Postal dept exceeded target revenue by Tk 230m in FY16
Bangladesh Postal Department has exceeded their target earning as revenue in FY16, said State Minister for Post and Telecommunications Tarana Halim on Saturday.
"The earning was Tk 230 million higher than that of the target," she said.
Tarana said it while replying to a tabled starred question from opposition bench member M Shawkat Chowdhury of Nilphamari-4 at the parliament, reports BSS.
Tarana also informed the House that the department earned Tk 3.01 billion against the target of Tk 2.78 billion.
She expects the postal department to earn higher revenue against its target in the current financial year as the government introduced new services for overcoming deficit of the department.
Tarana said the government has introduced modern technology based value added service which would help the postal department to become a profitable organisation soon.
Besides, government’s various initiatives would make the postal department a time-befitting and profitable organisation, she said.
