Atal Pension Yojana : Still Scope for increasing pension coverage

Over 69 lacs subscribers join Atal Pension Yojana with contribution of Rs. 2690 crores

Secretary DFS: Still Scope for increasing pension coverage

Atal Pension Yojana currently has over 69 lacs subscribers with contribution of Rs. 2690.00 crores. Chairman, PFRDA Shri Hemant G Contractor however emphasised the need of increasing the pension coverage in India at a recently concluded conference on Atal Pension Yojana. The conference organised by Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) in the national capital saw participation from all major banks, representatives from NPCI, SCHIL, SIDBI, Access Assist and some major MFIs.

A large section of the society still does not have access to pensions and this is a cause of concern for PFRDA and Government, Shri Contactor said. Congratulating the winners of the contest organised by PFRDA the Chairman said that APY has made progress in covering the intended subscribers but much remains to be done. He mentioned that on an average, a little less than 2% of the eligible population is covered under APY and hence a lot has to be done to provide people a regular access to old age income. He also touched upon the issues of persistence in the APY accounts and asserted that the objective of the scheme is to provide pension and this will only happen if the contribution in the account has been regularly paid. He urged the APY Service Providers to educate the subscribers on the importance of the same. He also urged upon the APY Service Providers i.e Banks and Post Offices under Department of Post to achieve the targets allocated by government by putting in their best efforts.

A video message of Shri Rajiv Kumar, Secretary DFS was played during the occasion. Shri Rajiv Kumar mentioned that Atal Pension Yojana is flagship program of the Government of India under financial inclusion and financial security. The pension coverage in this country is at around 12% and banks and other stakeholder need to work towards greater coverage under the scheme. He also said that DFS is monitoring the progress under the scheme and targets allocated under the scheme to banks should be accomplished. He touched upon the subject of providing a digital platform for APY by PFRDA i.e e-APY. Secretary Shri Rajiv Kumar congratulated the banks on their performance under the campaigns and urged them to continue the work.

While the government has a pension scheme for the BPL persons but the amount is meagre and is not sufficient for old age needs. 9% of the population of India, i.e 110 million people are over 60 years and by 2030 this figure is expected to cross 180 million. The 60 plus age groups is the fastest growing demographic in the country. With increase in longevity of the people, disintegration of the joint family system in India and inflation, there is greater need for old age than ever before. Currently pension benefits are available India basically to the organised sector. Atal Pension Yojana introduced in 2015 by Government of India provides a self- contributory savings pension scheme with guaranteed pension of Rs. 1,000/- to Rs. 5,000/- with a very low contribution by the subscriber. All banks and Department of Post have pushed the product to the interiors of the country. APY has option for increasing the pension amount from Rs. 1000/- to any other amount up to Rs. 5000/- as per the savings capacity of the subscriber, and further allows the spouse to continue the account in the event of the death of the subscriber before the age of sixty years. PFRDA has also been engaging with various State Governments for providing co-contribution under the scheme. With the introduction of e-APY through Aadhaar, the banks will be able to effectively utilise the digital platform for greater coverage.

Rural people to get affordable life insurance services - Manoj Sinha

Press Information Bureau
Government of India
Ministry of Communications
 
13-October-2017 13:18 IST

The Minister for Communications Shri Manoj Sinha today launched the Sampoorna Bima Gram (SBG) Yojana and an initiative for expansion of clientele base of Postal Life Insurance.  Talking to media after launching the schemes here, the Minister said that the vision of the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi to provide banking services through the postal network needs to be taken forward to provide affordable life insurance services to people living in rural areas of the country. He said that all villages under the Saansad Adarsh Gram Yojana will be brought under its ambit.

The Minister said, under Sampoorna Bima Gram (SBG) Yojana, at least one village (having a minimum of 100 households) will be identified in each of the revenue districts of the country, wherein endeavour will be made to cover all households of that identified village with a minimum of one RPLI (Rural Postal Life Insurance) policy each.  Coverage of all households in the identified Sampoorna Bima Gram village is the primary objective of this scheme.

