Story of Special Cover on 25 Years of Speed Post (3): Delhi Special Cover

\"\"By Anil Kr Pujara

The Babudom of India Post woke up from the slumber n suddenly decided to release a special cover on 07.05.2012 across the country cutting the barriers of culture. The cost of Special Cover was kept Rs.13/= +cost of Information Sheet RS.2/=+cost of stamp Rs.5/=. Thus in total the price tag of this special cover is Rs.20/=.  Is there any logic? The cover was released in New Delhi on 7.5.12. It was supposed to be released from all the Philatelic Bureaus of India Post from 7th May.. The subsequent additions will throw light on the ground reality persisting at Bureaus as I ventured to collect this Special cover from all the Bureaus of India Post. Here we start with the image of Cancellation made available from Philatelic Bureau of Parliament Street (SANSAD MARG) New Delhi.

The Speed Post network is the biggest Express Service Network in India as claimed by India Post in the information Sheet being sold along with Special Cover released by India Post to commemorate 25 years of Speed Post.    More to follow
