Now people can get “Gangajal” -- holy water from the Ganga -- at all post offices across the country and if they want, they can even get it delivered to their doorsteps.

Union ministers Ravi Shankar Prasad and Manoj Sinha on Sunday launched a new scheme here that makes “Gangajal” available at all post offices and enables Indian Post to deliver it to people’s doorstep.

“Now holy Gangajal from Gangotri and Rishikesh will be available at all the post offices,” Prasad said.

Sinha said that after the Ganga water in Bihar’s Sultanganj will become clean, the postal department will send it to the people’s doorstep.

“Right now only holy Ganga water from Gangotri and Rishikesh will be delivered to the people across the country by Indian Post,” he said.
