அன்புத் தோழர்களுக்கு வணக்கம்.நமது NFPE  சம்மேளனத்தின் கீழ் ஏற்கனவே அஞ்சல் மூன்று, அஞ்சல் நான்கு, RMS மூன்று, RMS  நான்கு, ACCOUNTS , ADMIN , SBCO , GDS  என்ற எட்டு சங்கங்கள் உள்ளன . 

புதிதாக அஞ்சல் , RMS  ஓய்வூதியர் சங்கம் கடந்த மாதம் வேலூரில்  தனது அகில இந்திய மாநாட்டை நடத்தியது உங்களுக்குத் தெரியும். மேலும் அகில இந்திய காசுவல் , பார்ட் டைம் , கண்டிஜென்ட் , CONTRACT WORKERS சங்கம் ஏற்படுத்தப்பட்டுள்ளது. 

அதன் முதல் தமிழ் மாநில மாநாடு   எதிர் வரும் 06.10.2014 அன்று சென்னை பல்லாவரத்தில் நடைபெற உள்ளது. எனவே தங்கள் பகுதியில் உள்ள அனைத்து காசுவல் , பார்ட் டைம் , கண்டிஜென்ட் , CONTRACT   ஊழியர்களையும் இதில் உறுப்பினராக்கிட , எதிர் வரும்  முதலாம் தமிழ் மாநாட்டில் கலந்துகொள்ளச் செய்ய வேண்டுகிறோம். மாநாடு வெற்றி பெற தமிழ் மாநில அஞ்சல் மூன்றாம் பிரிவின் சார்பில்  இதய பூர்வமான  வாழ்த்துக்களைத் தெரிவித்துக் கொள்கிறோம்.


TRANSFER POLICY - RULE 38 TRANSFERS UNDER COMMUNAL VACANCIES A BOTTLENECK - CHQ TAKEN UP THE CASE

விதி 38 இட மாறுதலின்  விதியை நிர்ணயிக்கப் போகும் புதிய TRANSFER  பாலிசி ?

சுழல் மாற்றல் மேலும்  சுழற்சியா ?

விதி 38 இன் கீழ் அளிக்கப் படும் இடமாறுதல்களில் , நடப்பு ஆண்டில் (2014) ஏற்கனவே ஜனவரியிலேயே காலியிடங்கள் அறிவிக்கப்பட்டு மே மாதத்தில் தேர்வு நடைபெற்றதால் , விண்ணப்பங்கள் பரிசீலனை செய்து அவை  உரியகோட்டங்களின் RESULTANT   காலியிடங்களாக  மாற்றப் படவில்லை. 

இதனால்  நடப்பு ஆண்டில்  விதி 38 இன் கீழான இட மாறுதல்கள்  தடைப் பட்டு உள்ளன. மேலும்  தற்போது DOPT  மற்றும் இலாக்காவால் அறிவிக்கப்பட்டுள்ள  புதிய TRANSFER  POLICY  காரணமாக , இனி வரும் ஆண்டுக்கான விதி 38 இன் கீழான  இட மாறுதல்களிலும் கூட மிகப் பெரும் பாதிப்பு ஏற்பட  உள்ளது.  

முதலாவதாக , TRANSFER  COMMITTEEதான்  RT  யை இறுதி செய்ய வேண்டும் என்று  எடுக்கப்பட்டுள்ள கொள்கை முடிவால் , இனி RT  மண்டல அதிகாரியால் இறுதி செய்யப்படும். இதன் மூலம்  கோட்ட அதிகாரிகளால்  அளிக்கப்படும் பரிந்துரைகளின் அடிப்படையிலேயே மண்டல அதிகாரிகள் இறுதி செய்வார்கள் என்பதே நடக்கும் நிகழ்வாக இருக்கும். ஏனெனில் அந்தந்த கோட்டத்தின் பிரத்தியேக பிரச்சினைகள் மண்டல அதிகாரிகளுக்கு தெரிய வாய்ப்பில்லை.  அவர்கள் கோட்ட அதிகாரியின் அறிக்கையையே சார்ந்திருக்க வேண்டும். 

