On 30th Jan. 2015. India Post released a set of 3 stamps on the theme Swachh Bharat. The broucher released says total stamps printed are 5.0 million. This has created big ripples in the market. Whether all stamps taken together are 5.0 million or the quantity of each stamp is 5.0 million. The omission of word each has created a storm in the cup. The stamp has disappeared from the bureaus n Bureau in Charges all over India are having tough time in dealing with customers as supply of stamps is reported to be very less in each bureau.
Whether the omission of printing each in Broucher is deliberate or inadvertent is not clear but one thing is clear that it has created a big buzz in the market. If total 5.0 quantity printed is 5.0 millions then it defies the logic of exact quantity of each stamp. Further, it is not clear why commemorative stamps have been issued on this Theme. In fact. This is one theme on which definitive stamps should have been issued n not commemorative. More so when currently prevailing series of definitive’s is old then 5 years and can be done away with.
