Postal cover, coin, statue to mark Mother Teresa's sainthood

Press Trust of India
To mark Mother Teresa's sainthood ceremony in Vatican on September 4, a postal cover, coin and statue will be dedicated to the late Roman Catholic nun.

Made of pure silk, India Post will release a special postal and numismatic cover of Mother Teresa, the first of its kind, on September 2.

"A five-rupee commemorative coin issued by the Indian government in 2010 to mark the centenary birth celebrations of the legend will be engraved on the cover. This is a special feature as it combines the two collectible items of coins and stamps," eminent philatelist Alok K Goyal, who designed the stamps, said.

The collectors' item will be released in a limited edition of 1,000 pieces.

Besides this, the Republic of Macedonia, where Teresa was born in 1910, has also announced to release a special gold-plated silver coin on the Nobel laureate.

The coin will have a face value of 100 Macedonian Denars and will be released next month.

Up to 5,000 pieces of the coin will be minted for the global market out of which 50 will be made available for the Indian market, said Goyal, an international dealer in unusual stamps and coins.

At the centre of the coin is a statue of Mother Teresa dressed in her trademark plain white sari with three blue stripes along its border.

The coin also has the image of a clematis flower known as "Matka Teresa" (Mother Teresa) bred by Stefan Franczak, Polish Jesuit monk.

It also carries the Latin inscription "Sancta Teresia de Calcutta" (Saint Teresa of Calcutta).
"We are hoping that this coin will be a hit not only in the Indian market but all over the world as she has her fans in every corner," Goyal, who represents the International Coin House in India, said.

In Kolkata, where Mother Teresa had worked all her life and established the Missionaries of Charity, a life-size bronze statue of her will be installed at the Bishop House next to the statue of Pope John Paul II this Thursday, on the eve of her birth anniversary.

Built by Church Art, a Kolkata-based firm engaged in making various works of art, the 5.5 feet long statue is made of bronze imported from Italy.

The statue has been donated by Namit Bajoria, Designate Honorary Consul of the Republic of Macedonia in Kolkata.

Teresa was born in Skopje, the capital city of Republic of Macedonia, before she left her parental home as an 18-year-old to join the Sisters of Loreto, an Irish Community of nuns with missions in India.

For over 40 years, she served the poorest of the poor and disabled on the streets of Kolkata. For her services, she received 124 awards and distinctions, including the Nobel Peace Prize and the Bharat Ratna.

At a gala ceremony on September 4, she will be declared a saint by the Church which has recognised two miracles she was said to have carried out after her death in 1997.

The government of Macedonia has also announced that they will mark the declaration of Mother Teresa as a saint with several events.

Instructions regarding timely issue of Charge-sheet – DoPT Orders on 23.8.2016

Establishment A-III Desk
North Block, New Delhi — 110001

Dated August 23, 2016

Subject: Central Civil Services (Classification, Control and Appeal) Rules, 1965 – instructions regarding timely issue of Charge-sheet – regarding.

The undersigned is directed to refer to DoP&T’s O.M. No.11012/17/2013-Estt.A-III dated 3rd July, 2015 on the above mentioned subject and to say that in a recent case, Ajay Kumar Choudhary vs Union of India Civil Appeal No. 1912 of 2015 dated 16/02/2015, the Apex Court has directed as follows:

“14 We, therefore, direct that the currency of a Suspension Order should not extend beyond three months if within this period the Memorandum of Charges/Chargesheet is not served on the delinquent officer/employee; if the Memorandum of Charges/Charge sheet is served a reasoned order must be passed for the extension of the suspension. As in the case in hand, the Government is free to transfer the concerned person to any Department in any of its offices within or outside the State so as to sever any local or personal contact that he may have and which he may misuse for obstructing the investigation against him. The Government may also prohibit him from contacting any person, or handling records and documents till the stage of his having to prepare his defence Furthermore, the direction of the Central Vigilance Commission that pending a criminal investigation departmental proceedings are to be held in abeyance stands superseded in view of the stand adopted by us.”

2. In compliance of the above judgement, it has been decided that where a Government servant: is placed under suspension, the order of suspension should not extend beyond three months, if within this period the charge-sheet is not served to the charged officer. As such, it should be ensured that the charge sheet is issued before expiry of 90 days from the date of suspension. As the suspension will lapse in case this time line is not adhered to, a close watch needs to be kept at all levels to ensure that charge sheets are issued in time.

