Pakistan has resumed postal mail services with India and lifted a ban on the delivery of letters, news agency ANI reported quoting a Pakistani media.

Parcel services, however, remains banned, the reports added.

Imran Khan-led Pakistan government unilaterally downgraded diplomatic relations with New Delhi after India abrogated Article 370 and bifurcate Jammu and Kashmir into two union territories.

In August, the Pakistan government suspended postal mail services and partially shut its airspace.

India had slammed Pakistan as the move was in contravention of international norms.

"Pakistan has stopped postal services to India for the last two months. After Pakistan has stopped it our postal department has also thought of taking appropriate action," Minister of Communication and Information Technology, Ravi Shankar Prasad, had said on October 21.
