"Trade union is not a dinner party or writing an essay, or painting a picture, or doing embroidery. It cannot be so refined, so leisurely and gentle, so temperate, kind, courteous, restrained and magnanimous. Trade union activity is a constant struggle of have not against haves"---------com K.G.Bose

Nod for Development Board for Hyderabad-Karnataka region

President Pranab Mukherjee, late on Wednesday evening, issued an order allowing Karnataka Governor to set up a separate Development Board for Hyderabad-Karnataka region, consisting of six districts, under the recently introduced Article 371J of the Constitution.
The districts to be benefited are: Gulbarga, Bidar, Raichur, Koppal, Yadgir and Bellary.

The Board has come into force with immediate effect. It will ensure equitable allocation of funds to meet the development needs of the region from the State Budget. It will promote employment from the region by providing for local cadres in service; and provide reservation in educational and vocational training institutions to the locals.

The Presidential Order has been issued under the “State of Karnataka (Special Responsibility of Governor for Karnataka-Hyderabad Region) Order, 2013” under Article 371J of the Constitution.
Union Railway Minister and Lok Sabha member from Gulbarga Mallikarjun Kharge told The Hindu that the dream of the people in the six backward districts for the last 12 years had come true now with the establishment of the Board for their development. The districts would get special financial packages from various central ministries meant for development of backward areas and this could not be considered discriminatory.

As there was a constitutional protection – under Article 371J – the decision for providing reservation in jobs or educational institutions or other privileges could not be questioned before the court of law, Mr. Kharge said.


Informed sources said 21 out of 39 taluks in the six districts were “most backward”. The report on the human development index of regions also confirmed the same.

AIPEU GDS(NFPE) - PARLIAMENT MARCH


A book on India Postal system from 1668 to 2007 - published by National Book Trust. - a part of it has been included in the NCERT book of Class-VIII

Trailing the journey of the Indian postal system from 1668 till 2007, Arvind Kumar Singh’s book“ Bharatiya Dak: Sadiyon Ka Safarnama” has been chosen by the Department of Education, Ministry of Human Resource Development for the Shiksha Puraskar or the Education Award for the year 2009. The award was launched by the Government of India in 1992 for encouraging original writings in Hindi in the field of education.
Published by National Book Trust, the book has already been translated into three languages -- English, Hindi and Assamese -- and is going to be translated in seven to 12 more languages.
“This book has been a best-seller on the subject and that the new editions will have a new look,” said an NBT representative.
One of its chapters titled “ Chittiyon KI Anokhi Duniya – the unique world of letters” has also been included in the NCERT book of Class VIII which runs into seven pages.
Titled the “Moving encyclopaedia of Indian Post” in English, the book has 43 chapters and explains in detail the postal systems during the times of kings and nobility, modern and rural postal systems, postmen’s lives and the hardships they face, postcard, letterbox, earlier postal services through pigeons to dak-bunglows to horses and elephants and from male runners to rail, air etc.

Arvind Singh’s book has been written for the layman and is about the post Independence status of the postal services. It covers the challenges met by the carriers of postal services and its heroic survival despite the onslaught of technology via mobile, internet and private couriers.

It notes that that stalwarts in their own fields like Noble Laureate C.V. Raman, authors Munshi Prem Chand, Rajinder Singh Bedi, Nirad C. Chaudhary and Mahashewta Devi, actor Dev Anand and celebrated Dogri writers Shivnath and Krishna Bihari ‘Noor’ were once postal department employees.


Recalling a story about another person who wanted to write on the subject, the 52-year-old author, who hails from UP, said: “A postman in Allahabad wanted to write a book on the subject but due to financial constraints and ill health he died. He would get me my money order which I used to wait desperately for in my college days in Allahabad. Once when I didn’t get any money order, I went to see him. He was ill. I came to know that day that he used to give me money from his own pocket if my money order didn’t reach on time. It humbled me immensely and raised my curiosity to know more about the lives of postmen. But due to the lack of any research material, I had to run across the whole of India and meet almost every postman, virtually every post office to know the reality behind this unique service.”

HAPPY WORLD POST DAY

2013 Message from the Director General-Universal Postal Union

The Post, delivering for people and businesses daily


In every country, postal services play a vital role in the exchange of information and goods.

In 2012, Posts globally delivered 350 billion letters and more than 6 billion parcels. They also processed millions of financial transactions.

While the core letter-post service remains an important part of the business – letters still accounted, on average, for 45% of a Post's overall revenues in 2012 – the gradual decline in business mail is forcing national postal services to redefine themselves. ---source WWW.UPU.INT

Posts around the world are diversifying their products and services to better meet customers' needs for reliability, speed and security. As e-commerce grows, they are positioning themselves as the delivery service of choice for goods ordered online. There is no question that Posts remain important facilitators of national and international trade in this constantly evolving world.

Postal financial services, as well as parcels and logistics services, are also on the rise. Soon, revenues from each of these services are expected to account, on average, for more than 20% of a Post’s business. Posts that have never been involved in financial services, or that have been only minimally involved, are considering entering that market.

This is a logical step. Why? Because of the postal network's vast reach. The postal network remains the largest physical network in the world and a fundamental infrastructure that enables large segments of the economy to function.

With more than 600,000 post offices globally, postal services are inclusive and accessible; no one gets turned away. The Post is truly a public service for every citizen, irrespective of one's position in society.

This 9 October, on World Post Day, I urge governments to remember their national Post's potential for delivering essential social and economic services to their citizens and businesses. And I salute the dedication of the more than 5 million postal staff worldwide who work to connect people and businesses everywhere daily.
I wish you the very best on World Post Day 2013.

CONFEDERATION OF CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES & WORKERS
(Central Head Quarters)
1st Floor, North Avenue Post Office Building, New Delhi - 110001


Ref: Confd./GENL/2013-14                                               Dated – 26.09.2013

To

Sri. V. Narayanasamy
Hon’ble Minister of State

New Delhi - 110001

Sir,

Sub: -  Request declaration of Holiday on 14.10.2013 in lieu of 13.10.2013 – case of Karnataka State.

The main festival of Dussehra (Vijaya Dashami) is being celebrated on 14.10.2013 in entire Karnataka State and the world famous Jambu Savari procession takes place on 14.10.2013 at Mysore. As the standard holidays for Vijaya Dashami has been declared on 13.10.2013 vide your office letter dated 05.06.2012, the C. G. Employees could not avail holiday on 14.10.2013, the real date of its celebration.

The optional holidays could not be exercised in the state on 14.10.2013, as they have already been exercised for Sankranthi, Ugadi & Ganesh Chatturthi as holidays by the CGEWCE, Karnataka. As such the only option available is to modify the holiday on 13.10.2013 as 14.10.2013 only in respect of Karnataka Circle.

As this is a main festival in respect of Karnataka Circle, it is requested to consider the option at the earliest.

A line in reply about the action taken is highly solicited.

With kind regards,

Yours sincerely,


(M. Krishnan)
