Can't be true... our postal department NEVER does ANYTHING like that.
The entire system is corrupt right from the Peon till the Ministers. Everything is in open today with no single Govt Dept clean of these. Nothing to be surprised of.

I hope you know why I made the comment... it was meant for people in denial (or out of touch with ground realities).

Sad thing is that the state of private couriers also leave a lot of be desired for.  In a recent case conveyed to me via PM after the heated exchange on another thread, one of India's most respected LHSes sent some long but thin items to a member, and it arrived with nothing inside.  The package had holes on both ends and item inside was completely missing. The good thing with the LHS was that they sent the item again, and the buyer paid for shipping again.

I have seen Aramex courier guys throw parcels to the back of the truck (to be stacked up there). This was outside the customs office at the Doha airport cargo terminal.  When I questioned the folks doing this (I order radios etc through Aramex), they said they feel the weight of the item before throwing it, and also look at how well it is packed... and only throw items that they are confident about.  To my shocked eyes, I couldn't see them making that determination... based on how fast they were going through the large number of packages.

I am a victim of a bit different, but a blunder which changed my career..

I recieved my councelling letter for Aeronautical Engineering two months back which was sent THREE years back in june 2008..
Now i am in a different professional course and about to complete my third year.. I had lots of argues with the postmaster, but i knew it was worthless.
I knew that i could do nothing as three years have passed.. Sad

I think the sufferer should get together and file a Criminal case of fraud and robbery against the corrupt officials. Complaining to Head postmaster won't yield any result as they may be either incapable to take action against thier own staff (crappy union cartel) or even may be themselves involved to some extent.

The case may take ages, but at least they would think twice before repeating the crime that consumer may strike back. Remember, tolerating crime is crime itself as you are encouraging the criminal to make new victims.

The problem of our plagued British era system is that rarely Police can open case based on paper reports unless people appear in flesh and blood to testify.

there has to be a mandatory fine imposed on the courier companies, multiple times the cost of the parcel.. Angry

This may tune up the these companies to keep a strict check on their employees..

Every Flight is a test & every Crash is a Lesson.



The culprits are right at the PO. Try ordering some worthless stuff and surely you will get it!!

My father said the exact same thing.  Head Scratching He said he had experienced something like this before and the culprits were the customs officials who open the packages.

So, we can order things online only if its worthless to the customs officials.

We are so lucky that they are not interested in RC...or else they would have whacked every single package and probably replaced it with stones..
