Kazakhstan post has a long historic tradition. On 25 December 1954m the Administration of Commissioner of the USSR Ministry of Communication was transformed into the Ministry of Communication of the Kazakh Soviet Socialist Republic. Postal and electric means of communication were united into one industry called Communication, which industry was delegated under the jurisdiction of the new Ministry. There were 4,000 postal enterprises operating in Kazakhstan in the middle 60-s of the XX Century. They delivered the full spectrum of postal services to population. During that period, the national post was profitable and all revenues were invested into development of electric communication. The main part of incomes was raised from delivery of pensions and telephone and telegraph services. In March 1946, the Commissioner of the Popular Commissariat of Communication of USSR under Kazakh Soviet Socialist Republic Council of People's Commissars was renamed into Commissioner of the USST Ministry of Communication under the Council of Ministers of the Kazakh Soviet Socialist Republic. In 1950, there were 2,438 postal enterprises in Kazakhstan, including 2,038 in the rural areas.
