Recommended changes in Rule 3 - A of the Gramin Dak Sevaks (Conduct & Engagement ) Rules , 2011 - GDS Pay Committee .

Date : 28.1.2017


Recommended changes in Rule 3 - A of the Gramin Dak Sevaks (Conduct & Engagement ) Rules , 2011 - GDS Pay Committee .

What will be the  use to all GDS without amending the Rule 3- A (i) i.e.A Sevak shall not be required to perform duty beyond a maximum period of 5 hours in a day.

Now a days majority of the GDS performing their duty beyond 5 hours.In some of the Circles like Andhra Pradesh and Telangana all the GDSBPM 's are performing their duty from 10 to 14 hours.

India Post Payment Bank got final approval from Reserve Bank of India in the last week.Rural Information and Communication Technology is on pilot basis in 3 Circles.After implementation of these two Technologies in Branch Post Offices, what will be the fate of all GDS ? GDS Post Offices workload will be definitely more than 8 hours in all most all the Circles.

So , we must fight with the Government of India for providing 8 hours workload and minimum wages in the Department of Posts by amending the Rule 3 - A (i).

These GDS C&E Rules are not valid as per the Constitution of India.

CH.Laxmi Narayana ,
President ,NUGDS.

Amartya Sen on demonetisation: Note-ban an undemocratic move akin to unguided missile


The Bharat Ratna awardee, Amartya Sen, said decisions get taken in China based on the vision of a small group of people, while in a democracy like ours, things move only when there is public demand.

Nobel laureate Amartya Sen on Saturday termed note ban as an unguided “missile” fired “unilaterally” by the government without adhering to the democratic conventions. “…every now and then we get missiles fired by the government unilaterally. Demonetisation one fine morning is of course just such a missile where there are reports coming in of hardships and suffering though it is not quite clear where the missile has landed,” Sen said.
The remark was made by Sen during a talk titled ‘Healthcare for all: Why and how’ here, was done while comparing decision-making in a democratic country like ours and the Communist China.
The Bharat Ratna awardee said decisions get taken in China based on the vision of a small group of people, while in a democracy like ours, things move only when there is a public demand for it.
“Our political decisions, however, in contrast have to involve the public,” he said, comparing our situation with China and going on to mention the demonetisation exercise as an aberration from such a convention.
Drawing attention to the critical challenges faced by the healthcare sector, the professor of economics and philosophy at Harvard said, “unilateral thoughts” like demonetisation cannot be of help.
“Firing unilateral thoughts are not the way to reform healthcare in the kind of democracy that is India,” Sen said. It can be noted that the US-based Sen has been critical of the demonetisation announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on November 8.

Union Budget may levy new cess to provide social security to coolies

Union Budget may levy new cess to provide social security to coolies

Government may announce a new cess in the forthcoming Union Budget 2017-18 to cover around 20,000 railway coolies under social security schemes run by the retirement fund body EPFO.

“There is a proposal from the labour ministry to levy a cess of 10 paisa per railway ticket to cover 20,000 railway coolies under the ambit of social security net through the Employees Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO),” a source said.

“The proposal makes a lot sense because 10 paisa cess per ticket will not burn of a hole into travellers’ pockets. Besides it would help railways to mop up funds to provide social security to coolies,” said the source.

This proposal is a one of the initiatives of government’s overall efforts to bring over 40 crore informal sector workers under the social security net of the EPFO and others like ESIC.

According to a back-of-the-envelope calculation, levying of this 10 paisa cess will help in collecting about Rs 4.38 crore every year, which will be enough to provide basic minimum facilities like PF, pension and group insurance to coolies.

Indian Railways issues 10-12 lakh rail travel tickets everyday, including 58% reserved tickets. Thus, the move can help mop up about Rs 1.2 lakh every day for the purpose.

Chairman of the Central Board of Trustees, EPFO’s apex decision-making body, labour minister Bandaru Dattatreya had already assured the members to look into the proposal mooted by employee   representative Ashok  Singh, the vice-president of Indian National Trade Union Congress, had floated the proposal at the EPFO’s trustees’ meeting in Bengaluru on December 19, 2016.

The forthcoming general budget is likely to be tabled in Parliament on February 1, 2017.

The proposed cess of 10 paise is on every ticket sold by Indian Railways. It will not be levied per passenger. One ticket sold by Indian Railways can have multiple passengers.
