Indian Railway News: Indian Railways has announced to end the post of postmaster. It has been said from the railways that the posts of Khalasi were colonial times and now there will be no recruitment to these posts. In fact, the work of the Khalasi was like that of peons posted in the houses of railway officials during the British rule. In an order issued on 6 August, the Railway Board has said that the issue of telephone attendant-cum-postalists (TADK) is being reviewed.
There is a review in the Railway Board regarding the issue related to the appointment of TADK. Therefore, it has been decided that the process of appointment of new people as TADK should not be carried forward nor should an immediate appointment be made.
The order said that further, from July 1, 2020, all the cases approved for such appointments can be reviewed and the board can be advised. This can be strictly followed in all railway establishments.
Let us tell you that the Center and Railways have already been targeting to reduce government jobs and the decision to abolish these jobs may once again come into question. It is important that railways have postal messengers. Not only this, these messengers keep sending messages regularly from the regional offices located in Kolkata, Mumbai, Secunderabad, Chennai, Hubli etc. of the Railways. Although all this work can be done through phone, fax or e-mail, but even then this system costs crores of rupees every year.
