Mr. Prasad is also holding the postal department in addition to telecom and IT. The postal secretary S K Sinha said “We will launch the services very soon. The details are being finalized”.

Postal department is also planning to contact ecommerce websites to reach out to the masses. “Also, we will be selling it through the internet portal of the postal department.”

There also plans to have kiosks within post offices that will be selling the Gangajal. “There are talks being held with companies in the packaging industry that would help in bottling the water,” official sources said.

Ecommerce websites such as Amazon sells Gangajal on its portal, though it charges very high for it.

For a 1-litre bottle sourced from Gomukh, the place from where the river originates, the e-commerce company charges Rs 299. “This is world’s best known most sanctified for pooja. It is packaged near the origin of river Ganges at celestial height in deep Himalayas where its natural sanctity and herbal richness are maintained,” Amazon says in its description of the product.
