Aadhar cards are mandatory for each and every resident of India as these will become the only Identity Proofs. And, ration cards are a necessity for people of India.

Due to increased scams and frauds in case of ration cards, govt. has decided to opt for aadhaar cards for added security.

Experience on CSI Environment and suggestions for Improvement

After 10 days working in CSI environment. Here I mentioned some drawbacks and solutions to overcome that. (These are up to my knowledge only please consider if possible)

1.SAP is looking good and user-friendly But drawbacks are…

Q.Everytime we have to Open a new window for invoicing to either beat or BO

Need to improve selection of beat and BO at the same window

Q.I think no reports column is there in SAP for Delivery slips (Both Postman & BO)

Create a column for Reports with selection of postman and BO in a single window.

Q. No abstract register ???

Create Abstract register for all articles.
Q. Cash remittance and request problems?

Cash remittance and request is easy but while clearing transit is too difficult because transit GL is unique and it will blocked by other user so to overcome this that transit document number should be created on facility id and profit centers of both offices and it will be cleared irrespective of blocking of Transit GL code. Just like accessing of DOP cash GL code.

Coming to POS Back office and Counter

Here most important and major changes will be done then maximum 30% of work will save to employees. Then u can use this time for other works also.

First I confirm one thing to all of you if we are going to online environment then everything should be online. We can't do even single work on paper expect public deposit vouchers.

Q.Finacle and McCamish are user-friendly but need some changes

Create a single report column for generation of reports where there is transactions is happened it will save more time.

The most important thing is Finacle and McCamish heads are automatically fetched to daily account in SAP for SO transactions and for BO Finacle transactions we will do outside of POS counter up to RICT implementation. It will save more time and reduces maximum tension of Post office work to employee because voucher posting is too difficult in SAP and it will be done with too much care.

Create a tab for treasury payments like bills paid

Expect Finacle and McCamish of Counter POS is fine.

Last but not least Internet issue is major problem. Everything is online but no net to reach that online kindly increase speed of the net at least 10 mbps even cellular network also given that speed.

Finally I confirm one thing these are up to my knowledge and please do needful action if possible. 

I kindly request SP sir please arrange a committee on problems with operating staff and then arrange a meeting with RO/CO regarding on this and we are ready to ask these problems.

New Recruitment taking time, Railways to engage retired staff

रेलवे में नई भर्ती में अभी लगेगा वक्त, संरक्षा की चुनौतियों से निपटने के लिए फिलहाल सेवानिवृत्त रेलकर्मियों को दिया जा रहा है काम का अवसर

रेलवे में संरक्षा की चुनौतियों के बीच नई भर्ती में अभी वक्त लगेगा। हांलाकि रेलवे ने अपनी संरक्षा जरूरतों को पूरा करने के लिए नई भर्ती की प्रक्रिया शुरू कर दी है। फिर भी बहुत तेजी से भी प्रक्रिया चलायी गयी तो कर्मचारियों की नियुक्ति, फिर उन्हें प्रशिक्षण आदि की औपचारिकताएं पूरी करने में एक वर्ष का समय लग ही जाएगा। हांलाकि रेलवे ने तात्कालिक जरूरतों को पूरा करने के लिए सेवानिवृत्त रेलकर्मियों को फिर से काम पर रखने का सिलसिला शुरू कर दिया है।
इनकी सेवाएं केवल 65 वर्ष की आयु तक की ली जाएंगी। इन सेवानिवृत्त रेलकर्मियों से संरक्षा से जुड़े कार्यो से जोड़ा जाएगा या नहीं। इसको बहुत ही बारीकी से देखा जा रहा है। अभी तक रेलवे के पास यह आंकड़ा नहीं आया है कि कितने सेवानिवृत्त रेलकर्मियों पुन: काम के लिए आवेदन किया या भर्ती हुए हैं। दरअसल रेलवे में बीते कुछ वर्षो में जिस तरह से ट्रेनों और सेवाओं का विस्तार हुआ उस लिहाज से रेलकर्मियों की भर्ती नहीं की गयी। इसके विपरीत बहुत तेजी के साथ रेलकर्मी सेवानिवृत्त होते हैं।

