Ever since the merger of State Bank of India happened with its associates the newer problems faced by the bank itself are inflated debts on their books due to brand rebuilding and advertising. As a result of this they are devising to the following tricks.

  1. Increase in minimum balance for the customers
  2. Secretly activating the debit cards for customers’ whose accounts do not have debit cards and if customers raise voice they say it is the customer’s responsibility to deactivate the debit cards and since the card was active in the last financial year the charges can not be reversed.
  3. The branches are tight-lipped and are directed to talk with the call centers only who involve in parrot talk and put the problems of customers under the carpets.

A couple of weeks back I was transiting to Pallavaram by connecting at Metro and switching to MTC from Tirusulam bus stand. The time was almost 1830 hours but the national flag on the airport complex was not taken down.

I believe our National Flag code of conduct stipulates that it should be hosted during sunrise and taken down at sunset. One peer commuter was telling that since the lighting ambience is more the flag is always on the brighter area and perhaps this may be a source of exemption.

A clarification has been sent to Ministry of Civil Aviation dated 2nd May 2017 vide MOCAV/E/2017/00870

Update from Ministry on 5th May 2017 is below.

The reply of Airport Director, Chennai is as under – In connection with the reference made of giant National flag being flown at Chennai Airport, it is to mention that it’s a 100ft. tall monumental flag illuminated from ground and is permitted to be flown in accordance with provisions/guidelines contained with Flag foundation of India, similar flags are flown at other places across India and is not lowered after dusk, no constitutional provisions are violated in this regard. In view of above, matter stands disposed off.

We have been observing that for the past few months the route number 70C from Chennai CMBT to Mambakkam via E Tambaram had not been operating. We requested clarification from the transport department vide GOVTN/E/2017/00403 as below.

Dear Team,

There is either a steep deficiency of bus frequency 70C (CMBT – Mambakkam) via Tambaram. Most of the current 70C terminate at Tambaram West. There used to a Mambakkam route extending from Tambaram through Camp Road. These days the bus is not operating.

Kindly re-operate this bus and increase the frequency of the same please.

The response from transport corporation on  27 April 2017 is as below.

Due to poor patronage the Route No.70C Extn (CMBT – Mambakkam) route was modifited and it is not feasible to restore again. Also due to operational constraint, it is not feasible to extend the route from tamabaram to Mambakkam. In metropolitan city operation, it is not possible to connect each and every place by direct services. Lr.No.120/22050/TRG3/MTC/2017. Dated.19.04.2017.

Today I visited Anna Nagar (W) Extension Post Office next to HP Petrol Bunk and Ambattur Revenue Office in order to open a savings account which I had been intending for a very long time. A few of the observations from this post office are hereunder.

  1. After filling the form, they unnecessarily insisted on turning me back citing necessity of ‘Witness’ in the form. A good samaritan who was also trying to open the account volunteered to affix the witness for me.
  2. When my turn came in counter, she told me no ATM card and try visiting after MAY END. What is going on? For a simple ATM card I should wait for a month and a half and even after that I should try asking them?
  3. When I asked at least if I would get a passbook she told yes but only on Monday. Something was wrong, I sensed and asked are you sure it is Monday and she affirmatively replied Yes Monday. Interestingly, Monday is May Day and I think it is a federal and state holiday in India.
  4. When I tried to give a 2000 rupee note to open an account with 1000 rs. she turned me again asking to get a change. Another rude behavior.
  5. When I gave two 500 rupee notes she was asking me weird questions like ‘Why are you opening account here when you are in Tambaram area’ (I told my workplace is nearby and by the time I cross Tambaram the counters there would not have opened).
  6. Next question she made is give the list of all NSC certificates that you have so that she need to cross verify and give the same CIF for this account. Some of my NSC is from Pune.

I don’t understand the essence of these crazy things and I can only infer if she was trying to avoid servicing the account opening request and was attempting all different ploy to achieve her goal. IndiaPost is doing a very hard work in marketing its savings account and banking business and your service is absolutely wonderful but these bad workforce are indeed spoiling the hard earned image of the department.

Response from Postal Department on 5th May 2017

Recently we found an issue of rampant smoking near a tea stall in Ambattur Industrial Estate. We have tried to bring the same to the kind attention of TNPCB. However about a month later the response from the department says it does not fall within their purview, it is a public nuisance case and needs to be looked by state police department.

The state police department was not able to be reached as of publishing this note.
