How can I send a letter or a postcard from India?
You might think it would be easier to send this postcard or letter to their relatives at home now that you have the appropriate seals. But when it comes to sending mail from India, there are two options: the way most of us are used to, and the way in India.
Option 1 Place a label and stick it in the bin alias the wrong way
Disadvantages: prone flight. without canceling the stamps are usually torn envelopes and postcards launched by unsuspecting tourists in boxes collection or left at postal outlets. Without a seal, and no way to contact you while in India, your mail will eventually find their way into the trash.
Option 2 A good seal after, walk your mail in a post office, to physically deliver each item to the employee and ask each stamp will be canceled by the hands of the employee.
Pro: 99% chance that your mail is delivered to its final destination
Against: Travelers will find an open post office and wait in line.
Tip: For those traveling by car and chauffeur service, ask your driver to pick up your mail at the post office. Drivers often spend hours waiting for their clients when they visit a local landmark. This is a welcome distraction for the driver to pass the time. Remember that rewards you with a separate or the tip of your final salary. In addition, RS 50-100 ports will be appreciated.
