Why pay hefty charges to private courier services when the government based India Post does such a good job. Very good service at the counter, super cheap charges. Their complaint resolution is also super professional / fast. However the one disadvantage that I see is the tracking website of India Post is very slow in getting updated, for which I have a workaround for currently the USA.
I have been sending registered post’s to the USA and they have been reaching on time and safe.
Tracking postal mails sent via India post - http://www.indiapost.gov.in/tracking.aspx
Even after 30 days sometime the tracking will show as in progress but in reality they have reached the destination.
Work around – go to https://www.usps.com/ and enter the registered post tracking number and voila you can see the latest update on details of your registered postal mail.

Overall I am starting to love government offices and their services. Is it just me ?
