    At the begining of the year India Post started with schedule of release of 41 stamps. It was revised to 65 n now again revised to 56. Pl wait n watch because we are just not even half year through n twice the schedule is revised. By the time year is complete how many times more the plan will be revised only God knows.

  2. SUNIL KUMAR GARG says:

    No asses in August in the new list. Left out in the open or what. Hope the
    asses do no get slaughtered. Wishing the asses better luck than the Lucknow-Hazratganj stamp /Maths Day stamp.
    (Thank Havens India Post has forgotten the 150th Birth Anniversary of the one and only MADAN MOHAN MALVIYA- what sane stamplover wants another Personality….)

  3. K Sridhar says:

    Also, please see, most of them were Personalities. As if, India is not rich in any other theme(s) / topic(s) …..

  4. It is disgusting to see that importance is given to personalities stamps and issues like wild donkey and wall paintings have been dropped. There should be limit for personalities stamps.

  5. Kamran Ahmad says:

    A big disappointment. No thematic stamps?
    This list is very poor in terms of philately.

  6. Aayush says:

    I just happened to meet some people in the philatelic advisory committee.. and they say they are under pressure to release Dev Anand, Shammi Kapoor, M.F. Hussien & Jagjit Singh stamps already in 2012.. They say that the government forces are behind this & the plan is to issue limited stamps so that they can become really popular…

    I dont know what the government and the philatelic committee are thinking.. In India, more than 30% of the stock is always in the hands of dealers!!!!

  7. SUNIL KUMAR GARG says:

    It would be sensible if IndiaPost listened to those who wean it away from
    over-issue of personalities stamps.
    Anyway, M F Hussain stamp, if conceived & issued would meet a fate
    much-2 worse that the Guru Granth Sahib Stamp of 2005. While
    dealers would JUST love that, stamplovers shall pay a heavy price.
    Hope, that does not happen.
    Look, what they have done to MYSTAMP.

  8. Aayush says:

    MYSTAMP is being over-rated & over-hyped in my opinion. Infact, if you go and search on google, most of the countries are already out with 2012 stamp program with countries like US, Finland showing designs of the stamps that will be issued too!

    Do you think we can expect such things in India? Its a shame. This year most of the stamps have been on personalities. The only stamps that I liked this year are census, security forces & rajya sabha. Even this year’s children’s day stamps were not so appealing. I was so much looking forward to issues such as wild asses, railway bridges, but they have just disappeared. If you remember, last year they were also going to release on a new theme, “seasons of India”, now I dont know when these issues will actually see the light of the day. We still dont have any commemorative series on fruits, vegetables, costumes, alphabets, etc. While other countries have so many issues on these themes. In India all they are bothered about is personalities, personalities and personalities. Dealers take an advantage of this and the result is more and more people either leaving philately or turning into dealers!!

    God also doesnt know the future of Indian philately..

  9. SUNIL KUMAR GARG says:

    Indeed, Census-11 stamp was one outstanding issue of the year till Nov. 2011. But the design was not a unique one-if you search
    on the internet you will soon get the impression that the Census Stamp though well executed & quality printed was rather inspired.
    Personally I liked the Trained Nurses issue the most. And the most
    colorful must be the ICMR Stamp.
    Anyway-to each his own, perhaps. Still, there should be no contention
    for the worst printing, the Santanam issue. And do not forget how ISP destroyed Rashtrapati Bhavan Stamps by printing them so badly!
