Gramin Dak Sevaks Latest News : AIGDSU writes letter to Sri Amit Shah
To Sri. AMIT SHAH JEE,
Bharatiya Janatha Party,
Most respectfully we are submitting herewith memorandum on behalf of two lakhs sixty three thousand Gramin Dak Sevaks in the Department of posts for your kind perusal.
The department of posts is the only department of the Government of India where there is a special category of employees working called Gramin Dak Sevaks. In fact of the Gramin Dak Sevaks are the backbone of the postal department. The postal functions rendered at the nook and corner villages of the country covering 75% of population by the Gramin Dak Sevaks are of high order and quality. Almost every postal service i.e. Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employees Guaranty scheme (MGNREGS), Rural Postal Life Insurance (RPLI), old age pensions, Sukanya Samruddi Accounts(Yojana) and payment Bank is provided in one or other way at the branch post offices manned by the Gramin Dak Sevaks.
The Government of India has set up one man committee under the Chairmanship of Sri Kamalesh Chandra, retired Postal Board member to examine the conditions of service and emoluments and other facilities of the Gramin Dak Sevaks.
The Committee submitted its report to the Secretary, Department of posts on 24, November 2016. Now the report is under the consideration of the Finance Ministry. It needs Cabinet approval.
We are humbly requesting the Hon’ble Prime Ministers intervention for REGULARISATION OF GRAMIN DAK SEVAKS, extending all benefits including pension with due approval from Central Cabinet at the earliest.
The top level officers are the hurdle in the way of GDS for REGULARISATION for the last 70 years of India’s independence and hence we request your kind honour to consider their hard work, sincerity and contribution to the Department/Govt in the changed circumstances i.e. when BJP is in power under the dynamic leadership of Shri.Modi jee.
Hoping immediate action at your end as inordinate delay is noticed in this regard and the employees are frustrated about the negligence towards this section.
With high regards,
