No. PF-01(e)/2015                                                                                   Dated – 31.10.2015
            All General Secretaries/NFPE Office Bearers/All Circle, Divisional & Branch    Secretaries of NFPE affiliated Unions
Dear Comrades,
            NFPE along with AIPEUGDS (NFPE) has taken decision to go on 48 hours strike on 1st & 2nd December, 2015 on the four point\s charter of demands.
            NFPE had requested Secretary (P) in writing and by meeting personally to resolve the issues which are pending since long. But it is a very sorry state of affairs on the part of Department of Posts that neither any issue is settled nor even a single line in reply is being given.
            As you all are  aware that NFPE along with PJCA had declared indefinite strike from 6th May-2015 onwards. On most of the items  Secretary (P)  gave positive  assurance in writing in the meetings  during negotiations on agenda of strike Charter of demands and the minutes were circulated among all and were published in all union journals. On 5th May Honourable Minister  Communication also called  meeting with both Secretary Generals NFPE & FNPO and  he also gave positive assurances including  GDS wage revision by 7th CPC and for Cadre restructuring he told  that  he has signed the file after approving the proposals and handed over to Secretary Post.
            But after a lapse of 6 months period no progress is being noticed in any of the matter.
            Earlier National Joint Council of Action  of Constituent Organizations of National  Council JCM had taken  decision to go on indefinite  strike  from 23rd  November -2015 in which  our main demand of inclusion of GDS was also  included in the Charter of  demands
            It was expected that Pay Commission will submit its report upto 30th September, 2015. Pay Commission requested to grant 2 months extension to bind up the office but the Government of India was very much generous to grant 4 months extension to Pay Commission. Pay Commission has completed its task but now Government is interfering and Secretary Finance Ministry has directed Pay Commission to give recommendations keeping in view the fiscal condition of the country and it should not give such recommendations which cannot be implemented. NJCA had deferred the decision of strike from 23rd November, 2015. We as NFPE told in the meeting of NJCA that we are going on indefinite strike in Postal. NJCA leadership requested to review  and reconsider  the decision and change the  date as NJCA has given call of a grand Dharna by All India  leaders of NJCA at Jantar Manter, New Delhi on 19 November,2015. Some of our Confederation leaders and senior leaders of NFPE also advised to review the decision. Accordingly NFPE Federal Secretariat meeting was held at Hyderabad on 11.10.2015 and reviewed the situation and unanimous decision was taken to organize 48 hours strike on 1st & 2nd December, 2015 on the following 4 points of Charter of demands:
            (i) Include GDS in 7th CPC for wage revision and other service related matters. 
            (ii) Implement cadre Restructuring proposals in all cadres including Postal Accounts & MMS. 
            (iii) Fill up all vacant posts in all cadres of Department of Posts (i.e. PA, SA, Postmen, Mail Guard, Mail Man, GDS Mail Man, MMS Driver & other staff in      MMS, PA          CO, PA SBCO, Postal Accounts Staff, Civil & Electrical Wing    Staff, as            per actual sanctioned   strength. 
            (iv) Stop all types of harassment in the name of implementation of various     new      services and schemes and Trade Union Victimization.
            Gramin Dak Sewaks constitute 50% of Work Force in Department of Post. They run 89% Post Offices in Rural Areas. Since 2nd Pay Commission, every  time a Committee headed by bureaucrats  has been constituted to look into the wage revision  and other service related matters  except at the time of Vth  Pay Commission when Justice  Talwar  Committee  was formed which gave  very favourable  recommendations to the GDS  but Government  did not implement 25% of its recommendations. This time NFPE raised the issue to include GDS in 7th CPC and this was supported by Confederation and National Council JCM. But Government has not given any attention towards this demand. During the negotiation on Strike  Charter of demands, Secretary (Post) assured to refer the matter  to Government  of India again third time  with strong recommendations  and  on 05.05.2015 , Hon`ble  Minister Communication had also assured to use his influence to get the GDS included in 7th CPC but nothing has been done so far. It is coming to the notice by some sources that Department of Post is going to form bureaucratic Committee again. We have requested several times that when Pay Commission complete its task than this matter should  also be given to him . Now Pay Commission has been allowed to sit idol for 3 months. This period might have been utilized for the wage revision of GDS. But Government of India is not at all concerned about this poor deprived and exploited section of working class. We cannot tolerate this state. So we have to go to agitation to fight this injustice and discrimination.
            Cadre Restructuring proposals were finalized by the Committee 2 years before. On 5th May 2015 Minister also approved.  JS&FA also cleared the proposals. DOP&T has not raised any objection and suggested to take clearance from Finance Ministry. There is no more financial implications even that Finance Ministry has not cleared the proposal. We have asked Department of Post several times but nothing has been done so far. If it is not implemented before implementation of 7th CPC report. It will be of no use.
            Though Recruitment is going on in the Department of Posts here and there. But there is acute shortage of staff in all cadres because recruitment is not being done as per actual sanctioned strength. If recruitment is made as per actual sanctioned strength and shortage is met out then 50%   problems will be solved automatically.
            Our staff in all cadres is facing so much harassment and victimization. Every day any new service or scheme is being launched without proper infrastructure and sufficient man power. CBS and CSI biggest problem for P-III, 100% delivery for Postmen. Harassment of staff in RMS on OTA, More problems in Circle Office, Postal Accounts and Civil Wing and Electrical Wings are being faced due to staff shortage. If any Trade union leader raises his voice against these onslaughts, he is victimized. Holding of Melas and Meetings on every Sunday and Holiday has become the regular practice against the directions given by Secretary (Post).
            So keeping in all these we have to fight against all these onslaughts and wrong policies of department of Posts and Government of India.
            Whatever we have achieved that is due to struggle only. We have achieved so many things in past by struggles only. If we fight unitedly we will win sure.
            For making the strike 100% successful please follow the following instructions: 
1.         Campaign programme of All India leaders have been declared and published in websites, all circle secretaries of NFPE affiliated unions are requested to consult each other and make all arrangements for the meetings of All India leaders. If any change is needed, can be made with consultation of all.
2.         All India leaders should attend the programmes compulsorily.
      3.           Maximum publicity should be given to the campaign programme.
      4.         Strike notice will be served on 06.11.2015 to the Secretary (Posts) by NFPE leaders.It should be served at all levels by organizing mass demonstrations.
      5.         Joint campaign programme should be conducted by all Circle/Divisional Secretaries in their respective Circles and Divisions and make maximum efforts for grand success of strike by organizing Gate meetings and General Body meetings.
      6.          Circulars/Pamphlets /Hand bills and Posters should be published and send to all. These should be published in regional language also.
7.         Please leave no stone unturned for success of strike.
8.         Give Wide Publicity in local Press and Media.
Yours fraternally,
(R. N. Parashar)

