Good response to post office on wheels in Pune

Department of posts has received significant response from residents of the city to its second 'post office on wheels' vehicle that was flagged off around two months ago. The vehicle is offering postal services at the doorsteps of people in eastern parts of the city as well as in major residential areas in Pimpri Chinchwad.

The official of department of posts said that response has been tremendous especially in the outskirts areas where the department has not been able to set up post offices. The official said that the project is being run successfully in the city since last year when first 'post office on wheels' vehicle was launched to cater to the needs of city's western parts.

The department keep changing schedules of two vehicles for every week. The schedule is announced one week prior so that people from respective areas will be able to avail of the services. The vehicle runs in two shifts---morning and evening---in a day covering major residential colonies and roads. It offers almost all postal services including sale of postal stationery like postcards.

An official said that the 'post office on wheels' projects has proved beneficial for elderly people, students and housewives who can get the postal services at doorsteps. The department plans to expand services of the vehicle in the near future.

It is not true that there is response from members of public to transact their business on Post on Wheel. Actually the business done on POW is diverted from Post Office counter by the Postal staff meant for the purpose.In fact, it causes heavy loss to the department considering Profit & Loss A/C & is only drama to highlight once image in the media & department.
