    Though there has been citizens charter hanged on the wall of the office building but the officials never adhere to the citizen charter wherein time for works were specified according to the nature of the works.

    There have been allegations that since the employees of PO were Central Government employee, none can hold them responsible for any misconduct to the PO goers. The attitude of the officials of PO seemed to harass the common people those who visit PO with excuses like shortage of staff and even shortage of stationary goods. The printing machine often remain out of order thereby delaying the up-date of pass book etc. People had to approach for several times to get simple works to be done.

    Some other victims of the harassment said Post Office is really in shambles as some of the staff behave according to their whims as if the people are at the mercy of these staffs. It is also learnt that many people closed down their accounts due to such dillydallying attitude of the officials. 

    The Post Master A Hagjer who joined very recently said he has been communicating with high officials at Silchar for posting of more staff so that no one suffer to get the services.

    People are of the opinion that the High ups at Silchar found to be reluctant to solve the issues relating to the public services at Haflong Post Office for the reasons best known to them.
