With this, the facility to transfer money will start at 400 chosen post offices across the State in the first phase. It will be gradually extended to all 1,500 post offices across the State, Chief Post Master—Karnataka Circle M S Ramanujan said.

            M S Ramanujan said the service would be of great help to migrant population, who, otherwise, have to rely on other modes of money transfer. It will also benefit students who study away from their home towns, he added.
