                            Kindly refer to our letter dated 22.03.2012 on the above subject (copy enclosed for ready reference) where in we have brought to your notice the undue delay taking place in settling the already agreed items of the charter of Demands. It is regretted to inform you that evenafter a lapse of one month no remarkable improvement has taken place and more or less the position remains almost the same.

                               In view of the above, notice is hereby given that the secretary Generals of NFPE & FNPO and also all other General Secretaries shall be sitting on one day hunger fast in front of the Dak Bhawan and also in front of all Chief PMG offices on 21st May 2012, Monday from 10.00 AM to 05.00 PM demanding settlement of the agreed items without any further delay. We hope that the administration shall come forward to settle the issues amicably as we do no intent to precipitate the issues further to a stage of confrontation and direct action.

                                                           Awaiting favourable response,
                                                                                             Yours faithfully,

           A kind attention is invited to the discussions we had during strike Charter of demands and also further assurances to us that unlike in the past whatever assured during discussions will be implemented without any delay.
           But to our dismay, many of the assured items are still not disposed of favourably and even the clarifications assured to be issued are still pending. Further it is learnt that the Internal Finance is rejecting the assurances given by Minister for state for communication and also the Secretary, Department of Posts. which causes a serious concern.  The following are the few items in which categorical assurance had been ensured in the minutes of the meeting and also during discussions.

26.  Issuing clear instructions to all Chief PMGs that in the city areas where RO/Cos are situated decentralisation of RPLI/PLI should not be done to city Postal Divisions, instead the work will be done by RO/CO staff as done before.

28.  Cadre-restructuring and settlement of Group D and sorter anomaly issues relating to Postal Accounts.

30.  Examination of CRC & EPP norms.

Apart from the above, the minutes of the standing committee (JCM) and also the reply to the items already discussed in the strike charter but included on JCM items are yet to be issued.
It is constrained to inform that in the event of non settlement of the above items within one month we have decided to observe one day token fast in front of Directorate by all the General Secretaries.
  We trust that your will effectively intervene and maintain tranquility in service.
                                       With profound regards,
