Money exchange work freezes in post offices in Himachal Pradesh

Dear Comrades,

DHARAMSHALA: The hill station hosting maximum numbers of foreign tourists is facing a crisis in the money exchange job these days, causing discomfort to local and foreign tourists. The post offices running the counters of money transferring from foreign countries to India under the banner of the Western Union have frozen due to poor connectivity of the BSNL connection and the defected lease lines.

"I have been moving to and fro to the post office from the last three days as my relatives have sent some money on new year eve to me but I had to wait for hours but all in vain. Officials at the post offices told me that the lease lines are down and I have to wait, but despite waiting for lengthy hours nothing turned out positive" said Gopal Kumar, a local citizen.

When contacted, the officials of the post offices in Kangra and Dharamsala stated that they are unable to complete the transactions as the lines of the internet are too slow. They told that there are numbers of customers who are returning back from the counters over the non availability of this service.

"The lease lines are down we are unable to do any thing. There is nothing in our hands in Shimla and it would be restored from there only. It is the task of NIC people also" said Ramesh Chand, post master of Kangra.

The BSNL officials, however, have refused to comment on the issue stating that the work is in progress.
