With an aim to enhance competencies of about 4 lakh Gramin Dak Sevaks and departmental employees, an e-learning portal of the Department of Posts has been launched.
Named ‘Dak Karmayogi’, the e-learning portal was launched by Ashwini Vaishnaw, Minister of Communications, Railways, Electronics & IT, and Devusinh Chauhan, Minister of State for Communications.
The newly launched portal, developed ‘In-House’ under vision of ‘Mission Karmayogi’, will enable trainees to access uniform standardized training content to enable them to effectively deliver a number of G2C services for enhanced customer satisfaction.
A system generated course completion certificate will be sent automatically on registered email id of the trainee on successful completion of final summative assessment. Participants will be able to share their feedback, ratings and suggestions for each and every video and other learning content to ensure necessary enrichment.
With the launch of ‘Dak Karmayogi’, training will be available to Departmental employees and Gramin Dak Sevaks any time any where. This will help them upgrade their attitude, skill and knowledge (ASK), as per their convenience. The portal is expected to go a long way in being an enabler in providing better services by upgrading employees and Gramin Dak Sevaks.
Currently, Department of Posts offers training to its employees through its network of 10 Postal Training Centres/Regional Training Centre and a central training institute named Rafi Ahmed Kidwai National Postal Academy (RAKNPA).
