Additional postal service will be gradually phased out: Minister Sharma

Kathmandu, May 8: Minister for Communications and Information Technology, Rekha Sharma, has said that the Additional Postal Services will be gradually phased out. 

In a meeting of the House of Representatives, the Education, Health and Information Technology Committee today, the government Spokesperson said the announcement to withdraw the additional postal services in the budget speech for the current fiscal will be implemented gradually.  

The quota in such services will be scrapped with the retirements of employees and this policy was pursued following a meeting among various trade unions in the service, Finance Ministry, and the Prime Minister. 

 As per the revised regulations (fifth amendment-2080 BS) regarding the additional postal services, employees will have to go for a compulsory retirement with the completion of 58 years of age. The positions that are already lying vacant shall be automatically removed with the commencement of the rules, she said. 

As the Minister said, with the development of a paperless era, the relevancy of postal services has been almost over.  The postal service is in use just for the exchange of official documents.  (RSS)
