Department of Posts
(GDS Section)

Dak Bhawan, Sansad Marg,
New Delhi-110001.
Dated : 17.12.2018

To,

The Chief Postmaster General
All Postal Circle.

Subject : Provisional appointment of BPM/ABPM/Dak Sevak subject to pending verification of character and antecedents/caste certificate/educational qualification etc. on one time basis.

Sir/Madam,

A proposal was received from Telengana Circle vide letter no. E/GDS/2017/III dated 25.10.2018 for examining the issue of provisional engagement of BPM/ABPM/Dak Sevak subject to pending verification of character and antecedents/ caste certificate/educational qualifications etc. on one-time basis, in the identified LWE District.

2. The issue has been examined in depth by Establishment Division. On review of number of candidates who have joined as GDS, it is observed that, in most of the circle, the number of candidates joined as GDS is quite low since large number of candidates from other states had also applied. This has caused delay in verification of character and antecedents/ caste certificate/educational qualification etc. This has resulted in delay in issue of engagement orders. Further opening of BOs in LWE areas is a government priority. Therefore, the competent authority has approved for relaxation of precondition of verification and allowing provisional appointment of BPM/ABPM/Dak Sevak subject to pending verification of character and antecedents/ caste certificate/ educational qualifications etc. as a one time measure for all the Circles for engagement of GDS including in LWE area for online engagement in 1st Cycle.

3. In this context. it is clarified that while issuing provisional offer of engagement, the candidate may be asked to produce the originals educational certificates and other documents such as caste certificate, ex-servicemen certificate, persons with disability certificate, certificate of date of birth etc. on the day of attending division office/ joining. The originals may be verified on the day of attending divisional office/ joining by the Appointing Authority who will have option to get the documents verified from the issuing authorities, in case the documents appear to be suspicious. All the required certificates will, however, be verified from the issuing authority within a period of 180 days.

4. The provisional offer of engagement as well as the engagement order shall clearly specify that if any information or documents submitted by the candidates is found incorrect at a later stage, he/shall be terminated from the engagement in accordance with Rule 8 of GDS(Conduct & Engagement) Rules, 2011.

Yours faithfully,

(S.B. Vyavahare)
Assistant Director General (GDS/PCC)

GDS Conduct & Engagement Rules, 2011 : Rule 3A (iii) - Overview

Date : 20.01.2019

GDS Conduct & Engagement Rules, 2011 : Rule 3A (iii) - Overview

Rule : A Sevak shall have to give an undertaking that he has other sources of income besides the allowances paid or to be paid by the Government for adequate means of livelihood for himself and his family.

Committee views :

• The Committee also found out during the visit to Circles that this condition is not being implemented in letter and spirit and merely exists on paper in most of the cases.

• This conditon exists in paper only.

• The declarations given by GDS were mostly not correct.

• No action has been taken by the Dept.for submitting incorrect declarations.

• How alternative means of livelihood is available to GDSs who come to work from outside the post village due to changed residence condition ?

• The employeers who hire labours for different works in the rural areas ,will not hire GDSs for 2-3 hours in a day after working hours of GDS Post Office.

• A large percentage of GDSs are now solely dependent upon the wages which they receive from the Department.

Finally, the Committee feels that this condition needs to be changed appropriately which suits the requirements of the Department as well as GDSs.

Department View  :

• After examining all these issues, Directorate dont want to made any changes in this rule and hence they are in the view that " the maximum working hours is restricted to 5 hours according to Rule 3A(i) , there is no logic seen in taking away this condition.

NUGDS(FNPO) #stand  :

• Both these rules i.e, 3A(i) & 3A(iii) are interlinked 

• We submitted and proved before Kamalesh Chandra Committee and Directorate that " majority of GDS were performed their duties beyond 5 hours with the standards of workload norms assigned by DoP & upto 10 to 15 hours by including MGNREGS and Social Security Pensions.Hence, requested the DoP to provide 8 hour duty to all GDS.

If 8 hours duty provided to GDS by DoP, there is no need to take declarations from GDS for other sources of income.

                              (or) 

It is evidently proved by the GDS Pay Committee Report , that" this rule exists in paper only".

Conclusion :

There fore, we ask, request and demand the abolition of GDS Conduct & Engagement Rules,2011 for better livelihood of India Post.