மேலும் மண்டல அதிகாரி தலைமையிலான கமிட்டி  RT  உத்திரவுகளை இறுதி செய்வதால் , அதன் மீது மேல் முறையீடு செய்வதற்கு வாய்ப்பில்லாமல் போகும். அடுத்து நிலை உயர் அதிகாரியிடம் மேல் முறையீடு செய்யலாம்  என்று  வழிகாட்டுதல் அளிக்கப்பட்டால் கூட, அந்த மேல்முறையீடு  சாதாராண ஊழியர்களுக்கு எந்த அளவில் சாத்தியம் என்பது  கேள்விக்குறியே ?

இரண்டாவதாக,  RULE  38 இட மாறுதல்களில் ஏற்கனவே பல பிரச்சினைகளை நம் ஊழியர்கள்  சந்தித்து வருகிறார்கள். பெண் ஊழியர்கள் மிகவும் பாதிப்புக்கு உள்ளாகி உள்ளார்கள்.  

A)    இனி   நேரடி நியமனக் காலியிடங்களில் தான்  நேரடி நியமனம் பெற்ற எழுத்தர்  மாறுதல் பெற முடியும் என்பதும் ,  

B) PROMOTIVE  எழுத்தர் , விண்ணப்பிக்கும் கோட்டத்தில் அவருக்குண்டான  PROMOTIVE காலியிடங்களில் மட்டுமே இடமாறுதல் பெறமுடியும் என்பதும் ,

C)      MUTUAL TRANSFER  க்கும் இதே விதி தான்  பொருந்தும் என்பதும் , 

D)   அதுபோல எந்தெந்த COMMUNITY  யை சேர்ந்தவர் இட  மாறுதல் கேட்டு விண்ணப்பிக்கிறாரோ, அவர்களின்   COMMUNITY  அடிப்படையில்  காலியிடங்கள் , விண்ணப்பிக்கும் கோட்டத்தில் இருந்தால் மட்டுமே அவர்களுக்கு , அதுவும்  ORDER  OF  SENIORITY   அடிப்படையில்   மாறுதல் கிடைக்க வாய்ப்பு உள்ளது என்பதும் , 

E ) SENIOR REQUEST  இருந்தும்  JUNIOR  REQUEST ஆல்  OVERLOOK  செய்திட வாய்ப்பு ஏற்படும் என்பதும் ,

இடமாறுதல் பிரச்சினையில் பெரும்  பாதிப்பை ஏற்படுத்த உள்ளது. இது குறித்து  நம்முடைய தமிழ் மாநில அஞ்சல் மூன்று சங்கத்தால்   இந்தப் பிரச்சினை  அகில இந்திய சங்கத்திற்கு கொண்டு செல்லப்பட்டுள்ளது. 

தற்போது  நம் அகில இந்திய சங்கத்தின் பொதுச் செயலர் இந்தப் பிரச்சினையை  நம் இலாக்கா முதல்வரிடம் எடுத்துச் சென்றுள்ள போதிலும், 

இதில் மேலும் முயற்சி எடுத்து நாம் கூறியுள்ள அனைத்து பிரச்சினை களையும்  தீர்த்திட,  தற்போது   நம்முடைய  அஞ்சல் மூன்றின் பொறுப்புப் பொதுச் செயலர் தோழர். N .S . அவர்களிடம் நாம் வேண்டியுள்ளோம்.  இந்தப் பிரச்சினையை   எதிர்வரும் JCM  இலாக்கா குழு கூட்டத்திலும் எடுத்திட நம் மாநிலச் சங்கம் வேண்டியுள்ளது.

நம் பொதுச் செயலரின் தற்போதைய கடித நகலை கீழே பார்க்கவும்.

