To,
Shri P.K. Bisoi,
Secretary,
Department of Posts
Dak Bhawan , New Delhi – 110 001.

Sub: Request for causing payment of salary and pension on 30th January due   
 to two-day strike of Banks – regarding.
  Sir,
As we learn that the talks on the wage agreement has failed between the Indian Banks Association and the United Forum of Bank Unions, a two-days strike on 31st January and 1st February has been given by various unions of Banking Sector.  Incidentally, the 2nd February being a Sunday, the Employees and the Pensioners drawing salary or pension from different banks will be in a very difficult situation as they could draw their salary/pension only on 3rd February. We would like the Department to appreciate the fact that this will cause enormous strain on the employees and pensioners.

 The National Federation of Postal Employees would like to seek your personal intervention so that necessary orders may be caused to ensure payment on 30th January itself even though the last working day of the month falls on 31st January. We are aware that the time at the disposal of the Department is very short but the Staff and Pensioners would be extremely grateful for a timely action in this regard.

Thanking you,

With regards,
Yours sincerely,

Sub: Arbitrary enhancement of security amount to the GDS – Regarding.

 Ref : Directorate Letter No. 17-18/2018 GDS  Dated 14.01.2020.

Sir,
            Apropos reference, it is constrained to note that the security amount for the GDS has been enhanced to the extent of Rs.1,00,000/-( One lakh only) to the BPM & ABPM from the existing amount of Rs.25000/- & Rs.10000/- respectively arbitrarily and causing injustice to the GDS officials.

            The increase in four folds to the BPM and ten times to the ABPMS is causing a concern. The co- operative societies are charging the premium amount heavily and as per the current rates the premium will fetch to the extent of Rs.10000/- which is unbearable by the GDS.

            The maximum security amount shall not exceed the minimum TRCA of the individual GDS and the enhancement of the premium amount is causing a concern.

            It is therefore requested to kindly reconsider and reduce the enhancement of the security amount to the barest minimum.

            A line in reply about the action taken is highly solicited.

                                                                                                   Yours Sincerely,

SUPREME COURT OF INDIA - CA 1567 OF 2017 REGARDING PWD CAN BE GIVEN RESERVATION IN PROMOTION       CLICK HERE  for copy of Judgement (16 pages)
********************
RESERVATION IN PROMOTION FOR PERSONS WITH DISABILITY (PWDS) NOT PROHIBITED: SC UPHOLDS 2-JUDGE BENCH DECISION [READ JUDGMENT]

The Supreme Court has observed that the rule of no reservation in promotions as laid down in Indra Sawhney has no application to Persons With Disability (PWD).

A three judge bench headed by Justice Rohinton Fali Nariman upheld a two judge bench view that the basis for providing reservation for PWD is physical disability and not any of the criteria forbidden under Article 16(1).

The bench, also comprising of Justices Aniruddha Bose and V. Ramasubramanian, was considering a reference which doubted a view taken in Rajiv Kumar Gupta & Others v. Union of India & Others – (2016) 6 SCALE 417. The bench in Rajiv Gupta, in the context of Persons with Disabilities (Equal Opportunities Protection of Rights and Full Participation) Act, 1995 had noted that there is no prohibition against reservation in promotion for Persons With Disabilities. The bench in Rajiv Gupta said that the principle in Indra Sawhney & Others v. Union of India & Others – (1992) Supp. 3 SCC 215 against reservation in promotions will not extended to PWDs.

But this view was doubted by a division bench in 2017, observing that Persons With Disabilities required preferntial treatment but not reservation in promotion. On that premise, the bench referred the decision in Rajiv Kumar Gupta to larger bench.

Upholding the view in Rajiv Kumar Gupta, the bench held thus:

"we are of the view that the judgment of this Court cannot be faulted when it stated that Indra Sawhney dealt with a different problem and, therefore, cannot be followed. We may also note that review petitions were filed and have since been dismissed against both the 2013 and 2016 judgments. Consequently, the reference stands answered by stating that the 2013 judgment as clarified in National Federation of the Blind vs. Sanjay Kothari, Secy. Deptt. of Personnel and Training, 2015 (9) Scale 611 and the judgment in Rajeev Kumar Gupta & Others v. Union of India & Others – (2016) 13 SCC 153 case will bind the Union and the State Governments and must be strictly followed notwithstanding the Office Memorandum dated 29.12.2 in particular."

In Rajeev Kumar Gupta, it was observed thus:

The principle laid down in Indra Sawhney is applicable only when the State seeks to give preferential treatment in the matter of employment under the State to certain classes of citizens identified to be a backward class. Article 16(4) does not disable the State from providing differential treatment.  However, for creating such preferential treatment under law, consistent with the mandate of Article 16(1), the State cannot choose any one of the factors such as caste, religion, etc. mentioned in Article 16(1) as the basis.

The basis for providing reservation for PWD is physical disability and not any of the criteria forbidden under Article 16(1). Therefore, the rule of no reservation in promotions as laid down in Indra Sawhney has clearly and normatively no application to PWD.