उनके स्थान पर नये कर्मचारियों भर्ती के बजाय मशीनों और प्रौद्योगिकी के इस्तेमाल कर रेलकर्मियों की जरूरतों को पूरा किया गया। लेकिन अब हालात यहां तक पहुंच गये हैं कि रेलवे में करीब सवा दो लाख रेलकर्मियों के पद खाली हैं और जरूरतों के लिहाज से रेलकर्मियों की मांग बढ़ी है। लिहाजा रेलवे ने भर्ती की प्रक्रिया शुरू कर दी है और एक लाख नये कर्मचारियों की भर्ती होगी। लेकिन कर्मचारियों की भर्ती के लिए परीक्षा, नियुक्ति और फिर प्रशिक्षण में एक वर्ष का समय लग जाएगा। इसके बाद ही नये रेलकर्मी रेलवे को मिल सकेंगे। इस सिलसिले में रेलवे का हमेशा से यह कहना होता है कि रेलवे में भर्ती की प्रक्रिया निरंतर चलती रहती है।

फिर भी हमेशा से बड़ी संख्या में पद खाली रहते हैं। यही कारण है कि फिलहाल रेलकर्मियों को कमी को पूरा करने के लिए सेवानिवृत्त रेलकर्मियों को काम का अवसर दिया जा रहा है। इसके लिए उनकी अधिकतम आयु सीमा 65 वर्ष रखी गयी है। यह प्रक्रिया रेलवे में शुरू हो गयी है। कुछ सेवानिवृत्त रेलकर्मी आवेदन कर रहे हैं तो कुछ को नियुक्ति पत्र मिल गया है। यह सब कुछ अनुबंध के आधार पर हैं और पेंशन की धनराशि को घटाकर उन्हें वेतन दिया जाना तय किया गया है। इस संबंध में रेलवे के एक अति वरिष्ठ अधिकारी का कहना है कि सेवानिवृत्त रेलकर्मियों को कार्य का अनुभव है।

Counting the pre appointment Induction and practical training period as regular service for the purpose of grant of MACP promotion in the Department Of Posts. - AISBCEU Letter to Directorate

CHQ Lr.No: AISBCEU/Counting of training period for MACP/27-2017 Dt. 15.10.2017/28.12.2017

To
SRI. ANAND NARAYAN NANDA,
Secretary [Posts]
Dak Bhawan, Sansad Marg
New Delhi -110001 [Email ID: secretary-posts@indiapost.gov.in] posts@indiapost.gov.in

Respected Sir,
Sub: Counting the pre appointment Induction and practical training period as regular service for the purpose of grant of MACP promotion in the Department Of Posts.

Ref: 1. Dte letter no 4-7/(MACPS)/2009-PCC dt 18.9.2009
2. Dte letter no 4-7/(MACPS)/2009-PCC dt 23.6.2016
3. CPMG A.P.Corcle Lr.No: SST/PA/D;gs/2016 Dt: 27.09.2016
4. CPMG, Assam Circle Lr.No: Staff/37-13/32 Dt: 28.06.2017

Our Union wish to bring your kind notice about the following genuine reasons to reconsider the to reconsider the above reference Dt: 18.09.2009 para Nu: 9 for issuing clarification regarding the Counting the pre appointment Induction and practical training period as regular service for the purpose of grant of MACP promotion .
Hitherto the training period has not been taken into account for the grant of promotion under MACPs in many Circles. On perusal of the rulings on the above subject, it seems that the period of training is to be taken into account for MACPS also. This period of training is included for MACPS in other Circles of AP and Assam, and the MACP promotion were issued by considering the training period. The copy of order is enclosed for your kind information to take a uniform stand in all Circles in view of the following genuine reasons.

1. All the candidates selected for PA cadre are to undergo Induction and practical training for 90/105 days, before regular appointment. Such period of training was not counted for anything and their pay and allowances, increments were regulated from their actual date of joining in the department as Postal Assistants.

