Col. K C Mishra (VSM)
Chief Postmaster General
Maharashtra Cirlce
Mumbai-400 001

Sub- Agitation programme given by the AIPEU Gr ‘C’ Maharashtra Circle

Ref- Your office letter No. O & M/ NFPE/ Gr’C’/ Agitation/2013 dated 21-10-2013

Respected Sir,

           Your kind attention is invited to the discussion held with you on 24-09-2013 on above subject.

            Circle conference of my union had been held from 11-01-2014 to 13-01-2014 at Malegaon and we discussed the minutes received from your office vide letter cited above. The members are not satisfied with the reply given by CO for the reasons noted below.

  1. In respect of Item No. 3, about recovery of CGHS subscription- our demand was the CGHS subscription might be recovered after issue of CGHS Card to the employees. Whereas in Mumbai City North Division, the recovery was made from the officials residing in CGHS covered area from the date of their appointment. No one among them, a member of CGHS and they are not getting CGHS facility till the date of recovery. Hence, it is requested that the amount recovered from such officials should be refunded.
  2. In respect of Item No. 5, target imposed on postal Assistants /Supervisors, it was pointed out by the delegates attended the Circle Conference that the Divisional Heads are still harassing the staff for complition of target. This should be stopped immediately.
  3. In respect of Item no.6, recovery of minus balance - it is brought to the notice of Circle Union that Divisional Heads are directing the subordinate staff for lodging FIR against account holders. Lodging of FIR against account holders is the duty of Divisonal Heads. Similarly, it is found that the notices have been sent to Pensioners threatening as the action under Rule 9 of CCS (CCA) 1965 will be taken against them if they have not made good the amount, without giving proof as how are they only responcible for the mistake and without taking into account the responsibility of SBCO/Inspecting authorities. So it is requested that such type of harassement should be stopped and the Divisional Heads may be directed to try to recover the amount from the account holders only and if they refused to refund it then the action should be taken against all the responsible officials including SBCO staff and inspecting authorities.
  1. In respect of Item No.8, deputation of PAs to other wings/administrative offices – the assurance was given that they will be sent back to their parent Divisions. But I am sorry to say that now the period of more than 3 months has been but no action is appeared to be taken by the Administration and the Head of Divisions are taking more staff on deputation to their offices or deputing them to R.O./C.O. as per the directives of respective higher authorities. This is against the assurances given by you. So, kindly honour your directives.
  2. In respect of Item No.10, adhoc promotion in HSG I - I am sorry to say that in Mumbai Region the Grade Pay of HSG I cadre is still not given to the officials promoted on Adhoc promotion basis in the said cadre. So suitable instructions may be issued to all the concerned.
  3. In respect of Item No.11, conveyance of cash from SO to HO & vis-à-vis - At the time of discussion, it was assured by the Administration that the Armed Security guards will be provided from the Maharashtra Security Force and the case is in process, but in reality till this day no security guards are provided for cash conveyance in Mumbai City North, North-West and North-East Divisions.

It is requested that the assurances given by you may be implemented otherwise, we have no other alternative to resort Trade Union action by short notice.

A line of reply is highly appreciated.

With regards,

                                                                                                              Yours faithfully,
