Khadi Stamp:Is it Donation for INDIPEX-2011 or penalty for advance booking?
I have received my two packets of advance booked presentation packs of Gandhi Khadi stamp.Thanks a lot to India Post.It was supplied in a simple thin paper envelope in torn condition.While booking this item Indiapost website was confused, initially for speedpost delievery it asked @ Rs.275/ then after three days they asked for Rs 25/ for total postage.Still the website shows-
\”The Presentation Pack
can be delivered via Speedpost at an additional fixed cost of Rs.25 only. Simply fill the Pre-Order Form below and choose this as the Mode of Delivery. Send a copy of the Confirmation Mail that you receive along with a Demand Draft of the amount (Rs.250 x Quantity + Rs.25) for your order, made in favour of World Philatelic Exhibition/Indipex-2011\”
Thereafter when we talked to Mr. Kala Delhi he clearly stated that after deducting the postal charges the remaining amount will be refunded along with dispatch.But this packet is containing only 10 presentation packs without any covering letter or refund letter.What we expect with such supply is a reciept of amount for accounting, a letter of thanks for booking the material along with way of refund in a good waterproof envelope.For ten packs we have paid Rs 2500/+250/,whereas postal charge is only Rs 50/ as it is clear on reciept.
What about remaining Rs.200/ is it the penalty for advance booking and advance payment? Will it require a RTI or a consumer forum for refund?I think INDIPEX was a mega looting event like selling a Gandhi miniature sheet valued Rs 100/ at the cost of Rs 250/, aerophilately cover at the cost of Rs 5000/ and the height of exploitation was heroins FDC sold in Rs 500/ then after protest it was reduced to Rs 34.What a great idea Sirjee
to organise this great event.
