Postal Division will have to introduce quick response (QR) code on postage stamps which will depict the photos on them, said Telecommunications Minister Mustafa Jabbar.

Addressing a virtual drawing contest for children as the chief guest on Thursday, the minister also said that postage stamps can play an important role in uphold country’s history and tradition.

Bangladesh Philatelic Association (BPA) organised the event marking the birth centenary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

The minister said the stamp collection album reflects the historical timeline of the country while the introduction of QR code will increase importance of the postage stamps.
