It seems that the level of Corruption and mismanagement is very deep rooted in Dehradun Philatelic Bureau . The number of Complaints and RTI’s being received are pointing towards rampant mismanagement and favouritism which is being shown towards a particular dealer / cartel who are siphoning of material from the bureau and selling them in the market at exorbitant rates openly defying the Laws of Land and thus depriving genuine Philatelist their rightful dues .
We are quite sure that many of our readers must have had such experiences to share with or may have already filed complaints . Please do let us know about such experiences so that appropriate action is initiated . Please remember ” JUSTICE DELAYED IS JUSTICE DENIED”.

Indianstampghar wishes its readers a very Happy and Joyous Raksha Bandhan today (24 Aug 2010)
The festival of Raksha Bandhan is dedicated to the love and affection shared between a brother and a sister. On this day, sisters pray for long life of their brothers and ask God to bless them with his blessings. Brothers, in turn, give them rakhi gifts and promise to care life long.
Rakhi is basically a sacred thread of protection embellished with the love and affection of a sister for her brother. This day is also known as Raksha Bandhan and celebrated on the full moon day of the Hindu month of Shravana in India. This frail of thread of Rakhi is considered as stronger than iron chains as it binds the most beautiful relationship in an inseparable bond of love and trust.
