Two city post offices to go solar

Date : 25.2.2017

Two city post offices to go solar

The postal department is all set to do its bit for the environment with a few post offices likely to go solar soon. acilities in the city which have their own premises — in Anna Nagar and Besant Nagar — will be fitted with solar power units this fiscal. 


Work is on to provide solar panels for these buildings and soon, these post offices will take their first steps towards energy self-sufficiency. 
Post offices in Kalasapakkam in the Tiruvannamalai division and Gingee and Bahour in the Puducherry division were recently provided with solar power units at a total cost of ₹11 lakh. They have managed to tide over power shortage and also reduce electricity bills by up to 25%. 

Officials of the Postal Department said the move to shift to renewable energy had also improved functioning . The installation of solar power units ensured that erratic power supply did not hamper counter services in the post offices, officials said. 

A sum of ₹6 lakh had been allotted for the installation of the solar power units in the two post offices. These offices would be equipped to function exclusively on solar power, said an official. 

However, staff members in the post offices noted that large offices with many counters would need more solar power units of higher capacity to be self-sufficient. The Postal Department plans to expand the project to more post offices in a phased manner. Funds for the project would be sought from the Postal Directorate, officials said.

NAPE Group -C decided to go on Strike on 16.3.2017

Date : 10.2.2017

NAPE Group-C decided to go on Strike on 16.3.2017.

In the PJCA held on 19/12/2016 the NFPE appealed the FNPO to participate in the strike notice given by the confederation for the demands relating to CG employees. The FNPO affiliates refused to participate the call given by confederation in Feb 2017 thereafter postponed to16/3/17. Thereafter they appealed to participate along with PJCA. The FNPO made clear that for the demands of postal employees who are the part of the CG employees to consider giving a separate notice on the same day in March 2017. Accordingly the NAPE gr c on 7/2/2017 in its policy and program unanimously decided, in future to go with NJCA for 7th cpc related issues and with PJCA on sectional demands. Accordingly the FNPO decided to serve strike immediately and it is nothing to do the confederation call. There is some confusion with the rank and file of NAPE gr c following the confederation call (Left party afflicted unions) the strike call of FNPO is in the larger interest of Postal employees in particular and CG employees as a hole to protest against the Central Government attitude. This is to avoid confusion in some sections of NAPE Group- C
