Recently a well reputed philately blog of India has displayed some Max Cards created by one respected philatelist/collector on President House. The administrator of the blog, in response to so called queries has clarified that anybody can get the Max cards cancelled from any bureau. Yes, we all know that cancellation on Max cards can be got done by anybody from any Bureau though more appropriate would be and make a max card perfect if the cancellation is done from place of release/ connected place. Yes in this case New Delhi is more proper since President House is situated in New Delhi.
But the moot question in this case is How for it is proper to do ELECTONIC/DIGITAL forgery in creating the philatelic item. From reliable sources it is learnt that Sh Atul Jain a senior philatelist from Bilaspur had sent the scan of FDC of President House cancelled from Bilaspur from display on this renowned blog. A senior philatelist from Dehradun created the Max Cards,electronically/ stole the cancellation from the fdc n pasted it on the Max Cards created by him.
It is reliably learnt that Bureau In charge Bilaspur has not cancelled any max card n he is reported to be on leave from 6th August onwards. Creating a Max Card is very good. Getting max card cancelled is essential but means adopted to get the cancellation should be fair and not the type of one which have been adopted by our Respected n Esteemed collector fro Dehradun.It is unethical n can be categorized FORGERY. It is also learnt that the creator of these FABRICATED Max cards has confessed to one fellow collector from Bilaspur about the modus operandi adopted by him in fabricating these max cards by using net n digital technology and We leave it to the collectors to judge how for it if ethical to fabricate a max card n manipulate the Philatelic Material to befool the innocent collector by a morphed image.
