Sir,

I am directed to refer to this Department’s letter no.01-07/2016-SPB-I dated 22.07.2016 on the above cited subject and say that following clarifications are hereby issued in respect of Casual Labourers in the Postal Department in line with DOP&T OM No.49014/2/2014-Estt(c) dated 28.07.2016:

(a) The Department’s letter No.01-07/2016-SPB-I dated 22.07.2016 restores the provisions of the scheme as it existed prior to this Department’s letter No.45-6/2005-SPB-I dated 02.09.2005. The benefit of GPF and Old Pension Scheme is applicable to all those Casual Labourers who are covered under the Casual Labourers (Grant of Temporary Status and Regularization) Scheme issued vide letter No.45-95/87-SPB-I dated 12.04.1991 even if they have been regularized on or after 01-01-2004.

(b) As the benefit of Old Pension Scheme and GPF is applicable to only those casual workers who are covered under the above stated scheme of 1991, all the circles may strictly ensure that it does not lead to demand by regularly recruited fresh employees appointed on or after 01.01.2004 for similar benefit in place of NPS.


Yours faithfully,

Enhancement of ceiling of bonus order issued to our Departmental employees on 02.09.2016.  On 03.09.2016 our NUGDS General Secretary sent letter to the Department of post to extent the enhancement of ceiling of bonus to GDS employees. There was no response from Department. On 15.09.2016 our Federation sent a letter to the Secretary demanding enhancement of ceiling of bonus to GDS. On 16.09.2016 Postal JCA sent letter to the Secretary on the same.
Meanwhile some of the colleagues post the news in their web site on 15.09.2016 stating that the enhancement of ceiling of bonus to GDS “File has been sent to JS&FA and after approval from him will be sent to Finance Ministry for sanction”.
, again now they are saying the file is referred to GDS committee, what happened in between 15.09.2016 to 23.09.2016 we do not know. Now they are announcing dharna programme , We don’t want comment more on this issue now.

FNPO will not aggravate any issues under any circumstances, at the same time we will not compromise core issue at any cost.
