Our Department of Post was also declared essential service and our Postal Employees have rendered their services in various ways including delivery of medicines and other item related to treatment during Covid-19 crisis and lockdown period. Our Postal Staff including GDS have provided services of remitting money on the door step of public through A.E.P.S During service in pandemic crisis period so many of our officials got infected with Corona virus and so many have lost their lives.
