Postal services @ Commonwealth Games venues

Department of Post has proposed to set-up fully computerized post-offices at various venues identified for Commonwealth Games to provide services to the large number of tourist that are expected to turn-up during the event.

"We have written letter to the games authority for space to set-up completely computerized temporary post offices during common wealth games and are waiting for their reply," said a senior officer from Department of Post who did not want to be named.

The department has identified six spots where these post offices can be set-up. These slots include venues at Commonwealth Games village and three officially approved hotels by Commonwealth Games authority namely Ashoka, Samrat and Janpath. DoP has requested 200 to 300 square feet of space for these post offices. The decision on the size and model of IT infrastructure required for these post offices are yet to be worked out.

"We are waiting for consent of the CWG authority. Once we get the permission then we will work out on the infrastructure and support system that will be required for it. We are expecting that the decision on this will be taken in the next 10-15 days," said the official.

DoP will provide all the services that are being provided by its post-offices under Project Arrow, including travel and financial services from Thomas Cook India.

Common Wealth games are scheduled to start from 3rd October 2010 in Delhi.
