Dear Comrades,

General Secretary’s Desk
Dear Comrades,
20.02.2013 & 21.02.2013 – Two Days General Strike
I fervently trust that preparation for the successful conduct of proposed two days strike of 20.02.2013 to 21.02.2013 which will be the first biggest strike of the united Indian working class with the expected participation of more than 10 crores workers against the retrograde anti labour, anti people and neo liberal economic policies of the Central Government will be in full swing. Please organize meetings; meet every member and ensure 100% participation of our membership in the ensuing strike.
The joint strike notice had been served by the Postal JCA to the Department of Posts on 22.01.2013 in which we raised the postal oriented demands like the appointment of the 7th Pay Commission, DA merger, abolitions of posts, National Postal Policy, Cadre review, GDS and Casual labourers demands etc. Please organise jointly with all postal unions in JCA and ensure full participation in the Feb 2003 strike.
29th All India Conference
I fervently trust by this time all of you and your delegates would have booked the journey tickets to attend the 29th AIC proposed to be held at Thiruvananthapuram from 10.03.2013 to 12.03.2013. I am further confident that you would have already furnished the details of your delegates/visitors, their journeys etc. to the 29th AIC Reception Committee. If not, please ensure to forward such details immediately to the reception committee by next post in order to felicitate them to book the rooms in the lodges for the accommodation for delegates and other arrangements.

Advertisement to Souvenir
The Reception Committee as well as our CHQ has requested all the branches to procure one or two advertisements each of the divisions for the 29th AIC. But to our dismay many have not responded so far. This can be provided from branches; from the P&T Societies and also from the well wishers. The Reception Committee has provided 40% commission for such advertisements also. Except Tamilnadu circle, which they are holding 1st AIC of GDS NFPE union from 21.03.2013 to 22.03.2013 and Andhra Circle which is holding the Federal Council from 09.06.2013 to 12.06.2013 at Hyderabad, all other divisional secretaries/Circle Secretaries are once again requested to kindly bestow their efforts to procure advertisements for the souvenir to be released to mark the occasion of 29th AIC. I fervently trust that you will respond to the request of the CHQ immediately.
Essay Competition
The 29th AIC has already announced essay competition on the topic of ‘Future of India Post’ and decided to award three prizes in the AIC. This is nothing, but to develop the skill and talents of our comrades in analyzing the issues in the prospective lines. The cut off date for receipt of such articles had been fixed as 28.02.2013 by the reception committee. All the interested comrades are requested to forward the articles to the reception committee and also copy to the CHQ.
Venture - 2013
We proposed to release ‘Venture 2013’ in the ensuing All India Conference. We are exerting all our sincere efforts to bring out the book most comprehensive. This time the volume of the book will also be bigger in size which may contain around 800 pages. We are arranging index to all orders also. It will be a master guide for all unionists. The rate will be decided as per the practice of ‘No gain; No loss’. All Branch Secretaries are requested to make indent immediately to CHQ to assess the correct quantum of requirement of the book.
Federal Council meeting
It is proposed to hold the NFPE Federal Council in Hyderabad (Andhra Pradesh) from 09.06.2013 to 12.06.2013. Various political leaders and trade Union leaders of the Fraternal organizations will address in the Federal Council.

The Reception Committee headed by Com. K. V. Sridharan and Com. K.
