In a statement today, Pos Malaysia said the tariff increase was to adjust the salary structure of the postmen and counter clerks, to be at least at par with the level obtained by government servants.
"The restructuring of the salaries will be a positive morale boost for the operations staff, improving their productivity and commitment towards providing better quality of service," he said.
Domestic postal tariff for standard mail of up to 20 gram (gm) will be at 60 sen, while those above 20 gm to 50 gm will be priced at 70 sen.
Periodical charges will start from 50 sen (up to 20 gm) to 90 sen (above 100 gm - 250 gm).
For parcel of up to two kg, RM7 will be charged.