Govt to increase dearness allowance to 107 Percent-- Press News


Return to frontpage


“The average rate of retail inflation for industrial workers from July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014 works out to be 7.25 per cent. Thus the Central government will hike dearness allowance for it employees by 7 per cent,” an official said.
He said the Finance Ministry will now put a Cabinet proposal for approval of 7 per cent DA hike from July 1 this year as the revised Consumer Price Index-Industrial Workers data for June was released by Labour Ministry on Saturday.
With increase in DA, the pensioners will also gain as the benefit provided to them as dearness relief will be hiked to 107 per cent of basic pay.
The previous UPA government had increased DA to 100 per cent from 90 per cent with effect from January 1, 2014, on February 28 on the basis of agreed formula for revision of the allowance.
However, the central government employees’ union is not very enthused by the 7 per cent hike in the dearness allowance as their long pending demand of merger of DA with basic pay has not been given heed by 7th Pay Commission and the government.
“The erosion of value of wages is unbearable at 50 per cent dearness allowance. Now it will be 107 per cent. It is high time to merge DA with basic pay to provide relief to employees,” Confederation of Central Government Employees’ President KKN Kutty told PTI.
“We had summited our memorandum in this regard to 7th Pay Commission. They forwarded it to Central Government. We have apprised about the issue to the newly elected NDA government.
But no decision has been taken so far,” he said.
With merger of DA with basic pay, the salary and allowances paid in proportion of basic pay are increased. As per earlier practise DA was merged with basic pay once it breached 50 per cent mark. But the 6th Pay Commission has disallowed that.

Exclusivity of Central Government Health Scheme to be phased out

Exclusivity of Central Government Health Scheme to be phased out 
Health Minister ushers in new era of transparency in departmental working.

Beginning September 1, 2014 the doors of 20 Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) wellness centres in Delhi will be thrown open to senior citizens from among the public for free consultation.

Dr Harsh Vardhan, Union Health Minister, unveiled today a pilot project with wide ramifications for the future of public health care. There was wide criticism of the CGHS’ closed door policy towards people in need of medical help who were not family members of central government employees.

This is a pilot project for now. We will see how much demand accrues for the CGHS clinics and the ability of the clinics to handle demand from the general public before extending the service to more people in more cities,” Dr Harsh Vardhan said.

The service for senior citizens will be available on all working days between 1.30 pm and 3 pm. They will however not be given free medicines which is only for central employees.

On his first day in office, Dr Harsh Vardhan had announced that governance in all the outreach departments of the Ministry of Health would be made transparent. Within the first three months, the CGHS has completed a thorough review of its operations with the intention of identifying vulnerable spots which often OFFER scope for corruption.

The Minister has ordered that all information regarding medical claims that are pending for more than 30 days be put on the website, http://msotransparent.nic.in/cghsnew/index.asp. Over the years complaints had been piling up over the opaqueness of the process of reimbursing claims.

There were also complaints of CGHS doctors prescribing branded drugs beyond the approved list. Taking all factors into consideration, it has been decided that all beneficiaries and the public at large ought to know which the drugs are on the list and so they will be on view on the above-mentioned website, the Health Minister stated.

Dr Harsh Vardhan reiterated that henceforth only 1,447 generic and 622 branded medicines will be prescribed. Exceptions will be made only for patients suffering from cancer and similar diseases.

Additionally, it has been decided that CGHS beneficiaries will be provided with medicines for a maximum of one month. In case they are going abroad for extended periods, the medicines will be given for three months, he informed.

The CGHS doctors will be forbidden to prescribe investigations or implants that are not listed. A technical committee has been constituted to update the list of medicines, investigations, procedures, implants and other procedures of treatment.

Dr Harsh Vardhan said he is considering broad reforms in all wings of the ministry. “I encourage people, especially the media, to probe our affairs so that over time the employees realize the futility of trying to be corrupt. In addition, I will use information technology to prevent corruption at source.” 

Amendment to CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972 - Notification regarding

CENTRAL GOVT. HAS LAUNCHED ATTENDANCE WEB SITE TO TRACK THE EMPLOYEES

Soon, attendance of govt staff to be tracked online through attendance.gov.in


In what could be a revolutionary step towards monitoring and tracking the work of government officials, the NDA government has launched an “attendance website” to serve as a centralised database for all central government employees.

Though the website, attendance.gov.in, is still in the process of being developed, officials said it is expected to be modelled on the lines of similar websites of the Jharkhand government and the Department of Electronics and Information Technology.

