In reply to discussions in rajyasabha on 27/07/09 Minister for Communications and IT Sri A.Raja expressed Ministry's vision in respect of Postal Department.I am reproducing his reply from rajyasabha website.
"THE MINISTER OF COMMUNICATIONS AND
INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY (SHRI A. RAJA), replying todiscussion, said : As the hon’ble Members are aware, the Department of Posts is the largest postal network in the world which provides postal facilities within the reach of every citizen in the country at affordable prices.
These include delivery of letters, e-mail, small savings, money remittances,provisions of life insurance and other core functions.Second to the Railways, the Postal Department is one of the biggest Department in the world having huge infrastructure. It is quite natural that in a competitive world to withstand in a competitive environment something afresh must be done. By anticipating new developments in the sector, the government is well aware that the Postal Department cannot be exclusively used by the commercial department.Through the non-Plan expenditure, every year, more than Rs.1000 crores is being compensated by the Government of India. We wanted to switch over the business to some other areas; so that revenue can be accrued for this Department. We will operated the savings account. Out of which, some percentage can be given as commission. We are not going to privatize the Postal Department. How the loss incurred by the Department can be managed is the point. 9684 post offices have already been computerized till March 2009. We launched Project AERO. Last year, we modernized 500 post offices across the country. This year, we have earmarked another 500 offices.We are going to start 3000 post offices across the country.Only 5 per cent of the vacancies can be filled up according to the Department of Personnel and Training. Without prior approval, I do hope that the exemption will be obtained from the Ministry of Finance. We will ensure that the 5 per cent that has been earmarked on compassionate ground will be
strictly followed, modified Assured Career Progression (ACP) scheme, as recommended by the Sixth Pay Commission, is also under implementation. One man committee recommended some incentives for the reasons working in the extra departmental post offices. I hope, the Finance Ministry will clear this proposal.Because of the financial crunch we are not able to open post offices wherever the people need them. In the Eleventh Five Year Plan, 3000 post
offices will be, definitely, opened. These matters of rate of interest and commission are governed by the Ministry of Finance. We launched the 'Project Arrow'; we computerized the ten thousand post offices. I come to the Department of I.T. The National E-governance Programme has been
announced by the Prime Minister. One lakh Common Service Centres are going to be opened. We want that within a couple of years, up to the taluka level, the paperless Government must be ensured. The needs of the people will be put in the Common Service Centres. It will be connected with the block level, the State level and the district level."
