I am delighted to inform that first ever case pertaining to deficiency in service of a Philately Deposit Account has been decided in the favour of philatelist. Mr.Ullas Jain opened a philately deposit account at Jaipur GPO in December 2001.The account number furnished to him was PDA 270. Mr.Ullas Jain indented one special cover through the account. Six special covers were not supplied to him. He met Satyanarayan Saini(Sr.postmaster, JPGPO) for the resolution of grievance but the official disposed the matter capriciously. Aggrieved by the department Mr.Ullas Jain approached the court.Case no.790/12 filed by him was allowed by the court on 26 feb 2014. Court ordered disciplinary action against the guilty and compensation of Rs 50000/- for mental harassment.Rs 1500/- for litigation expenses were also ordered.
