Indore was the first state to ink postal treaty

Indore: Indore was the first Indian state to enter into a postal treaty with the Imperial Post in 1878 for exchange of mails. On March 1, 1908, the Indore state postal department merged with Imperial Post. Indore’s postage stamps, however, continued to be used on official mail but without the overprint.
These interesting nuggets of history have been recalled on the occasion of World Post Day which was observed on October 9. Indore philatelic society has lamented the fact that Indian postal department has not released more stamps on the erstwhile princely state of Holkars except the one it had released in 2010 featuring Indore state with Bamra, Sirmor and Cochin. A day after the World Post Day, society’s president Girish Sharma said , ” Rich history of Indore state deserved more commemorative stamps and we are demanding the same”.
