    Today I`ve received my delivery of pre-ordered Khadi stamps in a badly mauled cover with its left side fully ripped & open. Surprisingly all the 10 miniature sheets are intact. Given the condition of the polylined enveloped thank my stars nothing dropped out from the cover damaged so badly.

    i had a very bad impression from the indipex secretariat. My payment for the khadi stamp was cleared on 9th feb 2011. But till date i have not recieved it. When repeated reminders over mail and telephone were of no avail I went to dak bhawan today. To my surprise almost everybody was sitting idle in the philately department or the WPE and started giving excuses. It seemed that they were highly engrossed into ccorruption and making use of public money. the height was that even in delhi they said it will take some days when they will be sending me the package. I have heard that there are many such complains about the khadi stamp and my stamp.

    • Special Stamps ?
      Two Special Covers on 300 years of Banda Bahadur’s battle were sent to Chief PMG Mumbai and Punjab. Mumbai approved the Cover, Punjab gave NO reply to 9 communications and a personal meeting.
      Just before the Cover’s release, Khanna CPMG Punjab, got the release cancelled in Pune through the India Post HQ, New Delhi. The order was later reversed and Cover released. Banda spent 25 years in MP State, 20 years in Maharashtra, and the reamaining years in Panjab; Khanna’s kind have balkanised thinking that every state cannot commemorate an event which he thinks is Punjab specific.
      Secretary Postal Deptt. did not reply to complaint against CPMG Punjab.
      At the bottom, believe me India Post has many dedicated postmen and post officers !