2. Subsequently, orders were issued for counting the training period for increments and for the promotions (financial upgradations) under TBOP and BCR schemes, vide Dept. of Personnel and Trg OM 16/16/92-Estt(pay I) dt 31.3.1992.

3. The above provision was made applicable with effect from 1.1.1986. The pay of the officials was notionally fixed from 1.1.1986 to 30.9.1990 and on actual basis from 1.10.1990.

4. The above provision was applicable to those officials who underwent training on or after 1.1.1986.

5. The provision was extended to officials who underwent training before 1.1.86 videDte order number: 44-2/2011-SPB II dated 5.5.2016. The list of officials is called for by DO and the same has been submitted to DO.

6. The scheme of MACPS was introduced consequent on the implementation of 6th CPC with effect from 1.1.2006.

7. This scheme was given effect from 1.9.2008 vide reference cited under 1 above.

8. The salient features of the scheme were given in the Annexure-I to the communication cited under 2 above.

9. The second sentence of para 9 of the Annexure read as follows: “Service rendered on adhoc/contract basis before regular appointment or pre-appointment training shall not be taken into reckoning. A casual reading of the text gives the meaning that the pre-appointment training shall not be taken into reckoning. Under this context, the training period was omitted for the grant of MACP to the officials, it is presumed.

10. But a close reading of the above text gives a different but correct meaning. The meaning of the above text may be explained as follows. If the sentence is broken into smaller parts, they read as follows.

a. Service rendered on adhoc/contract basis before regular appointment shall not be taken into reckoning.

b. Service rendered on adhoc/contract basis before pre-appointment training shall not be taken into reckoning.

11. From (a) and (b) above it is clear that only the service, if any, rendered on adhoc/contract basis either before regular appointment or before pre-appointment training shall not be taken into reckoning.

12. From the above it is clear that pre-appointment training shall count for MACPS, as the above text speaks only about the services rendered on adhoc or contract basis which might before regular appointment or before pre-appointment training, and nothing about the training period.

13. As per the communication cited under 2 above, the second sentence of para 9 is modified as follows: “service rendered on adhoc/contract basis before regular appointment on pre-appointment training shall not be taken into reckoning.”

14. From the above it is clear that any service rendered on adhoc/contract basis will not count, but the training period counts for the grant of promotion under MACPS. It is added that as per our departmental rules, the training period is neither treated as service on adhoc basis nor on contract basis in as much as this period counts for increment and also for TBOP/BCR promotions.

15. For clarity sake consider the following rule of our department. “ Air journey on LTC is not permissible” which means that no government servant is entitled for air journey on LTC but LTC can be availed. This does not take away the privileges granted under LTC. The restriction is for air journey only.

16. Also as per the developments taken place towards the counting of training period for service, the training period counts for increment and TBOP/BCR schemes.

17. It is added that just like TBOP/BCR schemes, MACPS is also a financial up gradation only. Hence the provision of counting training period towards TBOP/BCR will squarely applicable to MACPS also.

18. The observations of CIFA noted in A.P.Corcle CPMG order Dt: 27.09.2016 that:
a. the period of training is a part of process /formality to be completed prior to appointment and the appointment orders are issued on completion of training period satisfactorily. Detail of pre-appointment training, payment made to the training period of training shall also be recorded in the service book of officials concerned.

b. Both the orders of Directorate Vide No: 44-2/2011-SPB –II dated 05.05.2016 and No 4-7/(MACPS)/2009-PCC dt 23.6.2016 for counting the period of pre-appointment training as qualifying service for purpose of TNOP/BCR/MACP UPGRADATION only and not for advancing /altering the date of appointment.[Copy of CPMG order is enclosed]

19. It is clarified by the CPMG, Assam Circle vide Lr.Dt: 28.06.2017 that Under the provision of G.I.Dept Per & A.R.O.M.No:28/32/81 – Pension Unit Dt:22.09.1983 and Dept of P & P.W.O/M/No: 28/37/86 P & P.W. Dt: 12.09.1986 , the pre appointment training period will be treated as the qualifying service for pension if the same is followed immediately for regular appointment.
In view of the above clarification, the training period [if the same is followed immediately for regular appointment] will also be counted for MACP being treated as the qualifying service. The Competent Authority has, therefore, directed ao all concerned for taking necessary action for granting financial up gradation to all the eligible officials under the purview of the above clarifications.

