Year 2010 witnessed one more pre-matured release of Postage Stamp in Indian Philately. Due to India Post’s repeated habits of postponing or withholding the pre decided releasing programmes of stamps in the eleventh hour brought one more stamp in the pre-matured series/group of Gurugranth Sahib, Bridges of India, Spices of India, Jasmine, Kanyakumari rock memorial, De Facto transfer of Pondicherry, Indian Coast Guards etc.. National Mathematic Day not yet been released by India Post is well available in the open market with the Dealers and Philatelists
Who is the actual culprit of doing such type of mischief, whether the philatelic advisory committee or Ministry who is giving approval for such type of flexi programmes. During 2010 India Post revised thrice the programme schedule. In second schedule clearly it was mentioned as stamp on National mathematics Day will release on 21st December 2010. Later changed the date and eleventh hour given instruction to withheld the stamps.
