15 August, 1947-Jai Hind Cancellation-By DOP

India got its Independence on 15th august,1947.The postage stamp of free India was not issued on that day but to celebrate the independence,The DOP came out with a slogan “Jai Hind ” as a cancellation on the letters which were posted from few post offices.

This is the cover ,having the cancellation with “Jai Hind” inscribed in Hindi prominently in between the  lines.This is a very unique and scare cancellation.Many postal historian would have seldom seen this.
