The Rising Force of Postal Banking in the Retail Banking Market

The Minister for Communications & IT and Law and Justice Shri Ravi Shankar Prasad has said that a group constituted by the Prime Minister consisting of the Secretary of the Postal department is looking into making of a financial institution for Postal savings. He was inaugurating the Postal Savings Banks Forum being organised by World Savings and Retail Banking Institute (WSBI), the National Savings Organisation of the Finance Ministry and the Department of Posts in New Delhi today. He said the present government wants to promote financial inclusion and the Jhan Dhan Yojana is a big effort in this direction. Another programme of the government of ‘Digital India’, which is steered by his ministry, also aims at digital inclusion and digital empowerment of rural poor.

Shri Prasad informed delegates from various countries that Post Office Savings Bank is one of the oldest and largest savings institution in the country and it also has the largest outreach in rural India, and more so, in backward and remote areas. The minister expressed happiness that the major asset of the postal institution, that is its connectivity on the ground is sought to be used for promoting e commerce in the country.

Secretary, Department of Posts Srimati Kavary Banerjee, in her key note address informed that the Department’s network of thousand post offices significantly out-numbers the combined number of branches of all commercial banks taken together. The post office savings schemes hold a total of 312 million accounts, which is more than the number of accounts held by any commercial bank. More importantly, the social sector disbursements done through the post offices have succeeded in bringing a total of about 80 million previously unbanked individuals into the fold of formal financial institutions in the last five years. All these have led to a change in the perception about the Post Office among the public as also within the organization. Consequently India Post is now perceived as a potential key facilitator of financial inclusion in the country, having a role in promoting the country’s socio-economic development, she added.
The theme of this year’s Postal Savings Banks Forum will be "The rising force of postal banking in the retail banking market".

            The undersigned is directed to say that Casual Laborers (Grant of Temporary Status & Regularization).

It was held in the Mohan Pal Case SLP (Civil) No. 2224/2000 that the Scheme of 1-9-93 is not an ongoing Scheme and the temporary status can be conferred on the casual labourers under that Scheme only if they were in employment on the date of the commencement of the scheme and they should have rendered continuous service of at Least one year i.e. at least 240 days in a year or 206 days (in case of officcs having 5 days a week). The Scheme inter-alia provided for regularization of CL-TS against Group ‘D’ posts.

Recruitment to erstwhile Group ‘D’ posts placed in Group ‘C’, PB-I, Grade Pay 1800/- (non-technical as MT Staff) is now made only through Staff Selection Commission and minimum educational qualification for appointment is Matriculation or ITI pass. Regularisation of CL-TS therefore cannot be done by the Ministries/ Departments on their own and requires relaxation of para-8 of the Appendix to the O,M. dated 10.09.1993.
3. This Department vide O.M No. 49011/31/2008-Esn(C) dated 17th February.2009 had requested all Ministries/ Department to provide information relating to CL-TS on their rolls.

Department of Expenditure have now advised this Department that in order to avoid piece meal examination of such proposals, a consolidated proposal for regularization of all such remaining CL-TS who were on the rolls of the Ministries/Departments on l0.09.l993 and yet could not be regularized may be forwarded to them for further consideration/examination. Therefore, all Ministries/Departments are requested to review the position at their establishments and send a consolidated proposals for regularization of services of such remaining CL-TS on their rolls (including attached/subordinate and autonomous bodies), if any, latest by 30.11 .2014 to this Department in the enclosed format.

Government to launch revamped Kisan Vikas Patra soon

The government will soon launch the revamped Kisan Vikas Patra (KVP) besides some new saving instrument programmes for the girl child as well for the physically challenged person, a senior finance ministry official said today. 

"We are going to launch the revamped Kisan Vikas Patra (KVP) soon again in the form of saving instrument," Rajat Bhargava, Joint Secretary (Budget) in the ministry finance said at an event here. 

"Similarly, the government of India is also going to launch some new saving instrument programmes for girl child as well as for the physically challenged person who has not been covered so far (under the programme)," Bhargava added. 

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, in the Budget speech, had said he will re-introduce the KVP, which was a very popular instrument among small savers. 

"I plan to reintroduce the instrument to encourage people, who may have banked and unbanked savings to invest in this instrument," Jaitley had said. 

The KVP was discontinued by the UPA government in 2011 following the Shyamala Gopinath Committee report. It had suggested that KVPs may be discontinued as they are prone to misuse. 

KVP was a popular saving scheme that doubled the money invested in eight years and seven months. The government sold these saving bonds through Post Offices in the country. 

The new government has identified financial inclusion and access to formal financial channels as a priority area and the reintroduction of KVP is seen as furthering this objective.

Government employee can't seek promotion after refusing it: Supreme Court

NEW DELHI: A government employee, whose promotion is canceled owing to his refusal to accept it, cannot ask for it at a later stage, the Supreme Court has said.

