Government staff can now visit Nepal, Sri Lanka, Maldives on LTC


The civil aviation ministry has given its nod to a proposal to provide leave travel concession for government employees to Nepal, Bhutan, Maldives and Sri Lanka to boost tourism in the region.
A senior official in the ministry confirming the development said, “The move is intended to boost tourism within SAARC (South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation) countries. Pakistan and Bangladesh has been left out for now because of security issues.”
The approval from the ministry of civil aviation was required so that the LTC can be availed of on national carrier Air India while flying to these countries.
Interestingly, latest available official data shows that there has been a decline in foreign tourist arrivals from Nepal, Bhutan, Maldives and Sri Lanka in 2013.
SriLanka does feature among the top five countries accounting for 3.77 per cent of foreign tourist arrivals in India. However, tourist arrivals from Sri Lanka to India dropped by 11 per cent in 2013.
Similarly, arrivals from Nepal declined by 9 per cent, Bhutan by 1 per cent. Foreign tourist arrivals from Maldives went down by 10 per cent in the same period.
The LTC scheme extended to the four identified countries will be designed akin to those for travel to Jammu & Kashmir and to the North-East.
The measure, government official say, will enhance tourism and subsequently economic development in the South Asian region.
“There are around two million government employees. With the extension of the LTC scheme there is bound to be greater tourist inflow and outflow with these countries”, added the official.
In the 18th SAARC Summit held in Nepal in November last year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had emphasised the need for enhancing connectivity in the region, saying it was easier to travel to Bangkok and Singapore than to countries in the neighbourhood.
There is a significant population of Buddhists in the SAARC region and India has lately being making attempts to boost tourism such places of religious significance like Bodh Gaya, Sarnath and Kapilavastu.
At the summit, Modi had in fact flagged off a bus service connecting Kathmandu with New Delhi.
BOOST FOR REGIONAL TOURISM
* DUE TO security issues, Pakistan and Bangladesh have been excluded from the scheme
* THE NOD from the civil aviation ministry is required for the proposal so that employees can avail the LTC scheme when flying on Air India to these countries
* THE SCHEME will be similar to that for travel to Jammu & Kashmir and to the North-East

Task Force proposes to divide India Post into five biz verticals
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to review a report on the revival of India Post soon.
Official sources said that Minister for Communications and Information Technology Ravi Shankar Prasad has approved the task force report and will submit it to the prime minister for a review.
The task force had submitted its report to Prasad in December, recommending division of India Post into five verticals, including one each for banking, insurance and e-commerce, with India Post being the holding company.
“The minister is expected to meet the prime minister on Wednesday for an in-principle approval. The task force has highlighted priority areas, which would give a fillip to our postal department,” an official told BusinessLine.
The Centre is also investing ₹5,000 crore for IT modernisation in India Post.
He said priority tasks include providing banking and insurance services to the public and making e-commerce companies such as Amazon, Flipkart and Snapdeal use India Post’s services.
“The main purpose is to utilise the network in line with the Prime Minister’s vision of reaching rural areas for financial services through innovation and digital connectivity instead of mere postal services,” the official added.
The task force, chaired by former Cabinet Secretary TSR Subramanian, was set up by the Prime Minister last year.
The idea was to leverage India Post’s wide reach across India.
Snapdeal has already partnered with India Post to work on bringing thousands of weavers and artisans from Varanasi on its website. The online company has launched a pilot with India Post to set up facilitation desks at Varanasi post offices to enable local weavers to sell their products on its platform.


SAVE BSNL; SAVE POSTAL & SAVE INDIA.

