LATEST HIGHLIGHTS FROM HEADQUARTERS

HIGHLIGHTS FROM HEADQUARTERS

  • Junior Accountants residency period before promoted to Senior Accountants - Department of Posts order for restoring the earlier 3 years period instead of 6 years is expected to be issued shortly. It is confirmed that the DOPT has favourably decided to restore status-quo-ante on this issue. NFPE Delegation which met the Director [PAF] got the above confirmation. This is a victory to the combined efforts of All India Postal Accounts Employees Association [AIPAEA] - NFPE - and Confederation. The NFPE and AIPAEA have placed the issue in the Strike Charter and also discussed with the Secretary [P] level meeting on 13.01.2009 and also consistently trying to settle the issue. Confederation of Central Government Employees played a major role in settlement of issue at the DOPT level. Comrade S.K.Vyas President Confederation and also JCM National Council Standing Committee Member took personal interest in the issue and paved the way for settlement. Postal Accounts Employees can now rejoice the victory.

  • Much sought out relief for the Postal Accounts Employees stationed in Jammu who aspire to go back to Kapurtala is in the offing. Consequent on the DOPT cancelling the Screening Committee operations w.e.f. 1.4.2009, there will be no problem for future recruitment process and hence the long pending requests of officials for going back to Kapurtala DAP from Jammu would now be processed quickly. This was assured to the delegation of NFPE by the Director PAF. This issue was also being pursued vigourously by the AIPAEA and NFPE for many months.

  • NFPE Delegation consisting of Secretary General NFPE and General Secretaries P3 and R3 met the DDG[Establishment] on 22.04.2009. The issues of Cadre Restructuring; Road Mileage Allowance to System Administrators; Doubling of PO&RMS Accountants Special Allowance and grant of Special Allowance to TBOP Officials man the post of PO&RMS Accountants; Implementation of Group D higher pay for all Group D; Stopping recovery of OTA amount paid to ineligible Officials; Formation of Anomaly Committee for 6th Pay Commission related issues; Revision of FSC; and Recovery from APM Accounts Pune for over-drawal-to Postmen.

  • Delay in processing of Cadre Restructuring issue and formation of Anomaly Committee is raised by us. We were told that the proposals for Cadre Restructuring from FNPO has not been submitted. We reminded that our consolidated proposals have been submitted on 15.01.2009 and that the Department can process our proposals and react with their own views. The Anomaly Committee formation will be taken up only after the FNPO nominates their two representatives. We have also approached FNPO leaders for early nomination of their members.

  • DDG[Estt] showed his directions for fixation of higher pay for all Group D as per DOP Orders dated 27.03.2009 before the end of April 2009 and also for completion of one-week training to all non-matriculate Group D. Circles / Divisions to monitor the progress to ensure fixation of higher pay scale with 1800/- Grade Pay to all Group D before end of April 2009.

  • DDG ordered study of our proposal for grant of Road Mileage Allowance to System Administrators for taking early favourable decision.

  • The issues of PO&RMS Accountants; OTA to ineligible officials; Revision of FSC; Recovery of over-drawal from APM Accounts Pune will be favourably looked into by the Department.

  • It is ascertained that after the GDS file gone to Finance Ministry, no further information on the progress could be available. The implementation of GDS Committee and or Adhoc Payment of arrears etc appear likely only after the conclusion of General Elections.

  • ACP orders also only after General Elections.

END OF SCREENING COMMITTEE - A VICTORY FOR OUR CONSISTENT STRUGGLE

HOWEVER DEPARTMENT OF POSTS IS NOT ALLOWED TO FILL UP ALL THE 24000 VACANT POSTS BY DOPT AND ALLOWED ONLY 1/3RD VACANT POSTS OF 2008-09 [ 2255 POSTS ONLY ] TO BE FILLED UP
 
GOVERNMENT ORDER FOR NOT EXTENDING THE PERIOD OF OPTIMISATION BEYOND 1.4.2009 IS ISSUED ON THE EVE OF THE ELECTIONS
 
COPY OF THE ORDER IS REPRODUCED BELOW:
 
 

F.No.2/8/2001-PIC

Government of India

Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions

New Delhi-11 0001

 

Dated, the 9th April, 2009

 

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

 

Subject: Optimisation of Direct Recruitment to Civilian Posts- regarding

 

Reference: (i) OM NO.2j8j2001-PIC dated 16.5.2001

        (ii) OM NO.2j8j2001-PIC dated 30.8.2006

 

The undersigned is directed to refer to the above-cited subject and to say that vide this departments O.M.No 2/8/2001-PIC dated 16th May 2001, the Scheme of Optimization of Direct Recruitment to Civilian Posts was introduced for five years with the objective of rationalization of the manpower in various Ministries / Departments of the Government of India. As per the Optimisation Scheme, all Ministries / Departments were mandated to prepare the Annual Direct Recruitment Plan for each year in order to prioritize the fresh intake of manpower. After the expiry of the initial five years period, the Optimisation Scheme was reviewed in the year 2006 in consultation with the Department of Expenditure, Ministry of Finance and it was decided to extend the scheme for a further period of three years i.e., up to 31st March 2009 subject to a review after the receipt of the recommendations of the Sixth Central Pay Commission.

 

2. In this regard, the Sixth Central Pay Commission has recommended, "multiskilling of the Government employees which would increase their operational efficiency while simultaneously optimizing the staff strength. It is however, noted that while rightsizing in Government is necessary given the changes in the work process due to technology and consequent reduction of layers, a blanket ban on filling up of vacant posts across the board can impact effective functioning. More flexibility is required in this policy for effective service delivery and care has to be taken that administrative delivery structures do not become hollow or thin in critical areas ". (Para 6.3.10)

 

3.  Keeping in view the above recommendation of the Sixth Central Pay Commission, the optimisation policy has again been reviewed in consultation with the Department of Expenditure, Ministry of Finance and it has been decided not to extend the validity of the Optimization Scheme beyond 31.3.2009.
