No. GDS/CHQ/05/1/2009 Dated: 13-10-2009
All Circle Secretaries/Divisional Secretaries/Branch Secretaries
All Members of the CWC,AIPEDEU
Subject: - Government orders on recommendations of the GDS Committee with regard to Pay and allowances.
By this time you must have gone through the orders issued by the Government Dept. of Posts letter No. 6-1/2009-PEII dated 9.10.2009 and come to some conclusion regarding its implications. We feel that you must have also underlined the areas where improvements/modifications in the order or its implementation is required.
Comrades, many queries are forthcoming as to whether the recommendations of Gopinath Committee were given any weightage. Though Gopinath Committee was not a pay committee, still it was a Committee on implementations and several recommendations of this committee as to pay and increments should have been taken into considerations. If the pay scales and rate of increments suggested by the group of officers under Sri Gopinath were not to be implemented, serious doubts naturally arise why this group of officers was at all constituted. Any way, the orders have been issued.
We request you kindly to suggest within three weeks the specific improvements that we should seek. We are also studying the orders very minutely and on receipt of the feedback from Circle/Division/Branch and CWC members we shall prepare a detailed letter seeking improvements.
We shall also, hold the CWC meeting sometime next month to discuss the whole issue in detail.
Based on the orders, we have prepared a fixation chart in respect of several stages of scales in different cadres. We have posted the same on our web site.
We would make a humble appeal to all our members. You are aware of the efforts that we have made and the benefits that have come on account of the same. We are not in habit of asking for donations. But now it is the time that we should have our own union building as also a separate legal expenses fund.
We call upon all our members to contribute Rs.200/- per member out of the arrears towards the Building fund and the legal expenses fund. The Divisional/Branch Secretaries are requested kindly to make special efforts for collection of the fund which may be sent to us giving the details of the collection.
We wish all our members a very happy Diwali.
