Much-sought change blowing through govt postal services

A wind of positive change is blowing through the government's postal services as huge opportunities will open up for more entrepreneurs in Khulna and Barisal divisions with the imminent digitization of the postal services.Officials at the Postal Department informed that the government has  taken up a project to incorporate e-centers in 249 post offices in the two divisions to facilitate various e-services to people that will also create spaces for entrepreneurship in the sector.

 Currently, 2,590 entrepreneurs have been engaged in providing the e-service through the e-centers already existing in the post offices in 22 districts under the divisions. Tahmina Akter, an entrepreneur from Nelahpur village of Rupsha Upazila in Khulna, told this correspondentthat how this entrepreneurship has changed her life.

 She used to work as a postmaster of the village post office. It was much difficult for her to manage her family with the poor salary, she said, but is earning Tk 15,000-20,000 per month after the conversion of the post office into an e-center.

Like Tahmina, a good number of educated youngsters have turned the wheel of fortune up. All of them are not necessarily employees of the Postal Department.
