  1. Problem with India Post has been that it has not matched the courier service from the private sector in terms of prices and service. Though courier services are catering to cities and town only but it is a major chunk of business. No doubt in rural areas the postal department is doing a commendable job.

    Small savings is one main area where post offices also have done a good job. This should be strengthened more and may be they should function more in terms of banks. This will be much beneficial in rural areas. More tax wavers should be offered people offering for investing in postal banks.
