MEETING WITH MEMBER (P) POSTAL SERVICES BOARD


Secretary General, NFPE, Com. M. Krishnan met Sri. P. K. Gopinath, Member (P) Postal Services board on 29.09.2010 alongwith Com. Balwinder Singh, Financial Secretary, AIPEU Group ‘C’ (CHQ) and discussed the MACP related cases. DDG (Estt.) was also present. Member assured that favorable clarification will be issued on all points viz; (1) condition imposed by certain circles that that 10 years service in TBOP or 30 years total service is required for grant of 3rd MACP in case of promotees is not correct. 20 years service from the date of promotion to the PA cadre is enough for getting 3rd MACP. Completion of 10 years service in TBOP or total 30 years service is not required. (2) Defunct Accountant is not a promotion and 3rd MACP to be granted on completion of 30 years of service (3) Declining of promotion prior to issue of MACP orders by Department of Posts (i.e. 18.09.2009) shall be ignored and the officials entitled for MACP prior to issue of the order shall be granted MACP.

The issues regarding issuing of orders on certain issues discussed earlier in the JCM Departmental council such as officiating pay of HSG-II & HSG-I Grade, granting of additional two chances for LGO examination to those who have exhausted 5/6 six chances, Revision of FSC, clarification on dealing with contributory negligence cases are also discussed.

"Postman - Brand Ambassador of India Post"

 

India Post is all set for a facelift.  The Department of Posts (DoP), represented by the unassuming Postman, will shortly add another role for him as Postal Business Correspondent.

 

The postmen will not be only responsible for the delivery of the mails/money order as they have been doing traditionally.  Instead, they will work as the business correspondents of the India Post.  They will sell other services of India Post like, speed post, registered post, logistics post, electronic money order (EMO), postal life insurance, and rural postal life insurance, saving banks etc.

 

India post has unveiled an ambitious plan to train its 55000 postmen as the business correspondents to take on the challenges of market and competitors, chief Postmaster General Mrs. Hilda Abraham said at Bhubaneswar while inaugurating a five day "training of trainers" on Monday at the city-based B-school, Xavier Institute of Management (XIMB).  Twenty five officers from different parts of the country are participating in training programme.

 

"XIMB will be training about 200 trainers of India Post to train the Postmen.  It is a gigantic task to train all the Postmen because of their huge number, diversity in their working languages, difficult working conditions, and more than 150 years of history of  the department," coordinator of the training programme and XIMB faculty, prof Niraj Kumar on Tuesday told "The ET".

 

These trainers are being trained to train the Postmen in skills in business etiquettes, customer relationship management, self initiatives and work planning.  It is planned to convert postmen into a professional postal business correspondents by providing trainings in their business approach and also in their presentation skills.

 

"You should not be surprised if you find a smartly dressed postman delivering you a speed post with all professional business etiquette," added Prof. Kumar.

 

In its bid to bridge the gap of about Rs.6000 crore in revenue generation and expenditure, Indian post is looking to tap the non-core business opportunity to enhance its revenue generation. "Our government has made a lot of capital investment in India Post, particularly in 11th Plan, and now we need to take benefits of those investments.  This is right time to grab the opportunity to give good competition to competing organizations not only in our core business, mail delivery but also in other services which we are offering.  Our Postmen could be the brand ambassador of India Post" Mrs. Abraham said.

 

"Entire country has been divided in to four regions and during the initial phase 50 officers from each region will be trained who will have responsibility of training of the postmen of given region.  While selecting the potential trainers, India Post is ensuring that all the language and geographical conditions are adequately represented" informed Prof. Niraj Kumar.

 

XIMB had done a detailed training need analysis of the Postmen before developing the training module.  The B-school has done training need analysis of selected front line officers of India Post, like, assistant superintendent of Posts (ASPs), Inspector of Posts (IP), and Postmen.  In first stage, XIMB did the Training Need Analysis of all the Assistant Supdt. of Posts (ASPs) and Inspector of Posts (IP) the middle level most crucial cadre of India Post.

 

"We identified rural marketing and marketing communication skills, team building and leadership skills, selling techniques and target setting and creating and managing appropriate management information system as the major issues and accordingly trained more than 250 officers from across the country", Mr. Kumar said.

 

In second stage, XIMB did the training need analysis of Postmen and decided to put the trained officers on the job to train the Postmen as the postal business correspondents.  As the Postmen meet many customers personally, it will be easier for them to have one to one communication and to convince the customer.

 

"Postmen know customers and their requirements very well.  In rural areas they are still part of the rural community and with such a huge network, Postmen can play a crucial role to increase contacts with customers and increase business", Mr. Kumar added.

 

The union government has already earmarked Rs.1877.20 crore for the deployment of the information communication technology (ICT) network over a three year period covering 2010-13.  The government is also mulling to give banking license to India Post.  The Postal department already works as a quasi bank, providing a host of savings products, postal life insurance, pension payments and money transfer services through its 1.55 lakh branches, more than any other bank.

MACP COMMITTEE MEETING HELD ON 15.09.2010

IT IS TOTAL DISAPPOINTMENT TO THE POSTAL EMPLOYEES AS MANY ANOMALIES ARE NOT ACCEPTED BY THE OFFICIAL SIDE FOR SOLUTION

Dear Comrades!

It can be seen from the following gist of discussions took place in the meeting of MACP as published by the Confederation, that many anomalies of MACP are not accepted by the Official Side for settlement.

Most importantly, the issue of Promotees who are denied the same number of financial up gradations by treating the promotions through competitive departmental examinations as regular promotions, has not even been considered fit for discussion. All examinations are competitive in the Department of Posts and therefore every promotee is considered as attained his/her regular promotion and one up gradation is adjusted and only the remaining up gradations under MACP is granted. This issue is not finding a place in the discussion despite our request for inclusion of the same in the demands before the MACP Committee for discussion.

The anomalies like: Implementation of MACP w.e.f. 1.1.2006; granting hierarchical promotional scale of pay at least for the first and second up gradation as existed under ACP Scheme; and allowing option to individual employee to retain old ACP Scheme or switch over to new MACP Scheme have not been accepted to. The department only will be allowed the option to retain old ACP for the whole department or to an entire cadre However, a stand has been taken for instructing the Administrative department to undertake cadre restructuring of the cadres in consultation with the Staff Side which would secure quicker promotion.

Anomalies like doing away of bench mark GOOD for entitlement of MACP in cases the promotions to the higher posts is on the basis of seniority cum fitness has been agreed for further examination.

The entire gist of discussions as published by the Confederation is reproduced below for information:
