SPECIAL DUTY ALLOWANCE:- The 8th  All India conference in session at the historic place Warangal/ Hanumakonda A.P.

Thereafter the Special Duty allowance was paid to the employees    working   in the region in the same atmosphere such risks and dengers at par with regular employees.  Therefore, the same Allowance or a similar may be extended to Postal Gramin Dak Sevaks also who are working in the region.

Resolutions on Incentives for promoting small family norms to the G.D.S.:- A need has come to examine and extend the benefit of incentives for promoting small family norms to the Gramin Dak Sevaks. A period of about 68 years of independence of India these GDS Employees are deprived of the benefits of the Govt. of India's National policy. We request you kindly to look into this matter personally and cause to issue necessary orders for grant of incentive equal to one annual increase to the eligible Gram Dak Sevaks so that we need not feel discrimination in this behalf.

Sub.: Resolutions on - Uttarakhand Allowance.

Madam,        

          A resolution adapted by the 8th All India Conference of the All India Gramin Dak Sevaks Union held at the historic place Warangal/ Hanumakonda A.P. Circle from 8th   to 10th June, 2014.on the above subject is forwarded herewith.

          Resolutions on Uttarakhand Allowance:- In 1966, the then communication Minister and the Director General of post and Telecom department have taken personal  initiative and an amount of Rs. Forty(40/-) per year was granted considering the need for purchase of warm clothes and shoes in view of the prevailing climatic condition.  The GDS working in Uttarakhand, Pitoragarh, Almora, Tehri Ghadwal and Chamoli are the places where the allowance is granted.  Even after a lapse of 43 years, since 1966, the allowance is not revised and the hardship of the GDS is inexplicable. An amount equivalent to the actual price of the clothes and shoes was geanted, at that time when the consolidated allowance of ED Agents varied from Rs.25/- to Rs.35/- per month was paid. This allowance was paid in September in the case of ED Agents who worked regularly for six months from March onwards. No other type of compensatory allowance is being paid to ED Agents working in other parts of the country.

Gramin Dak Sevaks, like the whole-time departmental employees, are also subject to the vagaries of nature and are subject to similar hardships. If the whole-time employees, who continue to stay in such a place for years, are entitled to remote locality, hill compensatory, border allowance, etc. there is no reason to deny such compensatory allowance to ED Agents on the ground that they are locals. This Committee, therefore, recommends that the ED Agents should be granted the various types of compensatory allowances subject to the same conditions as are applicable to the whole-time employees. However, in that event, the Uttarakhand Allowance will have to be discontinued. In this regard we urge the administration to grant the Uttarakhand allowances at least Rs.10000/- per year which will be commensurate with the rate of present allowances.

Sub.: Resolutions on Problems - Provision of special amenities to the Gramin Dak Sevak working in odd situations in hilly areas,

Madam,

         

          A resolution adapted by the 8th All India Conference of the All India Gramin Dak Sevaks Union held at the historic place Warangal/ Hanumakonda A.P. Circle from 8th   to 10th June, 2014.on the above subject is forwarded herewith.

Resolutions on Provision of special amenities to the Gramin Dak Sevak working in odd situations in hilly areas:- Keeping in view the geographical and climatic condition of the country, the G.D.S. are working in a pitiable condition as compare to other employees of Govt. of India and they face much difficulties on account of odd climatic and geographical condition remoteness of areas, dangerous hilly routes of traveling, snow falls, land slides etc. A brief description of hardships faced by the employees is submitted as under and the proposals for redressal of the grievances are also noted against each.

2.      Remoteness of areas: Most of the hilly areas are not so easy of access. These areas are generally spread over in remote corners of hills and high mountains much far away from Rail or Bus heads. The employees have to travel on foot. The essential commodities are rarely available and at a very high cost. No basic facilities are available there. The Departmental employees are compensated in the form of remote locality allowance/Border area allowance/Difficult area allowance, backward area allowance. But the E.D. employees (G.D.S) are deprived from the same. A provision of such risk allowance should also be made to the Gramin Dak Sevaks e.g. in places like J&K, Uttarakhand, North East, Sikkim etc.

Grant of Naxalist Threat Area Allowance:   According to O.M. No. 2003/5/90-E.II (B) dated 27-01-93 of Ministry of Finance, the compensatory allowance shall be paid to Central Government employees during which he serves the tribal areas and the orders shall remain in operation up to the date of withdrawal of such allowance by the State Government.  Accordingly the allowance was in operation till 31-03-2002 and the postal officials were paid with Tribal Area Allowance.
After 31-03-2002, the State Governments like Maharashtra discontinued the payment of Tribal Area Allowance to their employees working in Chandrapur and Gadchiroli districts and granted Naxalist Threat Area Allowance at the rate of 15% of the basic pay subject to a maximum of Rs. 1500/- per month.
The same allowance has not been paid to the postal officials who are working in these and inaccessible forests and facing the horrified problems as in the case of State Government employees. The same is the position in respect of Andhra Circle, Jharkhand, Orissa,Chattisgharh, W.B. Circle and Karnataka the threat is visible.

Resolutions on - Regarding Allowances:-
(i)     Payment of Rs. 100/- as OMA is inadequate in these days of spiraling cost of living. Payment of Electricity charges should also be taken note of. Hence Rs. 100/- be enhanced to Rs. 1000/- P.m.
(ii)     Ceiling fixed for cash conveyance at the rate of Rs. 50/- should be removed. We cannot predict as to when and how many days the surplus cash will have to be conveyed in a month. Hence the ceiling should be removed. On the other hand it may be fixed at the rate of Rs. 150/- for each occasion. i.e., Five times of the old rate formula without any ceiling.
(iii)       By the condition of removing minimum distance factor of 10 km for grant of cycle maintenance allowance, that means, all the GDS, MD/MC/Packer duties will be treated as cyclable beats and the TRCA would be drastically reduced. Special considerations are necessary to resolve this issue as the work of these categories of GDS need to be assessed on the practicality the section is to be treated a multi skilled GDS like departmental staff.  For this section foot beat formula need to be made applicable as in the past.
(iv)        As regards combination of duties no combined duties are to be attached if the incumbent is having 5 hrs work load. By the addition of Delivery or mail conveyance work etc, the total work load would become more than 5hrs say about 7 hrs which would justify for regularization of the post. So we must demand for the up gradation of the post as Group 'D' or postman as the case may be.
(v)      Compensation of Rs. 12/- per day for detention of mails is totally inadequate. Based on the hourly rate of TRCA fixed for the GDS a minimum of Rs.100/- should be paid per hour of detention. Considering the above facts our demands should be as follows.
(Vi) Revise Boot allowance Rs 30/- to Rs- 600/-

Resolutions on Incentive to GDS Sports Persons:- Presently GDS are recruited for sports proficiency mainly in the field of Kabaddi, foot ball, cricket, carom, volley ball, etc.  However after recruitment there is a grievance that the welfare of sports persons is neglected.  There are however very proficient persons in this field who are ranking at state and All India level and even some are at international level.  It is therefore suggested in order to encourage sportsmen, the following measures are proposed.
1.     Suitable training schedule and time off.
2.     Better equipment and sports uniforms.
3.     Food and dieting allowance to sustain stamina, particularly weight lifters/body builders.
4.        Better promotional avenues, especially those representing All India Postal meet.
