The Postal Department of the country on Tuesday started using their vast transport network to deliver mango and other fruits produced by the farmers of Rajshahi and other areas to the doorsteps of the customers free of charge.

These fruits will be marketed through digital platforms while the profits will reach the farmers directly.

Posts and Telecommunications Minister Mustafa Jabbar inaugurated the delivery project in an event arranged by Rajshahi District Administration through teleconferencing at  Putia Upazila Conference Room.

Under the initiative, the Dhaka-bound postal transports from across the country will not charge any additional cost from the government to transport the fruits as well.

The minister noted that the project will eventually be launched in different parts of the country considering the demand and importance.
