In a few weeks from now, Indian postal department will unveil the new service where you would be able to buy postal products online, and most importantly, send money order from the website.
Process to Send Money Order Online
- Fill up the “To Remit Payment” (TRP-1) form as it appears on screen and press submit. The e Post Office will then take you to the site of the payment gateway where your online payment will be processed.
- After confirmation of payment you will receive a 16 digit iMO number which you can view in My Transactions. Please note this number carefully because payment will be made on the basis of this number. This number will be available online only for 24 hours.
- The details of your transaction minus the secret 16 digit iMO number will then appear on screen. You can either print the receipt at that time. In case you choose not to print you can access this receipt any time by looking in My Transactions at the e Post Office.
- Please note that in order to book an iMO you have to first register on the site and create an account. The advantage would be that your details would only need to be filled once and thereafter would automatically be filled whenever you book an iMO.
Using the new postal service avatar, you would be able to track speed posts and buy philatelic stamps.
Impressive, isn’t it?
