New Delhi, Sept 22 : India Post will have a changed logo from tomorrow that will be seen across all post offices and postal services of the country.
The new corporate logo for the Department of Posts will be launched by the Minister of Communications and Information Technology, A Raja. Union Minister of State for Communications and IT, Jyotiraditya Scindia will be present as the guest of honour.
Along with the change of Logo, Department of Posts has already launched a series of fully upgraded and completely new look Post Offices in the services of the rural people.
Called "Project Arrow", the launch aims to re-vitalize the post office network and enable it to play a larger role in socio-economic transformation of the country.
These new age Post Offices are meant to serve as a window to the world for the common man, - "Aam Aadmi", by focusing on their needs. By the end of the current year, 500 such Post Offices will get operational in the country. Strict adherence to the timelines is part of the strategy.
These post offices are being given a thorough make over both in terms of "physical look and feel" and upgrading service delivery through IT -enabled procedures.
Designing of exteriors and interiors, upgradation of computer hardware and software, improvement in delivery of services and upgradation in connectivity are the main features of Project Arrow.
The post office in rural areas will henceforth be a single window facility for banking, money remittance, transmission and delivery of information. Besides providing traditional services in a modern, more efficient and technology based mode, the post offices will also form an indispensable part of all social and civic initiatives such as National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme and National Old Age Pension Scheme.
With the launch of the new logo, India Post is poised for a major change in terms of new look Post Offices across India and new services.
