Sub: - Opening of separate counters for IPPB in Post offices.
It has been brought to our notice that separate counters for the work of IPPB are being opened in Post offices.
Whenever any discussion took place, the Postal Administration had stated that the IPPB will function separately. To manage the work, many officials have been taken on deputation from PA Cadre working in Post offices and having experience of at least two years in SB branches.
Now almost the separate branches of IPPB have been established in all Head Post offices, encroaching the prime location, mainly the premises of S.B. Counters.
But now it is being told that the IPPB office will work as back up office and will not do any counter or operational work. The entire operational work will be got done by the Postal Staff by opening separate counters.
As you are well aware that there is acute shortage of staff particularly in PA cadre in all Post offices. The post offices up to triple hand have been converted in to single hand. More premium services like Aadhar, Pass Port and others have been introduced.
After implementation of CBS, now CSI is being implemented, which is creating more troubles to the staff.
In single handed Post offices, it is very difficult to manage all the affairs single handedly.
In CBS at least two persons are required keeping in view the theory of maker & checker.
Recently orders have been issued to establish separate Parcel hubs under PNOP scheme, in which also staff will be deployed from Post offices.
If the work of IPPB is required to be done by the Postal staff then the following suggestions are given for you consideration.
1. Fill up all vacant posts of PA Cadre.
2. Convert all single handed Post offices in to double hand.
3. Provide adequate infrastructure.
4. Revert back the Postal Staff taken on deputation.
It is therefore requested to kindly cause suitable action in this regard.
