Central Government plans to abolish posts vacant for 5 years...

Central Government plans to abolish posts vacant for 5 years
The government is planning to abolish all posts which have been vacant for more than five years, and has directed all ministries and department to submit a comprehensive report on the matter.

In an office memorandum, the Finance Ministry said it had asked all ministries and departments to submit an action-taken report regarding abolition of posts vacant for more than five years.

Some departments and ministries have responded but some, instead of providing a comprehensive report, have submitted the requisite information in piecemeal manner, it said.

Therefore, financial advisors and joint secretaries (administration) of all ministries/ departments are requested to identify the posts which are vacant for more than five years and submit a comprehensive report on abolition of such posts in main ministry and their respective subordinate organisations at the earliest, the office memorandum, dated January 16, 2018, said.

Following this, the Ministry of Home Affairs has directed all its additional secretaries, joint secretaries, chiefs of paramilitary forces and other attached organisations to submit comprehensive reports, a home ministry official told PTI.

According to a preliminary estimate, there are several thousand central government posts which are lying vacant for five or more years, the official said.

The Secretary,
Department of Personnel & Training,

Dear sir,
Sub : Item No.2,10 and 48 of the Joint Committee of MACP – Agenda items of the Standing Committee. 
Kindly refer to the above, All the three items, which were discussed together pertains to the date of the MACP Scheme which was introduced by the Government on the basis of the recommendations of the 6th Central Pay Commission. The Staff Side demand to give effect to the revised promotional scheme from the date of the effect, the report of the Commission itself i.e on 1.1.2006 was unfortunately not accepted by the official side and was not  allowed to reach its logical conclusion i.e either by an agreement or disagreement.
We now send herewith copy of the judgement of the Hon’ble Supreme Court in the matter vide W.P 3744 of 2016 dated 08/12/2017.
The Hon’ble apex court has categorically stated that the Govt.’s decision to make the scheme effective prospectively was wrong and the scheme has to be implemented with effective from 1.1.2006. We request that the Govt, may issue necessary orders making the MACP Scheme effective from 1.1.2006 instead of 1.9.2008. While issuing such an order, it may also be clarified that the employees who were granted the benefit of ACP between 1.1.2006 to 31.08.2008 are not adversely affected and no recovery is ordered i from them in this connection.
Thanking you,


Yours faithfully,
S/d,
(Shiv Gopal Mishra)

Lunch hour Demonstration on 24/10/2017

FNPO has decided to go on Demonstration before the Divisional office on 24/10/2017 against the vindictive attitude of Modi Govt towards the Postal Deptt. to finish the Small Savings business &  issued Gazette notification  on 10.10.2017 in which all Nationalized Bank and Private Bank are empowered to do Small Savings works resulted more than 40% work load and staff strength will be badly reduced. Hence all the Divisional Union of FNPO affiliates jointly hold the demonstration to protest to withdraw the motivated and whimsical notification dated 10.10.2017. They are requested to to submit letter to the Secretary Post through the Divisional Superintendent.

Demonstrations in front of all Divisional offices.

No.7/SB/70/2017 Date: 17/10/2017
 To,
Shri A. N. Nanda,
 Chairman, Postal Services Board,
 Dak Bhawan, New Delhi 110 001.

 Sir,
 Sub: Protest demonstrations in front of all Divisional offices.

 Ministry of finance issued notification on 10/10/2017 vide F. NO 7/10/10/2014- Ns permitting all Nationalized Banks and three Private Banks viz ICICI Bank, AXIS Bank and HDFC Bank to accept deposits for all Small Savings Schemes. This will badly affect our revenue as well as workload in all the post offices.
Further, our Department replied to my federation on 1st August vide letter No.08/12/2017-SR that the recommendations of the Kamlesh Chandra committee have been considered by the Department of Posts and mandatory approval is being obtained in this regard now nearly 75 days have lapsed, there is no improvement on this important issue. We are getting the same reply from the concerned officers. My Federation is unable to reply to our GDS cadres.
One side Government is taking steps; one by one to reduce the importance of the Post offices, on the other side Department is not showing any interest to get mandatory approval from the Government with regard to GDS wage revision.
My federation doesn’t want to be a silent spectator on the above issues, therefore we have decided to organize lunch hour demonstration on 24/10/2017 in front of all Divisional office across the country to record our protest. Further course of action of my federation will be intimated after convening of our federal secretariat.
 Yours sincerely
 (D. Theagarajan)
