Posts seek govt nod to deliver driving licences

PANAJI: The postal department has approached Goa government for delivery of driving licenses and registration certificate (RC) books through speed post. This, they believe, will ensure the fast delivery of vital documents at the door steps of the customers.
Postmaster general (Business development and marketing) Jaswinder Singh said, "For convenience of Goans a proposal has been made to the state government for acceptance of electricity bills at the post office as we have a bigger reach."
Also, in view of fast growing demand for gold as an avenue of investment, India Post has tied up with Reliance Money Infrastructure for sale of gold coins of 24 carat purity through-the network of post offices. "In Goa, the sale of gold coins shall commence shortly at Margao, Mapusa, Ponda and Calangute post offices," said Singh.
"Due to vintage location of post offices, India Post is selling railway tickets on PRS terminals provided by Indian railways in post offices. It is proposed to start the sale of railway tickets through PRS terminals in post offices located at Pernem, Calangute, Mapusa, Margao, Canacona and Panaji. The sale of railway tickets through these post offices shall not only boost tourism in Goa, but also facilitate Goans in undertaking railway journey to Mumbai, Pune and other neighbouring areas," he said.
"During the last couple of years the department of posts have made efforts for better and faster delivery of services to the general public. In addition to improving the normal services related to mails, parcels and saving banks, various internet based services have been started in the post offices," he said.
