The government has been stating that Department of Posts is in loss. True. But how can it be in profit, when the government is charging the services far below the cost?

A Postal Card by the time it is delivered is costing Rs. 7.53 while it is charged only Rs. 0.50 incurring a loss of more than Rs.7.00  In the same way an Inland Cover costing Rs. 7.48 is sold for Rs. 2.50 causing a loss of about Rs. 5.00.

The Department has to implement the decisions of the government providing services below cost and later the government itself states that the DoP is in loss.

It is almost the same thing with BSNL also. And BSNL is charged with loss. Sufficient support should be given by the government in such cases.