Those officials, who have completed 16/26 years’ service before 1.9.2008, had no problems, as their pay would have been fixed on the date of promotion to TBOP/BCR schemes prior to 1.9.2008. If the training period is included, the date of promotion to TBOP/BCR would be advanced and their pay would be re-fixed accordingly. .[Copy of CPMG order is enclosed]

As per the above para 10 to 14, 18 & 19, it is clear that pre-appointment training shall count for MACPS, as in para 9. text speaks only about the services rendered on adhoc or contract basis which might before regular appointment or before pre-appointment training, and nothing about the training period and , the training period [if the same is followed immediately for regular appointment] will also be counted for MACP being treated as the qualifying service.

In view of the above reasons, In case of the officials who have got their MACP after 1.9.2008, the date of MACPS is to be advanced. Necessary clarification may please be issued immediately to follow an uniform stand in all Circles to avoid anomalies in this MACP promotion,

Thanking you, Sir.
Yours faithfully,

[B.B.SHARMA, GENERAL SECRETARY]

Year End Review-2017: Important Achievements of Department of Posts

1. Implementation of Core Banking Solutions in the Department of Posts

Overview:

• The Post Office Savings Bank (POSB) was started in 1882 to facilitate small savings in the country. It operates as an agency of the Ministry of Finance and caters to the basic savings needs of the citizens.

• All the 1.55 Lakh Post Offices in the country provide the basic banking products of the POSB. Of these 25,353 are departmental Post Offices which are manned by the regular government employees.
• At the end of March 2017, there were35.62 Cr live accounts with a balance of Rs. 5,32,338 Crore and Savings certificates with an outstanding balance of Rs. 1,98,935 Crore

• The Post Offices were operating on a standalone software which operated in a closed environment.

• Many value added services like ATMs, inter branch banking, Internet and mobile banking, DBT etc were not available to the POSB customers

Challenges faced:

• Though an impressive customer base, the banking services were not upto industry standards.

• As the complexity of services grew, it became difficult to monitor it on the old system.

• Government schemes of DBT, financial inclusion and social security could not be serviced on the old software.

PPF Accounts to be closed, interest lowered to 4 per cent if you become an NRI - Gazette Notification

Non Resident Indians are continually looking for investment opportunities in India. A few weeks ago, we blogged about “NRIs for real estate investment in India – Know the simple Rules” The Government of Indian recently announced new rules under which select small savings schemes like Public Provident Fund (PPF) and National Saving Certificates (NSC)will not earn you the same rate if you become non-resident Indians (NRI).

A summary of changes to rules and what it means to NRIs:

NRIs will no longer be permitted invest in small savings schemes like NSC and PPF. In the past they were allowed to retain their PPF account if they had opened it before becoming an NRI.

PPF and NSC currently fetch an interest rate higher than bank savings rates. Some of it is subsidized by the Government of India. (Current rate of PPF is 7.8 per cent while Post Office savings account get 4 %)

PPF accounts would be deemed to be closed prior to maturity in case the holder becomes a non-resident Indian (NRI). The investor will be then paid interest at the rate applicable to Post Office savings accounts till the date the PPF account is closed.
The Indian government notification on PPF dated October 3 states,
“Provided that if a resident who opened an account under this scheme, subsequently becomes a non-resident during the currency of the maturity period, the account shall be deemed to be closed with effect from the day he becomes a non-resident and interest with effect from that date shall be paid at the rate applicable to the Post Office Saving Account up to the last day of the month preceding the month in which the account is actually closed.”