On Wednesday, a team of youngsters tried to rewind the clock a bit and took Chennaiites to a bygone era when sturdy men were employed to deliver messages. Clad in khaki and white, carrying mail bags and spears, these youth walked the streets of Chennai commemorating the service of mail runners, the predecessors of the postal system. Thirty five youngsters relayed two km in the costume and covered 50 post offices on two routes — Mogappair West to General Post office and Valasaravakkam to GPO. They were honoured at a function at GPO.
“It was difficult to manoeuvre in the traffic between Saligramam and Vadapalani. Because of the period costume, people gave me surprised glances and I was even chased by a dog. I understand how mail runners braved weather and animals in the past,” said Dheena M., an entrepreneur who was a volunteer ‘mail runner’ on Wednesday.
The idea to pay tribute to mail runners came about when debut actor and entrepreneur Ram Arun Castro was researching for his upcoming movie Ottathooduvan . “I did not find much information even on the internet on these brave men who met with even fatal accidents on their way to convey messages. There were runners who ran 20 km a day carrying a lantern, a sack of letters and a spear to defend themselves,” said Mr. Castro. He mobilized a group of youth to play the role of mail runners as a tribute.
“Some people mistook us to be beggars as we tried to check for addresses,” he said. The group has also submitted a petition to the postal department to establish a statue for mail runners. There were over 1300 mail runners in the Indian postal department when the service was started in 1854.
Mervin Alexander, postmaster general, Chennai City Region, said: “Even now, we have mail carriers in places like Kodaikanal where mails have to be delivered by

JCM National Council Standing Committee Meeting held on 9th October 2015

Brief Note on JCM National Council Standing Committee Meeting held on 9th October 2015 at New Delhi.
Dear Comrades,
The Standing Committee of the JCM National Council met on 9th October, 2015. As you are aware, earlier, the National JCA had decided to defer the strike action and organize a massive Dharna programme at Jantar Mantar on 19th November, 2015 to register its strongest protest over the Government’s engineered delay in the submission of the 7th CPC Report. Later, the Finance Ministry has issued a statement asking the 7th CPC to factor into its report the fiscal concern of the Government, which was an unwarranted interference in the independent functioning of the Commission and to pressurise the Commission not to recommend wage rise on the basis of a sound and scientific formulation.

