This is the condition of the JANLA Sub-postoffice in account with Khurda Head postoffice . This is a Project arrow office. And this is the condition of the project arrow and look and feel system of the department. This is a double hand office with other GDS staffs for packing and mail delivery. What about their lives ? The divisional administration has become completely paralysed. It is not in a mood to spend a single pie .It only bothers when DET of certain day has not been transfered to central server by any office.This office is situated on NH-5 ,very near to Bhubaneswar. When this is the condition of road side offices,then our viewers are very intelligent . Because of this condition of the office, attempt of theft have been occurred twice and each time divisional administration fixed responsibility upon the SPM as there is a provision of a quarter attached to it. But divisional office is quite inhuman to think that a SPM is bound to reside in this quarter of ruined condition. Let's see when the department wakes up from deep sleep ? Hope that day will come soon.

2 Provisional pension and provisional gratuity (up to 100%) should be sanctioned by the Head of Office if he were of the opinion that the Government servant is likely to retire before his pension or gratuity or both can be finally assessed and settled in accordance with the relevant rules.

3 In the case of a missing Government servant/pensioner, family pension can be paid after a period of six months from the date of lodging an FIR with the police authorities.

4 A judicially separated spouse of the deceased Government servant with children can get family pension after the children cease to be eligible till his/her death/remarriage, whichever is earlier.

5 Dependent parents and widowed/divorced daughter/unmarried daughter are now included in the definition of family for the purpose of consideration for grant of family pension.

6 Family pension is also admissible to a posthumous child and also to children from the void or the voidable marriage as per the relevant provisions in the rules.

7 Normal family pension is now at a uniform rate of 30% of pay last drawn, subject to a minimum of Rs. 3500 (w.e.f. 1.1.2006).

8 Family pension is admissible to children from the void or voidable marriage in their own turn, after the legally wedded wife ceases to be the recipient of the family pension.

9 In the event of death of a family pensioner, the arrears of family pension is automatically payable to the eligible member of the family next in line. Succession certificate for payment of the arrears is required only in such cases where there is no family member eligible to receive family pension after the death of the family pensioner.

10 With effect from 1.1.2006, in case of a Government Servant retiring in accordance with the provisions of CCS(Pension) Rules after completing qualifying service of not less than ten years, the amount of pension is calculated at fifty percent of emoluments or average emoluments whichever is more beneficial to him.

14 Qualifying service of 3 months and above may be rounded-off into a completed six-monthly period for the purpose of computation of both pension and DCRG. The period of nine months would thus be considered as two half years.

HYDERABAD: After failing to deliver mail, including a registered parcel, addressed to President Pranab Mukherjee, Bolarum post office staff on Tuesday redirected it to Rashtrapti Bhavan in New Delhi.

At 8 am, senior India Post officials landed at 
R P Nilayam in Bolarum to deliver the mail to the VVIP guest. However, the President's security personnel initially stopped and denied them entry into the premises. Though they showed their identity cards and even tried to convince security personnel that they had to deliver letters to the President, their efforts were proved futile.

Meanwhile, the security personnel communicated to R P Nilayam authorities about the waiting India Post staff and explained about their purpose of visit. After half-an-hour, the security personnel permitted them to enter the R P Nilayam premises.

Till 3 pm, they were forced to wait at bungalow to deliver the mail. Meanwhile, R P Nilayam in-charge N 
Mahesh Babu spoke to the President's office. They advised him to re-direct the mail to Delhi immediately.

"As the President was flying back to the national capital, the authorities asked us to re-direct the dak in a special sealed pack to RP Bhavan, Delhi. Accordingly, we sent them," sources said.

Meanwhile, the postal department has launched an investigation to find out the reasons for non-delivery of the mail to the President. India Post officials also recorded the statements of both post-master 
A Durga Rao and postman Mahesh regarding reasons for delay in delivering the mail to the first citizen of the country.
