OUR MEMBERS WORKING IN CHENNAI CITY REGIONAL OFFICE HAVE BEEN DENIED ROTATIONAL TRANSFER TO CIRCLE OFFICE. ADDING SALT TO INJURY THE CCRO ADMINISTRATION IS INSTALLING BIO-MERIC SYSTEM MUCH AGAINST THE INTERESTS OF OUR MEMBERS AT THE COST OF EX-CHEQUER. OUR CIRCLE UNION STRONGLY OPPOSE TO IT AND HAS GIVEN A LETTER TO DROP THE PROPOSAL. THE COPY OF THE LETTER IS ENCLOSED FOR PERUSAL OF OUR MEMBERS.
The Postmaster General

Sub: - Installation of Bio-Metric System in CCRO-reg.
It is learnt that the Administration is contemplating to install Bio-Metric System in the CCRO to monitor the presence of the CCRO Staff.
The staff working in CCRO has already been under the impression that they are working in an island alienated from Circle Office as the assurance given by the PMsG at the time of formation of CCRO was flouted in the air by the administration that the staff working CCRO would be considered for RT every year along with CO staff. The staff in CCRO are working under great pressure due to increased work just like breathing under water and it has become the routine to leave the office very late after office-hours. It is disheartening to bring it to the kind notice of the PMG that instead of appreciating the extended work culture, the administration is installing Bio-Metric System to monitor their presence.
When the Government of India is issuing guidelines to economize and to be prudent in expenditure this Circle Union fails to understand what prompted the administration to install Bio-metric System at a huge cost.
This Circle Union, therefore, requests the PMG (CCR) to kindly drop the proposal of installing the Bio-Metric System so that the CCRO staff may be allowed to work in a feel-free atmosphere and not under the surveillance system.
Thanking you, Sir,
