HC refuses to intervene in post office location

MADURAI, July 25, 2016 

Court dismisses petition that challenged the closure of a branch in Karur district

Recognising the competition faced by the Department of Posts in the digital era, the Madras High Court Bench here has said that courts could not interfere in decisions taken by the department to curtail expenditure.

A Division Bench of Justices Nooty Ramamohana Rao and S.S. Sundar made the observation while dismissing a public interest litigation petition filed by P. Thangavelu, a resident of Inam Karur Municipality, against a decision taken by the department to relocate L.N. Samudram branch post office in Karur district.

Mr. Justice Rao said: “It is not for us to determine where a post office should be located. The choice of establishing the post office vests with the Union of India and it is for them to decide from which location they will be able to serve the public more effectively.”

A matter of convenience

The Bench said establishing a post office was a matter of convenience and its location was a matter of policy. The judges pointed out that the petitioner was guilty of not disclosing the fact of having filed a similar case which got dismissed in 2010. Similarly, he had deposed as a witness in a civil suit filed by a councillor of the municipality before a lower court in Karur in 2008 against relocating the post office.

Judgment passed in the suit had reached finality on account of dismissal of an appeal preferred against it.

Confederation is confident of increase in 7th Pay Commission Multiplication Factor

7th Pay Commission Multiplication Factor is one of the key demand of CG employees. CG employees got suspicious after recent reply of Finance Minister whether govt is considering to increase the Multiplication Factor or not. In this connection, Secretary General, Confederation stated that Employees need not come to a conclusion that 7th Pay Commission Multiplication Factor will not not be increased.

In this connection, Mr. Krishnan, Secretary General, Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers has stated that in view of reply of Finance Minister in the parliament Empoyees need not come to a conclusion that 7th Pay Commission Multiplication Factor will not not be increased as he has used the term “at present”.

Further Mr.Krishnan has opined that Govt is concerned about Indefinite Strike action of Central Government Empoyees in the event of no increase in 7th Pay Commission Multiplication Factor.

The Text of report released in the official website of Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers on this issue is as follows

Dear Comrades,

We are reproducing below the reply given by the Hon’ble Finance Minister Shri Arun Jaitley in the Rajya Sabha on 19-07-2016 —

The Finance Minister has made it clear that “the government is responsive to the concerns of the Employees’ Associations and it would be the endeavor of the Government to ensure that the eventuality of a strike does not arise.”

Regarding increasing of the multiplication factor, the Finance Minister replied that:

“no such proposal is under consideration of the Government, at present’

The assurance given to the NJCA leaders by the Group of Ministers (including Finance Minister) on 30-06-2016 is that enhancement in minimum pay and fitment factor (multiplication factor) will be considered favourably by the Government, once the proposal in this regard is submitted to Government by the proposed “High Level Committee” within four months. Hence, the matter will come for the “consideration” of the Govt. only after submission of the report by the High Level Committee.

In that sense, technically, the reply of the Finance Minister that “at present” there is no such proposal under consideration of the Government, may not be taken in a different manner and we need not jump into the conclusion that multiplication factor will not be increased.

However, giving due importance to the concerns expressed by many of our comrades and grass-root level leaders, the NJCA will discuss this issue shortly and take appropriate decision. NJCA is keenly observing the move of the Govt. and any going back from the assurances given by the Group of Ministers or any betrayal of 33 lakhs Central Govt. Employees and 40 lakhs pensioners by the NDA Govt., shall result in revival of the deferred strike by the NJCA and Government will be solely responsible for all consequences.

M.KRISHNAN

Secretary General
Confederation

8500 post offices will turn into e-Centers by June next year


State Minister for Ministry of Information, Communication and Technology Zunaid Ahmed Palak on Thursday said the government would turn 8,500 post offices into e-centres by June, 2017 to disseminate information and communication technology services to the rural people across the country. He said this on behalf of State Minister for Post and Telecommunications Begum Tarana Halim while replying to a starred question from treasury bench member Sukumar Ranjan Ghosh in the House.

The government has undertaken a project named Post E-Centre for the Rural Community to turn the post offices into e-centers, he said adding, these e-centers would minimize the digital divide between cities and villages, create employment facilities in villages and develop information and technology based skilled manpower.

He said after completing the project, the people would get more updated facilities from post offices and they would be able to track and trace their letters sitting at home. The people would also be able to use cash, postal cash cards or electronic money transfer service (EMTS) and to pay their e-commerce bills through the services, Palak said. Meanwhile, establishment of the ICT based rural post offices has been completed and such 1,000 more offices will be established by June 2017, he added.

NASA's New Horizons postage stamp enters Guinness Book of World Records!

Image courtesy: NASA/Dan Afzal/U.S. Postal Service

New Delhi: NASA's New Horizons spacecraft is currently administering a probe in and around Pluto and for those of you who are unaware, it is also carrying a 1991 “Pluto Not Yet Explored” postage stamp.

Yesterday, July 19, NASA proudly announced that the stamp in question has earned a Guinness Book of World Record honour for the farthest distance traveled by a postage stamp!

