Shri. Ravishankar Prasad,
Hon’ble Minister for Communications & IT,
Government of India,
Subject:- Extension of helping hand for Justice to above Two Lac Sixty Thousand Gramin Dak Sevak Employees of the Department of Posts-request for.
We on behalf of above more than Two Lac Sixty Thousand (2,60,000) Gramin Dak Sevaks of the Department of Posts, respectfully seek your indulgence in extending your helping hand to such lower starta of employees who serve the rural population throughout the Country. As a matter of principle, the issues of pay scale and service conditions of the Gramin Dak Sevaks who were earlier known as E.D. Agents are referred to the Central Pay Commission (as was done with the first CPC) or simultaneously pay committee are constituted. The Seventh CPC was appointed in the year March, 2014 but Pay Committee or Pay Commission for Gramin Dak Sevaks has not yet been appointed which is due to be appointed under the loue Chairman cum member under a retired Judge of High Court, as per commitment.
The Department signed a solemn agreement with this union on 21/02/2014 to appoint an one man committee for the Gramin Dak Sevaks in case our issues were not included in the terms of reference of 7th CPC. A copy of the agreement is attached for your ready reference.
The appointment of the one man committee under the Chairmanship of a retired Judge was being delayed or denied forcing us to agitate. The Department signed a tripartite agreement under the signature of an officer of the Department; Chief Labour Commissioner and the representatives of this union to appoint a Pay Committee in consultation with this union. A copy of the agreement is enclosed for your reference, Sir.
We have already given our suggestion on 24/04/2015, but the department has not moved. Probably they want us to tire out. The report of the CPC is expected to come out any time now while is our case the Pay Committee has not even been constituted you may kindly agree that there cannot be any greater injustice.
Hence this union is requesting the Hon’ble Ministers kind intervention to settle the three issues by utilizing your good offices.
With kind regards,
