    India Post Partners With Infosys for Rural Systems Integration 
New Delhi - March 15, 2013: Infosys today announced that the company has been
selected by India Post to implement and manage a platform that will transform
its rural operations. With this new agreement, Infosys will facilitate India
Post's Rural Systems Integration (RSI) program. This initiative will increase
adoption of the department's services, and enhance the reach of postal services
to the country's rural population, streamlining the distribution of social
benefits. As part of an earlier agreement, Infosys is also partnering with India
Post to transform its financial services operations and end-user experience
under the Financial Services System Integration program. 
The two projects are part of the 'India Post 2012' modernization program that
aims to bring transparency, agility, flexibility and scalability to its business
operations. The programs will empower employees to deliver services more
efficiently to rural communities using the latest technology. They will also
position India Post as a key agent in the Government of India's inclusive growth
policies. 
Infosys will develop a Service Delivery Platform (SDP) that will leverage
Infosys solutions such as mConnect, TruSync and Finacle Inclusion. These will
serve as a foundation for the RSI program. The new SDP will allow more than
130,000 rural post offices to offer online services. Additionally it will
connect and manage more than 130,000 handheld devices used by rural postal
workers for distribution of social benefits under the National Rural Employment
Guarantee Act and process Electronic Money Orders. 
Speaking about this deal, India Post said, "We are very happy to partner with
Infosys on one of the largest transformational journeys India Post has ever
undertaken. We are confident that Infosys will help make the Rural Systems
Integration project a success." 
According to Mr. CN Raghupathi, VP and Head of India Business, "India Post has
been a key driver of the country's socio-economic development for over 150
years. This partnership will give us the opportunity to promote inclusive growth
by helping to deliver services more efficiently to all citizens. We will use our
proven technology leadership and innovation capabilities to build a platform
that will transform India Post and enhance its reach significantly."
