Lord Dalhousie founded the Postal Service in India. He was a Scottish statesman, and a colonial administrator in British India. He served as Governor-General of India from 1848 to 1856. In 1854 a new Post Office Act was passed by Lord Dalhousie in India. Under this system, a Director-General was appointed to supervise the work of Post Offices in all the Presidencies; a uniform rate of half-anna per letter was introduced and for the first time postage stamps were issued. A postal Department was established for the whole country. As a result of these reforms the post offices became the sources of revenue of the government. The people were benefited by the postal system.
