Comrade R.G.Savanur, former Circle Secretary, P- 3 and Ex. Secretary NFPE is no more.
The dedicated leader, everlasting guiding spirit of Karnataka breathed his last on 28-04-2012 afternoon during his visit to Dharwad. After attending a family function he was relaxing and death followed him within no time. His unmatchable wisdom, dedication, service to the postal community is unforgettable. His loss cannot be filled.

Resolutions on Retirement/Terminal benefits on the day of retirement;- Having served the department upto 65 years GDS officials go home empty handed on the day of retirement. Terminal benefits will be sanctioned and paid after some months or sometimes after years. Therefore in order to be fair and rational towards this section, we urge suitable action/measure before hand like departmental staff so that payment could be ensured on the date of retirement. Further the date of retirement of the GDS should be the last workingday of the month of retirement instead of the date of birthday of the particular GDS.

Ref;No.GDS/CHQ/37/AIC-Resolution/2012 Dated: 19-04-2012
Ms. Manjula Prasher,
Department of Posts,
Sub.: Resolutions on Problems - Compassionate appointment.
A resolution adapted by the 7th All India Conference of the All India Postal Extra Departmental Employees Union held at the historic place Mozri, Amravati, Maharashtra State from 6th to 8th April, 2012 on the above subject is forwarded herewith.
You are requested kindly to consider the views put forth in the resolution and cause to issue necessary orders accordingly.
With high regards,
Resolutions on Compassionate appointment – Not rational Criteria minimum 51 points to be reduced to 30 points as in rural areas every GDS will have a hut/shelter for living, a piece of land without income. For one or the other reason even though deserving cases do not earn required minimum points of 51 has deprived the GDS wards to get compassionate appointment. This is totally unjust and therefore urge upon the concerned to reduce minimum points to 30 instead of the present 51.

All India Office Bearer of AIPEDEU
Subject:- 7th All India Biennial conference of AIPEDEU at Historic place Mozri – A Thundering success. AIPEDEU emerges as mighty organization at Mozri defeating all the disruptive activities of disruptive forces.
The 7th biennial All India Conference of AIPEDEU was successfully held from 06-04-2012 to 08-04-2012 at Gurukunj Ashram, Mozri, Amrawati Division, Maharashtra as scheduled under the able presidentship of Com. Giri, All India President.
The conference commenced at 10-00 hours on 06-04-2012 starting with the flag hoisting. Our respected leaders of the movement hoisting the national, NFPE and AIPEDEU flags followed by thunderous slogans raised by more than 3000 delegates and visitors to the conference.
After flag hoisting, subject committee meeting commenced at about 11-00 hours to discuss the issues placed in the notice by General Secretary. All the 22 circles participated in the conference on the very first day itself. The president of the conference declared the quorum amidst the uproaring claps of the delegates and visitors. The conference started with lively discussions on the subjects of importance and concern to GDS employees.
The open session commenced at about 14-30 hours on 06-04-2012 with com. DN. Giri in chair. The open sessions was inaugurated by com. G.L.Dhar, secretary AITUC. Com. Dhar, greeted the Conference. He congratulated the Conference, Gramin Dak Sevaks and other Postal employees on the historic role played by them in the recent All India strike on 28.2.2012. He assured AIPEDEU of full support and Cooperation in resolving outstanding demands. He appealed to the Conference to strengthen unity of Postal Workers. Com. Parashar, secretary NFPE, who was deputed by com. M.Krishnan secretary General, NFPE, instead of greeting the Conference, attacked the AIPEDEU and its leadership. His baseless and false allegations were strongly resented and disapproved by delegates.com. P. Suresh, the young veteran General Secretary of R4. Union delivered powerful speech refuting baseless allegations of the Secretary, NFPE. He explained in detail how AIPEDEU and Com, Mahadevaiah were let down by the vested interests and AIPEDEU has been faith full to Postal Workers cause. Com. B.G. Thamankar, Ex-President NFPE greeted the conference. Com. Mungesh Parab, Working President/ Circle Secretary P3, Com. SC. Jain Circle Secretary MP P-3, Com.

On the second day i.e. 07-04-2012 after the commencement of subject committee debate, A.P. in charge circle secretary started to speak on out of agenda issues. The chair suggested to him to speak on agenda issues. He intentionally paid deaf ear and some delegates shouted slogans to create confusion. Some of the delegates and visitor Bengal continuously engaged themselves in shouting slogans against AIPEDEU in order not allow conducting the subject committee of the conference in a peaceful manner for about half an hour, Despite everything democracy in the functioning of this union, It is learned to that some parallel union floated. This will harm the larger interest of GDS Employees. This is while attempt to fragment the unity. The attack of Com Parashar on AIPEDEU, shouting of slogans by some delegates of Kerala and West Bengal was a pre-planned conspiracy of vested interests to disrupt the unity of AIPEDEU and thereby weaken struggle against Governments anti-Postal workers policies. This attack is continuation of earlier attack when AIPEDEU was thrown out of NFPE. Illegally unconstitutionally. Our conference continued the business as per schedule without any problem as overwhelming number of delegates supported the conduct of Conference in an orderly manner and condemned the attempts at disruption. They insisted that agenda be conducted and disruptors isolated.
On the third day i.e. 08-04-2012 com. B.V. Rao, First President of AIPEDEU and com. N.Balu, the renowned ex-circle secretary P-3 Tamil Nadu delivered inspiring and powerful speeches. Com. N. Balu, squarely attacking the anti union affairs of NFPE and P3 CHQ. Com. Balu, extended the moral Support of Tamil Nadu to Com. S.S. Mahadevaiah and AIPEDEU.
Finally Com. S.S. Mahadevaiah, General Secretary delivered an inspiring speech by giving suitable replies to the baseless and motivated allegations of Shri Parashar, secretary, NFPE. He explained in detail how vested interests had been working against AIPEDEU by throwing them out of the Federation in most unconstitutional and illegal manner. His speech was welcomed by delegates with thunderous applause. He also clarified false allegation contained in circular circulated conference. Finally he appealed to the delegates from Kerala and West Bengal who had absented from Conference from 7th After Noon to return back and not break the unity of the AIPEDEU which is of paramount importance. Com Mahadevaiah assured them that as before they will have place of honour in organization. The delegates who had doubts about certain problems facing by GDS employees, com Mahadevaiah clarified point by point in his concluding speech. He appealed for the GDS unity. The house unanimously adopted the resolution condemning the false propaganda against the General Secretary and CHQ contained in a pamphlet circulated in Conference.

Mozri, Rashtrasaint Tukdoji's Gramgeeta is considered as a 'mother' of ideal village. It is a book on self dependent village. It shows a way to develop villages on their own by creating development programmes by villagers themselves. So Tukdoji's thought is a genuine source to village development. It was a Village and the atmosphere was congenial for GDS employees to discuss their problems. The Reception Committee had made magnificent arrangements for smooth conduct of the functions. We extend our sincere thanks to the Reception Committee. Com. D.N. Giri, CHQ President and Circle Secretary, Com. M.L. Parimal, Ex. Circle President P-3, Com. B.G. Tamankar, Com.
