Privatisation  of Post

Respected  all,
Greetings from India

As expected the Postal reforms started in India Post, leading to privatization.
As a basic step the outsourcing is being implemented in the Sectors of Mail Booking and Delivery. In the Banking Sector the Rural Banks are merged with postal Savings Bank and in the India Post payment Bank 100% recruitment from the market already done leaving the existing posts of Postal personal of the Savings Bank. As you know one committee recommended for dividing India Post into 6 corporations as done in Japan Post by Cory Zeme.  This was opposed and stopped by the postal unions.

In the second term of a Government led by Sri Modi the public sector undertakings Govt sectors like railways, insurance sectors like LIC of india were opened to market shares on privatization.  

The defense civilian employees working in the 42 ordinance factories earning 400millions were sold to Ambani Group of Companies and the agitating employees were crushed with an ordinance of dismissal and three years imprisonment.

The labour reforms started in industrial sector and in the Government sector who are governed by Statutory rules and without amending statutes framed under the provisions of constitution of India, severe amendments are made making of recognized trade unions non functional.  

Taking the experience of ordinance factories my union is compelled to file writ petitions in the high court in all Postal Circles by spending thousands of rupees to overcome from the litigation.  But the relief is very much temporary and the survival will end with the statutory amendments once approved.  
In this connection I refer to the webinar by UNI on 30th October 2020 in India and paper printed by professor Sarath T. Savanth.

FNPO the direct affiliate of UNI understood the situation and struggling for the international support for the moral support and financial support as it cannot bear the expenses for training and enlightenment of the Cadre in the new situation of Postal as well as labour reforms.  The survival now is not guaranteed. They should be prepared for the struggle and legal ligations/battles and negotiations in the new environment.
The UNI APRO faced these situations in south east asia and negotiated the governments and achieved positive results.  
My fervent appeal before UNI world congress to examine the serious situation, assist the major affiliate in India for surviving financially, legally and by negotiations.

Thanking you all, 

With fraternal greetings,
Vasireddy Sivaji
Secretary General, FNPO

Employees will gather at Ramlila Maidan to demand restoration of Old Pension Scheme.


Government employees from both Central and state departments are set to gather at Ramlila Maidan on August 10, united in their call for the reinstatement of the Old Pension Scheme. As announced by a group of railway union leaders, the event titled 'Pension Rights Maharally' will be organised under the umbrella of the Joint Forum for Restoration of Old Pension Scheme (JFROPS)/National Joint Council of Action (NJCA).

Addressing the media during a press conference, Shiv Gopal Mishra, the national convener of NJCA and the general secretary of All India Railway Men's Federation (AIRF), conveyed that a significant portion of employees who commenced government service after January 1, 2004, strongly oppose the New Pension Scheme (NPS). 

These employees express apprehension about their post-retirement prospects, feeling that they have been stripped of the Old Pension Scheme and involuntarily placed under the New Pension Scheme, PTI reported.

"Due to this, the future and old age support of millions of employees are in jeopardy and this is why we have formed the Joint Forum for Restoration of Old Pension Scheme (JFROPS)/NJCA," PTI quoted Mishra as saying. 

The upcoming 'Pension Rights Maharally' is scheduled for August 10 at Ramlila Maidan in Delhi, commencing at 9:30 am, as confirmed by Mishra.

The rally is expected to attract a diverse participant pool, encompassing Central, state, railway, and PSU employees, along with teachers, defence personnel, and ex-paramilitary personnel from across the nation, Mishra indicated.

Mishra mentioned that the group has organised various demonstrations, rallies, and torch processions on a regional level. They have also submitted memorandums to district officials, governors, cabinet secretaries, and even the prime minister, highlighting their concerns regarding this matter. Mishra voiced the growing discontent among employees due to what they perceive as the government's "anti-employee policies."

Mishra emphasised that if leaders are entitled to the benefits of the Old Pension Scheme, then the employees who dedicate their entire careers to public service deserve similar support during their retirement years. He asserted that restoring the Old Pension Scheme is the right of these employees. "This is their right and the government should immediately restore the Old Pension Scheme," he said.

Mishra warned that if the government fails to address their demands, the possibility of a nationwide protest known as a 'Bharat Bandh' will be announced, bringing the nation to a standstill. In such a scenario, Mishra asserted that the government would bear sole responsibility for the resulting consequences.
