Preference to casual labourers in the matter of engagement as Gramin Dak Sevaks - review thereof

Preference to casual labourers in the matter of engagement as Gramin Dak Sevaks - review thereof: Dept of Posts OrderNo. 17-39/4/2012-GDS

Government of India 
Ministry of Communications & IT
Department of Posts
(GDS Section)
Dak Bhawan, Sansad Marg
New Delhi- 110001
Dated: 14 Jan 2015
To
All Chief Postmasters General
Subject: Preference to casual labourers in the matter of engagement as
         Gramin Dak Sevaks - review thereof
Attention of all concerned is invited to this Directorate’s letter No. 17-141/88-EDC & Trg. dated 06th Jun 1988
 which provided for giving preference  to full time and part time casual labourers in the matter of engagement to GDS 
posts [earlier called Extra Departmental Agents] subject to their willingness and fulfillment of the following conditions:-

(i) They fulfill all the conditions; and
(ii) They have rendered a minimum service of one year [240 days of service in a year reckoned as one year’s service]; and
(iii) They should have been sponsored by employment exchange.

2. Recently, in several court cases filed by the casual labourers who were not given preference for engagement to
GDS posts, due to the fact that they were not initially sponsored through employment exchange as casual labourers,
 the Courts have passed directions for consideration of their cases ignoring the condition of sponsorship through
employment exchange.

3. The issue was accordingly referred to the DKS Chauhan Committee which was constituted
 to look into the various aspects related to Gramin Dak Sevaks.
Considering the recommendation of the Committee on the issue, it has been decided
 by the Department to delete the condition of sponsorship from employment exchange and to allow preference
 in GDS posts to casual labourers [full time and part time] engaged on or before 01.09.1993 subject to fulfillment
of the following conditions:-

(i) They fulfill all the conditions prescribed for GDS post on the date of notification
of the vacancy; and
(ii) They have rendered a minimum service of one year [240 days of service in a
 year reckoned as one year’s service] and continue to be in service.

4. Conditions referred to at Para 2(i) above in terms of prescribed maximum age of 35 years
 [38 years for OBC & 40 years for SC/ST] will be permissible for relaxation to the extent of equal to the
 number of years of service rendered as casual labourer [taking into account not less than 240 days
of service in a year as equal to one year].

5. These orders will take effect from 01.04.2015.

The weight of fuel and light segment would be 6.84 in the new series which is 9.49 in the 2010 series. The weight of clothing and footware segment would be increased to 6.53 from 4.73.

The weight of housing will also be increased to 10.07 from 9.77. Further, the weight of pan, tobacco and intoxicants will be increased to 2.38 from 2.13 in 2010 series. Similarly the weight of miscellaneous will also be increased to 28.32 from 26.31 in the new series.

The number of priced items has been changed from 437 to 448 in rural and from 450 to 460 in urban at all India level. In the revised series, 11 new priced items have also been added, without dropping any item, in rural sector at all India level.
