Wednesday, December 27, 2006, 14:25 GMT, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 27, Colombo: Sri Lanka's post offices are looking forward to the arrival of 7.5 million new stamps by air cargo tonight as they do not have stocks to issue to the customers seeking stamps to mail piles of greeting cards.

The Post Master General's Office said that 20,600,000 more stamps have been ordered from foreign printers. Postage stamps with lower denominations are to be issued to the market after marking with higher denominations.

Sri Lanka which needs an average of 34 million stamps per annum is facing a severe shortage of postal stamps. The government owned State printing Corporation cannot meet more than a half of the demand and the Postal Department has to import around seventeen million stamps a year.
