1609. ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ New Issues From Southern Asia.

๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ India Post issued a single stamp on 17 February 2020 to commemorate the centenary of the industrial city of Jamshedpur. The issue was designed by Smt. Alka Sharma and wet offset printed by Security Printing Press Hyderabad. Rating:- ***.

  There have also been two recent India Post My Stamps sold as usual in sheetlets of twelve at prices above face value:- 

17 February 2020 - COP13 (Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Migratory Species, held in Gandinhagar 17 - 22 February 2020) - 1 stamp with attached label.

5 February 2020 - DEFEXPO20 (Defence Expo India 2020 held in Lucknow, 5 - 9 February 2020) - 1 stamp with attached label.

๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ฐ Sri Lanka Post issued 3 stamps on 20 February 2020 on 3 different subjects. The first commemorated the Birth centenary of Mohideen Baig (1919 - 1991), a notable Sri Lankan musician. Rating:- **.

  The second was on the subject of ‘Towards Sustainable Development 2020’. Quite a striking design. Rating:- ***.

The third stamp is possibly the most interesting being one half of a joint issue with the postal service of Nepal. The issue specifically commemorates the 60th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries. The Nepali stamp, which was issued on 27 December 2019 is depicted beneath its Sri Lankan twin though the stamps are clearly not identical!

๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ Pakistan Post - 18 February 2020 - Birth centenary of Mahmoud Ali (politician) - 1 stamp. Rating:- **. (PA20.3).

17 February 2020 - High level International Conference in Islamabad, 40 years of presence of Afghan refugees in Pakistan - se-tenant block of 8 (4 different) stamps with 2 labels between 2 blocks of four. Rating:- ****. (PA20.4 - 7).
