Re: Infrastructure

I think one more topic to be included in this area is the Postal System.
It's true that today's postal systems are being integrated with Telecom
systems, but for Rural India, it is still the backbone of information
transfer for the families there.

I don't know if the postal department per se can be privatised, though we
have the courier companies doing this work. But since in the current
scenario, the postal workers are underpaid and overworked, it makes sense
to consider changes in this area too.
