Sub: Report of GDS committee and its early implementation
in Department of Posts.
As you are aware GDS officials are the most exploited employees in postal net work. We are happy that of late this source of rural power is recognised and being harnessed to strengthen the department. Constitution of rural business division and rural technology is another step forward in this regard really deserve appreciation.
Success of any concern/department lies in combined effort of workers and the management, the authority knows better. Similarly it is very much important and very much essential you know to improve service conditions of the GDS employees to raise to the occasion. So, we request respected Madam to get the report of the GDS committee at the earliest for implementation. In fact implementation of pay committee report for GDS need to be expedited as this section deserve immediate financial support and improvement for better functioning.
We feel present time given to the GDS committee is more than sufficient to submit its report for the very reason that the committee is looking into the matter after Justice Talwar Committee which had indepth study in the matter. So, in the over all interest of the Department and the public service we also appeal to you not to grant extention of time, if any, to the GDS committee which is due to submit its report by July,2008. With high regards,
