However, I noticed that illiterate Depositors were being asked to get witness signature or endorsement by the Postman. I have told the SPM and the PA that this would amount to harassment of the Payees. What is needed is identification of the payee, which could be done by means of any identity like Aadhar. The PA only needs to indicate on the withdrawal slip that identification has been verified through Aadhar. These instructions may be given to all Post Offices in the Region.
