2)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 7th CPC and grant of civil servant status. We don’t want a separate committee..

Global trade: keeping the customer top of mind
05.02.2015 - As consumer and business habits change and global e-commerce sends more goods through the post, Posts must provide customers with services they actually need instead of services Posts “think” they need.
Simplifying international services must go hand in hand with developing e-commerce solutions
“We have to look at our complex range of services through the customer’s eyes and be prepared to review and change these to meet the ever-increasing marketplace changes and requirements,” said Chris Powell, from Great Britain’s Royal Mail, chair of the UPU’s products strategy and integration group.
The group recently met at UPU headquarters ahead of the upcoming session of the Postal Operations Council (POC) this April to review progress and discuss next steps.
Simplifying the UPU’s range of global services is an important activity during the UPU’s current work cycle. It is essential to keeping the network sustainable, said Powell, especially as the organization deploys its new e-commerce programme, ECOMPRO.
Designed to foster confidence in global online purchases and deliveries, ECOMPRO provides the building blocks Posts need to provide solutions to many of today’s e-commerce challenges in areas of delivery, customs processing, merchandise returns, quality of service and payments, among others.
In late 2014, the UPU made progress in creating services customers and e-tailers want when the POC adopted specifications for a new optional parcel service covering goods up to 30 kg and offering track-and-trace features. Efforts are now being focused on making this service operational by January 2016, with pilot projects expected to start by July. Proposals for a remuneration model and delivery standards linked to the new service will also be presented at the upcoming POC session.
Status quo risky
For Terry Dunn, co-chair of the POC’s committee dealing with physical services, modernizing, integrating and ensuring the viability and sustainability of the UPU’s physical product portfolio must be done in parallel to the development of regulations to foster global e-commerce.
“The world is changing. Are we (postal services)? The status quo carries risks,” he said, recalling that satisfying customers’ changing needs was central to the UPU’s mission of stimulating “the lasting development of efficient and accessible universal postal services.”
“There is a fundamental change in how people and businesses are transacting. How they are using postal products is also changing and what they expect from postal services is changing as well,” he added.
The POC is set to meet from 15 April to 1 May, right after the UPU’s World Strategy Conference in Geneva.

Ref: Your letter No. 3/1/2015-JCA dated January 2015
The views expressed in your letter under reference are well taken. The JCM Scheme was introduced in 1966 with the provision of holding periodical meetings to resolve the grievances of Central Govt. employees. But the Scheme has been kept in suspension in animation for the last ordinary meeting of NC/JCM was held on. 15.5.2010. Standing Committee much less the Anomaly Committee is no substitution to ordinary meeting. Since beginning of theintroduction of the Scheme the meeting of the Standing Committee of NC/JCM was used to be held one/two days earlier to the ordinary meeting to iron out the progress of the outstanding items of ordinary meeting and the same procedure continued for years together. Unfortunately, of late, this procedure has been given good by.
The removal of anomaly of CPCs are not only the issues. The grievances of Central Govt. employees are piling up, the Govt. has been taking unilateral decisions in detriment for the interest of the Central Govt. employees. There is no attempts on the part of the Govt. to discuss those issues by holding ordinary meeting of the NC/JCM, causing serious resentment and anger amongst Central Govt. employees.
Vide this office letter under reference we have submitted the issues which are of serious consequences in the service life of Central Govt. employees.
You will appreciate that Staff Side NC/JCM can not remain a silent spectator when grievances are not resolved and the Govt. continue to take unilateral decisions in detriment to the interest of Central Govt. employees.
However, meeting with Cabinet Secretary in Chair may be held to discuss the issues already submitted for arriving at a logical conclusion on the issues.

