Implementation of GDS Committee Recommendations – Latest Position

Today the General Secretary, NAPE Group C and the Secretary General, FNPO met the Secretary, Department of Posts and urged release of orders on GDS Committee recommendations and payment of arrears to GDS before Diwali. Letters were also submitted by FNPO, NAPE Group C and NUGDS to the Secretary (Posts) seeking payment of Rs.10, 000/- as advance immediately before the festival pending disbursement of arrears. The Secretary informed that the minutes of Cabinet Meeting are expected on Thursday and orders will be issued on the same day of receipt of minutes. We also met the concerned DDG and he has also said that even if the order is received on 9th morning, he will issue orders on the same day evening. If the minutes are received on the 9th evening, he will dispatch the orders on Saturday morning.

The officers have suggested the Union the following action plans to help the GDS colleagues to get the disbursement before the festival:

The Divisional Secretaries, Circle Secretaries of NAPE Group C and NUGDS will send the copies of undertaking to be obtained from the GDS employees by the DDOs before effecting the payment and submit the undertaking duly signed by the concerned GDS to the DDOs without waiting for the DDOs to send the declarations. Proforma of undertaking is given below. This is to avoid non submission of declaration as a hurdle for the disbursement.

The orders are expected on Friday, the Divisional Secretaries should meet the concerned SSPO’s/SPO’s and request them to attach staff on holidays by incurring OTA for fixation of revised TRCA based on the examples given in the Directorate orders. The tables given in the GDS commission report will not be useful as 5% TRCA is added for fixation benefit from 1.4.2004.

Meanwhile the DDOs and staff of Accounts branches may be requested to prepare and keep the skeleton bills ready well before receipt of fixation orders from the Divisional Office.

I hereby undertake that any excess payment that may be found to have been made as a result of incorrect fixation of pay or any excess payment detected in the light of discrepancies noticed subsequently will be refunded by me to the Government either by adjustment against future payments due to me or otherwise.

Dear Sir,

Thanks for your expeditious action in getting the GDS orders released from Dte. Before release, all GDS staff in and around Melur(Madurai) were informed by me about the steps taken by the CHQ and the result was appreciated by all of them including many NFPE leaders.Thank you very much.