Jimmy Coggins, official adjudicator for Guinness World Records, during a presentation ceremony on July 19 in the Hall of Flags at U.S. Postal Service Headquarters in Washington, D.C., said, “Our mission is to make the amazing official,” as reported by NASA.

Well, it certainly seems like they have! As per NASA, the 29-cent “Pluto Not Yet Explored” stamp became a rallying cry for the New Horizons mission team, which affixed it on the spacecraft at Cape Canaveral, Florida, prior to launch on Jan. 19, 2006. The stamp hitched a ride of more than 3.2 billion miles to Pluto, reaching the dwarf planet on July 14, 2015, bringing humanity its first breathtaking close-ups of the mysterious world.

However, the stamp was cancelled last July when New Horizons flew past Pluto.

The “Pluto Not Yet Explored” stamp is now 274-million miles (441-million kilometers) beyond Pluto, in a quest of sorts, it seems, to break its own record.

Chennai GPO may be first T.N. post bank: The Hindu

Chennai General Post Office (GPO) is likely to be first post bank in the State to be launched early next year. The Department of Posts is planning to set up ‘India Post Payment Banks’ (IPPB) using the postal network to provide banking services to people.

Aimed at providing access to banking services to people particularly in rural areas, the IPPB will provide a range of services, including direct benefit transfers and facilitate various payments like old age pension and government subsidies. The vast network of post offices would be used to eventually even deliver the payment at the doorstep of customers. Officials of the postal department said such post banks would function as separate entity and function according to the guidelines of Reserve Bank of India.

Mervin Alexander, postmaster General (Chennai city region), said, “Payment banks will deal with money remittances of all kinds to people. This could be useful to people particularly in rural areas who have limited access to banks. But, it will not provide loans. However, savings schemes and deposits will remain under post offices at this point of time.” Earlier, core banking network solutions and postal ATMs were started as part of an initiative to provide banking services at post offices.

Net banking and mobile banking will be the next step towards reinventing the postal services according to the changing trend. The department has also announced a competition for logo design and tagline for the proposed IPPB. The tagline should not exceed eight words either in English or Hindi and the best entries will be awarded with a cash prize of Rs.25,000. The last date of submission is July 31.

'Department of Post' to have GPS equipped vehicles

Department of Posts has decided to use GPS device for better monitoring of vehicles. This step has been taken to mechanize mail delivery in phased manner.

India Post network has expanded from 23,344 post offices to 1,55,035 post offices as by 31.3.2008. Of these 1,39,173 Post Offices are in rural areas and 15,862 Post Offices in urban areas with an average post office serving 7,174 people and covering an area of approximately 21.2 sq. kms so the department has undertaken several other projects to improve the quality of mail processing, transmission and delivery.

Under National Address Data Base Management System project, the Department has undertaken and initiative to put in place a national address database management system with an objective to effectively manage the address database of public/ customers, update the addresses online, and help the customers in locating correct addresses and PIN codes.

7th CPC Notification – CG employees are Expecting Eagerly

7th CPC Notification – CG employees are Expecting Eagerly

It is expected that Finance Ministry will issue necessary order and Notifications to implement the 7th Pay Commission recommendations as soon as possible.
7th Pay Commission is become interesting news for not only CG employees but the people across the country. Very important reason for this is Press Media. Every day at least one Daily writes an Article about 7th CPC news based on hearsay and it never missed to attract everyone.
To defuse the Indefinite strike called by NJCA , the Central Government assured NJCA that the Govt will constitute four committees to look into the important demands raised by NJCA. Based on the Press release issued by Finance Ministry, NJCA decided to defer the Indefinite Strike.
Though there are 26 Demands placed before the government, the issues of Minimum Pay, Fitment factor and HRA are mostly expected to be settled.
How much it will be increased from 18000 is the main point of discussion among CG employees and it is noteworthy that Govt also approved the uniform Fitment factor 2.57 to All grades as recommended by 7th Pay Commission.
In case the Proposed Committee recommends to increase the Minimum Pay to 19000 or more than this, subsequently Fitment factor also may be revised. As recommended by 7th Pay commission, the Committee also can use the following method to arrive the Fitment factor as per the increase in Minimum Pay
18000/7000 = 2.5719000/7000 = 2.7120000/7000 = 2.8521000/7000 = 3.00
If the Minimum Pay is increased, the Fitment factor also has to be increased. Based on the New Fitment factor, the existing pay of CG employees will be revised.
For example If, Basic Pay of a Govt Servant is Rs.10000(including Grade Pay of Rs.1900), His revised pay as per 7 th CPC will be 10000 x 2.57 = 25700 ( to be fixed as 26000 as per Pay Matrix Table)
As per the above fitment factors, the Basic Pay will be revised like this..
10000 x 2.71 =27100
10000 x 2.85 = 28500
10000 x 3 = 30000
From the above example it is obvious that Pay matrix also to be modified as per fitment factor.
There is also expectation on HRA that the 7th CPC recommended rates i.e 8%, 16% and 24% would be restored to the existing rates of 10, 20 and 30 percent respectively.
In the meantime, everybody is thinking about what are all the Provisions are incorporated in the 7th CPC Notification. We will have to wait to see the impact of the Notification to be issued by Finance ministry amidst expectations and doubts.
