E M S Speed Post-A Premium Service of India Post

By  Anil Kr Pujara

E M S—Speed Post is premium service of OUR GREAT INDIA POST. Great in the sense that to a great extent it ensures delivery of articles. Above that, the most comfortable feature of this so called Express Mail Service is that the articles booked under this service can be tracked most of the time. This premium service was started in the year1986 in the month of August.

\"\" It completed 25 years of its existence in August 2011.To commemorate this day, Gujarat Circle issued a special cover on 24th August 2011. The design of the Special Cover was very good n matching with the features n conveying the very motto with which this service was started. The tall claim made by India Post that it ensures time bound delivery of the articles booked under this service is seldom experienced but the second claim that delivery is ensured has passed the test of time which has been experienced by most of the customers of India Post. In fact, this was an occasion which called for the release of Special Commemorative stamp. But OUR GREAT INDIA POST did not even think fit to issue any material worth Philatelic value. Only Gujarat Circle issued this cover. Probably the Babudom of India Post was busy in making preparations/ finalizing release of another stamp on some Personality well known in some remote small corner of  this Great Country.

    Informative. One can only lament for India Post not benefiting from the opportunity while Gujarat circle released a special cover. Its a loss for the collectors because special covers issued by different circles do not reach most collectors who have to remain contented with the supply from philatelic bureaus.
