       The P.A.s came out successfully against the vacancies for the years 2005-08 has finally been appointed in all divisions subsequent upon department's decision to obey Hon'ble Kolkata High Court's judgement. It is much awaited and the news have been flashed for the first time from our Circle Conference on 16.09.2011.

          By this time, it is under knowledge of all staffs that receiving some allegations from different individuals towards intransparency and malpractices in recruitment process, their appointment was halted. But this was our apprehension that the malpractice was limited to only few cases which was finally established by court judgements also. But it was the Postal Directorate who chose to treat all cases with same merit and cancelled the entire panel. Then, it was our firm stance that the innocent candidates would be offered immediate appointment while the persons/officials involved in malpractices should be punished instantaneously and such identified appointments be cancelled.

              Our organisation arranged for repeated dialogues with the parents and the candidates, kept consistent liaison with them, wrote series of letters to the circle administration and to the All India Union and our Federation (NFPE) to pursue it with the Directorate, sent savingrams demanding immediate appointments of innocent candidates. Even after the judgement of the High Court, Kolkata, delegation of NFPE, West Bengal met the Chief PMG and strongly demanded their immediate joining, failing which, it was made clear to build up stiff protest/demonstration altogether the candidates and their family members at Yogayog Bhavan after the ongoing festivals. Our view was made clear once again through an 'open letter' to the Chief PMG, which was published in the August 2011 of our Circle Union journal -- 'Sangrami Dak'. There never was any lack of transparency regarding our view. Although some vested corners/organisations as per their inborn nature have continuously and unscrupulously tried to malign and condemn us only to degenerate our organisation. But we are happy and proud of these candidates only because ignoring all these propaganda against us most of them in every division are with us. This has encouraged and strengthened us to go on continuous persuasion till the last, and finally we achieved brilliant success.

             Moreover, among the three candidates ordered by Hon'ble High Court to be reviewed, one was Sri Aritra Konar, son of Sri Debashis Konar, our member since long belonging to RMS WB Division. When Com. Konar was influenced by others to proceed to court again, we insisted him to let his son face the review because we were confident of his merit. We are again happy that he has come out successfully from the review.

               We congratulate all the candidates for their spirit and sustained fight and wish them a prosperous and bright future. We also hope that their entry will obviously enrich our department as well as our organisation.
