The reasons for the protest week& Present status of the committees.

Dear  colleagues,

You are aware FNPO and its affiliated unions have decided to observe protest week from 12th to 19th December 2016.

The reasons for the protest week:

On 30th June 2016 & 06th July 2016 Group Of Ministers called our NJCM leaders and gave assurance that a High-Level Committee will examine the 7th CPC issues, mainly the Minimum Wage and Multiplying Factor. Based  on the assurance, the JCM Constituent deferred the Strike action on 06th July 2016.

Accordingly, the following committees were constituted .

1)  Committee to examine the 7th CPC issues mainly the Minimum Wage and Multiplying Factor: The committee met once and the outcome of the meeting not known.

2)  Allowance Committee: Met once they discussed HRA & other allowances, but no commitment from the official side. Committee chairman conducted the meeting with all Departments. On 03/11/2016, a meeting was conducted under the Chairmanship of Finance Secretary & Secretary (Expenditure) with regard to postal department. During the meeting India Post Chairman, Postal board, Member (P), DDG (Esst.), DDG (P) & Director (Esst.) were present. Secretary Generals of the three Federations represented the staff side.

The Department of Posts submitted a proposal for retaining the  following allowances.

·       Fixed Monetary Compensation to Postman.

·       Special Allowance to PO & RMS Accountants.

·       Cycle allowance to Postman.

·       Cash handling and Treasury allowance.

·       Headquarter allowance

·       Fixed Medical allowance.

·       Overtime Allowance

After a long discussion on the revision of above allowances, the Finance Secretary  asked to 
furnish the quantum of Fund required by the Department of Post to meet the Expenditure. Our departmental officers who were present at the meeting agreed to give the required fund details. According to our information, our department has sent the details to the Finance Secretary.

Let us hope that Finance Ministry will agree to our Departments proposal.

3) Anomaly committee was constituted department vice.

4) NPS Committee: According to our information the committee is constituted but no official information.

5) Pension option committee: To examine the feasibility to implement option -1 

Now four months have lapsed, we are yet to know the committees decision on the issues of Minimum Wage, Pay Fixation Formula, Allowances and National Pension system (NPS) etc. as on date

. Besides these, after implementing the 7th CPC (only pay), the Government is accepting all the recommendations affecting the employees one by one such as the benchmark for MACP from “GOOD” to VERY GOOD” which has created unrest in the minds of every employee.

FNPO cannot be a mere silent spectator after reading the employees mind, therefore FNPO and its affiliated unions have decided to observe protest week from 12th to 19th December 2016.

We request all Divisional / Circle secretaries to go through the programs and make it a grand success.

November 28, 2016

The Chairman / Managing Director/ Chief Executive Officer,

State Cooperative Banks/ District Central Cooperative Banks

Dear Sir,
Withdrawal of cash from bank deposit accounts - Relaxation

It has been reported that certain depositors are hesitating to deposit their money into bank accounts in view of the current limits on cash withdrawals from accounts.

2. As it is impeding active circulation of currency notes, it has been decided, on careful consideration, to allow withdrawals of deposits made in current legal tender notes on or after November 29, 2016 beyond the current limits; preferably, available higher denomination bank notes of ₹ 2000 and ₹ 500 are to be issued for such withdrawals.

Yours faithfully,
(P Vijaya Kumar)

Chief General Manager
