To
            The Secretary,
            Department of Posts’
            Dak Bhawan, New Delhi-110 001


 Sub:  Settlement of Pay Commissions related issues: regarding

Madam,

1.         The Finance ministry has constituted an implementation cell which will function as the Sectt. of the empowered Committee headed by  Cabinet Secretary in which  Secretary , Department of Post is also a member.

2.         As per the minutes of implementation cell held on 2nd February, Nodal Officers from our Department has not attended, it is reliably learnt.

3.         The implementation cell has fixed two weeks time for submission of any Departmental specific  Modification on 7th CPC recommendations but it is  learnt  that Nodal Officer appointed  by the  Department is out of Delhi and will be returning after 12th February , by that time, there will be  4 days time left  for cutoff date fixed by implementation cell..

4.         Further minutes says that any modification recommended by the Secretary Posts should be approved by the Minister (C) also before submission to implementation cell. We feel that if action is not taken on war footing it will be impossible for the Postal Department to submit modification proposal to the implementation cell after completing all the above formalities before the cutoff date

5.         Regarding  Cadre Restructuring  also if orders  are not issued before implementation of Pay Commissions report, there is every chance of returning the proposal by DOP&T  for  resubmission after signing fresh  agreement  taking in to consideration the 7th CPC  orders issued  by the Government.

            In view of the above we request you to kindly act immediately to safe guard the interests of Postal Employees without giving room for any delay or omission or commission on the part of Postal Department.

            We have decided certain agitational programmes on which we will be giving a separate memorandum on 11th March 2016.
Yours faithfully
