With its reinvented face where Pakistan Post seems to be accepting its role as a black hole for mail, the department has also launched some services, which are actually interesting because of their local relevance.
Collection of Utility Bills at Doorsteps
Maybe this is old but its the first I had heard of it — now you can have your postman pick up your bill payments from your home.
This might be a small dent on the “electronic bill payment” service vendors like Inov8 and Orion who also solve the problem of “having to stand in line at the bank”.
Offline Email (“Paper Email Service”?)
Now you can send emails to your loved ones even to the most “disconnected” areas of Pakistan.
Here’s how it works:
1- You send an email to an email address on Pakistan Post
2- Pakistan Post office prints out the email and sends it out as a letter (snail-mail) to the offline person.
Kindof nice? Too bad India thought of it first.
