Sub: -   Ordering of delivery of e-tail articles booked at Naaptol and Amazon etc. on all Sundays and all Religious Holidays and even at late evenings in the festive season till Jan. 2017 and further – Reg.

Ref: -   Dte. Letter No. 30-22/2016-D dt. 22.09.2016, 29.09.2016 and 30.09.2016.

Your kind attention is drawn towards Directorate letter referred above on the above subject.

            As per the order of the Dte. Dt. 30.09.2016 in para (g), arrangements for delivery of parcels during the festival season should be made in offices, on all Sundays and Holidays and in late evenings, in order to ensure that e-commerce parcels, do not lie undelivered and clog the delivery channel.

            Top to bottom control room is arranged to monitor and to ensure 100% delivery of the e-tail articles booked at Naaptol, Amazon and with various e-commerce companies on hour to hour basis including on all the Sundays and Religious Holidays till January 2017, by engaging the existing staff without any rest, in the name of compensatory off, by which the other working staff have to share their work in addition on week days. The booking projection shown in the annexure of the Dt. Letter will show that lakhs of such online booked parcels have to be delivered within the festive season without any delay. Thus our staff are squeezed like bonded labourers in the name of improving e-commerce business. This was already carried out on Pooja and Muharram Holidays, during the week.

            The hard earned week-end Sundays and Religious Holidays are now snatched and our existing Staff are threatened to work in 24x7 and 3x8 environment, without any additional establishment and without any extended facilities as available in the similarly placed Departments.

            Hence, your immediate intervention is highly solicited, so as to cancel the orders and to ensure the week-end Sundays and religious holidays, a reality to the working staff.

With regards

Yours faithfully,

(R. N. Parashar)

Secretary General.
