Letter to CO regarding uniform approach in the matter of LGO candidates


NO.CO/lgo/2014.                         Date: 28.4.2014

Hon.Chief PMG

Subject: Regarding uniform approach to the matter of inhouse training and appointment LGO candidates

Respected sir,
Namaskar. It has been a point of discussion and puzzle in minds of successful candidates in LGO exam in Gujarat circle this year because there in no uniform treatment to them in various divisions.

For example, candidates in BK division and Ahmedabad city division has been imparted In-house training and also appointed as PAs . In Rajkot region, SP Kachchh and Bhavnagar imparted in-house training and other SPOs like SP Junagadh are of the opinion that in-house training can be given only under clear orders of the Circle Office.

I urge to take this issue into consideration and issue such instructions to all concerned that a uniform proceedure may prevail in the Circle.

This may be attended on priority.

with regards,

Yours sincerely

Rashmin Purohit

Pl clear Quota to all higher ups before 30 April 2014

Dear Comrades,
I am receiving letters and frequent telephonic reminders from CHQ and Federation regarding clearing outstanding quota up to 31.3.14 

A letter has already been sent by CHQ to all DS.If any DS has not received, pl contact CS urgently. You know April is a grace month and each division has to remit quota to get credentials in next AIC. This is very important. Pl do not invite action as per constitutional provisions as CHQ directs to stop payment of subscription to defaulting divisions till quota is cleared.

Circle union is very much upset regarding slackness in remittance of quota by divisions. Calculations given to all during CWC meetings but most of divisions are sending lump sum amount. It is hereby made clear that by delaying remittances, no division can be allowed to skip from clearing arrears. You have received the amounts and a prescribed part is to be remitted without reminder and delay.

Circle union requests to take this seriously and to clear entire outstanding amounts before 30/4/14 failing which circle office bearers will personally visit divisions for the purpose.

Up to 30June 2013
Dn.14.50 /Circle.8.00/CHQ.6.00/NFPE.1.50/

Good Friday


It was a rousing and bright day on 16th April 2014 when officials working in Postmaster’s cadre called upon Circle Secretary and proposed that all of them in Gujarat Circle desires to come under one umbrella of All India Postal Employees Union Group ‘C’. They informed that most of them are already member of AIPEU Gr.’C’ but few are members in other unions and they all desire to be united under our union to ensure that their problems and pains are given appropriate hearing and representation.

A meeting was held at Lal Darwaja PO on 16th April 2014 evening which was attended by most of the officials working in Postmasters cadre working at Ahmedabad. Mainly Com.N.K.Nayak SPM Lal Darwaja, H.K.Bhattacharya SPM SA Roza, V.V.Purohit SPM Saijpur Bogha, M.R.Parmar SPM Naroda IE, K.K.Paynikar RPM Rajpur Gomtipur, R.C.Panchal SPM Isanpur, D.G.Rathod SPM Sola HBC attended the meeting.

Com.M.G.Dulera Circle FS, Dinesh Patel President P3 Ahd City dn., N.D.Patel DS P3 Ahd City Dn and other office bearers Com.C.M.Nayak, V.W.Cristian, Malli and others also attended the meeting.

All officials working in Postmaster’s Cadre discussed about problems faced by them and expressed that most of them are members of AIPE Union Group ‘C’ but if any official is member of any other union, all will first of all become united under banner of AIPEU. They also discussed about few problems about non preparation of Gradation List by C.O., ambiguity in names of offices identified for posting of officials of PM’s Cadre, their postings at distant offices and need to retransfer them to parent divisions as and when possible etc.

Circle Secretary also discussed at length about all features taken in discussion together with promotional avenues and inclusion of various points to be taken up before 7th Pay Commission through a Memorandum to be submitted by the CHQ and Federation.

All officials filled up required forms for becoming members of AIPEU Group C and it was promised that they will contact all officials of Postmaster’s Cadre in whole Gujarat Circle and if any official is not a member of AIPE Union Group ‘C’, they will manage to ask them to become member and resign from other union before 30th April 2014. All active members should take this task in their hand to enroll new members.

 The Circle Secretary greeted and welcomed all and assured for all co operation to them.

As a beginning a letter has been addressed to CPMG Ahmedabad today which is also placed here.

This is a good beginning and it is surely half done. Circle Secretary appeals all Divisional Secretaries to enroll new members as many officials as possible before crucial date i.e. 30.4.14.

