NATIONAL FEDERATION OF POSTAL EMPLOYEES
ALL INDIA POSTAL EMPLOYEES UNION GROUP 'C'
NO. CPMG/Targets/Victimization/16. Dated October 27th, 2016
Gujarat circle, Ahmedabad
Namaskar. I convey that staff from different corners are complaining that our Circle didn't declare Diwali as Holiday on 29th and on other hand it will be a matter of "families' resentment" because Diwali is the top:1 festival in Gujarat, waited by families for whole year. No customers are used to come to POs on Diwali. No banks are opened for same work of Gold bond. We will definitely work like volunteered team for real business but in any case, please withdraw instructions and convey to all DHs not to keep any PO open on Diwali.
Staff side also urges for direction to heads of units not to do illusive business and force only own staff under hidden threats for purchadiy gold bond or opening accounts in violation of Dte instructions dated 19-8-15 & 14-3-16 and CO Ahd dated 18-4-16. Huge number of accounts in Rajkot Division and whole region are opened @Rs.20 denominations by staff only. Huge number of passbooks with one entry with hundreds of staff including GDS gives safe passage to commit fraud. Recently one fraud came to light in Rajkot region in which, as heard, such number of passbooks for only one account holder on same date has facilitated fraud. Last year lacs of accounts were opened by splitting and this year such accounts will be closed. Please see how much loss of stationary, manpower and other cost our department will suffer on account of thrust for illusive achievement of targets and also fix responsibility. Last year also such pressure was created by local officers and in Ahmedabad GPO, APY accounts of ineligible postmen staff were forcefully opened by showing their wrong DOB as 18 years age, though they were above 55 years age. We had submitted complaints to Hon. Minister as well as PMO regarding mischievous achievement.No action has been taken against such officer so far. In Gondal dn there are 60 applications for Gold bond..!! But all applications are from staff! Even SSP Rajkot had to open 250 accounts @Rs.20 though he knows that splitting of accounts is not permissible. How sad and ridiculous that we are doing business to our own staff, who under emotional black mailing and fear of victimization by local administration, becomes volunteer to be victim. SP/SSP prays staff that they are forced by their higher officers, so help...help..help. This happens from top to bottom. We are also collecting figures of such splitted accounts and business in staff only and will send it to higher ups and our Hon. minister also for causing a ban on illegal opening of accounts and making our own staff as buyers instead of sellers.
Please cause immediate ban on this type of business.
At this juncture, we suggest to hold meeting with staff side and form unique strategic plan for realistic business in our circle. we promise to extend complete support to administration for climbing new hights in upgradation of public services and generating revenue for department
Please consider, like Assam, for declaration of Diwali as Closed holiday in Gujarat on 29th October as already requedted earlier by us.
