                          Postal Coordination Committee,
                          West Bengal, Circle.   

  To
The Prime Minister of India
New Delhi

         Sir, 
                We the undersigned depositors in small savings in the Post Offices and employees of state and central Govt. establishments, Banks, Rail, BSNL, Defense, Teachers and non teaching staff of various establishment are the victim of the Govt. of India decision to reduce drastically the rate of interest in various small savings scheme and to review the same at an interval of three months. Such decision is badly hampering the interest of the depositors of small savings scheme, who are mostly of lower or middle income group. The depositors in Monthly Income Scheme and Senior Citizen accounts had to lose an annual return of Rs. 600/- & Rs. Rs. 700/- respectively for Rs. One lakh deposits. Loss in respect of Time Deposit is more. Such is the position of “Sukanya Samridhi Yojana”. Efforts are going on to reduce the rate of interest in Banks.

                 The Ministry of Finance in a letter stated that the Govt. of India was going to introduce low interest economy in our country. The Finance Minister had made the issue more clear by stating that the rate of interest in savings was reduced with a view to reduce the interest rate in borrowing in order to encourage more capital investment in the country. He also advised the people at large to invest their money in share market for better return. We cannot but emphatically state that the approach of the Finance Minister is not in the interest of the Common man of the country but in the interest of the Finance Capital. We are oppose to such steps.

                Lacks of SAS Agents are dependent on Small Savings Scheme. The livelihood of their family is earned from the small Savings Scheme. The reduction of the rate interest will badly hamper their livelihood as the investment will be diverted from Post Office.  The Govt. of India has also reduced the rate of interest in GPF to the tune of 0.60% by which the Central Govt. employees will be hard-hitted. This is also part of same policy of depriving the working people.

              This is also to invite your kind attention to the intolerable situation arising out of introduction of Core Banking Solution without proper infrastructure and adequate trained manpower and equipments causing immense sufferings of the depositors of small savings and Post Office staff as well. The speed of service is very low because of the failure of link provider SIFY. Link failure is almost every day’s affairs. The Authorities at lower level used to tell that there are two net work called Network Service Provider I & II . But, experiences show that when NSP - I cannot work NSP –II is not also available for the reasons best known to SIFY. We are also of the opinion that the FINACLE software used in CBS is not in a position to bear the entire work load of the Post Offices at large, we are also of the opinion that the Department of Posts is introducing the new system in much hurry without studying the ground reality resulting immense hardship of both depositors including old man and staff at large. The staffs are also being subjected to penal measure for the small and honest error although they are compelled to work beyond their duty hours without any extra remuneration. We are astonished to know that the proposed for installation of Central Servers in four Zonal basis to improve the Services, to provide Passbook printers in each office, to increase band width submitted by the service unions/Federation  have turned down by the highest postal Authorities for the reasons best known to them.

               Under these circumstances what have been emunarrated above we, the undersigned, strongly urges upon you to intervene into the matter so that the grievances of common people are redressed by upward change of the rates of interest rate and immediate redressal of the problems arising out of introduction of Core Banking Solution in the greater interest of staff, depositors and SAS Agents of the Country.

Yours Sincerely,
