14 September 2016 Current Affairs GK: The government has launched toll free number 1924 to register postal complaints, over a month after introducing Twitter Sewa for redressal of telecom and postal grievances.
Prime Minister has asked all departments to set up and strengthen public grievances redressal system. Moving on these lines, we started Twitter Sewa on August 2 and now we have issued a toll free number 1924 to address postal complaints .
The service will be operational initially for 12 hours on working days between 0800 hrs to 2000 hrs.
Sinha said the complaints will be addressed in 24 hours unless they are related to policy matters.
The service has been started initially in three languages -- Hindi, English, Malayalam and gradually we will start services in all scheduled languages .
The DoP will set up a nodal officer in all postal circles who will handle public complaints.
In three months we will start providing services in all languages on India Posts helpline number. Meanwhile, we will direct calls received in any other language to the concerned circle. If required, we will also expand operating hours from 12 to 24 .
The complaints received on the toll free number would be registered in Computerised Customer Care (CCC) Centre portal by the operators at the Dak Bhawan and the 11 digits ticket number would be provided to the complainants.
If the complaint is already registered, the complainant would be informed about the status as viewed in CCC portal.
