This is with reference to "India Post needs a new stamp" (

Business Line

, October 21). The author has not examined the viability of "business mail post" and "bill mail post." In the case of the former, India Post has reduced tariff to Rs 3 per letter. The reduction of tariff was unnecessary as the couriers charge Rs 5 for local mail. What has been overlooked is the extension of credit facilities to corporates for bulk mailing.
