To,

All Head of Circles/Regions,

Sub: – Regarding completion of SOL merger activity for merged CBS post offices.

Sir/Madam.

A detailed Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for SOL merger activity for merged CBS post offices was shared by CEPT with CPCs/Circles through email dated 03.10.2017. When a CBS post office is merged with another CBS post office, all the accounts/agents/BOs etc should also be transferred to the SOL ID of the other CBS post office.

2. It has been brought to the notice of the Postal Directorate that most circles have not completed SOL merger activity as prescribed. As a result, accounts are still mapped to the merged SOL ID. This may lead to public complaint, incorrect accounting and misappropriation of government money.

3. In view of above, I am directed to share the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for SOL merger activity once again. The SOP must be followed in all instances of merger of one CBS post office into another. The existing pendency must be cleared by 31.07.2021 under intimation to this office.

4. It is requested to circulate this SB Order to all concerned for information and necessary action.

5. This is issues with approval of the DDG (FS).

Yours Sincerely

(Devendra Sharma)
Assistant Director (SB-II)
