NFPE/ORG/P  3 DLG   dated   the        09-01-2017

Sub :   Outsourcing in the Department of Posts -reg

                Your  attention is invited to the orders communicated to all offices vide B1/Misc dated 6.1.2017 on the subject.

            In the first instance, the contents of the instructions contained in the letter of CPMG referred in the letter ibid seems to have been misconstrued.  The CPMG's letter mention about the outsourcing restrictions and guidelines to be followed in the case of housekeeping and data entry works.  The back office work being arranged to the operational post offices are entirely different in nature.  Hence, curtailing the outsider engagement expenditure incurred towards such work in the Division is not at all justified.

            The requirement of supporting/executing back office work in the multi staffed offices arise when the limited staff is deputed to other offices, especially to C class offices. Also such requirement arise, when there is prolonged absence of staff in an office due to eligible leave, service courses etc.

            You will agree that in the above circumstances, adequate staffing of the offices is the prime responsibility of Divisional Administration.  Implementing restrictions on the above human resources deployment/utilization will only add pressure to the offices and staff in delivering their normal duties and in no way help in satisfactory function of the offices, retain and sustain the post office business.  The net result of implementation of the orders will be unsatisfactory performance of the Division.  We earnestly hope that the Divisional Administration will not leap towards such miserable action.

            If the restriction is considered necessary in terms of curbing expenditure, perhaps it may please be noted that no additional expenditure is incurred towards outsider engagements when the following realties are taken in to consideration.
            Vacancy  of Postal Assistants in the division                : 26+10=36
            (Including Untrained Pas)           
            No of Postal Assistants utilised as System Admin        :           6
            No of Postal Assistants utilised as ME / PRIP               :           2
            No of Postal Assistants utilised as IPs                             :           2
            No of Postal Assistants utilised in RMS                          :           1
            No of Postal Assistants filling up higher posts
            (PM Gr 1, PM Grd 2, LSG/HSG Parcel Hub etc)              :           8

            The above diversion of manpower of PA staff has a major contribution towards shortage of PAs faced by offices, as such the Cost factor of the above diversion/underutilization will be very much higher when compared to the expenditure incurred in terms of outsider engagement.  Therefore, the expenditure can be well justified.

            Hope you will give due consideration to the above conditions, facts and figures in the light of day by day implemented diversified projects in the department and take appropriate measures to maintain adequate staffing pattern of the offices in the Division.   Else, we caution with concern that the workforce in the division may be affected badly, prove detrimental to the overall performance of the Division.

            Yours sincerely,
                                                                                                                                                C Krishnadas

Immediate renewal of Building agreement - Palakkad Fort SO

NFPE/ORG/PGF/DLG   dated   the        09-01-2017

Sub :   Immediate renewal of Building agreement -  Palakkad Fort SO

            The office rent for Palakkad Fort SO was under arbitration and the Court judgment was delivered for allowing an amount of Rs. 10200/- (Ten thousand Two hundreds only).  Housing the Office in the same building was essential and justified in the interest of both DOP and the Public, as the office is in a prime location and the Office name has historical importance.  Hence it is clear that the Departmental motive then was to continue the office in the same location even if it warrants legal battle in terms of rental amount.

            Now, when the court verdict stands in favour of the Department and in normal course, the office rent agreement need to be executed with newly agreed rent, it is learnt that some officers are raising objections and trying to de-rail the smooth execution of the orders of court in the pretext of exploring possibilities to relocate the office and business audit etc.  This administrative imbroglio is delaying the process.   Continuing with such detrimental actions by the administration may result in losing the office space from the present location as happened to Kunnathurmedu SO and some other offices in the Division.

            NFPE cannot justify, tolerate such warped attitude being shown towards office building cases by the administration in general and that in the case of Palakkad Fort SO.  It is hereby cautioned that the onus of endurance of the office must be ensured at the earliest in top priority basis, dropping all unconstructive   proposals knit in the milieu.
           
            Yours faithfully
C Krishnadas
