There is no need for deduction of this workload from the total work load as is done now. To illustrate, if a particular Post Office is in receipt of 600 unregistered articles, other than bulk mail, it has to be multiplied by 0.72 and if it receives 80 articles for 7 bulk addressees then, the work for delivery of bulk mail would be 7X2 mts = 14 mts
