Speedy action to streamline postal and telecom services - minister

Speedy action has to be taken to streamline postal and telecommunication services so as to avoid their downfall, Posts and Telecommunication Minister Jeewan Kumarathunaga said.

Remedial action should be taken promptly to save the postal service from a natural death while ensuring a trusted service to the public.

The postal service have to go with the the latest technology, which have been widely used in the post and telecommunication sector in the world, Minister Kumaratunga said.

The minister was addressing staffers leaving for an Indian training at the ministry auditorium yesterday. Representing all divisions of the postal department, 25 staffers have been selected for the five day Indian study tour.

The participants will be able to obtain first hand experience in the Indian postal service, which is believed to be more efficient and effective in the region.

Minister Kumarathunga further said the ministry has to be converted into people-friendly and profit earning institution. The exposure and experiences gained from the Indian tour can be utilised for the progress of the postal service. Therefore, ideas and positive criticisms of the participants will be highly accepted, the minister said.

"The Postal Department will be subjected to radical changes so as to convert it into a profitable venture within a short period. Otherwise no one can protect the Postal Department from dilapidation", the minister noted.

The Postal Department introduced five new services aiming to meet the present day requirements of customers to create a people friendly postal service. Under this, customers will be able to get varied services from post offices, he added.

At the final stage all main post offices and sub post offices will be linked to the network using around 1,200 computers. Bill payment activities, internet related facilities such as sending and receiving E-mails, e-buying, e-channelling, browsing internet are among the services.
