Subject: Regarding allotment of GPF Account Numbers to Casual Labourers
with temporary status. 
Sir,
Reference is invited to Directorate’s letter No. 01-07/2016-SPB-I of
even No. dated 12.09.2016 vide which clarifications in respect of
Casual Labourers with temporary status were issued. The Directorate has
received references from Postal Circles seeking clarification as to
whether GPF account numbers should be allotted to Temporary Status
Casual Labourers covered under the Scheme formulated vide Directorate’s
letter No. 45-95/87-SPB-I dated 12.04.1991. 
2. In this regard, it is clarified that Directorate’s letter No.
01-07/2016-SPB-I dated 22.07.2016 restores the provisions of the scheme
as it existed prior to this Department’s letter no. 45-6/2005-SPB-I
dated 02.09.2005. Since, the benefit of GPF was available to temporary
status Casual Labourers prior to 02.09.2005, GPF account numbers may be
allotted to such Casual Labourers for the purpose of contribution in
GPF including those Temporary Status Casual Labourers who have not been
regularized as yet. In this context, provisions of above said letter,
dated 12.09.2016 may also be taken into consideration.
