No. PF-Covid-19/2020                                                           Dated: 22nd March-2020

To
            The Secretary,
            Department of Posts,
            Dak Bhawan,
            New Delhi-110001

Sub:  Closure of Post Offices to contain spread of Corona virus (Covid-19).

Sir,
We would like to convey our sincere thanks to you for issuing advisory and instructions to prevent spread of coronavirus (covid-19) in post offices.

But after noticing the seriousness of this fatal disease several state government e.g. Kerala, Rajasthan, Punjab, Odisha, Bihar and Delhi have declared total lockdown in the states.

          UP govt. has declared lockdown in 15 cities and districts and AP government declared lockdown in five districts?
  
Railway board has taken decision to stop operation of all passenger trains throughout the country from 22nd March to 31st march 2020. 50% of our business i.e. transmission of mail is related with Railway. When there will be no transmission of mail through railway, the work from RMS will be negligible.

When there will be no means of transport, then it will be very difficult to postal employees to attend duty in post offices.

The officers at lower level at most of the places are not making arrangements as per advisory issued from directorate.

In most of the post offices soaps, sanitizers, napkins and thermal scanners are not provided.

Honorable Prime Minister has also appealed to maintain  social distancing, but in post offices it is very difficult to maintain social distancing as some of the work like Aadhar updation and enrollment, opening of IPPB accounts, delivery of articles through mobile app are directly connected with public and thumbs and finger impressions are taken from the customers. The Postman have to go to their beats  to deliver postal articles.

In most of the post offices on the counters there are no glasses visible that may keep distance within counters PA and public.

Keeping in view above all facts and seriousness of this fatal disease caused by corona virus (covid-19) and in the national interest and in the interest of mankind, it is requested that the post offices throughout the country may kindly be ordered to be closed from 23rd march 2020 to 31st march 2020.

An early and positive action is highly solicited.
   
With Regards,
                                                                       Yours Sincerely
                                                                        
(RN Parashar)
    Secretary General
