Tamilnadu Postal Circle - Postal system in Tamilnadu originated during the days of the East India Company. What started as a scheme to convey the mails of the East India Company and its servants in the erstwhile Madras, has now grown into a mammoth system handling over 80 lakhs of mail per day. John Philip Burlton of the East India Company suggested to the Governor of Madras, in 1785, to establish a post office in Fort Saint George so that the letters of the staff of the Company which were carried free at the expense of the Government, could be charged for. His suggestion was accepted and a post office was established at Fort Saint George on 1st June, 1786. This post office later grew into Madras GPO, which is now called as Chennai GPO. At that time, the Post was divided into three divisions, Madras North to Ganjam, Madras South to Anjengo and Madras West to Vellore. The head of the Organisation was a Postmaster General, with his office established at Madras. He was assisted by one Deputy, one writer or native assistant, five sorters, one head-peon and ten peons. In 1789, arrangements were made for despatch of letters to Bombay through Masulipatnam and through Nizam's dominion. The letters were despatched once in a week to Masulipatnam and from there to Bombay. It took about 17 days for a letter to reach Bombay and 19 to reach Calcutta.
