Goa Posts has released philatelic passport

GOA: For the first time ever, Goa Posts has released a philatelic passport. This rare collectible has souvenir cards of festivals that are only native to Goa like Chikhal Kaalo, Satryo, Konsachem Fest, etc, along with information on the festival where they are held.

“Goa’s culture and heritage is showcased through its unique village festivals. This philatelic passport will be like a travel guide for philatelists and also serve as a souvenir,” said Dr Sudhir Jakhere, the senior superintendent of post offices, Goa Division. Protected in stamp pouches are also accommodated on each ‘passport’ page for philatelists to paste. Goa Posts intends to release similar ‘passports’ highlighting other rare but interesting aspects of Goa.
 

Dr M R Ramesh Kumar, president of Goa Philately and Numismatics Society (GPNS) said that philately is a good investment and that stamp collection is a good avenue for youngsters to explore. “Over a period of time, stamps which are purchased will give much better returns than gold. Knowledge of philately will positively help in which stamps and philatelic products to invest,” he said.