The finance ministry notification adds:
“Provided that if a resident Indian having purchased a certificate, subsequently becomes Non-Resident during the currency of the maturity period, the certificate shall be encashed or deemed to be encashed on the day he becomes a non-Resident, and interest shall be paid at the rate applicable to the Post Office Savings Account, from time to time, from such day and up to the last day of the month preceding the month in which it is actually encashed.”

GRAMIN DAK SEVAKS - LOK SABHA Q & A (27-12-2017)


Labour Movement

Need For Trade Unions:
Why do workers organize themselves into a trade union? It is however, a significant question. The worker joins a trade union for a variety of reasons, but he may be no more conscious of the motive or motives that prompt him to join a union. The trade unions are the organizations formed by working male and female workers both to improve the conditions of labour and to further to attain better life.
i. The individual workers all alone feels especially weak in a world of mass production and mass movement. An organization may give him an opportunity to join others for the achievement of those objectives that he considers as socially desirable.

ii. The basic purpose of trade union is to safeguard the economic interests of its members. One of the problems in the life of the workers is how to provide sufficient food, clothing and a home for himself and for the members of his family. This is first and foremost a question of finding a job on a reasonable wage. To improve and maintain the wage at 47 a reasonable standard is one of the primary reasons for which a worker joins a trade union.

iii. A worker does not only require the bare necessaries of existence but he also wants to obtain the amenities of civilized life, e.g., a better home, more leisure, better conditions of work, etc. The workers also join the trade unions, to a very large extent, because they have interests such as these to promote or defend.

iv. The need for trade unions arises due to this fact also that the workers require help in time of sickness or death, protection from suffering and want when they are not of a job and an income of some kind when they are too old to work any more.

v. There is anesthetic reason for the existence of trade unions, viz., need for adequate machinery for settling the relations between the employers and employees. In modern industry the old personal relationship between the employers and the workers largely disappears. The worker may become dissatisfied with his working conditions or the treatment of his employers while the employer may feel that he has reason for complaint against the workers. With the growth 48 to industry the number of such questions to be settled increases and it is much better to adjust these differences by agreement between the employers and employees through negotiations. Thus, a trade union is the best and socially most desirable to conduct bargaining on behalf of the workers and the development of collective bargaining between the employers' and workers' organizations is an essential basis for the establishment of peace in industry.

vi. Trade unions developed on proper lines lessens violent class conflicts and, thus, is beneficial to employers, the employees, the state and the public. It is, thus, clear that no agency formed or promoted to look after the interests of the workers can be a real substitute for trade unions. The organization of workers is, therefore, not only necessary but also inevitable.

OBJECTIVES AND NEED OF TRADE UNIONS :

Unions concentrate their attention to achieve the following objectives:

(A) Wages and Salaries : The subject which drew the major attention of the trade unions are wages and salaries. This item may be related to policy matters. However, differences may arise in the process of their implementation. In the case of unorganised senior the trade union plays a crucial role in bargaining the pay scales. The Workers should be provided with need based minimum wage.

(B) Working Conditions : Trade unions with a view to safeguard the health of workers demand the management to provide all the basic facilities such as lighting and ventilation, sanitation, rest rooms, safety equipment while discharging hazardous duties, drinking water, refreshment, minimum working hours, leave and rest, holidays with pay, job satisfaction, social security benefits and other welfare measures. The concept of 48 hrs a week should be adopted.

(C) Personnel Policies : Trade unions may fight against improper implementation of personnel policies in respect of recruitment, selection, promotions, transfers, training, etc.

(D) Discipline : Trade unions not only conduct negotiations in respect of the items with which their working conditions may be improved but also protect the workers from the clutches of management whenever workers become the victims of management's unilateral acts and disciplinary policies. This victimisation may take the form of penal transfers, suspensions, dismissals etc. In such a situation the separated worker who is left in a helpless condition may approach the trade union. Ultimately, the problem may be brought to the notice of management by the trade union, which explains about the injustice meted out to an individual worker and fights the management for justice. Thus, the victimised worker may be protected by the trade union.

