Postal Stamp Cost To Go Up
The cost of postage stamps is to be increased soon, Secretary to the Ministry of Posts, Hemasiri Fernando said.
Fernando told The Sunday Leader that Cabinet approval has been sought to increase the cost of postage stamps.
He said that the increase in the cost was required as the Postal Department was unable to meet administration and distribution costs. Fernando said that a committee headed by Additional Ministry Secretary Vinitha Kaluarachi will decide on the increase in the postage stamp prices.
He said that the Ministry has already approved the increase of international postage stamp rates and had also suspended the use of telegrams. (ISA)
