One room for all letters to a city, rent paid by employees, post office of Kamote irks residents.

DSCN0154Residents in Kamote region tired of complaining against the risky condition of its post office. Even after publishing problems in different newspapers and complaining to authorities, post office remains ignored in a rented ruined room. 6 postmen are working in the post office, including officers, is extremely insufficient for growing population in Kamote. All letters and posts to the node of Kamote and J.C.I.E. industrial area are kept in this room. For categorization and distribution of letters, postmen trust shadow of the tree near to post office. As monsoon is expected, managing of all letters will be a problem here.

Department of post office or nearby industries are not interested in providing a good place to keep letters and provide essential amenities. Many mistakes had happened due to the insufficient staff and space distributing and managing the letters. Residents in the Kamote region have complained the irresponsible works of postmen, as many letters are distributed wrongly.

But postmen complain that this happens due to insufficient staffs and space to manage letters. Even the room allotted for post office, inside MIDC, is in rent and is too far from residential areas. Limitation of space and bad condition of the buildings are increasing the chaos in hectic duties of postmen in the office. The Kamote post office over burdened with letters and speed mails, need more space to do the works, as letters are keeping outside of the office.
T.R.Janardanan, a former customs officer and resident of kamote says, “My son had applied for some higher education in Australia and reply was about to come through post. We didn’t get the letter in time as we expected. Even the officers in post office were unaware of such a letter. After more than two weeks, one of my friends told me that he got a letter in my son’s name. My son would have missed such a good opportunity, due to irresponsibility of postmen.

Amrapali Jadav, prime post master, said “our post office is in very pathetic condition. Department is ignoring the difficult conditions of post office for many years. The post office is working in a rented room, which is insufficient and in pathetic condition. Even for the rent we have to pay.”

      with a huge potential but neglected by many
      requests, complaints and resolutions happened many times on this post office.
      complaint have gone to capital many times, but still…….
      CIDCO, Industry (for which it was created) or even postal department is not interested in providing a place for post office in kamote…….
      all over india Post offices have similar conditions……
      post office are neglected by our authorities in the era of email and sms……
      but still some believe that postmen and post offices can do great works in our society.
      because these postmen are connected each and every corner of our city……with a huge potential but neglected by many
