In his book “Nepal Postal History, 1991” Wolfgang C. Hellrigl writes on page 36:

“The Indo-Nepalese Postal Agreement of 1936 … Eight Exchange Post Offices were opened at strategic points at either side of the Indo-Nepalese border.”

Does anybody know these eight places? For example there was one in Bhairahawa (see scan)



And the other 7 Exchange Post Offices?

Thank you,
Johannes
