Prime Minister to reach out to govt employees' on Independence Day: Creation of the database of phone numbers and email addresses of all employees

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has asked for an exhaustive Central database of all Central and state government employees. The creation of the database, which will have the phone numbers and email addresses of all employees, is already underway, and will be first used on Independence Day when Modi's speech is directly sent to the employees by mail and messages.

The prime minister would like his maiden speech from the Red Fort to be directly communicated to one crore government employees, such as school teachers, village sarpanches, healthcare workers etc, in the farthest corners of the country. Most of these are not tech-savvy, Internet users and so frenetic efforts are under way to implement Modi's intent, said government sources.

The government has therefore initiated the process of creating the first-ever countrywide database of central and state government employees and stakeholders. Cabinet secretary Ajit Seth is monitoring the creation of this database after clear instructions by PM Modi. Seth has been meeting officials from all ministries two times every week to monitor the progress.

The National Informatics Centre has created a new portal sampark.nic.in for the purpose. All states, through their districts and block level offices, have been directed to update their data on this website. "The ministries are also coordinating with their state counterparts to compile this data in a time bound manner," said an official.

Message of Secretary (Posts) for the staff and officers of the Department over the IT Project.

Dear colleagues,

It gives me immense pleasure to update you about the ambitious IT Modernization project of the Department of Posts. As you know, with this project we have embarked upon a transformational journey. I take this opportunity to congratulate and thank each one of you for your dedication and hard work to bring about this historic transformation.

At this point in time, we have already networked close to 23,000 locations, making our the largest WAN in the country. Implementation of our Core Banking System and PLI solutions have attained a critical mass, which will enable us to undertake performance testing & certification before further roll outs. Core SI solutions relating to Mail Operations, Human Resources and F&A are in the UAT stage; and we are nearing identification of a vendor for the Rural Hardware program to support the modernization of our rural post offices.

Implementation of the CBS and Core-PLI solutions has been gradual by design so that we can pinpoint errors/ defects in the solutions and address them appropriately, before graduating to an exponential roll-out phase. As expected, officers and staff are facing some challenges during the initial implementation phase. While we continue to strengthen the solutions based on these valuable experiences, the extra mile that you all have traversed in order to manage these challenges is commendable.

Next Additional Dearness Allowance Hike Almost Confirmed at 7%

The Labour Bureau released the AICPIN points for the month of May yesterday. The AICPIN points, which had remained stagnant at 242 has increased by 2 points to touch 244 now. This has led to an increase of the Dearness Allowance for the month of May from 105.02 to 106.17.

With only one month left for the calculation of the second installment of additional Dearness Allowance of the year, one can be almost sure that it would bring a hike of 7%.

The two previous rounds of Dearness Allowance revision brought hikes of 10% each. One could sense an air of disappointment and lack of enthusiasm among the employees this time.