The Staff side on receipt of the invitation to have the meeting on 9th October, decided to respond and convey to the Government their strong resentment over the virtual dilution of the negotiating forum as also the above concerns. In the meeting the Staff side was informed that the Secretary Personnel would be meeting the Standing Committee soon and the meeting on 9thwas in fact only a prelude to understand each other’s points of views. It was in the background the meeting was held on 9th October, 2015.
The leader and Secretary, Staff Side conveyed the unanimous decision of the National JCA as under to the Government.
(a) The Standing Committee, as per procedure evolved, must be chaired by the Secretary Personnel.
(b) The JCM Machinery’s functioning should not be diluted.
(c) The promised meeting of the National Council has not taken place so far.
(d) The minutes of the last two meetings of the National Anomaly Committee have not been formally issued.
(e) ‘The Official side Secretary must convene a meeting of the Staff Side to iron out any difference in the draft minutes.’
(f) Normally meetings are held after circulation of the ATS. This has not been done.
(g) The Official Side must convey the anguish of the employees over the delay in the submission of the report by the 7th CPC which they justifyly feel has been engineered by the Government. They also pointed out that they are constrained to believe that the Govt. was unnecessarily interfering in the functioning of the Pay Commission.
We give hereunder a brief resume of the discussions held on the agenda items.
After the initial remarks made by the Staff Side all issues in the charter of demands were discussed. There had been however, no final settlement on any issue as the meeting itself was not convened for that purpose. The Staff Side stated that even the promises held out in the last meeting that the Departmental Council meeting would be held soon was not honoured.
On the question of Pay revision related issues, viz. Interim relief, DA merger, inclusion of GDS etc . elaborate discussions were held. It has come out clearly that on all these issues, the Finance Ministry has taken an nugatory Stand, even though the arguments put forth were extremely untenable. It was pointed out by the Staff Side that the Interim relief and DA merger was denied on the specious plea of submission of the report in the stipulated time. Having extended the time, the Govt. ought to have considered the grant of these two demands. There had been a very elaborate discussion on the question of inclusion of the GDS within the purview of the 7th CPC. The Postal Department’s representatives narrated the efforts made by them to the Government for conceding this demands. The Finance Ministry has stood firm and objected to the demand being agreed to. The Staff Side has, in the given situation of the 7th CPC having finalised its report, requested the Government to refer the matter to a Judicial Committee headed by the present Chairman, 7th CPC as he has now been fully apprised of the functioning of various ministries and Departments of the Government through the interaction with the Staff and official sides. No commitment was however made by the Government to the above suggestion.
On the question of induction of FDI in Railways, Corporatisation of Postal Department and Defence organisations, the representative of the Railway Ministry stated that they are constantly discussing the issues with the Railway Federations and was exploring the possibility of reaching an agreement. In the case of corporatisation of the Postal Department, it was stated that the recommendations made by the Committee was discussed with the Federations and it has been agreed that except induction of certain professionals at the managerial level to fine tune the functioning of the Department in the changed scenario, the Federations have been assured that no structural changes would be made without consulting them. However, in the case of Defence, no discussions with the Federations have been held so far.
PFRDA. The Staff Side pointed out the present scenario in the Government offices, where the number of employees and officers who are outside the ambit of the statutory pension scheme has grown and have reached in certain organisations to the extent of 25 to 30%. These employees are extremely concerned of the new scheme and their anguish have been expressed in many forms. The Unions would be compelled to take drastic action if the Government refuses to heed to their plea to effect a relook or revisit on the matter. The representatives of the Railways pointed out that the Honourable Minister for Railways was convinced of the situation and that was the reason why he had written to the Finance Ministry that in the given situation of the Railway functioning, the new scheme would not only jeopardise the interest of the Railwaymen but also of the Railway Industry itself.
On the specific question raised by the Staff side in the last meeting in respect of resolving the issues of Medical Store Deport and the Printing and Stationery department, the Staff Side stated that only the meeting of the Medical Store Depot was held and the issues have been resolved to some extent. The Printing and Stationery Department has now sent a communication to the Staff Side fixing the meeting on 15th October ‘15. The general issues emanating from the policy of outsourcing and contractorisation was also discussed at length.
JCM functioning had been the central point of discussions. The Staff Side has pointed out that unless the Government makes up its mind that the machinery should be put on operation, no industrial peace would come in the functioning of the various departments of the Govt. of India. The Staff side asked the Department of personnel to collect the information of the number of cases litigated in the courts by the Government employees in 1991 and 2015 and make a comparison to know the seriousness of the problem.
On compassionate ground appointments question, it was stated by the Staff Side that despite advancing no cogent argument by the official side for retaining the 5% ceiling, the Department of personnel does not want to make a relook into the matter. The Staff Side pointed out that large number of applications were pending in various Departments, and the concerned department would not be able to clear them even after 20 years for want of the requisite vacancies. They also pointed out that the decision of the Government to impose the 5% ceiling was amounting to a cruelty imposed on the family members of the Government servants who dies in harness.
The Labour Ministry representative was present at the meeting. The meeting did not discuss the merits and demerits of the labour reforms as the Trade Unions in the country has justifyly concluded that it has been conceived to favour the corporate houses and to take away the existing privileges of the workers. The point at issue, however, at the meeting was as to why the Labour Ministry did not cause a consultation with the Industrial Federations in the Government of India, for whom the Industrial Disputes Act is applicable. The Labour Ministry has assured to convene a meeting of the representatives of such organisations soon.
The Labour Ministry representative also stated that the government has agreed to raise the bonus ceiling but it would not be appropriate for him to make a mention of the quantum as the Cabinet is yet to give its clearance. The Government would be able to take a decision in the matter only after the Bihar elections are over.
The Staff Side explained the background of the demand for five promotions. The reaction of the official side was that the matter must be appropriately discussed only after the 7th CPC report is made available.

