Nikiforov, Russia’s minister of telecom and mass communications, and Ma Junsheng, director general of China’s State Post Bureau, join the line-up of high-level governmental officials who will speak at the conference.

CAG flays DoP for fraudulent encashment of postal savings scheme

A fraudulent encashment of Kisan Vikas Patra/National Savings Certificates worth Rs 9.01 crore between 1996 and 2004 could have been prevented if the Head Post Office in Varanasi had sent the statement of unsold cash certificates to Director of Accounts (Postal), CAG said today.
”...statement of unsold cash certificates was not being sent by HPO (Head Post of office) Varanasi Cantt to Director of Accounts (Postal), Lucknow. If the prescribed procedure ...had been scrupulously followed that would have prevented the fraudulent encashment of KVPs/NSCs worth Rs 9.01 crore,” a CAG report tabled in Parliament said.
In another incident, the auditor has found irregularity in payment of interest amounting to Rs 2.26 crore to subscribers of Public Provident Fund Scheme as provisions relating to the scheme were not scrupulously followed.
The report said Post offices in Delhi have also not been able realise revenue to the extent of Rs 98.36 lakh due to failure of Chief Post Master General in Delhi to deduct commission in advance on purchase of revenue stamps from the state government.
The CAG Report for the year ended March, 2011 noted an infructuous expenditure worth Rs 64.62 lakh due to failure of Department of Post (DoP) to construct a postal complex on a plot acquired in 1990.

Sibal for separating regulatory services functions of DoP
New Delhi, Aug 29: 

Communications and IT Minister Kapil Sibal has called for restructuring of 150-year-old Department of Post by separating its regulatory and services functions to meet challenges of technological age.
“The postal department should also restructure itself to meet challenges of 21st century. The Department of Post (DoP) should look into prospect of bifurcating the Ministry from the regulator and the operator, just as was done in the telecom sector,” Sibal told PTI.
He said that the DoP should explore possibility of having different entities namely policy making, regulator and service provider.
“No decision has been taken yet. It is all a matter of debate and dialogue at the moment,” Sibal said.
DoP, which has around 5 lakh employees, is responsible for policy making, regulation and providing postal services, at present.
The over 100-year old Indian Post Office Act bars any individual or entity from delivering letters for commercial purpose. The business of private courier companies is built around delivering documents, parcels and others items which do not fall under the category of ‘letter’.
Sources in the Ministry said that Sibal held a meeting with DoP officials early this week on the issue of finanlisation of the National Postal Policy 2012 and asked them to prepare roadmap for restructuring as well.
They said that next meeting on the issue is expected to take place in 15 days.
They said that the Minister, in June, had asked DoP to set up a body to oversee the unbundling of its functions.
An independent body named Postal Development Board (PDB) will be responsible for the overall development and governance of the postal sector, they added. The PDB will also draw a road-map for unbundling of postal department functions.
The Minister had also instructed DoP to constitute a Postal Advisory Board (PAB), in line with Telecom Commission, which should have representation from Government, industry players, academics and other stakeholders, they said. The role of PAB will be to provide inputs to PDB on policy matters.
The government in 1997 created the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) to regulate the sector. Under New Telecom Policy 1999, Government further restructured DoT by separating service providing function from it.

How to think positive and improve your life

Most of us do no have the perfect job or the perfect life that we have dreamt of living in the big city. 
Hence, to pull through the day and do your best at your make-do job, you need to be motivated and encouraged to think positively. A lot can be achieved if you are an optimist, ask the big dreamers who believed and put their
 heart and soul in achieving their dreams. We give you the top 5 mantras for positive thinking.

Learning and growing: To begin our journey, we asked Life Coach, Malti Bhojwani, about her mantras for getting through life's difficult moments. She talks about one of her role models, Oprah Winfrey, and her mantra - Live your Best Life, "I love Oprah Winfrey, she has inspired me for decades and even more so when I chose the path of personal development and became a life coach."

Malti says, "To Live your Best Life is to: Be more
 splendid, more extraordinary. Use every moment to fill yourself up, use what you already have to move towards being better, to evolving and growing your life."

To feel empowered: Empowering yourself involves positive thoughts and self-belief. Malti speaks highly of Helen Reddy's song - I am strong, I am invincible, I am woman, "She's Australian and her song though was popular since it came out in 1975, but then it was revived when Samantha, Carrie, Charlotte and Miranda performed it in the 2nd Sex And The Citymovie."

She says "Whenever you feel like you are unsure about doing something, try singing this in your head or out loud, if I had to, I can do anything, 'I am strong, I am invincible, I am woman'."

Replace negativity: When problems are thrown at us, pessimism automatically creeps in. We feel the problem is too overwhelming for us to solve and often go into depression.

In her upcoming book Don't Think of a Blue Ball, in the chapter on "replacing negativity," Malti writes, "Your self-talk means well, it just needs to be trained to use language effectively to help you manifest your desires instead of perpetuating your current results.

Not entertaining the negative chatter is great, but it is impossible to do unless you give yourself new scripts. You need to become like a sentry or watchman of your chatter and notice each disempowering one when they come up and then replace them with empowering ones. If I asked you now, 'whatever you do, DO NOT think of a blue ball,' what is the image you conjured up in your head? A blue ball! You cannot not think of something, without first thinking of it. Can you?

So as Mike Dooley says, Thoughts become Things, choose the good ones."

Combat stage fright or cold feet: Most of us feel tongue tied in front of an audience; we choke and the embarrassment is just too much to handle. Here, Malti gives us her secret, "My personal mantra when fearful or nervous 'Oh What The *#@+, go for it anyway'. I learnt this at a personal development intensive program I did many years ago, when I was younger, and it felt OK to swear when "pumped" I say "Ohhhhhhhhhhhh what the heck, go for it anyway" and then chant it as I go for it. I often teach this to my clients and when I start it sounds like I'm about to say Om, so it is quite funny."

Perseverance: Obama believed in Yes We can, so did millions of Americans; this positive attitude made him the first African American President. But does perseverance simply mean that you think you can, or that you persist and keep trying till you do?

Bhojwani's mantra is, "I can and I will - I am not sure who coined this mantra, but I like this one for when I need to be focused and keep at a job or a practice to achieve a very specific goal.

Whether you think you can or think you can't, you are right.- Henry Ford

Saying 'I can' gives you the belief that you are capable and saying you will affirms that you have the desire to do it. Combined this is a super-powerful mantra to support you in shooting your target just like a archer on the battlefield, no matter that chaos is going on around him."
