New Delhi, Oct 10 (UNI) The Department of Posts on today said it has introduced Electronic Money Order (eMO), an electronic transmission of Money Order, for faster remittance of money to its customers.
Electronic Money Order (eMO) aims to provide more efficient and improved quality of service to customers, without any extra cost, an official statement said here.
The booking facilities of eMO will be available in a phased manner from post offices where wide area connectivity or broadband connectivity is available.
The connected post office will book money orders electronically for other connected post offices and for post offices in account with them, thereby doing away with physical movement of the Money Order forms.
It would be done using a different form with pre-defined message codes and would have tariff and limits of remittance similar to that of ordinary money order.
EMOs can be paid at all offices, including Branch Post Offices and the date of payment would be uploaded in the central server by connected post office.
However, the present service of ordinary domestic Money Order will also remain available as earlier.
Around 2,500 post offices all over the country have switched over to electronic transmission of money orders. The system will also reduce transmission of vouchers from one place to another and provide for centralised information system on the money order service, the statement said.
