India 🇮🇳

I know… that’s the equivalent of £0.12 per card. Here in the UK, it is 15x more expensive at £1.85 per card :open_mouth:… I shall send lots of cards next time I visit India :+1:

So, I want to send my postcards inside an envelope(like pictured). So I think that this will now be considered to be a letter instead of a postcard?

What will be the postage charges? According to this link, it should be Rs 20(for 20gms) + the Air surcharge(maximum Rs 9). So the total will be Rs 29 at the highest end.


So, if I put stamps of Rs 30, it should reach the destination… Right?

Yes, 30 rupees postage is enough for an envelope weighing 20gms or less. If you want to send a postcard without an envelope, you can find the rates in this link:

Have cards been making it to China these days? I have four expired cards to China. I see that the people I have sent the cards to have not received cards in a long time, (month plus) so maybe the issue is on the China end. I saw in the postal monitor that India is only sending sea mail to China, but these cards were sent long before that. I send from several different post offices in Mumbai, including the GPO, so I don’t think I am having a local issue.

Thanks much :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Hey! Can i know whats the procedure of sending postcards. When i went to post office, they asked me to put the postcard in an envelope and stick the stamp worth of Rs. 40. Is it a new change in postage??

@nihal1289 You can send the postcard as is, no need to put it in an envelope. ₹15 postage is enough to send to any international destination via airmail.

Can anybody please confirm where we can get best postal stamps in Delhi , INDIA.

The best place would be visit a Philatelic Bureau. As far as I know there are a couple of Philatelic Bureaus in Delhi located in Delhi GPO, Delhi HPO, Sansad Marg HPO, and Krishna Nagar HPO.
