India Post Annual Report 2020-21 (Post Office)

The Department of Posts, with its network of 1,56,721 Post Offices, is the largest postal network in the world. The origin of this vast postal network can be traced back to the year 1727, when the first Post Office was set up in Kolkata. Subsequently, General Post Offices (GPOs) were set up in the then three Presidencies towns of Kolkata in 1774, Chennai in 1786, and Mumbai in 1793. The Indian Post Office Act of 1837 was enacted to bring about uniformity in postal operations. 


This Act was followed by the more comprehensive Indian Post Office Act of 1854 which laid the foundation of modern-day postal system in the country. In the same year, Railway Mail Service was introduced and the Sea Mail Service started from India to Great Britain and China. The Indian Post Office Act of 1898 further strengthened the postal system in the country.

In 1852, the first ever-adhesive postage stamp in Asia was issued in Sindh (Scinde) province. These stamps subsequently became famous as the Scinde Dawks. These stamps were in circulation up to June 1866. On 18th February,1911, the world’s first airmail flight took off from Allahabad to Naini. It traversed a distance of 18 kilometers (approx.) across the river Ganges. The first postage stamp valid across the country was issued on 1st October,1854 which provided an affordable and uniform rate of postage based on weight. Since then, 
the Department of Posts has continued to play an important role in the socio-economic development of the nation by connecting the remotest corners of 
the country.

While the core activity of the Department is processing, transmission and delivery of mail and money remittance across the country, there are also a diverse range of other services undertaken by the Department for more than a century, which include banking and insurance services. Ever since the launch of Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS) on 2nd February 2006, the Department has also undertaken the disbursal of the benefits under various social security schemes launched by the 
central and state governments, even in remote rural and inaccessible areas in the country. To meet the challenges of the new digital environment, the Department is continuously upgrading its services 
and diversifying into new areas. A major IT 
induction and modernization project is currently being implemented in the Department with focus on business process re-engineering and improving operational efficiency of the department.
