Divisional level Workshop on CBS Finacle and PLI McCamish conducted by Bhubaneswar Division on 13.03.2016
Observing the ongoing problems arising out of CBS Finacle and PLI McCamish and the increasing gap in between the administration and the operative staff to solve such problems, we had requested the SSPOs, Bhubaneswar Division during last Union Meeting for conducting a workshop so that each PA, SPM and Postmaster working on Finacle and McCamish can participate in an interactive programme and the administration will be able to realize the real problems faced by the grass root level officials which may enable to prepare an action plan for early solution of the problems possible at least within the financial and administrative power of the Divisional administration. Giving due honour to our request the SSPOs, Bhubaneswar Division organized a Divisional level Workshop on 13.03.2016 in PR C. O / o the Chief PMG, Odisha Circle which was participated by as many as 150 P As, SPMs and Postmasters of the Division including the DDM(PLI), Circle Office, SSPOs and ASPOs(OD), Divisional Office, Sr. Postmaster, Dy. Postmaster, PLI CPC Supervisor, Bhubaneswar GPO and CBS CPC team of Odisha Circle and staff members of DMCC, Odisha Circle.
The workshop continued from 10 AM to 5 PM with registration of genuine difficulties of the P As/SPMs/Postmasters. The officials were given chance to reflect their specific issues which were duly recorded by the Divisional administration for taking further action. The staff members raised the problems arising out of inadequate training, hardware and technical support.
The queries of the participating staff members were replied by the ASPOs(OD).
Some instant solutions were provided by the CBS CPC team, Odisha Circle followed by nice suggestions to handle some issues then and there at the time of performing transactions. Similarly the Sr. Postmaster and PLI CPC Supervisor, Bhubaneswar GPO described the errors committed by the S O units while undertaking indexing, collecting premium etc.
Participating in the discussion, Sri P K Pattnaik, SPM, Bapujinagar and President, AIPEU, Group-C, Bhubaneswar Division opined that when it is a collective responsibility for smooth operation of Finacle and McCamish, the exploitations to the P As are not appreciable. The responsibilities are also to be shared equally by both the operative and administrative staff.
On behalf of the entirety of the staff members of Bhubaneswar Division, Sri B Samal, Postmaster, Ashoknagar MDG and Divisional Secretary, AIPEU, Group-C, Bhubaneswar Division raised the common issues which are being confronted by the staff members in general. All the issues raised by each individual staff member in the workshop have either been communicated through several correspondences or discussed in the monthly union meetings. Sri Samal requested the SSPOs to sum up all the issues and try to solve phase-wise whatever possible within his competency and forward the rest to Circle Office / CPC/DMCC or to any other appropriate level requesting early solution so that the employees can be able to maintain the iconic status of India Post being responsive and reliable and demonstrating high order of professionalism and transparency with smooth implementation of I T Modernization Project, 2012. In addition, Sri Samal stressed upon proper deployment of staff in all key positions so that there will be no problem in future either for creation of user Id/Password or in reliving arrangement. It was agreed upon to identify some important Post Offices especially in rural areas as Crisis Management Centre to regulate the work of a group of post offices nearby.
In his concluding speech, the SSPOs assured the staff members to provide all possible assistances from administrative side and expected the same from all staff members to make Bhubaneswar the No.1 Division.
The arrangements made by the staff members of Divisional Office were nice including lunch / snacks. On behalf of the all the staff members, we convey our sincere thanks to the organizers.
