  From The Chief Postmaster General, West Bengal

Dear Colleagues,

You may be knowing that I took charge of the Chief Postmaster General of West Bengal, Sikkim, Andaman & Nicobar Islands on 26th of December,2018. This Circle has a golden tradition in providing high quality postal services to the residents of the area and I am proud to be here.

In recent months India Post took many new initiatives that brought back our organization in the limelight of the society. I believe that the RICT devices (DARPAN Project) that have been activated in our Branch Post Offices will have a long lasting impact on people residing in the rural areas about benefits of Information and Technology in day to day work. India Post Payments Bank is a new milepost in our efforts to realize the dream of digital India in the rural areas. Post Office Passport Seva Kendra (POPSK) and Aadhaar centers are also playing a very important role in delivering government services in the door step of the citizens.

I will look forward to work with you all and as head of the postal family in the Circle; I believe we should be able to fulfill the expectations of the society from the new generation Post Offices.

I wish a happy and prosperous New Year to all of you and to your families.

(Gautam Bhattacharya)
- Chief Postmaster General,
West Bengal Circle, Kolkata – 700012