Gujarat Circle

No.CO/PMCadreII/Vadodara/14.15                                                           Dated: April 16, 2014

The Chief Postmaster General
Gujarat Circle,
Ahmedabad 380 001


 Request for causing equality in approach and adherence to Directorate orders for implementing orders of posting of PO HSG-I Generel line cadre to the cadre of GCS Group B (Non-Gazzated) Poastmaster Grade-III on regular basis.

C.O.Ahmedabad Memo No. STA 44-22/PM/Gr.III/2013 dated 27.8.13 and R.P.Vadodara Memo No. STA/2-32/PM Gr III dated 03.09.13.

Respected sir,
I bring to your notice that four officials have been posted to the cadre of GCS Group B (Non-Gazzated) Poastmaster Grade-III on regular basis vide R.O. Vadodara orders dated 3.9.13 based on C.O. Ahd orders dated 27.8.13. Para 6 of the order itself reads as under:

‘As provided in the Directorate Comm. Option for Postmaster Cadre once exercised is final and no reversion to the parent cadre is permissible’

Official at Sr.No.1 has not been relieved so far by the administration of R.O. Rajkot. On our informal  submissions during last bimonthly meeting it was informed to us that the official has represented to the Directorate and therefore not relieved!! This is not a convincing state of dealing with such cases in a casual manner. In all over our Gujarat circle all officials in Postmaster cadre has been forced to go and resume at the place of their posting in view of same instructions of the Directorate which equally apply to this order and said official. Submission of a representation cannot justify non relief of the official. Unequal and partial favour to one and force to follow Directorate’s instruction in cases of others is not fair and  judicious. If in one case a relief arrangement is stopped only on ground of a representation of the official to higher authority, same benefit will be sought for by all other similarly situated officials in the Circle.

It is therefore urged to ask concerned administrative authority to adhere to the Directorate orders and implement the said order without any pretext and set example of equality in administrative action.

With regards,

Yours faithfully

Circle Secretary

Gujarat Circle
No.CO/PMCadre/Gradation list/14.15                                                       Dated: April 17, 2014

The Chief Postmaster General
Gujarat Circle,
Ahmedabad 380 001

Circulation of Gradation list of Postmaster Cadre officials of Gujarat Circle and Circulation of list of offices identified for Postmasters cadre in Gujarat Circle.

Respected sir,
There has been a demand of concerned employees to represent following problems:

1.     Gradation List of the officials of PM Cadre has not been prepared so far though a period of two and half year has passed. It may be prepared and circulated at the earliest.
2.     There has been a lot of discrepancy in the names of offices identified for Postmaster Cadre Grade I and II as observed in information sought for under RTI by some officials. For making a clear picture, a list of offices identified for the purpose as on today may be circulated.

3.     In Gujarat Circle, so many posts remain vacant due to declining of the promotion after passing examination! Statistics of last examinations may be referred which would show huge number of candidates passing the examination and then declining. It is because of postings at distant places. In original orders also it was recommended by the Directorate to post them to the offices of choice as far as possible. Unfortunately there are so many posts remaining vacant. A positive review of the position may be undertaken and it may be considered to post the officials at their choice places as far as possible.

4.     Few officials in first posting orders had to resume at the offices of posting at distant paces and on application, they were replied that their requests would be considered on passing of new candidates in future. Actually no request for posting back to parent division has been considered so far. It is requested to keep this aspect into consideration as and when feasible as assured.

Urging immediate action on 1 and 2 above,

With regards,

Yours sincerely

Circle Secretary

14th April..Dr.B.R.Ambedkar birth anniversary

Dr. B. R. Ambedkar: An Indefatigable Defender of Human Rights

Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar was born as the fourteenth child of Mahar parents, Ramji and Bhimabai, on 14 April 1891 at Mhow, in present-day State of Madhya Pradesh. The Mahars are considered low- caste and treated as untouchables (Dalits) by higher-caste Hindus. They are mainly found in the State of Maharashtra.

The father and grandfather of Ambedkar served in the army and were of well-to-do family. But the stigma of being members of Mahar community caused their social oppression in a caste-ridden society.

Ambedkar had a bitter taste of discriminatory treatment due his caste at an early age. He and his brother had to carry gunny bags to sit on inside the classroom because they were not allowed to sit on classroom chairs. They were denied drinking water facilities, and excluded from games and mixing with other children. Even teachers would not check their notebooks for fear of "pollution." Thus sowed the seeds of discontentment about the Hindu social system in the life of Ambedkar.

