Reflecting on the findings of a task force report on leveraging the post offices network, the prime minister said that post offices in rural India could be used to deliver services and important government information to individual households.

Following discussions on multiple aspects of the report in a meeting attended by Minister for Communications and Information Technology Ravi Shankar Prasad and task force chairman TSR Subramanian, Modi called for a detailed examination of the recommendations in the report within a short time to initiate necessary follow-up actions, said an official release.
