Especially in guest houses, canteen, staff room etc. still only PABX Extension are available. We have been asked to report such matters to the CIT C&S. All the Circle General Secretaries are requested to bring to our notice the shortcomings in the Tarang Scheme and whether sufficient numbers of land line connections have been provided in the places where it is intended to be provided as per the instant instructions.
In view of the above, the available members of the Secretariat decided to defer the agitational programme. The Secretariat profusely thank all the Circles and General members for preparing themselves for the agitational programme.
