Aadhar Enabled Payments in Andhra Pradesh & Telangana during 2015-2016 : Practical Study.


Source : GDS Report'2016.

How a GDSBPM who is having  5th Scale , performs his additional duty by doing average of 21.36 transactions per day with Bio- metric devices.

Bio-metric devices were accessible with mobile network and Aadhar authentication.

If mobile network is good  and Aadhaar server is busy , how much time it will take to do one transaction ?

If Aadhaar server is freely accessible but mobile network is poor , how much time it will take to do one transaction ?

Is it mandatory to work beyond 5 hours even the scheme is not covered under workload ?

Rule not permitted the GDS to work beyond 5 hours if it is not  covered under the workload of GDS.

In the Rule 3A(i) of GDS Conduct & Engagement Rules ,2011 it is clearly mention the working hours

not mention the working hours only based on Directorate workload norms.

This time , it is mandatory to Directorate to decide the matter whether we have to perform our duties onlywith in 5 hours including IPPB & RICT or not ?

GDS Current Status & Applicability of Articles 309 & 311 of Constitution of India.

Date : 17.11.2017

GDS Current Status & Applicability of Articles  309 & 311 of Constitution of India.




Article 309 & 311 both are related to Central Government employees.


In the above said para 8.17, Article 309 not covered to GDS.


In the above said para 8.18 , Article 311 applicable to GDS.


GDS Conduct & Engagement Rules ,2011 were not framed under Article 309 of the Constitution of India but under *executive powers of Central Government* after approval of the recommendations of the Nataraja Murthy Committee report.Thus these rules are also non statutory in nature.


According to Dept.of Posts and Government of India , One Article supports GDS (311) i.e.Statutory 


Second Article (309) not supported to GDS i.e non statutory ( which was framed by the Dept.only).


Why Department of Posts adopt that Rule in 2011?

Why they are not interested to amend or withdrawn the executive resolution ?

Is there any mercy on GDS by Directorate?

Past is past. At present RICT & IPPB roll out started.


At this juncture, Directorate must mandatatorily convince the Govt.of India and do favour to 2,70,000 GDS and their families.

If Department & Govt.of India withdrawn their executive resolution reg.GDS Conduct & Engagement Rules ,2011 on GDS employees , then 


All the GDS will automatically convert in to Central Government Employees with the applicability of Article 309 of Constitution of India.

Now, government to start mapping your address digitally

Date : 16.11.2017

Now, government to start mapping your address digitally. The government wants to map your address — residential or professional — digitally, something done by Aadhaar for an individual's identification.



The department of posts - which is under the ministry of communications — has ordered a pilot project that will accord a six-character alphanumeric digital address for every property for three postal pin code locations.

The idea is to provide e-locations (like on Google Maps) for the addresses therein and then provide possibilities to link them to other information, such as property title and ownership, property tax records, information on utilities like electricity, water and gas.The eLoc (e-location) pilot project has been approved for two postal pin codes in Delhi and one in Noida, following which the plan is to identify national expansion plans. The digital identity — say, UV77D7 — will be an e-enabled address that can be used parallelly to the existing postal address.Private mapping company MapmyIndia will be carrying out the project for the postal department. 

"The results of the proof of concept may be utilised by the department towards developing a digital address format that would suit the purpose for a national-level project rollout," says a letter signed by additional director-general (mail operations) Abhishek Kumar Singh and sent to MapmyIndia on September 27.

MapmyIndia MD Rakesh Verma said the e-linkage would make it easier to identify complex addresses while providing an opportunity to link them to other amenities and services.

"eLoc will help travellers and commuters search, share and navigate to a destination's exact doorstep far more easily and quickly. It will also reduce time, money, fuel wastage and expenses for businesses in the e-commerce, transportation, logistics and field operations domains," said Verma.

Pilot project to evaluate digital addresses' effectiveness: DoP
Currently, a large number of addresses in the country are difficult to comprehend when read digitally. "For example, an address such as 147, Pocket XX, 2A, Janakpuri can be easily identified online by a digital address such as 8GDTYX. This can be further linked with other associated amenities such as property tax and ownership details, civic amenities etc," an official of the company said.

The approval letter (for the pilot) by the Department of Posts (DoP) said the objective of the project is to demonstrate the effectiveness of a digital addressing system.

"The sole ownership of the data/reports or any other documents generated/created in any electronic or physical form, during the course of the proof of concept, shall remain with the department," it said, prohibiting the private company from using the information for any commercial purpose.

The postal department would assist in the exercise through sharing of data on beat maps, verification of the information related to mapping of physical address with the digital addresses and facilitating interactions with their ground staff.

In a statement, Mapmy-India claimed that it already possesses an exhaustive digital address database that includes over 2 crore eLocs of individuals, businesses and government set-ups.

The statement said that the company has partnered Isro and its national satellite imagery service 'Bhuvan' to provide effective mapping coordinates.
