Some Direct Theorems for the linear combinations of a new class of positive linear operators have been obtained for both, pointwise and uniform simultaneous approximations. a number of well known positive linear operators such as Gamma Operators of Muller, Post-Widder and Modified Post-Widder Operators are special cases of this class of operators.
