Question

Recently I found the indiapost.nic.in website where you can supposedly apply for electronic posts etc. i.e; you can give text and they will print and send it to the specified address.

But after registering account I'm unable to login. No error message is shown.

I'm getting an error message when I type invalid user id or password, but I get no error when I use correct password and username, just the main page is shown as if nothing happened.

Also there is the issue of https://www.epostoffice.gov.in/ on which any links don't work.

 

Is this an attempt to stop Activists from filing RTIs online (To State govt)?

Is anyone else able to file RTIs or send ePosts online?

Update: I booted into my Windows and recheked with Firefox and Chrome and Internet Explorer.

 

Logging in using Internet Explorer works. Looks like they are checking user-agent and intentaionally blocking Firefox and Chrome.

 

So I can't use Linux and free software to access government websites. I have to buy a Windows license for 5000 rupees or download a virus or spywate or trojan infested pirated version of Windows from torrents.

 

Good job India Post.

Please file application to seek such information as to the reasons why they have not considered this operation through all browsers, and patronising only one brower, which may not be working for all browsers, complaints received if any, and steps take for reaching the facility to many.

I think that we can use the same through notified post offices also,

Please take up the matter in larger public interest and get some improvement, as you have commenced the process and technically competent.

This is regarding to the problem of ePost allowing login only through Internet Explorer. Firefox and Chrome are not working.

Here is the original post.

So I've decided to file an RTI according to http://www.rtiindia.org/forum/members/g-l-n-prasad.html suggestion.

 

But I need help drafting it. Here is the application that I've drafted so far.

 

1) Please confirm if the indiapost.nic.in allows only Internet Explorer users to login.

2) Provide details on if the website was tested on various browsers like Firefox and Chrome.

3) If "1)" is true why is Internet Explorer is being patronised especially since it's available only for users who buy a Microsoft Windows license for at least 5000 rupees.

4) Have you received any complaints regarding the inability to login to the above mentioned site?

5) Please provide details of action taken in regards to complaints received about "inability to login to the above mentioned site"

6) Please provide me name and other contact details of the company or person who maintains the website.
