    Any Meghdoot Postcard issued in the year 2012 and 2013? If yes, what are the details?

    Hon’ble friends,
    Meghdoot postcards are still issued but in limited number.It is due to change in government policy.Now as per existing rules proponent of Meghdoot postcard has to purchase all the published Meghdoot cards.For e.g. an MPC was released on Rajnikant’s movie ‘ROBOT’ and due to rules all were purchased by the proponent ‘AMOL FILMS’.Previously some left over MPC were sold at 8 selected bureaus of INDIA POST.
