India! The country with amazing diversity and wonders has many champions. All these are real facts and real records. Most of them are certified by authentic record books like Guiness Book of Records & Limca Book of Records. I am trying to tabulate as many as I can.

Established by the British colonial rulers for the smooth running of their administration, the Indian postal system has evolved into a multi-technology and multi-service organisation which is present throughout the length and breadth of the country.
