Jakarta, July 24, 2019 – Based on Government Regulation No. 28 of 1986 concerning Procurement, Management and Sales of Seal Objects, PT Pos Indonesia (Persero) has been assigned by the Government as the only institution that manages and sells seal objects.
As a form of appreciation for Pos Indonesia to companies and partners who have purchased patches at the Post Office, both used as internal sealing companies and for sale to the public, Pos Indonesia held a 2019 Meterai Award. This appreciation is given in various categories based on purchase transactions and seal sales in the period January 2019 to April 2019.
Appreciation of the Retail Company category was given because in addition to the purchase of seals in large quantities also for the active role of the company to sell seals to the community so that people easily get the original seal from the outlets of the scattered retail companies.
For other companies, namely Health Services, Financing Services, Banking, Consultancy Services, Legal Services, and Transportation Services, appreciation is given in addition to the large number of seals purchases due to the high awareness of these companies to use seals in each transaction and awareness to use the original seal purchased at the Post Office.
Appreciation was also given to the Post Office and the Primary Tax Office with the highest sales growth and highest sales as an appreciation for the efforts developed to realize the community's awareness to pay off its duty obligations while raising public awareness to buy and use the original seals sold at the Post Office.
