RESOLUTIONS ADOPTED IN FEDERAL EXECUTIVE OF NFPE HELD AT LUCKNOW ON 26 & 27 JULY, 2011

THIS FEDERAL EXECUTIVE MEETING OF NFPE HELD AT LUCKNOW FROM 26-07.2011 TO  27.07.2011 AFTER DETAILED DELIBERATIONS ON ALL ISSUESRELATED TO THE PROPOSED INDEFINITE STRIKE FROM 2011 JULY 5th HAS RESOLVED THE FOLLOWING:

1. This Federal Executive has come to the unanimous conclusion that, under the given circumstances the settlement reached with the Administration on the 25 points Charter of Demands is the best possible and fully ratify the decision of the JCA to defer the strike.

2.  This Federal Executive further direct the NFPE & JCA leadership to take follow up action to get orders released on all the agreed items in a time bound manner.

3. This Federal Executive demand the Secretary, Department of Posts, to arrange another review meeting on the PLI related issues as the decentralization  of certain important PLI/RPLI functions to Divisions has been done contrary to the sprit of the discussions held on 01.07.2011. Review meetings may also be arranged with the unions of Civil Wing and Postal Accounts as assured during the final round of discussion.

4  Regarding the formation of the Committee to review the Speed Post hubs and first class hubs (L 1,L 2) the Federal Executive is of the unanimous view that the induction of new technology and consequent changes in the mail processing should not lead to indiscriminate closure/merger of existing RMS Offices and interest of employees should be protected. The delay in public mail should be avoided and speedy delivery of articles should be ensured.

5. The Federal Executive further resolve that if any unilateral violation of the assurances given to the Staff Side take place then NFPE and JCA shall organize agitational programmes.

IMPLEMENTATION OF MODIFIED ASSURED CAREER PROGRESSION SCHEME (MACP) –CLARIFICATIONS ON CONSTITUTION OF DIVISIONAL SERUTINY COMMITTEE

IMPLEMENTATION OF MODIFIED ASSURED CAREER PROGRESSION SCHEME (MACP) –CLARIFICATIONS ON CONSTITUTION OF DIVISIONAL SERUTINY COMMITTEE

D.G. Posts No. 4-7/(MACP) 2009-PCC                              Dated 30 June,2011
            This has the reference to the Directorate letter of even No. dated 01.09.2010 vide which constitution of the Scrutiny Committee was prescribed at Divisional levels for scrutinizing the confidential reports of Postmen, PA/SAs & other Group `C` staff for the proceeding 5 years and grade the ACRs on basis of entries made by the reporting officer in it. The Committee so constituted were required to complete the exercise of grading the performance of the officialsw within a period of one month from the date of issue of the said order. It was clearly provided that the findings of the Committee shall require acceptance of the DPS/Regional PMG concerned and that the exercise was a one time exercise only.
2.         Service Unions have represented to the Department that the Committee has not been met and contended that the officials are not benefitted at all by its constitution. In the light of the representation made by service unions, it has accordingly been decided to make the purpose of constitution of Scrutiny Committee clear to all concerned.
3.         Hence, it is clarified that the process of communication of APAR`s (earlier ACR's) for regular promotion is equally applicable for consideration of financial ugradation under MACPS. As per existing provisions, complete APAR is required to be communicated to the official concerned from reporting year 2008-09 onward. Where an employee is to be considered for promotion in a future DPC and his ACRs prior to the period 2008-09 reckonable for assessment of his fitness in such future DPC contain final grading which are below the benchmark for next promotion, the concerned employee is to be given an opportunity to represent within 15 days of its communication before such ACRs are placed before DPC. Keeping in view the practice of writing ACRs in the Department to constitute Scrutiny Committee to scrutinize the grading based on the entries in the ACRs where there was no adverse entry exclusively for the purpose of grant of financial upgradation under MACPS. In other cases, where there was an adverse entry in the ACRs prior to reporting year 2008-09, the process of communication of the same was to be applied & representation decided in accordance with the existing provisions.
4.         Some of the Circle have also sought certain clarifications over the issue and the same are clarified as under:-
Ser
Issue
Clarification
1.
Whether the Divisional Scrutiny Committee has to just arrive at the average grading based on the grading given during the last 5 years to ease the work of the Screening Committee so that the Screening Committee can easily decide the cases fit or unfit based on average grading or the Committee has to go through all the entries, reassess the performance and award fresh grading ignoring the earlier grading given by the reporting officer/reviewing officer if found necessary ?
Scrutiny Committee ordered to constitute was required to re-assess the grading of each year based ion all the entries made in the confidential reports of the preceeding 5 years prior to reporting perion 2008-09 & grade the performance as `Average`, `Good`, `Very Good` etc. as a onetime exercise. Fitness for the purpose of conferment of financial upgradation under MACP based on reassessed grading of the Scrutiny Committee was to be adjudged by the Screening Committee only after acceptance of such finding by the authority mentioned in Para 7 of order dated 01-09.2010 on constitution of the Scrutiny Committee issued by this Directorate.
2
Whether the Divisional Scrutiny Committee can change the grading given by the reporting officer without receiving representation from the official/without disposal of representation /without intimating the initiated officer and whether such revision can be taken as authenticated for further reference. This office is of the view that the benchmark assigned by the reporting officer cannot be changed by the Committee
Grading given by the Scrutiny Committee after reassessing the ACR was required to be recorded separately without making a change in the grading given by the reporting officer/reviewing officer available on the original confidential reports. The finding of the Committee one being accepted by the authority in Para 7 was to be taken as authenticated for the only purpose of financial upgradation under MACPS
3.
Whether the Scrutiny Committee has to carry out the scrutiny/grading of all the officials or has to carry out the grading of only those officials who are due for MACP during the year?
Scrutiny Committee was required to reassess the entries of the preceeding 5 years ACRTs prior to the reporting period 2008-09 in respect of all the officials covered by the orders in the light of the new system of communicating the entries in the APAR effective from reporting period 2008-09 initiated after 01 Apr 2009.
4.
As the formation of the Scrutiny Committee is one time measure, whether Committee has to meet every year in the beginning and carry out the grading work in advance to facilitate the Scrutiny Committee to award financial upgradation under MACP
Since entries in APAR for reporting year 2008-09 onwards are prescribed to be communicated to the officials reported upon and representation made against the adverse entries/grading made, if any is to be decided by the competent authority & final grading is to be arrived at, no further scrutiny of the APAR would be involved. Hence the answer to this part is negative.
5.         In the light of the foregoing , it may please be ensured that where Screening Committee`s have not already met and completed the exercise the same may be got completed within one month and a division wise compliance on the completion of this exercise be sent to this office by 31st Jul 2011. In cases where the exercise has completed and the officials have not been benefitted by the above despite the fact that there was no adverse entry in the ACRs scrutinized, the process of communication ACR`s may at once be initiated and representations called for within 15 days of such communication and such representations be decided by the officer superior to the reporting officer/reviewing officer. Thereafter, Screening Committee may be constituted for consideration of grant of financial upgradation under MACPS, wherever justified and status thereof may also be reflected separately for each Division in the report to be submitted by 31.07.2011.
6.         This issues with the approval of Competent authority

