Registerd Post and Speed Post


Is there any legal difference between a letter sent by registered post and speed post !

Only registered letter does not confirm if letter has been delivered. Registered letter with A/D confirms letter has been delivered if you recieve the A/D form back.(There have been cases when A/D form was not recieved back by sender even though letter was delivered). Speed Post also confirms letter has been delivered because they maintain records of proof of delivery. A reciept of "Proof of Delivery" can be obtained from Post Office by paying around Rupees 10. For this reason I personally I prefer Speed Post over Registered Post.

The intention of the speed post is to ensure quick delvery  whereas the registered post is to confirm the delivery to the addresse . The registered post is a legal entity which is accepted for service to the right person.

Sir,

Legally speaking both, registered post with a.d. & speed post with a.d. have no difference, in both cases you receive an acknowledgement from the addressee, either directly or through the booking post office. Speed post letter is delivered earlier.

The only, and important, difference is that while wth registered post with a.d. one has to wait for the receipt or request the post office for the receipt, with speed post with a.d. one can track the  movement of the letter on net on http://www.indiapost.gov.in/NSDefault.htm where the date of delivery is generated on the site and can be printed.

If AD of Registered post  is not received, the concerned post office can be asked to :

-supply the delivery certificate, which is supplied by the dept.Many of Head Post Office/Post offices are now connected thru internet and a docket number/complaint number is given instantly and a date is given by whcih the delivery certificate can be collected.The delivery certificate is in the shape of a letter.

-supply the POD in addition to delivery certificate. The POD is run sheet on whcih the postman takes the acknowledgment ( with seal in case of companies). For POD Rs.10/ are charged.

Both can be obtained and are useful.

Thanks to all of you .

Now here is the fact that  motivated me to ask this question:-

Last week , I had occasion to personally visit the post post office and sent  a notice through speed post before filing the writ petition. Speed post charges were Rs. 45/-. When the court issued the notices to private respondents and I went to the concerned office for taking steps , the officer asked Rs. 70/- as postal charges for each party. I was expecting that postal charges would be about Rs. 35/- per respondent as the weight of the notice copies were half than that I had sent earlier by speed post in same case. I told the officer - " Before three days, I had paid rs 45/- only  for single side typed copies and now it is photocopied on both side, then  postal charges must be lesser than earlier". He said - notices through court are sent by registered post only and it's rate is higher than speed post.

I want to send some papers by Speed Post (not registered post) as it is quite fast. But, I want to receive an official confirmation for the delivery of the papers. It seems there is a facility called POD for this purpose. I want to know how to use this facility. Are there any POD forms available with post offices? Though the Speed Post can be tracked but I have observed that even though the article sent by Speed Post has been delivered but final status in tracking does not show that item has been delivered. I want to get details on delivery date & details of person who received it, Kindly suggest.
