Misconduct against women staff must be dealt with sternly: HC

Mumbai, Oct 4 () Any misconduct against women employees must be dealt with most sternly, the Bombay High Court today said and asked organisations to draw up a list of "dos and dont's" for male employees over conduct towards female staff.
A division bench headed by Justice V M Kanade referred to a judgement of the US Supreme Court and cited that "sexual misconduct cannot be viewed in a vacuum" and that employers and organisations must identify the "underlying threat of violence" in such conduct against women.
The observations were made by the high court while hearing a petition filed by a central government employee seeking action against her superior over allegations of sexual harassment.
The bench today noted that organisations must treat all complaints of sexual harassment seriously and without bias and that it was also necessary to provide safeguards and assistance to female employees.
"In the past, such behaviour would be ignored and terms as part of the work culture. It was even said that men had said or done things inadvertently. But now all organisations must change with the changing times. Any misconduct against women employees must be dealt with most sternly," the court said.
The woman approached the high court after the internal committee at her workplace ruled that while the incidents she had reported against her superior did show that she had been inconvenienced and harassed, the same did not amount to sexual harassment.
The internal committee had penalised and demoted the superior. However, the woman sought harsher punishment for her superior.
The court today denied to increase the punishment and said it need not interfere with the committee's decision.
According to the woman, between 2011 and 2013, her superior made several sexual advances at her and when she began to openly spurn his advances, he resorted to threatening her professional growth and career, insulting and humiliating her in front of other employees, and isolating her by asking others not to talk to her

Digital India is Banking on India Post Payments Banks ( IPPB )

The Post Bank (India Post Payments Bank) the Prime Minister spoke so affectionately about from the ramparts of the Red Fort shouldn't end up being another public sector entity in an already crowded financial services sector.

Digital India requires not just vanilla bank accounts but widespread ability to make and receive electronic payments. The Post bank, designed as a service platform for the financial services sector rather than a narrow competing entity, can play an important role in fast tracking cashless India. We look here at the first scaled up application of the India stack.

Governments do better facilitating and servicing their corporate than competing with them. The Post Bank funded out of public exchequer, leveraging the network of the post office, reach of the postman and brand value of the Government of India needs to transmit resultant value to the entire industry rather appropriate it by itself.

From the customer point of view, this will translate into walking into a post office (more than 155,000), tapping the postman (more than 300,000) or logging on to a single application on a smart device to transact with a service provider of choice.

For retail financial service providers like banks, payment service providers, mutual funds, insurance companies, pension fund managers, forex service providers and money transfer companies, it will mean extended reach to customers and cost saving on high street presence.

For the Post Bank, a platform approach will have several advantages. For one, it will work from a known position of strength of a common service provider rather than a competing agency, something the public sector is not adept.Second, it will be able to garner numbers in a high volume, low margin business. Third, it will attract foot falls from across the board providing cross-selling opportunities. Click below to know more

Fourth, it will serve a larger public purpose as a publicly funded entity . Fifth, it will be able to leverage consequential market intelligence to design and retail its own products much like a multi brand store attracting eye balls for its own products while retailing those of competitors.

As far as financial inclusion is concerned, resultant economies of scale and business efficiencies will make opening and servicing small accounts viable. Global experience suggests the first ladder of financial inclusion is remittance service, second saving accounts and third access to credit. Analytics flowing from the platform can be leveraged for credit scoring of individuals families. The Post Bank, while not licensed to operate credit services, can support related third-party services.

Two developments make the Post Bank an attractive service platform. The requirement of the entity to be registered as a body corporate and regulated by the RBI will imbibe confidence in other players to use its services without being overawed by dealing with the Government of India. Second, the proliferation of interoperable technology in financial services will obviate the development of supporting technology platforms from scratch.

The micro ATM pioneered by the UIDAI and the UPI of NPCI make for immediate roll-out of interoperable banking solutions. Visa and Mastercard have equally smart ready-to-use solutions.

The suggestion is not to down play the Post Bank. contrary, it will be nothing short of the proverbial game changer as the first mover in the financial services aggregator space. In fact, entry barriers will be high for considerable time before a competitor steps in. Systemically, this could be a major shot at deepening the financial services market, promoting cashless economy and supporting Direct Benefit Transfers.

