India - Setenants Only

First, let me start with what setenant stamps are. Se-tenant stamps are printed from the same plate and sheet and adjoin one another, unsevered in a strip or block. They differ from each other by design, color, denomination or overprint. They may have a continuous design. The word "se-tenant" translates from French as meaning "joined or held together".

India to date has released a whole number of setenant stamps starting from the first below, the 1974 Mathura museum stamp commemorating the Centenary of the Mathura museum. I am posting pictures of all the setenant stamps of India released to date that I have collected so far. Some from all those issued till date I do not have (I will post them here as and when I get them). The pictures here are posted in order of the date of release. 

Please note that in this post the last setenant stamp is the "1999 Unity in Diversity" setenant. 2000 onwards till date will be up on my next post of India - Setenants Only