The apex court set aside the order of the Madhya Pradesh High Court which had directed the state government to restore the promotion of one of its employees whose promotion was cancelled after he turned down the offer as he did not want to get transfered to some other place.

"As we find that it is the respondent himself who is responsible for cancellation of the promotion order as he did not join the promoted post, the impugned order of the high court is clearly erroneous and against the law," a bench headed by Justice J Chelameswar said.

The court passed the order on an appeal filed by Madhya Pradesh government challenging the high court order.

The government had submitted that the high court failed to consider that Ramanand Pandey himself sent back the promotion order and continued on his post and approached the court after two years when it cancelled his promotion.

It said that at the time of promotion, Pandey was posted in Bhind district where he remained for almost 15 years and his intention was to stay at that place only.

The apex court, after hearing both sides, quashed the high court order.

"It is clear that he wanted to remain in Bhind district, where he had continued since 1990, as he was ready to go on leave instead of joining the place of transfer. Moreover, for more than two years from the date of cancellation of the order of promotion, the respondent kept totally mum and maintained stoic silence.

"There was not even a semblance of protest as to why his promotion order was cancelled or that he wanted to join the promotion post after the alleged inquiry into the so-called complaint was over. He filed the writ petition on October 24, 2008, i.e. almost two years after cancellation of his promotion order," it said.

Government to commemorate Sardar Patel’s birthday on October 31 as ‘Rashtriya Ekta Divas’.

Government of India has decided to commemorate the birth anniversary of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel on October 31, as ‘Rashtriya Ekta Divas’ or the National Integration Day. Briefing media persons, after attending an official meeting called by the Governor of Maharashtra in Mumbai today, Union Minister for Information & Broadcasting, Prakash Javadekar said, government wants to create awareness about the contribution of Sardar Patel during India’s Independence Movement and towards ensuring national integration in India. He said Sardar Patel, who is also known as the iron-man of India was instrumental in merger of princely states, to create a modern India, just after independence. “Celebrating his birth anniversary as national integration day is very appropriate” added the Minister. Union Energy Minister Piyush Goyal, who also attended today’s meeting, said that awareness about Sardar Patel’s contribution is very low, which is very unfortunate. He said, recently he came to know that in the history book of Class X, there is mention of Sardar Patel only once. 

The government has decided to make ‘Rashtriya Ekta Divas’ a popular mass movement, inviting participation from all sections of the society. The participation will be voluntary. Giving details of the action plan for the day, Mr. Javadekar said, ‘run for unity’ will be organized at various places, including towns and villages all over the country, on the morning of October 31. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will himself participate in the event and also broadcast a short radio address on the occasion. Mr. Javadekar informed that in the evening, Police and other organizations like NCC, NSS, Scouts and Guides, Home Guards etc would perform a march-past on the streets in all the district headquarters. He said, necessary instructions have been issued to concerned departments. The Minister also informed that details about how people can register for the run, will be communicated through website and advertisements in a day or two. 

Vallabhbhai Patel was born on October 31, 1875 at Karamsand in Gujarat. A barrister with a successful law practice, Vallabhbhai Patel joined the Indian National Movement under Mahatma Gandhi and grew up to become one of its tallest leaders. He played key leadership roles in organizing peasants’ movements in Kheda, Borsad and Bardoli in Gujarat and promoting the Quit India Movement against the British Raj.. The credit for the integration of over 500 independent princely states in 1947-49 by their merger from what was then a divided India to make it what it is today is due solely to Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. 


Bureaucrats asked not to act on oral orders from ministers

NEW DELHI: Ministers or their personal staff may no longer be able to get any work done by merely passing an 'oral' order as government officials have been advised not to go ahead with any decision unless written orders are issued by their immediate superiors.

The advisory, issued as part of an office memorandum at the behest of Prime Minister's Office (PMO) last week, will be applicable to staff across ministries where a junior official will carry out oral order of his/her senior only after getting written confirmation. Written confirmation of any oral order will be a must, irrespective of whether such instructions are in accordance with the rules or not.

In recent years, ministers have often been reluctant to record their observations and have instead instructed officials verbally. While some officers insist that orders be spelt out on file, in several cases, including some crucial ones, babus have gone ahead and complied with the ministers' wishes. By issue the latest missive, the PMO has also put ministers on alert. The instructions from the PMO are the latest in a series of advisories and orders on toning up the government and improving the overall decision-making process.

"If any officer receives oral instructions from the minister or from his personal staff and the orders are in accordance with the norms, rules, regulations or procedures, they should be brought to the notice of the secretary (or the head of department where the officer concerned is working in)", said the manual, referred to by the office memorandum (OM).

In case the orders are "not in accordance with the norms, rules, regulations or procedures", an official should approach the secretary "stating clearly that the oral instructions are not in accordance with the rules".

