Following the increase in the number of Covid cases including among staff members, the Dept of Posts has issued an order restricting the functioning of post offices to 2pm everyday until further notice.
Mylapore Times had put out a story yesterday of staffers of Mandaveli PO requesting the customers to visit before 2pm in light of dwindling staff members.
But now the Dept has made it official and restricted the functioning across post offices to 2pm.
The Dept has asked all POs to put this info on the notice board. The Dept has also asked the respective POs to have enough staff to ensure despatch of Speed posts and Regd parcels in a timely manner.
