Dear Reader 
This is the 51
issue of Rainbow Stamp News and with this issue its journey starts for another half century issues 
…and hope it will 
complete 100 issues in the years to come. I 
wish to thank all my contributors and readers for their best wishes motivating me to work for another 50 issues. My sincere thanks to all of you !! India Post has given a tentative list of stamps to be issued in the year 2012 . The list shows that about 71 stamps are proposed to be issued this year. In the list, special set for London 2012 Olympics has not been included but this could not be missed and India Post will have to issue a commemorative set to mark this great event. Thus the total number of stamps will reach around 80 this year which is a very big number. There are 15 stamps in the list to 
be issued on ‘P 
. The increase in number of stamps definitely reduces the quality of stamps.The philatelic advisory committee of India Post must review the rules and make necessary amendments to reduce the number of issues per year and improve the quality of paper,printing and design of the stamps. India Post seems to beat other postal administrations in the world to issue record number of stamps per year . But the selection of theme and quality of stamps is not up to the mark. There is a need to make a change in stamp issuing policy and the number of stamps issued per year must be restricted to a certain number ! 
This is all for this month….Happy 
Collecting !!
