The Post Office

A sign that reads 'post office' in English and in Hindi

Big cities have more than one post office while smaller towns will have only one. The hours are more or less the same as those of the bank. Within the post office, transactions are divided among a variety of counters. One should always pay attention to the price charged. Mail delivery is generally slow and unreliable; sometimes mail arrives and sometimes it does not. Courier services for both letters and packages are available through private companies; they cost more, but in turn, they are more reliable.
