Discussion in the four-monthly meeting with Chief PMG, Odisha : Untold sufferings of public / staff members for improper functioning of CSI
Today, (29.08.2018), we had an item for discussion in the four-monthly meeting with Chief PMG, Odisha regarding untold sufferings of public / staff members for improper functioning of CSI.
Our item was represented as follows.
We all have experienced that during the entire month of June and July-2018, both the staff members in particular and the members of public in general are forced to suffer due to non-functioning / improper functioning of CSI software including CIS in post offices. Though we have detailed the issues vide our letter P3NFPE-Odisha/03 - 06/2018, dated 27.06.2018, it is highly regretted that neither the our letter was acknowledged nor any development was noticed.
Presently the SAP / PO Back Office login has failed seriously. Treasury and Delivery works are grossly affected. Cash Release / Receipt from / to SOs are not being successful in SAP. Several Hours are consumed to draw a single cheque. Bag Opening / Closing, Postmen beat out, MO Printing, return from Postmen, dispatches of bags are seriously affected. The TCB and Daily Account figures are remaining mismatched regularly. Articles / M Os booked are not being traced and tracked. Raising of tickets before Service Desk is remaining unsuccessful always.
Contradictorily, the Support Team message which is now viral in different social media reads as follows.
“Dear User, We are also facing same SAP slowness issues every day. Sometimes, even we cannot log for hours……… So to resolve this issue kindly as DOP to use something else other than SAP since SAP is not meant to handle such big implementation…….”
This is quite discouraging. The employees are detained till late night regularly. Contradictorily, the CBS CPC is forcing to execute EoD in time. In spite of understanding the genuine reasons of delay, the CPC is executing EoD exparte deactivating the user Id. This has happened last month with Sunhat SO, Azimabad SO, Sergarh and Rupsa SO of Balasore Division. When requested to activate the concerned user ID, the officials dealing with the issue misbehaved to the concerned SPMs as reported to this Circle Union. The plight of the women employees beggar description. Resentments both from the staff and public are mushrooming day by day. Instead, most regretfully, the poor postal employees, especially the Group-C cadre are nipped with iron hand even for petty lapses.
Under the facts and circumstance, this Circle Union requests your immediate kind intervention and suitable action to bring a stop to all the above shortcomings as soon as possible allowing the staff members to work smarter and better rendering effective services to the members of public.
During the course of discussion, the Chief PMG fully agreed with our concern and thanked the patience of our staff members the way they are handling the situation at this critical juncture. The Chief PMG admitted that we have grossly failed to achieve our targets, handle the public complaints and to manage the situation effectively due to the issues arising out of SAP only. As discussed, it will take some more time for satisfactory solution till pan India CSI roll out is over.
We appraised the fact of victimization of our staff members by several Divisional heads when the problem is with SAP only. We represented that when the Chief PMG is aware of the reasons for our current ineffectiveness, then under what circumstances, our staff members are being threatened by several Divisional Heads for disciplinary action for not achieving targets and closing public complaints. When we requested to give a general direction to all Unit Heads in this regard to have sympathy with the operative staff and cooperate with them for effective staff management, the Chief PMG replied that no such case of victimization / harassment case for the above reasons have to come to his notice.
Thus, we request all our staff members to bring such cases of victimization / harassment where the fault lies with the SAP to our notice immediately with facts and figures so that we can try our best to do the needful.

NATIONAL FEDERATION OF POSTAL EMPLOYEES
1st Floor North Avenue Post Office Building, New Delhi-110 001
Ref: PF/IPPB/2018 Dated – 29.08.2018
Shri A. N. Nanda
Department of Posts
Dak Bhawan, New Delhi – 110001
Sub: - Orders for opening of salary accounts of Postal Employees in IPPB.
Ref: - Directorate No. F. No. 17-11/2017 (PBI) dated 07.08.2018.
Your kind attention is invited towards PBI Division, Department of Posts’ letter No. as referred above under which orders have been issued for opening of salary accounts by the officials of Department of Posts.
In this Connection it is worth mentioning that most of the staff has opened salary accounts in POSB. POSB is one of major source of revenue for Department of Posts. If the officials are compelled to open salary accounts in IPPB, most of them will close the POSB Accounts and it will cause more revenue loss to the Department. Earlier also we have opposed opening of salary accounts in Banks on the same ground.
When the entire set up of IPPB is established, why the officials of IPPB are not trying to get the accounts opened by the public.
As we have already mentioned on so many occasions, whether this IPPB is going to be parasite on the shoulders of employees of Postal Department and it will become a liability in future.
It has also come to our notice that the offices of IPPB well equipped with all facilities established in the prime location of Head Post offices will serve as back up office and entire work will be done by Postal Staff. Than it is not understood as to what was the need to take staff on deputation from various Banks on very high salaries and some staff has been taken from Post offices on deputation for whom deputation allowance will be paid.
If this will be the style of functioning of IPPB, it could be managed by the officers of Postal Department.
Further as we are seeing that the IPPB is being launched on 1st September 2018 for which grand celebrations are being organized at all levels and crores and crores rupees amount is being spent.
We oppose this type of extra vagancy on launch of IPPB as a grand celebration as it will yield no fruit full result as the survival and functioning of this bank will depend only on Postal employees. No political leader is going to make any efforts for the functioning of this bank.
It has caused more stress on Postal officers and staff as well to make this occasion a grand festival.
We have not seen this type of celebration even at the time of nationalization of 19 Banks in past.
Based on the above fats we would like to urge upon you, kindly do not make the opening of salary accounts by officials as mandatory.
