Dear Sushma, 

why would you like to have this strain? Upon mailing (unless on dry ice) 
and/or propagating, they will loose their competency anyway and you would 
have to make competents of your own. 
Can't you find some XL1 blue, DH5alpha, HB101 or similar bugs in the 
freezer or the lab next door? Protocols how to make them competent for 
different purposes are in the Red Book, Maniatis or the Internet.

BTW, NEB is giving away (not yet competent) bacteria for many purposes 
FOR FREE (i.e. the cost of shipping and handling unless you order 
anything else). You might check their catalogue somewhwere in the back
