India Post has released 4 stamps on Olympics Games Rio 2016 on 5th August 2016. The four stamps depicts the images of four different sports namely Badminton, Boxing, Shooting and Wrestling and are of the denominations Rs5, Rs5, Rs25 and Rs25 respectively. A miniature sheet and six sheetlets have also been released under this stamp issue.
In June 2016 India Post released a set of stamps on Surya Namaskar.Sheetlet of this stamp issue was not provided to philatelic bureaus and PD account holders.E post office is selling this sheetlet at very high price along with a so called pack which includes FDC and MS. Now this is second time that India Post is not providing sheetlets of Rio Olympic stamp issues.Instead of selling individual sheetlets again a pack is introduced which includes 6 sheetlets,1 ms,FDC and brochure.Face value of philatelic material is 1570 Rs and it is being sell in 2200 Rs.India Post is charging money for rough plastic .Full sheet pack and Block 4 packs have also released and available for sell at hyper prices of 350 and 2700 Rs.Now we have some doubts ,with this money game will philatelic base in India not reduced ?Who is responsible for cheating with a philatelist who deposited money in his PD account for sheetlet in advance and not received his desired item in regular supply? We know that India Post officials will never answer these questions but what about philatelic societies and other bodies ? There is a need of debate on these issues.
