Now, get stamps with your photo

Now, get stamps with your photo
Christin Mathew Philip TNN

Chennai:Mahatma Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru are among the greats whose portraits are used on stamps by India Post. But now, your picture could also be a stamp on the letter you send to your dear ones. India Post will introduce ‘the facility of converting personal photographs’ as legally valid stamps in Chennai in a couple of weeks.
    The personalized stamp will have two parts — the currency part and the photograph — detachable from each other. You can choose these backgrounds: zodiac signs, flowers, Taj Mahal, Panchatantra tales, trains, wildlife and Aeroplaneses.
    You may submit your photo or get photographed at the post office at no extra cost. You get a set of 12 stamps of Rs 5 denomination for Rs 300, but after police verification that may take a week. This is the latest measure India Post has taken to survive in a world of instant messages. This scheme called ‘My Stamp’ allows photographs to be printed on five-rupee stamps.
    The concept, which has been popular in the USA, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore, was launched in the country during the World Philatelic Exhibition in 2011 in Delhi. ‘My Stamp’ was earlier introduced in Maharashtra, Bihar, Gujarat and UP, but not many know about it. In Chennai, select post offices will offer ‘My Stamp’ in a fortnight. While the idea of one’s own photograph as stamp has excited many, some feel it would take away the sanctity of a postal stamp. “A stamp is something like a legal tender. I think this move may take away that identity,” said S Ulaganathan, a shopkeeper who sends money orders to his home in Tirunelveli every month.
    But the younger lot is happy. “It would be fun having my stamp on the cover of my birthday invite,” said 16-year-old R Vinay, who has never posted a snail mail.
