Postal Department sees 11% jump in revenue to Rs.13000cr in FY16


The total revenue earned by Department of Posts (DoP) has grown over 11 per cent to about Rs 12,940 crore in 2015-16, Parliament was informed today.

DoP earned revenue of Rs 10,730.42 crore in 2013-14, which grew to Rs 11,635.98 crore in 2014-15 and further to Rs 12,939.79 crore in 2015-16, Communications Minister Manoj Sinha said in a written reply to Rajya Sabha.


Besides providing purely postal services, post offices perform agency functions like Saving Bank, payment of pension, sale of Cash Certificates etc on behalf of other ministries/ departments, he said adding that the revenue earned is classified under five major heads.

"There is an increasing trend in revenue in three major heads -- postage realised in cash from speed post, registry, business post, parcels etc; commission from Savings Bank; and other major receipts," he said.

There is a decline in two heads of revenue -- sale of stamps and commission on money orders and Indian Postal Orders etc, he added.

Revenue from sale of stamps declined from Rs 670.67 crore in 2013-14 to Rs 576.18 crore in 2014-15 and further fell to Rs 441.75 crore in 2015-16.

Similarly, commission from money orders and Indian postal orders reduced to Rs 464.84 crore in 2015-16 from Rs 641.98 crore in 2014-15.

Responding to a separate query, Sinha said DoP has 34,452 male postman and 2,708 female Postman as permanent employees. It has 1,332 male Postman and 287 female Postman as temporary employees.

In another response, Sinha said the government has planned to set up up to 650 branches of India Post Payments Bank, co-located at each district headquarter post office by September this year.

Also, about 1,000 ATMs are proposed to be established to facilitate the customers of post office saving bank, he said.

Sub : Implementation of Cadre Restructuring Proposal for Group-C Postal Employees in Odisha Circle - Regarding

 Sir,
            This has a kind reference to the discussions made by this Circle Secretary with the Secretary (Posts) in your kind presence on 03.03.2017 in Hotel May Fair Lagoon during the latter’s visit to Odisha.

            As you know Sir, we have categorically discussed the deficiencies noticed by this Circle Union on the above subject.

During the available time period we pointed out  regarding  discrepancy in distribution of posts, issues to be faced due to the surplus/deficit of staff amongst various Divisions after implementation, completion of  the DPC for LSG avoiding that of the HSG-II and HSG-I and without waiting for the one time absorption order etc,. The Secretary (Posts) told that he realized the genuineness of the issues which could have been sorted out by the Administration earlier and assured us in the presence of the Chief PMG, Odisha Circle and DPS(HQ), Bhubaneswar to look into the matter for bringing out a solution and asked for our representation.

As known, we handed over a Memorandum to the Secretary (Posts) containing some important  local issues apart from the issues arising out of Cadre Restructuring with request to stop issue of posting orders of the approved LSG officials till receipt of a clearance from the Secretary (Posts) on the issues raised by us in our memorandum.

A copy of the said memorandum is attached here with for kind perusal.

Thus, we would like request our Chief PMG once again kindly to wait for a definite reply from the Directorate in this regard and not to issue posting orders of the approved LSG officials till receipt of a clearance from the Secretary (Posts) on the issues raised by us in our memorandum.

A line of reply on the action taken is highly solicited.

With regards.
Yours sincerely,
