The Postmaster General,
Central Region,
Trichirappalli 620 001. 
     Sub:  Request to stop  the proposal  of shifting  the Divisional Office  Srirangam Division to Trichy –Reg.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
With reference to the  subject mentioned that the Divisional administration had met with the service unions and they  had putforth the following :-

01. Divisional office should be in Divisional Jurisdiction.
02. Cent percent staff are ladies and it is difficult for them to travel 20 kms up and down daily to TRichy HO Sorting, Moreover, in the middle of the academic year they have to take care of kids going to school (primary standard) and their family, it is difficult for them to attend office in new premises.
03. The available space in the proposed new premises is also not enough to accommodate as huge RPLI proposals and records are there.
04. In case of emergency, Supdt of Post offices could not be contacted by the office bearers immediately as the distance is 10 kms away from srirangam. It takes 2 hours up and down to go and meet the Divisional Head.
05.Srirangam is an world important pilgrim centre, and  there are frequent visits of  higher  level officers and even Ministerial staff  and  hence  in order to cater their needs, D.O. should be at the  Headquarters. 
06. Moreover Srirangam is Chief Ministers personal constituency and all Departments related to State and Central are here.  And  Chief  Minister’s office is also not interested to have this proposal.

On the background  of the  above,  our  Circle Union requests  the PMG, CR  to re-consider the  shifting  proposal  to Trichy. Instead, alternate building  may  kindly be searched and  secured at Srirangam  itself , in order  to  satisfy the interest  of  both the staff and the local administration.

With regards,
Note:-This letter is handed over to  the PMG, CR  during the  course of  RJCM meeting held at Chennai on 24.7.2012 and assured for  consideration by the  PMG, CR.
