Commemorative Stamps on 100 Years of Mahatma Gandhi’s Return were released

January 15th, 2015 is glad to announce that India Post has released a set of commemorative stamps on 100 Years of Mahatma Gandhi's Return. Hon’ble Minister of Communications and Information Technology Shri Ravi Shankar Prasad presented the album of stamps to Hon'ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi who released the stamps in presence of other respected persons.

Mahatma Gandhi arrived in South Africa at a young age of 24 years as the legal counsel of Indian traders based in the city of Pretoria. He spent more than two decades in South Africa, where he developed the concept of Satyagraha while fighting against the gross injustice, discrimination and racism prevailing there.

Gandhiji returned to India with a formidable reputation to lead the Indian masses struggling for freedom from colonial domination through civil disobedience and non-violence, which proved to be highly effective moral weapon in the India's struggle for Independence.

The issue was released on the 8th of January and is now available for purchasing.
