WE are bringing out another readers experience at the Dehradun Philatelic Bureau. The complaints are similar and it is need of the moment for authorities to take action on these issues and prevent this rampant mismanagement and high handedness at Dehradun Philatelic Bureau. The issues raised are highlighted below.

Dear sir
I am from Dehradun  and  I would like to share some real facts and my experience  of Dehradun Philatelic Bureau.

1. Uttrakhand Postal Circle released six booklets  on various subjects  during  last  six months but not a single piece is available for common philatelist like me @ Rs 50 the issue price but you can surprisingly purchase any number of copies  @Rs 400 each from a Particular Dealer in Dehradun.

2.Uttrakhand  Postal circle’s official  provided  only 100 pieces of CWG Baton relay Covers  for  philatelists all over  India  .This piece of information was given to me by Mr Sharma  Bureau in charge . Again you can purchase any number of this  CWG Baton relay Covers   on hefty premium from a dealer  sitting next to Mr Sharma. Some preferential treatment has been given to this dealer by some official in India Post.


3. Dehradun Philatelic Bureau has not provided  any FDC, Cancellations of FDC ,information sheets since last  two years  .

4. Philatelic deposit a/c  supply is very  erratic  .Some a/c holders  have not received  any supply since last three years . In supply There is no  FDC, NO  information sheet even if you mentioned in   your a/c   You can receive supply only when you   complain to   high officials other wise no supply is sent.

5. There are no   Tamil Conference  stamps for person like me   in this   Dehradun Philatelic Bureau  But  bureau received some  400 sheets of this stamp. It appears bulk quantity of sheets has been taken by this local dealer.

6.  There is no Rath Yatra Puri Temple  m/s  in  bureau  for common philatelists / Collectors who want to collect such a stamp or Miniature sheet.

7   The Dehradun Bureau does not send any supplies to sub Post Offices maintaining Philatelic Bureaus like Roorkee , Haridwar , Sharanpur etc so Philatelists in these places run Pillar to post to get a few copies of stamps either from Delhi/ Shimla or From dealers . The sale of stamps should continue upto six months but some particular issues are out of stock within 48 to 72 hours of release/receipt.

Dehradun Philatelic Bureau is working  for  dealer sitting next to  Mr Sharma  Bureau in charge He is sole owner of this bureau  . He  does whatever  he want . I  do my purchase  from Shimla and Delhi   It costs me heavily  and I missed some items regularly.

Rakhi Envelopes  2007 – India Post

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 Envelopes   Issued By Indian Post in 2007 to mark this festival. These Are DuPont Tyvek Envelopes. Cost Rs 5 each.

CONTRIBUTED BY SURESH RAO ,BANGALORE

In the Genuine interest of Public and Philatelists we wish to Put across an RTI filed to get details about the corruption taking place at Dehradun Philatelic Bureau. A nexus has been established between Dealer and  India Post Staff to deny Philatelic Items to Public , issue them in limited quantity to create scarcity and then sell it to Philatelists / Public via back door at Premium , even the INDIA POST LOGO is being used to promote private dealer.
The Special Covers , Booklets , Latest stamps are not being supplied across the counter but even outstation Money Orders / Drafts / Postal Orders are being returnted back immediately without supply of Items.
To name a few – Items like CWG Baton relay Covers , World Girl Guides Centenary Covers , MahaKumbh Covers and Booklets are under the scrutiny.

The high handedness by staff at the Bureau should be looked into to prevent any further damage to the reputation of INDIA POST .

WE invite other Philatelists to share any such unpleasant experiences they have had with Dehradun Philatelic Bureau  and in case they have also filed RTI on any such issue.
