There are  leaders who claim success is theirs & failure is others. 

Recently the DOP has sent a D.O letter to all Circles  with a copy to one federation. 

We published D.O letter on our website on the same day itself in the usual manner, but other federation published D.O letter of DOP with a remark that

IMPACT OF NFPE'S LETTER NO. PF-66/2016 DATED 12.11.2016.

It is their practice to claim the success in their favour and putting failures on the other shoulder.

In this connection, we wish to submit to our colleagues, please go through our letters and D.O letter of DOP on many issues mentioned in our letters  addressed by the department .

In regard to marking to one federation name in the letter, SG FNPO spoke to DDG (FS), she replied that it is the mistake & it will be rectified.

I appeal sister federation don't claim all success is yours. If you want to do so accept  failures also yours.

Don’t allow to deposit old currency note of Rs 500 and RS 1000 in Small Savings Schemes.