He did his early education in Satara in Maharashtra State and then moved on to Bombay. In 1912, he passed his B. A. examination with distinction from the prestigious Elphinstone College with the scholarship and encouragement from the Maharaja of Baroda State. In 1913, with a condition that he would serve the Baroda State for ten years, he was chosen by Maharaja of Baroda State for higher studies at Columbia University in the USA. This was followed with a  trans-Atlantic shift to the United Kingdom where he studied at the University of London. While studying abroad, he mixed with students of various nationalities and races, which was an eye- opener for him.

He joined the Union Cabinet of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru during the 1946-1951 period. He resigned on 27 September 1951 to protest the deferment of the discussion in the parliament of the Hindu Code Bill supposedly due to the coming 1952 elections. Ambedkar saw the Bill as a very important reform of Hindu law, with reform proposals on marriage, divorce, and monogamy.

Despite failing health, he plodded on with his advocacy for the cause of the Dalits. He came to Nagpur in October 1956 for his conversion to Buddhism and a couple of months thereafter on 8 December 1956 breathed his last.

A good begining and Divisional Conference of Panchmahal dn at Godhra

Divisional Conference of Panchmahal Dn was held on Sunday 13th April, 2014. 

On one hand it was a painful day on the history of our country as on 13th April 1919,  people of India were shocked by Jaliyawala bag's mass killing at Amritsar.

It was, Mahavir Janma Jayanti on the day of conference which recalls lessons of peace and non violence by life and preachings of Mahavir Swami, 24th and last Jain 'Tirthankar'.

If we look at postal employees of Panchmahal division, it prima facie appears that entire staff is under threat and fear of very harsh and uncertain disciplinary action upon them. There is no local leader from any union who could stand up with courage and confidence to support innocent staff members who are victimized in the name of subsidiary offender and contributory responsibility in a fraud case. All are like sighless and wounded soldiers. Most of the staff were member of NUPE but unfortunately there appears no concrete assistance and help to staff of this division.

We never intend to interfere into administrative process of investigation in a fraud case and cross our limitation as a trade union but, based  on discussions of members held during divisional conference, it primarily appeares that there are premature, discriminating and very harsh action on staff members. The administration is more interested in forcing recovery of big amounts from pockets of staff then holding judicious and immediate investigation. In so many cases, staff was orally put under pressure and fear, forced to credit huge amount voluntarily (!!), amounts were credited and then disciplinary actions were initiated under rule 16. In identical cases where amounts are not credited, disciplinary action under rule 14 have been initiated. 

It becomes a case for study for us to see following details:

How many officials credited what amount voluntarily before issue of charge sheet I.e. disciplinary action and who told them to do so.

How many officials were charge sheeted and what amount of recovery has been imposed upon them and what amount has been recovered so far and what total amount would be finally recovered as a punitive action.

How many claim cases have been settled and pending with the department.

What are allegations and what is punishment in various cases.

As a Circle union we decided to study whole material and turn up with all possible help and assistance to innocent staff. Union has never supported any culprits and ill doers. But it will be our responsibility to help innocent employees of this division who looks forward in search of any help like a thusrty man searches a drop of water from sand in desert.

It was pleasant to meet Senior comrade. Hassan who is the only source of help and guidance in this division.

Com.M.G.Dulera Circle F.S. and Com. M.K.Pandya DS Kheda & Circle office bearers also attended the conference. Wee look towards many young friends who attended this conference. They are future of trade union movement. We request them to come on and be united to safeguard postal employees against any injustice and victimization.

List of newly elected body will be placed later on here.

We congratulate staff for holding a very meaningful conference. We also greet Com. Bamania for taking constant pains in arranging this event and also very nice kathiyawadi Lunch.

A call from heart....

Dear Comrades,
You may see a memorandum given to PMG Rajkot in a bimonthly meeting held on 31st March 2014. We insisted upon permission to all Divisional Secretaries to remain present and provide accurate feedback in the meeting on the spot. It proved to be a very meaningful and fruitful meeting.

I request and call upon all Divisional Secretaries and Circle union office bearers of Vadodara region as well as HQ region to send list of problems and pending issues of their divisions including personal cases. We can study and prepare memorandum and arrange meetings with respective PMG/DPS.

If you remain silent and deal with issues orally, then members will be loosers.

In this month, we need to enroll maximum possible new members. Pl let all staff know about websites of our Federation, CHQ and Circle. Pl show them all publications of our union to know our great and dedicated leaders at all levels. Pl issue circulars in Gujarati language regarding various issues in brief studying our magazines.

Dear Comrades, generation is changed. We can't stand where we are. We need to go ahead and climb new goals in favour of our employees. Please please spare time and take care of the points discussed here.


