King of Hobbies
Collection of stamps is one of the oldest hobbies which is still very popular.
Often called 'King of hobbies and hobby of kings' this art is not for
the affluent only. It is one hobby which cuts across age groups and
could be taken up by anyone and everyone.
TO COLLECT STAMPS

stamps from the mail you receive
stamps with friends, neighbours
stamps from stamp dealers
- Standing order with philatelic bureau
IS A STANDING ORDER? (deposit account)
are released on various dates according to the annual stamp program.
Often, it may not be possible to keep track of new releases. It may
also happen that some of the popular issues may be sold out soon after
receipt. This may lead to disappointment for many collectors since as
per convention philatelic stamps are never reprinted. To avoid these
difficulties and make stamp collecting hassle free, standing order
facility has been introduced.
DOES IT WORK?
you become a standing order account holder, every time there is a new
release, philatelic material as per your order will be reserved for
you and will be dispatched to you every month by registered
post. All you have to do is fill up the application form along
with the payment. You can subscribe this on behalf of someone else too
and surprise him/her.
