Kargil, Mar 27 (UNI) In a jet age when the communication with others is just a baton away, people still trust post service in remote and far flung areas in Ladakh region where three more sub-post offices were opened today.
When the entire region remained cut off during winter months from the rest of the country by road due to snowfall, people living in far flung and remote areas get essential commodities, including life saving drugs, school books, uniforms and other article through postal service.
