Link to Download CEPT release Update-8 to Meghdoot 7.0 is available at CEPT FTP
As per the orders of Directorate to have an end to end tracking facility for Parcel category items (like RNet for Registered Letters and SpeedNet for Speed Post articles),  a new software viz., ParcelNet has been developed. The new ParcelNetapplication  isdesigned to deal with the following kinds of Parcels booked with the Barcode. 
a)      Registered Parcels including Insured Parcels
b)      Express Parcels (proposed znew service — not yet launched)
c)       Business Parcels (Proposed new service—not yet launched)
ParcelNet application is used in Parcel Hubs/Express Parcel Hubs along with a new ParcelNet Communication Software.  This new ParcelNet environment is integrated with Point of Sale, Despatch and Postman modules of Post Office in order to provide end to end connectivity to these Parcel category articles.
However, as the new services like Express Parcels and Business Parcels are not yet commenced by the Department,  provision for booking of these two kinds of Parcels through Point  of Sale is not made available now.
Besides the ParcelNet modifications (covering Point of Sale, Postman, Despatch and RNet Communication applications),  there have been many new requirements in the fields of IFS Money Orders,  WNX, ePayment tariff,  NREGE etc.   Besides these major changes, there were many minor requirements and bugs fixed.
