1. This Federal Executive has come to the unanimous conclusion that, under the given circumstances the settlement reached with the Administration on the 25 points Charter of Demands is the best possible and fully ratify the decision of the JCA to defer the strike.
2. This Federal Executive further direct the NFPE & JCA leadership to take follow up action to get orders released on all the agreed items in a time bound manner.
3. This Federal Executive demand the Secretary, Department of Posts, to arrange another review meeting on the PLI related issues as the decentralization of certain important PLI/RPLI functions to Divisions has been done contrary to the sprit of the discussions held on 01.07.2011. Review meetings may also be arranged with the unions of Civil Wing and Postal Accounts as assured during the final round of discussion.
4. Regarding the formation of the Committee to review the Speed Post hubs and first class hubs (L 1,L 2) the Federal Executive is of the unanimous view that the induction of new technology and consequent changes in the mail processing should not lead to indiscriminate closure/merger of existing RMS Offices and interest of employees should be protected. The delay in public mail should be avoided and speedy delivery of articles should be ensured.
5. The Federal Executive further resolve that if any unilateral violation of the assurances given to the Staff Side take place then NFPE and JCA shall organize agitational programmes

In accordance with instructions contained in said OM, option, if any, for alteration, withdrawal or inclusion of new members is to be given in the month of April each year to DDO or any other designated authority.
2. The Department, vide letter No. 13/01/2010-SR dated 18.02.2010, modified 'letter of authorization' prescribed by the DOPT specifically in order to comply with the directions of the Hon'ble Court of Madras given in Writ Petitions No. 4704-4707 of 1999 and Contempt Petition No. 950/09. The modified 'letter of authorization' was endorsed with signature of Director (SR & Legal) with an objective to rule out the possibility of using the old forms bearing the signature of the employees, as some of the associations had complained about it. The signature of Director (SR & legal) has no relevance in regard to letters of authorization which may be used for change of option or for seeking new membership in the month of April every year.

3.All the 'letter of authorization' whether bearing Director (SR & Legal)'s signature or not, applied during the month of April may be considered as per the standing instructions and in view of the clarification in the preceding paragraph.

Sub: - Introduction of Social Security Pension Scheme – regarding.

Respected Madam,

It is noticed by the Circle Unions that, the Department has introduced a project of payment of Social Security Pensions Scheme of Government of Andhra Pradesh through the Post Offices in Nizamabad and Nalgonda districts. The Circle or Regional authorities did not discuss the pros and corns of the project with the service unions and simply taken a unilateral decision and signed the “Memorandum of Understanding “with out thinking the possibility of implementing the scheme.

It is a fact that, the postal employees including Gramin Dak Sevaks working in Branch offices, Sub offices and Head Offices are facing unbearable problems while implementing “Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme”. The series problems being faced by the staff in conveyance of cash and payment of withdrawals in bulk besides harassment by the state Government authorities like Social Audits / Mandal Parishad Development Officers/ Local Sarpanches.

All the postal employees of both the districts expressed their inability already they are over burdened, for effecting the payments of Social Security Pensions which are to be attended from 1.7.2011.

The views expressed by both the Circle Secretaries during the meeting with the Postmaster General, Hyderabad Region dated 28.6.2011 may kindly be taken in to consideration.

As such, both the service unions request the Postmaster General arrange to drop implementation of the scheme.

Yours faithfully
