WORKSHOP ON 5th OCTOBER FOR TYPE & DATA-ENTRY TEST FOR CANDIDATES OF POSTAL ASSISTANT EXAMINATION
As notified in this blog earlier, this Circle Union (AIPEU Group-C, affiliated to National Federation of Postal Employees alias NFPE, the largest union of Postal Employees in India) has arranged the workshop for type and Data Entry Test for the candidates for recruitment in Postal Assistant cadre on 5th October 2014, 1-00 P.M., at Tarapada Memorial Hall, 37 Ganesh Chandra Avenue, Kolkata-13.
Please note that the objective of this workshop will be to explain the nature of the test and some useful tips will be discussed in the workshop which would help the candidates facilitate their preparation and effectively reproduce their abilities in the test.
For accurate direction of the venue (Tarapada Memorial Hall, on first floor of Calcutta Postal Club) You can track it from your Tab or smart phone or simply note the landmarks on a piece of paper. For easy reach, please drop or reach North Gate of Chandni Chowk Metro Rail Station (facing Yogayog Bhawan and Air India Office) and locate Khadi Gramodyog Bhavan. Walk along the same footpath leaving Gramodyog Bhavan on your left hand side and turn left reaching the first crossing.
Swachh Bharat Mission, a dream project of the Central Govt for making India clean by 2019, will be formally launched on coming 2nd October 2014. The day co-incidentally is also the day of Maha Ashtami of Durga Puja in West Bengal this year. Enough confusion has already been created, mostly by media, regarding cancellation of leave on that date and mandatory presence etc. As it is one of the most auspicious days of religious festivals here involving many customs and rituals like 'Anjali', our staffs are naturally anxious to know the factual situation.
Circle Union has gathered yesterday that in the letter from the Secretary (Posts) Smt. Kaveri Banerjee, there is no mention of cancellation of leave on 2nd October. In an inner-office order of the Circle Office yesterday, all tiers of officers/supervisors of the C.O. have been requested to attend the conference room on that day with staffs under their control to take a pledge of Swachh Bharat, where Chief PMG will lead. So far we have learnt, similar order may be sent today to all divisions/units. There is no mention of cancellation of national holiday or Maha Ashtami.
A clean India is like a dream to all of us, so like all responsible citizens we also welcome it. However, as the media has already confused many of us by their contribution of imagination in their reports, The Circle Unions are wriritng to the Chief PMG today to clear the air. Our secretaries and activists are requested to go through the order as and when received, and guide our comrades accordingly. If necessary, feel free to contact Circle Union.
Finally, we have a little confusion of our own. Cleanliness drive in this way is definitely a noble challenge. But does 'cleanliness' --- as dreamt by Mahatma Gandhi, only involved removal of dirts, wastages and arrangement of sanitation? Does he not dreamt also of an India clean from corruptions, oppressions and centralisation of wealth to few people? Would the nation be able to see a true and sincere drive for such cleanliness from the leaders of our country? We are also ready to support our Govt in that effort. Will this waiting ever end?

In order to discuss the charter of demands with regard to the above said programme, Member (Operations) has kept a meeting with the Secretaries General, NFPE and FNPO in his chamber on Thursday, the 18/09/2014 from 0930 hrs. to 1030 hrs. You are requested to kindly make it convenient to attend.

Sub: - Declaration of assets and liabilities by Govt. Employees - exhibiting the details of movable assets in the website - regarding.
All the Central Govt. employees, as per the latest order of the Department of Personnel & Training (DOP&T) have to declare their assets and liabilities, both movable and immovable, as well as their spouses and dependents latest by 15th December 2014. All these informations would be then be put up by the respective ministries on their website accessible to everyone.
A large number of Central Govt. Employees have expressed their fear that putting up details of movable assets such as jewellery and cash in hand and bank would pose a security threat to them and their dependents, leave their children vulnerable to kidnapping and ransom demands.
There are various sources the Government employees would have accumulated wealth such as gift from parents, grandparents property, self-earning, wife-side property, or children’s contribution etc. Putting this information in the public domain would leave them and their family members vulnerable.
It is therefore requested that necessary action may be taken in this regard, so that all such information as stated above shall not be displayed on public domain.
