    The Rs 10 stamp showing Mahatma Gandhi, released 15 August 1948

    Satrunjaya, Jain temple complex near Palitana, 15 August 1949. Indian stamps reflect the country’s old and richcultural heritage.

    The First Stamp of Independent India was issued on 21 November 1947. It depicts the Indian Flag with the patriots’ slogan, Jai Hind (Long Live India), on the top right hand corner. It was valued at three and one-half annas.

    A memorial to Mahatma Gandhi was issued 15 August 1948 on the first anniversary of Independence. Exactly one year later a definitive series appeared, depicting India’s broad cultural heritage, mostlyHindu, Buddhist, Muslim, Sikh and Jain temples, sculptures, monuments and fortresses.[28] A subsequent issue commemorated the inauguration of the Republic of India on 26 January 1950.

    Definitives included a technology and development theme in 1955, a series all showing the map of India in 1957, denominated in naye paisa (decimal currency), and a series with a broad variety of images in 1965.

    The old inscription of “INDIA POSTAGE” was replaced in 1962 with “भारत INDIA”, though three stamps issued between December 1962/January 1963 carried the earlier inscription.[18]

    India has printed stamps and postal stationery for other countries, mostly neighbours. Countries which have had stamps printed in India include Burma (before independence), Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan,Portugal, and Ethiopia.[27]