7 CP Commission’s visit to Mumbai

The commission has, in its first phase of interaction, been seeking the views of various stakeholders on its terms of reference. To this end, meetings have been held in Delhi with various organisations and heads of various agencies.

Govt. employees start work late, stay late

On most days, Central government staff work for eight hours

The occasional surprise checks by Union Ministers to see if government employees are reporting to work on time may not have brought in 100 per cent compliance, but employees aren’t as late to office as widely perceived.

The Hindu got exclusive access to one week of Central government attendance data, thanks to the first publicly available database of employees, and found that employees tend to be a bit late in getting to work, but most work a full day.

Two weeks ago, the Union overnment launched, a web portal that allows live tracking of over 50,000 Central government employees the moment he signs in and out of work.

Using a Unique Identification Number (UID)-enabled back-end, the system allows the employees’ sign-in to be authenticated and uploaded to the website in under two seconds. Personally identifiable information about individual employees is not available for public view.

Getting to work at 9 a.m. sharp is still a challenge. Just over 20 per cent of the employees swiped in by 9 on most days, but attendance picks up in the 9 a.m. to 9.30 a.m. period, when the largest number of swipe-ins takes place. The median in-time, The Hindu found, is 9.18 a.m.

Consequently, the employees leave office a little late, with 5 p.m. to 5.30 p.m. being the swipe out time among most. The median exit is 5.45 p.m.

The numbers show that on most days — except Friday, the last working day, — eight of 10 Central government employees worked for at least eight hours. This figure is only indicative as some employees appear to be making errors while swiping in or out.

Junior employees come in earlier than those higher up the bureaucracy, but this could be on account of the fact that senior bureaucrats’ days often begin with meetings in other offices and locations, an Additional Secretary whom The Hindu reached for comment said.

“We are very clear that what we are offering are the tools for measurement. Decisions on what to do with attendance data is not our job — that is for the personnel ministry,” Ram Sewak Sharma, Secretary, Department of Electronics and Information Technology, who is responsible for the project, told The Hindu.

Mr. Sharma launched Jharkhand’s version of the attendance portal during his stint there as Chief Secretary after his posting as Director-General of the Unique Identification Authority of India.

Individual employees’ data in the new Central government portal is not available for public view, but the organisation shared one week’s data — after anonymising it — with The Hindu for analysis.

PFRDA will approach FM seeking tax exemption for NPS withdrawals .

Pension regulator PFRDA will soon approach Finance Ministry seeking tax exemption for withdrawals under the National Pension System (NPS), its Chairman Hemant G Contractor has said.
This will be the first time PFRDA– after getting statutory recognition in February 2014– will seek a tax break for NPS.
The Finance Ministry will soon start the budget preparation exercise for Budget 2015-16, which will be the first comprehensive budget of the new Modi-Government.
Prior to the statutory recognition, the interim pension regulator had sought tax exemption on NPS withdrawals, but that tax break was not provided by the erstwhile UPA Government.
In his first interaction with mediapersons here on Wednesday, the new PFRDA Chairman, Contractor said there was need for some “fiscal” push from the Government to make NPS popular in the country.
A tax exemption on NPS withdrawals would address the “adequacy” aspect of retirement monies and ensure that taxes don’t eat into the retirement corpus of a subscriber.
Under the current income tax law, there is no tax incidence on contribution or accumulation phase, but tax would be levied at the withdrawal stage
A tax exemption on NPS withdrawals would level the playing field with products such as provident funds.
The direct taxes code proposed by the UPA regime had suggested that ‘Exempt-Exempt-Exempt’ regime be adopted for financial savings products like NPS.
Indications are that the new dispensation at the Centre will look to bring its own version of new income-tax law.
PFRDA Chairman Contractor said the Swavalamban scheme has been made an integral part of the Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana (PMJDY), the flagship financial programme of the Modi-led Government.
PFRDA has fixed a target of fifty five lakhs subscribers of Swavalamban under PMJDY.
This target of fifty five lakhs subscribers has been allocated to all the banks working as aggregators. Targets have also been allocated to other categories of aggregators.

SNAP DEAL to have the business deal with INDIAPOST

New Delhi: In a bid to enhance its electronic connectivity and capability across 1.5 lakh Post Offices in India, Department of Posts is in the process of inducting  new- age technology through an enterprise wide IT Project. In this series, it has also signed Business MOU with &

Mr. Vijay Ajmera, Sr. Vice President (Finance) said that they are happy to choose Department of Post as their delivering partner and this partnership will provide their e-commerce business a wider reach and network.  
In tune with the emerging e-Commerce market, parcel product has been revamped & Cash on Delivery (CoD) facility has been introduced. State-of-the-art Parcel centres are also being set up across the country. Department is also developing exclusive Parcel Network to cater the needs of e-Commerce companies.
