P&T staff at the Post office of R. A. Puram say they need office space to relocate from the present location on R. K. Mutt Road at the MTC Mandaveli bus terminus.
At present, the post office is at a rented space “The owners of this space are asking us to vacate as the Chennai Metro Rail corridor will be passing through this area,” says S. K. Syed Mohamed, postmaster.
“Also the building is more than 70 years old. It is in a very bad state now. We feel that any moment the ceiling may collapse and we don’t want to face such a situation,” he told this reporter on Thursday.
Mohamed said that he has been seeking space for the past six months and it has not been easy.
The office is in need of 2400 sq ft hall for rent in R. A .Puram. Property owners who are interested to rent space can contact the postmaster Syed Mohamed at 9445252780 or R. A.Puram Post Office at 24939525.
