Shri B. V. Sudhakar,
Department of Posts,
Dak Bhavan, Sansad Marg,
New Delhi 110 001.
Sub : Disbursement of salary to all employees working in our Department including GDS and payment of Pension by 25th of this month on account of Deepavali / Diwali Festival on 29th of this month-reg.
As everyone knows that Diwali (Deepavali) is an important festival spread over the country and celebrated by large. The festival falls on 29th of this month. Hence, we request our Secretary (Posts) to take suitable action at appropriate level, so as to get the orders for payment of salary, wages for all the employees working in our department including GDS and for payment of pension by 25th of this month.
There is precedence for this, like the order issued by the Govt. to disburse salary, wages, pension well in advance viz. by 13th September of this year, on account of Onam Festival celebrated in Kerala State. This was happened even during year 2015 also.