4)Traveling Allowance for Attendant accompanying Government Servant during tour / training – Finance Ministry issues Orders for grant of TA
Government of India
Ministry of Finance
Department of Expenditure
North Block, New Delhi.
Dated the 17th February, 2015.
Subject- Travelling Allowance in respect of Attendant / Escort for accompanying a Government Servant with Disabilities on travel during tour/training etc.
References have been received in the Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure seeking provision in the Rules/instructions regulating Travelling Allowance, in order to allow grant of Travelling Allowance to the Government servant with Disabilities in respect of an Attendant/Escort accompanying such a Government servant with Disabilities during travel while on tour/training, etc. At present there are no provisions in the Travelling Allowance rules which allows Government servants to claim Travelling Allowance in respect of Attendant/Escort accompanying them on tour/ training, etc. where such Government servants require the assistance of an Attendant/Escort for travel.
2. The matter has been considered and it has now been decided to allow Travelling Allowance in respect of the Attendant/Escort, for accompanying a Government servant with Disabilities during travel while on tour/training, etc., to be claimed by the Government servant with Disabilities. The admissibility of Travelling Allowance, in respect of the Attendant/Escort accompanying a Government servant with Disabilities, would be subject to the following conditions:-
(a) Ordinarily, the field offices/local administrative offices at the touring station, which the Government servant with Disabilities is required to visit on tour or training institutes where the Government servant with Disabilities is required to undergo training, would be required to provide an Attendant/Escort, from the existing pool of staff/persons employed, from the time the Government servant with Disabilities arrives at the destination and till such time the Government servant with Disabilities departs from that destination back to his headquarter station/place from where the Government servant with Disabilities had initially proceeded to that destination. During travel abroad, either on foreign tour/training, the Indian Missions/Posts (Embassy of India) at the country of visit would be required to.provide an Attendant/Escort, from the existing pool of staff/persons ,employed, during the period of stay of the Government servant with Disabilities in that country.
(b) Only when field offices/local administrative offices at the touring station or training institutes or Indian Missions/Posts at the country of visit, as the case may be, officially express their inability to provide an Attendant/Escort to the visiting Government servant with Disabilities, would the claim of Travelling Allowance in respect of Attendant/Escort accompanying the Government servant with Disabilities arise. In such cases, fare for travel of Attendant/Escort accompanying Government servant with Disabilities would be reimbursed. While for travel by air, Airlines-are expected to provide assistance to Government servant with Disabilities during travel as per Airlines policies, a Government servant with Disabilities however, can take along his personal Attendant/Escort for travel by Indian Railways for assistance during journey and boarding/de-boarding, even when an Attendant/Escort at destination station is provided officially.
(c) In all cases, Government servant with Disabilities are required to purchase travel tickets for self and Attendant/Escort at concessional rates, if any, offered by Railways/Airlines.
(d) The facility of Travelling Allowance for the Attendant/Escort would only be admissible to those Government servants with Disabilities, wherein it is certified by the competent Medical Authority that such a person compulsorily requires assistance of another person for travel. Under this clause, necessary certificate is to be obtained from the Head of Department of a Government Civil Hospital designated for the type/form of disability of the Government servant. Based on the certificate from competent Medical Authority, Heads of Departments would have to further satisfy the need for an Attendant/Escort during travel of the Government servant, before allowing the journey for the Attendant/Escort.
(e) Subject to clause (d) above, Travelling Allowance for the Attendant/Escort would be admissible to the Government servant with Disabilities while on tour (domestic or foreign). However, the authority deputing such a Government servant with Disabilities on tour would have to record in writing that the tour is considered necessary in the discharge of duties and responsibilities assigned to the Government servant with Disabilities.
(f) Subject to clause (d) above, Travelling Allowance for the Attendant/Escort would also be admissible to the Government servant with Disabilities when deputed on training provided it is recorded by the authority competent to depute such officials on training that such training is a mandatory training for career progression or induction training for probationers.
(g) Travelling Allowance consists of two parts; Mileage Allowance and Daily Allowance. No Daily Allowance would be admissible to the Attendant/Escort of the Government servant with Disabilities. Mileage Allowance would be admissible to the Attendant/Escort at the same rate and in the same class of accommodation, as the Government servant with Disabilities is entitled to under the Revised Travelling Allowance Rules, read with travel restrictions imposed under austerity measures/economy instructions, issued from time to time by the Government. However, in case of travel by any of the modes of conveyance by road, as prescribed under the Travelling Allowance rules, no separate mileage allowance would be admissible to the Government servant with Disabilities, in respect of the Attendant/Escort, except where the travel is by public bus.
(h) For commuting between residence to office and back, certain categories of Government servants with Disabilities are eligible for Transport Allowance at double the normal rates. As no Travelling Allowance is admissible to. Government servants for training at headquarter station, consequently, no claim of Travelling Allowance to the Attendant/Escort of the Government servant with Disabilities would be admissible for training at headquarter station.
3. In so far as persons serving in the Indian Audit and Accounts Department are concerned, these orders issue in consultation with the Comptroller & Auditor General of India.
