CIRCLE UNION EXTENDS AND ASSURES FULL FLEDGED HELP TO ALL OF THEM IRRESPECTIVE OF THEIR MEMBERSHIP IN ANY UNION
There is a big fraud case at Ahmedabad GPO in which investigation by the department is going on and we should not discuss here any issues in detail about the case itself but it was unfortunate and disheartening to know that six employees in PA cadre has been suspended on the miserable eve of 28.02.2011. Com.Shrimali Ex.D/S of AIPEU Gr.C telephonically informed C/S about the incident and requested to rush to Ahmedabad. Accordingly, C/S moved directly from Bhuj to Ahmedabad and through out the day heard all concerned employees and so many representatives of staff members of Ahmedabad GPO. There are 4 members of NAPE out of 6 placed under suspension but the C/S assured that “the time has changed now; even at divisional level we remain united for safeguard of our employees and struggle for common burning problems. We will extend full fledged help and guidance to all of them equally till end of their struggle. We see all of you as postal employee and not as a member of this or that union”. Shri.G.K.Waghela, D/S of NAPE and senior leader was also present for some time and joined discussions in the matter. Circle Union assured that sufficient help will be given to innocent employees.
There are so many depositors who launched a police complaint that they have not received the MIS accounts’ maturity amount and the agent has credited their cheques in SB accounts and then the amounts appears to have been withdrawn. Initially it appears that Supervisors are different, Counter PAs are different but agent and modus operandi is same in the fraud case.
There are also several RD Premature closure cases under investigation and much painful details would be coming out with hanging sword on the concerned employees.
FRIENDS, WHY WE PUT BLIND TRUST ON AGENTS? WHY WE DON’T LEARN LESSONS FROM PAST CASES? WHY WE ALLOW AGENT’S WITNESS THOUGH NOT PERMITTED BY RULES? WHY WE DON’T ISSUE CHEQUE FOR PAYMENT AND HAND OVER CASH TO AGENTS OUT OF RULE?
We commit certain mistakes and become sufferer though we don’t indulge in any fraudulent transaction. It becomes very difficult to prove our innocence even if everyone may know that we have not taken any unauthorized money. Deesa, Vadodara, Ahmedabad GPO…we need to awaken ourselves and adopt all precautionary measures by following important provisions of rules in that regard. We are under heavy pressure of work, certain wrong practices goes on in several offices for years together and no supervisor or SBCO objects such wrong practices and at last when any such event of fraud takes place, we become victim and marked as ‘subsidiary offender’. No head of the office face trouble for not ensuring that no such wrong practice goes on in his office. We will extend full co operation to employees in the matter but now time has ripened to understand our responsibility for avoiding any fraud in our office.
POT OF AHMEDABAD GPO FULL OF MYSTERIES.
WHO WILL BREAK IT?
WHAT WILL COME OUT?
From the tittle-tattle and general debate by the staff, it was very surprising to know several unfounded but amazing details concerning Ahmedabad GPO and suddenly we felt that the pot of Ahmedabad GPO is full of mysteries and several things may come out if some one break it!
There was some Audit Objection in Para 18 of AO/ICO in 2007-08 regarding credit of huge amount of default which was more than commission paid to an Agent!! About 40 written statements/replies were obtained from concerned staff but all of them were word to word same! It is expected that at that time serious action against defaulting agent would have not facilitated him to do further irregularity.
In 2008 Date stamp of SB branch and in 2009 Date stamp of Inquiry branch were lost! Is it correct that no appropriate action as per rule were taken? Figures of Philatelic stamp are also missing. If really no action taken, such stamps can be used by any one for any purpose.
Computer systems were stolen at GPO and old CPU were returned back in administrative office! Some CPU had burnt out by fire which were having SBCO data!!
So many further things which may flash at subsequent stage!!
These are glimpses of chitchat of staff but something must be incredible and in close proximity of reality.