3. It should also be ensured that disciplinary proceedings are initiated as far as practicable in cases where an investigating agency is seized of the matter or criminal proceedings have been launched. Clarifications in this regard have already been issued vide O.M. No. 11012/6/2007-Estt.A-Ill dated 21.07.2016.

4. All Ministries/ Departments/Offices’ are requested to bring the above guidelines to the notice of all Disciplinary Authorities under their control.

5. Hindi version will follow.

Respected Viewers,

                 I wish to share the following on the counting the period of Induction and practical training for MACPS in the Department Of Posts. Hitherto the training period has not been taken into account for the grant of promotion under MACPS. On perusal of the rulings on the subject, it seems that the period of training is to be taken into account for MACPS also. Whether this period is included for MACPS in other circles, is not known.

                 A kind reference is invited to the following orders on the subject.                     
1.Dte letter no 4-7/(MACPS)/2009-PCC dt 18.9.2009

2. Dte letter no 4-7/(MACPS)/2009-PCC dt 23.6.2016

            All the candidates selected for PA cadre are to undergo Induction and practical training for 90/105 days, before regular appointment.

1.      Such period of training was not counted for anything and their pay and allowances, increments were regulated from their actual date of joining in the department as Postal Assistants.

2.      Subsequently, orders were issued for counting the training period for increments and for the promotions (financial upgradations) under TBOP and BCR schemes, vide Dept. of Personnel and Trg OM 16/16/92-Estt(pay I) dt 31.3.1992.

3.      The above provision was made applicable with effect from 1.1.1986. The pay of the officials was notionally fixed from 1.1.1986 to 30.9.1990 and on actual basis from 1.10.1990.

4.      The above provision was applicable to those officials who underwent training on or after 1.1.1986.

5.      The provision was extended to officials who underwent training before 1.1.86 videDte order number: 44-2/2011-SPB II dated 5.5.2016. The list of officials is called for by DO and the same has been submitted to DO.

6.      The scheme of MACPS was introduced consequent on the implementation of 6th CPC with effect from 1.1.2006.

7.      This scheme was given effect from 1.9.2008 vide reference cited under 1 above.

8.      The salient features of the scheme were given in the Annexure-I to the communication cited under 2 above.

9.      The second sentence of para 9 of the Annexure read as follows: “Service rendered on adhoc/contract basis before regular appointment or pre-appointment training shall not be taken into reckoning. A casual reading of the text gives the meaning that the pre-appointment training shall not be taken into reckoning. Under this context, the training period was omitted for the grant of MACP to the officials, it is presumed.

10.  But a close reading of the above text gives a different but correct meaning. The meaning of the above text may be explained as follows. If the sentence is broken into smaller parts, they read as follows.

a.      Service rendered on adhoc/contract basis before regular appointment shall not be taken into reckoning.

b.      Service rendered on adhoc/contract basis before pre-appointment training shall not be taken into reckoning.

11.  From (a) and (b) above it is clear that only the service, if any, rendered on adhoc/contract basis either before regular appointment or before pre-appointment training shall not be taken into reckoning.

12.  From the above it is clear that pre-appointment training shall count for MACPS, as the above text speaks only about the services rendered on adhoc or contract basis which might before regular appointment or before pre-appointment training, and nothing about the training period.

13.  As per the communication cited under 2 above, the second sentence of para 9 is modified as follows: “service rendered on adhoc/contract basis before regular appointment on pre-appointment training shall not be taken into reckoning.

14.  From the above it is clear that any service rendered on adhoc/contract basis will not count, but the training period counts for the grant of promotion under MACPS. It is added that as per our departmental rules, the training period is neither treated as service on adhocbasis nor on contract basis in as much as this period counts for increment and also for TBOP/BCR promotions.

15.  For clarity sake consider the following rule of our department. “ Air journey on LTC is not permissible” which means that no government servant is entitled for air journey on LTC but LTC can be availed. This does not take away the privileges granted under LTC. The restriction is for air journey only.

16.  Also as per the developments taken place towards the counting of training period for service, the training period counts for increment and TBOP/BCR schemes.

17.  It is added that just like TBOP/BCR schemes, MACPS is also a financial upgradation only. Hence the provision of counting training period towards TBOP/BCR will squarely applicable to MACPS also.

Those officials, who have completed 16/26 years’ service before 1.9.2008, had no problems, as their pay would have been fixed on the date of promotion to TBOP/BCR schemes prior to 1.9.2008. If the training period is included, the date of promotion to TBOP/BCR would be advanced and their pay would be refixed accordingly.

In case of the officials who have got their MACP after 1.9.2008, the date of MACPS is to be advanced.
