New Delhi: The United Nations Postal System has issued stamps with ‘Diyas’ lamps to mark the celebration of Diwali.
Syed Akbaruddin, India’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, in a tweet yesterday thanked the United Nations for the gesture. Stamps are available at the UN headquarters post office and online.
The stamps are in the $1.15 denomination, which is the basic rate for international airmail letters.
They are sold in sheets with 10 stamps and stickers and a large picture of the UN headquarters lit up for Diwali.
The stamps had been officially released last month and are now available at the UN headquarters post office and online.
