Mistake in Brochure of Jagjit Singh’s Stamp



Here is a blunder made by India Post on the brochure of Jagjit Singh’s stamp. The mistake has just been noticed by noted philatelist Mr Prashant Pandya… He writes…

We must congratulate India Post for issuing beautiful stamps on Shri Jagjit Singh but in the publicity brochure of Jagjit Singh's commemorative stamp India Post has made a biggest mistake. It has been mentioned that India Post is paying tribute to Shri Jagjit Singh by issuing Se-tenant Stamp on the occasion of his Birth Centenary. Shri Jagjit Singh was born on 8th February 1941 and this year we are celebrating 73rd Birth Anniversary. How come Birth Centenary is celebrated in 2014 ? Will India Post stop making such mistakes ?

yes.this huge error was noticed by me and posted on your Facebook wall when I came to know about your FACEBOOK PAGE.

These types of mistakes usually should have been seriously looked into and officials( if not ministers) should have been asked to own responsibility and resign !But in India,who cares 4 responsibility.
