The government today said it is considering a proposal to amend the Indian Post Office Act, making postal authorities responsible for non-delivery or loss in transit of articles for consumers.
"The proposal to amend the Indian Post Office Act, 1898, is under consideration which includes the examination of the scope of making postal authorities responsible for non-delivery or loss in transit of the articles of consumers," Minister of Communications and IT Ravi Shankar Prasad said in a written reply to Lok Sabha.
On a query if Indian Post is losing its share to the operations of private courier companies, the Minister said the share of both the traffic and revenue of Speed Post have been increasing over the years.
"Study on Speed Post conducted through the Indian Market Research Bureau International, reveals that the share of Department of Posts in the overall courier market has increased from the range of 15.1 per cent to 18.3 per cent in the year 2010-2011, 16.7 per cent to 19.8 per cent in year 2011-12 and 17.4 per cent to 20.2 per cent in year 2012-13," he added.

NFPE & FNPO and all its affiliated Unions/Associations including AIPEU-GDS (NFPE) has declared nationwide joint agitational programmes, in which “INCLUSION OF GRAMINDAK SEVAKS IN THE TERMS OF REFERENCE OF 7TH CPC” is the number one demand. As such, AIPEU-GDS (NFPE) has decided not to go ahead with the separate agitational programmes already declared by it, for the larger unity of all postal employees which is essential for the settlement of GDS demands. Hence AIPEU-GDS (NFPE)’s separate agitational programme is merged with the joint agitational programme of Postal Joint Council of Action.
After publication of HSG II New Recruitment Rules (few months back) and HSG-I New Recruitment Rules (two days back) many officials are under the impression that the length of qualifying service in LSG & HSG-II for next promotion is changed for all officials as per the new Recruitment Rules. It is not so. In the HSG-II and HSG-I Recruitment Rules there is a clause which states that as far as the existing LSG & HSG II officials (as on date of publication of the new RRs) the length of service as per the old Recruitment Rules is enough for promotion of HSG II and HSG-I. The new length of service condition is applicable only to those officials who get promotion to LSG & HSG II after the notification of the new RRs. All Circle / Divisional Secretaries are requested to bring the above important clause to the notice of all concerned, so that eligible employees will not be denied promotion.
2. Earlier IP Line officials are posted against HSG-I Postmasters post on promotion as ASP. As per the new HSG-I Recruitment Rules all the HSG-I posts are earmarked for promotion to General line HSG-II officials and there is no IP line posts in the HSG-I now. Circle Secretaries are requested to take up the case with chief PMGs to fill up all HSG-I posts (including IP line posts) by granting promotion to General line HSG-II officials with three years HSG-II service
