No more long queues in this modern Post Office

Think Post Office and you more often than not think haphazard counters with long queues. Any work to be done at this offices have been linked to being tedious and cumbersome. However, this is now in for a huge change. Nisha Nambiar, in this article of the Indian Express, writes about a model Post Office being introduced in Baramati. This PO will boast installation of latest technology in addition to automated kiosks and electronic token systems.


Union communications minister Jyotiraditya Scindia had launched the project to upgrade and modernize 500 post offices in 10 selected postal circles in two phases. In the first phase, 50 post offices were identified for their physical appearance and for their work environment.

Jarodia, who will inaugurate the post office, said, “In the state circle five post offices have been identified for the first phase. Besides Baramati in Pune region, the others are Nanded, Bhandara, Calangute and Jawahar.”

The article also lists the following salient features of this modern Post Office:
* Citizens will receive mail earlier, with delivery from 10 am instead of 11.30 am
* Letters to be dispatched the same day even after 4.30 pm
* Postmaster can be contacted by email at
* No queue, electronic token display
* Fully computerised
* Separate counter for senior citizens
* Generator backup, no load shedding
* Post forum of residents

Considering the fact that a lot of information still travels via snail mail in our country, it is a welcome initiative to revamp and improve our Post Offices. This model PO will hopefully pave the way for all other post offices of the country to follow suit.
