Department of posts may please refer to their Note on page 141/N(F.No.17/31/2016-GDS) seeking concurrence of this Department on the proposal contained in the draft cabinet Note sent along, with that file regarding revision in the pay structure and allowances of Gramin Dak Savaks

2. This Department concurs in the proposal contained in para 7 of the Draft Note for the cabinet, subject to the following conditions:

a) the revised rate of allowances would be given prospective effect, as earlier proposed by Department of Posts and agreed to by this Department as per this Department’s ID Note No.7/31/2006-E.III(A) dated 12.12.2017. This may be clearly mentioned in the Draft Note for the cabinet.

b) so far as the proposal contained in 3.9 of the Draft Note for the Cabinet pertaining to a new incentive scheme and revision of existing incentive scheme is concerned, the introduction of a new incentive scheme, as and when formulated after consultation with the nodal Departments, would require approval of the Cabinet because new incentive scheme would be a new concept and it would have to be seen in the light of the incentives applicable to regular Government servants as well. this may be suitably modified in the Draft Note for the Cabinet

c) Department of posts would ensure that there is no proposal in the draft note for the cabinet at variance with the concurrence earlier given by this Department with the approval of the finance Minister as per this Department’s ID Note No.7/31/2006-E.III (A) dated 12.12.2017

This has the approval of the Finance Minister.

(Amar Nath Singh)
