ISB Updates

A Red-Letter Day for ISB

It was indeed a proud and happy moment for Indian School of Business when in a significant move to add useful facilities on its Hyderabad campus, a delivery post office commenced operations on April 25. The post office was jointly inaugurated by Dean Rajendra Srivastava and Brigadier B Chandrasekhar, Chief Postmaster General, Telangana Circle. Accompanied by senior officials of Postal department, Brig Chandrasekhar was all praise for the role of ISB in bringing the Indian Postal Services closer to its people.

“Our people came to you for a stamp and you gave us the post office,” quipped a delighted Dean Srivastava, in a reference to the release of ISB MyStamp to commemorate 15 years of ISB, in November 2017. He was highly appreciative of the support from the Department of Posts (DoP), in fulfilling of the initiative. In a symbolic kickoff of the services, he posted the first letter to the ISB Chairman Adi Godrej.

DoP, over the last 150 years, has been the backbone of the communication system of India. They have played a vital role in the socio-economic development of the country, while touching the lives of the citizens. Brig Chandrasekhar highlighted the role of Indian Postal Services in being not merely as a mail services entity but also in being a giant in financial services―a custodian of people’s money that has been giving immense value in return.

“It’s quite a privilege for us to establish our presence in the precincts of ISB. We will not spare any effort in making this extension as a model post office in Telangana State,” he promised.

Apart from commencement of its usual bouquet of mail services, financial services, and counter services (postage stamps, post office savings and postal life insurance etc.) some other services that are likely to follow suit are Post Office Passport Seva Kendra, Postal ATM, Indian Railways Passenger Reservation Services etc. depending on the scale of operations.

Christened as ISB Campus Post Office, the installation will have a dedicated PIN code of 500 111.The post office will immediately address the challenge of mail delivery for its fraternity of faculty, students and the employees. In addition, it will serve the benefits of saving on the School’s mail room operations by utilising Speed Post for its daily mail requirements.
