Govind Ballabh Pant

Pt. Govind Ballabh Pant was born on September 10, 1887 in Khunt, a tiny village in District Almora, U.P. and brought up in an atmosphere far removed from the current of national resurgence. He had a brilliant academic career, which he rounded off with a L.L.B. degree from the Allahabad University in 1909.

Pt. Govind Ballabh Pant abandoned it in answer to Mahatma Gandhi’s inspiring call for non-violent non-cooperation and plunged into active politics in the early twenties. He became a member of the U.P. Legislative Council in 1923 and was elected President of the U.P. congress Committee in 1927.

As  Union Home Minister, he showed great skill in handling the intricate and difficult task of State reorganization and in securing a broad consensus in favour of the Official language policy. He took special interest in Kashmir Affairs. As Chairman of the Zonal Councils, he created a forum for hammering out differences between neighbouring States and for co-ordinating development schemes on a zonal basis.

The Posts & Telegraph Department feels privileged to bring out a special commemorative stamp on the occasion of the seventy eighth birth anniversary of this great son of India.
