    RV is released but noone knows when the issue list for 2012 will be released.


    This issue is quite different from other issues in that it has
    large white borders thus allowing for misperforations that
    de-grace stamps printed wall-to-wall.

    One question many other former presidents stamps bear the inscription “President of India (19yy – yyyy)”. This one does not have it. Any reason?
