It has tightened the norms to the extent of 1 point for cash handling of Rs.20000/- and its application. No norms for RPLI, NREGS has been fixed so far even as per the GDS committee report. Now the recent attack has come in the form of closure of all existing EDSOs before 28.02.2010 by an order dated 14.01.2010. The reason for such move is that there is no much distinction between the functioning of EDSOs & Pos and the decision is based on the Nataraja Murti's accommodations.
