To commemorate Childrens Day celebrations, Chief
Postmaster General (CPMG) DoP J&K, John Samuel released two
special postage stamps at function organised here today.

"The stamps are of Rs 5 and Rs 20 denominations. Both the

Day, the Government is encouraging the school children to be
involved in Save the Tiger campaign", he said.

This is a part of the Governments initiative to create
awareness about protecting the Tigers, he said adding that DoP
has been taking many innovative steps to bring high quality
philately stamps.

He said that the Department of Posts brought out a
unique stamp printed on Khadi cloth recently with the image of
the Father of our nation Mahatma Gandhi.
This is the first time the Department brought out a
stamp on cloth, he said adding that all other stamps are
printed on paper and hence there has been a great demand for
this stamp on Khadi.

for the people of Jammu during the philately exhibition and
under this project one can get "personalised stamps" with
one?s own picture.
