The Secretary ,
Department of Posts,
Subject: - Prayer for justice against sexual harassment at work place.
Kindly refer to this union letter of even number dated 08-07-2013 vide it which highhandedness and biased behavior of SRM `GH` Division Guwahati was brought into your kind notice.
Now he has crossed all limits by calling a physically lady ugly. She is 60 years old and superannuating on 31-07-2013. On phone he said to this physically challenged lady ““Office Me Quon cha chehara Dekhana ate hain”. This words of SRM `GH` Division demoralized her.
The matter did not end here she has a adopted daughter with all formalities prescribed under the adoption act. But vide letter B-173/part/ch-II dated 21-06-13 SRM `GH` Division raised a question that how she could be a mother of a adopted child being a physically challenged woman & thereby insulted her publically among the staff through his this letter. This shows his highhandedness and biased behavior to delay her retirement benefits.
Your goodself is very serious on sexual harassment and has called for reports from circles recently.
We urge upon you to kindly direct CPMG Assam Circle to take a serious view in this matter and shift the SRM `GH`Division Guwahati who does not fit to head a unit where ladies are directly under his control to maintain congenial atmosphere in the Circle.
Directorate No. D.G. Posts No. 16/26/2013-SR Dated 11th July, 2013 refers.
