Subject: Posting of women employees – Reg.


I am directed to say that during the meeting of the Departmental Council (JCM) held on 27.08.2010 under the Chairpersonship of Secretary (Posts), an item regarding non-posting of women employees where basic amenities are not available was raised by the Staff side. The Staff side has stated that a number of Post Offices/RMS Offices are not having all the basic amenities and women employees are finding it difficult to work in such places. The staff side has, therefore, demanded that women employees should not be posted to such offices before ensuring basic amenities in such places.

2. It was informed to the staff side that Dte has issued instructions vide letter No. 137-12/98-SPB.II, dated 29.04.1998 to all Postal Circles advising them to avoid posting of ladies staff where basic amenities are not available in the office. It was decided in the meeting by the Chairperson that instructions on the subject be reiterated to all Heads of circles for strictly compliance.

3. In the Directorate’s letter No. 137-12/98-SPB.II, dated 29.04.1998, it was inter-alia advised to avoid posting women employees where there are no basic and essential amenities for women, Circles are, therefore, requested to scrupulously follow these instructions before women employees are posted/transferred from one work place to other. It may be ensure that women employee is transferred to an office only after ensuring that basic and essential amenities for women are available there. The Circles are also requested to identify these offices which are lacking basic amenities and take action for providing them immediately.

Yours faithfully,

The central Government employees are expecting a Good Dearness Allowance rise from 1st January 2011.  It is expected that atleast 6% increase in DA will be there from Jan 2011.

Present DA Rate  45%.
Expected increase:  6%.
DA rate from Jan 2011:  51%.

The calculation is based on the AICPIN published by labour Bureau,  Government of India.  For the month November 2010 the AICPIN stands at 182. For December, the results will come only at the end of month of January 2011. If AICPIN reaches at 185 in December Government employees would likely to get 6% DA.

Once the DA rate touches 50%, the allowances like conveyance allowance, children education allowance etc will be increased 25% more.  The final picture will come in the end of January 2011 only.
