Sub: - Inclusion of Gramin Dak Sevaks of Department of Posts under the purview of the proposed Seventh Pay Commission – regarding.
With due respect and regards, we put forth the following for your kind consideration and favourable decision please.
In the Department of Posts, the 50% of the total work force are called as Gramin Dak Sevaks and they are continuously being discriminated by separate committees formed for the consideration of their wages and service conditions.
The Supreme Court of India declared that these Gramin Dak Sevaks are holder of civil posts and it is a well settled law. Despite the judgment, the same civil servant status has not been accorded yet to them except a part in case of disciplinary proceedings.
The Fourth Central Pay Commission categorically emphasized that, the GDS issues shall be brought under the purview of Pay Commissions. But still separate committees are constituted.
The last committee constituted at the time of Sixth Central Pay Commission caused clear injustice to these employees and they are deprived all the service benefits at par with civil servants even though the law of the land declared and settled them as the holder of the civil posts.
Under these circumstances, we most humbly request the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India to consider our request and cause orders to include the GDS of the Department of Posts under the terms of reference of the Seventh Central Pay Commission.
With profound regards,
(M. Krishnan) (D. Theagarajan)
