Kindly refer to the Directorate letter of even number dated 25.01.2011 on the above subject wherein Circles were requested to identify the Post Offices for rationalization and consolidation of urban network taking into consideration of the following aspects.
(a) Condition of the Building.
(b) Profitability of Post Office
(c) Business of Post Office
(d) Justification on the basis of distance norms.
2. In their charter of demands, the Postal Joint Council of Action has requested that "whenever there is a closure of a Post Office; there should be a simultaneous relocation of Post Office in the new emerging areas". The same was agreed to by the Secretary (Posts), during the meeting held with them.
3. In view of the above, the Circles are requested to ensure that wherever simultaneous relocation is not possible; such Post Office may be temporarily merged with another Post Office.
4. This issues with the approval of Secretary (Posts)
