India Post Revises Foreign Postage Rates
« on: December 18, 2015, 02:43:29 PM »
Effective from December 01, 2015, India Post has increased postage rates for all foreign bound letters. The official press release and gazette notification is here. Detailed explanation of revised postage rates is here.

I believe that postage rates mentioned above are for unregistered mail (which don't have a tracking code). Registered letters will be more expensive, currently they charge ₹50 extra for registration (If I remember it correctly).

Compared to other countries, our rates are still reasonable IMO...

Caution. The low-hanging fruits are still there maybe for a reason.

Australia Post will increase their rates on January 4, they are a rip off and the reason I don't trade coins anymore.

I think the rates were due for revision for quite sometime. Hopefully the extra revenue is utilized in uplifting the services in various post offices.
