“We made preparations for PTTBank, opened the signs, we were mosmorr. A cartoon in one of the journalists one day later. We put this building in the bottom of the bank has put the picture, ‘PTTBank established’ he makes fun of us. We started the same day and started this service. Good thing we started. What has become of today, when the days of the PTT will be discussed, whether it will be dead, hot, or damaged. The point that comes today is very striking. He works with 225 institutions. 311 pens are doing different transactions and they serve the citizen in 4 thousand 516 points. There are other organizations that do this job, and they do it. The new structure of the PTT has been adapted accordingly. He will be able to make more independent decisions. “
Yıldırım stated that the PTT will have real competitive conditions as it is AŞ and said that the PTT has earned 10 pounds in terms of the activities it has done and that the remaining 71 provinces serve in the absence of making money.
“We left skewed in the middle”
Yildirim, striking that they are working in the place where the private sector earns money and serving in the place where they are damaged through the PTT, said:
“We lifted this skewed structure. With the new structure, the PTT companies will all work the same way. The harming places Hakkari, Iğdır, Batman, Erzincan, we will meet from the universal service fund of damages arising from the service brought about here. In other words, we have brought the system that we made in the telecom sector before. We have included the PTT regulatory body in the BTK, and we have changed the legality accordingly. If the PTT is going to do a public service, it will absolutely get it from the universal service fund. If there is another organization, there will also be a competition. If anyone gives the best terms, we will make it to him and we will give the difference to the establishment. Thus, there will be no weakness in service, no problem in quality. At the same time, organizations that have seen this service in the whole market will carry the same conditions. That’s why we did PTT’s work. “
“Maybe there will be 4 or so employees”
Yıldırım reminded that the PTT has been criticized too much in the process of being an AŞ, “We have also mentioned in the legal discussions that these are not all of them. It is well understood that it is not the case today either. Today, the PTT will probably get close to 4 new employees. It will create a new employment area and will continue to strengthen its activities. “
“You can not have a chance to live if you can not read the changing world and update yourself according to it” Yıldırım said that PTT has continuously developed and changed for the last 10 years and that PTT, which has 2,400 transactions, has become 27 million transactions today.
