It feels like a rupture of trust when an organization/service that maintains extraordinary convention neglects to illuminate us of such a fundamental part of the function with an earlier notice. It appears to be lamentable that 65 years of custom are being toppled in a jiffy.

We might want to convey to your notice that we examined this issue with the Hon’ble I&B Minister last night and were guaranteed an answer yet haven’t heard once more from anyone. We are left with no decision yet to express our failure and pass on to you that by the day’s end we feel down and out as opposed to regarded for our work.
