Inspiration - This Former IIT Prof Once Taught RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan. Today He’s Helping Tribals in MP...

If you happen to be in the densely vegetated area of Betul and Hoshangabad in Madhya Pradesh, you are likely to stumble upon an unassuming old man with a scraggly white beard, quietly making his way through the wilderness on his cycle. He goes by the name Alok Sagar and was once a resident of New Delhi. For the last 34 years however, this man has been working untiringly for the betterment of tribals in Madhya Pradesh.

.......Yet, what makes his selfless efforts more noteworthy is the fact that Sagar left a lucrative career as an IIT Delhi professor to serve the people.

Sagar is an alumnus of IIT Delhi himself, with a Bachelor in Electrical Engineering as well as a Masters from the reputed institute. He then went on to pursue his PhD at Houston University in Texas, US. Upon returning to India, Sagar joined his alma mater as a professor and even went on to teach current RBI Governor, Raghuram Rajan.

By 1982 however, Sagar felt that he could contribute more to the development of the country by working with people on the ground. He resigned from his well-paying job and took off towards Betul and Hoshangabad.

For 34 years, his neighbours and the tribals he worked with had been completely in the dark about Sagar’s past as a renowned academic at a prestigious institution. It was only during the assembly elections in the district when, unable to verify his background, the Betul district administration asked him to leave. This was when Sagar revealed his true identity..................

Ministry of Communications today launched India Post Help Centre and a Toll Free Number 1924 to address the grievances of people in the Country related to Department of Posts. Inaugurating the Help Centre here, Minister of Communications, Shri Manoj Sinha said that the move comes in the wake of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s PRAGATI (Pro-Active Governance And Timely Implementation) review meetings, where he exhorts the Union Ministers to actively address the grievances of the common man by setting up and strengthening Public Redressal Grievances Mechanism.

Shri Sinha said that the Help Centre has been launched in three languages -Hindi, English and Malayalam and gradually all regional languages will be included which are mentioned in the Schedule of the Indian Constitution.

He said, the Help Centre will be functioning from 8 A.M to 8 P.M on all working days except holidays. Shri Sinha said that soon, in every circle a nodal officer will be appointed to bring efficiency in redressal mechanism.

The Minister stressed that except in the case of policy decisions, all complaints related to postal services will be addressed within 24 Hours. Shri Sinha recalled that last month he had launched “Twitter Sewa” for addressing the complaints and concerns of common man and other stake-holders in the telecom and postal sectors, where on an average 100 complaints are received daily related to postal services. He said, the Department of Posts is one of the 8th largest Department/Ministry in terms of numbers of complaints received. A toll free helpline number ‘1924’ would be available for customers from all over India from landline/mobile phone of service providers namely AirTel, Idea, Vodaphone, Telenor, Aircel, MTS, Reliance etc.

The complaints received from the complainant on toll free number ‘1924’ would be registered in Computerized Customer Centre (CCC) Portal by the operators at the Dak Bhawan and the 11 digits ticket number would be provided to the complainants. If the complaint already registered, the complainant would be informed the status as viewed in CCC Portal. As soon as the complaint is generated on CCC Portal, the concerned post office will take immediate necessary action to resolve it and would upload the status.

The Secretary,

Sub: Grant of Cash equivalent to Leave Salary on the eve of LTC and on retirement etc; 
This is regarding giving of the difference of CELS to the applicable cases for those are entitled and sanctioned as per the old pay from 1.1.16 to 25.7.16 ( the date of notification of the CCS RP Rule 2016) consequent upon the revision of pay from 1.1.16 retrospectively.

2. In terms of 38-A of CCS (leave ) rule encashment of EL along with LTC is to be calculated on pay admissible on the date of availing LTC and DA admissible on that date. If PAY or DA , admissible advised has been revised with retrospective effect , going by the rule the Govt. Servant would be entitled to encashment of leave on the revised rates.

3. The clarification to the above effect is given in DOPT no; 21011/08/2013 –Estt (AL) dated 25.3.2013.

4. The rate of allowances alone have been kept pending in the 7th CPC and are required to be drawn as if 7th CPC is not implemented and there is no super ceding orders of any leave rules so far in the scope of 7th CPC and Govt orders on the recommendation .

5. Hence it is requested to revise leave encashment as per the standing orders on CCS (LR) and cause to pay the difference of CELS to the applicable cases.

Yours Sincerely,

(D Kishan Rao)
General Secretary
