Stamp Information : The six postage stamps, being issued on the 15th of March, 1967 are part of the fourth definitive series. Nineteen in all, this series brings out the varied facets of India's eventful present, fast changing and yet rooted in the rich past. The first two in the new definitive series were issued in 1965, the 15 paise denomination showing a woman worker plucking tea leaves and the Rs. 10 denomination depicting India's first atomic reactor. They were followed in 1966 by three stamps viz. the 6 paise stamp with the famous Konark Elephant, the 10 paise with India's first electric locomotive rolling out of the Chittaranjan factory and the Re. 1 stamp with the well known mediaeval piece of sculpture of a woman writing a letter.
