DO NOT ACCEPT A VISITING CARD OR ANY OTHER PAPER FROM STRANGERS!!
PLEASE READ BELOW.
A MESSAGE FROM MUMBAI POLICE.
Be Alert
This has been sent originally by a member of the Mumbai police force.
Share with everybody you know, particularly your wife, sisters, daughters,
nieces, mother, female friends and colleagues. At a petrol pump, a man
came over and offered his services as a painter to a lady filling petrol
in her car and left his visiting card. She said nothing, but accepted his
card out of sheer kindness and got into the car.

The man then got into a car driven by another person.

As the lady left the service station, she saw the men following her out of
the station at the same time. Almost immediately, she started to feel
dizzy and could not catch her breath. She tried to open the window and
realized that the odour was on her hand; the same hand with which she had
received the card from the person at the service station. She then noticed
the men were immediately behind her and she felt sheneeded to do something
at that moment. She drove into the first driveway and began to honk her
horn repeatedly to ask for help.

The men drove away but the lady still felt pretty bad for several minutes
after she could finally catch her breath.

Apparently, there was a substance on the card that could have seriously
injured her. This drug is called ‘BURUNDANGA’ (Not known To People So Far,
but sufficient information is available in the Net) and it is used by
people who wish to incapacitate a victim in order to steal from or take
advantage of them. This drug is four times more dangerous than the date
rape drug and is transferable on a simple card or paper. So please take
heed and make sure you don’t accept cards when you are alone or from
someone on the streets. This applies to those making house calls and
slipping you a card when they offer their services.

PLEASE SEND THIS  ALERT TO OTHERS.

7 bank unions call for strike on February 28; services may be hit

NEW DELHI: As many as seven employees’ unions of banks have given a call for strike on Tuesday, demanding stringent measures to recover bad loans and opposing outsourcing of non-core activities to the private sector.

“Seven bank unions of nine have given strike call for stringent and effective measures to recover bad loans of banks and unilateral imposition of Khandelwal committee recommendations,” All India Bank Employees Association ( AIBEA) General Secretary C H Venkatachalam told PTI.

Besides, the unions are opposing banking sector reforms and outsourcing of jobs, he said, claiming that about 8,00,000 employees and officers affiliated with these unions will participate in the strike.
There are about 87,000 branches of public sector banks across the country. The state-owned lenders control about 75 per cent of banking business.

Meanwhile, many banks including, SBI, Corporation Bank, State Bank of Mysore have said that if the proposed strike materialises, normal services may have to be curtailed.

The Centre-appointed Khandelwal panel had suggested a slew of measures, including outsourcing more and more non-core activities in a time-bound manner.

The panel had also recommended raising the standard of recruitment, including the methodology and content for tests, besides making the testing of computer skills mandatory for both officers and clerks.
The Khandelwal committee on human resources (HR) had also suggested that the minimum qualification for clerks and sub-staff should be graduation and class 10, respectively.
