What does National Sorting Hubs (NSHs) mean in an Indian Speed Post?

National Sorting Hubs (NSHs) are shipment sorting hubs for Indian Postal System – India Post

In 2013, India Post introduced Hub & Spoke mechanism for transmission of domestic Speed Post articles under Mail Network Optimization Project (MNOP). 89 main centers of the country were selected as Speed Post Hubs which were named as National Sorting Hubs (NSHs).

NSHs are responsible to dispatch incoming shipments to its connected delivery post offices within the circle and on the same lines are responsible to dispatch outward shipments to within circle and outside circle NSH and Intra Circle Hubs (ICHs).

India Post’s Speed Post Articles(SPAs) are more efficient and quicker. Articles are more efficiently sorted just by identifying the first 3 digits of the PIN codes or districts at National Sorting Hubs (NSHs).
