Blue Dart, India Post ink pact to provide parcel locker service at post offices.

New Delhi, Nov 20 (PTI) Express logistics provider Blue Dart on Monday said it has set up digital parcel locker service at post offices under a partnership with India Post.

This service allows consignees to retrieve their shipments from digital parcel lockers at post offices, doing away with the need for personal receipts or signing for a package, Blue Dart said in a statement.

'Blue Dart and India Post forge strategic partnership for enhanced services. Under the collaboration, Blue Dart has introduced automated digital parcel lockers at selected post offices, offering customers an additional delivery method,' the statement said.

These parcel lockers keep their contents secure and are easily accessible. When the recipient needs to retrieve a package from the locker, they can simply enter the assigned code and open the locker, the company said.

Additionally, the deliveries can be collected at any time, and only authorised personnel can access the packages.

Blue Dart Managing Director Balfour Manuel said this transformative partnership underscores unwavering commitment to exceptional customer service, providing customers the option to collect packages at their convenience.

This initiative demonstrates the company's commitment to revolutionise hyper-connected city logistics, enhancing last-mile delivery efficiency while ensuring a reliable and secure experience for our customers in an increasingly digital and on-demand world.

Blue Dart Express Ltd is South Asia's premier express air and integrated transportation and distribution company, offering delivery of consignments to over 56,000 locations in India. PTI ABI ABI BAL BAL

Subject: Category of Cheques to be used for Government payments-reg.

Attention is invited to the provisions contained in Para 3.2 of Subsidiary Instructions to Central Government Account (Receipts and Payments) Rules, 2022 relating to categories of cheques to be used for Government payments. Further, para 2.2(2) c of the Subsidiary Instructions to RPR, 2022 provides that Payments to the suppliers or vendors etc. exceeding Rs. 5000/- shall be through Payment advice only. In this connection, it is stated that the category of Cheques used by Ministries/Departments for making payments during 01-04-2023 to 31-10-2023 has been examined by this Office and some of the discrepancies noted are given below: –

(i) PAO/CDDOs of some Ministries/Departments are still resorting to issuance of ‘A’ category cheques for payments above Rs.5000 to suppliers etc. which is in contravention of the provisions contained in Para 2.2(2)c as stated above.

(ii) Some Offices used Category A Cheque for making payment in favour of Government Offices like “PAO, MEA”, “Sr. Post Master”, “AG (A&E) of State Governments”, “PAO, Cabinet Affairs” etc. instead of using Category C cheque for this purpose.

(iii) Some offices used Category B Cheque for making payment in favour of ” Commissioner of Professional Tax”, “Manager, SBI”, “GST” etc. whereas Category B cheque is meant for payment to the payee who is a Government Officer designated as DDO.

(iv) PAO of a few Ministries/Departments issued ‘C’ category cheques in favour of “YOURSELF” or “to self”,  MTNL ”LIC’, etc. whereas ‘C’- category cheque is a non-negotiable instrument and is to be creditable to Government account only.

2. A consolidated monthly e-payment progress report and use of cheques by Ministries/Departments are being furnished by this Office to Department of Expenditure for its inclusion of monthly DO to Cabinet Secretary.

3. In view of the above, Head of Accounting Organisation of Ministries/Departments are, therefore, requested to issue instructions to PAOs/CDDOs under their control for strict compliance of the provisions contained in Subsidiary Instructions to CGA(R&P) Rules, 2022 relating to instructions for making payment from Government Account.

This issues with the approval of Competent Authority.
