Ref.- Circle Office letter No. DOP/Odisha/COVID-19/2020, dated 15.04.2020
This is to intimate that the bigger offices like MDGs / HOs / GPOs have been ordered to run the offices in skeletal mode with less than 50% staff vide C O letter under reference.
In this context, we would like to bring your kind notice that while doorstep delivery has been ordered to be stopped during the lockdown period prioritizing window delivery using the phone numbers of the addressees given on the wrappers, there is no need of full attendance of delivery staff even in other offices, viz, LSG and below.
Illustratively, we can say that many offices in Bhubaneswar Division like Rasulgarh (‘A’ Class), S E Railway Project Complex (‘B’ Class), KIIT SO (‘C’ Class), R R L SO (‘C’ Class,), Budheswari Colony (LSG), Baramunda Colony (LSG) etc are having 8 to 12 postmen / delivery staff and there is no need to call all these delivery staff to attended office during the lockdown period. This will unnecessarily affect the so called social distancing to contain spread of COVID-19.
Similar might be the situation in all other Divisions of Odisha Circle.
Therefore, it is requested kindly to instruct all Divisional / Unit heads to deploy minimum delivery staff on roster basis in such offices (LSG and below) till lockdown period is over to maintain proper social distancing to contain spread of COVID-19.
A line of reply on the nature of action taken is highly solicited.
