Well, the new government is trying to bring the change in the country and is trying to revive the national institutions for the betterment of the people. In this regard, the steps have been taken to restore the Pakistan Post which most of the people have forgotten or think that it’s not of any use. People are spending more money on the private courier services because they don’t have trust in Pakistan post and its services as they don’t think its secure and fast.
Now Pakistan post will deliver your mails and items within 12 hours or same day. Yes, we are talking about Pakistan post! Well if you will send your letter or article before 1 PM, it will reach the same day Before 12 am. The service will be started in 25 cities at first and then will expand to the other cities of the country.
The service has already started for Islamabad and Rawalpindi. Max 20 kg consignment can be booked, and that first 500 gram will be charged as Rs.150/- and for every additional 500 gram Rs. 50/- will be charged. Special care will be taken of commercial consignments. There will be a special desk in the post office for these services in addition to it upon delivery of the shipment you will get SMS.
In addition to it, Pakistan post is also starting electronic money transfers EMO electronic money order in 80 cities initially and then it will be expanded further. Maximum of 50000/- can be sent and will be delivered within one day.
