Sending rakhi to brothers will be more convenient this time as the Mumbai Postal Region has decided to arrange special delivery on August 14 (Sunday) to ensure rakhi mails reach people on time.

Saturday being semi-closed holiday, followed by Sunday and August 15, which is again holiday for Independence Day, entire Mumbai City, Thane/Navi Mumbai, and major post offices of Palghar and Raigad districts have decided to arrange special delivery on Sunday (August 14) in order to ensure that  rakhi mail reaches to people well on time, assistant director, Mumbai Postal Region, V V Nayak, said in a statement on Saturday.

“All efforts are being made to ensure delivery of mail on the same day of receipt. Apart from normal mail, we are special mails like rakhi envelopes and there is an increase in the volume of e-commerce articles,” he said.

Mumbai Postal Region has a strong network of delivery staff across Mumbai city and neighbouring Thane, Palghar and Raigad districts, and thus by making such initiative, it has paved the way for lakhs of its customers by delivering rakhees on time, he added.
