SINGAPORE - A commemorative Singapore-India stamp set will be released by SingPost on Tuesday (Nov 24) - while Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is on an official visit to Singapore - to mark the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Singapore and India this year.

India was among the earliest to recognise Singapore in 1965. The joint stamp issue comprises two stamps that depict the presidential residences of both countries: a 1st Local stamp featuring The Istana in Singapore, and a S$2 stamp featuring the Rashtrapati Bhavan in New Delhi, India.

The stamps will be launched by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and Indian PM Narendra Modi at a ceremony at the Istana on Tuesday afternoon.

 

The stamps and related products will be available at all post offices and the Singapore Philatelic Museum from Tuesday, and online at www.stampdelight.com.
