There are two locations in UP and one in Maharashtra all known as Naugarh and all having branches at sub-office level, of the State Bank of India. At the time of the Post Office Guide that I use, the Naugarh south of Varanasi was known as Nowgarh, and the location in Maharashtra was not listed as having a Post Office.  The Naugarh that remains, is on the railway north of Gorakhpur towards Nepal, a suitably out-of-the-way place to be still improvising this stamp in 1972.  Click to enlarge.
