Prices have been carefully revised and updated in line with todays
very active international stamp market. In common with other rapidly
developing economies, the demand for Indian stamps, particularly the
pre-independence issues, has grown considerably in India itself over the
last few years, with the result that prices have risen dramatically. In
India itself, many earlier stamps have been marked up by 50 per cent, or
more, since the previous edition and the in-demand 10 rupee Gandhi stamp
of 1948 has gone up mint from £45 to £160! Indian States are also
growing in popularity, with the 1931 Investiture set of Jaipur up from
£170/£950 (mint/used) in 2004 to £250/£1400 today. Similar price changes
will be found throughout.
