Workshop on Philately

West Delhi Philatelic Club has taken an initiative to promote Philately among the Youth and school Children of Delhi and as part of this agenda.
A Joint workshop on philately was organized on 26.08.2010. in Bal Bharati Pulic School, Sector-12, Dwarka,Delhi by West Delhi Philatelic Club and Philatelic Society of Rajasthan. The Workshop was conducted by Mr Vinod Sabharwal, & A.S.Banga of West Delhi Philatelic Club, Mr T Mukerjee and Mr P.M.Bhargava, President Philatelic Society of Rajasthan.
The total 120 students attended the Workshop  and Free Stamps were distributed through school teacher . Audio visual aids were used to develop interest of Children in this Hobby . A PPT presentation was given by Mr Bhargava and a Movie on philately was shown by Mr Sabharwal, Mr Banga gave demonstration on how to remove stamps from a piece of paper. It was a excellent  joint venture.
We intend taking on such ventures in Future also . This event was a pure effort of Two Organisations where in NO assistance was taken from INDIA POST . We would request INDIA POST to lend us a helping hand to promote this hobby among the School Children in the Country.

We understand from reliable sources that the coverage on Philatelic Bureaus specially Dehradun has caused ripples among the Staff and the cartel operating .

The bureau has apparently suddenly got hold of QBR Covers ( Maybe due to RTI the covers have been returned by dealer or they have got out of Bureau Almirahs) and have started dispatching to PD acct holders without the proper date of dispatch entries and even to those who have not given or placed orders (These were dispatched on 26th August,2010 and were received On 27th August,2010  By local PDA account holders) .
Now the efforts are on to save the Post office Official with such acts . A few appreciation letters have suddenly arrived at CPMG Office/Philatelic Bureau to assist these officials at the Bureau .The fact however remains that corruption is rampant in this particular bureau and Private parties enjoy Official patronage at the cost of Philatelists and items are being cornered by them.
The bigger questions remain unanswered and we do hope that RTI applicants do get their queries attended to and get correct replies and the the applications are not put under the carpet.
A receipt of such a post haste dispatch is enclosed sent by one of our readers.
