Stamp in honour of the late Nani A. Palkhivala

Along with several other organizations the Trust had also appealed to the then Prime Minister, Mr. Atal Bihari Vajapayee, that the Government of India release a stamp in memory of the late Nani A. Palkhivala. The Government responded favourably and the Prime Minister himself released the stamp at a largely attended function at the Tata Theatre, NCPA, Mumbai, on 16 January 2004, which coincided with the late Palkhivala’s 84 birth anniversary.

Among those present were the Governor and Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Mohd. Fazal and Mr. Sushilkumar Shinde, respectively, the Union Minister for Communications and Information Technology, Mr. Arun Shourie and the Chief Post-Master General of Maharashtra and Goa, Mrs. Noorjehan and Mr. Ratan N. Tata. Mr. Tata welcomed the gathering, while Mr. Soli J. Sorabjee, Trustee and also the then Attorney-General of India, proposed the vote of thanks.
