Divisional level agitation against administration-Notice submitted to the Supdt of Pos Mavelikara on 29.10.2013

The Supdt of Post Offices
Mavelikara Division

No: AIPEU Mvk     Dlgs         Dated  at Mavelikara HO the 28/10/2013
Sub: Agitation programme regarding
Ref: Joint memorandum dtd 09.10.2013


Your kind attention is invited to the joint memorandum dtd 09.10.2013, submitted by the Divisional secretaries of unions affiliated to NFPE.

Though many urgent and serious grievances and problems were included in the memorandum, the same remains unattended and unreplied. Many issues involving genuine problems of the employees and smooth functioning of offices are being ignored. Monthly meetings are avoided in a routine manner and held in a perfunctory way. Staff grievances are not handled in a fair and just manner and few are treated as more equal. The Divisional office was very adamant in implementing the unjustified and inconvenient transfer orders of our members but the transferred official at the divisional office continues there even after the stipulated date and after joining of the substitute.

All offices are working in hazardous atmosphere due to lack of sufficient number of scanners, generator battery or UPS battery. Cases of Departmental offices require immediate repairing and strengthening are unattended while lakhs are being spent for stone laying functions of offices. And, above all harassing of staff is in the high. Senior officials and Spm’s working at operative offices are being harassed by Divisional office and officers in the guise of project arrow. Inconvenient and hazardous circumstances faced by the staff including delivery staff are not being taken in to account and indiscriminate harassment is the order of the day. Calling for explanation of postman staff of Kayangulam HO by IP is a recent example. Obtaining explanation from an official is part or preliminary step of disciplinary action and it can be done only by a superior authorized for that. Though we have included in the memorandum, no action was seen taken in this matter.

We feel that the situation and work atmosphere prevailing in the division are not staff friendly, cordial or fair.
    The working committee meeting of the unions held on 18/10/2013 decided to adopt agitational measures against the anti employee attitude of administration.

As  the first phase, it is decided to conduct a Divisional office march on 05.11.2013.

                                                                                            Yours faithfully

Was posted in two sub offices even though MACP II and MACP III  officials available in the tenure transfer posted as PAs.

3)      Attempt to downgrade Pattolimarket PO
Seven MPKBY agents were transferred to other offices with out the consent of agents and with out consulting their appointing authority. Reduction in  the work load of the office with the intention of downgrading  the office.

4)      Retaining excess staff in Divisional Office.
All the tenure transfer are effected promptly by Divisional Office within the
 stipulated date without considering genuine grievances of affected officials. The only transfer order which is still not implemented is one OA of divisional Office even after joining of the substitute at Divisional Office resulting in excess staff in Divisional Office where LSG offices are functioning in acute shortage

Against the assurance given to the union the agitation started by the union in November 2012 was withdrawn. Following the assurance given by SPOs that proposal will be sent to RO for retention of Post. No further action was taken against the assurance given to the union
9)      Delay in sanctioning TA Bills.
TA Bills of more than one year is pending. TA Bills of officials deputed to PTC, Mysore and other training programmes are long pending. TA advance granted at the time of deputation is too meager that the mess fee can not be paid fully with the advance. As training programmes are pre-planned adequate fund/advance should have granted.

10) Inadequate supply of Computer/Computer accessories
In almost all offices in the Division is facing acute problem of  faulted and obsolete computers and Printers and without the back up of UPS. Urgent supply of new computers and UPS battery.

The cabinet has rejected the India Post proposal for starting commercial banking services

Cabinet grounds India Post bank plans....By  | Yahoo Finance India

The cabinet has rejected the India Post proposal for starting commercial banking services on the ground that it does not have the expertise to handle banking operations as a result of which the venture was not likely to be viable.

Top government sources said the proposal for starting commercial banking services by India Post that was aimed at enhancing financial inclusion through the wide network of the organization has been dropped by the cabinet after the finance ministry expressed reservations over the proposal.

The proposal needed an immediate transfusion of Rs 1,900 crore by the government.

However, the postal department has a poor financial track record. It has piled up huge losses over the last 11 years and has been losing badly to private couriers. India Post reported a loss of Rs 6,346 crore in fiscal 2011-12 which weighed against its credibility.

However, India Post is doing well on the savings front. Its outstanding balance under the Post Office Savings Scheme stood at Rs 6.05 lakh crore on March 31, 2013. This is half the deposits of State Bank of India and double that of the largest private lender ICICI Bank.

The postal department is one of 26 contenders for banking licenses. It had moved the proposal to the cabinet in order to enable it to meet the financial eligibility criteria of the Reserve Bank of India for new bank licenses to be issued by January next year.

India Post needs the government’s permission for the Rs 700 crore capital that is needed to set up the bank if it gets a licence. It will then require an additional Rs 1,200 crore in the first five years of its operations.

Unfortunately, over half of the population in rural India, do not have a bank account and the proposal for a postal bank would have a negative impact on government’s push to financial inclusion. The postal department has close to 1.55 lakh offices across country, with 1,39,040 in rural areas.

India Post reported a loss of Rs 6,346 crore in fiscal 2011-12.