Brotherly yours ever,

Rashmin Purohit




No. RO/RJ/2014                                                                                               31.03.2014


PO Building of Shihor is in worst condition and there is seriez of correspondence by the administration as well as union on the issue. The building is in such a dangerous condition that the life of our employees working there are under threat. More over wiring and broken roof is always hanging as death call on the heads of employees. Officers of Civil wing has also visited this office and considered it as the most dangerous condition. Instead of making correspondence between authorities and going in to lengthy procedures, immediate remedial action is required to be taken in the matter considering seriousness of the matter.

Similarly building of Bhavnagar Anandnagar, Bhavnagar Chitra and Bhavnagar Kumbharwad are also in worst and dangerous conition and requires immediate repairs or shifting on top priority. The administrative authorities are not at all taking such issues into consideration and the staff remains under constant threat.

Posts of HSG I Postmaster Bhavnagar HO, HSG II of Botad and Mahuva and LSG Posts are lying vacant which resultantly becomes burden on PA cadre particularly when the division is facing acute shortage of staff as total more than 80 PAs are short. So far as the Post of PM Bhavnagar HO is concerned, it is required to fill up on top priority considering quantum of responsibilities and quality of work is concerned.

Two PAs are taken on deputation from Bhavnagar HO since long. Considering shortage of staff faced by operative office, it is required to terminate deputations very urgently.


It is very sad to point out that the Divisional Head is in habit of using very bad and abusing words in his general conversations as if it is a tradition for him. The female staff feels very shameful situation when hears such words. It is required to control this officer.

SP Porbandar is very harsh in the matter of dealing leave cases. Even in case of medical certificates granted by Civil Hospital, he stops pay of the official. There are three or more cases. More over the SP personally goes to the doctors and requests them not to grant medical certificates. Correspondences are also made with the medical authorities in the matter asking them not to grant medical certificate. Such overwhelming enthusiasm of the SP Porbandar is required to be tuned off. There are aos news reports regarding his habit of misbehavior. He says that he has pleased the regional head so any complaint against him will not be heard!! It appears that the behavior of the SP Porbandar is irresponsible and novish.

SP Porbandar refuses to discuss old pending items in formal monthly meeting. He does not show old items with progress report in minutes as per rules. More over he allows only one official and that only Divisional Secretary in the meetings though total three officials are permissible as per rule. Today also he knows that the Divisional Secretary has sought for CL for attending meeting with PMG Rajkot and he fixed date of monthly meeting just today at 4 pm. As such he cuts trade union facilities and required to be strongly instructed.

In a very surprising case, one shri.I.U.Detha offg. SPM Manavadar who is recently considered for regular promotion to the cadre of LSG General line,  has refused the promotion due to health problems. He is asked to work as PA in the same office under his junior!! The official is ready to continue as offg. SPM Manavadar and there is no ground to ask him to work as PA only because he refused promotion. We understand that if any official on regular promotion resumes in the office, he can be asked to work as PA under him but in this case the SP at his own whim asked the official to work as PA under his junior. It is requested to ask SP Porbandar to do justice and act according to rules and procedures.

The ASP HQ is in habit of dominating staff by issuing suspension orders to Postman/Mail overseer. He uses his position for personal ego. After suspension, he reinstates officials without any further action. This style of pressurizing staff is quite irregular. In one case an official was suspended and reinstated in a week but even after lapse of about one year no charge sheet is issued. The intention of the ASP to put subordinate staff under fear. Previously also, CS P3 and Circle union office bearers had to visit Porbandar to represent against misbehavior and unwarranted dominance of this ASP. There were some representation by the female staff also against him. Though there are personal cases and the officials would represent their cases but the approach of ASP needs a close watch. We demand that he should be shifted else where to save staff from his bias attitude.

As and when any problem is with the staff, they need to meet the Divisional head. The SP Porbandar is not allowing any staff to meet him. The ASP has no powers and there is no meaning of meeting him. There is no justification for avoiding any staff to meet him. It is his moral duty to hear problems of the staff working under him. He may be instructed suitably.


Cases for de-quarterization of SPMs quarters at Chela PO and Digvijay gram PO are pending since long and therefore it is required to process the cases on priority.

PO buildings of Jamnagar Digvijay Plot, Patel Colony PO and Salaya PO are in quite damaged condition and staff is working under threat of any casualty. The matter has been taken up at divisional level and under correspondence with RO but no action is being taken and it is therefore required to shift the said POs to another safe and suitable buildings as early as possible.