Singapore: World's first drone postal delivery takes place on Pulau Ubin island

Singapore has carried out the world's first point-to-point postal delivery by drone SingPost and IDA

Singapore has successfully performed the world's first delivery of mail by drone, conducting a test flight carrying a letter and a parcel with a T-shirt, which crossing from one island to another.

While there have been other similar postal-delivery-by-drone trials conducted by DHL in Germany, Swiss Post in Switzerland and the Posti Group in Finland, Singapore Post (SingPost) claims that this is the first time that an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) has been used for point-to-point recipient-authenticated mail delivery. 

The drone took off from Lorong Halus, a wetland area on the eastern bank of Serangoon Reservoir on mainland Singapore, and flew 2km to the delivery location within just five minutes across open water to Pulau Ubin, one of Singapore's 60 offshore islands, preserved as a rural area of beauty. 

The SingPost Alpha Drone 

The SingPost Alpha Drone was built by SingPost in collaboration with IDA Labs, the research arm of the government agency Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA). 

It can carry a payload weighing up to 500g and travel a maximum distance of 2.3km, but it cannot fly any higher than 45m, which is far below the maximum height of 400m established by civil aviation authorities in Europe and the US.

A map showing the flight path taken by the Alpha drone to make its first ever mail deliverySingPost and IDA 

The drone uses technology from the open source Pixhawk Steadidrone platformtogether with a new experimental delivery platform developed by SingPost and tied to a mobile app. 

"This drone technology is tailored for use in dense urban landscapes. It is energy-efficient and reduces carbon footprint as it is fully battery-operated," said Dr Bernard Leong, head of digital services at SingPost. 

"We have developed a customised solution app equipped with security features and authentication functions to ensure that mail and packages are delivered to the intended recipient. Through this app, users will be able to select their preferred delivery date and time to suit their schedules." 

Still a way to go before drone deliveries take off 

Drone delivery might sound very exciting, but realistically even Singapore, which is known for its early adoption of emerging technologies, admits that it will be some time before UAVs become a regular sight in the sky. 

"Although it will be a while before it is viable for drone mail delivery to take off in Singapore, taking into consideration commercial and safety factors; this first step by SingPost and IDA demonstrates what Singapore is trying out with our Smart Nation vision – to have the various parts of our ecosystem collaborate, experiment with new ways of doing things, and in the process, literally aim for the sky with new technology," said Jacqueline Poh, managing director of IDA. 

