AGARTALA, July 12 - As part of Digital India initiative, Union Minister for Communication and Technology Ravi Shankar Prasad opened Core Banking Services at Agartala Head Post Office here on Sunday.

With the dedication of Core Banking Service, people would be able to send �money order� to any destination in the country within two minutes, he said soon after dedicating the service at a city-based hotel here.

Asserting that GPOs are most valuable asset, Prasad said steps are being taken to improve the postal services across the country by using technology. �With the power of technology, we can bring a massive change even in the postal services. E-ticketing facility will also be available to all GPOs in the days to come�, he said.

At present 40 per cent railway ticket and 80 per cent air ticket are being booked by e-ticketing, he said, adding that GPOs could play a vital role in achieving success in Digital India launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

�ATMs will be installed at Agartala Head Post Office to improve delivery system and Tripura will have FM Channel very shortly�, he announced.

Besides, a post shoppe was also opened at Agartala HPO which will serve as a one-stop-shop where customers can procure stationary items like envelopes, glue, packaging materials, etc., as well as customised parcels for booking.

People can also browse through philatelic items and collections like bags and mugs. �My Stamp� counter where personalised stamps can be made has also been opened and franking services are also available.

Prasad also laid foundation stone for Dimapur Mukhya Dak Ghar.

Tripura Communication Minister Tapan Chakraborty, who was present in the programme, however, pointed out some problems faced by Sub Post Offices and Branch Post Offices. �Shutters of seven Sub Post Offices have been down in the State resulting in people being deprived of post services. Around 50 per cent of posts in different post offices are lying vacant�, he said.
