RELEASES A COMMEMORATIVE SPECIAL COVER ON THEM
India Post released a commemorative special cover on Mumbai’s dabbawalas on Friday in recognition of their service — delivering fresh, home-cooked food to office-goers across Maximum City with precision.
Maharashtra Transport Commissioner Mahesh Zagade released the cover at the General Post Office here during a three-day philately exhibition, Mumbaipex 2015, which showcases shared heritage and culture.
Nearly 5,000 dabbawalas operate across Mumbai, delivering food to their customers on time using a unique identity code to sort the nearly two lakh lunchboxes.
