RTP case filed by NFPE, P3 CHQ & R3 CHQ: RTP case filed by NFPE, P3 CHQ & R3 CHQ in the Principal Bench of CAT Delhi came up for hearing on 07-01-2014. Next sitting is on 24-02-2014. Casual Labour - Huger Fast Postponed: NFPE & FNPO has already declared two days strike on 2014 February 12th & 13th and Regularization and revision of wages of casual labourer is one of the main demands of the strike. Secretary Generals of
NFPE & FNPO and all General Secretaries are out of Delhi conducting intensive campaign programmes in all Circles for making the strike total success. As such it is decided to postpone the proposed hunger fast programme on 05-02-2014 in front of Dak Bhavan, New Delhi and concentrate fully on strike campaign.
System Administrators Case: The demand for creation of a separate cadre for System Administrators has been discussed several times with the Department. Last discussion was held in the JCM, Departmental Council meeting and Cadre Restructuring Committee. Department has made it clear that existing System Administrators are not going to be benefited even if a seperate cadre is created and also pointed out certain other adverse aspects of the case. The main points of the Department are (1) In the Recruitment Rules for creating separate cadre Government (DOP & T) will fix higher technical qualifications for the post. (2) Government (DOP & T) will not agree for absorption of existing System Administrators and instead go for direct recruitment as per the Recruitment Rules. (3) Even if a cadre is created there is no much promotional scope in the same cadre as the promotional posts will be very less. Just like Postmaster Cadre they will not get general line promotion and also cannot writ IP & PSS Group B exams. In view of the above all Circle/Divisional Secretaries are requested to inform their views on the following points. (1) Whether we should still stick to our demand for separate cadre (2) Instead whether we should demand special pay or some other benefits for the existing System Administrators. The issue will be again discussed on the next meeting of the Cadre Restructuring Committee to be held on 04-02-2014. Send your views by email to before 02-02-2014. .....................
