Shri  Ravi Shankar Prasad, Hon’ble Minister of Communications & IT and Law & Justice, met 13 Probationers of the 2013 batch of the Indian Postal Service at Sanchar Bhawan on 4th September 2014. Secretary, Department of Posts and Director, Rafi Ahmed Kidwai National Postal Academy were also present during the interaction.

While addressing the Probationers, the Hon’ble Minister highlighted the need to expose the young officers to the latest developments and emerging trends in the postal and logistics sectors. The Minister also highlighted the Digital India project of the Government of India to make broadband facility available in every village across the country. This would drive up e-Commerce business in villages. With its unparalleled rural reach, India Post would be best suited to offer delivery services to e-Commerce players. The Post Office can also become a focal point for delivering not only Government services but also e-services to the people as in e-service centres, apart from commercially remunerative services for corporate/private players including conducting market surveys, information dissemination, promoting digital literacy etc.

In conclusion, the Minister urged the going officers to drive change in work culture, focusing on provision of public services by all employees as public servants, & shed the mantle of being “Officers”.
