In the India's postal system, where the humble postman is often seen as the face of government services, a distressing tale unfolds. Within the corridors of the National Union of Postal Employees (NUPE), concerns arise regarding the dubious tactics employed by Divisional Heads to meet marketing targets, at the expense of ethical conduct and employee well-being.


In a formal letter addressed to the Department of Posts, NUPE's General Secretary, Nisar Mujawar, shines a light on the coercive tactics wielded by Divisional Heads. The letter underscores a troubling trend where Postman and Multi-Tasking Staff (MTS) are subjected to undue pressure, humiliation, and threats to meet illogical targets for opening POSB accounts and collecting premiums for new policies during drives and melas.


Mujawar raises alarm over the blatant disregard for directives issued by the Directorate, emphasizing the adverse impact on postal services and employee morale. Despite clear instructions prohibiting practices such as splitting higher denomination accounts and coercing staff into opening numerous small denomination accounts, Divisional Heads persist in their pursuit of targets, oblivious to the detrimental effects on mail delivery services.


The letter highlights specific instances in Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh Circles where Divisional Heads have pushed their staff to the brink, leading to instances where employees have resorted to loans to meet targets. It calls for a thorough examination of accounts opened during drives, particularly in regions where exploitation of ground-level staff is rampant.


Moreover, Mujawar advocates for recognition of exemplary Divisional Heads who achieve targets through ethical means, suggesting their methods be adopted nationwide. He stresses the importance of preserving the integrity and professionalism of postal services, urging authorities to intervene promptly to rectify the situation and prevent recurrence of such practices.


In essence, NUPE's plea serves as a clarion call for reform in the Indian postal system, where the ethos of public service and employee welfare must prevail over the relentless pursuit of targets. It underscores the need for a holistic approach to business procurement, emphasizing continuous efforts over one-off events, to ensure the satisfaction of customers and the efficiency of operations.


As stakeholders ponder over NUPE's impassioned plea, the fate of India's postal services hangs in the balance. Will authorities heed the call for reform and steer the ship back on course, or will the specter of unethical practices continue to cast a shadow over the noble profession of the postman?


Only time will tell, but one thing remains certain – the voices of NUPE and its members will not be silenced until justice is served, and integrity restored to India's postal services.


This article encapsulates the concerns raised by NUPE regarding unethical marketing practices in India's postal services, emphasizing the need for reform and ethical conduct.
