Protectionist Postal Bill?

Rubic Cube’s post – Speed Post – on Bangalore Metblogs makes me write this.

There is a new Postal Bill that the governments is mulling over. A draft was released in April 2006. One proposal in there could disallow private couriers from carrying letters and packages weighing under 300 grams. Essentially, government is gifting India Postal Service a monopoly on consumer courier business.

So could it be that India Postal Service is trying to build up its “express” image before debates start on this new Bill?