(E) Welfare : As stated earlier, trade unions are meant for the welfare of workers. Trade union works as a guide, consulting authority and cooperates inn overcoming the personal problems of workers. It may bring to the notice of management, through collective bargaining meetings the difficulties of workers in respect of sanitation, hospitals, quarters, schools and colleges for their children's cultural and social problems.

(F) Employee-Employer Relations : Harmonious relations between the employees and employer are sine quanon for industrial peace. A trade union always strives for achieving this objective. However, the bureaucratic attitude and unilateral thinking of management may lead to conflicts in the organisation which, ultimately, disrupt the relations between the workers and the management. Trade union, being the representative of all the workers, may carry out continuous negotiations with the management with a view to promoting industrial peace.

(G) Negotiating Machinery : Negotiations include the proposals made by one party and the counterproposals of the other. This process continues until the parties reach an agreement. Thus, negotiations are based on the give and take' principle. Trade union, being a party for negotiations, protects the interests of workers through collective bargaining. Thus, the trade union works as the negotiating machinery.

(H) Safeguarding Organisational Health and the Interest of the Industry : Organisational health can be diagnosed by methods evolved for grievance redressal and techniques adopted to reduce the rate of absenteeism and labour turnover and to improve the employee relations. Trade union by their effective working may achieve employee satisfaction. Therefore trade unions help in reducing the rate of absenteeism, labour turnover and developing systematic grievance settlement procedures leading to harmonious industrial relations. Trade unions can thus contribute to the improvements in level of production, productivity and discipline thereby improving quality of work-life.

FUNCTIONS OF TRADE UNIONS :

Trade unions in present era of industrial development, perform two sets of functions: the "Militant Functions and the Fraternal Functions." The trade union is a militant organisation designed to fight for the cause of the workers. One of the main aims of the organisation of workers into trade union is to secure better conditions of work and employment. The trade 49 unions try to fulfill this aim by the method of collective bargaining and negotiations and if they do not succeed in securing their purpose in this manner, they put up a fight with the employers for achieving their end in the form of strikes and boycotts. More recently, the trade unions have started making efforts to secure some share in the profits and also control of the industry. Then, the trade union is also a fraternal association, a benefit organization, providing sickness and accident benefits to the members and supporting them during strikes and lockouts and during the period when they are temporarily out of work. Such financial help to the members is given by the trade unions out of their own funds created through subscriptions by members. Such functions are known as fraternal functions : However, in modern period, the various functions are performed by trade unions as pointed out below:
Social Responsibilities of Trade Unions
i. To educate the rank and file workers so that the traditional agitational role be gradually transformed into one of understanding and co-operation;

ii. To keep the well-being and progress of the society constantly before them by way of refraining from unnecessary strikes work stoppage, go-slow intimidation;

iii. To protect the interests of the consumer which is usually lost sight of in bipartite agreements reached between the parties;

iv. To discharge their role in the success of the schemes for planned economic development of the country, maximizing production and distribution in an equitable manner. According to the first plan document, "for the successful execution of the plan,' the co-operation of the trade unions and employers is indispensable." The Second Plan document also emphasized that, "a strong trade union movement is necessary both for safe guarding the interests of labour and for realizing the targets of production";

v. To adopt themselves to charging social needs and to rise above divisive forces of caste, religion and language and to 53 help in promoting national, social and emotional integration at all levels

vi. To instil in their members a sense of responsibility towards industry and the community. Further they should seek to harmonise the sectional goals of their members with the community interests in the larger good of the society;

23. CITU is a National level Trade Union in India politically affiliated to the Communist Party of India (Marxist) as its trade union wing and is a spearhead of the Indian Trade Union Movement founded in 1970.

Present challenges of the Trade Union Movement in India :

Small Size of Unions:
Though trade unions are of various sizes with thousands of members, yet, most of the unions are still characterized by their small size and small membership. The average membership per union in India is less than 800, as compared with the U.K (17,600) the USA (9,500). Rivalry among the leaders and the Central Organisations has resulted in multiplicity of unions thereby reducing the average membership. It is noteworthy that as the number of unions increases, the total membership does not increase proportionately. If rival unions could be stopped from being evolved, the average size of unions could definitely go up.

