Hyderabad:All 3,545 post offices in the twin States will allow customers to pay for postal services using credit or debit cards within in one month, said Chief Post Master General, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana circle, B.V. Sudhakar.

He was speaking at the launch of cash point sales or swiping machine sales at General Post Office (GPO), here on Saturday.

A total of 345 MeeSeva services will be covered under the swipe project that is named ‘Turanth’.
