Bill collections at postal Mee Seva centres soon

VIJAYAWADA: The ‘Mee Seva’ services being rendered by Department of Posts (India Post) are set to be expanded soon to include bill collections at 29 Head Post Offices (HPO) in Vijayawada Region. At present various certificates issued by the Revenue and other departments, PAN and ration cards etc. are being provided through the designated post offices in Guntur, Khammam, Krishna, Nellore, Prakasam, West Godavari districts which fall in Vijayawada Region.
India Post started extending Mee Seva on-line services in February after they were implemented as a pilot project in 95 post offices across the State, Assistant Director of Postal Services K. Ramesh told The Hindu. The response from people has been encouraging and a total of 177 types of services would be rendered including the ones being extended currently.
Pack Post is another scheme that evoked good response. Under the scheme, parcels weighing one to 20 kilos, including a sizable quantity of pickles and medicines, are being dispatched to 220 countries for charges ranging from Rs. 50 to Rs. 275.
This facility called WorldNet Express was initially available only at the Buckinghampet post office but it was later expanded to all HPO in the region. A consignment to the USA is delivered in just three days including the time taken for transporting them by road / rail to Hyderabad from where they are flown. The charges are far less compared to that of private couriers. India Post has recently partnered with Deutsche Post World Net and the scheme has since been garnering larger revenues and quality of service has improved a lot.
My Stamp, a scheme under which customers can have their photos printed on the stamps and use them as normal postage stamps is set for expansion throughout the region in the months ahead. Only a few post offices are offering this facility now due to logistical reasons.
