NO. PF-16/2017                                                                               Dated : 22nd July,2017

To

 Shri. A. N. Nanda’
 Secretary’
 Department of Posts’
 Dak Bhawan, New Delhi – 110001

Sub: - Dress Allowance to Postman/Mailguard/MTS Staff of Department of Posts – reg.

Sir,

            As you are aware, 7th CPC has recommended that all uniform related allowances should be subsumed in a single Dress Allowances (including shoes). It has also recommended the rates of Dress Allowance for various categories of uniformed staff in Para 8.16.14 of its report. In that para no mention is made about the Dress Allowance of uniformed staff of Postal Department viz; Postmen, Mailguard and MTS.

            There is a mention regarding other categories of staff as follows:
“other categories of staff who are supplied with uniform and are required to wear them regularly, like Trackman, Running staff of Indian Railways, staff car drivers etc.” Their rate of Dress Allowance is fixed as Rs.5000/- per year.

            Even if is presumed that the Postmen, Mailguard, MTS Staff of Postal department comes under “other categories”, the Dress Allowance recommended by the 7th CPC is far below the amount of various items relating to Dress (washing allowance, cost of shoes uniform etc.) they are getting at present.

            Subsequently Govt. constituted an Allowance Committee headed by Secretary, Finance & Expenditure to review various allowances recommended by 7th CPC. Before the Allowance Committee NFPE has submitted a memorandum requesting enhancement of Dress Allowance of Postmen, Mailguard and MTS staff to 15000/- per month. But from the notification issued by Govt. after accepting the recommendations Allowance Committee, again no mention is made about Postmen/MG/MTS and no increase in Dress Allowance is made. The entire Postman/MG/MTS staff are aggrieved over the decision of the Govt.

            In para 8.16.14 of 7th CPC regarding Dress Allowance there is a special recommendation as follows: -

            “While the Committee has recommended that other categories of staff who are supplied with uniform and required to wear them regularly should be provided Dress Allowance at the rate of Rs.5000/- per year, the Ministries/Departments may taka a decision on whether the rate should be Rs.5000/- or Rs.10000 per year”

            From the above recommendation it is clear that the Department of Posts can take a decision to enhance the Dress Allowance to Rs.10000/- with the approval of Finance Ministry.

            In view of the of the above, I request the Secretary, Department of Posts to take immediate necessary action to raise the Dress Allowance of Postmen, Mailguard and MTS, at least Rs.10000/- per year, as per the recommendation of 7th CPC.

Yours faithfully,

(R. N. Parashar)
Secretary General
