India Post Is Now a Logistical Partner for Millions of Traders

On May 9, India Post inked an MoU with the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) and Tripta Technologies in the presence of Devusinh Chauhan, Minister of State for Communications. The MoU permits the launch of a platform dubbed ‘Bharat EMart,’ which will allow consignments to be picked up from traders’ premises and delivered to consignees’ doorsteps across the country. It is anticipated that it will assist eight crore CAIT traders.

In the past, India Post has entered into similar partnerships with the Government e-Marketplace (GeM) and Regional Centres of the Tribal Cooperative Marketing Development Federation of India Limited (TRIFED) to facilitate parcel pick-up and delivery at the consignees’ doorsteps. India Post will soon join the Open Network for Digital Commerce (ONDC) platform, which is being built by the Ministry of Commerce as a logistics service provider.

Speaking on the occasion, the Minister of State for Communications stated that the Department of Posts has evolved with the passage of time and public expectations. With the introduction of new technology and the addition of additional services, India Post has evolved into a contemporary and diverse service provider. Through its network of 1.59 lakh post offices, it now provides banking, insurance, and last-mile delivery of benefits from many government welfare initiatives to every village.

Vineet Pandey, Secretary (Posts); Alok Sharma, DG Postal Services; Praveen Khandelwal, Secretary General, CAIT; B C Bhartia, MD, Tripta Technologies; and other senior officials were also present on the occasion.
