DoP will soon set up enrollment centres in State, says official
The Department of Posts (DoP) is going to set up 585 Aadhaar enrolment centres in Andhra Pradesh, and people can get their Aadhaar identities updated at 1,595 post offices.
It is also in the process of opening 24 India Post Payments Bank branches, including one at the Buckinghampet Post Office in Vijayawada, said Chief Postmaster General (CPMG-A.P. Circle) K. Balasubramanian.
Addressing the media here on Friday, Mr. Balasubramanian said all the customers of DoP have to link their accounts with Aadhaar and mobile phone numbers by December 31, 2017, as per the Government of India instructions. Customers not complying with the requirement by that date would have their accounts rendered inoperative, subject to the Supreme Court’s judgment in the case.
As far as the payments banks are concerned, they will extend all services like a commercial bank, except lending and issuing credit cards.
Passport Seva Kendras
Mr. Balasubramanian said the DoP was set to establish Passport Seva Kendras at seven Head Post Offices (HPOs), and three had already been opened in the HPOs at Kadapa, Kurnool, and Nellore.
The DoP is conducting walk-in interviews to recruit agents for Postal Life Insurance (PLI) and rural PLI from November 6 to 17 at the respective divisional offices.
