No. NFPE – ODI / Corr / 2017
Dated at Bhubaneswar the 27th October, 2017

Odisha Circle, Bhubaneswar – 751 001
Sub:- Regarding Engagement of Outsourced Postal Agents
It has come to the notice of this Federation that SSPOs, Bhubaneswar Division has issued a public notice in some popular local daily newspapers to engage Outsourced Postal Agents for booking and delivery of Registered, Speed Post and Parcels and a walk-in-interview has been scheduled on 30.10.2017 in Divisional Office, Bhubaneswar.
Our delivery staff are now engaged in picking up the Registered, Speed Post and Parcels including ordinary articles from the door points of the customer and the statistics is gradually increasing day by day. We are also experiencing your personal efforts to make aware the delivery staff during your visit to different offices and also in several workshops and meetings. In this context, engagement of OPAs seems to be contradictory. Delivery of accountable articles will certainly affect the workload of the delivery staff who will be only left with delivery of ordinary articles and thus there will be a negative impact on the staff strength also.
As per information available with us, such engagement in other Circles like Maharastra etc is not yet implemented.
Thus, for the welfare of the staff members, we would like to request you to kindly allow us for a constructive discussion in this regard as per your convenience. And till then, SSPOs, Bhubaneswar may kindly be instructed to stop engagement of OPAs.
Expecting your kind response, Sir.
