CS writes to Chief PMG intimating agitational programme to be adopted from Feb 2011

The copy of the letter addressed to Chief PMG, Orissa Circle with copy to all concerned is reproduced below for information of members.
Dated 31.12.2010
Mrs. Hilda Abraham
Chief Postmaster General
Orissa Circle, Bhubaneswar 751001

Respected Madam,
This is for kind information that the issue of upgradation of GP of IPs is kept pending at Directorate level without any favourable action.  The Department has set up a Cadre Restructuring Committee for looking into the career progression aspects of Group C staff. Nothing of the sort is done for IP line officials even as there has been no cadre review for IP line officials since 1981.  The Department has been paying a pittance of not exceeding `40/- a day for arduous nature of invigilation duty without revising the rate since 1972 while other organs of the Govt. like SSC pays not less than `250/- a day for such duty. In Orissa Circle a number of IP posts are vacant and the burden of duties of vacant posts is carried by existing inspectorial staff without any extra remuneration. Even the posts of ASPs are lying vacant for months together. For all these and many more reasons the IP line officials will greet the New Year with a sense of frustration.
The Circle Working Committee of Orissa Circle Branch of this Association met on 05.12.2010 and took note of the discriminatory approach adopted by the Department towards IP cadre officials. As per the resolution passed in the CWC meeting, Orissa Circle Branch of AIAIASP will observe the following.
1.     The members of this Association in Orissa Circle will wear black badge on the first week of every month starting from the month of February 2011 against the apathetic attitude of the Govt. on the issue of upgradation of GP of IPs at par with analogous posts in other Central Govt. Departments. In this connection it is worthwhile to mention that the CHQ of this Association has already issued a letter to Secretary (Posts) on 23.12.2010 informing her of Trade Union Action after 31.01.2011 if Directorate does not finalise the issue of upgradation  of GP of IPs.
2.     The members of this Association in Orissa Circle have started refusing acceptance of the remuneration paid for invigilation duty. They will continue to do so in days to come till the Department has not raised the remuneration at par with the rate paid by SSC.

This is for kind information.

     With regards and New Year Greetings,
Yours faithfully,
(B B Mohanty)
Circle Secretary
Copy (through e-mail) to:
1.     Sri P K Bisoi, PMG Sambalpur Region for kind information
2.     Sri S K Kamila, PMG Berhampur Region for kind information
3.     All Divisional Heads (By Name) in Orissa Circle for kind information.
4.     Sri Roop Chand, General Secretary, AIAIASP, CHQ, New Delhi 110 001 for information

Well done,
I appreciate your action. Hope other Circle secretaries will follow your steps.The upgradation of GP of IPOs should be politicized. Voice of injustice and descrimination must reach to PMO/PRESIDENT & LOK SABHA/RAJYASBHA.