Shri Sinha said, under the scheme expansion of clientele base of PLI, it has now been decided that benefits of PLI will no more be confined to Government and semi-Government employees, but will also be available to professionals such as Doctors, Engineers, Management Consultants, Charted Accountants, Architects, Lawyers, Bankers etc. and to employees of listed companies of NSE (National Stock Exchange) and BSE (Bombay Stock Exchange).  The decision has been taken to enlarge the cover of social security and bring maximum number of people under the protection of Postal Life Insurance (PLI). He said that the postal policies have low premium and high bonus, unlike the Private ones.

The Minister added that the Government is committed to the cause of complete wellbeing of citizens of this country.  Expansion of clientele base of Postal Life Insurance (PLI) and ensuring coverage of Rural Postal Life Insurance (RPLI) to all households of Sampoorna Bima Gram villages in each district of the country is a step in that direction. These two major initiatives being undertaken by Department of Posts will serve as an instrument of securing lives of people as well as enhancing financial inclusion.

Postal Life Insurance (PLI), introduced in 1884, is one of the oldest life insurance schemes for benefit of Government and semi-Government employees.  Rural Postal Life Insurance (RPLI), introduced on March 24, 1995 on recommendations of Malhotra Committee, provides insurance cover to people residing in rural areas, especially weaker sections and women living in rural areas. Low Premium and High Bonus is the unique feature of PLI and RPLI schemes.  As on March 31, 2017, there were 46.8 lakh PLI and 146.8 lakh RPLI policies across the country.  

The insurance industry in India has undergone transformational changes after liberalisation of the insurance sector in the year 2000, subsequent to setting up of the insurance regulator Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI).  In such a competitive scenario, it is felt that there is an urgent need for Postal Life Insurance (PLI) / Rural Postal Life Insurance (RPLI) to redefine itself.

World Post Day...


October -9 is World Post Day. Yogesh Pawar pays tribute to the foot soldier of this timeless institution — the postman, whose underpaid and overworked life is rarely acknowledged

     "The proper definition of a man is an animal that writes letters."
—Lewis Carroll

Little might mathematician, logician, Anglican deacon, photographer and one of the finest nonsense litterateurs of the world who has given us the all-time classic Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass, have known how despite her digital strides India still lives a lot by what he said in the late 1800s. Although volumes of regular mail in the form of inland letters and postcards has reduced by 50 per cent in India, it is still among the highest and most widely distributed postal systems in the world. The Indian Posts and Telegraph Department (IPTD) continues to have a network of 1,55,021 post offices across the country. As many as 92.16 per cent of these (1,42,785) are located in rural areas while 7.84 per cent (12,236) in urban ones, according to the IPTD.

Keeping India connected

Abha Singh, former Postal Services director for Maharashtra & Goa circle says the Department has been India's backbone for years. "The IPTD has played a crucial role in the country's socio-economic development for 160 years. While the good, old telegram has been consigned to history, the post office not only delivers mail, passports and Aadhar cards but also touches lives by providing life insurance cover under Postal Life Insurance (PLI) and Rural Postal Life Insurance (RPLI) and accepts deposits under Small Savings Scheme. It also provides retail services such as bill collection, sale of postal stationery, stamps, forms, etc. The Department of Post (DoP) also serves as intermediaries for benefit schemes such as Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS), wage disbursement and old age pension payments," says Singh, underlining how no such service across the world, except in parts of China, compares with India's postal service.

Meet the foot soldiers

Given the scope, magnitude and gamut of services of the postal network, even those among  the 1.34 billion Indians living over its 3.287 million sqkm land mass divided into 22 postal circles, who have never visited a post office, surely have interacted with the IPTD's foot soldiers, its postmen.

Navrang Singh Meena should know. A door-to-door postman since 1989, every visit of his is eagerly looked forward to by the residents of 129 homes in Rajasthan's Pali village. Most men in this village of 643 people are away in Jaipur, Ahmedabad or Mumbai working as masons and carpenters. "While they get their money sent home through informal networks since the postal money order proves expensive, they still like to send and receive letters as the cellphone network in the village is poor," says 44-year-old Meena. "Most locals can't read or write. I not only read out letters, to them but also write them for the elderly and the women. It is a good thing some school-going children are taking up this responsibility, as I end up spending too much time in each village."

