Sub: Undue delay in issue of orders for revised wages to Casual labourers – reg.
This Federation is constrained to bring to your kind notice that there has been inordinate delay in directorate issuing orders for payment of revised wages to Full Time Casual labourers and Part Time Contingent on the basis of the minimum wage of the Group D employees after 6th CPC.
There are standard orders for payment wages to casual labourers engaged and after each pay commission revising the wages of Group D employees, the wages of all kinds of casual labourers are suitably revised on the basis of the minimum pay in the pay scale of regularly employed workers in the corresponding cadre without increment. It is most unfortunate that even the dearness allowance instalments granted to regular employees are not being granted to these sections. We are enclosing Photostat copies of some of such orders issued by the Department of Posts in the past for ready reference.
The inordinate delay this time is causing extreme concern amongst all the sections of casual labourers in the Department of Posts. We request that necessary orders may kindly be caused to be issued, at least before the end of this year.
Encl: As above
Secretary General NFPE
