Second UPU World CEO Forum starts in Moscow

18.09.2017 - Some 60 postal chief executives have gathered at the exclusive UPU event, where they will discuss leading multidimensional growth and promising postal business strategies.

The forum, organized by the UPU and hosted by Russian Post, will guide CEOs through the process of diagnosing the environment in which Posts operate before having them determine the exact business models they can implement to progress with changing global dynamics.

UPU Director General Bishar A. Hussein thanked Russia for their gracious hosting in his opening remarks and encouraged all CEOs to take an active role in discussions.

“We want you to embrace this forum as a critical space where your views, ideas and inputs into the UPU can be harnessed and channelled,” said the Director General.

For his part, Russian Post CEO Nikolay Podguzov added that forum participants should not only keep in mind, but also take advantage of the Post’s unique role as a public-facing organization in all reaches of the world. 

“This is why Posts need to diversify to create more sustainable and profitable business opportunities,” he explained. 

High-level support

Also present to welcome CEOs were several high-level guests from the Russian Federation, including Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich and Deputy Minister of Telecommunications and Mass Media Rashid Ismailov. Both stressed the postal sector’s critical role as a public infrastructure network.

“The digital economy is characterized by growth rates and will become the main driver for growth of the global market and inclusion of populations, which means there needs to be development in infrastructure to match this,” explained Dvorkovich.

“The Post is something that exists in some places where there is nothing else, we cannot live without the Post,” he said.

Ismailov reiterated the importance of the Post as an intermediary for public services, adding that the forum would “play a positive role in the development of the postal industry by facilitating [Posts’] cooperation”.

Second edition

The 2017 event is the second edition of the forum, which was designed by the UPU as an exclusive space for CEOs to discuss the latest challenges and opportunities facing the industry.

Their first day of deliberations focused on the sector’s current challenges in a changing global environment before examining how postal operators are meeting the needs of two important stakeholders: governments and customers.

Tomorrow, forum participants will examine the gap between customer expectations and what the Posts are doing about it, finishing with business strategies they can take back to their organizations.

Tune into #UPUCEOs on Twitter to follow along with the discussions.

Clean India Mission prioritizes behavioural change

*K V Venkatasubramanian

Till three years ago, millions of people across India, mostly the rural population and many in urban regions, were nonchalant about performing their early morning rituals, particularly relieving themselves anywhere out in the open. They were unconcerned about hygiene, and diseases that could afflict them. Parents were exposing their children to grave dangers.

All these have changed considerably for the better following Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s call for a Swachh Bharat with universal sanitation by October 2, 2019 (Mahatma Gandhi’s150th birth anniversary). Down this period, open defecation, a way of life over centuries, has been curtailed.

Universal sanitation is at the core of India’s development agenda. Till 2014, only 39 percent people had access to safe sanitation facilities. As the Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM) completes three years, five states, nearly 200 districts and nearly 2.4 lakh villages across the country have declared themselves open defecation free (ODF). Besides,1.5 lakh villages have ranked themselves on the village Swachhta Index based on solid and liquid waste management in villages.

Improved sanitation has resulted in major household savings. Every rupee invested in improving sanitation leads to a saving of Rs 4.30, shows a recent independent study by UNICEF to estimate the cost benefits of the SBM. On an average, the cost-benefit ratio was 430 percent, “considering on one hand the expenditure from households and the government, and on the other hand the financial savings induced by improved sanitation,” the study found. The benefits are the highest for the poorest quintile of the population.

Besides, in fully ODF communities, an average family that invests in a toilet saves around Rs 50,000 per year--considering medical costs and mortality averted, and also time savings. The study, carried out in 10,000 rural households randomly selected across 12 states, found that 85 percent of family members use their latrines. The survey was conducted to measure the economic impact of sanitation at a household level.

Parameswaran Iyer, Secretary, Ministry of Water and Sanitation, says an independent survey conducted across 140,000 households by the Quality Council of India found that “household toilet usage stands at 91 per cent."

Accessible and secure toilets have induced a big qualitative change in villagers’ lives, especially women who were forced to defecate in the open in darkness, suffering mental torture—with their safety, security and dignityimperilled.

Want of access to proper sanitation prompts high health and economic outlay: it costs India 6 percent of its GDP every year. Research has highlighted an indisputable link between toilets, malnutrition and irreversible stunting. For the populace continuously exposed to a faecally-contaminated environment, absence of a toilet can have far-reaching effects. Insanitation affects children leading to 100,000 deaths due to diarrhoeal diseases. Nearly 40 percent of India’s children are physically and cognitively stunted, according to the World Bank.

