The Congress will deliberate on the advances made in researches into various aspects of the oriental heritage of mankind. The Congress has been divided into ten principal sections ranging from Egyptology and Indology to Islamic and African studies.

The Posts & Telegraphs Department is privileged to issue a special stamp to commemorate the convening of the Congress in India on the 4th January, 1964. Appropriately enough, the motif adopted in the stamp is the bronze figure of “DIPA-LAKSHMI” which signifies the spirit of illumination through study and investigation.
