Federal Minister for Postal Services and Communication Murad Saeed has announced that Pakistan Post will distribute debit cards among its pensioners by the end of this year. The minister said that all pensioners of the national postal will get the facility by December 25.
Murad announced this today while addressing a ceremony celebrating the 145th Wold Post Day at Postal Staff College.
He mentioned that the debit card facility will save elderly retired officials from standing in long queues. Besides, it will also make the encashment process easy for them.
“This service will help boost the revenue for the post besides pointing out the ‘Ghost Pensioners’ of the department,” he added.
The minister also announced 35,000 internship opportunities for youth where they can earn an extra amount by registering themselves with Pakistan Post for ‘Pick and Deliver’ services.
With the help of all the innovative steps that we are taking, Pakistan Post will be the biggest contributor to the economy in the next three years.
Regarding the job vacancies in Pakistan Post, he said that they won’t have any openings for now.
Saeed maintained that the department is generating a revenue of 300% volume with the same staff and is providing rather cheap and speedy services to the public.
