The post office covers a built-up area of 1,021 sq ft. Its construction was carried out using 3D concrete printing technology which is a fully automated building construction technology wherein a robotic printer deposits the concrete layer by layer as per the approved design, and special grade concrete – which hardens quickly – is used to ensure bonding between the layers for the purpose of printing the structure.

The construction was also carried out at a cost of Rs 23 lakh, around 30-40 per cent less compared to the cost involved in conventional methods.

The post office, which was virtually inaugurated by the Union minister from the General Post Office building, was completed in just 43 days – two days ahead of its deadline. 

The construction of this post-office was carried out by Larsen & Toubro Limited with technological support from IIT Madra.