Acceptance of 7th CPC Recommendation on MACP is unjustified and arbitrary: NFIR

The Government has wrongly accepted the recommendation ( 7th CPC MACP), at the same time has been spreading wrong news through the media
National Federation of Indian Railways
3, Chelmsford Road, New Delhi – 110 055

Reacting to the news item appearing in ‘The Hindu’ of 04th October 2016 relating to the acceptance of the recommendation of 7th Central Pay Commission on Modified Assured Career Progress Scheme (MACPS) and the DoP&T OM dated 27th/28th September 2016, the General Secretary said that while the Government has wrongly accepted the recommendation, at the same time has been spreading wrong news through the media. He said that the Scheme has been existing since 1st September 2008 and is not a new scheme as claimed by the Government.

Dr.Raghavaiah further said that while accepting the 7th CPC recommendations relating to the MACP Scheme for Central Government employees, the Government has totally ignored the agreement reached with the JCM (Staff Side) on 17/07/2012 and 27/07/2012 in the Joint Committee and National Advisory Committee Meetings wherein agreement was reached to maintain the same benchmark as is applicable for filling the vacancies through promotion by selection/non-selection/fitness instead of insisting upon the benchmark ‘Very Good’ recommended by the 6th Central Pay Commission. Thereafter, the DoP&T vide OM dated 01st November 2010 and 04th October 2012 issued necessary instructions for granting MACP to the Central Government employees.

The Federation takes note that the Government while accepting the 7th CPC recommendations relating to financial upgradation under MACP Scheme to its employees has again taken U-turn and had once again fixed the benchmark ‘Very Good’ arbitrarily for granting financial upgradation mainly to deny the legitimate benefit to its employees without any dialogue with JCM (Staff Side) – the machinery setup to deal with the issues of Central Government employees which is totally unjustified.

The Federation strongly opposes the move of the Government for which communications have already been sent by the Federation twice to the Cabinet Secretary on 2nd August and 23rd August 2016 to respect the bilateral agreement reached with the JCM (Staff Side) and restore the decision given vide DoP&T OM dated 01/ll/20l0 and 04/10/2012 without making any change on the settled issue.

The General Secretary, NFIR hopes that the Government would consider the above points and rectify the mistake soon duly restoring the earlier instructions of DoP&T to honor the commitment made to the Staff Side.

Meeting with the Chairman GDS Committee

The Chairman, GDS committee covened a meeting by inviting Federations for discussing issues of GDS in the wake of post approval of the recommendations of VII CPC. We submitted a Memorandum to the GDS Committee demanding regularization of GDS as departmental employees and we have given enough justification for regularization. Notwithstanding our earlier Memorandum, we have submitted our views on post approval of the recommendations of VII CPC.

We demanded multiplication factor of 3.25 for GDS while calculating new pay. The Chairman asked for justification for 3.25 factor from the staff side. We replied the following.

1. Central trade Union demands Rs. 18000/- as minimum pay for unskilled labour working in the country. Therefore accepting Rs. 18000/- as minimum pay which was granted by VII CPC is not acceptable.

2. National JCA comprising all Central Govt. Employees Associations / Unions is not accepting minimum pay of Rs. 18000/- fixed by VII CPC to the Central Govt. employees. NJCA is opposing minimum pay of Rs. 18000/- and demanding Rs. 26000/- as minimum pay with enough justification. Therefore our Federation does not accept Rs. 18000/- as minimum pay and 2.57 factor recommended by VII CPC to the GDS.
3)The present day functioning of post office is totally different when compared to earlier. Rural ICT is the slogan of the Govt. now. But for the co-operation of the GDS, the rural ICT is impossible in India Post. Therefore taking into consideration of the changing scenario, such as e-commerce, e-governance, payment bank, the role of GDS is very important. In the world CEO meeting, our Secretary, Dept. of Posts said that future business is lying only with e-commerce. If the Dept. wants success in the e-commerce as in the case of Royal mail, role of GDS is indispensable.

4. The payment Bank will commence functioning from the year 2017. The role of GDS in this regard is inevitable towards success of the payment Bank. Considering the above facts, the GDS pay should be fixed based on the factor 3.25 instead of 2.57 as recommended by the VII CPC.

Clarification on GDS Dharna

Some of the colleagues have given propaganda that SG FNPO & G.S NUGDS joined with the hands NFPE on GDS issues.  Their statement is wrong. We have not joined hands with any one.
The programme of PJCA is common whenever necessary. This is the practice for the last 14 years .
We do not want to explain more in this regard through website. FNPO & NUGDS join agitational programme with NFPE on 03/10/2016 as the situation warrants.
I appeal to FNPO colleagues to organize the following PJCA programme. 
D.Theyagarajan, Secretary General.
