INDIA:Different Types of Folders(11)

\"\"\"\"By Sudhir Jain

In the 70s and 80s, Indian Post & Telegraph Department (yes, at that time Postal & Telegraph both the Departments were combined) was issuing Information Sheets instead of folders / brochures. This was the white paper sheet of 13” X 6.5” size, printed both side in English language only. INFORMATION SHEET was the heading of these sheets. Here I am giving front view of two such Information Sheets of BRIDES OF INDIA (30th Dec. 1980) and TRIBES OF INDIA (30th May 1981).

    In case everyone agrees, then can send Scan copy to me and I can compile it and send back to everyone with due credit given to contributor as I have a small collection of folder too – I am too much interested to see the errors in folder and sometime too abridged story which borders to …… I am searching for a word which start with an I …..

    Please see a small contribution “Non – classic error”

    Money seekers, money makers should excuse sending any sort of proposal.

    I have learnt a lot from Mr. Sudhir Jalan’s contribution. However, I have neither downloaded nor copied any information (other than storing some in northern side of my map) – Permission from him is needed to do so.

    Thanks friends that Philamirror is providing us this unique opportunity free of Charge. hat’s off to the editor.
