India Post Invites Suggestions for Commemorative Stamp Themes
India Post has invited the suggestions of the general public for new subjects/themes to be depicted on the Commemorative Postage Stamps to be issued in 2014. The suggestions can be given on any theme related to art, culture, national heritage, flora & fauna, sports, wild life, nature, historical monuments, children oriented subjects and world heritage. Best three suggestions will be recommended for inclusion in stamp issue programme of 2014. These recommendations will also be made available on the web in due course and suitable credit will be given in the Information Brochure for suggesting the selected theme/subject. The details are available on the home page of India Post website (www.indiapost.gov.in).
Before submitting the entry, the catalogue of stamps issued after 1947 and Rules for issue of Commemorative Postage Stamps available on the website may be perused so as to avoid any repetition in the subjects/themes and contradiction to rules. This initiative is being taken by the Department of Posts to promote awareness about the hobby of ‘Philately’ among the masses. The suggestions may be emailed on email address: [email protected] till February 15, 2013.
