pack 2009 front

India Year Pack 2009

Received  Year Pack 2009 through my PDA account. I was shocked to see the price printed on the pack.
There were total 107 stamps issued in 2009, with three stamps in denomination of Rs. 20.
so the total comes to
104 x Rs. 5 = Rs. 520
3 x Rs. 20 = Rs. 60
Total = Rs. 580.

pack 2009 reverse

but the price printed on the pack was Rs. 800...!!! also the quantity of stamps issued were mentioned wrong as 104 instead of 107.Normally in previous year packs, the handling cost charged was around only Rs. 60
