    This is the first stamp on Digambar Jain Aacharya. Good and simple stamp like the theme.

    This stamp on Digambar Jain Aacharya has come in Digambar Jains’ Daslaksan Parva days’ panchami. This occasion is very good.

    Election time. On the banner the bust of the Hon’ble Minister is
    several times larger than the image of the person being honored
    with a postage stamp issue. Postal Shirshashana.
    Turning the matter on it’s head. Great.

    Unfortunately it was not available on 11/09/2013 @ Sansad Marg HPO – Delhi.
    Many issues are scheduled on Sunday – even those issued on working days are not available. Spoils the collection of collector whose theme is stamps used in the day of issue
    Impossible to continue.
