To
Sri Narendra Modi
Hon’ble Prime Minister
Government of India
New Delhi – 110001

Respected Sir,
Subject : Implementation of Kamalesh Chandra Report on Gramin Dak Sevaks of the Department of Posts.

We, on behalf of 2.60 lakh Gramin Dak Sevaks of India venture to approach your benign self with high hopes of causing activisation of the process. We are obliged to the union cabinet for approving the implementation of report. But we are sorry to submit that there is avoidable delay on the Part of the officials at Postal Directorate level In issuing orders. Even after two weeks of the cabinet decision not a single order has been processed and even the movement of the file illudes us. Probably, this is aimed at creating trust deficit.

We approach your high self, with all our respect, to cause the process of issuing orders to move a bit faster.

With profound regards,

Yours faithfully,

2. Further it has been clarified by the Dept. of Expenditure that the Government has decided that given the rise in the pay over the years, the recommendations of the 7th CPC to discontinue OTA for categories other than Operational Staff and industrial employees who are governed by statutory provisions may be accepted.

3. Accordingly, it has been decided to implement the aforesaid decision of the Government on Overtime Allowance across all the Ministries / Departments and attached and subordinate office of the Government of India. The following definition shall be used to define Operational Staff.

“All non-ministerial non-gazetted Central Government servants directly involved in smooth operation of the office including those tasked with operation of some electrical or mechanical equipment.”

4. The concerned Administration Wing of the Ministries / Departments will prepare a list of operational Staff with full justification based on the above parameters for inclusion of a particular category of staff in the list of operational staff with the approval of IS (Admn.) and Financial Adviser of the concerned Ministry / Department.

5. The grant of OTA may be linked to biometric attendance subject to the conditions mentioned below.

a) OTA should be paid only when his/ her senior officer directs the concerned employee(s) in writing for staying back in office to attend urgent nature of work.

b) The OTA will be calculated on the basis of biometric attendance.

c) The OTA for Staff Car Drivers should be linked with biometric system as normally, the designated parking is allotted in the office building. However, in cases where the parking lot is provided far from office, the Staff Car Driver would mark his/ her attendance while leaving from his office and a grace time of not exceeding 2 hours should be allowed to cover the distance travelled after leaving office, including the time to drop the officer and then reaching the parking lot.

These disabled soldiers have inspiring deeds behind them, hence, it is planned to felicitate them along with selected organizations which dedicate in their rehabilitation.

Management of disabled soldiers is an onerous responsibility. Indian Army plans to galvanise due support for the unemployable disabled soldier, his wife and his family with initial financial support to ensure a life of dignity through partially-funded entrepreneurship venture.

Department of Expenditure E.II(B) Section

Reference PUC I to III, (p.1/NLF of DOT, p2.3/cor.,p.u.6/cor.)

2. As per recommendations of 7th CPC, rates of Transport Allowance had been revised w.e.f. 01.07.2017. Details of rates during 6th CPC and as prescribed by 7th CPC are given below:

Employees drawing pay in Pay Level
Rates of Transport Allowance per month as per the recommendation of 7th CPC
Rates of Transport Allowance per month as per the recommendation of 6th CPC
Employees posted in the Cities as per Annexure-I
Employees posted at other Places
Employees posted in the Cities as per Annexure-I
Employees posted at Other Places
9 and above
Rs.7200 + DA thereon
Rs.3600 + DA thereon
Rs. 3200/- + DA thereon
Rs. 1600/- + DA thereon
3 to 8 and those drawing Pay of Rs.24200/- and above in Level 1 & 2 of the Pay Matrix

4. It is clearly mentioned in the Resolution dated 25.07.2016 that 'till a final decision on Allowances is taken based on the recommendations of this Committee, all Allowances will continue to be paid at existing rates in existing pay strucutre, as if the pay had not been revised with effect from 1st day of January, 2016." Therefore, between 01.01.2016 and 30.06.2017, no DA had been allowed on any Allowance.

5. In case, if the enhanced rate of DA i.e. 132% w.e.f. 0.07.2016 & 136% w.e.f. 01.01.2017 given for pre-revised pay scale of 6th CPC, is allowed on Transport Allowance rates as per 6th CPC, it would exceed the rates of Transport Allowance as recommended by the 7th Central Pay Commission which is not permissible. Therefore, we may clarify to D/o Telecommunication, D/o Revenue and Central Secretariat Association (Promottee Assistants) that enhanced rate of DA on 6th CPC rates of Transport Allowance from 01.07.2016 to 30.06.2017, is not admissible.
