Chandigarh: July 31, 2013 : In order to ensure fast and safe delivery of Rakhis, India Post has designed water resistant and attractive Rakhi envelopes to enable every sister to express her feelings and sentiments of love for her brothers in a very special way.
These specially designed Rakhi envelopes, which are available in attractive designs and have an elegant surface finish, are resistant to water and wear & tear for providing higher protection to the Rakhi placed inside, especially from rain. The envelopes also have a special peel for easy seal.
The envelopes are available at all the Post Offices In Punjab and UT Chandigarh. The cost of the envelope is Rupees Seven apart from the normal postage charges.
Also, in order to ensure speedy delivery of Rakhi envelopes, India Post has made special arrangements for collection of the envelopes through special Letter Boxes and through special Collection Boxes at important Head Post Offices. Special and exclusive arrangements for sorting and transmission of Rakhi envelopes have also been made in the mail sorting offices.
The Postal department has also requested the people to post their Rakhi envelopes as soon as possible to avoid last minute rush, which causes transmission jam due to heavy mail at the last minute. We assure safe, secure and prompt conveyance of love and affection of the sisters to their brothers.
