and Uber cabs from illegally plying in the city" He said “These companies which do not have the permission to run business in Delhi are running 60000 cabs in the capital city This is a clear pointer that a secret understanding with the government has been reached" Stating that the cab companies charge fares at their will which are sometimes far below the cost price Col Sehrawat said “This has halved the earnings of autorickshaw drivers Kejriwal’s coffers are brimming over while auto drivers are struggling for survival as their means of livelihood are threatened by Ola and Uber “Some of the Delhites feel that they are getting cheaper trips from this companies But they will soon feel the heat after one of these competing companies achieves monopoly over the Delhi market" he said “Talks are on between Ola and Uber for a merger Delhi may see a rise in taxi fare soon after such merger happens” the rebel AAP MLA said He cited the example of China where the Uber China was bought over by a local company to monopolise over the market and fares were increased and the benefits of the drivers were decreased soon after the monopoly was achieved If the monopoly becomes a reality the legislator said that the AAP government will have to take onus “In that case the Delhi government will be responsible for the plight of the Delhites Transport is a state subject" said Col Sehrawat

August this year ordered them not to charge more than the fares notified by the government They continue to get away because Kejriwal has reached a secret deal with Ola and Uber in order to raise

Terminus (formerly Victoria Terminus) is the imposing building of the General Post Office of Mumbai Having completed over 100 years it is trying to remain relevant in an online world where people write e-mails instead of letters and online banking is the buzzword instead of savings in a postal account The Mumbai GPO is the biggest post office in the country and one of the biggest in the world “Designed in the Indo Sarasenic style by John Begg consultant to the government of India the style came out of a conscious decision by the British to adapt the styles of their administrative buildings to the local styles of architecture” said P N Ranjit Kumar postmaster general Mumbai Region Maintenance of this Grade I heritage building is a big challenge “The general maintenance work of this building costs anything from Rs 50 lakh onwards While we pay for that we need to carry out conservation of the building which we cannot afford as it will cost us Rs 16 crore and we don’t have the funds We are now looking at private players to help us” said Kumar During monsoons the facade has to be covered with plastic to protect it from damage Constructed between 1904 and 1913 it had cost 1809000 rupees then This land previously housed staff quarters of St John’s Hospital The Business Hall of GPO is unique with 101 counters following the addition of the 1200 square metre large bi-centenary hall “The earlier post office building was near the docks It was shifted next to Victoria Railway Terminus now the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus after construction of the railway network so that all mail dispatches were brought in and delivered using railways” said Kumar Heavily influenced by Islamic style of architecture the dome is designed on the lines of Gol Gumbaz of Bijapur The lift of the building is the second oldest operational lift in the city Presently over 1500 people work here For the past decade it has been trying to provide online services to be an attractive option for the younger generation “There are over 350 post offices in Mumbai and 1100 post offices if you include outskirts of Navi Mumbai We are trying to ensure all our services including banking are available online and have a target of 2017 for this across India Right now you can access your postal account from any post office” said Kumar He adds there is a need to bring about a postal transformation “People don’t write letters anymore The number of letters we receive has been going down by 10 percent every year” he said The post office is increasingly becoming the agency for delivering government’s social service schemes and pension schemes “In 2003 we started with e-post our way to bridge the digital divide Under this service you could write an e-mail and it would be delivered to the post office next to the person’s address if he doesn’t have access to a computer” said Kumar This service was a hit with stock market agents Their instant money order services is widely used Most of its revenue comes from financial services provided by GPOs The need to keep up with technology has meant training employees so that they are well-versed with technology “The entire staff was given training from 2013-15 There are technological challenges but we are trying to overcome them For instance now posts like postal assistant require a person to know how to operate computers” said Kumar Another area they are trying to re-invent is the philatelic section “Youngsters collecting stamps have decreased We are trying to promote stamps as story telling vehicles” he added They have held philatelic exhibitions A recent stamp festival in Navi Mumbai saw children talking about their favourite stamps They wrote and mailed post cards Another challenge faced by the GPO is that with shift of focus from South Mumbai to Northern and Suburban areas it is no longer as profitable as Dadar and Navi Mumbai post offices “It is growing but not as much as Dadar GPO” he admits The only growing area for GPOs seems to be parcel processing centers with the boom in the e-commerce But they still haven’t given up on the idea of doing things the old way and are opening a gift shop in Mumbai GPO which will sell stationery and curios This shop is expected to be operational by January 26 Have a comment or suggestion for Once Upon A Time Write to mumbainewsline @expressindiacom

Preeti Sharma Menon Related News From thousands of volunteers then to a handful few now and from nearly 800 office bearers in its heyday to none today the Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) presence in Maharashtra has plummeted steadily ironically due to the same brand of politics that it had once vowed to fight The party born after a nationwide anti-corruption wave had projected itself as a credible alternative to mainstream political outfits by promising transparency and greater public say in governance However it has now been reduced to less than a fence player in Maharashtra due to internal bickering and unilateral decisions from the central leadership that didn’t go down well with several local leaders The ouster of Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan further drove a wedge among the party’s Maharashtra leadership and the decision to stay out of Maharashtra elections dampened many volunteers AAP insiders say Disillusioned AAP leaders in Maharashtra also complain about a sense of autocracy in the party’s functioning with Arvind Kejriwal at the helm and the Delhi team dictating decisions “We believe in the original ideology of the party We don’t want AAP to be identified by just Kejriwal or else there would be no difference between outfits like the BJP with Narendra Modi as its face and the Congress which is governed by the Gandhi family” said an AAP leader from Mumbai who did not wish to be named Moreover AAP’s move to appoint six nodal persons to set its beleaguered Maharashtra unit in order has further irked the local leaders with three of the six ‘prabharis’ being Delhi legislators “Why do people from Delhi need to be brought in to increase the party’s presence in Maharashtra This is just another example of how the party is turning out to be no different from any other political party” said an AAP leader who had once contested the Lok Sabha elections for the party but now claims to be a “very passive member” of the organisation Mayank Gandhi who has been in the AAP since its inception said “The Maharashtra unit was perhaps AAP’s best team in terms of activities and cohesiveness The party’s Mission Vistaar was the best thing that could happen There was some unrest but things changed when the Delhi leadership disbanded the Maharashtra unit suddenly” Gandhi who had in the past been critical of the way Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan were ousted quit the AAP’s national executive about a month after the dissolution of the Maharashtra unit saying that the present condition of its politics was unpalatable and he was losing interest AAP had launched Mission Vistaar to rope in more volunteers after its rout in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls In Maharashtra it had managed to poll only 22 percent of the votes Soon after the elections the party appointed Subhash Ware as state convenor after Anjali Damania decided to step down from the post Senior party leaders attributed the decision to negative feedback gathered by Mission Vistaar observers on the then leadership and the need to have a leader with a mass base Apart from Damania Preeti Sharma Menon had also decided to step down from party posts citing personal reasons A senior AAP member said “In the entire reshuffle some people were displaced Their positions changed and it didn’t go down well with them They spew venom about the Maharashtra unit to the central leadership and eventually the entire Maharashtra executive was scrapped This is the exact kind of politics that we wanted to fight against in the first place It was pure internal politics of sycophancy; it changed us” However Ware who has been devoting most of his time to social work ever since AAP pulled the plug on its Maharashtra unit said that he hasn’t lost faith in the party yet “In certain situations when things don’t go as planned it is important to take a backseat and remain silent than muddle the situation further and cause any more harm to the party I will wait for things to get back to normal” he said For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Parthasarathi Biswas | Pune | Published: September 21 2015 12:28 am Related News THE
