There are reports that special exclusive PIN-codes for select government-buildings including of postal headquarters ‘Daak Bhawan’ have been abolished perhaps because of their unpopularity. If it was to be done, it should have been with publicity. Department of Posts should clarify actual position in this regard.
Present Postal-Index-Number (PIN) code system in Delhi adopted several decades back needs to be reallocated with large-scale changes in PIN code boundaries where areas covered by some PIN codes have much less population/area/received postal articles while many others are comparatively too big. New PIN codes should equally divide the area covered, and PIN codes of neighbouring areas should be in serial order. Major roads, river or railway-lines should divide new PIN code zones. Rather such revised PIN code numbers can then be made base for delimitation to fix boundaries of constituencies for Municipal Corporation, Vidhaan Sabha and Lok Sabha.
Department of Posts should also communicate with all offices (private or government) situated at Sansad Marg (New Delhi) to use ‘Sansad Marg’ in their communications rather than trans lated English version ‘Parliament Street’. It is a commonly known fact that ‘Sansad Marg’ being a popular noun can and should not be translated in English as ‘Parliament Street’.
