Postal charges to be raised from Jan 1

The government has decided to raise postal charges from January 1.

The decision was made at a meeting of the council of advisers chaired by the chief adviser, Fakhruddin Ahmed, at his office on Wednesday.

From January 1, Bangladesh Postal Department will sell a post card at Tk 1.50 instead of Tk 1 and envelop at Tk 3 instead of Tk 2.

Besides, an additional 20 per cent service charge will be added to the actual cost of all foreign mails. The meeting approved a proposal for the signing of an additional protocol between Bangladesh and Qatar to facilitate more manpower export to Qatar. One of the key objectives of signing the protocol is to upgrade a treaty to this effect signed in January 1988 between the two countries.

The additional protocol will be signed in Dhaka in the first week of next month during the visit of a high-level delegation led by the labour and social affairs minister of Qatar.
