The motto of creating Philatelists’ Directory is to provide a common platform to the true, genuine and dedicated stamp collectors so that there may be sincere and fruitful interaction amongst the members. Membership to this forum is not suitable for non-philatelists and so their membership request will be discouraged and disallowed. Therefore, all the applicants for registration to Philatelists’ Directory are requested to provide either of the following:

  • Details of PDA account with any philatelic bureau with relevant evidence.
  • Copy of Certificate of participation in any philatelic / stamp exhibition.


We do encourage registrations of new entrants or beginners who are not able to provide any of above references / evidences. In such case, we request them to provide us with any relevant information to prove that they are a genuine stamp collector/philatelist and seriously interested in philately to help us to process their request for registration.
