Requirement of Gensets in all Post Offices... 

National Association of Postal Employees Class C Punjab Circle has raised the issue of providing Gensets in all Post Offices  in Punjab Circle including Class B (Double Handed) and Class C (Single Handed) Post Offices as the Inverter batteries does not fulfill the requirement during the long power cuts especially in Rural Areas.

Moreover the UPS Batteries are also provide backup for few hours and there is always risk of loss of data in case of immediate shut down of systems during power failure. Hence Gensets are urgently required at all post offices for smooth functioning.

Sh.D.Kishan Rao, General Secretary NAPE C has forwarded our request to Worthy D.G. Posts New Delhi for supply of Gensets in Class B and Class C Post Offices in Punjab Circle.