Meena laughingly recounts how this occasionally puts him in a spot. "A newly married young woman in the village would draw the ghunghat (veil) over her face while I wrote to her husband in Ahmedabad. While wary of her in-laws who would rebuke her if she was caught corresponding directly with her husband, what was amusing was that even when I met her at a sympathetic neighbour's, she would be coy about saying what she wanted to convey to her husband and refused to utter his name," says this father of two. The college drop-out admits he finds the bicycle commute tedious, but likes the respect and love he receives from the villagers.

Over 900km away, in Mumbai's Goregaon suburb, postman Bal Gangadhar Gawde always carries a photograph of his family deity with him to ward off danger. After all, his work takes him through the thick forests of what is leopard country. Less than a month after the forest department trapped a leopard suspected of having attacked four children, killing one, in Aarey Milk Colony, two women were attacked by two leopards at the Chafyachapada tribal hamlet in the early hours of October 1st. "Last year, I was walking to the same village when I saw a leopard atop a tree branch barely 100metres away. Luckily for me, he snarled lazily and made no attempt to jump down. I ran in the other direction, clutching my bag of mail and took a circuitous route through the forest to deliver letters in Chafyachapada," recounts Gawde of the area he operates in delivering mail.

Given the terrain, there are lots of snakes and scorpions who take refuge inside post boxes. The one outside the remote New Zealand hostel is particularly notorious and Gawde never opens it without tapping it furiously. Despite hardships, this second generation postman has no regrets. "I'm glad I gave in to my late father's goading and became a postman like him. I love the rapport and trust I enjoy with the communities who've treated me like family for 37 years."

Abha Singh says stories like Meena's and Gawde's are the norm and not the exception. "There are complaints of delays and inefficiency, but given the challenges like inundated post offices, marooned and cut-off villages, difficult and hostile terrain, most agree postmen do a good job given their work circumstances," she says with pride and adds: "You'll notice that whether it is the heart of Naxal country in Gadchiroli or in the dacoit-infested ravines of Chambal, postmen have seldom been attacked or stopped from carrying out their duty."

All is not well

The National Federation of Postal Employees' (NFPE) union office bearers admit all is not well with the system given how understaffed and overworked it is. Delhi-based Secretary General RN Parashar took a swipe at the media.

"If a postman is caught for failing to deliver mails in Mumbai, like the errant Kurla postman who was dumping post in a watchman's cabin for more than four months, there is outrage and the media does well to articulate it. But the same media fails to highlight the abysmal conditions in which postal staff work, from old dilapidated structures, often without power, safe drinking water or toilet facilities," he says. "There have been no postman recruitments since 2014 after corruption charges in the recruitment process that year. Now people are retiring and we have a manpower shortage of over 40 per cent. The Department wants the remainder staff to take on extra work for which they get a measly Rs94 per day. Instead of moving older postmen into mail-sorting jobs at the desk as used to be the norm, some on the verge of retirement are now doing both, sorting and delivering mail. They often work 12-14 hours a day." Underlining this as the main cause of mail pendency, Parashar says many senior postmen are tired of facing the music from both bosses and the members of the public. "Fed up, they are seeking retirement in the hundreds and the government is not even paying attention to this crisis in the making." He laughs at the government's the idea of a solution to understaffing. He calls the outsourcing the work to temporary employees hired for as little as Rs 250 a day a bigger problem than solution. "Many of these temporary employees take this up with their college education and drop out the moment they find something less laborious and better paying. Nobody is grudging them that but getting to know the beat, area and people often takes a year or two. And it is such familiarity that can make or break the quality of postal services to an area. How can a collegian who comes to an area for a month or two do that?"

