MNOP committee meeting is held today (27.9.2011) in the Dak Bhawan. Mrs. Manjula Prashar Member (Operations) and Chairperson of the committee presided. Mrs. Shanthi Nair, Chief PMG, Tamilnadu Circle, Shri Rishikesh, Director, Mails, Com M.Krishnan, Secretary General, NFPE and Sri D. Theagarajan, Secretary General, FNPO attended the meeting which lasted for 4 ½ hours.
Regarding already implemented speed post hubs, it is decided to call for proposals from Chief PMGs seeking necessary further changes in the system such as opening of more intra circle hubs, change of administrative jurisdiction to RMS etc. The Federations shall also submit their circle wise proposals for improvement of the speed post hub system.
Regarding implementation of first class mail hubs (L1, L2 ) , the official side wanted the Staff side to agree to its implementation. They told that existing sorting work in the L2 offices will not be disturbed. Hence, there will not be much change in the existing set up. Barcoding, track and trace in the L1 offices will improve the efficiency and customer satisfaction.
The Staff side vehemently opposed its implementation as it will result in large scale closure of sorting offices and also dislocation of existing staff in addition to avoidable delay in transmission/ delivery of articles. There was no consensus arrived. The item will again be discussed in the meeting proposed to be held on 10.10.2011.
All Circle secretaries of RMS unions are requested to send their proposals regarding the changes required in the existing speed post hub system in their circle ie. Opening of additional intra circle hubs, change of jurisdiction to RMS etc to the respective General Secretaries and also to the Federations before October 5 repeat 5th October 2011.
PL TREAT THIS AS MOST URGENT AND IMPORTANT. Proposals will be finalized in the proposed 10th meeting. Proposals received after 5th October will not be considered.
