Gramin Dak Sevak are Backbone of India Post, they are holder of Civil Post but their pay is as a MGNREGS wages labur. No one consider this post as a permanent post, one one take any action to do them permanent. Their service condition is so poor and this is going to poorer compared to postal employee.
Recently postal department issued a order to implement the GDS Pay Committee Report 2016 on 25.06.2018. After cheeking this said implement order no one told that this the Kamalesh Chandra Committee Report. Not a single recommendation implemented except the proposed new TRCA slab. In this situation GDS are disappointed to see this because they were in strike from 22nd may to 6th June 2018, they lose 16 days TRCA to implement this committee report. So, it is a big question “Who is Responsible for the this Condition of GDS?”
GDS unions, AIPEU GDS-NFPE, AIGDSU, NUGDS are blamed to the Government of India and Government pass this responsibility to DOP. A union of Postal Department called BMS is the media to pass this responsibility by look into the Government. But the Garmin Dak Sevak of India are blamed the unions for the this Condition of GDS.
This the analytical issue that Who is Responsible for the this Condition of GDS. Because no one take this issue seriously to resoled the issue they think GDS are playing thing so they enjoyed this Game.
So, here we try to understand that the responsibility of GDSs Union, Government of India and Department of Post. Because they are the player of this sensible game.
Responsibility of Government :-
Government setup One man committee headed by Sri Kamlesh Chandra, Retired Member, Postal Services Board was set up by the Government of India vide Ministry of Communications, Department of Posts’ Resolution No. 17-13/2013-GDS dated 19.11.2015 for examining the conditions of service and emoluments and other facilities available to the Gramin Dak Sevaks(GDS). The committee had submitted its report to the Government on 24.11.2016.
The committee had submitted its report to the Government on 24.11.2016 but government take more than 6 month to published the said report in India Post website by the pressure of Unions. Union took may program to published this report but they failed. Finally they called two days Strike than government published it in website.
After consider the recommendation of committee report government kept it in hand. Many program of action has been taken by GDS Unions but government do not take any action to implement this recommendation. There had not any update that where is the report of committee. What was the present status of GDS pay committee.
Lastly GDS unions called Indefinite Strike from 22nd may 2018. After continuing 16th days strike Government approved this recommendation at cabinet on 6th June 2018. Actually govt. has not any intention to Implement GDS Committee Report. Committee submitted it’s report with in his schedule time but Government took 19th month to implement this report and GDS lose their 30th month’s Revised TRCA from 01.01.2016.
Responsibility of Department :-
When committee submitted it’s report to the Department of Post to review they clear it that they received the report. In October 2016, Union told to the committee to consider the enhanced bonus to the GDS. Committee recommend to the department to pay bonus to the GDS as revised rate of CG employee bonus.
In this case department take some time to pay revised bonus to the GDS. For this case union has a big role to got bonus ceiling of Rs. 7000/-.
At the last time Department took some time after approval of committee report at the cabinet because cabinet approved committee report on 6th June 2018 and department implement it on 25th June 2018. But when released implementation order, there was nothing any recommendation of GDS Committee except Revised TRCA Slab.
Responsibility of Union :-
In this game Unions take several program of action to implement the positive recommendation of GDS Committee. But they do only program of action they failed to know that what is the intention of government or department. GDS were in Indefinite Strike from 22nd may to 6th June 2018 actively.
Union again failed to know that what was in the approval report. If they know that then can continue this Indefinite Strike until the implementations of positive recommendation of GDS Committee Report.
After analysis the hole situations of GDS Pay Committee and the role of Government, Department and Union. Now you can realized that Who is Responsible for the this Condition of GDS? but one thing that if Union take any decision to do strike in favor of Gramin Dak Sevak, they have to notice only one demand “Regularization of GDS”
If union fight with only one demand of GDS then Government will not any option to consider except this. Best of Luck.
