All Heads of Circles,

Sub: Revision of SIU norms for Divisional Office Establishments and Inspectors Establishments in Department of Posts (DOP) reg.

I am directed to say that the proposal of revision of SIU norms for Divisional Office Establishment and Inspectors Establishment i.e. norms for creation of new Postal Divisions and Sub Divisions in Department of Posts is under consideration in this Directorate.

2. The current SIU norms (copy enclosed) notified vide this Directorate letter No.28-16/70-PE-I, were formulated after carrying out a detailed work study of various Postal Divisions. In these SIU norms, a co-efficient has been identified for calculation of workload of various postal establishments as well as for calculation of workload of different posts in these offices. This co-efficient needs revision as it was devised in 70s.

3. Further, the traditional work pattern in the Divisional Offices and Inspector Establishments has undergone a drastic change over the last five decades due to computerisation of Post offices and introduction of new services like Passport Seva Kendra, Common Service Center, Aadhaar updation and Railway Ticket Reservation in Post Offices.

4. Circles may kindly furnish their specific views/suggestions w.r.t. revision of the present Establishment norms including the co-efficient mentioned in para 2 above, in view of the fact that postal establishments have evolved immensely since 1970s when the SIU norms were last notified.

5. This has approval of Competent Authority.

Yours faithfully,

(Prabha Sharma)
