Chief Postmaster General, Odisha Circle
Bhubaneswar – 751 001
Sub: Request for enhancement of Financial Assistance from Circle Welfare Fund.
We came to know that Odisha Circle has finalized a list 1741 Departmental Employees and 1568 GDSs for grant of financial assistance at the rate of Rs.4500/- and Rs.5000/- respectively which has been submitted to the Director (Welfare & Sports), Department of Posts, Dak Bhawan, New Delhi – 110 001 for sanction of the estimated amount of Rs.1, 56, 74,500/- by the Directorate for payment to the employees of Odisha Circle affected in the recent cyclonic storm ‘Fani’ on 03.05.2019.
But considering the quantum loss sustained by the employees on one hand and high inflation in the market price now on the other, the above amounts seem to be too meager.
Therefore, we would like to request you to kindly reconsider for 100% enhancement of the present amount of Financial Assistance, i.e. Rs.9000/- for Departmental Employees and Rs.10000/- for GDSs.
An early action in the matter is highly solicited.
