The Global Positioning System (GPS) — a vehicle tracking software will keep watch on the mail motor services carrying parcels and other materials in the remotest corners of the North-East.
The Department of Post launched the system recently at its Northeast and Assam circles. As many as 75 Mail Motor Vehicles fitted with GPS will function under the project which is aimed at monitoring the movement of postal vehicles and other functions of the Postal Department to improve efficiency and give better services to the people.
Out of the 75 MMVs 15 are being installed in Assam Circle and the rest 60 in other North East circle comprising of states of Meghalaya, Manipur, Arunachal Pradesh, Tripura, Nagaland and Mizoram.
An official statement said the project would help overcome the tough challenge posed by the hilly and thickly forested routes in the region and will ensure smooth and timely movement of mails and parcels across states and regions.
The position of vehicles will be displayed on a detailed digital map which would indicate date, time, speed, distance and nearest Post Office. Vehicles can be displayed on a single map window to visualise the geographical spread of fleets operating at a given point of time.
The system would also have the facility whereby drivers can issue alert through SMS for detention beyond prescribed timings at Post Offices. Drivers can also get assistance during emergency through the system.
