    Undoubtedly very correct obsevations n further the size of FDC is very absurd as it can not accomodate more than 1 MS. If it was not designed to accomodate more than one MS, there could have been fdc much smaller in size.
    The same is the case with broucher. The lay out n colour combincation of Broucher makes cancellation very dull.
    The BROUCHER does not have logo of INDIA POSTnor description that PRINTED BY INDIA POST.
    HAS IT BEEN PRINTED BY INDIA POST REALLY?
