India Post, Mumbai is striving to home deliver the cash pension amounts to the senior citizens, without delay so that in this time of emergency, aged and elderly people do not need to step out of their houses and may stay in complete quarantine. 

India Post, Mumbai is keeping all Head Post offices, along with Mumbai GPO, across the city open to provide uninterrupted emergency services ; Bombay Central H.O, Mahim H.O,  Kalbadevi H.O, Dadar H.O, Chembur H.O, Andheri H.O and Borivali H.O, being a few of the lot.

Postmaster General, Mumbai Region, Ms. Swati Pandey has instructed to keep all postal ATMs well stocked so that people having ATM card of any bank may access the postal ATMs in case of necessity (only ATM situated in Andheri H.O could not be kept active due to serious technical flaw).
India Post Mumbai prays for the safety and good health of one and all.