A major challenge facing the government is to bring about behavioural change in people’s mindsets, especially among rural masses—totally different from building a toilet, an infrastructure programme, that can be accomplished.  It is focusing on this most important factor, which requires dealing with a centuries-old deep-rooted habit of people going out (to defecate) and then getting them to talk about it. Several interpersonal techniques through community approaches to sanitation are being used across the country to trigger behavioural change; fundamental to the SBM.

“Beyond the hundreds of thousands of toilets being built, "a genuine prioritisation of behaviour change interventions is taking place,” says Nicolas Osbert, Chief of WASH (Water, Sanitation, Hygiene), UNICEF India.

To strengthen and take the mission forward, the Centre, under an accelerated fortnight-long campaign “Swachhta hi Seva” (cleanliness is service), is executing a series of activities--such as cleaning toilets, bus stands, movie halls, railways stations, public halls and more. The campaign will culminate with Swachh Bharat Diwas on October 2.

Efforts are on to move beyond the current drive for open defecation-free cities and work towards faecal sludge management for a safe urban environment without any risk to land and rivers. Every day, India generates a colossal 1.7 million tonnes of faecal waste. About 78 percent of this sludge (human excreta and water mixture) remains untreated and is dumped into rivers, groundwater or lakes in the absence of proper treatment systems. Sludge contains disease-carrying bacteria and pathogens and poses threat to health.

Youths and other stakeholders are being encouraged to come up with innovative solutions to problems for sustainable, environmental-friendly and affordable toilet technology for hilly, dry, flood-prone and remote areas; novel technological solutions to monitor usage of toilets and bring behavioural change for toilet usage and hygiene;

They have been invited to suggest unconventional models and methods to improve operation and maintenance of school toilets; pioneering solutions for menstrual health management and innovative solutions for early decomposition of faecal matter.

Unlike earlier open-ended programmes, the mission has been put on a fast track to accomplish the sunset clause--an ODF India by constructing 12 million toilets. Realising that this is a difficult and time-consuming venture involving behaviour change, sanitation has been made everyone’s business—be it the pradhan or the collector or the Member of Parliament. It is being operated through the Prime Minister, chief ministers, district magistrates, VMs (village mukhiyas). Also, an army of swachhagrahis has been created and nukkad nataks (street plays) have been promoted.

Behavioural change is being motivated through mass media and interpersonal messages communicated by celebrities, who are creating awareness about the ill-effects of open defecation.

No exclusive pacts for India Post Payments Bank


Mumbai: India Post Payments Bank (IPPB) will follow a business strategy of putting up payment platforms in the form of public infrastructure that can be used by all players. The bank has said that it would not enter into an exclusive deal with any participant. 

"Of the 11 payments banks that are licensed, we are the only one that is government-owned. There is a difference in terms of our business objective. We do not seek profit but want to create public value," said A P Singh, CEO, IPPB. 

"We will be putting up payment infrastructure that can be used by all — banks, e-wallet companies, insurance companies. Basically, we will shun exclusivity and there will be no discrimination on anyone coming on our platform," said Singh. He was speaking at the Digital Money 2017 conference that marked 10 years of the digital payment industry. 

IPPB, which was launched in January, has opened eight access points — four in Jharkhand and four in Chhattisgarh. "Since, we are a post office and have a large customer base, acquiring customers is not a problem. But getting them to transact is a huge challenge," said Singh. He added that offering higher interest rates on savings was not working. 

IPPB has started business with a paid up capital of Rs 125 crore from the government. It has also received Rs 375 crore as grant-in-aid according to the Output-Outcome Framework for Schemes 2017-18 for the department of posts. 

"The grant is to deepen and widen the market, not just for us but for everyone. The postman will do assisted transactions and help self-service transactions," added Singh.Speaking at the summit Srikrishnan H, MD & CEO,Jio Payments Bank (a joint venture between Reliance Industries and SBI), said that the journey for digital finance through the e-wallet route did not seem to be valid any more and the stored value model is not holding good. 

Aditya Birla Idea Payments Bank MD & CEO Sudhakar Ramasubramanian said that although telco-promoted banks could get the size and scale, the challenge was to get customers to transact. "For payment banks, this is a daily labour model. We do not have the advantage of annuity income that a 'spread' business brings," he added.

introduction of new menu CCIFINQ to find out the CIF ID of the customer (both verified and unverified) using Aadhar or mobile number

​Dear All,

Please see the trail mail received from DDG (FS) regarding introduction of new menu CCIFINQ to find out the CIF ID of the customer (both verified and unverified) using Aadhar or mobile number. Refer the screenshots populated in trail mail for the menu operation.