0 comments



The forum of BSNL unions and Associations of Non-Executives and executives has decided programme of agitations  stage by stage from Jan 2015 –(1) 3 days Dharna at all District & Circle level from 6th Jan 2015 to 08th January 2015 (2) Parliament March of BSNL workers on 25th Feb 2015 (3) Indefinite  Strike from 17th March 2015. It is also decided to submit a memorandum signed by more than one Crore people and employees to the Prime Minister on the day of Parliament March with demands for taking necessary measures for revival  of BSNL. A massive “ Save BSNL Campaign” is also being organized. BSNL Union / Associations are seeking our full support and solidarity in the Save BSNL Campaign and the programmes of action. Yes, it is also being our responsibility to save BSNL along with Postal as a citizen of India & as a Central Govt.  Employees. P&T Services in India have a long history spanning more than one and half century (1851), Since 1851 it is providing communications in all parts of country along with Postal. Till 1985 It was the Posts & Telegraph combined to serve the nation by providing telegraph and telephone services. In both services new technologies were introduced one after another which not only improved  the services, but made it faster and faster, which was the requirement of the Govt. and the People.  In 1985 breaking  the connection of Postal Department of telecommunication was formed.  After 1990, The new liberalization  policy  of the  Central Govt. had its affect  on the telecom services also – In 1994-95 Private companies were given license for providing mobile services In 2000 by formation of VSNL/MTNL/BSNL. It was corporatized. Corporatization was the first step towards privatization, as already seen in the  case of VSNL which has been handed over to TATA’s and now a Private Company, TATA Communications. BSNL & MTNL are still now PSU fully owned by the Central Government, while MTNL provided service in Delhi & Mumbai, BSNL providing Telecom  Services all over India.
                Now what is wrong with BSNL? Why it is under loss? Why it is facing difficulty of Services?. It is very easy  to find out answer     (1) while  at the time of formation. BSNL was having about forty thousand crores  cash balance  at its disposal, this was not allowed to use effectively for expansion and development (2) BSNL is providing maximum Telecom Services in rural area with huge losses and risk. Each land line provided and maintained will result loss to company (3) at the time of corporatization Govt. assured for financial support was not fulfilled but it was extended to Private Telecom companies... (4) While BSNL working under the directions of Govt. and implementing the policy decisions of Govt. for universal service and work for security  of the country and  people , How can  it equated with the private company to pay license  fee ? Instead of giving priority to its own  company “BSNL Govt. have been helping and favouing the private Tellecoms i.e. Private companies were given mobile license in 1994-95 while BSNL got license after six years in 2002- when the  3G BWA spectrum was allotted BSNL was compelled to shell out 18500 crore for private company. It was 5000  to 7000 crore only  for the same & BSNL was allotted spectrum of lesser standard. While Govt. preaches about  equal field why it is discriminated against BSNL. In the race of competition to provide better and  efficient  services for growth and expansion. The procurement of necessary equipment is important. The latest technology should be used when and where latest innovation have taken place. Even BSNL is having biggest market share in the land line and Brand Bond Services. It is not enough to give service in fast growing mobile upto the  customers’ the delight. Because of all these reasons BSNL is under loss for the last four years. Now BSNL unions took the initiatives in fighting against the anti-BSNL policies of the Govt. for an efficient management and for active participation of the workers.
                Comrades, While task force report in our door step to corporatize the Postal. Let us learn a lesson from BSNL and think about our future. To day BSNL Tomorrow may Postal?
                Kindly cooperate  and support with BSNL struggle at all levels without fail. Let us  unitedly give a slogan  ‘SAVE POSTAL -  SAVE BSNL FOR PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY AND SECRUITY AND SOVEREIGNTY OF  OUR COUNTRY.

Wednesday, 31 December 2014 0 comments


PREPARE FOR INDEFINITE POSTAL STRIKE FROM 2015 MAY 6 th


GRAMIN DAK SEVAKS DO NOT WANT SEPEREATE GDS COMMITTEE

SEPERATE COMMITTEE (WHETHER JUDICIAL OR BUREAUCRATIC) 
IS A WASTE AND FARCE.

