Barua, Samir K.
MetadataShow full item record
The items used by India Post can be classified into two broad categories: a) security items and b) non-security items. Security items are items that can be easily converted into cash, such as stamps, postal stationery, service stamps, Indian Postal Order, Kisan Vikas Patra and National Savings Certificates. The non-security items include uniforms, seals and stamps, forms and non-postal stationery. While the security items are managed by Circle Stamp Depots, the non-security items are managed by Postal Stores Depots. The focus of this case is on management of security items. The case uses two products, the Single Post Card and the Inland Letter Cover, and the operation of the Circle Stamp Depot at Ahmedabad, Head Office at Navarangpura and Sub-Post Office at IIM Ahmedabad, to raise issues related to inventory management of security items.
