Sub: Instructions regarding handling situation and disruption on account of COVID-19 – reg.
Ref: Z-92011/25/2020-Coord/O&M dtd 27.03.2020.
Vide our letters even No. dated 23.03.2020, 24.03.2020 and31-03-2020 we have suggested temporary withdrawal of postal services but in vain.
We have suggested restoration of service in a phased manner for the reasons best known to the administration. In spite of the fact, Kerala Circle administration has submitted a proposal to the Government of Kerala for payment of cash to the public at their doorstep, from their Aadhar linked bank accounts, through the postman of the concerned area, utilizing the Aadhar enabled Payment System (AePS) IPPB. It is reported that the deal, including inauguration has been finalized. We, therefore, request to reiterate the instructions on safety measures and also to consider the following in the best interest of our valued customers:
Amend limit on SB Deposits and Withdrawals: The present limit for acceptance of deposit at BOs is Rs.25000/- to be at least Rs.1,00,000/- and withdrawal limit of Rs.5000/- at BO to be Rs.10,000/- to meet the requirement/demand of the customers.
Hoping early favourable action, with a line in reply which will be highly appreciated.
