India Post has suspended Surface Mail
service to following nine countries until further notice:
1. Brunei; 2. Indonesia; 3. Kuwait; 4. Malaysia; 5. Myanmar; 6. New Zealand; 7. Philippines; 8. Thailand; 9. Vietnam
The reason for suspension is unknown. Note that most of the letters these days are shipped via air-mail, only very heavy parcels are shipped via surface mail. So the decision is unlikely to cause any problems for coin collectors; but wanted to let everyone know about it.
