Types of Stamps

Types of Stamps
There   are   commemorative     and  definitive stamps. Commemorative stamps are issued, as the name suggests,    to commemorate important events, prominent  personalities in various fields, aspects of nature, beautiful  or    rare flora and fauna, environmental issues, agricultural activities, national/international issues, games   etc.   These   stamps   are   only available at Philatelic Bureaux and counters or under the Philatelic Deposit  Account  Scheme. They  are    printed in limited quantities. 
    Definitive  stamps on the other hand, are   used   for   day - to -  day  postal  mailing    purposes and are available in various ascending denominations from 20 paisa onwards at all postal counters.
