Sub: Arbitrary enhancement of security amount to the GDS – Regarding.
Ref : Directorate Letter No. 17-18/2018 GDS Dated 14.01.2020.
Apropos reference, it is constrained to note that the security amount for the GDS has been enhanced to the extent of Rs.1,00,000/-( One lakh only) to the BPM & ABPM from the existing amount of Rs.25000/- & Rs.10000/- respectively arbitrarily and causing injustice to the GDS officials.
The increase in four folds to the BPM and ten times to the ABPMS is causing a concern. The co- operative societies are charging the premium amount heavily and as per the current rates the premium will fetch to the extent of Rs.10000/- which is unbearable by the GDS.
The maximum security amount shall not exceed the minimum TRCA of the individual GDS and the enhancement of the premium amount is causing a concern.
It is therefore requested to kindly reconsider and reduce the enhancement of the security amount to the barest minimum.
A line in reply about the action taken is highly solicited.
