No. PF-Cadre Restructuring/2016                                             Dated: 03rd June, 2016

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

Sub: Cadre Restructuring in Department of Posts.

Respected Sir,
            I would like to convey my sincere thanks to the Department of Posts for issuing orders of Cadre Restructuring for PA Cadre in Department of Posts vide No.25-04/2012-PE- dated 27th May, 2016.

            In this connection I would like to draw your kind attention towards the agreement signed  between Postal Administration and Staff Side consisting NFPE and FNPO  under which it was assured  that the same will  be implemented  for all cadres in Department of Posts that i.e. RMS, R-III & R-IV, Mailguard, Mail Men, MMS, Postman, PA CO , PA SBCO , Postal Accounts  and Postmaster Cadre.

            But it is surprising that this has been implemented for Postal Assistant Cadre only in isolation which has created resentment and agitation in the minds of other sections of Department of Posts.

            It is therefore  requested  to kindly bestow your personal attention in this  matter  and  cause appropriate action  to get the  Cadre Restructuring  proposal implemented in all other Cadres  of the Department of Posts  as mentioned  above  as early as possible.

            An early action is highly solicited.
            With regards
Yours faithfully,

(R.N. Parashar)
Secretary General

NFIR - Strike Ballot on pending demands-17th and 18th January, 2014.

National Federation of Indian Raliwaymen
Affiliated to:
Indian National Trade Union Congress (INTUC)
International Transport Workers Federation (ITF)
No. II/95/Pt.V
Dated: 23/12/2013
The General Secretaries
of affiliated Unions of NFIR

Sub: Strike Ballot on pending demands-17th and 18th January, 2014.
While enclosing copies resolutions passed in the 27th National Convention of NFIR, held at Visakhapatnam from December 10th to 12th, 2013, the affiliates are advised that as per resolution, strike ballot should be organised on 17th & 18th January 2014 on pending demands, for eliciting the opinion of Railway Employees.

While NFIR is despatching posters (English) on Strike Ballot in limited number, the affiliates should print and display strike ballot posters in different languages for generating awareness among the employees on pending demands. The issues listed in the resolution should be displayed through various means to enable the employees to peruse the demands and exercise their opinion through Strike Ballot on 17th & 18th January 2014.
The results of the strike ballot should he conveyed to NFIR promptly for reviewing the same for deciding further course of action. All relevant records pertaining to conduct of Strike Ballot should be preserved by the affiliates.
Yours fraternatly,
General Secretary
10-12th DECEMBER 2013


