Industry leaders keen to tie up with India PostJuly 4th, 2011 - 9:38 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, July 4 (IANS) Banking, telecom, logistics, IT companies and industry associations Monday expressed a desire to tie up with India Post to sell their products.
While public sector banks discussed retailing of loan products, mutual funds and other new age financial products, the logistics sector sought to provide services to semi-urban and rural areas for consumers.
Central government ministries and state governments suggested that post offices be used to deliver social security schemes like the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme.
“This will help the department of posts to develop the future business model and its integration with the technological architecture of India,”
Communications Minister Kapil Sibal said.
India Post 2012 Project aims at transforming department of posts into a technology enabled, self reliant market leader.