Financial Weakness:
Trade unions suffer from financial weakness as the average yearly income of the unions has been rather low and inadequate. The average income has been low not because of the poverty of the workers but because of certain factors namely, workers are apathetic towards trade unions and do not want to contribute out of their hard earned money.
Another method advocated is the introduction of the “Checkoff system,” under which an employer undertakes on the basis of a collective agreement, to deduct union dues from the worker’s pay and transfer the same to the union.
Multiplicity of Trade Unions:
Multiple trade unions are the biggest curse of Indian trade union movement. Existence of many unions each trying to compete with each other on membership drive and securing management support to recognise their union, not only weakens the trade union movement but also cause inter-union rivalry and disunity among the workers.
Leadership Issue:
Another disquieting feature of the trade unions is outside leadership, i.e., leadership of trade unions by persons who are professional politicians and lawyers and have no history of physical work in the industry. In many cases retired persons are also act as leaders ,leadership should be within the industry
Management Attitude:
Management, by and large, take an unhelpful attitude. Unionism is considered by them as an anathema. Union leaders, according to managers are trouble makers. They are there to break the harmony between the management and workers. They restrict the managers; power in decision-making, question their discretion and wisdom and obstruct their “right to manage”. Given this mindset, very often, they find fault with union for all difficulties faced by management; be it on low productivity, low quality, low profitability or lack of good will from customers. No doubt, some union leaders are also responsible for the negative image of their unions because of use of muscle power, money power and militant methods adopted by them which is called “irresponsible unionism”. Managers also take advantage of multiple trade unions and their inter-union rivalry by playing one against another. Another area is the recognition of trade union to become a bargaining agent. Management makes use of the loopholes of the existing labour legislation in with holding or delaying the recognition. Management considers trade union a legal obligation. This does not bring faith and good will.
Statutory Support:
Indian constitution considers formation of association as a fundamental right. Indian Trade Union Act allows any seven workers to join together and form a Trade union. Both give rise these file to formation of multiple trade unions which goes against the very concept of unionism-the unity workers. No central legislation now exists which makes it compulsory for management to recognize more than one unions or not to recognize anyone. This has further weakened the trade union and their bargaining power. The Indian Trade Union Act further allows 50 per cent of officer-bearers from outside the organization and 10 per cent of leadership from outside. This provision resulted politicisation, and remote control of union activities from outside the organisations. Even the “code of discipline” only recommend recognition of trade union as a voluntary action. Recognition of trade union causes rivalry from others who are not recognized. This problem can be tackled by bringing out comprehensive central legislation covering all aspects such as Recognition, Multiplicity, Outside leadership, etc.

Factors affecting workers in Modern World:

1. The unemployment in India is effecting the present day worker, the employer can have his choice of worker as plenty of man power is available with him, so there is a fear in the mind of the worker of losing his job , this fear is only restricted to un organised sectors .
2. Modern day technology is affecting the worker, he has to adopt to the new technology otherwise he may have to lose his job for the youngsters, who have technology savvy.
3. Modernisation is killing the jobs, less man power is required for doing the same job due to technology up gradation. 
4. Privatisation of Government Jobs is a major threat, many of the Government jobs are privatised. 
5. Inflation rate is at 5% , the money value has gone down , the wages are not increasing as much as inflation is increasing .
6. The concept of need based minimum wage is still a dream, the worker is deprived of a proper wages and allowances, as due to competition especially in private industries ,this concept of need based minimum wage is not implemented in spirit of ILO convention.
7. The many jobs in both Government and Private sector are done on contract basis , this phenomena of contract basis is catching fast and very dangerous. 

Conclusion :

Comrades to fight against these policy’s, the both the members of the union / association and the leadership should be more serious in their approach. Now are never , organise and educate each and every worker / employee .
Save our Jobs for better future of our children.
