DOP&T disagrees to exempt the Dept. of Posts from the purview of the Screening Committee

The Dept. of Posts moved with the Dept. of Personnel to exempt the Postal Department from the purview of the Screening Committee. In the meeting held on 16.02.2009, the DOPT Secretary Committee did not agree to exempt the Postal Department from the purview of Screening Committee. It is learnt that it has only agreed in principle to allow 1/3rd of all the direct recruitment vacancies including those lying vacant for more than a year to be filled up now.
The Sixth Pay Commission has already recommended to the Govt. to scrap the Screening Committee from the next financial year.

GDS Committee

It is learnt that the Department has finalised its proposals on the GDS Committee recommendations and the recommendations of Gopinath Committee. The file is to be cleared by the Joint Secretary & Financial Advisor before submission to our Honourable Minister of Communications & IT. The Unions are neither called nor consulted in this regrd.

Post Offices to become hub of financial services - says Finance Minister

The acting Finance Minister Shri.Pranab Mukherjee while presenting the interim budget in Parliament on 16.2.09 said that the department of Posts will get Rs.620 crore to carry out allround development and repositioning through technology induction and entreprenerial mangement and added that the government plans to make post offices the hub of financial services and as a move in that direction it plans to set up 100 financial marts and 500 franchise outlets. "The aim is to effectively utilise network and reach for providing value added services through linkages with various agencies, organisations, especially for delivery of social security scheme," the minister said.
He said 5,000 Post Offices are targdted for computerisation and networking. Also, 100 more branch offices, along with 50 sub post offices, would be opened in 2009-10.
The north eastern region is also poised to get a boost as out of the Rs.620 crore total outlay, Rs.62 crore would go to the region, he said.

Interim Budget

Reactions to this vote-on-account have been adverse. This is because people treated this as a budget and had unrealistic expectations, each lobbying for fiscal concessions. The Govt. is within the boundaries of what an outgoing government should do on a vote-on-account.
Rs. 620 crores is allotted to the Department of Posts towards modernization programme. The Finance Minister said that "Project Arrow" programme will receive govt. support to provide technology enabled services and the NREGS for a delivery system.

Membership verification again:

Consequent on the judgment of the Honorable Madras High court, there will be fresh verification. Declaration should be submitted to head of divisions and not to DDOs.

Other impacts are:
1. For GDS union, there will be no re-verification.
2. No Departmental councils and Regional councils (JCM), till the re-verification is over and Union/ Federation are recognised.
3. Anomaly committee may be constituted.
4. All the nominations made to Departmental councils and Regional councils will be cancelled.

Creation of separate Postmaster's Cadre

It is learnt that the Postal Board had cleared a proposal for creation of Postmasters' cadre and the Recruitment Rules have been amended and sent to the DOPT and that the first examination also will be held soon in this year. The scheme envisages that 30% of all supervisory posts would be a separate track on examination and 70% supervisory posts at all levels would be another track on seniority-cum-fitness. Officials at every level from LSG, HSG-II and HSG-I would be requested to select either of the two tracks as one time measure. They will thereafter go up only in their selected track and even the posts in Group B level will be segregated for both tracks separately.
There are 116 posts of Senior Postmasters (Group B) and 25% of these posts are likely to be filled up by examination by the officials who have been promoted under Fast Track examination (30%) and the balance will be filled up by seniority basis. It is learnt that LSG officials with 5 years service in that cadre will be eligible to appear for the examination. Even Inspector (Posts) is eligible to take up this examination. The officials who are promoted to the posts of Senior Postmasters are eligible to Group A posts after completion of 3 years in that cadre. Already there is a provision that LSG officials who have completed 5 years of service in that cadre can appear for 6% posts in Group B cadre. This will also continue besides the above examination.
Officials in one track cannot cross the other path. There will be separate gradation lists for both tracks. The declining of promotion by seniors and reluctance to move away from their parent divisions is cited as a reason for the department to create a separate cadre for Postmasters and to encourage younger officials with aptitude to get the promotion through examination.

The CHQ had expressed its anguish and protest over the attitude of the department for not consulting the Unions concerned before forwarding the proposal to the nodal ministry and sought full details of this scheme.

Landmark Judgment: “Students have right to see answer sheets,” says Calcutta High Court.

Allowing greater transparency in the evaluation system, the Calcutta High Court on 5th Feb.’09 rules that a student has the right to see his exam answer sheets, and educational institutions, no matter how big, should allow it.

The landmark judgment came on an appeal by Calcutta University against a single bench order asking it to show a maths answer sheet to a Presidency College student who had sought re-evaluation.

The division bench of Chief Justice S.S.Nijjar and Justice Dipankar Datta upheld a single bench order and directed authorities to act on all such pending applications and show answer sheets to aggrieved students within a month.

In the single-judge order, Justice Sanjib Banerjee had held that a student has the right to see his answer sheet under Article 19 of the Constitution, which guarantees freedom of expression. “The student might make a mistake while writing answers hurriedly and should be allowed to see the script so that he can rectify himself,” he had observed.

(Will this be implemented in respect of Govt.Departmental examination also? We shall try= G.S)

Dept. of Posts to spend Rs.900 crore on Project Arrow

Sri.Jyotiraditya Scindia, Minister of State for Communications & I T who released Project Arrow’s Blue Book, a set of rules and guidelines to be followed by every Post Office covered under the Project, said on 5th Feb.’09 said that the Department will be spending Rs.900 crore for upgrading the infrastructure of 4500 Post Offices, giving them better connectivity through broad band and providing internet facilities to customers and within six months all the Head Post Offices and Mukhya Dak Ghars and other important post offices both in rural and urban areas will be covered under this project.

The Minister claims that the Project so far has been highly successful in regard to improved delivery of mail and money orders besides given better facilities to Postmen particularly those working in rural areas.

The Minister said that the aim of the department is to equip all post offices with the latest technology so that mail delivery and money orders mechanism gets faster and more efficient and established a system where we can track delivery of mail, money orders and other articles delivered through Post Offices.

He added that the department had taken help from global consultant McKinesey and other government agencies for the modernization programme.

According to the Minister, that after this project is completed, India Post plans to diversify in other fields like financing, retail and banking.
