clear that as the entire country is under  lock down including road and rail traffic, no purpose will be served by keeping ALL Postal/RMS offices open. We also told the Secretary , Posts , that Federations don't want to give a call for non-cooperation or strike action when the country is passing through biggest crisis , but such inhuman , provocative and insensitive orders of Postal authorities will compel us to resort to nationwide protest action , which we earnestly want to avoid.
    Secretary, Posts agreed that certain confusion and unpleasant situation has been created at ground level, after the Directorate orders dated 25th March 2020, even though his intention behind the orders was not for opening all offices. After detailed discussion, Secretary, Posts, assured that revised clarificatory orders will be issued to all CPMGs in this regard. Secretary, Posts also told that due to unavoidable compelling circumstances, if employees could not attend office, no disciplinary action will be taken against them. 
  We are waiting for the clarificatory orders of Directorate, as assured by Secretary, Posts.

Today Karnataka and Andhra are celebrating ugadi , a festival of inviting new year. In this hour of crisis my Federation made endless efforts to get all the POs closed. Though we got maximum result but could not be successful in closing all Pos. Hence, we are constrained to greet for the New Year and Vasant Navaratri festivals whole heartedly. I pray this new year will secure the lives of every Indian. I request all my brothers and sisters to stay in home as far as possible, ensure safety of your life and of your family let the New Year to bring healthy, happy life to all.
