Potal services are provided by the central government which will touch even nook and corners of the country. The pity is that a government service is facing much crisis due to competition from courier services.
A courier delivers messages, packages, and mail. Couriers are distinguished from ordinary mail services by features such as speed, security, tracking, signature, specialization and individualization of express services, and swift delivery times, which are optional for most everyday mail services. As a premium service, couriers are usually more expensive than usual mail services, and their use is typically restricted to packages where one or more of these features are considered important enough to warrant the cost.

Postal service is the Central Govt. service - the only agency that is famous all over the world with the name. Courier service is run by different owners, and their rates are not homogenous
