India Post issued a commemorative postage stamp on National Mathematics Day in December 2012.This stamp was printed in 2010 but not released due to unknown reasons. According to India Post rules packets of this stamp were sealed and preserved in various Philatelic Bureaus under safe custody. When the stamp was released philatelists were happy that they will get a beautiful thematic stamp for collection but unfortunately they disappointed as almost all the philatelic bureaus officials said that quantity is less. This stamp was printed in sufficient quantity but due to hoarding by dealers it is not available at philatelic counters and is being sold on e-commerce websites on very high prices. It seems that a nexus between few post offices and stamp dealers was working behind it because sheets of this stamp were in market since 2010 on unimaginable prices (10 to 15000/- per sheet).According to some senior philatelists dealers who purchased these sheets on higher prices are trying to reduce their losses as the stamp was released. Now it is a matter of inquiry that when the stamps were in safe custody since 2010,what is the reason behind short supply. It is also surprising that philatelic bureau of CBPO which is known for its transparent and responsible working has not supplied this stamp to PD Account holders with mentioning “NOT RECEIVED”.FDC of this stamp was supplied without stamp.
