The relationships between different social institutions vis-à-vis the social structure of the local community is the main focus of the research. The research topic of the changing role of post office in the socio-economic development of Pakistan is a thought provoking subject.

The relationships between different social institutions vis-à-vis the social structure of the local community carry considerable weight as far as its academic contribution in the development process envisaged in ‘Economic Anthropology’ is concerned.
