This is cause of our sufferings

From a young member:
Thank you so much sir to raise and forward our voice to the authority.  When department or higher authority understand or agree with second last passage of this letter, surely problems will solve permanently.

My reply:
Until and unless our staff shows unity and readiness for not doing flattering or get afraid of rejecting illegal work like  splitting of accounts or opening fake APY accounts, there can be no improvement. We can give notice for agitation and strike against victimization & non supply of adequate manpower/ computer related equipments but how much of us would follow our call in one voice and one direction?

Many of divisional leaders of various unions need to introspect and access whether they are performing their real role by strong leaderships? Whether each and every act of irregularly, injustice and discrimination is opposed? Whether main leaders work in main office and be in touch with majority of staff? Whether all required items regarding staff problems are taken in writing on letters or agenda in monthly meetings? I am not criticising any individual but we all leaders and members also need a sincere introspection and take corrective measurers. None of us, belonging to any Union, should waste energy in confronting, competing or complaining only. We must build up rock like strong unity, Friends. We must be able to procure 'Trust' of our membership in us. 

 This is cause of our sufferings.

NO. CPMG/Targets/Victimization/16. Dated October 27th, 2016


Chief PMG

Gujarat circle, Ahmedabad

Respected sir,

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 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.

With regards,

Yours sincerely

Rashmin Purohit