SP Jamnagar is forcing staff to attend meetings and melas on Sundays/holidays by creating illusive picture as is the staff is willing for attending. It is very sad to expoit, suppress and manage staff to become silent victims only for the purpose of using them as tools to fulfil personal ego and enhancing figures. Please call for statistical information about number of GDS employees whose PL Bonus was not paid for months together in 2012.13 and 2013-14 with dates of release of PL Bonus. Pl also call for figures of number of employees whose pay were withheld for forcing achievement of targets. This is miserable situation to crush the employees for displaying success of the administrator! This is not case of one division. Most of the Divisional heads in Rajkot region are exploiting staff excessively showing fear. They also show fear of displeasure of PMG and severe action! Such approach is required to be controlled.

It is very sad that there is no arrangement of pure and cold drinking water at Jamnagar HO. It is required to provide RO system with cooling facility on priority basis. This is basic amenity to ensure hygienic drinking water.

A software for recording in CC TV Camara is required to be provided for safety purpose.


Most of the computer systems are required to be checked and reassessed because systems are not working properly and it results into slow and poor working. More over a case for condemnation of 4 PCs has already been sent to RO Rajkot before one year but there is no action. In the era of total computerization such slackness in attending such problems with technology is highly disadvantageous to public service and demoralizing staff.

Special increment for achieving excellence in sports is pending in case of all officials of Rajkot region. It is required to take up the case urgently as it is pending since February 2012.

Retirement benefits of one Shri.J.C.Rathod SPM Bhachau Kachchh division has been withheld for no specific reason. In a report of Inquiry officer his name was noted as Subsidiary offender. No CLIR of the case has been carried out. If report of the IO is the basis for withholding retirement benefit, then name of Shri.N.R.Khoja Ex.ASP was also cited as S.O. in this case at par with this Shri. Rathod. Such benefit of Shri. Khoja has not been withheld. Such partiality should be avoided and all amounts of Shri. Rathod should be released.

Correspondence of unrecognized unions are not to be attended and their letters are not to be submitted to subordinate offices for reports as per rules on the subject but correspondence of CS Bhartiya Union is being irregularly attended by the RO. The CS BPEF has also retired from service in February 2013 and he was elected as CS four years back so he can not be taken as CS after lapse of 4 years of election. Please stop attending any correspondence from him.

PO Building of Madhapar SO is in very dangerous condition and even a low jerk of earthquake can fall down this building which is in EQ Zone area. This is the best (No.1) revenue earning office in the whole circle. Whatever the procedure required, it should be completed in time bound manner. The divisional head has transferred the item taken at divisional level in September 2010 to RO for action. If the administration has no trust on staff side, it is advisable to send some expert civil engineer to this office and obtain the opinion. We cannot understand who would be responsible for safety of staff working in such deadly building!

At Mandvi MDG as well Postal Colony of Mandvi, maintenance has been carried out by the contractor before six months. The quality of work was poor and not as per conditions of contract and therefore SPM Mandvi MDG has not given Satisfactory report which is a requirement for making payments to contractor. More over SPM Mandvi has submitted a report of “Dissatisfactory work” to the SP Kachchh division. The report of SPM was also forwarded to RO Rajkot. It is surprising that the report of SPM was not given any cognizance and all payments were made to the contractor! It is required to investigate this matter from vigilance point of view.

The Lane cable and few electricity cables at Bhuj HO and Mandvi MDG are are in worst condition and requires immediate replacement to avoid any casualty. Quotation for  Mandvi SO has been sent to RO before 18 months and for Bhuj also quotations are obtained. It is required that the administration side attends such issues with more care and interest considering that it is not only the function to obtain business!!! Administration also need to take care of basic amenities of the staff and service conditions.

MIS incentive bills of more than 10 Post offices are pending at Kachchh division. The offices were selected as per rules for applicability of incentive but when the time comes for sanction of bills, the administration closes eyes. It is requested to ask SP Kachchh to clear incentive bills of the offices which were selected as admissible for incentive as per norms prescribed by the department.

There is heavy staff shortage at Rajkot HO. There are so many officials deputed at R.O. Rajkot from operative offices. Separate recruitment is also being done for administrative offices. It is requested to terminate deputation of staff from RO Rajkot as early as possible


There are four officials of PA cadre deputed to Divisional Office from Gondal HO. More over one PA has been deputed in the name of work for ‘help desk’. It is requested to issue clear order to SP Gondal to relieve all officials on deputation at divisional office considering fact that Gondal HO itself is facing acute shortage of staff as 17 PAs are short.

Case of Shri.B.S.Bashia PA Jetpur for medical claim in emergency situation has been rejected. This is a justified case and requires review.
