Presentation Pack -Aldabra – India Post Logo
Indianstampghar had informed its readers about the Aldabra Tortoise Presentation Pack in its edition dated 15 Jul 2009.
A very interesting observation has been sent by Our respected Senior Philatelist Shri O P Gupta from Chandigarh.The Tortoise stamps were released by India Post on 02 Aug 2008 and the presentation pack should /may have been printed and released on 02 Aug 2008 . India Post unveiled a new logo on 23 Sep 2008 ( News carried in our 24 Sep 2008 edition ) i.e after release of Tortoise stamps. The interesting thing is that logo on Top and Back of Tortoise Presentation pack is new one though released later than the Tortoise stamp.
It may be appreciated by INDIA POST that Blank Presentation packs costing as much as RS 350/ are arriving at Philatelic Bureaus almost one year after release of stamps. by which time stamps are to be withdrawn from sale. The Bureaus may not have the sheetlet and hence Bureaus may be selling Blank ones . A FOOD FOR THOUGHT FOR INDIA POST.
