According to chitter chatter on few groups,
Substantial amount of sheets were sold (dealer-babu nexus)

Miniature sheets are available for sale on Delcampe for about INR 252 for one sheet.

I have seen few covers of Postally Used Miniature Sheets also.

According to few people (not officially confirmed) all stock is sealed and returned to treasury and audit is being done at many Philatelic bureau

Why this happens?
Sometimes negligence
Sometimes intentional misdoings
Mismanagement by India Post
No pre-planned programme of release

Similar thing happened in 2018.

Rajkumar Shukla Stamp was officially issued on 18th Dec 2018.
But it was available in the market since April 2018.

Postally used covers between April-December are also available. :lol:

Apparently another Mystamp : Transport Corporation of India was also released today
Here is the image of this my stamp... strange that they keep releasing these but don’t update them on the portal!

If I have not mistaken, anyone who donates 5 lacs to India Post, can have a MyStamp produced right ?

So, I can set up a XYZ company, pay 12 lacs and create a Mystamp.... hence for me these are nothing but official personalized issues to fund India Post or maybe the coffers of the ruling govt.

I don’t think you even need to have a company, you can just issue one on yourself looks like πŸ˜„... yes so 12L upfront to the postal Dpt to issue these & don’t forget they then sell them to collectors at 500 per sheet.
