The Post Office Act provides immunity to all the postal employees for the loss or damage of article in transit. Except such lost is due to intentional negligence or willful act of the postal department employees. So you can get relief from Consumer court only when you will be able to prove that your document lost due to intentional negligence or willful act of the postal department employees.
