CL of staff to be deducted on reaching office late

New Delhi:) Cracking the whip on lax babus, the Women and Child Development Department of the Delhi government would now deduct one casual leave for every three times an official reaches office after 9.45 am, besides seeking a written explanation from them.

The move comes after it was observed by the department that some officials posted at WCD Headquarters were not reaching office even till 9.45 am.
The department has issued a memorandum, stating that all officers and officials will ensure punctuality in reaching their respective office.

“As per order, one day CL will be deducted for every three late comings after 9.45 am and the officer and officials will also submit the explanation,” Deputy Director (admin) S K Srivastava said in the memorandum.

In case of non availability of CL in the leave account of officials concerned, EL (earned leave) will be deducted, the memorandum said.

“Further, all the branch in-charges of WCD (HQ) are hereby directed to obtain the CL applications from the officers/official and directed to ensure punctuality of officers and officials working under their control,” it stated.

An online platform has been launched for central government employees to apply for leave and access their service-related information, according to an official statement issued today. Minister of State for Personnel Jitendra Singh launched the electronic-Human Resource Management System (e-HRMS) as the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions observed Good Governance Day. “With launch of e-HRMS, employees will be able to not only see all their details with respect to service book, leave, GPF, salary, etc. but also apply for different kind of claims/reimbursements, loan/advances, leave, leave encashment, LTC advances, tour etc. on a single platform,” the statement by the personnel ministry said. Employees shall not be dependent on the administration for updating data. They may themselves update it with their login subject to verification, it said. “They will be able to track status and match details instantly. The system is designed in a way to obtain all management-related inputs/reports through its dashboard and all pendency of data updating as well as claims will be seen online by senior authorities that will instill more responsibility and accountability among all government servants,” the statement read.
This is a step in the direction of a fully automated human resource management system with a target to bring all government employees on employee portal so that all processes of personnel management from hiring to retiring will be on digital platform and manual system of handling personnel management will be dispensed with, it said. The e-service book, which carries all service-related details of an employee, launched for the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) in March will also be integrated into the e-HRMS, the statement said. The minister launched 25 applications of five modules of the system.
The five modules include personal information system which has functionalities of self-updating by employees and the one for claiming and subsequent sanctioning of all kind of leaves. The third module is on the Leave Travel Concession (LTC), loan/advances— where all kind of loan and advances can be claimed, sanctioned and paid through — and on tours that allow submission of a tour-related application and sanctioning of travel allowance advances. “The availability of online data of employees will help the organisation to take many administrative decisions easily like planning of recruitments, posting of officials to a task as per their experience and qualification, easily available online to the administration,” according to the statement.
It will also help employees to concentrate more on public service once free from personal anxiety of getting their work done, it said. “That will enhance public delivery and more employees will be available for the core work of the government,” the statement said. The availability of centralized data will enable government for policy research and planning as such educational qualifications and other competencies and deficiencies may be easily obtained, it said. “It will enable government to take transfer and posting decisions more pragmatically based on reliable first hand data,” the statement read.

Rural Post offices in a Modern form – Darpan (Digital Advancement of Rural Post Office for A New India)



 The Minister of Communications Shri Manoj Sinha today launched DARPAN – “Digital Advancement of Rural Post Office for A New India” Project to improve the quality of service, add value to services and achieve “financial inclusion” of un-banked rural population. He said, the goal of the IT modernization project with an outlay of Rs. 1400 Crore is to provide a low power technology solution to each Branch Postmaster (BPM) which will enable each of approximately 1.29 Lakhs Branch Post Offices (BOs) to improve the level of services being offered to rural customers across all the states. Shri Sinha said that as on date, 43,171 Branch Post Offices have migrated under the “DARPAN”projectwith the aim of financial inclusion to rural population and it is targeted to complete the project by March, 2018.
The Project shall increase the rural reach of the Department of Posts and enable BOs to increase traffic of all financial remittances, savings accounts, Rural Postal Life Insurance, and Cash Certificates; improve mail operations processes by allowing for automated booking and delivery of accountable article; increase revenue using retail post business; provide third party applications; and make disbursements for social security schemes such as MGNREGS.
As part of IT modernization project, the Department of Posts (DoP) has carried out business process reengineering across various functional areas and has created To-Be processes that will enable it to achieve these objectives. As an achievement, Department of Posts has established 991 ATMs across the country, which are interoperable with other banks and the common people has directly benefited with the wide network of Department of Posts especially in rural areas. Till now, 1,12,85,217 transactions have been carried out on the DOP’s ATMs out of which 70,24,214 transactions have been done by the non-DOP customers. Department of Posts is the only Government player in this space.  
For more than 150 years, the Department of Posts (DoP) has been the backbone of the country’s communication and has played a crucial role in the country’s socio-economic development. It touches the lives of Indian citizens in many ways: delivering mails, accepting deposits under Small Savings Schemes, providing life insurance cover under Postal Life Insurance (PLI) and Rural Postal Life Insurance (RPLI) and providing retail services like bill collection, sale of forms, etc. The Department of Posts also acts as an agent for Government of India in discharging other services for citizens such as Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS) wage disbursement and old age pension payments. With 1.5 lakh Post Offices (approximately), the Department of Posts has the most widely distributed postal network in the world.
Trends such as urbanization, increased demand for financial services, increased funding by the government for the weaker sections and the rural sector, have opened up new opportunities for the Department of Posts,which in turn has necessitated development of new processes and supporting technology. The Department of Posts is also faced with twin challenges of increasing competition and continuing advances in communication technology, especially in mobile telephony and the Internet. In order to provide the best-in-class customer service, deliver new services and improve operational efficiencies,the Department of Posts has undertaken an end to end IT modernization project to equip itself with requisite modern tools and technologies. The IT modernization project intends to achieve the following:
  1. Wider reach to the Indian populace through more customer interaction channels
  2. Better customer service
III. Growth through new lines of business
  1. IT enablement of business processes and support functions

Commemorative Postage Stamp on Shri Shirdi Sai Baba


India Post has issued a commemorative postage stamp of Shri Shirdi Sai Baba on 15th December 2017. Earlier a stamp was issued on Shirdi Sai Baba in 2008. Shirdi Sai Baba, was an Indian spiritual master who is regarded by his devotees as a saint and an incarnation of Lord Shiva. He is revered by both his Hindu and Muslim devotees during, as well as after his lifetime. Saibaba is now revered as incarnation of Sri Dattatreya, and considered as Saguna Brahma. He is attributed to be the creator, sustainer and destroyer of this universe by his devotees. He is decorated with jewels and all forms of Hindu vedic deities as he is supreme God.

According to accounts from his life, he preached the importance of realization of the self, and criticized love towards perishable things. His teachings concentrate on a moral code of love, forgiveness, helping others, charity, contentment, inner peace, and devotion to the God and guru. He stressed the importance of surrender to the true Satguru, who, having trod the path to divine consciousness, will lead the disciple through the jungle of spiritual training.  Sai Baba also condemned distinction based on religion or caste.
