🇮🇳 India Post issued a My Post stamp in the usual format of a small sheet of 12 with attached labels on an as yet unspecifed date in February 2020 on the subject of Brihadeeswarar Temple. Not without interest.

  Another My Post stamp was issued on 12 February 2020 also in the usual format and at a premium price. This particular issue commemorated the Centenary of NIBM (the National Institute of Bank Management). This is the best illustration I can provide at present:-
