Ans.: After the partition of united India into two sovereign states of India and Pakistan in August 1947, the first indigenous Pakistani stamp was issued almost a year later in July 1948, printed for Pakistan. Prior to this, the British Indian stamps with the overprint “Pakistan” in English had been in use. The 1 Re stamp was engraved with Urdu inscription reading “Long Live Pakistan.” The stamp was designed by famous water colour maestro Abdul Rehman Chughtai.
