Dear Comrades - NFPE Delegation met the Postal Services Board Member [D] Shri. Samant on 25th May 2009. In fact Comrades Senthil Kumar and Dinesh - both System Administrators from Tamilnadu Circle who are involved in the task of organising the System Administrators - also were taken along with the Delegation. The main issue focussed was on the creation of System Administrators cadre and absorption of all present day SAs in the new stream. Some other issues like disturbance of SAs by way of transfer; Problems encountered by SAs due to e-MO software; were also discussed.
Member [D] assured that the work of appointing a Technology Consultant is in progress and within a month or two expected to be over. The Technology Consultant would go into the issue of structrual layers of the intended new Technology Wing. The final authority for creation of a cadre with relevant qualifications for new Recruitment Rules etc will be the DOPT. However Member [D] assured that the contribution made by the present System Administrators in helping the technology infrastructure installed so far would definitely be favourably considered while the question of absorption of SAs into the new stream is considered.
As for as e-MO and related problems are concerned, Member [D] assured the Department is going for a proper interface technology for smooth working of all softwares instead of present piece meal installation of separate software for each and every work. He assured that would eliminate snags and will help overcome such problems.
NFPE / CHQs would be following up the issue of SAs continuously.
Secretary General NFPE
