This unique launch is indeed a great hon­our for LPU as only a few orga­ni­za­tions in India have achieved such a dis­tinc­tion. Since cus­tomized print­ing of stamps opened up for insti­tutes in 2016 , LPU becomes the first uni­ver­si­ty to have this hon­or. The depart­ment has also issued a cus­tomized stamp for Ama­zon India, and Hin­dus­tan Aero­nau­tics Lim­it­ed.

At the release, Mr. Lal hand­ed over the first set of LPU stamps and spe­cial cov­ers to LPU Pro Chan­cel­lor Mrs Rash­mi Mit­tal, and addressed the gath­er­ing present, “LPU has been ren­der­ing mar­velous ser­vices in the edu­ca­tion sec­tor. Per­form­ing its social respon­si­bil­i­ty, it has also pro­vid­ed employ­ment to many thou­sands of peo­ple. I con­grat­u­late the uni­ver­si­ty author­i­ties on the release of LPU stamp and spe­cial cov­er.” He also added, “As stamps play a vital role in pro­vid­ing us immense knowl­edge about dif­fer­ent impor­tant occa­sions, per­sons, sports etc., I intend to, pos­si­bly, have a state lev­el phi­lat­e­lic exhi­bi­tion at LPU, for thou­sands of stu­dents, so that they may under­stand the real val­ue of postage stamps in our life.”
