NFPE DEMANDS ENHANCEMENT OF GRADE PAY TO HSG-II/BCR & HSG-I ON PAR WITH IPO/ASPOS

DEPARTMENT IS POSITIVELY RECOMMENDING TO MINISTRY OF FINANCE TO ENHANCE THE GRADE PAY FOR IPOs & ASPOs & GROUP 'B' TO 4600/-; 4800/- & 5400/- RESPECTIVELY.
 
NFPE HAS DEMANDED TODAY THAT AN IDENTICAL ENHANCEMENT OF GRADE PAY SHOULD BE RECOMMENDED FOR HSG-II/BCR [FROM 4200 TO 4600/-] AND HSG-I [FROM 4600 TO 4800/-] & FOR GROUP 'B' FROM 4800 TO 5400/- TO PROTECT THE HORIZONTAL AND VERTICAL RELATIVITY BETWEEN HSG-II/BCR/HSG-I AND IPOs/ASPOs.
 
Letter of NFPE addressed to the Secretary Department of Posts in this regard is placed hereunder for the information of membership:
 
PF-14/2010 Dated 19th January 2010

 

To

 

The Secretary

Department of Posts

Dak Bhawan

New Delhi – 110001

 

 

Sub: Modification of Grade Pay to HSG-I and HSG-II/BCR Officials on par with ASPOs and IPOs  to maintain pre-6th CPC horizontal and vertical relativity – reg.

 

This Federation draws your kind attention to the orders of the MOF F.No.1/1/2008-IC Dated 13.11.2009 revising the Grade Pay of 4200/- into 4600/- for the holders' of pre-revised scale of 6500-10500. We also draw your kind attention the positive stand taken by the Department of Posts to recommend similar hike in Grade Pay to IPOs with consequential further enhancement of GP to ASPOS and Group B. In this background, this Federation seeks an identical enhancement of GP of HSG-II/BCR with consequential further enhancement of GP of HSG-I and Group 'B' on the following grounds:

 

  1. 6th CPC recommended the PB-2 scale of 8700-34800 with Grade Pay 4200/- to HSG-II/BCR by amalgamating erstwhile 5000-8000; 5500-9000; 6500-10500 pay scales. Therefore w.e.f. 1.1.2006 the HSG-II/BCR officials are placed on the 8700-34800 Pay Band 2 with GP 4200/- on par with the IPOs who were also placed in the same PB-2 with GP 4200/-. This maintains the pre-6th CPC horizontal and vertical relativity of these cadres.

 

  1. 6th CPC recommended the PB-2 scale of 8700-34800 with Grade Pay 4600- to HSG-I through its recommendation vide Para 7.6.15 and the same had been accepted and implemented by the Government also. Thus the HSG-I officials are placed on par with the ASPOs in the same pre-revised scale of 7450-11500 w.e.f. 1.1.2006. This maintains the pre-6th CPC horizontal and vertical relativity of these cadres.
  2. Therefore the positive decision of the Department of Posts to recommend enhancement of IPOs Grade Pay to 4600/- on the analogy of the placement of IPOs in merged scale of 6500-10500 w.e.f. 1.1.2006 should be ipso facto be made applicable to the HSG-II/BCR who are placed in the same amalgamated pay scale with Grade Pay 4200/-.
  3. The Grade Pay of HSG-I is therefore consequently to be enhanced as 4800/- on the same lines of the Grade Pay of ASPOs since both HSG-I and ASPOS are on identically placed pay scales both before and after the 6th CPC.
  4. The Grade Pay of Group B is therefore consequently to be enhanced to Grade Pay 5400/- since both the HSG-I and ASPOs are promoted to Group B through examinations and Seniority –cum-fitness.
  5. The absence of a similar and identical hike in Grade Pay of HSG-II/BCR and HSG-I would disturb the existing pre-6th CPC and 6th CPC recommended horizontal and vertical relativity between these cadres and the cadres of IPOs/ASPOs over and the above the already disturbed relativity in comparison to the pre-5th CPC pay scales.

 

This Federation therefore urges upon you to kindly recommend to MOF a similar hike in Grade Pay to HSG-II/BCR; HSG-I cadres also to maintain at least the existing horizontal and vertical relativity between the cadres of IPOs with the HSG-II/BCR and between the cadres of ASPOs and HSG-I. We would highly appreciate your early action in this important issue.

 

Thanking you,

 

Yours faithfully,

The undersigned is directed to refer to para 9.4 of the 23rd Report on Government policy of appointment on compassionate ground given by Department Related Parliamentary Standing Committee on Personnel, Public Grievances, Law and Justice, Rajya Sabha.

The Committee has, therefore, recommended that the Government should come forward with certain new guidelines for the benefit of the employees like creation of a separate Cell, etc.

2. The matter has been considered in the Department. It is not felt desirable for the small Departments to have a separate cell. It is, however, advised that bigger organizations should create a separate cell for handling large number of cases for compassionate appointments in order to ensure timely and meticulous processing of applications. The cell should be entrusted, inter-alia, With the responsibilities as envisaged in the Report of the Committee.

EXTEND TOTAL SOLIDARITY TO GDS UNION PROGRAMME OF ACTION

LAUNCH STRONG SOLIDARITY ACTION ALONG WITH GDS COMRADES
 
NFPE ENDORSES THE CALL OF THE GDS UNION CWC MEETING HELD AT JAMNAGAR [GUJRAT] FOR NATIONWISE INTENSIVE DEMONSTRATIONS / HUNGER FAST
ON 20.01.2010 AT ALL LEVELS
 
The metting of the Central Working Committee of GDS Union had called upon all Circle/Divisional/Branch Secretaries of AIPEDEU to stage intensive demonstration/Hunger fast on 20-1-2010 at all levels and to pass a suitable resolution. The Circle/Divisional/Branch Secretaries to send Telegrams / Savingrams to the Hon'ble Minister for Communications & IT, Minister of State for Communications & IT expressing their strong resentment on the GDS Committee implementation.
 
The Orders of the Department that tightens the work norms of the GDS BPMs is a big blow to the BPMs. If 20,000 cash handling is treated as 1 Point then most of the GDS BPMs will not get higher TRCA slabs. Even maintaining the present Second TRCA Slab will become a difficult task for many. The orders of fixing tightened norms unilaterally by the Department  is most unjustified. All objections by GDS Unions and Federations to the retrograde recommendation of Nataraja Murti Committee recommendations have been ignored by DoP.
 
NFPE ENDORSES THE CALL OF THE GDS UNION CWC AND CALLS UPON ALL REGULAR EMPLOYEES DIVISIONAL AND BRANCH UNIONS TO EXTEND TOTAL SOLIDARITY TO THE GDS UNION IN SUCCESSFULLY ORGANISING THE PROGRAMME OF ACTION ON 20/01/2010.

Ghaziabad is doing beat sorting for Noida post offices also and this helps avoid missents among these post offices even due to wrong pincode from BPC

 

  1. Discussion should be held with CPMG by DPS for identifying and attaching one ASRM for the TD mail office
  2. Proposal for attachment of Ghaziabad mail office with DPS should be examined
  3. All sorting postmen work in the RMS and there is a lot of advantage for others to follow
  4. Outsourced manpower should be through agency and/ or per piece basis rather than per hour or duty spell