    It's also requested to ensure that for a customer across DOP only one CIF is opened. Multiple CIFs across multiple SOLs should not be opened for the single customer. Single CIF opened for the customer in any SOL should be used across any SOL for opening of account in DOP.

In case of multiple CIFs for the same customer is found during account opening or CIF creation operation, then CIF linked to the ATM card issued SB account should be taken as standard CIF.  SB linked CIF should be updated as CIF for all types of account across all the SOLs by concerned home SOL of the account using HCCA menu (CIF merger). CIF for SB account which is issued with ATM card should not be changed as it'll lead to disabling of active ATM cards.

FYI and necessary action please.

Thanks & regards,

Inadequate arrangement for implementation of 12th May orders!

AIPRPA CHQ Emails to Secretary DoP on inadequacy in arrangements for implementation of 12.05.2017 Orders!

The CHQ has emailed to Secretary Department of Posts about the inadequate arrangements for completing the pension re-fixation to all Pre-2016 Pensioners before 30.09.2017. The CHQ also communicated that there will be demonstrations by Postal Pensioners between 5th and 10th of October in front of HPOs / Divisional Offices and a mass dharna mobilisation in front of Office of GM Finance / or DAP / or Chief PMG on 11.10.2017 to focus the attention on this issue as well as on other important postal pensioners issues.

The Secretary

Department of Posts

Dak Bhawan

New Delhi – 110001

Sir,

Sub: Implementation of 12th May orders of Pension Ministry – Inadequate arrangement of implementation – regarding.

This All India Postal & RMS Pensioners Association is constrained to bring to your kind notice that the arrangement to implement the 12.05,2017 pension refixation orders of Pension Ministry to all Pre-2016 Pensioners and Family Pensioners of Department of Posts is quite inadequate and insufficient. Another order of the Department of Posts to complete the implementation before 30.09.2017 may not be fulfilled on the face of large number of Pre-2016 Pensioners and Family Pensioners for whom only a handful of staff are assigned the work.

The small number of staff in DAP Offices are not going to complete the work in time despite the availability of software to work out the fixation. The earlier suggestion of this Association for considering formation of ‘Implementation Cells’ with expert retired APM Accounts and retired AAOs and AOs in sufficient number employed by the Department under the supervision of serving AOs etc is not being followed in all places. It may take several months to complete the work at the present speed with the present small team of staff attending to the refixation work. The Pensioners and Family Pensioners are very much worried about the possible time it may consume before they could actually get the increased fixation.

This Association in the circumstances has no other option but to focus the issue by organising demonstrations in front of HPOs / Divisional Offices from 5th to 10th of October and a massive dharna in front of Office of GM Finance / or DAP / or Chief PMG on 11.10.2017 by the Postal and RMS Pensioners. Incidentally the Dharna will focus other important issues of Pensioners also.

This Association will be grateful if the Postal Directorate could ensure adequate measures for completing the refixation of pension to all Pre-2016 Pensioners / Family Pensioners within a strict time frame of 31.10.2017.

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,

Your postman may soon become the point of contact for all your financial work. Read how

NEW DELHI: Come 2018 and the humble postman will be armed with a high-tech device that will enable him to carry out various financial transaction at the door step of people. 

The India Post Payment Bank, which plans to launch nationwide operations by March 2018, is coming up with a large contract to source such devices for more than 1.5 lakh postmen. 

The equipment, a micro-ATM of sorts, will have a biometric reader, a printer and a debit card and credit card reader attached to it. A tender for 2 lakh such devices is almost ready and will be released in a month’s time, India Post Payment Bank chief executive AP Singh told ET. Hewlett Packard Enterprise has already been chosen to build the backend for India Post Payment Bank as a system integrator. 

“The idea is to streamline and focus on payments through the bank. We have identified close to one dozen payments, including utility bills such as gas and electricity, mobile, DTH, school fees, etc.”, which the payments bank will seek to facilitate, Singh said. India Post is working on an app that will enable these payments. 

It will also allow booking of bus and unreserved train tickets, categories which are highly cash dependant. “Even small payments such as for fruits and vegetable, and welfare payment transfers under the direct benefits transfer scheme are on the radar,” said Singh. 