Postmen in culture

Given their inextricable link with communities, it is not surprising that postmen have been part of literature, poetry, art, television and cinema. Whether it is The Postmaster, by Rabindranath Tagore or the popular Hindi nursery rhyme, 'Dakiya aaya', the postman has been evoked in many works. However nowhere does this come across as strongly as in cinema. Film historian and researcher Nanda Vaishampayan reminisces how thespian Dilip Kumar played a postman with twin love interests, Nargis and Munnawar Sultana, in Babul (1950). Lavish in her praise for Palkon Ki Chhaon Mein (1977), Vaishampayan says there is a reason for its cult following. "Written by Gulzar,

Rajesh Khanna plays the protagonist postman in this film with songs composed by Lakshmikant Pyarelal," she points out. "The 'Daakiya daak laya' number (https://youtu.be/u3rOmrDdPz0) is still hugely popular."

Pyarelal of the composer duo remembers how they had found the lyrics challenging. "Gulzar wrote the lyrics based on the postman's interactions. It had upbeat moments, longing and yearning for the beloved and also tidings of deaths. There is a moment where the song goes from talking about marriages and celebrations to news of death. You should see how Kishore Kumar shifts gears in an instant to go from upbeat to sorrowful."

In fact, the conversation between the shy bride (Aruna Irani) burning in passion for her husband who is away and the postman in the next verse really captured the essence of how the postman picks up the non-verbal nuances to convey the exact message in the letter.

But Pyarelal had some experience with that with Khat Likh De Sawariya Ke Naam Babu (https://youtu.be/P0aoxZUN5gk) for Aaye Din Bahar Ke, 11 years before. "The essence of the rural woman and postman's interaction was really captured well by Anand Bakshi's words, the way Asha Bhosale has sung it and the way Asha Parekh has expressively rendered it on screen really makes this song stand out," says the septuagenarian Pyarelal.

Twenty one years later Bollywood would get its first negative postman in Ashutosh Rana's psychopath sexual predator Gokul Pandit in Dushman (1998). Vaishampayan says thoughts of Gokul Pandit delivering mail, while hungrily looking for his next target, give her the creeps  even now. The song 'Laaya Daak Babu Laya Re Sandeswa' (https://youtu.be/fCDOq3gv7Nw) by Shubha Mudgal for her album 'Pyaar Ke Geet' in 1999 had also topped the charts for long. Mudgal says her Allahabad upbringing made her comfortable with the language and context of this song. "The anticipation of the letter from the beloved, its arrival or not have been abiding themes in both semi-classical and folk genres. This song is an example of that," she says. It wasn't till 2014 that another postman came to the silver screen when Naseerudin Shah reprised an out-of-work postman in Finding Fanny where a letter he's written to his beloved remains undelivered for 46 years.

Vaishampayan underlines how postman portrayals in the West have witnessed all kinds of hues. "Agent K played by Tommy Lee Jones in Men in Black II (in the MiB universe, most postal workers are aliens), Masood Ahmed (EastEnders), Henry Chinaski (Charles Bukowski's alter ego in the book Post Office), Gordon Krantz (The Postman), Willie Lumpkin  (mailman of the Fantastic Four in Marvel Comics) come to mind." Wonder if Meena or Gawde have watched any of these?

CHQ News: Request letter to Secretary (Posts) to hold DPC for PS Gr. B for the year 2017-18 and issue repatriation order in PS Gr.B and JTS Gr.A cadre

To,

The Secretary (Posts),
Department of Posts,
Dak Bhawan, Sansad Marg,
New Delhi-110 001.

Subject :    Holding of DPC for promotion to the cadre of PS Gr. B for the year 2017-18. 

Respected Sir,

          IP/ASP Association intended to bring to your kind notice that Directorate vide memo No. 9-14/2016-SPG dated 09-12-2016 has appointed 105 Inspector Line Officers on regular basis in PS Gr. B cadre in the vacancies of 2016-17 and vide memo No. 9-14/2016-SPG dated 07-09-2017 result of extended panel was declared and 17 Inspector Line Officers regularly appointed to PS Gr. B cadre against the unfilled vacancies of 2016-17 caused due to declination etc.   

