Sub- Hardship faced by staff while accepting WOS Banknotes through PO S.B Accounts & also due to non-supply of Fake note detector machines & cash counting machines-request for remedial action.

Respected Sir,   
         In continuation to this Circle Union’s letter of even number dated 11-11-2016, no action has been noticed to remove the plights faced by employees, working at post offices in accepting WOS Notes and exchanging with new ones. They have been forced to work on Sunday (13-11-16) & on 14-11-2016 (Holiday) without declaring the provision of remuneration for working on Sunday & holiday from our authorities. There is no provision of security while making huge transactions in the counters and also for clearing of huge accumulated cash from the offices. It has been noticed about accumulation of Crores of cash at HOs & SOs without proper security due to lack of follow of action for clearance and non-acceptance of the same in the linked banks. There is non-availability of fake note detector machines & cash counting machines in most of the post offices as a result of which the information of collection of fake notes are also coming from our post offices which may lead to staff victimization. It is has been reported also about non-supply of below Rs. 100/- notes to post offices, creating embracing condition to staff while dealing with public for other transactions.

      Our employees are ready to face all the challenges, including the present order of the Government by ceasing Rs. 500/- & Rs. 1000/- notes from the Midnight of 8thNovember 2016. At the same time also the administration should come up with actions to resolve the problems of its employees while implementing the order of the Government.

      On the circumstances, it is urged for settlement of all the above problems faced by staff as war-foot basis for smooth implementation of Government orders.



  Yours faithfully,

Circle Secretary

          Special Allowance to PO & RMS Accountants:
            Proposal: The allowance is required to be continued as this special allowance has been sanctioned in lieu of higher pay scale.
