While this goes on unabated, people have to incur a great loss by not receiving important documents from their senders. The postmen who serve in the posh area like Civil Lines in Allahabad would not deliver the telephone bills in various houses and shops but would fling it in some other houses - presuming that the distant neighbours will extend the courtesy of delivering it to the addressee, forgetting that it is their duty to do so and not that of the neighbour.
There are many complaints from many areas of the city in this respect, but the postal authorities keep quiet over the issue, and nothing happens. Fortunately, people now have the choice to receive and pay telephone bills via the Internet too. Hence that ordeal hasn't to be undergone. But how many important letters one might still be missing because of their delivery at wrong places is any body's guess! Will the higher postal authorities ensure that in all colonies, this practice is stopped, and severe action is taken against the offenders?
