People can now use this facility to send kolu dolls to their friends, or relatives living in India or abroad.
The post office first started offering this service last year.
Dolls weighing up to 35 kilos can be transported through this facility, at subsidised rates.
Says a staff from the marketing department of the post office, “People just have to bring dolls. We will arrange for packing it in carton boxes after wrapping them in bubble covers and thermocol.”
He says that the sender has to bring their Aadhaar card for address proof.
One can opt to transport their dolls via three modes – ordinary parcel, registered parcel, and speed post. “A tracking facility will be provided for registered parcel and speed post.”
The official says that it will take an average of 2 to 3 days for delivering domestic parcels. For International parcels it will take a minimum of 7 to 10 days depending on the availability of flights, he says
Price for domestic registered parcels starts from Rs 36. The service is offered between 10 am and 4 pm here. Open all days except Sundays. For details contact the post office. Ph: 24642805 or 7015091298.
