2. Choose the template and the theme.
3. Get your My Stamp ready in print.

The Philatelic Passport

Having more than 70 countries participating at this exhibition, with a Philatelic Passport, collectors need to travel from country to country by visiting sales booths to buy the stamps and obtain the special datestamp cancellations of that participating country. When it is done, one will have completed his travel around the world. This is very exciting as the activity of traveling through the world would take place at just one venue which is the World Philatelic Exhibition at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.

The philatelic passport has stamps with full postal cancellations on each page. These stamps together with the passport will be worth much more than the individual used stamps when removed. There are collectors of these passports.

Philatelic Passport aims to create enthusiasm amogst children, stamp lovers, philatelists and visitors. The passport can be obtained from the exhibition directly.

The plane flew a distance of five miles, from an Allahabad polo field, over the Yamuna River, to Naini. All mails were marked with a large magenta cachet showing a plane within a double lined circle, inscribed “First Aerial Post – 1911-U.P.Exhibition Allahabad”.

The exhibition will largely focus on Aerophilately as India Post celebrates the Centenary of the First Official Airmail  Flight that took place in India on 18th February 1911. A ceremonial flight  would take place on12th February 2011 from Allahabad to Naini commemorating the 100 years of the Airmail flight.
