CHQ News: GS issue reminder to Secretary (P) to issue instructions to DA (P) to draw GP Rs. 5400/- to incumbents working on Sr.Postmaster post

No. CHQ/AIAIPASP/GP-TPA/2016                    Dated :     27/9/2016

Shri B. V. Sudhakar,
Secretary (Posts),
Department of Posts,
Dak Bhawan, Sansad Marg,
New Delhi 110001.

Sub:  Non drawal of Grade Pay of Rs.5400/- in pre-revised pay scale of Rs.9300-34800 as per the admissible pay band fixture to PS Group B officers working on the post of Sr. Postmaster.

Respected Sir,

IP/ASP Association would like to invite your kind attention to its letter of even number dated 31/8/2016 vide which it was reported that most of the Director of Accounts (Postal) in the country has not drawn GP of Rs. 5400/- to the incumbents working on Sr. Postmaster post w. e. f. 1/1/2016.

In accordance with the recommendation of 7th Pay Commission and as accepted by the Govt. of India the pre-revised of Grade Pay of PS Group ‘B’ Officers has been revised from Rs.4800/ to Rs.5400/- in the pay scale of Rs.9300--34800 in PB-2 w.e.f. 01-01-2016.

It is pertinent to mention here that none of the officers presently working as Sr Postmasters were promoted in Sr Postmaster Cadre. Rather they were promoted in PS Group B Cadre. As such all the Group B officers presently working on the post of Sr. Postmasters are entitled to Grade Pay benefit of Rs. 5400/- in pre-revised scale w.e.f. 01.01.2016 and accordingly their pay fixture would be fixed in the revised matrix. There may be interpretation in understanding the meaning of the enhancement of GP of PS Gr. B from Rs. 4800/- to 5400/-. Sr. Postmaster cadre is also a PS Gr. B cadre like ADPS working in RO/CO and Dy. Directors working under Director GPOs.

It is therefore once again requested your kind honour to direct all the DAPs/GM Finances in the Department to allow to draw GP of Rs. 5400/- to Sr. Postmasters and allowances as appropriate to the grade pay from 01-01-2016.

With regards,
                                                         Yours faithfully      

(Vilas Ingale)

World Post Day is celebrated each year on 9 October. The event was declared by the 1969 Universal Postal Congress in Tokyo as a means to mark the anniversary of the Universal Postal Union's (UPU) creation in 1874.

The purpose of World Post Day is to bring awareness to the Post's role in the everyday lives of people and businesses, as well as its contribution to global social and economic development.
As a result, the UPU's member countries are encouraged to organize their own national activities to celebrate the event, including everything from the introduction or promotion of new postal products and services, to the organization of open days at post offices, mail centres and postal museums.

For countries participating in the UPU International Letter-Writing Competition, national winners are often honoured on 9 October. The theme selected for the 2016 competition is: "Write a letter to your 45-year-old self." This topic was chosen to mark the 45th edition of the international contest. Children around the world are warmly encouraged to give flight to their imagination, while writing a letter to themselves in the future. 


INDIA POST is celebrating National Postal Week from 9th to 15th of October-2016 and week days celebrated as::
09.10.2016: World Post Day
10.10.2016: Savings Bank Day

Don't share with FB info of users who stop using WhatsApp: HC

WhatsApp, the instant messaging software, was today directed by the Delhi High Court to delete the information and data of those users who would stop using the app before September 25, when its new privacy policy comes into effect. 

A bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Sangita Dhingra Sehgal also asked WhatsApp not to share with Facebook or other group companies the information and details of users who would opt out of the app, as well as the existing users upto September 25 to protect their interest. 

As per new privacy policy of WhatsApp, user information would be shared with Facebook. 

The court issued the directions as WhatsApp, while launching its app initially, had provided complete security and protection of privacy as also because the issue relating to an individual's right of privacy is yet to be decided by the Supreme Court. 

"Having regard to the complete security and protection of privacy provided by Respondent 2 (WhatsApp) initially while launching Whatsapp and keeping in view that the issue relating to the existence of an individual's right of privacy as a distinct basis of a cause of action is yet to be decided by a larger bench of Supreme Court, we consider it appropriate to issue the following directions to protect interest of users of WhatsApp," the bench said. 

The court directed the government and Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) to "consider the issues regarding the functioning of the internet message applications like WhatsApp and take an appropriate decision at the earliest as to whether it is feasible to bring the same under the statutory regulatory framework." 

Referring to the clauses of privacy policy of WhatsApp, the court said users cannot contend that the company shall be compelled to continue the same terms of service as was there at the time of launching of the platform. Under the earlier privacy policy, there was complete protection of user privacy. 

"We are, therefore, of the view that it is always open to the existing users of WhatsApp who do not want their information to be shared with Facebook, to opt for deletion of their account," the court said. 

The directions and observations came as the court disposed of a PIL by Karmanya Singh Sareen and Shreya Sethi who had challenged its new privacy policy. 

The petitioners had alleged that the new privacy policy violated fundamental rights of users by allowing confidential information to be shared with Facebook. 

WhatsApp had earlier informed the court that when a user account was deleted, the information of that person was no longer retained on its servers.
