"India Post Railway Parcel Service" shall be available within Maharashtra State w.e.f. 15/05/2020.

In current situation of COVID-19 lockdown, individuals and commercial establishments are finding it difficult to move their large size consignments containing the essential and other items. Speed Post service is being widely used by a large number of public for sending their parcels. However, for large size consignments, the customers find it difficult to transport these items to the Post offices for booking. Keeping in view the special parcel trains being operated by the Central Railway in Maharashtra, it has been decided to synergise the capabilities of India Post and Indian Railways within Maharashtra State by offering India Post Railway Parcel Service w.e.f. 15/05/2020.

To begin with, India Post Railway Parcel Service shall be available between Mumbai, Pune and Nagpur stations, to be extended to other stations later. India Post shall pick up the consignments from the premises of the customers and deliver to the consignee at destination through special parcel trains being operated by the Central Railway and Postal Mail Motor Service.

As a trial run, the consignment picked up from Hingana in Nagpur on 09.05.2020
was transported through India Post Railway Parcel Service and reached destination at
Mumbai on 10.05.2020. Thus the first and last mile of the journey will be covered by
India Post and transported between the origin and destination station through Railways.
This service enables the customers to avail transportation of the consignments at
economical rate.

For more details, customers may get in touch with the Nodal officers of respective
cities. The contact details of the said nodal officers is available on
