The Department of Posts has issued orders for outsourcing of important customer care services like Booking of Registered and Speed post articles, eMO, acceptance of deposits in Post office Savings Bank accounts and Acceptance of PLI and RPLI proposals and premiums to a private company. The company will function in the Post Office itself. This is as per the privatization, liberalisation policy of the government. A major portion of the Post office work will be privatised this way.
NFPE has strongly protested and demanded that the outsourcing should be withdrawn.
