India Post is undergoing a major image makeover. The GPO at Clock Tower has recently set up two brand new and very useful facilities for the public. The first is a ‘Parcel Packaging Centre’ which offers complete parcel packaging solutions right from cartons of varying sizes (up to 35 Kg volumetric weight) to professional tamper-proof packaging with BOPP tape and PVC strapping & security seal. Gift wrapping services are also available in colorful glitzy gift wrappers.

Second, a ‘Post Shoppe’ has been set up which offers customers a delightful experience of buying general stationery items and India Post branded envelopes of higher sizes. The Post Shoppe is a novel concept aimed at keeping an assortment of products related with Postal business. The Post Shoppe sells NBT books which are economically priced and are very useful knowledge- building books. The Post Shoppe will very soon sell books of Publications Division, GOI which publishes a variety of informative books such as gazetteer, government statistics, books such as Aaj Kal, Yojana, Kurukshetra etc for competitive exams. It will also sell Rozgar Samachar. The Post Shoppe also keeps souvenirs and gift items. One of the unique gifts is ‘Rashi’ ceramic mugs with the mool mantra of each Rashi. Astrologically conscious buyers may buy the mug and chant the mantra also.

The Mussorrie Post Office is also in for a makeover. TRIFED has already opened a sales outlet where tribal handicraft items are sold. The Mussorie PO too will soon have its own Post Shoppe, Parcel Packaging Centre and guess what…. a Coffee Shop!

India Post is truly being inventive!
