Out of order weight machines at post office irk citizens


Citizens are being overcharged on account of parcel and other fees at all the post offices in Rawalpindi city being computerised weight machines dysfunctional due to negligence of postal services department. Computerized weight machines are installed in the post offices located at Murree Brori, Gharib Abad, Gawalmandi, Fizaya colony, Kutchery, high court, Benazir airport, Bahria town, Jhanda Chichi, Dhok Kala Khan, College road, Banni, Pir Wadhai, Dhamial Camp, Moregah, Dhok Khabba, Chaklala, Pindora, Westridge, Urdu Bazar, Bakra Mandi, Chohar Harpal, Dheri Hassan Abad, Dhok Chaudhrian, Dhok Kala Khan, EME college, Ratta Amral, Baboo Mohalla, Lalkurti, Muslim town, Raja town, Amar Pura, Asghar Mal, Race course, Delhi Dawakahana, Satellite town, Momin Pura, Urdu Bazar, F-Block, Faizabad, Khiaban-e-Sirsyed Teli Mohalla, Railway station and other areas. But most of these machines have gone out of order and back up charging is not working at all. The stamp vendors have charging the citizens under guess work doctrine and this way the citizens have been pushed to receiving end being overcharged. These machines are dysfunctional since the last six months but the high ups of postal services department are found least concerned towards this matter. The citizens have demanded immediate steps for repairing of these machines to bring them to working condition.
