    Everyone is aware of the unprecedented disaster in Uttarakhand which has left lakhs of our countrymen in the nightmare of death and distress. Help is rushing in there from all parts of the country and abroad in the shapes of personal contributions, organisational helps and state aids. We inherit the tradition of discharging our responsibilities extending our help to the victims of the fateful incident.

        The CGCC, West Bengal has called for the contribution of Rs.50/- and Rs.30/- from employees of different categories. As the situation demands immediate response, all comrades are requested to complete the collection in their units / divisions within first week of July and send the total collection to the Circle Unions. Circle Unions will handover the entire collected amount to CGCC.

         We have learnt that our department is also considering to appeal for contribution of one-day salary from each employee. Circle Unions welcomes such call and would like to request all comrades to come forward voluntarily to donate the amount, but at the same time, is also of the opinion that the decision of such appeal should also be effected in the spirit of request, i.e., options should be called for such contribution. It must not be imposed like an administrative decision and make our employees to render the amount against their will. A letter will be issued to Circle Administration after circulating the decision.

        The situation will be reviewed in the Circle Working Committee meeting on 12th July 2013 at Tarapada Memorial Hall.
