  1. It is a wise step to bring back people to use India Post services.
    Old timers know how Post office had Night air service which took off from all 4 metros and exchanged post packets after landing in Nagpur. This ensured delivery of letters next day in all metros.

  2. That is the price you pay for the convenience and speed. Instead you would have paid dearly for an express courier.