To illustrate, the home page of the Jharkhand government’s attendance website gives the total number of employees present on the given day, along with graphical representations of “real-time attendance” and statistics on the percentage of people logging into office during different time slots, giving an idea of how many officials come to office during the designated timings. Further, a search for any REGISTERED employee yields complete details, along with the employee’s attendance/leave status.

Officials said the Centre’s website is likely to emulate most of these features and is expected to be as open to the public. “This level of open tracking takes transparency to another level, a key focus of this government,” said an official.

The Narendra Modi government had recently directed all central government offices to introduce Aadhaar-based biometric attendance systems. Officials said this website is the next step in that direction. The attendance record entered on the biometric devices in government offices will feed the data to this website, which will act as a centralised management information system (MIS) for attendance.

The database for all central government staff will be maintained centrally with a unique six digit ID provided for each employee, based on either the last six or first six digits of the Aadhaar number. Currently, the website has over 16,000 registered users, spread across 113 organisations. The maximum number of officials registered currently are from the Planning Commission. There are no active users or active devices yet.

For an organisation/ department to be registered, the nodal officers of that department will have to login to the website and create a master list of locations of their offices, designation of their offices and divisions/ units/ groups within their organisation. Following this, each employee can start REGISTERING online by submitting the relevant details along with Aadhaar numbers.

I.  RESOLUTION ADOPTED BY NFPE FEDERAL EXECUTIVE.
            The Federal Executive of NFPE records its full appreciation for the yeoman service rendered by Comrade M.Krishnan as the Secretary General of NFPE. The Federation has scaled new heights during his stewardship and the unity of Postal regular employees and Gramin Dak Sewaks entered into a new chapter under his leadership. The united movements of Postal Workers under the banner of Postal JCA as well as the independent struggles under the mighty National Federation of Postal Employees are further strengthened under his able leadership. He provided a militant, progressive leadership with farsightedness for the betterment of Postal Workers. It is  under his leadership that the NFPE claimed its historic vanguard role of leading the entirety of CG Employees under the platform of Confederation of CG Employees & Workers and it can be seen that the movement of central government employees has launched a powerful movement including strikes for the establishment of 7th CPC with Comrade M.Krishnan as its Secretary General. The integration of Postal and CG Employees with the entirety of Indian working class organisations in developing the path of united struggles against the neo-liberal policies of Government has further been cemented during his tenure. The leadership of confederation has come back to the Postal Organisation after a long period of 44 years and comrade Krishnan is leading the movement of CG employees in the path of struggle with firmness and it is noteworthy to mention that the unity of all JCM National Council organisations has reached its zenith with all coming together in championing the cause of three lakhs of Gramin Dak Sewaks and thousands of casual labourers in Postal and CG services due to his firm efforts. Ideological education of all cadres and employees through several All India and Regional Trade Union Camps under the banners of NFPE and Confederation; Concrete organisational steps for mobilizing the women employees of Postal Department as well as the Confederation level are some of the landmark achievements of Comrade Krishnan. The National Executive notes with happiness that all the affiliates of NFPE have always maintained a unified stand on all important activities of the Federation and this unity is due to the confidence created amongst all affiliates by the unifying leadership of Comrade Krishnan. The relinquishing of charge as the Secretary General of NFPE by him due to his superannuation from the Government Service is a huge loss to the movement but the Executive wishes to get his valuable advice and guidance to the Federation in the days to come. The National Executive places on record its unstinted gratitude to Comrade M.Krishnan for his able leadership to the historic organisation of NFPE not only as Secretary General but in numerous other capacities as well during his long service.  The Federal Executive further resolves that Com.M.Krishnan will continue to be in the Federal Executive of NFPE even after handing over charge, till the next Federal Council meeting to be held in May 2016.
II.          RESOLUTION ADOPTED BY CWC MEETING OF AIPEU GROUP - C (CHQ)
                   RESOLUTION ON THE SERVICES OF COM. M.KRISHNAN, GENEARL SECRETARY, AIPEU GROUP-C CHQ & SECRETARY GENERAL NFPE/CONFEDERATION
            The Central Working Committee of All India Postal Employees Union Group ‘C’ (CHQ) held in Ongole (Andhra Pradesh) from 22.8.2014 to 24.8.2014 unanimously appreciates the sincere, superb and outstanding services rendered by Com. M. Krishnan as General Secretary of AIPEU Group ‘C’ (CHQ) and Secretary General of NFPE & Confederation during his tenure and like to place on record our whole hearted compliments,greetings and commendations to him and also acknowledge and recognize him for his unparalleled and appreciated service, which definitely resulted in charming the organization to new heights and also in settling many of the long pending demands of the Postal employees, especially Postal Group ‘C’ staff.

