Chennai: In a first of its kind initiative in India, 37 post offices in Tamil Nadu have begun selling air, train and interstate bus tickets.

The Tamil Nadu postal circle has entered into a joint venture with a private ticketing service to provide train and air tickets. All domestic airline tickets will be made available in these post offices.

"We have tied up with ARM I Solutions to install 'genie easeticket' at post offices," said principal post master general Indira Krishnakumar, throwing open the service to the public Monday.

The pilot project will cover 37 Chennai circle and Tiruchirapally circle post offices, ARM I Solutions chairperson Usman Fayaz said. The company will also provide interstate and long distance bus tickets.

The pilot project will be emulated by India Post across the country, officials said. Soon, hotel bookings and car rentals will also be provided by these post offices.