The Twenty Seventh Annual Convention of NFIR in session at Vishakhapatnam on 11th and 12th December 2013 takes note of NFIR’s consistent struggle since the year 1969 for introduction of the concept of Productivity Linked Bonus” (PLB) to Railwaymen.
Due to the persuasion, initiative and relentless struggle of NFIR, the Government had agreed for evolving the Scheme of PLB to the Railway employees in the year 1979 and consequently an agreement was reached between the Federations and the Railway Ministry for introduction of PLB Scheme in the Railways. The NFIR had from time to time pleaded for bringing positive changes in the scheme more particularly relating to salary eligibility limit and calculation ceiling limit. The continuous efforts of the NFIR has yielded satisfactory results, so much so, the Railway employees in all categories become entitled for Productivity Linked Bonus (PLB)  Rs. 3500/- p.m. (on the basis of number of days of wages). This revised calculation limit was given effect from 2006-07 onwards as approved by the Union Cabinet on 03/10/2008.
Though the railway employees are presently entitled for P.L. Bonus in terms of number of days wages subject to the calculation of the same  Rs.3500/- p.m., the National Convention strongly demands that the notional calculation system presently followed should be dispensed with and the Bonus paid on the actual wages of the employees.
The National Convention therefore, demands that the existing calculation ceiling for payment of PL Bonus should be reviewed to facilitate employees to receive their legitimate P.L. Bonus on the basis of actual wages drawn.
The revision of wage structure for Central Government employees had been undertaken by the successive Pay Commissions appointed by the Government of India during the past decades and gave their reports. These reports have been implemented by the Government with some modifications and improvements. However, anomalies and aberrations continue to persist. 
Previous Pay Commissions (3rd, 4th, 5th & 6th) have by and large covered the aspects of the principles of wage determination. But, however, the job contents, remuneration commensurating with the nature of duties and responsibilities have not been taken into consideration by the Pay Commissions while determining the revised pay structure, consequently the Railwaymen have been put to disadvantage.
The 5th CPC had recommended that the DA must be merged with pay and treated as pay for computing all allowances as and when the percentage of Dearness compensation exceeds 50%. Accordingly, even before the setting up of 6th CPC, the DA of 50% was merged with pay in the year 2004.
Presently, the Dearness Allowance is 90% of pay as on 01/07/2013 and is likely to touch/cross 100% of pay as on 01/01/2014. The recommendation for merger of DA to partially compensate the erosion in the real wages was first mooted by the Gadgil Committee in the post 2nd Pay Commission period. The 3rd CPC recommended such merger when the Cost of Living Index crosses over 272 points i.e. 72 points over and above the base index adopted for the pay revision. In other words, the recommendation of the 3rd CPC was to merge the DA when it crossed 36%. The Government in the National Council JCM at the time of negotiations had initially agreed to merge 60% DA. The 5th CPC had merged 98% of DA with Pay.
As the DA already stood at 90% of pay and further revision is due on 01/0112014 when DA is likely to touch/cross 100%, it is therefore necessary that the Government takes steps to merge 50% with pay for all purposes w.e.f.01/01/2011 for ensuring compensation to the erosion of the value of real wage of Government employee.
The 27th National Convention, therefore, urges upon the Government of India to consider the demand and accord sanction for merging DA component of 50% of pay with the Pay for all purposes with effect from 01-01-2011.
The National Convention also appeals to the Central Government to grant Interim Relief to the employees as well as retired employees to sustain in the light of continued price rise of various commodities.
In the NFIR’s Election Manifesto-2013, Federation has committed to the Railway employees that the NFIR shall struggle for achievement of 7th Central Pay Commission. After Secret Ballot Elections results declared on 2nd May 2013, the NFIR Working Committee met at New Delhi on 30th / 31st May 2013 and passed resolution for preparing Railway employees for launching indefinite strike if the demands, more importantly appointment of 7th CPC, are not redressed by the Government of India and the Ministry of Railways. The Charter of Demands along with NFIR’s communication was sent to Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, Finance Minister, Railway Minister, Labour Minister etc.
It is a matter of satisfaction that the pressure and consistent struggle since Feb 2013, launched by the NFIR and Railway employees on the Government, has yielded result, wherein the Government has made announcement on September 25. 2013 for constituting 7th Central Pay Commission.
The 27th National Convention now in session in Vishakhapatnam unanimously resolves to convey its thanks to the Hon’hle Prime Minister for his decision to set up 7th Central Pay Commission. The National Convention, however, demands inclusion of one of Secretary level Officers of Railway Ministry as member of 7th CPC which may facilitate realistic examination of the issues of Railway employees.The National Convention also appeals to the Government to include a Labour Representative as one of the Members of the Commission.
The National Convention reviewed the labour situation vis-à-vis pending issues relating to Central Government employees including that of Rail Workforce. After lengthy deliberation's, the National Convention listed the issues placed below:
1. Guaranteed pension to those appointed on or after 01/01/2004.
2. Merger of DA with pay with retrospective effect.
3. Grant Interim Relief to Central Government employees (serving and retired).

         Next date of hearing of RTP case filed by NFPE, P-III and R-III CHQ at CAT Principal Bench Delhi is 04.01.2014. 

      Our main submission in the CAT is that RTP services should be counted as regular services for all purposes including pensionary benefits and especially for granting MACP promotions. In the recent judgment of the CAT Ernakulam Bench the CAT has ruled that RTP services SHALL NOT BE COUNTED FOR MACP promotions. Counting RTP services for TBOP/BCR alone will not give much benefit to employees. We want the entire RTP services should be counted for MACP.

Formation of All India Postal & RMS Pensioners Association

All India Postal & RMS Pensioners Association

The Department of Posts is one of the largest Central Government Departments next to Railways and Defence and the strength of Pensioners of Postal Department is also one of the biggest in the country. NFPE in its 9th Federal Council had resolved to extend full support and solidarity to the efforts of mobilizing the entirety of Pensioners of Postal Department, especially in the specific background of very serious attacks on Pension and Social Security of all Pensioners and Government Employees under LPG policies of Central Government. We also note with concern that despite the existence and functioning of different Pensioners’ Organizations in the country, more than 80% of Postal Pensioners remain unorganized. 
This weakness has to be eliminated in order to combat the attacks on Pension and Social Security. Mobilization of all Pensioners of Postal and RMS disregarding their union affiliations in the past is the need of the hour.

In this background, the National Federation of Postal Employees extends all support to the endeavor of mobilizing the entirety of Pensioners of the Department of Posts in the country by our retired Comrades, who have served in various capacities in the Postal Unions in the past.
The name of the new Organization will be All India Postal & RMS Pensioners Association.
