Death Claims to be Processed within 07 Days and Retirement Claims to be Settled on the Day of Retirement
Payment of Statutory Contributions Henceforth only through Internet Banking
The Prime Minister of India during the PRAGATI review meeting held on 26th October desired that claims related to death cases be prioritized and expedited and retirement claims may be settled on the day of retirement. In accordance, the processes have been reviewed and instructions have been issued to field offices to settle death claims within a period of 07 days from the date of receipt of proposal and retirement claims on the day of retirement. The officials in the facilitation centre of field offices have been instructed to scrutinize the claims and guide the claimant regarding submission of required documents in appropriate shape. An official has been posted in the facilitation centers of EPFO this category of claims.

Employers are now increasingly using internet banking to deposit statutory EPF dues since EPFO made it mandatory to use internet banking as the mode of receipt of EPF dues. 96.03% contributions in October 2016 were received online.


In an important judgment delivered by the High Court of Madras in the matter of writ petition filed by Builders Association of India, Madurai, the High Court dismissed the petition praying non enforcement of EPF & MP Act, 1952 every employee employed in or in connection with the work or that factory or establishment, other than an excluded employee, who has not become a member already shall also be entitled and required to become a member of the Fund from the date of joining the factory or establishment.

To expand the reach of convenience offered to EPF members, EPFO has joined the network of Common Services Centers (CSC). A Memorandum of understanding (MoU) has been signed between EPFO and CSC e-Governance Services India Limited (CSC SPV) on 25th October 2016. The MoU is initially for a period of five years. Every year on 14st November, pensioners were required to submit their life certificates. From this year onward, pensioners can submit digital life certificates via Jeevan Pramaan Patra programme through a large number of points of Presence (PoP) of CSC network in addition to those available at EPFO offices. The pensioners living in remote areas can avoid cost and inconvenience of travelling down to the EPF offices or their banks for filing paper based life certificate through this arrangement.

Secretary (Finance) shown much interest and he asked so many questions and raised queries on each allowance and asked the Department to submit a report on financial implications.
            The meeting was concluded in a very co-ordial manner and we should hope for positive outcome. On the following allowances we submitted our proposal which is mentioned below:

          Special Allowance to PO & RMS Accountants:
            Proposal: The allowance is required to be continued as this special            allowance has been sanctioned in lieu of higher pay scale. If abolished, one           increment is to be allowed on promotion which costs more to the Department.        Therefore, it is proposed to grant special allowance equivalent to one     increment which will be kept separately and not to be added in the basic pay.         Other conditions applicable to present allowance will remain in force. (i.e. if      this allowance  is drawn for three  years it will be  added to basic pay while          pay fixation on promotion.)

          Fixed Medical Allowance:

            Proposal: 33 Postal Dispensaries may be merged with CGHS.

      All Postal Pensioners irrespective of their participation in CGHS while in     service should be covered under CGHS after making requisite subscription.

      Till such time, the FMA may be allowed @ Rs.2000/- per month enhancing            from Rs.500/- p.m.  being paid at present.

WITHDRAWAL OF THE PROPOSED INDEFINITE HUNGER FAST IN FRONT OF DAK BHAWAN FROM 3rd NOVEMBER, 2016 AND TWO DAYS STRIKE ON 9th & 10th NOVEMBER 2016.

No.PF-PJCA-12/2016                                                                              Dated : 01.11.2016

To,
            The Secretary,
            Department of Posts,
            Dak Bhawan, New Delhi-110 001

Sub: Withdrawal of the proposed indefinite hunger fast in front of Dak Bhawan from 3rd November, 2016 and two days strike on 9th & 10th November 2016
                                                
Sir,
            While expressing our sincere thanks to you and the Postal Board for taking positive action for settling the demand for bonus parity to Gramin Dak Sevaks, we would like to request your sympathetic and immediate intervention for implementing the Directorate orders for payment of revised wages to Casual, Part time Contingent employees working in the Postal Department with effect from 01.01.2006. 

      The Directorate has issued orders for payment of revised wages (6th CPC minimum) to casual labourers in the month of January 2015. Subsequently the queries raised by some Chief PMGs were also clarified by Directorate. Even though 21 (twenty-one) months are over, the Directorate orders are not yet implemented in some circles. We have already brought the case to your notice and the notice of the concerned Chief PMGs several times, but the issue still remains unsettled. Hence we were compelled to include this demand also as the second demand of the proposed indefinite fast in front of Dak Bhawan from 3rd November and two days strike on 9th & 10th November 2016.

         As you have assured us that the grievances of this poor and most downtrodden section of workers will be settled in a time-bound manner, we hereby inform you that we have decided to withdraw the proposed hunger fast from 3rd November and two days strike on 9th & 10th November 2016.

          We once again request you to issue strict instructions to all Chief PMGs to implement the Directorate orders in a time bound manner, say, before 30th November 2016.
        
              Thanking you in anticipation

                                                    Yours faithfully
