7th Pay Commission Memorandum submitted by NFPE, AIPEU GDS on Gramin Dak Sevaks of Department of Posts
I . GRAMIN DAK SEVAK SYSTEM IS AN ANORCHISM – SCRAP GDS SYSTEM
National Federation of Postal Employees and AIPEU GDS (NFPE) conducted two days strike on 12 &13th Feb 2014 demanding to remit the GDS issues to the Seventh Pay Commission. The Postal department based on the demand has referred the case to DOPT to clarify the 4th Central Pay Commission’s observation in para 1.10 that the expression of Central Govt employees has not been defined based on which a final view over the inclusion of Gramin Dak Sevaks within the purview of 7th CPC becomes possible. The Department has communicated to National Federation of Postal Employees that the demand for inclusion of GDS in the 7th Central Pay Commission has been referred to DOP&T for a decision in the matter.
With due respect and regards we request the Chairman Seventh Pay Commission, to consider the GDS issues which are submitted in details in the chapters following this preface and render justice to this exploited, poor category of employees in the Department of posts as if Justice Talwar has observed and ended his recommendations as ‘The week and down trodden need protection’.