          Furthermore, it is bring to your kind notice that DPC proceedings for the year 2015-16 was commenced vide memo No. 9-02/2015-SPG dated 26/03/2015 and for the year 2016-17, it was delayed by four months and after series of communications from this Association finally commenced vide memo No. 9-14/2016-SPG dated 5/7/2016. The proceeding for the current year i.e. 2017-18 is yet not started by the Directorate, and therefore definitely there will be adversely effect on the promotion of the officers. We are sorry to point out that every year there is delay in processing and holding of DPC for the promotion to the cadre of PS Gr. B for one or other reason.

          In this regard, a kind reference is invited to para-3 of the Department of Posts (Personnel Division) letter No.25-10/2014-SPG dated 09/07/2014 coupled with para-7 of DOP & T OM No.22011/9/98-Estt (D) dated 08-09-1998 wherein it is provided that a DPC may take into account all clear expected vacancies by retirement in the concerned grade as well as chain vacancies on account of retirement etc. in the higher grades which can be clearly anticipated in the same vacancy year.

          Department of Posts vide Personnel Division letter dated 09/07/2014 has also issued instructions to percolate the seniority quota vacancies arising in higher grades in a vacancy year down to lower cadres/grades and to take into account along with the clear vacancies arising in a particular grade. Further, as clarified vide Para.4.(II) of the said letter a Circle will take into account the vacancies arising from HAG to PS Group-B Cadre in that Circle in a vacancy year as chain vacancies for lower cadres in addition to existing and anticipated vacancies in the said lower cadre arising in that vacancy year.

          As per the DOP & T guidelines issued from time-to-time, the selected panel is to be kept ready and to be utilized as and when the vacancies arise during the course of the vacancy year to ensure timely promotion of the employees.

          Sir, you will agree that a large number of JTS vacancies are lying vacant in Circles since long and PS Group “B” officers are officiating against these posts creating resultant vacancies in Group “B” in circles and imbalance thereof up to IP/ASP level affecting timely promotion in each cadre and repatriation of deserving officers to their parent circles. Many a times, odd position occurs where the approved persons of a particular circle are made to work outside their parent circle, despite having good number of vacancies in their parent circles. As on date, there are clear vacancies in each circle and against which junior officers are officiating for months/years together. On the contrary, regular senior officers are presently working outside the home circle. The request applications of these officers for repatriation to their parent circle are already been registered at SPG Division at Directorate.

          In view of above, it is earnestly requested your honour to kindly pass orders to (a) convene pending JTS Gr. A DPC for the year 2016-17, (b) issue immediate repatriation orders of PS Gr. B / JTS officers to their home circle / choice station against vacancies up to September 2017, (c) call for records for convening regular DPC for promotion to PS Gr. B cadre for the year 2017-18. Circle wise time slot for submission of APARs and other documents may be given for one week only, so work can be speedup and delay in holding of DPC also be avoided and (d) Circles may also be directed to fill all post of ASPs by convening immediate DPCs so that all get their due share and jobs are created for youth of the country. 

With profound regards,
 Yours sincerely,

Respected Sir,

The Central Working Committee meeting of All India Association of Inspectors and Assistant Superintendents, Posts was held at Shimla on 7th and 8th September 2017 and above subject was discussed in detail. After discussion, following resolution was passed unanimously by CWC.

 “Central Working Committee resolve to urge the Department to conduct DPC for promotion into PS Gr. B cadre before 30/11/2017 and release the memo of promotion of JTS Gr. A immediately so as to ensure promotion of Inspector Posts to PS Gr. B and PS Gr. B to JTS Gr. A cadre timely. The instructions issued by DoPT to prepare an extended panel may also be adhered to which will take care of vacancies arised by unforeseen circumstances including cases of non-willingness etc. This will reduce the increasing number of adhoc promotions ordered by Circes in PS Gr. B and JTS Gr. A cadre”.

It is therefore requested to kindly take appropriate action in respect of above resolution at the earliest, as every year DPCs are delayed for one or other reasons.

We hope that above resolution will be implemented in the interest of service.

Yours sincerely,
