Postman now to deliver fruit packets..

The Indian Postman is now more busy with this new initiative of the North East India's initiative. Actually the regional postal department has undertaken the initiative to deliver fruit packs which will provide market to the farmers of the region.

The initiative has mainly been taken thinking that people would now also think of giving fruits as gifts in place of cards, gifts etc. which will provide market to farmers as well as a unique and new tradtion of gifting fruits, (healthy for body).

"This is the new age postal department, diversifying into marketing organic agro-based products here and encouraging friends and family with such produces. The initiative, 'Retail-pose', also aims to encourage people to wish their family and friends with organic agro-based products instead of cards and letters," Chief Post Master General of North East M Iawphniaw said.

They are also having talks with cold storage departments to store perishable goods. As of now, the post office here is selling and delivering kiwi fruit, an indigenous produce of New Zealand, cultivated in Arunachal Pradesh. The fruit is being delivered in Meghalaya and other parts of the country by the postal department.