“We have to focus on payments rather than deposits,” said Singh. Reserve Bank of India rules don’t allow payments banks to take deposits, the key and cheap source of funds for conventional banks. To generate revenue, India Post Payment Bank will charge each payment transaction that happens through its app, either from the customer or the bill company, Singh said. 

“The Post Office already has 35 crore accounts, we are targeting around 8 crore households in the next five years (as customers for the payments bank).” 

At a recent UN conference, Singh had said while private sector rivals such as Paytm and Airtel Payments Bank would skim the market from the top, India Post would have a bottoms up approach. Arming the postman with the micro-ATM and turning him into a sort of a banking correspondent may be part of the plan to target rural and the semi-urban areas. 

“The micro ATM and the banking correspondent model has been tried and may help in turning cash into digital at the last leg, even though it may take some time,” said Vivek Belgavi, partner and India FinTech Leader at PwC. 

In a village, the nearest bank branch may be 10-25 kms away and the India Post, with its huge network of post offices and postmen, may be able to effectively cater to that audience, he added. The proposed India Post app will allow person-to-person transactions. 

In the dozen key bill payments it is targeting, those who aren’t familiar with operating an app on their own can approach the postmen armed with micro-ATMs to help them make payments. 

Meanwhile, as opposed to the earlier plan of having separate branches for the payment bank, India Post is looking to capitalise on the existing network of 1.55 lakh post offices and 3 lakh employees on the postal network.

Government enhances superannuation age of Doctors to 65 years

Government enhances superannuation age of doctors to 65 years

A visionary and pragmatic decision that will strengthen the health services in the country: J P Nadda

The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has approved the enhancement of superannuation age of doctors other than doctors of the Central Health Services (CHS) falling under various Departments/Ministries/autonomous organisations, to 65 years. Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare, Shri J P Nadda, welcomed the Cabinet decision and stated that it is a very visionary and pragmatic decision that will strengthen the health services in the country. “Through this forward looking step, the services of experienced doctors shall be available to bring quality health services to the people. It will help in retaining the existing strength of experienced doctors thereby providing better

Terming the decision to be people-centered and pro-patient, Shri Nadda further stated that it will address the shortage of doctors. “This is a strong signal that the Government is taking all steps to enhance services/service delivery. This would also help in improving doctor-patient ratio in the country,” Shri Nadda said.

Speaking further on the cabinet decision, Shri Nadda said that the decision will help in proper academic activities in Medical Colleges as also in effective implementation of national health programmes for delivery of health care services. “The decision may not have much financial implications as large numbers of posts are lying vacant and the present incumbents would continue to work in their existing capacity against sanctioned posts. Around 1445 doctors of various Ministries/Departments of the Central Government would be benefitted,” Shri Nadda informed.

According to the Cabinet decision, the superannuation age of doctors under the administrative control of the respective Ministries/Departments [M/o AYUSH (AYUSH Doctors), Department of Defence (civilian doctors under Directorate General of Armed Forces Medical Service), Department of Defence Production (Indian Ordnance Factories Health Service Medical Officers), Dental Doctors under D/o Health & Family Welfare, Dental doctors under Ministry of Railways and of doctors working in Higher Education and Technical Institutions under Department of Higher Education) has been enhanced to 65 years.

The Union Cabinet has approved ex-post facto, the enhancement of superannuation age of doctors working in Central Universities and IITs (Autonomous Bodies) under Department of Higher Education to 65 years; and approved enhancement of superannuation age of doctors in Major Port Trusts (Autonomous Bodies) under Ministry of Shipping to 65 years.

The Union Cabinet has approved that doctors shall hold the administrative posts till the date of attaining the age of 62 years and thereafter their services shall be placed in non-administrative positions.

 No action on last-minute graft complaints against bureaucrats: CVC

No action will be taken on last- minute corruption complaints against bureaucrats when they are being considered for senior-level posts or promotions, the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) has said.


The announcement may come as a relief to bureaucrats, some of whom complain of a rise in motivated allegations of corruption against them ahead of a proposed promotion, empanelling or posting.


The CVC provides vigilance clearance to central government officers for senior-level appointments and promotions.


Central Vigilance Commissioner K V Chowdary said any complaint received within six months of a proposed elevation or empanelment etc would not to be taken into account.


"Generally there is a trend of complaints coming up just before somebody gets either promoted or is about to be considered for a post. By and large, it is there," Chowdary told PTI.


However, he added a rider to the provision, saying "misconduct" would not be ignored.


"If a misconduct itself is conducted, let's say, yesterday or the day before yesterday, you cannot be immune to that," he said.

