Post Offices in Karnataka to sell air/bus/train tickets

In a move that is going to generate enough revenue for India Post and give access to more people the availability of train/bus/air tickets, India Post has started Genie Ease-Ticket.

Essentially what it means is that all post offices in the state will now have a separate travel department wherein citizens can buy/book train, air or bus tickets to various destinations.

Within the next few months, rental cars, hotel bookings, tour package bookings will start. Surely the biggest advantage will be to people who have post offices close by. People who don't have access to internet or computers or have to walk long distances to meet travel agents will be the biggest beneficiary. More than 9000 locations will now have all these features in the next few months.

Undoubtedly, the plan is going to have an impact even at the national level and all states will have the same.

I feel these should be implemented in rural areas first. But I'm afraid these are going to get implemented in urban areas first, where people dont really need them.
