Digital Bangladesh Post office must be digitized: Mustafa Jabbar

Posts and Telecommunication Minister Mustafa Jabbar said that Bangladesh has become digital, so the post office must also be digitalised.
Pointing out that the days of post are not over but are increasing, he said, the post office has now become a reliable institution for digital commerce. The minister said that the road design of ‘post office digitization’ is being completed to establish a postal system suitable for the digital age.
Mustafa Jabbar said these things while inspecting the construction work of the main post office under construction at Gazipur district headquarters on Thursday.
Postmaster General Farid Ahmed, Gazipur ADC (General) Nasreen Parveen and related officials of the Department of Posts were present at the time. This post office building with modern facilities is being constructed at a cost of 7.5 million taka.
The minister said, ‘Apart from digitizing the postal system, we have started digitizing the post office by providing digital skills to the 45,000 officials working in it. As a result, the basis of digitization has been created in production-oriented activities.
At this time, he said, through the implementation of this master plan made with the officials of the postal department and related experts, the postal service will soon be improved to the desired level.
Mentioning the importance of digitizing the post office as a supporting institution of digital commerce, the minister said, ‘Our biggest challenge was to take the distressed postal service to a better position as the era of letters is over. We have already done that.’
Pointing out that there is no other organization in the country that has the vast infrastructure and manpower of the post office nationwide, the minister said that starting from frozen food, the post office has no alternative to deliver daily necessities to the customers in remote and inaccessible areas.
Highlighting the contribution of the postal service in delivering medical equipment to farmers during the Corona period, the minister said that the post office was not closed even for a day under the emergency service.
Mostafa Jabbar mentioned the various initiatives taken by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for the development of the postal system and said, ‘We have started the Digital Service Design Lab (DSDL) program to make the post office suitable for the digital age.’
He said, ‘Currently, people of the country talk to their loved ones abroad on SMS, mail, Viber, WhatsApp, IMO. These were technical challenges for us. We have acquired the ability to meet the challenges of technology.’
Already 14 shorting centers are being constructed and digitized. At the same time, the minister mentioned that chilling vans will be introduced in railway chilling coaches and other postal vehicles.
