The postal department plans to enter the banking business with the Reserve Bank of India deciding to grant new bank licences to entities with credible track-record.

Consultant appointed

Sources said the Department of Posts, which has a strong foot print in rural areas, has appointed Ernst and Young (E&Y) as the consultant for the proposed ‘Post Bank’

“Ernst and Young is expected to submit a detailed project report by April, after which all the necessary measures will be taken up to apply for banking licence,” a source at the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology told PTI.

The sources added that the Department of Post (DoP) might need Cabinet approval for setting up Post Bank of India.

Of the 1.55 lakh post offices in the country, around 24,000 district offices may be ready to offer banking services in the next two years.

The DoP is in process of setting up 1,000 ATMs.

“Post Bank shall not only take care of the banking needs of the rural poor but shall also converge with micro-insurance and micro-remittance services of the DoP,” the source said.

As per data shared with Parliament, there were over 26 crore operational small savings accounts in post offices as on March 31, 2012, having deposits worth Rs.1.9 lakh crore.

February 20, 21 Strike


Against the exploitation of the virtual capitalism,
It’s the expression of our inner tumult.
Against the commodifying everything,
It’s for changing everything.
Against the apolitical disintegration,
It’s the moulding of the common man and working class of India.
If winter comes, can spring be far behind?
Let us join the mass upsurge on Feb 20, 21 and continue the fight
to change the capitalist-oriented Imperialist globalization policies

NOTICE OF TWO DAYS STRIKE ON 20th & 21st FEBRUARY, 2013.
LETTER FROM THE DEPARTMENT
No.8-4/2013/SR
Government of India
Ministry of Communications & IT
Department of Posts

Dak Bhawan , Sansad Marg ,
New Delhi-110001
Dated 13.02.2013
To
            Sh. M. Krishnan,
            Secretary General, NFPE
            Sh. D. Theagarajan,
            Secretary General, FNPO

Subject:        Notice of two days strike on 20th & 21st February, 2013.

Sir,
            With reference to letter No. JCA 2013 dated 22nd January, 2013 from Postal Joint Council of Action stating that all the Postal/RMS/MMS/Administrative and Postal Accounts Employees and all the Gramin Dak Sevaks will go on two days strike on 20th & 21st Feb, 2013 in support of Charter of Demands enclosed with the letter referred to above. Part-I of The Charter of Demands relates to the entire Government of India and perhaps will be examined by Department of Personnel and Training. Part-II of the Charter of Demands relating to the Department of Posts is being examined by us. The progress in respect of these demands will be intimated to you shortly.

2.         As you are aware the Department of Posts has a well established system to resolve the demands of the employees through discussions across the table. In the recent past, periodical meetings granted by Secretary (Posts),JCM Standing Committee Meeting and JCM Departmental Council Meetings were held where a number of issues have  been discussed  in detail and the minutes has been issued to all concerned for solving staff matters. It is felt that no fruitful purpose is served by agitation especially when the problems can be mutually discussed and resolved. Such disruptions also hamper our business and goodwill.

3.         In view of the above, it is requested that both the federations and its affiliated Unions may call off the strike so that the Postal Services are not hampered and public is not put to any avoidable inconvenience.

Yours faithfully,
                                                      Sd/-

Dy. Director General (Establishment)
