Much awaited 3rd week of August 2013 is also over but stamps on Indian Cinema still not made available for sale at any of the bureau throughout the country. The stamps have already been officially released on 3rd May 2013 then why the department is not making these available to the philatelists of this country, why a fix date is not being given to start sale of these stamps across the country. Here we are waiting for the stamps to come but the dealers at ebay are selling the miniature sheets in thousands in one go, how and from where they obtain all these is a matter of concern for an ordinary philatelist. I am reproducing here under a description given on eBay I downloaded.
- Name of the Seller is there.
- Description of the items put for sale is there.
- No. of varieties, its face value, is put in a comprehensive list.
- Post office sealed bundles contain full details of materials as well as from where these were issued.
- It can easily be traced from which office these were issued on record.
- Can these items be sold by India post to someone in full bundles or in huge quantity?
- Is this not an offence if someone from the department, do like this?
- Who can be held responsible for such a lapse?
Will India post take any action in this serious happening, adversely affecting its image?
In addition to this, an ordinary philatelist can buy as much quantity as he wish, any philatelic materials from various dealers in the country though these are out of stocks in all philatelic bureaus throughout the country. A cover released somewhere, today, may not be available there, the next day, but, that, can easily be bought from any dealer across the country, in multiples, the next day.Ordinary philatelists are the most effected by such occurrences, as such i through this write up, request all my fellow collectors, to bring to book, all such black sheep’s within and outside the department.
