You can read about them here; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Postal_Orders_of_India .

There's no mention of them up on http://www.indiapost.gov.in ,but they are mentioned here; http://www.indianarmy.gov.in/aps/indian-postal-order.html .

The Indian Army have issued their own postal orders,which are called Field Postal Orders,which come in denominations from 2,000 Rupees to 20,000 Rupees.Unfortunately,they are pretty expensive.You can read about them here; http://www.indianarmy.gov.in/aps/field-postal-order.html .

Eventually,I will be uploading some photos of the 3 Indian postal orders that Rony sent to me all the way from Silchar,Assam at the end of October last year.

It's a shame that I haven't got any contacts that could get me a 2,000 Rupees Field Postal Order to help me fill a gap in my postal order collection.
