Instructions from CPC(CBS) on Interoperable ATM in DOP

Dear All,
As you are aware DOP ATMs are interoperable, however still under observation for a week. As many ATMs were not online/kept open, patches pushed centrally by switch team could not be deployed in such ATM sites. Due to this non DOP ATM cards are not working in those ATM locations.

As per directorate orders all the DOP ATMs should be functioning and kept open 24X7. Hence, kindly instruct all the ATM site located SOLs to personally check the ATM screen by using other bank ATM cards and do some sample transactions. If the other bank cards are not functional in those ATMs please consolidate such ATM location details with ATM ID and SOLID for taking up the issue with respective vendor for early rectification by 02/01/2017 1100 hrs positively.

Thanks & regards,
Incharge Operations, DOP ATM Unit

Previously, people with accounts in postal department can only use the services of the India Post ATMs.

Today Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has approved the India Post's proposal for interoperability of its ATMs with other banks.

Equipped with a wide network of core banking solution (CBS) branches, Pensioners and other savings bank account holders, including Monthly Income Scheme (MIS) account holders with the postal department need not hence-forth wait in long queues for withdrawal of cash. They could withdraw up to a maximum of Rs.10,000 at a time from any ATM in India with the ATM cards issued to them. 

Good News! Bank customers can use Post Office ATMs and Post Office ATM can also use in other bank ATM Machine

Interoperable transactions started between Banks and Post Office through ATM Machine. Now we Postal ATM card can be accessed on other banks ATM machine and also Bank ATM card can be also accessed in our Post Office ATM machine. This is a very good news to all the postal and bank customers.

RTI regarding the workload points of the GDS in AP & Telangana Circle - CIC Video Conference with CH.Laxmi Narayana ,President NUGDS

RTI regarding the workload points of the GDS in AP & Telangana Circle - CIC Video Conference with CH.Laxmi Narayana ,President NUGDS. 

CPIO clearly clarified in the Video Conference with Central Information Commissioner and CH.Laxmi Narayana on 21.12.2016 at Guntur Collectorate Office that no GDS employees should work beyond 5 hours. If any such GDS officials working beyond 5 hours no extra payment will be paid.

In these circumstances I appeal all the GDS officials not to work beyond 5 hours as the GDS are not going to get any extra benifit. It is an appeal to all GDS that each and every GDS official should take into criteria regarding working hours. This effort is made for all GDS brothers and sisters by NUGDS.

Don't fight postmasters! Expose Government!

Don't fight postmasters! Expose Government!

Deplorable condition!

No money with the Government! No money with the State Bank of India! No money to the Post Offices! No money to Pension and Pay disbursement! But Government and Ministers often say 'enough money with RBI'! RBI got enough money; but no money with SBI and Banks and Post Offices! What a contradiction? What an apathy? Which is fact? Are the People fools to hear the cock and bull stories? Let the pensioners organise themselves and sit before banks and post offices in protest; let us call the media and expose to them our conditions! Let the media project the facts before the country! Go for protest action everywhere! - KR GS AIPRPA

Dear Sir,

Sub: Meeting with the Committee on Allowances
The Staff Side, National Council(JCM) had a meeting with the Committee on Allowances on 1st September, 2016, wherein it was advised us to send the committee a detailed note. Subsequently, on 16th September, 2016 we sent a detailed note on the allowances to your goodself with the hope that the Committee on Allowances would consider the same, and in case of reservations, they would at least hold a meeting on the detailed memorandum submitted by the Staff Side(JCM).

Almost four months have passed without any outcome. All the Central Government Employees’ are quite agitated as well as are having mental agony because allowances of the VII CPC, have not been implemented.

You are, therefore, requested to fix-up a meeting of the Committee on Allowances, at an earliest to resolve the issues placed in the memorandum of the Staff Side(JCM) on various allowances.

Here it is worth-mentioning that, the issues related to DoP&T were discussed by the Secretary(DoP&T) with the Staff Side on 25th October, 2016. The Staff Side is of firm opinion that, there should be resolution to the demands, and these Allowances should be implemented with effect from 01.01.2016, i.e. the date from which VII CPC has been implemented.

Sincerely yours

(Shiva Gopal Mishra)
