Lucknow, July 14 (IANS) In a first, the postal department here will launch water proof envelopes, costing Rs.7, for the Raksha Bandhan festival.
Specially designed for the Rakhi, coinciding with the monsoon, the envelopes will be launched Tuesday, officials told IANS.
The 12×22 cm envelopes will be available in a variety of colours and launched in all major post offices in the state capital.
