Kolpex 2015 and e-Post Office

    The Chief Post Master General Ms Arundhati Ghosh and I had a meeting last month based on which the Postal Department has decided to hold its KOLPEX 2015 philatelic exhibition at Nazrul Tirtha on 11-13 March 2015. During the exhibition two special covers, one on "Howrah Bridge" and another on "Core Banking Solution” will be released on 11th March and 13th March respectively. Philatelic quiz, drawing competition and a power-point presentation on philately will also be organised during this three day exhibition.
    In course of the meeting, I requested Ms Ghosh to set up an e Post Office at New Town, considering that New Town is positioning itself as a Smart City with Wi Fi, on-line plan sanction, web-casting, CCTVs and e-tickets. She agreed that it would be done.
