Kerala gets its first 'ALL-WOMEN PostOffice'

Kerala gets its first 'ALL-WOMEN Post Office'

At PMG Junction in the capital city of Kerala Thiruvananthapuram, the state’s first all-women post office has opened its doors to the public. All four employees of PMG Junction Post Office (695 033), very near to Chief Postmaster General Office, the post master to the helper, are all women. The post office will be officially inaugurated on 05.07.2013 (Friday), it has already caught the public eye, with its staff.

Post master S. Shanthi, postal clerk R. Manju, stamp vendor C. Chandrika, and helper Latha Kumari — gaining star status among the customers. Congratulatory messages and sweet packets are pouring into the post office, and so are best wishes notes, the staff members say.

“Becoming an ‘All-Women Post Office’ was coincidental. The office had two male employees earlier who were replaced by women in the recent transfers. Then all the four staff became women and a decision was taken to proclaim it as the first ‘All-Women Post Office’ in Kerala Circle. From now onwards, it will be kept as an office exclusively for women, we hope,” said Shanthi.

The working hours are from 9.30 am to 5.30 am. The office offers traditional and modern services such as registered and Speed Post articles, post office savings bank service, monthly income scheme, e-money order and e-payment of telephone bills. It is, however, a non-delivery post office. It doesn’t distribute letters or parcels and so there is no postman or postwoman in the office.

This is the ninth All-Women Post Office in the country. The first such office in the country was inaugurated at Shastri Bhavan under Delhi Circle on the eve of International Women’s Day on March 8. Replicating this effort, women post offices were started under the Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, Punjab and Odisha circles. The Postal Department is looking forward to start All-Women Post Offices in all the circles across the nation.

The feminising of post offices is being done by the Department as part of its efforts to integrate gender equality and women’s empowerment. The attempt ensures that women employees working at various levels in the Department facilitate the decision-making of the Department as well as have a role in the management of post offices in the circles.

KNOW INDIAN POSTAL ORDER [IPO]

KNOW INDIAN POSTAL ORDER [IPO]

Of late RTI applicants are using Indian postal order [IPO] for paying filing fee and other charges. I append below few rules which will be useful to RTI users:

1. IPOs are available in denominations of Re. 0.50, 1, Rs. 2, 5, 7, 10, 20, 50 and 100/-.

2. Commission per IPO is Re1 to Rs.3 depending upon denomination. For Rs.10 IPO commission is Re.1/-.

3. Value of IPO can be increased by maximum Rs.3/- by affixing unused postal stamps not exceeding 4 on its face. Each stamp should not exceed Re1. Hence, say if you want to pay Rs.12 [and post office does not have denominations below Rs.10, you can buy IPO of Rs.10 and affix two postal stamps of Re.1 [ or 4 stamps of 50 paisa] each on its face. This way IPO will be for Rs.12. This facility of value addition is not applicable to IPO of Rs.100/-.

4. IPO is valid for 24 months from the last date of the month in which IPO is purchased from post office.

5. IPO older than 24 months as above can be revalidated for next 12 months by paying prescribed commission for that denomination of IPO in the form of postal stamps to be affixed on the reverse of IPO.

6. IPO older than 36 months from last day of the month of issue will be forfeited if presented for payment.

7. Purchaser can get refund of IPO within 6 months from last day of month of issue by surrendering original IPO and counterfoil. Purchaser can also get refund after expiry of 6 months from last day of month of issue but before 12 months from last day of month of issue of IPO provided he pays commission for renewal at prescribed rate by affixing stamps on the reverse of IPO to be refunded.

8. In case of loss of IPO, refund can be claimed by submitting counterfoil to Superintendent of Post Offices under whose jurisdiction issuing post office operates. However, refund of lost IPO will not be made before expiry of 36 months from last day of the month of issue of IPO. Claim for lost IPO should be made within 24 months from last day of month of issue. If counterfoil is not available, then number, date and post office of issue should be mentioned in the application for refund.
