The undersigned is directed to say that Casual Labourers (Grant of Temporary Status & Regularisation), Scheme of Government of India, 1993, circulated vide DOPT OM No. 51016/2/90-Estt(C) dated 10.09.1993, stipulated conditions for grant of temporary status and regularization of services to the persons recruited on daily wage basis in the Central Government Offices as on 10.09.1993. 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 inemployment 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 offices having 5 days a week). The Scheme inter-alia provided for regularization of CL-TS against Group `D’ posts.
2. Following the acceptance of the recommendation of the 6th CPC, all Group D posts have been upgraded to Group C posts. Recruitment to erstwhile Group `D’ posts placed in Group ‘C’, PB-1, 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 theMinistries/ 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-Estt(C) dated 17th February,2009 had requested all Ministries/ Department to provide information relating to CL-TS on their rolls.

Indian Postal Banking has lots of scope due to connectivity, says Communications Minister

Even with widespread retail banking in place, India’s postal banking service has a large scope due to its connectivity, stressed Communications and IT Minister, Ravi Shankar Prasad on Wednesday (October 29).

Prasad was inaugurating the Postal Savings Banks Forum in New Delhi, which was organised by World Savings and Retail Banking Institute (WSBI) jointly with the National Savings Organisation (Ministry of Finance) and the Department of Posts.

The theme of the forum was “The Rising Force of Postal Banking in the Retail Banking Market”.

According to a statement by the Press Information Bureau of India, post offices hold 1.6 billion savings and deposit accounts globally, which is second to commercial banks that hold about 2.5 billion accounts.

Prasad said that postal banking transcended the rich and poor barrier, the biggest asset being the network of post offices throughout the country.

“The asset, ladies and gentlemen, to my understanding is connectivity. In India, as the Secretary Posts rightly pointed out, we have huge institutions spread all across different parts of India,” he said.

India has more than 150, 000 post offices, more than the 100,000 commercial banks, the statement read. Savings accounts in post offices in the country numbered to 310 million more than that of any commercial bank.

Prasad stressed on postal financial inclusion, saying that government services like India Post had not only given employment to many Indians but were giving impetus to e-commerce which was further giving employment and financial inclusion to the poor. Big e-commerce giants like Amazon employ India Post to deliver their goods to various parts of the country.

With a population exceeding 1.1 billion, a burgeoning middle class and better Internet access, India’s e-commerce potential is huge. Online retail sales are expected to surge to $76 billion by 2021, according to consultants Forrester, and the segment is growing at a much slower pace than other emerging markets, including China.

Prasad further said that the Indian Prime Minister had constituted a task force to deliberate on ideas and innovations for the Indian Postal Services.

“Yes, postal banking is a very exciting idea. I have always been supportive of it. Therefore, the Prime Minister himself has started a big task force headed by eminent officers in which Secretary Posts is also there, to come up with a very structured report outlining the new challenges, the new opportunities and the new way ahead for the Postal Services in India,”said Prasad.

Earlier this year, Modi promised to end “financial untouchability” with the Jan Dhan Yojana or Scheme for the People’s Wealth. The scheme would ensure the majority of households in India, of nearly 1.3 billion people, have a bank account within months.

The government said nearly 15 million people opened accounts at centres around the country on the first day of the programme.

The goal is to open 75 million accounts by January next year.

7 th CPC's visit to Mumbai

In its second phase of interaction, the Commission has started holding meetings in different parts of the country to facilitate stakeholders staying in various areas to present their views personally before the Commission and ensure larger representation. This exercise is being undertaken to enable the Commission to get a first-hand impression about the functioning and the condition of service prevailing in different parts of the country.
Accordingly, the Commission, headed by its Chairman, Justice Shri A. K. Mathur, proposes to visit Mumbai from 6th November, 2014 to 8th November, 2014
