It was convened under guidance and in presence of Shri B.K. Rai ji, Vice President , BMS and PRABHARI Industrial units of BMS. Other Participants were S/Shri S.K.

Jadhav, Maharashtra Circle Secretary, BPEA Postman & MTS & P.S. Kadam, Circle Secretary, Foreign Post.
In the meeting several issues were discussed in three sessions of four hours each. In the reporting session every General secretaries have reported about the membership drive, election programme of Circles and schedules of their due All India Conference. In the Circles like Punjab , U.P. Karnataka, Kerala , Rajasthan and Jharkhand, the Circle conferences of BP-III, BP-IV and GDS were convened successfully. The M.P. & Orissa Circle has convened R-III and R-IV Circle conferences . The Haryana & Bihar Circle have convened BPAOEA Circle Conference. The All India Conference of Administrative union and GDS Union was convened successfully. It can be concluded that almost all circles have updated their conferences and now it is the turn of Circles to convene their Divisional Conference in time.
Regarding opening of New Divisions, it has been informed that two options are available. First one is to make authorized office bearer in that Division to submit the forms in the month of April or during re-verification process. The 2nd one is to form adhoc body and then convene regular election within three month of time. As regard to Divisions in which we could not form a Divisional Secretary or authorized office bearer, the General Secretary or Circle Secretary can submit the attested membership forms to the Divisional heads/ Regional Heads/ Circle Heads.
It has also been reported that the All India Conference of BP-III, BR-III & BR-IV will be completed upto December, 2013. Positively.
The Secretary General has reported all the events, the “PRAVASH” and the conferences attended by him during the period October 2012 to June, 2013. A Strike notice was also served on 29-01-2013. The department has issued advisory to postpone the programme and informed that informal meeting will be arranged in March, 2013. The Strike was postpone on this communication. In the meeting it has been decided to choose appropriate time to give the notice for Dharna do not Pradarshan or Strike in the event of Department not giving any informal meeting or look over the issues urgently. The DDG (Estt.) has informed that the meeting will be arranged shortly in the last week of the July.
I am sorry to disclose that General Secretaries have reported about membership drive in vague manner without any proof of it. This tradition has become a custom of BPEF affiliated unions to act casually over the important and strategic issues. For these reasons they took no cognizance of the decisions taken in such type high level meetings. The decisions taken at Hyderabad meeting, New Delhi Meetings have not been conveyed to lower office bearers even through circulars. For these reasons the pity financial and Organisational situation of BPEF arises. Reporting without any proof and without any real action is deplorable on the ground that lot of expenditure becomes waisted. The Bharatiya unions become element of mockery at the eyes of others who read these circulars.
The Treasurer report placed in the meeting very well depicts the story of reluctance and irresponsibility from the part of unions as they are getting membership subscription by way of salary deduction . It is sorry to state that we are not able to pay even petty Honoruium and licnece fee of about two thousand per month. Water & Elect bill of Rs. 3500/- per month and News paper telephone bill of about two thousand per month . Having no option left to the Federation it has decided to impose levy over the unions as below so that expenditure to be incurred up to October, 2013 may be met.
GDS Union – 20000/-, BP-III, 20000/- , BP-IV, 8000/-, BR-III, 4000/- BR-IV, 3000/- BPAOEA Rs. 4000/- BP Civil Wing Rs. 1000/- Administrative Union 1000/- of Rs. 60000/-This levy must be paid before Federal Council so that the Federation could not feel pity in meeting out expenses.
Matter of Election dispute in Kerala Circle BP-IV union has been reported by convenor Kerala circle Shri C.M. Pillai the same has been handed over to General Secretary, BP-IV for resolving the issue amicably. It has been advised that in all matters of election dispute, the decision of BPEF will be final.
In the last Shri B.K. Rai, Vice present Central BMS and Prabhari Industrial units have taken note of all the discussions and told that the unions are not hospitals were every ill comes and later on goes away when treatment is over. It is a family and a developed system having well defined constitution and ethics to follow exists. He advised that as per the BMS directions , The Federation , the All India Union and the Circle unions must have core group to decide the issues . For the All India Unions President , Secretary, Org. Secretary , Secretary General & Treasurer will form the core group. Similarly for Circle unions President , Secretary, Treasurer, AGS of All India Union and convener of BPEF will form the core group. At the Federation level President/ Working President, Secretary General, Treasurer, Org. Secretary, and Prabhari industrial unit of BMS will form the Core group. This core group must report to the Higher level for the activities about the Organizational and Agitational programmes. In the case of laxity from the part of All India Unions, Circle Unions are Divisional Unions the action will be taken by the core groups accordingly. It is to be taken in mind that as per the constitution of unions the General Secretary of the unions is the Administrative Head of that union. Similarly Secretary General is the administrative Head for all the matter of affiliated unions. Similarly every unions are advised to give full charge to the AGS of the union of the adjoining Circles to Circle in which he resides, in All India conference itself for the purpose of easily administering the membership / union activities and election process.
Since the Govt. is deducting the union subscription and remitting it to office bearers, therefore, the financial irregularity is not simple one but it is a financial fraud towards organisaiton which attrach disciplinary action against the faulty office bearers.
If the core group of All India unions and its CWC find it fit to amend its constitution so that the union subscription deducted at Division/ Branches may be remitted to the CHQ directly by the Administration then they are free to make such amendment in constitution. The General Secretary, BP Civil Wing Shri Balram Pandey has given has consent to do so in his constitution.
As regarding Special Donation by unions / Federation, Receipt Book must contain three least. One should be handed over to the donor. Second one should be retained by the collector and third one should be retained by the BPEF or All India Union as the case may be.
He strongly supported that if the BPEF is short of fund for carrying out its daily union activity then it must raise the Special Fund with the help of Federation office bearers / CHQ office Bearers of the union. This issue was supported by Shri R.N. Navghar and others and has advised that Receipt book of Rs. 1100/- per Head may be printed for collecting Donation to BPEF and be distributed to all active office bearers. Similarly during All India Conference of unions Rs. 1100/- per office bearers may be collected at the conference place itself.
