The postal department had always played a big role in connecting people from one place to the other. However, with the advent of the internet, things changed a lot and the way the postal department had played the role earlier seemed to have less usage. Considering the less usage of postal services, the department has always kept its presence felt in society. They have been celebrating and observing different events in the city to make their presence felt.
Recently, during the eve of The World Post Day, the city postal department had witnessed a National Postal Week in Nagpur. It was organized by Universal Postal Union’s which has been in place since 1874. The week is currently celebrated in the city from 9th October 2019 every year and would last till 15th October.
