Does it mean two designs were prepared? Does it mean no care was taken to compare the design of stamp viz-a-viz stamp appearing on Broucher. Does it really speak well of Indian Philately? With advancement in technology n claim of Govt. we expect accuracy, uniformity n better services but in case of our country are we getting ?
