The Registrar General’s Department (RGD) says as of tomorrow it will discontinue the delivery of certificates and packages through contracted couriers to customers in some Corporate Area and Portmore communities.



The RGD says the changes will affect all customers living in Portmore, Kingston 6, 7, 11, 12, 19, and 20.



According to the RGD, these also include:



Mona

Stony Hill

St Peters

Irish Town

Gordon Town

Red Hills

Mavis Bank

Dallas Castle

Lawrence Tavern

Brandon Hill

Golden Spring

Border

Three Miles

Trench Town

The RGD says currently, all customers are charged $100 as a partial recovery towards the delivery of certificates.



"As a result of the change, customers within the affected areas will no longer be required to pay the $100," said an RGD spokesperson in a release this afternoon.



Meanwhile, RGD's Chief Executive Officer, Deirdre English Gosse, says the decision will help to improve the quality of delivery service.



"Certificates/packages for the affected customers will now be disbursed at the Portmore, Kingston or Twickenham Park offices," English Gosse said.



"Customers should indicate to the Customer Service Representative, at the point of application, where they would prefer to collect their certificates/packages."
