I published news yesterday about postage stamps issued by Brazil in honour of 100 years Indian Cinema. I received mail from some Readers that these stamps are personalized stamps and not the regular issue. I tried to check the facts and received details about the issue from distinguished philatelist, Mr Prashant Pandya who thoroughly searched the facts. The details show that this is a regular issue and not the personalized one. About denomination there is mention of 'PORTE CARTA COMMERCIAL' on the stamp which means Postage / Business Letter so it must be for Business Letter Postage rate. In many countries they do not mention postage value but they mention class of mail on stamps. A reply from Brazil Post about this issue is also awaited. My thanks to Mr Pandya for checking out the facts. I hope this will definitely clear the doubts of many readers.
Brazilian Post and Telegraph Corporation launched a set of two postage stamps commemorating 100 years of Indian Cinema - 15th May 2014. ‘Indian Cinema One hundred years show’ (Mostra 100 Anos Cinema Indiano) was oragnised by Ananda Jyothi and Carina Bini at the National Postal Museum, Brasilia-DF from 5th to 18th May 2014.
