Philately is not something that everybody is aware of or necessarily focuses on. Philately which is the collection and study of postage stamps is something that is extremely underrated and often goes unnoticed. In order to promote Philately as an educative hobby and in lieu of Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th birth anniversary, the Philatelic Congress of India is organising INPEX 2019, a national stamp show in Mumbai.

The exhibition which is being organised in association with department of posts, other member philatelic societies and India Post, will exhibit over a 1000 frames each encapsulating the importance and significance of stamps in our country. With both competitive and non-competitive categories, the exhibition will include stamps pertaining to several eras in Indian history including the pre and post-independence era, and stamps from the rest of the world. Thematic presentations of stamps will also be exhibited. Themes such as nature, culture and technology will be represented through stamps. In order to celebrate 150 years of Mahatma Gandhi the exhibition will also place special focus on the life of the Mahatma through stamps. Besides the exhibition the show will also host interactive activities, sale booths and philatelic auctions.
