Unification of West Pakistan December 07, 1955. (1955-3)



One important political change was made in the West Pakistan managerial structure. The status of' four provinces; NWFP, Punjab, Sind and Balochistan, was abolished and merged into one unit of West Pakistan. The area of West Pakistan was divided into 11 Divisions.
This historical change was marked by a set of three stamps on December 7, 1955. Large size vertical stamps in single colour illustrated the map of West Pakistan with new layout. Top two corners were decorated with flag of Pakistan, denomination in Urdu and English were engraved at bottom corners, "Pakistan Postage" in English at the base and in Urdu above the map. Quaid's maxims are placed under the map and date "14th OCTOBER 1955", above the map.
