Dhai Akhar

Annual Letter Writing Competition

Dhai Akhar 2022 banner

'Dhai Akhar' is an important initiative of the Department of Posts to connect with the younger generation and to imbibe the hobby of letter writing among children. This initiative also attempts to crowd source the thoughts of younger generation on key issues concerning the Nation. The last three editions of the 'Dhai Akhar' letter writing campaign for the year 2017-18, 2018-19 and 2019-20 were a great success. However, the campaign could not be conducted thereafter due to the Covid-19 pandemic. As we are recovering from the pandemic phase, Department would be organizing the Dhai Akhar letter writing campaign at the National Level on the theme " Vision for India 2047" under the "Vision 2047" of the Government of India for this year i.e. 2022-23. The Department of Posts is conducting the Campaign as part of the promotion of Philately under the banner of "Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav".
