Passengers can now place order for personalized India Post Stamps at Chennai airport

Air passengers will now be able to place an order for postal stamps with their photo on them at the post office counter that was opened at the Chennai airport's new domestic terminal.   Passengers can place an order for 12 personalized stamps by paying Rs 322 at the counter. They should fill up a pro forma at this counter with ID proof and one recent passport size photo. The twelve stamps will be sent by the postal department to the given address within 10 days.
The postal counter will also offer internet browsing (Rs 25 for half an hour), fax (per page Rs 20 for domestic and Rs 50 for international) and photocopying (Rs 5 per page).
Postal ID cards will be issued for Rs270 (£2.57) and postal life insurance can be bought by customers aged between 18 and 55 years.
The post office was set up as passengers did not have access to the facility after operations shifted to the airport’s  new domestic building.
