NEWS- USTAD BISMILLAH KHAN
It is reliably learnt that some Philatelic Bureaus in the country are yet to receive (as on 06 Sep 2008) either the stamps or orders for issue of the stamp on Ustad Bismillah Khan . The stamp was released on 21 Aug 2008. There is apparently and presumably a delay in communication to these Bureaus.
