Constitution of India A commemorative postage stamp Constitution Day also known as 'Samvidhan Divas' is celebrated in our country on 26th November every year to commemorate the adoption of the Constitution of India. On 26th November 1949 the Constituent Assembly of India adopted the Constitution of India, which came into effect from 26th January 1950.

AMRITPEX 2023, the National Philately Exhibition aims to be a platform to introduce a whole new generation about philately and its delightful charms.

With more than 1400 frames and digital exhibits on display in a floor area of 50,000 sq ft, and over 40 booths of philatelic items on sale, the exhibition will highlight India’s history, culture, art, and heritage across the years through stamps and pictural collections. Also featuring a competitive section, the winners will get an opportunity to participate in various international philatelic exhibitions.

In addition to the 1400 frames and 46 booths, the exhibition will also include digital exhibits and interactive activities for children and the young.

The art of collecting stamps, philately, is more than a hobby. Philately increased our knowledge of history, culture, art and nature and is a lifestyle choice that can help us connect and ground ourselves.

In modern times, when Internet and mobile phones took over our lives, for a brief period, philately found itself relegated to a quaint hobby. However, it is through this very Internet, philately is once again gaining traction. Online philatelic marketplaces have come up across India and across the world. In addition, access to many media, has made it much easier for collectors to participate enthusiastically once again.

On its part to keep alive this enriching hobby, India Post has an exclusive Philately Promotion Programme. Through this programme, India Post has been organizing philatelic exhibitions at different levels – state, national and international. The objective is to educate the public, children and youth in particular, about the culture, heritage, history, and famous personalities of India and to encourage philately as a hobby.