Ø    2.76 lakhs GDS do not want a separate GDS Committee.
Ø    2.76 lakhs GDS want inclusion of GDS in the 7th CPC.
Ø    NFPE & AIPEU-GDS(NFPE) demanding inclusion of GDS in 7th CPC.
Ø    FNPO & NUGDS demanding inclusion of GDS in 7th CPC.
Ø    Confederation of Central Govt. Employees & Workers demanding inclusion of GDS in 7th CPC.
Ø    JCM National Council (Staff side) organisations including Railway & Defense Federations demanding inclusion of GDS in 7th CPC.
BUT RECOGNISED GDS UNION OF SHRI.MAHADEVAIAH IS DEMANDING SEPARTE COMMITTEE FOR GDS
*      Hon’ble Supreme Court stated that GDS are Civil Servants and they are Central Govt. Employees.
*      Justice Singhal, Chairman 4th PC stated GDS are Civil Servants and they are Central Govt. Employees.
*      Justice Charanjit Jalwar stated that GDS are Civil Servants and they are Central Govt. Employees.
*      Talwar Committee recommended to the Govt. that GDS should be included in Pay Commission and no separate committee should be appointed in future.
*      Govt. appointed 7th Pay Commission for Central Govt. Employees.
*      NFPE & AIPEU-GDS (NFPE) says GDS are part of Central Govt. Employees and they should be included in 7th CPC itself.
*      Confederation of Central Govt. Employees & Workers says that GDS are part of Central Govt. Employees and they should be incuded in 7th CPC itself.
*      JCM National Council (staff side) orgisastions including Railway & Defence Federations says GDS are part of Central Govt. Employees and they should be included in 7th CPC itself.
*      BUT RECOGNISED GDS UNION OF SHRI. MAHADEVAIAH ACCEPTED THE GOVT. STAND THAT GDS ARE NOT PART OF CENTRAL GOVT. EMPLOYEES AND HENCE HE IS DEMANDING SEPERATE COMMITTEE FOR GDS.  HE DON’T WANT GDS TO BE INCLUDED IN 7TH CPC.  HIS MAIN DEMAND IN THE CHARTER OF DEMANDS IS SEPERATE COMMITTEE FOR GDS .
*      NFPE & AIPEU-GDS (NFPE) declared joint indefinite strike under the banner of JCA from 2015 May 6th for inclusion of GDS in 7th CPC.
*      FNPO & NUGDS also declared joint indefinite strike under the banner of JCA from 2015 May 6th for inclusion of GDS in 7th CPC.
&     Confederation, Railways & Defence Federations organised joint National Convention of entire JCM staff side orgnisations and decided to organise massive Parliament March in April 2015 to declare indefinite strike of entire Central Govt. Employees.  Inclusion of GDS in 7th CPC is included in the charter of demands as number one demand.
RECOGNISED GDS UNION OF SHRI MAHADEVAIAH DON’T WANT JOINT STRIKE OF GDS & REGULAR EMPLOYEES.  HE ALWAYS DECLARES FRAGMENTED STRIKE TO TORPEDO THE UNITY OF GDS AND REGULAR EMPLOYEES.  HE IS DESPERATELY TRYING TO RETAIN HIS CONTROL OVER GDS.  HE HAS WRITTEN TO THE GOVT. NOT TO ALLOW NFPE & FNPO TO DISCUSS GDS ISSUES.  GOVT. ALSO WANTS TO DIVIDE GDS AND REGULAR EMPLOYEES SO THAT THEY CAN EASILY DENY THE LEGITIMATE DEMANDS OF THE GDS INCLUDING CIVIL SERVANT STATUS AND ALL BENEFITS OF REGULAR EMPLOYEES.
LET US ORGANISE JOINT INDEFINITE STRIKE OF FIVE LAKHS GDS & REGULAR EMPLOYEES FROM 2015 MAY 6TH UNDER THE BANNER OF POSTAL JOINT COUNCIL OF ACTION (NFPE, FNPO, AIPEU-GDS (NFPE) & NUGDS) DEMANDING INCLUSION OF GDS IN 7TH CPC & GRANT OF ALL BENEFITS OF REGULAR EMPLOYEES TO GDS ALSO.
RECOGNISED GDS UNION OF MAHADEVAIAH IS AGAINST FILING CASE IN SUPREME COURT  for grant of Civil Servant status and all benefits of regular employees to GDS.  NFPE & AIPEU-GDS (NFPE) has filed a Writ Petition in Supreme Court and after the preliminary hearing Supreme Court transferred the case to Delhi High Court.  The next hearing of the case in Delhi High Court is on 4th February, 2015.
But Shri. Mahadevaiah had filed a case in the Karnataka High Court for his own benefit requesting to grant Foreign Service benefits to him.  (Writ Petition No.24106/2005 (S.CAT).  
When he has filed Writ Petition in High Court for his own benefit it is perfectly alright, but when NFPE & AIPEU-GDS (NFPE) filed case in Supreme Court for the benefit of 2.76 lakhs GDS he is ridiculing it and opposing it.

P.PANDURANGA RAO                                                          R.N.PARASHAR
General Secretary.                                                                  Secretary General,
AIPEU-GDS(NFPE)                                                                         NFPE.


(NB:  Shri.Mahadevaiah has published in December 2014 a circular in his website in which again he has used filthy and unparliamentary language against the NFPE leadership.  He has called the leadership of NFPE as “Cowards” “impotent” and “liars”.  NFPE & AIPEU-GDS (NFPE) don’t want to stoop to the level of Shri. Mahadevaiah by replying him using such indecent and low-level third-rate language in our writeups).

