It is completed to communicate the business information with village people receding in hamlets and villages located in remote areas in India. These villages are unaware of the Technology available now a day to get the information through electronic mail (e-mail) with the help of Internet. Few of the business people would have dealers in these corners and want to expand their business with these people, but the communication is the main hindrance even though telephone communication establishes the starting up the relation but for promoting the products have to sent their Product catalogue, Discount Schemes on Seasonal Sales, Advance Booking etc.
Availability of Private Courier Service Providers would not be available in every nook and corner of our country as it is cost effective for them to establish infrastructure where no customers are available. Hence we need to go for the alternative solution that Indian Postal Service, with this we can send our Documents and Parcels to the hamlets, and villages where we can't get such service from the Private Courier Service Providers.
Indeed, i was in a situation to sent the Book Scheme documents to all the distributors, most of them are located in village areas. There is no service of DTDC or Professional, hence i had to send through Indian Postal Service. But, the insisted me for the PIN Code of the villages. This this procedure helped me a lot to finish the work.
PIN Code is Mandatory
In most of the Private Courier Service Provider PIN Code is not mandatory as they can recognize with District name, but where as if we sent through Indian Post then it is must to provide the PIN Code of the shipment destination. Why they ask the PIN Code? The answer is for swift delivery and accuracy of the delivery of shipment. If you are consigning to a rural area it quite mandatory to provide the PIN Code otherwise they would not book. Even they book there is no guaranty to trace out the address exactly.
