HR CE department is part of Government of Tamil Nadu. Hence it would be a good gesture to have a website like
http://www.tnhrce.gov.in/
However they are having a website like
http://www.tnhrce.org/ 
.ORG is normally for non-profit NGO organizations in Internet.  We have sent a petition to Government of Tamil Nadu towards this vide GOVTN/E/2017/01478

We have an observation from Tamil Murasu ePaper dated 26th May 2017 page 5 that the temple pond belonging to Sri Sthalasyana Perumal (Mahabalipuram) is in a dilapidated condition. We have escalated this issue to the office of Prime Minister, Ministry of Water Resources and Government of Tamil Nadu besides an email to the HRCE commissioner (info@tnhrce.org)

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.
