Glimpses of Modern Indian Philately

This blog is devoted to Modern Indian Postal History and Modern Philately of India providing less known information on various aspects of Indian Postal Services.



Welcome to the Glimpses of Modern Indian Philately Blog! 

Postal history is the study of postal systems and how they operate and, or, the study of postage stamps and covers and associated material illustrating historical episodes of postal systems, various postal facilities and services etc.

Indian philately has found its due place on the map of world philately. Since Independence, several definitive and commemorative stamps portraying various aspects of the country’s life and culture have been issued. If we look back, we will find that since Independence many postal services were introduced out of which some were revised and few were discontinued. There were many postal services, which are not even known today. There are many facts which are not known to collectors. 

Postal History of Modern India is also very and vibrant and provides a vivid, varied and wealthy treasure of information. 

Idea of creating a blog ‘Glimpses of Modern Indian Philately’ is conceived to provide, share and discuss information exclusively on Modern Postal History or Modern Philately of India.

Collectors of Modern Indian Philately around the world are invited to share the knowledge and information on the subject.
