Festival of India (Science & Technology) 23.3.1982

The next stamp issued on the theme of Festival of India in London was also issued on 23.3.1982. This stamp was on the progress made by India in Science and Technology. The stamp shows the Radio telescope at Ooty or Uthagamadalam as it is now called.

This large Radio Telescope, which is in the form of a parabolic cylinder 530 M long X 30 M wide, operating at 327 MHz, is one of the largest telescopes in the world operating at Meter wavelengths. It is four times more sensitive than the 76 meter diameter Jodrell Bank parabolic dish.
