Dear All,

Please find attached the proforma for UPSC Pexs (AUPO members) . We need to consolidate the country wide data of AUPO Members/State wise. As soon as these details are compiled (for the whole country) , we can finalise the date for the National Convention/National Coordination meeting at Delhi.

A brief extract from the proforma will also be utilised for publishing in our souvenir/ updating our AUPO website/blog.
This data would also be crucial for updating/revising electoral roll /membership records of AUPO .

A lot of members who have resigned from the PSA are still being shown as members of the PSA in their electoral roll and this needs to be sorted out .

The data can include an additional list of AUPO members who have either retired or have taken voluntary retirement. (eg.Dr. Sajad Rizvi who is now with IGNOU, Dr. G.R. Syed, with Jamia, Sh. Sajan Venniyoor, Sh. D. Chandran etc)

Filled proforma along with photo may please be sent to Convenor, AUPO, Sh. L.S. Bajpai, 82, Broadcasting House, Sansad Marg, New Delhi-110001. On top of the cover please mention Proforma (AUPO).

An additional copy may be sent to Sh. P. Raja Rao, South Zone Coordinator, AUPO and Dy. Director, Regional Training Institute, All India Radio ,Hyderabad. (ph. 09440765444). This will help AUPO to ensure that duplicate sets are available in two parts of the country.

We would request each of you on this mailing list to take an active role in this and circulate it to as many of our members as possible. State coordinators/unit coordinators need help/support in the circulation of this proforma , so that information of all AUPO members can be collected at the earliest.

A copy of the filled proforma should also be kept locally by the respective members.

Inspite of a lot of pressure put on the Directorate, only 29 CRs have surfaced.
This includes a couple of persons who were on the first list of 147 persons.

What happened to the other CRs?
Who do we hold responsible for the missing CRs?
DG AIR is the custodian of our CRs. Procedures are clearly laid out for collection of our CRs year wise,

A great show of locating our CRs is also being made in SI- B for the past many days.
After this extended drama , less than 29 CRs have been located ( some names are also on the first list of 147 persons).

This selective pick and choose method is clearly useful for corrupt people to make money.
The custodians of our CRS want us to approach them one by one, and request for help to locate our CRs .

They want us to grease their palms before we get the benefit of a scheme given to all Government servants.

If you check the engineers list on airnet, u can see , who is eligible, who is not eligble, and whose CRS are still pending..
Why are things so different in the programme side?
How funny, that MACP is issued from the bottom of the Pexs seniority list,
rather than the top as in the rest of Government.

The more pressure we put, the more CRs will emerge.
