Respected Sir,

Sub:- Non-settlement of GDS demands - Two days strike with Postal JCA - Reg.

I would like to draw your kind attention on the following issues of GDS. The entire GDS employees are very much agitated on the non-settlement of GDS demands for the last 4 months. Implementation of positive recommendations of Shri Kamalesh Chandra Committee made partial and so many other positive recommendations are yet to be implemented. Regarding the drawal of Combined Duty Allowance, Composite Allowance and Risk & Hardship Allowances are kept pending in many divisions for seeking necessary clarifications from the Directorate. Membership verification in GDS cadre has been stopped arbitrarily. Non-availability of proper net work connection in rural areas became tedious in the operation of RICT devices in BOs including IPPB. Drawl of benefit from SDBS to retired GDS even after 5-6 years became farce. Repeated requests to the administration through various forums became in vain.

In this background, we have no other option except to conduct a serious trade union action and AIPEU-GDS is decided to go for two days strike on 8th & 9th January 2019 along with Postal JCA (NFPE & FNPO) demanding to settle the following issues in favour of GDS.

1. Implement all positive recommendations of Shri Kamalesh Chandra Committee and grant civil servant status to GDS.

2. The recommendations of the GDS Committee should be implemented from 01-01-2016 regarding new wage scale for calculation of arrears.

3. All the recommendations on retirement benefits to GDS should be implemented from 01-01-2016. Consider perusal about the drawal of benefits from SDBS to the retired GDS in waiting since Jan, 2014.

4. Justified scale fixation to be granted to senior GDS as there are some anomalies while fixing the new wage scale caused drawal of lesser wage and meager benefit compared with new entrants.

5. Bring GDS under the purview of Gratuity Act as recommended by the GDS Committee up to Rs.5.00 laks w.e.f 01-01-2016.

6. Issue orders on the following recommendations as ensured in the minutes of the meeting dtd.31-07-2018 with GDS unions.
(a) Children Education Allowance
(b) Emergency leave to GDS
(c) Accumulation of Paid Leave to a maximum of 180 days
(d) Insurance Scheme
(e) Limited transfer facility
(f) Voluntary discharge scheme
(g) Qualifying service for LDCEs.
7.Restart the process of membership verification in GDS cadre as it was arbitrarily cancelled.

8.Combined Duty Allowance, Composite Allowance, Risk & Hardship Allowance should be granted to GDS as per the recommendations of the GDS Committee without any modification.

9.All vacant posts of Departmental cadres viz., MTS, Postman, MG allotted to the GDS should be filled up as and when the vacancy arises every year keeping in view of the age of GDS and cut-off date of the examination. Conditions like 3yrs / 5yrs minimum service may be relaxed and allow the suggestions made by the GDS Committee. Condition of possessing Driving License at the time of examination may also be relaxed.

10.Fill up all vacant posts in GDS cadre to avoid combination of duties in the back ground of RICT & IPPB rolled out in BOs.

11.Grant Pension to the promoted GDS to the Departmental cadres based on Supreme Court Judgement in SLP No. (C) 13042 of 2014.

12.Proper net work availability should be made in all rural areas after introduction of DARPAN in BOs.

13.Grant funds to draw all kinds of incentives liable to GDS viz., MNREGS, DBT Schemes, PLI/RPLI etc., pending for years in all Circles.

14.Necessary changes may be made in Rule-3A of GDS (C&E) Rules, 2011 in case of Rule-3A (i),(ii),(iii),(vii)&(ix) in favour of GDS in the changed pattern of working conditions in the BOs besides the recommendations of the GDS Committee.

15. Introduce Medical treatment facility to GDS as suggested by the GDS Committee.
Yours sincerely,
(P.Pandurangarao)

Sub: Resolution adopted by the Legislative Assembly of NCT of Delhi to call the attention of Hon'ble Deputy Chief Minister to abolish National Pension System (NPS) and reinstate the Old Pension System in the interest of lakhs of Government Servants'.

Sir,
The Legislative Assembly of the National Capital Territory of Delhi unanimously adopted the following resolution moved by Shri Ajay Dutt, Hon'ble Member of Legislative Assembly in its sitting held on 26/11/2018:
"The Legislative Assembly in its sitting on 26 November 2018 resolves that:
Taking note of the negative consequences of the anti-employee National Pension System (NPS) that is imposed on the Government Servants by the then NDA Government in 2004 and sustained by the UPA-1, UPA-II and NDA-II Governments,
given that fact that, unlike the old pension scheme, the NPS;
does not give any guarantee to the employee either for assured returns on investments or for minimum pension,
does not provide for family pension or social security,
does not provide for loan facility when in dire need,
does not provide for annual increments and hike in DA,
does not allow the employees to withdraw enough money from their own pension fund to meet their medical emergencies,
leaves the employees at the mercy of volatile markets and the forces that have notoriously being manipulating the markets,
imposes draconian restrictions on withdrawals from pension fund,
allows the insurance companies to exploit employees by way of forcing them to buy annuity for minimum of ten years even after retirement, and
runs contrary to the spirit of welfare state as enshrined in the Constitution.
Given the fact that the pro-people and welfare oriented Government of NCT of Delhi is strongly in favour of restoring the rights and privilleges of its employees by way of replacing the NPS with the time tested old pension scheme.
Resolves to urge upon the Government of India to scrap the NPS with immediate effect and bring at once all the Government Servants working under the Government of NCT of Delhi under the old pension scheme and restore to them all the benefits of the old pension scheme wherein the fair and legislative pensions benefits are disbursed through the Constitutinal Fund of India, so that the dedicated work force of the Government of NCT of Delhi and their families will be able to lead their lives with sense of security and dignity, and further resolves to urge upon the Government of India to restore the old pension scheme in place of NPS or the benefit of all the Government Servants working under the Government of India and also to activity encourage other States to follow this true welfare measure."
Yours sincerely,
(C.Velmurugan)
