Recommendation: - The committee carefully considered the demand for treating the Gramin Dak Sevaks as civil servants at par with other regular employees for all purposes, and noted the following:

(a) GDS are Extra-Departmental Agents recruited by Department of Posts to serve in rural areas.

(b) As per the Recruitment Rules the minimum educational qualification for recruitment to this post is class X.

(c) GDS are required to be on duty only for 4 to 5 hours a day under the terms and conditions of their service.

(d) The GDS are remunerated with Time Related continuity Allowance (TRCA) on the pattern of pay scales for regular Government employees plus DA on pro-rata basis.

(e) A GDS must have other means of income independent of his remuneration as a GDS to sustain himself and his family.

Government of India has so far held that GDS is outside the Civil Service of the Union and shall not claim to be at par with the Central Government Employees. The Supreme Court Judgment also states that GDS are only holder of Civil posts but not civilian employees. The Commission endorses this view and therefore has no recommendation with regard to GDS.

Also The Military Service Pay is having so much of disparity between Jawans and Officers. One Jawan is drawing 5200 and Officer is 15600. Heavy disappointment.

Is there that the bullet distinguish when it hit a soldier or an Officer. Is this the analysis they have done for the last two years.

What about MSP? Why it is not equal for all soldiers? Why officers are getting this much hike? I don't know why they forget about below level soldier always? Why so much gap? Main thing should be done on priority that is same msp and da calculation should be like 4th CPC. Then only gap will be reduce to some extent.. Please raise voice.. Always upper limit get increase and forget about lower level ..

7th CPC has attempted to justify their recommendation on the basis of misplaced facts. One such example is to deprive upgradation to Asst. Employment Officers and Sub Regional Employment Officers in Ministry of Labour & Employment,the Commission has taken shelter of deliberate misplaced fact that these officers are recruited through Staff Selection Commission contrary to the fact that these Officers are recruited through UPSC. This is against law of natural justice.

The MACP for non-gazetted administrative posts should be changed into Promotional Basis ATLEAST ONE POINT OF TIME AT THE LEVEL FROM GROUP-B NON-GAZETTED POST TO GROUP-B GAZETTED POST instead of just increase in grade pay. Many seniormost employees who have already put more than 20, 30, 40 years, because of non-availability of vacancy, they are still in the same designation (that means in the non-gazetted post only) by getting only minimum increase in the grade pay and retire without getting promotion to the next higher position in the gazetted post even though they are eligible for promotion to the gazetted level post. In a same group of employees, some will get regular promotion very early when vacancy arises and the remaining will be in non-gazetted post only for so many years for getting the promotion and they have to assist to their fellow friends of the same group and some will retire from the same post cursing their fate and the government.

Hence, it is required that those who are at service and have completed minimum residency period in the present post, or ATLEAST THOSE WHO HAVE COMPLETED 20 YEARS OF REGULAR SERVICE FROM THE DATE OF PRESENT POST (I.E., FROM THE DATE OF BECOMING ASSISTANT/SR.STENOGRAPER IN GROUP-B NON-GAZETTED POST) they should be given promotion under MACP from Group-B Non-Gazetted Level to Group-B Gazetted Level.

It is once again requested that those who have completed residency period in group-B (Non-Gazetted) should be moved to Group-B(Gazetted).
