            The Secretary,
            Department of Posts’
            Dak Bhawan, New Delhi-110 001

 Sub:  Settlement of Pay Commissions related issues: regarding


1.         The Finance ministry has constituted an implementation cell which will function as the Sectt. of the empowered Committee headed by  Cabinet Secretary in which  Secretary , Department of Post is also a member.

2.         As per the minutes of implementation cell held on 2nd February, Nodal Officers from our Department has not attended, it is reliably learnt.

3.         The implementation cell has fixed two weeks time for submission of any Departmental specific  Modification on 7th CPC recommendations but it is  learnt  that Nodal Officer appointed  by the  Department is out of Delhi and will be returning after 12th February , by that time, there will be  4 days time left  for cutoff date fixed by implementation cell..

4.         Further minutes says that any modification recommended by the Secretary Posts should be approved by the Minister (C) also before submission to implementation cell. We feel that if action is not taken on war footing it will be impossible for the Postal Department to submit modification proposal to the implementation cell after completing all the above formalities before the cutoff date

5.         Regarding  Cadre Restructuring  also if orders  are not issued before implementation of Pay Commissions report, there is every chance of returning the proposal by DOP&T  for  resubmission after signing fresh  agreement  taking in to consideration the 7th CPC  orders issued  by the Government.

            In view of the above we request you to kindly act immediately to safe guard the interests of Postal Employees without giving room for any delay or omission or commission on the part of Postal Department.

            We have decided certain agitational programmes on which we will be giving a separate memorandum on 11th March 2016.
Yours faithfully

Why government must hire more?

 In any country, the economy and society are usually ahead of the government, which causes a governance gap to emerge. In India, this gap is wide and growing. The only way to narrow it is by increasing the quality and, yes,the quantity of public officials. We do need to minimise government to maximise governance, but that refers to the scope of what the government does; not how many people the government employs.
    Despite the perception that our government is overstaffed, the reality is that India has very low numbers of civil servants who are necessary to carry out the basic functions of government. The Seventh Pay Commission refers to this in its report, noting that in the United States, the federal government has 668 employees per 1,00,000 population. In comparison, the Union government employs 139.This is not even considering the fact that under India’s constitutional structure, the Union government has a bigger charter than its American counterpart.
     India has one of the lowest ratios of government employees to population in the world. In a World Bank study in the late 1990s, Salvatore Schiavo-Campo, Giulio de Tommaso and Amitabha Mukherjee found that less than 1.5 per cent of India’s population was employed in government, which was behind countries such as Malaysia and Sri Lanka (4.5 per cent) and China (around 3 per cent). In fact, government employment ratios in the rich and better governed West are much higher: around 15 per cent in Scandinavian countries and 6-8 per cent in the U.S. and western Europe.
    Anyone who finds too much traffic and too few traffic policemen; too many foreign policy issues and too few diplomats; too much garbage and too few city officials; too many stray pigs and too few pig catchers (there is only one in entire Bengaluru) will attest to the fact that we actually do need more public officials. The shortage of officials is something that runs through the Union, State and local governments. In the Union government alone, the Seventh Pay Commission reports, there is an overall vacancy of around 18 per cent. It is unable to fill even the sanctioned strength, leave alone raising the numbers to levels adequate to deliver adequate baseline governance.
So, if we are concerned about improving governance, we should be really concerned about how to add strength to the machinery of the government. When you have only around 130 police personnel and 1.2 judges per 1,00,000 population, and you need at least 200 of the former and 10 of the latter, asking whether they are being overpaid misses the point.
     What the Modi government should do is announce that, is ready to pay its public officials well, increase their numbers, invest in building competency, and, in the same breath, restructure government machinery to remain current with the times. That would do wonders for minimum government, maximum governance.

GST would be a major reform in India’s taxation system since 1947?

   The Goods and Services Tax (GST) is a value added tax that will replace all indirect taxes levied on goods and services by the Government, both Central and States, once it is implemented. The GST is all set to consolidate all State economies. This will be one of the biggest taxation reforms that will take place in India once the Bill gets officially the green signal to implement. The basic idea is to create a single, cooperative and undivided Indian market to make the economy stronger and powerful. The GST will see a significant breakthrough towards an all-inclusive indirect tax reform in the country.

Bottlenecks in the implementation of GST

Though the Government wants the GST Bill to be implemented by April 2016, there are certain bottlenecks which need to be taken care of before that:
  • What preparations are needed at the level of Central and State Governments for implementing the GST?
  • Whether the Government machinery is efficient enough for such an enormous change?
  • Whether the tax-payers are ready for such a change?
  • What will be the impact on the Government’s revenue?
  • How will the manufacturers, traders and ultimate consumers be affected?
  • Will GST help the small entrepreneurs and small traders?
If everything goes well, most likely the Bill will be legislated by April 2016. According to a study by the National Council of Applied Economic Research (NCAER), full implementation of the GST could expand India’s growth of gross domestic product by 0.9-1.7 percentage points. By removing the system of multiple Central and State taxes, the GST can help in reducing taxation and filing costs and expand business profitability, thereby attracting investments and promoting GDP growth. Simplification of tax norms can help in improving tax compliance and increasing tax revenues.
