ISLAMABAD: Revenues for the state-owned Pakistan Post have gone by 110pc during the last year, the Minister for Communications Murad Saeed informed while speaking to the National Assembly on Wednesday.
“During the first year of the PTI government Pakistan Post’s revenue saw a 70pc increase and during the second year revenues have grown almost 110pc,” he said.