Drone guidelines set out by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore, following the passing of the Unmanned Aircraft (Public Safety and Security) Bill in August 2015CAAS

Singapore allows anyone to fly drones within their line of sight, but commercial users must obtain an operator permit and an activity permit, following the passing of the Unmanned Aircraft (Public Safety and Security) Bill in August. Even recreational users are required to apply for an activity permit if they choose to fly the UAV outdoors, but no permit is required if the drone is flown indoors or in an area not affecting the general public.

The Singapore government is keen to push the use of drones in order to ease manpower constraints in the country. In February, local restaurant chain Timbre Group made international news for trialling drone waiters to help deliver food from its kitchens.

சந்திப்பின்போது பேசப்பட்ட பிரச்சினைகள் மற்றும் அதற்கான நிர்வாகத்தின் தீர்வு மற்றும் பதில்கள்  குறித்து கீழே  அளிக்கிறோம்.

1. CBS  தொடர்பான பிரச்சினைகள் குறித்து மட்டுமே கிட்டத்தட்ட 45 நிமிடங்கள் முழுமையாக விவாதிக்கப்பட்டது.  நமது மாநிலச் சங்கத்தின் தொடர் கடிதங்களின் அடிப்படையில் , இதற்கான முயற்சிகள் எடுக்கப்பட்டுள்ள தாகவும், ஒவ்வொரு பிரச்சினைக்கும் நிச்சயம் தீர்வு அளிக்கப்படும் என்றும் CPMG  அவர்கள் உறுதி அளித்தார்.
 a ) முதலில் EOD  அளிப்பதால் ஏற்படும் LATE  DETENTION குறித்து பிரச்சினை தொடர்பாக, கடந்த இரு நாட்களில் INFOSYS  உடன் விரிவாக விவாதிக்கப்பட்டு, மேலும் IBM தரப்பிலும் கலந்து FINACLE SOFTWARE இல் ஒரு தீர்வுக்கு ஏற்பாடு செய்துள்ளதாகவும்,

b ) முதல் நாளைய DC  CLOSURE PROCESS  மறுநாள்  PEAK HOUR இல் எடுக்கப் படுவதாலும், அதே நேரத்தில் மிக அதிக எண்ணிக்கையில் அலுவலகங்கள் MIGRATION செய்யப்படுவதாலும்  PEAK HOUR SLOW DOWN ஏற்படுகிறது . இதனால் பொதுமக்கள் சேவை முற்றிலும் பாதிக்கப்படுகிறது. CUSTOMER  உடன்  COUNTER இல் பணியாற்றும் ஊழிர்களுக்கு தேவை யில்லாமல் மோதல் ஏற்படுகிறது என்பதை சுட்டிக் கட்டினோம்.

Seventh Pay Commission will be mindful of fiscal concerns: Finance ministry

The Commission has been given time up to December 2015 to submit its report on revising emoluments of nearly 48 lakh central govt employees and 55 lakh pensioners 

New Delhi: Finance ministry on Monday said the Seventh Pay Commission will be mindful of the fiscal concerns of the government while giving its report on new pay scales and remunerations for central government employees and pensioners.

The Commission, headed by Justice A K Mathur, has been given time up to December 2015 to submit its report on revising emoluments of nearly 48 lakh central government employees and 55 lakh pensioners.

“We have communicated our concerns with regard to sustainability of public expenditure to Pay Commission. I am sure the members and chairman of the commission are aware of and will be sensitive to our concerns,” finance secretary Ratan Watal told reporters in New Delhi.

The Commission has time till December to submit its report, he said, adding thereafter it would be scrutinised by a secretariat to be set up in the finance ministry. Watal said although the recommendations would be implemented from 1 January, 2016, the burden on the exchequer would not be much in the current financial year.

However, he added, it would have implications in next fiscal. The Commission, headed by Justice A K Mathur, was appointed by the previous UPA government in February 2014 for 18 months. Its terms was extended in August 2015 by four months till 31 December, 2015.

The government constitutes the Pay Commission almost every 10 years to revise the pay scale of its employees and often these are adopted by states after some modifications.

As part of the exercise, the Commission holds discussions with various stakeholders, including organisations, federations, groups representing civil employees as well as Defence services. - PTI
