Circular dated – 10.04.2017
NATIONWIDE DAY LONG MASS DHARNA ON 27.04.2017
IN FRONT OF ALL DIVISIONAL/REGIONAL/CIRCLE OFFICES
DEMANDING IMPLEMENTATION OF FAVOURABLE RECOMMENDATIONS OF KAMALESH CHANDRA COMMITTEE REPORT ON GRAMIN DAK SEVAKS
1) All Branch/Divisional/Circle Secretaries of all affiliated unions/Associations of NFPE

3) All CHQ office bearers of NFPE & AIPEU – GDS
As you are aware that the Kamalesh Chandra Committee on GDS has submitted its report to Government on 24.11.2016. As Department delayed the publishing of the report, NFPE & AIPEU-GDS declared indefinite hunger fast in front of Directorate (Dak Bhawan) demanding immediate publishing of the report. After that the Department published the report on 15th January 2017. Due to elections in four state Assemblies, the election commission has given instructions to the Department that no further action on the report should be taken. Thus only after election, the Departmental Constituted an implementation Committee headed by Member (Technology) holding additional charge of Member (Personnel) Postal Services Board. The proposal of the implementation Committee is now being examined by the Joint Secretary & Financial Advisor (JS & FA) of the Postal Board. After JS & FA’s approval the proposal is to be approved by Secretary, Departmental of Posts. Then the file is to be submitted to the Minister, Communication for approval. Only after the approval of the Minister, Communications, the file will be submitted to Department of personnel & Training for approval and then the proposed is to be submitted to Finance Ministry and Law Ministry for approval. After completing all these process only the final proposal will be submitted to Cabinet for approval.
This it can be seen that much delay is taking place in implementation of the favourbale recommendations of the GDS Committee Report. Eventhough Secretary, Department of Posts has informed the leaders of NFPE & AIPEU-GDS that Postal Board will take speedy action for implementation, many hurdles including Finance Ministry’s approval are to be crossed yet.
NFPE & AIPEU-GDS has taken serious note of the situation and has decided to organize agitational programmes demanding immediate implementation of the favourable recommendations of the Kamalesh Chandra Committee report. As, First phase of the agitation it is decided to organize nationwide mass dharna in front of all Divisional/Regional/Circle offices on 27th April 2017.
All Branch/Divisional/Circle Secretaries of NFPE affiliated Unions/Associations and AIPEU-GDS are requested to mobilise and organize mass dharna on 27.04.2017.
Please treat it as most urgent/important.
