New Guidelines for Addressing Letters to PCDA (O), Pune

The Principal Controller of Defence Accounts (Officers) in Pune has announced a change in the way letters are addressed to their office. With a daily influx of 5000 Dak (letters), it has become a challenge for the office to segregate and process the mail, leading to delays in adjusting claims and letters from Army Officers. The office has requested Army Officers to write one of four wings on the envelope and use separate envelopes for each wing to reduce segregation time and facilitate faster processing of claims and letters. The office has also approached postal authorities to implement the new format.
