No. R-III/25/PNOP/2018 Dated 06-08-2018
Department of Posts,
New Delhi-110 001.
Subject:- Postponing the implementation date of PNOP.
Kindly refer to the meeting held on 28-05-2018 on PNOP and calling suggestions on PNOP. Staff Side R-III CHQ has submitted the suggestions vide its letter of even number dated 27-06-2018 (Copy enclosed). Now it is learnt that Department has issued orders to implement the PNOP w.e.f. 17-08-2018. In this regard we submit the following for consideration:_
1. It is very sorry to inform that not a single suggestion given by the Staff Side has been accepted by the Department and also the Administration has also not clarified all the points/anxiety raised by the Staff Side.
2. No discussion was held at Circle /Regional level for selection of L-1, L-2 hubs and mail arrangements. Due to unscietific selection of hubs without considering geographical situations, large scale back routing and accummulation in L-1 hubs will be resulted.
3. Sufficient space and other infrastructure facilities has not been provided in earmarked parcel hubs.
4. The problem due to the CSI role out is not settled, in addition to that implementation PNOP without providing the minimum requirements will create more difficulties to the staff and lead to public criticism.
Therefore due to above reasons we would request you to kindly postpone the implementation of PNOP from 17-08-2018.
