As per Government of India orders on Downsizing of Central Government Services, Screening Committee for filling up/aboliotion of posts was constituted in the year 2001 and Annual Direct Recruitment (ADR) plan was approved by the Screening committee for each year from 2001 to 2008. Screening Committee cleared only 1/3rd vacancies for direct recruitment and balance 2/3rd posts were abolished as per its recommendations.

Accordingly Department of Posts abolished 2/3rd vacant posts from 2001 to 2004. Regarding the abolition of 2/3 rd vacant posts from 2005 to 2008, Postal Department & Communication Ministry requested Finance Ministry to grant exemption to Department of Posts from abolishing the vacant posts from 2005 to 2008, as it is an operative Department dealing with the general public and customers. 2/3rd posts earmarked for abolition from 2005 to 2008 are kept vacant (but not abolished) pending decision of the Finance Ministry.

The ban on recruitment was lifted and the Screening Committee was abolished in the year 2009. Government of India issued orders to fill up all vacant posts for the year from 2009 onwards. Accordingly, Department of Posts, issued orders to fill up all vacancies for the year 2009 and 2010. Orders are also issued to fill up all vacant posts for the year 2011 and 2012. But, at the same time, Directorate issued clear instructions to all Chief PMGs that posts kept vacant for the year from 2005 to 2008 should not be filled up under any circumstances but should be kept vacant. (for abolition).

Finance Ministry has now made it clear that no permission or exemption will be granted to any department including Department of Posts to fill up the posts kept earmarked for abolition as per the Screening Committee recommendations. Accordingly Department of Posts has now issued orders to abolish all the 2/3rd vacant posts (Total 17093 posts for four years) for the year 2005 to 2008.

GLORIOUS STRIKE BY CG EMPLOYEES - PRESS RELEASE BY CONFEDERATION HQ



CONFEDERATION OF CENTRAL
GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES AND WORKERS
Manihsinath Bhawan
A/2/95 Rajouri Garden
New Delhi. 110 027.
Website: confederationhq. Blogspot.com.
Dated: 11th  December, 2012


D/14/2012(1)                                       PRESS  STATEMENT
            About a million Central Government employees will take part in the one day token strike tomorrow, the 12th December, 2012.  The employees organisations in the Postal, Income-tax, Audit and Accounts, Printing and Stationery, Geological Survey of India, Survey of India, Customs, Central Excise,  Indian Bureau of Mines, CGHS, Ground Water Board, Central Water Commission, Central Public Works, Census, Atomic Energy Commission, Defence Accounts, Indian Space Research Organisation, Andaman Nicobar and Pondicherry Administration, Medical Stores depot and many other Public Utility Departments of the Government of India have confirmed their participation in the strike action.  The strike is organised by the apex level Confederation of Central Govt. employees and workers, New Delhi on the basis of the strike notice served on 19.11.2012 for a settlement of the 15 Point charter of demands (copy enclosed)
            The Central Government employees throughout the country are agitated over the Government's fresh move to enact the PFRDA Bill in this session of the Parliament.  It is surprising that even after the uncontested findings of the Committee set up by the Government that the new Contributory Pension Scheme will only increase financial outflow for the Government and the beneficiaries also stand to lose heavily on account of it, the Government has chosen to go ahead with the New Scheme.  The recent decision of the Government to allow FDI in pension sector will only further help the transnational corporation to access to the hard earned savings of the Indian Common people to maximise their profit.
            Apart from scrapping the New Pension scheme, the employees are demanding the setting up of the 7th Central Pay Commission for wage revision, reintroduction of the Universal Public Distribution system stoppage of outsourcing of Governmental functions, contractorisation, privatisation etc. regularisation of Grameen Dak Sewaks, contingent, casual and daily rated workers, lifting the ban on creation of posts, filling up the vacant posts  revival of the negotiating forum, JCM etc.
            Due to the breakdown of the negotiating machinery, there had been no dialogue between the Government and the employees for the past several years.  The employees are extremely critical of the attitude of the Government using  the sovereignty of the Parliament to reject the award given in favour of the workers by the Board of Arbitration which is not only contrary to the terms of arbitration but unethical too. The continuing vindictive attitude of the C& AG administration against the employees and union functionaries for normal and peaceful trade union activities is highly deplorable. 
            If the Government refuses to take note of the resentment and initiate steps to bring about settlement, the agitation is bound to escalate in the form of indefinite strike action encompassing even other section of the employees.
