In a review meeting held today, Minister of Communications & Development of North Eastern Region, Shri Jyotiraditya M Scindia, discussed the 100-day action plan of Department of Posts. Under his dynamic leadership and guidance, the Department of Posts aims at transforming service delivery and enhancing efficiency through key initiatives to benefit the nation and its citizens.

Dak Chaupal: Bringing services to rural doorsteps

In a landmark initiative, the Department of Posts will be organizing 5,000 Dak Chaupals across the country in the 100 days. This initiative aims to bring essential government and citizen-centric services directly to rural areas, improving accessibility and convenience. Dak Chaupals will serve as vital links between rural residents and government functions, reducing barriers such as distance and accessibility.

Dak Ghar Niryat Kendra (DNK): Boosting rural exports

Dak Ghar Niryat Kendra Scheme is set to bolster rural exports by supporting small-scale exporters. This initiative provides essential services including documentation assistance, market information, bar-coded label printing, and paperless customs clearance. Aligned with the 'One District—One Product’ initiative, this scheme will promote local products, contributing to economic growth and rural development. The Department aims to onboard 3000 new exporters onto the Dak Ghar Niryat Kendra Portal in 100 days.

Standardized Geo-Coded Addressing System: Revolutionizing service delivery

The Department of Posts is advancing an initiative to establish a standardized, geo-coded addressing system in India, ensuring simplified addressing solutions for citizen-centric delivery of public and private services. This grid-based system will serve as a robust pillar of Geospatial Governance, leading to enhancements in public service delivery, faster emergency response, and a significant boost to logistics efficiency.

As part of the 100-day action plan, the Department has initiated Proof of Concept (PoC) trials across India, covering 10 villages and a city. An MoU has been signed on July 5, 2024, with the National Institute of Urban Affairs (an autonomous body under the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, Government of India) to establish a knowledge support partnership. Another MoU is in progress with the National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC) of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) to establish a technical support partnership.

These partnerships aim to leverage advanced technologies and expertise to provide precise mapping and addressing solutions, ultimately revolutionizing service delivery across the country.

Empowering citizens through strategic initiatives

Through initiatives like Dak Chaupals, the DNK Scheme, and the standardized geo-coded addressing system, the Department of Posts aims to significantly improve the quality of life for citizens while fostering inclusive growth and development across the country. These efforts underscore the Department's proactive approach and dedication to meeting the evolving needs of a diverse and rapidly advancing society.

Under the guidance of Shri Jyotiraditya M Scindia, the Department of Posts is set to achieve remarkable milestones in the first 100 days. By enhancing accessibility and efficiency, the Department of Posts is poised to catalyze socio-economic progress and improve the quality of life for millions across the country.

In the past decades, communication was mostly dependent on the postal services as most people used to write letters to each other. Postal workers have played an important role in society for several decades, and National Postal Worker Day is observed every year on July 1 to celebrate their service. The day is also dedicated to honouring and acknowledging the hardships of people working in the postal service department. Even in the harshest working conditions, these unsung heroes walk or travel miles a day to ensure that the letters and packages reach their intended destinations on time, connecting people and communities in the process.

Let’s delve into the significance and history of the day that highlights the importance of National Postal Worker Day:

National Postal Worker Day 2024: Date

National Postal Worker Day is celebrated annually on July 1. This day is observed to acknowledge the efforts of everyone, from the clerks to the drivers who carry the letters to faraway places to the delivery partners, in the postal service.

National Postal Worker Day 2024: History

National Postal Worker Day traces its roots back to 1997 when a Seattle-area postal carrier began to honour fellow employees. Since then, July 1 has been designated to annually celebrate and show appreciation for postal workers who work in postal services. In the United States, almost 490,000 postal workers walk an average of 4–8 miles to deliver letters and packages. No matter how the weather or condition is, they work tirelessly and deliver mail.

National Postal Worker Day 2024: Significance

Regardless of the areas of service, cities, or towns, postal workers tirelessly and diligently work for seamless communication and trusted delivery.

From picking up the mail and packages to delivering them to the right addresses on time, postal workers keep an eye on all the details and brave gruelling schedules, various weather conditions, and challenging circumstances to deliver mail and packages to homes and businesses.

Hon’ble Minister Shri Jyotiraditya M. Scindia, has initiated a comprehensive survey.

Questionnaire for a survey on Estimation of role of DOP (Post Office) IT 1.0 Project on Postal services operations. 

Survey on IT 1.0 Project: Assessing Impact on India's Postal Services

In a significant move towards evaluating the impact of Project IT 1.0 on postal operations, India's Ministry of Communications, under the guidance of Hon’ble Minister Shri Jyotiraditya M. Scindia, has initiated a comprehensive survey. The project's effectiveness spans across key postal services, including India Post Bank and Postal Life  Insurance (PLI).

Objective and Scope

The primary objective of the survey is to gauge the effectiveness of IT 1.0 across various operational parameters within India Post. It aims to gather feedback from personnel at different levels, including system managers, divisional heads, postmen, and Gramin Dak Sevaks (GDS). The scope extends to assessing improvements in mail operations (excluding ordinary mail), PLI services, and the integration of IT solutions in banking operations.

Implementation Strategy

To ensure comprehensive feedback, the Ministry has distributed specific questionnaires tailored for each service segment:

  1. Mail Operations: Feedback is solicited from system managers, divisional heads, postmen, IPs, ASPs, and GDS. This encompasses feedback on the efficiency and impact of IT 1.0 on mail delivery and related services.

  2. Postal Life  Insurance (PLI): The questionnaire targets divisional officers and field staff, including sub-divisional heads and GDS in rural areas. It focuses on improvements in PLI services due to IT interventions.

  3. India Post Bank (Core Banking Solutions): Feedback from system administrators, divisional heads, IPs, ASPs, postmen, and GDS members is sought to assess the integration of IT 1.0 in banking operations, specifically through Core Banking Solutions (Finacle).

Data Collection and Submission

The Ministry has mandated that each circle gathers responses from a minimum of 100 respondents across the specified roles. Responses are to be submitted both electronically and in hard copy format to the Office of DDG(STT) by June 25, 2024. Online submissions can be made via dedicated Google Forms created for each questionnaire type:

  • PLI & RPLI Feedback: 
  • Mail Operations Feedback: 
  • Core Banking Solutions Feedback: 

This dual approach ensures accessibility and ease of data submission, reflecting the Ministry's commitment to thorough assessment and transparency.

Conclusion

The survey represents a proactive step towards leveraging technology to enhance postal services' efficiency and customer satisfaction. By gathering feedback directly from operational staff, the Ministry aims to refine and optimize IT 1.0 initiatives, further reinforcing India Post's role in the digital age.

For further details and queries, concerned officials are encouraged to contact the Office of DDG(STT) or access the designated Google Forms.

50% Pension of Basic Salary!

New Delhi, June 11: The NDA government at the center is going to announce a huge offer for employees. As part of the National Pension Scheme (NPS), it has been proposed that 50% of the final basic pay of the employees will be given as pension. Against the backdrop of objections to NPS and many states reverting to the old pension system, Finance Department Secretary TV Somanathan said, "In 2023, the Central Government has set up a committee. This committee studied the policies to be followed to make NPS more beneficial. In this background, the newly formed NDA government has proposed to give 50% of the last basic salary as pension to the employees. Somanathan Committee also recommended changes in NPS. It is reported that the Center has taken a fresh decision in this context. However.. Kavi T did not set any specific deadline for implementing his recommendations.
