The Department of Posts will issue a commemorative stamp on the Silent Valley on November 15.
The stamp is being issued as a mark of respect to the former Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi, who took the crucial decision to protect the valley, on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of declaration of Silent Valley as a National Park.
Kerala Minister for Forests Benoy Viswam had written to the Union Minister for Communications and Information Technology A. Raja two months ago seeking the issuance of a stamp to coincide with the occasion.
In his reply to Mr. Viswam, Mr. Raja said the proposal was approved. “You are requested to coordinate with the Department of Posts, and arrange to provide necessary material or information on the Silent Valley for further necessary action.”
