Bengaluru: As many as 56 Head Post Offices (HO) across Karnataka, including seven in Bengaluru, will now accept Quick Response (QR) code payment for all transactions. Only cash or digital payments through the India Post Payment Bank were allowed until now.
The digital change is part of an all-India rollout that will see nearly 800 HOs accept the payment method.
With the QR system becoming a common means of payment, the general public has been facing issues on a daily basis when they arrive at post offices and are advised to bring cash. However, due to the lack of purchase of point-of-sale machines, debit and credit cards will still not be accepted for transactions.
