The Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) has fixed the next date for hearing as 12-09-2018 in the case filed by NFPE and AIPEU-GDS for grant of ‘Civil Servant Status’ to GDS. The postponement was due to paucity of time.

Federation and AIPEU-GDS have been long demanding for grant of Civil Servant Status to the GDS, who are working for years together in the Postal department.The central government was compelled to accept the recommendations of the GDS Committee, only after a glorious strike for 16 days by the entire GDS workers and solidarity strike by the Postal employees.
