That is the notice that I received after I had received a parcel from Amazon India. On checking back on some other orders, I found that this was the second time that a parcel had been delivered to me by India Posts.

I think that this is a remarkable innovation from a Government Department which had lost the parcel and speed post business to couriers. On investigating on the web for how this came about, I found this article which gives a detailed analysis of what is happening.

I am impressed.

  1. ours is carried by Hermes, “your handle partner along the delivery chain.”
    and not the much touted DHL paket service of the German post. I truly love watching the pictures of where the packet is now.

  2. oh my gosh.
    i can’t imagine those guys carrying parcels like that for miles on a bicycle!
    our postal service is having all kinds of financial difficulties and has for years. they keep threatening to disband it and have it change to totally free enterprise… which i think would be a real nightmare.

    1. It is the threat of closing down the department because of its huge costs that this innovation has taken place here and I am quite impressed. India needs its postal service because of its villages.

  3. our postal service has had a fair share of issues, including the many courier companies operating for all kinds of reasons. postal service delivery of letters have so declined, especially since on-line e-invoices etc that in the Auckland region there are only about 2-3 day deliveries made to your letter box…probably happening country wide as well

    some the package deliveries are very odd as well…from postal service but also the courier companies…
