The Director General of the Office for Supervision of Postal Services and Counter Offices of the Government in the Regulatory Authority for Radiocommunications, stating that the tariffs for adequate services are not known, announced the prohibition of providing adequate services in the counter offices.
“The lack of tariffs for these services, the lack of oversight of revenue sharing and transactions related to adequate services are among the reasons for the ban,” Shahram Hayshad said of the ban on providing adequate services at counters.
He also said in another part of his explanation: “Due to the provision of services on the Internet, in the event of violations and complaints from customers, the regulator can not handle violations.
Hyshad stressed the prohibition of activities outside this framework, emphasizing that government counter offices are required to provide only the certified services of the executive bodies, which is notified by the regulator.
What happens at the counter offices?
Government service counter, public and non-public sector, or counter office, is the office that the government has set up to provide electronic services to the people across the country. All government agencies are required to provide their electronic services through these offices.
These offices are run by the private sector. One of the reasons for establishing these offices is to prevent parallelism of government agencies and move towards e-government.
Now the ban has been introduced by the regulator in a situation that is more like clearing the issue. A significant number of citizens who do not have access to the Internet or villagers have to go to these counters to do some Internet work.
This will reduce accessibility in the event of a ban on doing café-related activities in these centers, and will also increase the possibility of doing so in informal centers.
Given the emphasis on infrastructure, it remains to be seen what the role of low-income areas and citizens will be in this approach.
