E-commerce, core banking in focus, says PMG

The Department of Posts is focused on giving a fillip to e-commerce and core banking solutions, aggressive promotion of mobile money orders, postal life insurance and savings bank accounts, delivery of speed post letters within one day of booking and cent per cent delivery of articles by introducing dedicated mail delivery vehicles and mail routes, said Sanjiv Ranjan, Postmaster General of Kurnool region.
All the maturity and death claims under postal life insurance (PLI) and rural postal life insurance (RPLI) have been settled and there is zero pendency of claims in the Kurnool region, the enterprising Indian Postal Service Officer, who assumed charge as Kurnool PMG a fortnight ago, told The Hindu.
Realtime data upload McCamish system has been introduced to upload all ledgers and claims under PLI and RPLI on a realtime basis to the central server as all the 811 post offices across the country are networked, Mr. Ranjan said. Partial digitisation has been happening manually since 2007 and 549 post offices and 4,000 sub post offices in the country have migrated to McCamish system so far. The remaining would migrate to the system by March next year, he said.
Speed post and articles booked are routed through the Kurnool and Tirupati sorting hubs and the current 90 per cent delivery rate would be improved to 95 per cent by January 2016, the Postmaster General said. Attributing the gap in delivery to refusal of the addressees to accept legal notices and absence of working couples during delivery time, he said an alternative mail arrangement would be evolved by December 15.
Mail delivery vehicles
To speed up delivery of speed post letters and articles, affected by over-dependence on public transport system, the Postal Department has chalked out mail routes and plans to hire point-to-point mail delivery vehicles to reach even far flung areas to ensure delivery within a day of booking, Mr. Ranjan said.
