In India, the post is a state-operated enterprise. It came into being in 1854, founded by the British colonial power. India post provided a wide range of postal services since the first years of its existence. Nowadays the postal operator delivers mail, carries out money transfers, offers money-saving schemes, provides retail services, social payments, like pensions, allows paying bills via e-payment systems. The Indian postal network is considered to be among the widest ones.
India Post cooperates with the international express mail service (EMS). It offers a service dubbed International Speed Post that provides extra-speed delivery of documents and merchandise all over the world. The items (packages up to 35 kg of weight) shipped as part of this service are subject to customs services, but this doesn’t delay them. The sendings are delivered directly to the recipient.
Unlike other postal operators, India post provides insurance services. It’s a welfare program for the workers of the postal and telegraph companies. Established in 1884, it’s the oldest life insurance system in the country.
The Indian post also provides money transfers as part of national and international postal services. India Post partners with foreign e-commerce companies to deliver prepaid parcels and Cash On Delivery (COD) sendings.
