India Post is the government's postal system in India, managed by the Department of Post under the Ministry of Communications.

The initiative to start the Postal Service was taken by Warren Hastings in 1766 under the East India Company, initially known as "Company Mail." Later, in 1854, during Lord Dalhousie's administration, it was restructured into a service under the Crown. Dalhousie introduced uniform postage rates (universal service) and played a key role in passing the India Post Office Act 1854.
