Great irrationality in imposing air surcharge for every twenty grams on highly haphazard and irrational sea mail tariffs in case of foreign mail at several slabs results in a funny situation where an item mailed in two parts costs much less than if sent as one item. This irrationality can and should be removed by fixing air and sea mail tariffs independent of each other.
Air mail tariffs should be fixed for equal tariff rise for every 20 gms or part abolishing practice of separately imposing air surcharge, while sea mail tariffs may be fixed for equal tariff rise for every 50 gms or part. All inland and foreign mail tariffs should be in multiples of rupees five except in case of sponsored meghdoot post card which may be priced at rupees one, abolishing all other types of post-cards.
Inland Letter Card having lost popularity should be removed from the system. System of fixation of postal tariffs should be so revised that beauty of commemorative stamps may be used for all types of postal services including Speed Post.
