Philately is the study of Postage Stamps, Postal History and other Postage related items. Philately dates back to 1840 when First Postage Stamp “The Penny Black” was released. It is believed that the collection of Postage Stamps was originated with the release of this First Postage Stamp. In India, History of Postage Stamps dates back to 1852 with Asia’s First adhesive Postage Stamp, the Scinde Dawk by Sir Bartle Frere, the British East India Company's administrator of the province of Sind, and it is divides into two parts; Pre-Independence and Post-Independence.
For the study of Post-Independence stamps is provided by lot of historians and Philatelists. However, for some reasons, the details of all Postage Stamps in sequence and with details could not be compiled.
