  • dheerendra Kumar

    the pay must increases becoz they work more than their fixed time. and their TRCA is very less by which their courage decreases for working honestly. The major problem of GDS is their low pay. by which they often remain unsatisfied.

  • Tarun


    Dear Kamlesh chandraji and P.M. and other concerned,
    I agree with Mr. Ramesh about extending our hands for developing villages in India. As a GDS MD we are working as equal as a regular postman. But we are not getting what we deserve and not able to give good life to our families. We work almost full day and there is no possibility of doing other works for additional earning. Please do study the situations well and add some other works which will help in developing the villages apart from this, which comes under central government.
    Pls do justice to GDS employees.
    Thanking you sir.