FAX AND E-MAIL TO MEMBER (OPERATIONS) DEPARTMENT OF POSTS

RIV/CHQ/TS/HU/01.                                                                                             11-07-2011.
To
Member (Operations)
Department of Posts
Dak Bhawan, New Delhi -110001.
Madam,
                Sub: Abolition of HB-33 and HB-9 sections functioning between Hubli and Guntakal HB -7, Bangalore to Hubli, Q-1 ,Mangalore to Madgoan, Q-31, Q-32 Bangalore to Kolhapur,And connected HB-32 Harihar to Belgam.
             It has come to the notice of this union that the CPMG Karnataka circle has proposed/ordered abolition of HB-33 and Hb-9 sections functioning in passenger train between Hubli to Guntakal and vice-versa and ordered those mails to be transmitted through the S.T.C. Buses, recently introduced between Hubli and Guntakal. HB -7, Bangalore to Hubli, Q-1 ,Mangalore to Madgoan, Q-31, Q-32 Bangalore to Kolhapur,And connected HB-32 Harihar to Belgam
         This measure results in avoidable delay to mails not only meant for karnataka circle but also to mails including Speed Post and EPP Logistic Post emanating from many districts of Karanataka. moreover the STC Buses cannot transmit all the bags which are hitherto carried by HB-33 and Hb-9 Sections as they are heavy in number.
           Our union strongly opposes the abolition because it is not only against the existing policies and practices of the Department and the unions also it is likely to result in avoidable problems to the staff concerned. Even though clear instructions were issued by the Directorate to all concerned to discuss all such proposals with the unions at relevant levels before initiating any further action, they are being disregarded. No discussion are being carried out with the concerned unions which are better placed to scrutinize the proposals and render their opinions
          You are aware that the meeting with staff side and your good self on the strike charter of Demands on 30-11-2009 it was agreed that status quo as on 30-11-2009 and 12th July, 2010 will be maintained and no office will be merged/abolished without taking the staff side into confidence. Minutes of this meetings were issued on 1-12-2009 vide Directorate letter No.8-11/2009-SR dated 1st December 2009 and 12th July, 2010  It has been noticed that inspite of agreement on 30-11-2009 and 12th July, 2010 it has been noticed that Karanataka Circle are not honouring this agreement which shows not serious on the agreement reached with the unions and breaches it at its own will.
           Therefore, our union requests you kindly to intervene in the matter and cause withdrawal of proposal /orders of abolition of HB-33 and HB-9 HB -7, Bangalore to Hubli, Q-1 ,Mangalore to Madgoan, Q-31, Q-32 Bangalore to Kolhapur ,And connected HB-32 Harihar to Belgam. Section proposed/orders issued by CPMG Karanataka Circle.
                    Thanking  you                                                                                                         YoursFaithfully

Special Recruitment Drives for backlog vacancies reserved for SCs/STs/OBCs/PWDs

Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions

Government Launches Drive to fill up Vacant Posts of SCs/STs/OBCs/PWDs
The Government has launched a drive to fulfil the backlog vacancies of Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and OBCs and Persons with Disabilities.
This is following a review of the vacancy position in these categories by the Union Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances & Pension, Shri V.Narayansamy recently. All Ministries/Departments have been directed to fill up all the vacant posts in these categories by March 31, 2012.
The Government has been concerned about non-filling up of large number of backlog vacancies reserved for SCs/STs/OBCs/PWDs. Therefore, two Special Recruitment Drives – one for SCs, STs and OBCs another for PWDs were launched in 2008 and 2009 respectively.
The Drives enabled various offices to fill up about 26750 backlog vacancies but large number of such vacancies are remaining to be filled up.
