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
Shri A. N. Nanda,
 Chairman, Postal Services Board,
 Dak Bhawan, New Delhi 110 001.

 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)

Eligibility of divorced daughters for grant of family pension - clarification regarding.

G No. 1/13/09-P&PW (E)
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, P.G. & Pensions
Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare
3rd Floor, Lok Nayak Bhawan,
Khan Market, New Delhi,
19th July, 2017.
Sub: Eligibility of divorced daughters for grant of family pension - clarification regarding.  
Provision for grant of family pension to a widowed/divorced daughter beyond the age of 25 years has been made vide OM dated 30.08.2004. This provision has been included in clause (iii) of sub-rule 54 (6) of the CCS (Pension), Rules, 1972. 
2. As indicated in Rule 54(8) of the CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972, the turn of unmarried children below 25 years of age comes after the death or remarriage of their mother/father, i.e., the pensioner and his/her spouse. Thereafter, the family pension is payable to the disabled children for life and then to the unmarried/widowed/divorced daughters above the age of 25 years. 
3. It was clarified, vide this department Office Memorandum of even number, dated 11th September, 2013, that the family pension is payable to the children as they are considered to be dependent on the Government servant/pensioner or his/her spouse. A child who is not earning equal to or more than the sum of minimum family pension and dearness relief thereon is considered to be dependent on his/her parents. Therefore, only those children who are dependent and meet other conditions of eligibility for family pension at the time of death of the Government servant or his/her spouse, whichever is later, are eligible for family pension. If two or more children are eligible for family pension at that time, family pension will be payable to each child on his/her turn provided he/she is still eligible for family pension when the turn comes. 
4. It was clarified that a daughter if eligible, as explained in the preceding paragraph, may be granted family pension provided she fulfils all eligibility conditions at the time of death/ineligibility of her parents and still on the date her turn to receive family pension comes. Accordingly, divorced daughters who fulfil other conditions are eligible for family pension if a decree of divorce had been issued by the competent court during the life time of at least one of the parents. 
5. This department has been receiving grievances from various quarters that the divorce proceedings are a long drawn procedure which take many years before attaining finality. There are many cases in which the divorce proceedings of a daughter of a Government employee/pensioner had been instituted in the competent court during the life time of one or both of them but none of them was alive by the time the decree of divorce was granted by the competent authority. 
6. The matter has been examined in this department in consultation with Department of Expenditure and it has been decided to grant family pension to a divorced daughter in such cases where the divorce proceedings had been filed in a competent court during the life-time of the employee/pensioner or his/her spouse but divorce took place after their death – provided the claimant fulfils all other conditions for grant of family pension under rule 54 of the CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972. In such cases, the family pension will commence from the date of divorce. 
7. This issues with the concurrence of Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure, vide their ID No. 1(11)/EV/2017, dated 7th July, 2017.
