Infosys has partnered India Post for developing a service delivery platform that will allow more than 1.30 lakh rural post offices to offer online services.

The platform will also connect and manage more than 1.30 lakh handheld devices used by rural postal workers for distribution of social benefits under the National Rural Employment Guarantee Act and process Electronic Money Orders, Infosys said in a statement. With this agreement, Infosys will facilitate India Post’s Rural Systems Integration programme, which will increase adoption of the department’s services and enhance the reach of postal services to the country’s rural population.