GDS COURT CASE – PRESENT POSITION.

Sunday, 14 December 2014 0 comments

1.  NFPE & AIPEU – GDS (NFPE) has filed a Writ Petition in the Supreme Court praying to (1) give direction to the Government to implement the 1977 Judgment of the Supreme Court to treat Gramin Dak Sevaks as Civil Servants and grant all benefits of regular employees (2) to give direction to the Government to include Gramin Dak Sewaks under the purview of 7th Central Pay Commission and (3) to quash to the Gramin Dak Sewaks (Conduct and Engagement) Rules 2011. Senior Advocate Mr. Justice (Retired) M. R. Calla and Advocate Uday Gupta appeared in Supreme Court on behalf of NFPE & AIPEU – GDS (NFPE).


2.   Hon’ble Supreme Court after hearing the argument in Writ Petition ordered to transfer the case to Delhi High Court for a decision after hearing the Government of India, Department of Posts. In the Delhi High Court the Writ Petition No. 168 of 2014 came up for hearing on 19.09.2014. The Department of Posts filed its counter affidavit. High Court adjourned the case to 04.02.2015 granting time for filing rejoinder reply statement.

3.  In the counter affidavit filed by Department of Posts it is stated that three Writ Petitions filed by some Gramin Dak Sewaks (GDS) are pending in the Supreme Court. When we verified with the Supreme Court records it is learnt that all the three Writ Petitions filed by some GDS in the Supreme Court are listed for final hearing on 02.12.2014 (Writ Petition No. 17 of 2009, WP No. 468 of 2009 and WP No. 37 of 2011). Hence NFPE decided to implead in the above Writ Petitions pending in the Supreme Court and our Impleadment Petition I. A. No. 1 in WP (C) No. 17 of 2009 was also filed in the Supreme Court.

4. On 02.12.2014, the three Writ Petitions filed by some GDs came up for hearing. After hearing the Advocate who filed the three Writ Petitions on behalf of some GDS, the court passed the following orders on 02.12.2014.

“It is submitted by Mr. Mukesh K. Giri, Learned Counsel appearing for the Petitioners that Union of India has framed a set of rules called Department of Posts Multi-Tasking Staff Recruitment Rules 2010, by which the Department of Posts (Group ‘D’ Posts) Recruitment Rules 2002 has been superseded. He has drawn our attention that part of the Rules which states as follows:
“Gramin Dak Sewaks are holders of Civil Posts but they are outside the regular civil service due to which their appointment will be by direct recruitment”.

It is submitted by him (Advocate who filed the three Writ Petitions on behalf of some GDS) that in view of the aforesaid declaration under the Rules, the petitioners can agitate their other grievances before the Central Administrative Tribunal”.

5.  After hearing the above submission of the Advocate who filed the three Writ Petitions on behalf of some GDS, the Supreme court adjourned the case to 09.12.2014 to hear the arguments of our Advocate in the Impleadment Petitions IA No. 1 filed by NFPE in WP (C) of 17 of 2009. On 09.12.2014, Mr. Justice (Retd.) M. R. Calla, Senior Advocate, Appeared and argued the case on behalf of NFPE. Our Advocate argued for a direction to the Government to grant Civil Servant status and all benefits of Civil Servants to the Gramin Dak Sewaks. The Advocate who filed the Writ Petition has submitted that GDS can agitate their other grievances before the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT). Finally the Supreme Court ordered that the grievances of the GDS who filed the three Writ Petition in Supreme court may be agitated before the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT). (Copy of the Hon’ble Supreme court order yet to be received.)

6.  The Writ Petition Filed by NFPE & AIPEU-GDS (NFPE) will be heard by the Hon’ble Delhi High Court on 04.02.2015.
As already stated above, the Writ Petition filed by NFPE & AIPEU-GDS (NFPE) is now in the Delhi High Court. We have filed our rejoinder reply statement to the counter affidavit of the Government of India, Department of Posts. The case will come up for hearing on 4th February 2015.


7.  The above detailed factual position is explained because daily many GDS from all circles are calling up over phone to know the correct position of the Court case. Case filed by NFPE & AIPEU-GDS (NFPE) will be heard in the Delhi High Court on 04.02.2015. The other three Writ Petitions came up for hearing on 02.12.2014 and 09.12.2014 is not filed by NFPE & AIPEU-GDS (NFPE).