Chowdary had earlier advocated penal provisions to deter people from filing motivated or vexatious complaints.

Government will not change financial year for now

The government will not change the fiscal year for now but the issue remains under "examination" and the Budget for 2018-19 will be presented in early February, senior government sources have said. 

There are several reasons behind the government not going for an overhaul of the fiscal year from April-March to January-December. There is a view within the government that it would be better to get a sense of revenue receipts after the rollout of the goods and services tax (GST) before going for any major change. The government wants to ensure the system stabilises after GST implementation and a clearer picture of revenue collection appears. 

The fact that the economy is emerging from the impact of two large-scale reforms such as GST and demonetisation is also weighing on the minds of policymakers before they embark on another major change. 

Changing the financial year would mean a major overhaul of all financial practices that follow the April-March fiscal year and including the tax payments calendar. It would also mean changes for companies and the manner in which they file their results. "The change in fiscal year will not happen this year. The issue is still under examination. 

We will see," said a senior government source. He said that after the presentation of the Budget in early February, the government will examine the issue in detail and arrive at a decision.

The government changed the date for presenting the Budget this year from the last day of February to the first week this year. A panel headed by former chief economic adviser Shankar Acharya was set up to examine the possibility of changing the financial year, which begins on April 1.

7th Pay Commission: Modi Govt Is Anti-Employees, Feel Central Govt Employees.



Bhubaneswar/New Delhi: The Central government employees were happy prior to the implementation of the 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) but since the day of its implementation, a huge disappointment has engulfed all. They were to get the fruit of 10 years of hard work but all that they received is a e fruit, says a Bhubaneswar-based retired employee of the Indian Railways.

There is news that the Modi government will increase the minimum pay to Rs 21,000 next year. But will it have any impact on the employees’ financial position…? Not at all! They have become a victim of anti-employee policies of the Central government, he added.

The Central government employees have got an average hike of 14.27 per cent in basic pay under the 7th CPC, which they protested and demanded further hike in the minimum pay. The government is also likely to increase the basic pay to Rs 21,000 from the present Rs 18,000, but the employees stand firm on their demand of increasing it to Rs 26,000.

Besides, the employees want arrears on the revised pay. “If the government will increase the minimum pay as per its own convenience and doesn’t even give arrears on it, it can’t be brought into play. Increase the minimum pay to Rs 26,000 and don’t give arrears, if want so,” said a Central Income Tax employee.

If the Narendra Modi-led BJP government will not consider the demands of the Central government employees, it will affect the party’s prospects in the 2019 general elections. People have now got to know that the saffron party’s words or promises are just like bubbles, says a disappointed senior clerk working at Central Vigilance Department in Odisha.

“NDA government is the worst one for the Central government employees. Common and poor people, including the Indian Armed Forces personnel are worst hit,” said SK Nair Kulengara working with the Indian Navy.

The employee unions have already conveyed their feelings to the Finance minister Arun Jaitley that the present pay hike under the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission is not enough as it comes after ten years. Hope, the demand to raise it by Rs 8,000 more will be considered by the good office of the minister,” said another employee of the Indian Navy.

Besides, the employees feel that after the 7th pay scale, the pay gap between the highest maximum pay and the lowest minimum pay is 1:14 but it was 1:12 in the 6th CPC and so, it must be reduced.

Instruction regarding issuing Insta ATM Card in SB Acccount


It’s observed and has come to the notice of this office that many SOLs are sending Instant ATM cards to the customers by ordinary/Registered post by noting the address on the envelopes which is available in CIFs. It’s highly irregular, sending Instant ATM cards by post, as both ATM card and PIN will be available in the same envelope and might lead to fraudulent transactions.

This office is receiving many such Instant cards back as undelivered due to insufficient address. 


As per procedure, when a customer approaches the counter, Instant card has to be issued at that time only after obtaining/verifying the KYC documents and updating all the relevant details at CIF level which is mandatory. It should not be sent through Post to customer as both PIN and ATM Card will be in the same envelope and anyone could misuse the card at this stage, if it's wrongly delivered or lost in transit and fraud might be committed.

Such instances shows that the SOLs are issuing cards to SB account holders with or without consent of the depositor and then dispatching Instant cards along with PINs stuffed in a single envelope to depositors' addresses which will lead to misappropriation of funds of DOP customer for which concerned official/s of the SOL will be responsible/answerable. Any fraudulent transactions occurring due to above practices will be recovered from the defaulted officials.

This is for your kind information and strict instructions to all concerned.

​Thanks & regards,
