CHANGE THE GDS RULES

Date : 16.02.2020

Engagement of delivery staff/RMS staff in non delivery or non-mail related activities-reg.



Previously this order was withdrawn by Directorate. But Heads of all Circles send the feedback that it is convenient to engage postman and GDS in non-mail related issues particularly IPPB.

How, Circles decide that the daily work of GDS/Postman does not effect the doing of IPPB. 

For  particularly GDS, delivery is seperate , conveyance is seperate and doing BPM duty is seperate.

So many BPMs are having either mail conveyance  or mail delivery and some of them are having the both. In this juncture how a single handed BPM performed his duty besides IPPB.

Majority of GDSBPMs in AP& Telangana were in second scale TRCA.Of course they are working beyond 8 hours but receiving the TRCA for 5 hours only as per C&E Rules 2011.

Is there any necessity to work on incentive scheme beyond 5 hours as ordered by DoP. 

So, we demand the DoP, not to pressurise any GDS to do the business of IPPB as the scheme is mainly on incentive structure to GDS. 

If any employee working with 8 hours of duty  , then any organisation has a chance to announce incentive structure for those employees for working beyond 8 hours. 

But our GDS system is Reduculate. In papers and Rules they assigned 5 hours only and asked to work on more schemes beyond 5 hours is unconstitutional and illegal. 

And finally they ordered  , all GDS must have the alternate source of livelihood for him/her self and his /her family. 

Due to working on RICT device, it is not possible to do any alternate work in the concerned BOs. 

We demand change the rules. 

I think All GDS Leaders at All India Level of All Unions should ask this issue with Directorate by removing Rule 3A (I) of GDS Conduct & Engagement Rules, 2011 now it is amended as GDS C&E Rules, 2020 by providing 8 hours duty to all GDS.

GDS Conduct & Engagement Rules,2020

GDS Conduct & Engagement Rules,2020


This seems to be Department itself amended GDS Conduct &Engagement Rules,2011 and formulated 2020 Rules with out any permission from Communication Ministry or Central Government.

Due to this action it is very clear that these Rules are not statutory and they may be amended at any time any sub rule.

This time also Department ignored the Union Demand i,e.Rrmoval of Rule 3A(i) which states GDS are not allowed to perform their duty beyond 5 hours.By ignoring primary demand of GDS they amended do many sub rules.

We request all the National leaders to raise this issue at Directorate level for the removal of Rule 3A(i) which is not suitable in the present scenario and also illegal .
