Postal Department has made elaborate arrangements for booking and delivery of Rakhis and Rakhi gifts through network of post offices in Jammu and Kashmir. This was stated by Chief Post Master General Jammu and Kashmir John Samuel.

This provides convenience to the people whereby they can buy the Rakhis at the Post office and send them through post. This is a new initiative taken by Jammu and Kashmir circle, said Samuel
