Over the years, the passion for stamp collection has seen a decline and to revive this hobby or art, Department of Posts runs a scheme for philatelists. They can avail stamps for collection at Philatelic Bureaus and counters in designated Post Offices. One can easily open a Philately Deposit Account in any Head Post Office by depositing Rs 200/- and get items like Stamps & Special Covers. In J&K Postal Circle, the Philatelic Bureaus are located at Srinagar GPO, Gandhinagar HO and Leh HO.
This year considering the COVID-19 pandemic led situation, most of the events of Department of Posts, J&K Postal Circle will take place virtually, promoting the main theme of this year “Be with Yoga, be at home.”
