SPECIAL CIRCULAR -01/11-12 23/10/2012 URGENT SPECIAL CIRCULAR TO ALL AFFILIATES
Greetings and best wishes. I’m sure you all are enjoying every moment of the ongoing festive season marking celebrations of Durga Puja, Dusshera , Id Dewali ,Chatt and other festivals
I am happy to inform you that all efforts are being made for the 28th Academic Conference and the Golden Jubilee Celebrations in the holy city of Varanasi. The General Secretary and the hosts are engaged in doing everything for the success of the events.
I have been making appeals to all affiliates to lend all support to the organizers as you all are aware that we requested the Mahatma Kasha Vidyapith Affiliated College Teachers’ Association to shoulder the responsibility, with the assurance, that we will actively support them in all possible manner, including raising funds through advertisements & donations. The money will be spent for accommodation purpose.
I thank the State affiliates who have forwarded and registered the names of delegates from their States. However, in spite of highlighting the urgency of the information about participation and sending money, many affiliates are yet to send details of delegates and the Registration fee.
I ,once again, wish to draw the attention of all office bearers of State affiliates & AIFUCTO office bearers that accommodation is a real problem in Varanasi. The city , a very ancient one, is congested with pilgrims and has only limited accommodation facilities. With each passing day, hotels get booked and room availability gets reduced. and hotel charges are escalating. Hence I again request all States to rush complete details of delegates from their organization along with payments details/ DDs for Registration fee.
I am really anxious as we are not getting the exact number of participants, we are really clueless about the number of participation from many units. The larger contingents must understand the gravity of the problem.. However, we have made arrangements and allocated the hotels for those who have sent money and list. Also we need to know the details about arrival and departure days of all of you.
Please note it will not be possible to make hotel arrangements for those who send the money late. Though the last date is 30th November, late comers will have to be housed in dharmasalas, where facilities are very limited. In view of this, I urge the states not to wait any more but rush delegate details and the registration fee very soon. The costs of hotels are also an important factor. Hotels at distance will have logistics problems. Those who are not acquainted with Varanasi may not comprehend the seriousness of the problem. Please cooperate with us to avoid troubles.
