Important Notice: Issue With Tracking India Post Parcel

We got complaints from several customers that India post tracking ID is not working. After getting in touch with India post parcel hub, here is the update.

There was a Internet connection outage at India post parcel hub, Ekkatuthangal, Chennai. Due to this parcels sent through this hub since 6-June-2017, the parcels tracking number are not not entered into India post tracking system. Due to this the tracking numbers will be shown as Invalid in the India post tracking site.

But your parcel will be traveling on the way to your address. Once the tracking number is entered into the tracking system, you will be able to get its where abouts. Which is expected to be done in 1-2 working days as per the officials.

Now a days India post is having very strict process in place. So We request our customers not to worry, and rest assured that your parcels will reach you safely.

ISRO: dual success with GSLV MK III + GSAT-19

The Indian Space Research Organization (Isro) launched its heaviest rocket— the GSLV MK III—to put the GSAT-19 communications satellite into orbit, in a demonstration of its capability to hurl next-generation satellites into orbit and carry astronauts into outer space.

At 05-06-2017, 5.28pm, the 43m, 640-tonne geosynchronous satellite launch vehicle (GSLV) Mark III (D1), lifted off from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh. The rocket’s mission was to place the 3,136kg GSAT-19 communications satellite into a geosynchronous transfer orbit (GTO) at 36,000km above earth.

This not end, just a milestone in a long Journey of ISRO.

On this moment Team ASENSAR and DIYIndia Congratulates ISRO for their successful launch and making India self-reliant
