Prasad has directed the Postal Department to utilise e-commerce platform and make arrangement for providing pure Gangajal from Haridwar, Rishikesh to the people.

“They have assured that they will take pro-active steps to address cultural needs,” the minister said.

He further added that by the end of this year all postmen in urban centres will be given smartphones, and handheld devices will be provided to postmen in 1.3 lakh rural post offices by March 2017.

“If postman can deliver, mobile phones, sarees, jewellery, apparels then why not Ganga water,” Mr Prasad asked.



 

Well, this won’t be first time for the Indian post. Last year, holy water from Godavari was sold during the auspicious Pushkaram period from July 14 to 25.

 

The bottles, named as Godjal, were priced at Rs 20 each and contained 500 ml of water.
