Subject : Issue of revised Recruitment Rules of PS Gr. B Cadre and reduce share of General Line officials from 6% to 3%…reg

Respected Madam,
Kindly refer to this Association’s letter of even number dated 15/7/2013, 19/11/2013, 6/1/2014, 17/4/2014 and 16/5/2014 regarding finalization of Recruitment Rules of PS Gr. B cadre and reduction the share of General Line officials from 6% to 3% in LDCE for the promotion to the cadre of PS Gr. B. But till date nothing is heard from Directorate.

This Association indeed to bring to your kind notice that, PS Gr. B Recruitment Rules are not revised since years together and as per the clause 3.1.5 of Department of Personnel and Training OM No. AB-14017/48/2010-Estt (RR) dated 31st December 2010 “The Recruitment Rules should be reviewed once in 5 years with a view to effecting such changes as are necessary to bring them in conformity with the changed position, including additions to or reduction in the strength of the lower and higher level posts”. This Association has already submitted the detailed proposal under letter dated 4/7/2011 regarding distribution of quota for PS Gr. B Examination and Sr. Postmaster Examination. Due to non-settlement of these issues, Department has not conducted the LDCE for the promotion to the cadre of PS Gr. B for the year 2013 and as well for the year 2014. Sr. Postmaster’s Examination also not held from 2010 onwards.

In view of the above, it is requested to kindly finalize the RRs of PS Gr. B cadre and reduce the share of General Line officials in LDCE for the promotion to the cadre of PS Gr. B at the earliest and also communicate the vacancy position well in advance to DE Division to hold the examination separately for the year 2013 and 2014.
Yours sincerely,

CHQ News:-GS writes to Secretary (Posts) i/c/w grant of honorarium to part time IO/PO for conducting inquires

No. GS/AIAIASP/GDS-Hon/2013 dated : 21/6/2014

To,
Ms Kavery Banerjee,
Secretary (Posts),
Department of Posts,
Dak Bhawan, Sansad Marg,
New Delhi 110 001.

Sub: Grant of honorarium to part time Inquiry Officers/ Presenting Officers for conducting inquiries under Rule-10 of GDS (Conduct and Engagement) Rules, 2011 and revision of financial powers delegated to CPMG for sanction of the Honorarium.

Ref: Directorate memo No C-32016/03/2005-VP dated 23.08.2005.

Respected Madam,
We would like to invite your kind attention to this Association’s letter of even number dated 22/6/2013 followed by reminders dated 13/9/2013 and 11/11/2013, 1/2/2014 and 25/4/2014 whereby it was brought to the notice that, Directorate vide memo No 32016/12/2011-VP dated 04.07.2011 on the basis of notification issued by DOP&T has revised honorarium rates for Inquiry Officers/ Presenting Officers engaged for conducting departmental enquiries which was further revised on 8.1.2013. Under the existing structure, minimum Rs 5000/- and Maximum 10000/- are required to be sanctioned as honorarium if the enquiry is completed within stipulated time frame. But no such revision whatsoever has been made for IO/PO for conducting GDS inquiries, perhaps this was not part of DOP&T memo as no such cadre exists in any other department except DOP.

Although the responsibilities of IO/PO are predefined and similar in nature both for Departmental and GDS employees, yet the honorarium rate is not in parity as is apparent from the below noted table, that also needs upward revision at par with departmental inquiries.

Details

GDS inquiries
Departmental inquiries
w.e.f.23.08.2005
w.e.f. 04.07.2011
w.e.f. 31.07.2012
Inquiry Officer (IO) Part time
Minimum Rs 400/-
Maximum Rs 1600/-
Minimum Rs 1500/-
Maximum Rs 3000/-
Minimum Rs 5000/-
Maximum Rs 10000/-
Presenting Officer (PO) Part time
Minimum Rs 250/-
Maximum Rs 500/-
Minimum Rs 750/-
Maximum Rs 1500/-
Minimum Rs 5000/-
Maximum Rs 10000/-
Furthermore, the annual ceiling of Rs 4000/- per IO/PO per year bestowed to the Head of the Circle since long is still in vogue and no action to revise this limit has been taken concomitantly leaving aside benefit granted above. However, Secretary (Posts) has the power to sanction honorarium up to Rs 5000/-, means all the cases will have to be referred to Directorate for sanction. In such cases, either the beneficiary will be deprived of his/her right or will have to wait for long to get the desired relief.

It is further bring to your kind notice that the minimum rate of honorarium have already been revised for departmental inquiries and the FR 46 B also stood amended (vide MOF, DOE I.CU.O.No.4.2/5/2008-IC dated 29.01.2009). The issue in question was discussed at length with your predecessor and OSD to Secretary (Posts) in the informal meeting held on 23/9/2013. During the course of dialogue, both the officers apprehending the position, assured that Department will re-look into the matter and shall accordingly convey the approval, but till date nothing is heard from Directorate despite issue of series of reminders.

It is therefore once again requested to put on place orders to resolve this vital issue at the earliest.

Yours sincerely,

Clarification regarding purchase of Air Tickets from Authorized Travel Agents for the purpose of LTC - DoPT Orders June 2014

 

F.No. 31011/4/2014-Estt (A.IV)
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions
Department of Personnel and Training
North Block, New Delhi-110 001
Dated: 19th June, 2014
OFFICE MEMORANDUM
 
Subject: - Clarification regarding purchase of Air Tickets from Authorized Travel Agents for the purpose of LTC.
 

The undersigned is directed to refer to the instructions issued from time to time on the above noted subject and say that the Government employees are required to book their air tickets directly from the airlines (Booking counters, website of airlines) or by utilizing the service of Authorized Travel Agents viz. 'M/s Balmer Lawrie & Company'. 'M/s Ashok Travels & Tour' and 'IRCTC' (to the extent IRCTC is authorized as per DoPT O.M. No.31011/6/2002-Estt.(A) dated 02.12.2009) while undertaking LTC journey(s).

2. In a number of cases, it has been noticed that the aforesaid instructions are not being followed and as a result various Ministries/Departments continue to make references to DoPT seeking relaxation of the conditions for one reason or the other. The most common reasons given by the employees are unawareness of the rules and non-availability of Authorized Travel Agents viz. M/s Ashok Travels, M/s Balmer Lawrie & Company at places where the tickets have been booked from. Even in such cases, the option of booking directly from the airlines through their website is available. In no case is the booking of tickets through any other agency is permissible.
3. All the Ministries/Departments of Government of India are advised to ensure that their employees are made aware of the above mentioned guidelines to avoid breach of any of the LTC rules.

4. This issues with the approval of Joint Secretary(E).

To view the copy of rejoinder to be filed by Association at Hon'ble CAT Ernakulam Bench, please CLICK HERE.

Demand for 50% DA Merger presented to the new government

It looks as if this time all the Central Government Employees Federations are seriously committed to getting 50% Dearness Allowance added to their basic pay!
All the CG employees federations have strongly made this demand to the newly formed Government at the Centre. They have all explained the reasons and submitted the justification, why they have made this demand and have requested that it be implemented.
The demand was first put forth in the middle of last year. It was hoped that the demand would be implemented before the general elections. Everybody expected an announcement in this regard at the end of the last cabinet meeting that was held on February 28, 2014. The disappointment they felt wouldn’t be easy to forget.

In order to renew this demand and present it to the newly formed government, all the federations have presented memorandums. Mr. Shiva Gopal Mishra, Secretary of National Council JCM Staff Side, has sent a detailed letter to the Government explaining this demand.

One will have to wait and watch if the newly formed government, under the leadership of Modi, accepts this demand of more than 50 lakh employees.