Com. M. Krishnan’s contributions in enhancing the prestige and image of AIPEU Group ‘C’ and thereby NFPE as well as the Confederation, will be remembered forever. In order to strengthen the organization and also to enhance the organizing capacity of the rank and file leaders the P3 CHQ  & NFPE CHQ under the leadership of Com. M. Krishnan is maintaining constant communication with the general membership through website and also the Bhartiya Post and Postal Crusader monthly journals. The Trade Union classes and workshops organized by Com M.Krishnan, General Secretary for the NFPE and the Confederation has also contributed to a great extent in improving the quality of the organization. The need of the unity amidst the working class of all sections as well as Government employees, organized and unorganised workers, he preached and also practiced during his tenure upsurge him to the  standard of a great statesman and a living legend. It is only Com M. Krishnan, who spends more than 20 hours daily for the working class all along during his tenure.

Com. M.Krishnan is a vivacious, vibrant,meticulous hard working and fully committed leader and is always working for the upliftment and welfare of the Postal employees, especially most down-trodden three lakhs Gramin Dak Sewaks. He has also extended his helping hand to all affiliated unions of the NFPE as the Member and then Leader of the JCM (Departmental Council) Staff side. He is also the All India Secretary General of the Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers and is at the forefront in implementing all the programmes of the Confederation. The two days strike in February 2014 demanding the formation of the Seventh Pay Commission cut the ice and is one of the milestone in the history of the CG employees’ movement.

Com M.Krishnan has pioneered and crusaded his best in making the General Strikes conducted as per the call of Central Trade Unions and other Federations including NFPE against the anti-people and anti-worker policies of the Govt. a grand success in the Postal Sector. As the Secretary General, National Federation of Postal Employees he built the unity of all the Postal employees and conducted various trade union actions which have prevented the adverse effect of implementation of the new economic policy in the postal sector and to save the postal service as a public utility service. The mass recruitment to the extent of 30% and more in the postal is the major advancement of the Federation for which the skill and negotiating capacity of the Secretary  General NFPE Com M. Krishnan are fully exploited. The fight against closure of 9797 Postoffices and 300 RMS offices in the name of McKincey Consultancy’s recommendation, the campaign against the New Postal Policy and the move of the Govt. to privatise postal services by granting licence to Courier Services, the Cadre Restructuring agreement etc are examples of his uncompromising stand, hard-bargaing and negotiating skill. His capacity to make inspiring and educative speeches and also taking class are worth emulating.

This Central Working Committee of this Union, while saluting Com. M. Krishnan for his devoted and dedicated service to the Central Govt. Employees and Postal employees, especially to the CHQ of AIPEU Group ‘C’ hereby resolved to utilize the valuable and experienced services of Com. M. Krishnan in the AIPEU Group ‘C’ (CHQ) till the next All India Conference to be held in June 2015.
III.  E.MAIL RECEIVED FROM SHRI.D.THEAGARAJAN, SG, FNPO.
In regard to the services rendered by Sri M.Krishnan to the employees, I am unable to find words to express my appreciation towards him. In the last few years my relationship with him is very cordial and it became useful to the Postal employees.  His manner of approaching official side with the issues of staff is bold as well as of positive nature .
So far I do not find negative attitude in him during the negotiation with official side. The retirement of Shri  M.Krishnan from the Department is a great loss to the Postal employees in particular and  central government employees  in general .
In fine , I feel that a good friend of mine is retiring from the service.. I pray to  the Almighty to shower blessings on him and his family members to give happiness and prosperity .
